Diego and I love winter, albeit for very different reasons. Being an avid snowboarder, Diego loves the cold and the snow. Me, on the other hand, I’ve only started to learn snowboarding, and I’m not a fan of the cold and snow. I just love the holidays, family time, and the festive decorations everywhere. Last year, I introduced Diego to the awesomeness that are Christmas markets. I absolutely adore Christmas markets, and it looks like that rubbed off on Diego a bit as well, as when Laura and Alen decided to do their engagement photoshoot at the Toronto Christmas Market, both our eyes lit up in excitement.
The Toronto Christmas Market transforms the Distillery District every year with festive little shops and vendors, carolers by the Christmas tree, and of course, all the beautiful lights. This year, the Distillery District truly outdid itself. Holiday lights were absolutely everywhere at the Christmas market. As wedding photographers in Toronto, this was a dream come true.
While Laura and Alen were originally a little hesitant to do a winter photoshoot because of the cold, we all bundled up and had a blast together. Weaving through the paths, we discovered new light patterns at every corner. Love signs, hearts and stars, Christmas tree lights, and even a light tunnel. Laura and Alen happily cozied up for every shot, and while Alen told us he was not comfortable in front of the camera, you would have never known it by watching him interact with Laura as we snapped away.
A visit to the Toronto Christmas Market wouldn't have been complete without a ride on the merry-go-round and a cup of steaming rich hot chocolate from Maisonette to warm us up!! Laura and Alen, thank you for braving the cold with us! :)
And if you are a wedding photographer in the GTA, a visit to the Toronto Christmas market with your couple is a must!! Happy Holidays!!!
