Ontario, CANADA :: Tama Lynn & Amanda :: Spark Of My Heart // Real LGBTQ Engagement

:: Spark Of My Heart::

Photographed & Submitted by :: {MRSter Approved} Oren & Jones Photography

Local to Niagara Falls, Ontario Canada, these two lovely ladies met online and fell in love in 2007. There was an instant spark, and they’ve have been absolutely inseparable ever since.

With a love for family, friends, and baseball, there’s never a dull moment.

In May of 2015, Tama Lynn, in front of family and friends, played a short video she had put together about their relationship. Chronicling their first date, family vacations, their dog Lacey and cat Sebastian. She then got down on one knee and presented Amanda with a ring. A ring she had specially made out of Ammonite; a rare Canadian gem which radiates a brilliant rainbow.

She was thrilled when she heard Amanda say ‘yes!’

Parin & Sandro :: An Intimate Engagement :: Toronto, Canada // Real LGBT Engagement

:: An Intimate Engagement ::

Submitted by :: Stephen James Kerr of Julius & James

Parin and Sandro are two American educators who met in San Francisco, and who moved to Toronto to pursue their academic work.

Their idea for a great engagement shoot was to simply capture them connecting at their cute century home in Toronto’s hip Dundas St. West neighbourhood, and in the nearby Trinity Bellwoods Park. And it was a great idea.

We shot them starting at home, and captured some of the details that surround them including their maturing vegetable and fruit garden. We then walked out together via Dundas and Ossington to Trinity Bellwoods Park, their favourite place to relax and watch the world go by.

Parin and Sandro’s deep soul connection shines through in these intimate photos. We get a little window into a warm and caring relationship, as they share the simple joys of facing daily life together. Isn’t that what marriage is all about?
