We have never been so excited to share an engagement photo shoot as I am with this one.
Ten years ago we fell in love with the struggling yet passionate Noah Calhoun, all the while he was smitten over the seventeen-year-old heiress Allie Hamilton. Few chick flicks can stand the test of time. The Notebook, however, is in a league of it’s own.
To create a unique, non-traditional engagement shoot, the couple along with their photographer decided to re-create their magical love story inspired by one we’ve all fallen in love with.

“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.”
