This is another internet dating success story, and as you know my husband and I met online, so I am a sucker for these love stories.
Eva and Alfonso met online as well, but to make this even more interesting, spicy and a bit of a challenge, he’s from the US and she lives in the T-dot. So a bit of a long distance love story.
I automatically hit it off with Eva, she is genuine, bubbly and has a laugh that is beyond contagious, plus she owns a lovely lingerie shop [Kathryn's Lingerie - ladies if you need some pretty lacy things, she's your gal], so I’m hoping for a little discount ;o) . She and Alfonso wanted their day to be fun and a family reunion of sorts, plus a great party of course.
They both loved Adam and John, who pushed them all day to get more and more photos, as Eva is first to admit she does not like the camera.
Eva, you looked so lovely, and I am so happy you got to marry your man, surrounded by friends and family.
Mina & Ben met during choir at church, and that played a very important role in their wedding day celebration.
It was a beautiful ceremony, filled with heartfelt vows, beautiful song and surrounded by family and friends.
I love that Ben and Mina gave us a lot of time for photos, nothing makes a photographer happier ;o) Well, maybe having a super sweet couple, just like them.
When I shoot portraits, I really observe people, and I love watching the dynamics between each couple. Ben tried hard to keep everything and everyone on schedule, and in the midst of all the wedding day excitement, Mina was always there to gently stroke his arm, and just calm him a bit. I love seing that. The wordless conversations that happen between people, and how couples understand eachother, even if it’s with a glance.
Mina, you looked stunning, just beautiful. And Ben, well I love a guy in a bow tie…you reminded me of Ken! ;o)
Robyn, you are the best photo partner a girl could have on a wedding day, truly, thank you.

I love the city of Toronto [aside all the drama at City Hall] ;o). When a couple wants to use the city as a backdrop for their photos, I get giddy with excitement!
Lucy and Todd enjoy what Toronto is all about; the architecture, the greenery, the lake, the restaurants and coffee shops. They live right downtown so what better way to spend a Sunday morning.
We had a great time waking up the city together!
I was so excited when Jamie & Justin contacted me.
They were one of the adorable couples that modeled for us for our free engagement workshop. They were in the process of planning their Cabo san Lucas wedding, and wanted to get some Toronto engagement photos done.
Fast forward to two weeks before their destination wedding…they decided to have a very intimate Toronto ceremony surrounded by their immediate families. I’m so glad they called me…my husband and I had a City Hall wedding, followed by a wedding celebration two years later, and to this day I wish I would have hired a photographer for the City Hall ceremony.
Here are a few images from one of the sweetest, most intimate ceremonies I was invited to be a part of, their words to each other were beautiful, their families were brought to tears [as was I, behind the camera...I'm such a suck], it was a perfect snippet of time, and memories they’ll treasure for a lifetime.
Jamie & Justin, congratulations a thousand times, and thank you so much for asking me to capture this moment in your lives, it was such an honour.
After a week of gorgeous April weather, the weekend came and so did the cold temperatures…well, cold if you’re expecting spring weather for your session. ;o) We were!
I think it’s great how meeting the love of your life online has become not so taboo. And I love having that commonality with my couples. I love hearing their stories, and sharing ours.
Jenny & Christian are a perfect match, and who knows if it was not for the magic of the internet their paths would ever cross.
We had a great morning shooting in and around Main Street Unionville, warm up at a local Starbucks…perfect since Jenny & Christian love their java, we even had a chance to take a few shots on the set of a Schneiders commercial…old cars, a lovely old school butcher shoppe…it was surreal, yet it oddly fit.
