Joanna & Bart – Toronto Engagement Photography

This waterfront sunrise engagement session in Toronto was so worth the early wake up. I am beyond thrilled to have spent the very early hours of the morning hanging out by the Humber Bay Bridge with Joanna and Bart. You guys have my heart, seriously. You are perfect together and individually just the most genuine people. As in the types that would think about rescuing baby raccoons from under the docks during their session. I heart you both.

Toronto, you have my heart, truly, you are a beautiful city, with glorious light, nooks and crannies, with surprises around every corner, and so much city to explore it makes me giddy. Seeing you, a bit sleepy, but so beautiful during the wee hours of the morning, with your magentas and blues, showing off all of your colours, make me fall in love with you all over again.

Joanna & Bart, I was excited to capture your wedding right when I met you both. After this engagement session, which is for certain one of my favourites, and after doing a site visit to Adamo Estate Winery and getting a taste of what to expect for your wedding day and am literally counting down the days until you guys say I do.

Yay for early mornings, yay for awesome people, yay for love!

Veronica & Julius – Doctor’s House Wedding

We love shooting weddings at The Doctor’s House, this was the second one this year, and honestly, each time we do shoot there we find new hidden spots to use, the light changes from season to season, making it super fun for us to explore and get creative with our images.

Veronica and Julius are basically my neighbours, our paths must have crossed at some point, considering both my husband and I, and Veronica and Julius spend a lot of time at the local Lowes or Home Depot [gotta love home projects]. I got to know about they love for little projects and renovations, during our awesome engagement session on the University of Toronto campus earlier this year. Veronica dreams ups and designs the projects, and Julius being the handy guy he is, makes them reality. So in my opinion, that’s quite a perfect combo.

Their beautiful wedding was something Veronica has been designing for a long time, and Julius delivered. Their beautiful Doctor’s House wedding was the perfect combo of awesome vendors coming together and a lot of thought, heart and work put in by the couple themselevs. There were so many beautiful DIY projects. The floral stands, Julius made himself, added a woodsy rustic element to the colourful blooms which dressed the tables. The guest signing board, were repurposed hardwood flooring, but with a bit of creative design from Veronica and Julius, it made for such a beautiful keepsake. To top it all off, Veronica made their wedding cake. This was not just any wedding cake, it was so beautifully thought out, and so incredibly complex, with tiers of florals, wood, greenery, and of course a delicious centre, this once one of the prettiest cakes I have yet to photograph. And I could not believe the bride herself, took on the task of making a large, beautiful, yummy cake. It was incredible. Take a look at more of her beautiful work.

Veronica and Julius had a beautiful day. Starting off with some fun getting ready with their friends and family, to a lovely ceremony at their church. We then headed to The Doctor’s House and Kleinburg for some photos. Their reception was so full of love and support and sweet wished for the bride and groom. I think Veronica and Julius, we’re so happy their vision came to life and everyone was having such an amazing time.

Veronica and Julius, thank you for trusting us to capture your wedding day memories. I hope you enjoyed your magical honeymoon, congrats!!!
