Cindy & Jean-Nicola

Engagement / Photographed by Chelsea Gray & Roberto Ugarte / Chertsey, Qc. / Friday, July 23rd 2010

Cindy and Jean-Nicola are going to have quite the traditional wedding this September so I asked them if they’d like to go a little crazy on their engagement shoot. I sent Cindy a few links to the most amazing engagement shoots that have been blogged about recently (one included a take on the movie UP) and she emailed me back that she’d like to head to Jean-Nicola’s cottage in Chertsey Quebec and re-create scenes from their favourite movie “The Notebook”… She promised he’d even grow his beard out and everything! Well, how could I resist? I just had to rent the movie first- apparently I’m “the last woman in the world who hasn’t seen the movie” according to the kid at the rental store. A few things to note: Doesn’t Cindy look exactly like Rachel McAdams? It’s crazy! Plus, if you notice carefully, Jean-Nic doesn’t sport the promised beard (we had to reschedule the shoot to a later date due to thunderstorms and by then, the beard had grown quite long and he had to shave it! I’m so in love with this shoot, check it out:

    AMAZING! Absolutely stunning. Your shots are great and the couple was awesome! Someone Pinned you- congratulations, and I thought the kiss shot in the rain was the actual Notebook photo. Can’t say amazing enough!!!
