Everyone who knows me, knows that I’m a huge fan of the “unusual” and I couldn’t be more stoked when Kayla came to me with the idea of doing an engagement shoot at a scrap yard! This is definitely quite rare as most don’t open to public access, but luckily her fiancé, Michael, owns one downtown — Cooper’s Iron & Metal — a family-ran business founded in 1946, has remained one of the largest independent processors of recycled metals in Toronto. While most people see this as a junk yard, I surely see this a local photographer’s playground with tons of cool colors and unique textures to play with! And what was even more fun, was how Kayla was able to inject a unique flair by wearing some cool custom coveralls herself! Although, I surely don’t think she has big intentions of becoming a “scrap wife”! 😜
Many thanks to you both for bringing me along to my ideal playground! 😆 My warmest congratulations on your engagement! I can’t wait to capture your wedding day!
