I loved this couple! Lauren & Avi’s wedding was the perfect blend of vintage elegance and uninhibited fun. Lauren looked incredible in her vintage inspired gown, and Avi complimented her so nicely in his slim fitting suit…sleek!
There were so many moments of this day that stood out to me…Their sweet first look made my heart melt. During the Bedeken, the couples’ parents had a chance to whisper their blessings to their children on their wedding day, I loved that those wishes and blessings were form the heart and just for the bride and groom [I might have shed a tear or two behind my camera]. As the evening went on, and the sun set beautifully over Angus Glen, the party began, in my 11 years of shooting weddings I have not seen such a lively, lengthly and joyous horah. Pure awesome!
Lauren & Avi, I wish you all of the happiness your hearts can hold and more. Congratulations on your marriage, I hope it brings you incredible adventures. We were honoured to have been a part of your day.
There are so many absolutely breathtaking pockets in and around Toronto…every time we have an engagement shoot coming up, I cannot wait to see what suggestions each couple makes. I love how each backdrop is so reflective of each individual couple.
This session, photographed by Adam, was as lush as Toronto can get, and Tammy and Andrew enjoyed their scenic tour off the beaten path in High Park
I loved how Andrew emailed me a few days ago, and wanted to surprise Tammy for her birthday with a sneak peek of their engagement photos…super sweet guy!
Tammy, I hope you have the happiest of birthdays! Enjoy your day!
Oh Eileen & Artur…we had such a great time with you!
Artur was completely enamoured with Eileen when they had their first look, he mentioned to me he wished he could take a million photos to remember how beautiful she looked. Just melted my heart.
Eileen’s smile never left her face, this girl completely enjoyed every minute of her wedding day, even when she broke the heel of her shoe as they entered the hall…she just kept on dancing.
It was a picture perfect summer’s day and a beautiful celebration.
Congrats you two!
Adorable…and super fun…that is how I would describe Stacie & Stephan, plus on top of that they are all kinds of awesome!
I love how Stacie & Stephan chose spots that meant something to them, from the gorgeous park near where Stacie grew up [where during our session we rescued a man in a wheelchair from a sand trap, and the entire time we were shooting got chewed on by mosquitoes, I swear they grow them larger in Hamilton], to Stephen’s student house where they first met when he was a student at McMaster, to Westdale Village. Every spot meant something, each one had a story and memories attached to it.
Here are a few fun tid bits I learned about these two…they are total jokers, just hilarious, I think my cheeks were hurting after this shoot, and I was not even in front of the camera. Stephen is a former child model, you might have seen him in an A&W commercial with the bear in the 80s, totally cool, he totally worked it the whole shoot [just kidding Stephen], but Stacie you stole the show, I know you think you’re a total ham, but you are beyond gorgeous!
Fantastic session, this was one of two sessions I had over two days, and both of them, were so very different, and each in their own each was super awesome!
It’s one of the perks of my job to be an observer…and I love it, Carolina and Stephan are adorable together. When I heard the story of their proposal, of how Stephen proposed with a poem, my heart melts, each and every couple has such a unique proposal story, and each one reflects the personalities and dynamics of the couple and relationship.
Carolina & Stephan’s engagement story was a perfect summer’s eve in Toronto, spent exploring the University of Toronto campus, laughing, hugging, sneaking a kiss in, and just filled with so much love.
Here are a few of their photos.
