Today I have a really fun shoot to share with you: Andrea & David’s Dineen Coffee Co. & Cactus Club Cafe engagement photos! Now I have photographed engagement photos at Dineen Coffee Co. once before and I would like to thank both Dineen and Cactus Club Cafe for being so warm and welcoming to us!
Downtown Toronto is such a beautiful and varied city, with businesses to match. For Andrea & David’s winter engagement session, we chose to walk between two close but very individual locations: Dineen Coffee Co. and Cactus Club Cafe.
Since it was pretty darn chilly outside, the cappuccinos David and Andrea ordered were just the ticket, and we had a great time taking photos in the crazy popular Dineen Coffee Co. It’s clearly a favourite Toronto coffee spot for a reason!
We finished our coffees and walked over to the financial district and First Canadian Place, which was covered in lights for the holidays. As you probably know if you’re reading this – I love any lighting, and always shoot twinkle lights when given the chance.
We stumbled across The Cactus Club Cafe, which we knew was beautiful and we asked if it was possible (if they weren’t too busy), to take some engagement photos inside. The management was incredibly welcoming, and allowed us upstairs to take photos in the beautiful room upstairs with the gorgeous artistic lighting installation of Bocci 28 Pendants. Just a perfect spot to take some dramatic & romantic portraits!
Stay tuned for Andrea & David’s fabulous Thompson Toronto wedding photos, coming later this season!
