We got the most AMAZING weather for this Ajax engagement session on this late summer’s evening in September…absolutely stunning. Vicki & Raaj wanted a location with tall pines to shoot their engagement session and I was lucky enough to find this spot just 15 mins away from where I live. The couple loves spending time outside and traveling and accordingly they wanted a location that was rustic within the GTA…the Durham area is absolutely perfect for these sessions.
Here’s a fun fact about Ajax taken from Wikipedia:
Before the Second World War, the territory in which Ajax is situated was a rural part of the township of Pickering. The town itself was first established in 1941 when a Defence Industries Limited (D.I.L.) shell plant was constructed and a townsite grew around the plant. By 1945 the plant had filled 40 million shells; employed over 9,000 people at peak production; boasted of its own water and sewage treatment plants; a school population of over 600; 50 km (31 mi) of railroad and 50 km (31 mi) of roads. The entire D.I.L. plant site included some 12 km2 (5 sq mi). People came from all over Canada to work at D.I.L.
The burgeoning community received its name in honour of the first significant British naval victory of the war. From December 13 to December 19, 1939, a flotilla of British warships — HMS Ajax, HMS Exeter and HMS Achilles — commanded by Commodore Henry Harwood — engaged and routed the powerful German pocket battleship Admiral Graf Spee at the Battle of the River Plate, near the Uruguayan port of Montevideo in South America. Ajax was chosen as the name of this war-born community.
