Plus a beautiful view of the waterfall just a short hike from the parking lot(check out the picture below). The hike is steep and will take you through rock slopes of the Eardley Escarpment
Caroline reached out to me wanting to get update couple photos done. They’ve been married for over two years now and Caroline just bought a gorgeous rustic floral dress that was perfect for a photoshoot. You don’t need a special event to get your photos taken, simply getting a new dress can be reason enough in my books.
Caroline and Josh lives in the Ottawa Valley, they gladly let me know that they don’t mind driving further away. It was music to my ears to hear them say that. I excitedly started searching for a location. I’ve known about Luskville Falls for a while now, unfortunately not a lot of couple are willing to make the drive. This was the perfect opportunity.
We meet up at the parking lot and hiked up to the falls. It was such a blast meeting them both in person, Caroline smile is contagious and I love that Joshua know exactly what to say to make her laugh. We finished our shoot just in time before it started raining on us.

Leave no trace is meant to protect the land, human foot traffic can greatly change the landscape and eco system of a park. We should do our part to minimize this so that kids of the future can also enjoy the park for years to come.
