My friend, Jason, and I worked on this together. I spotted this neat location on my way to Bowmanville to shoot a wedding and was so excited to get to use it before winter hit. I bought the dress at a vintage store on Queen street. My boyfriend Mitchy was the one who spotted the dress and helped me pay for it. I wasn’t expecting to get a chance to use it before Spring but I made some sketches of what I wanted it to look like.

It was such a mission to actually get to this spot. Jason was terrified we’d have an angry Mr. Gibson type farmer attempt to shoot us off his farm like last time but we met a nice man named Jim who told us he hops the fence all the time in the summer to walk his dog. So after hearing that we were off. Just for the record, I would’ve gone even if Jim didn’t calm Jason’s nerves. We jumped two fences, trekked through alot of mud, jumped over two streams (“jumped” or fell, whatever) and got shocked by a few electric fences. And we did it two days in a row. And both days I forgot the damn book I was supposed to be reading by that tree haha! Too many things to remember.

Anyhow, that’s my story. I still have alot of pictures to go through. Lots with cows. Oh right, forgot to mention I did this all to get to the cows. Apparently someone lets their cows loose on whosever property we were trespassing on so that they can graze every summer. Aren’t we Canadians nice?

I’m not even mad that my idea got rained out by a freak storm. There’s nothing more thrilling than a thunderstorm. It hailed!! I took shelter in the arch of a school with a guy that got caught as well. He managed to sneak out during a break but he came back for me with a bag for my camera hahaha! Awesome dude. Thank you, if you’re reading this.

Here’s a quick mock-up of the original idea:
