One weekend after much planning and using up several rain dates, on one of the most beautiful days this summer Kristina + Jason and I met at High Park for a lovely engagement session. Why High Park, you ask? Because that is where they go for the after dinner strolls and because it is the place where Jason asked Kristina to marry him! High Park is a gorgeous oasis in bustling Toronto and I got a chance to get to know Kristina + Jason and shoot some fantastic images while at it…

I hope you enjoy this sneak peek of their engagement photos!

















I cannot say it enough; I am amazed at how fantastic my clients are. They are always willing to push the envelope with me, to try something new, and I am so absolutely thrilled they chose me to document their memories.

I photographed Karen + William’s engagement shoot recently and was thrilled to shoot their wedding day. The April weather was brutal, and I think their wedding day, was the most bizarre April weather I have seen in a while…it went from pouring rain, to hail to snow, to sunshine, all the while being windy and cold…Karen + Will [+ awesome wedding party] I am so very glad you were happy to be out in the cold rain with me, and brave the elements, as I could not be more pleased with the results…smiles on, umbrellas in hand, 2 awesome locations + a group of fabulous, funny people = complete fun and laughter!

Vendors: Church – Yorkminster Park Baptist Church, Venue – Grand Baccus, Make-Up – Rhia Amio, Flowers – Bluma Flowers, Decor – Fantastik Decorations.

The Bride’s parents house had some gorgeous light and a beautiful piano.

I love this ring shot…mmmm patterns!
Stunning dress + fab shoes…always a fierce combo.
A sharply dressed groom sporting vintage cuff links which belonged to Will’s dad.



The church was huge and beautiful, Karen had a very long walk down the aisle.




The girls were amazing actors…you would never know it was freezing.

The sea of umbrellas. I love it…even with the terrible weather everyone had a smile on their face the entire time.
Bad weather = awesome clouds.
One of my favourite shots from the day…



The umbrella huddle? hut? dome?

Awesome!






Fantastic cake topper…

    Hello, I came across your site while googling Grand Baccus, where I will do my wedding reception.

    I am looking for a nice park in the same area for picture taking. Where were these pictures taken? Which park?

      Hi,

      Congratulations on your upcoming wedding.
      The photos were taken at Alexander Muir Park, near Yonge & Lawrence.

      Best of luck!ReplyCancel

I love observing the way couples interact, how they are with each other, and trying to pick up the little things, those key traits that attracted one to the other…perhaps that is the reason I love photographing people…

This post is the lovely spring wedding of Joanne + Adam, they truly embody the traits I’m talking about, you can just see it when they started to giggle without saying anything to each other, it was just a look that set them off. This was a couple that completely enjoyed their day from start to finish. Their day included a beautiful ceremony, followed by some photos at Adamson Estate, and an awesome reception filled with Polish traditions + delicious food. Their guests were hilariously fun, the entire evening was fantastic.

Congratulations Joanne + Adam! ‘Sto Lat!’ [(One Hundred Years) is a traditional Polish phrase to express good wishes, good health and long life.]

The stained glass in the church was just stunning.
