The charming Distillery District wedding of Tanya and Alex was a perfect combination of contemporary, vintage, rustic, and chic, a true reflection of this hip district found in the east-end of downtown Toronto. We always love shooting in the Distillery Distric, as the heritage buildings, combined with the modern art and sculptures that can be found all around the pedstrian-only streets and paths, make the perfect back-drop for wedding photography.
The Humber Bay Park engagement session of Dominic and Michael was shot with just a couple months to go before their big day! Now, with just a few weeks left, we are so giddy with anticipation for their Thompson Hotel same-sex wedding!
The intimate Niagara-on-the-Lake wedding of Novina and Jason was a sweet and picturesque celebration of love! We absolutely adore the Niagara-on-the-Lake region, and all the gorgeous spots it offers for stunning wedding photos, and so we were so excited to be back there to capture their wedding!
Have you heard of Dundas Valley Conservation Area? Nor had we until Cierra and Matt suggested it to us for their engagement shoot photos! It always surprises us how many amazing and cool spots there in Ontario, not too far from Toronto, that are just perfect for an engagement shoot.
From the very first meeting with Jimmy and Anna, when they met with us for their wedding photography consultation, their fun loving personalities were immediately evident. While their wedding was still a whole year away, we knew right away that it was going to be a crazy fun time and we’ll have a ton of amazing moments to capture! And of course, just as expected, it was!
Once upon a time, at an elementary school far far away, a new boy named William arrived. He didn't know anyone at the school, and waited patiently in the office until a friend would come and find him. As luck would have it, at the same time, a beautiful and kind-hearted girl named Amanda was chosen by the teacher to venture to the school office and welcome William to the school. And they lived happily ever after....
The morning of Jeanine and Reza’s wedding, the sun was shining and warm in Hamilton, absolutely perfect spring wedding weather! Both Reza and Jeanine were bubbly with excitement as they were getting ready, eager to see each other and say their I Do’s. Their friends were also buzzing with excitement as they got ready and helped one another polish off their looks.
We met Alex and Andrew at the National Bridal Show, and between her awesome neon pink hair and bubbly personality, Alex immediately stood out to us, so we were super excited when Alex and Andrew asked to meet with us to chat about their wedding…
When Donna and Daneil mentioned that they were considering doing their engagement shoot in Hamilton, at the Dundas community fire station where Daneil is a fireman, we jumped at the opportunity. How often do you get the chance to do a photoshoot at a fire station? Not often, that’s for sure!
Sarah and Glen’s wedding was everything you could imagine a winter wedding would be, complete with a fresh coating of snow surrounding St. George’s Golf and Country Club and beautiful Christmas lights and Christmas trees throughout the historic venue
Leading up to the shoot, we weren’t even sure if we would end up having enough snow in the Toronto area and figured we may have to drive up north again in search of snow as we did last year. Luckily, the GTA got a ton of snow in the couple of days leading up to the engagement session and we were able to drive up to Kortright Centre for Conservation in Vaughn
Do try to choose a location that is meaningful and special to you both as a couple. It could be where you first met, where you had your first date, or where you got engaged. Do consider local spots you love to visit together, such as coffee shops, markets, or your favourite park to stroll in. Do remember you can keep it simple and have your shoot done at home for cozy and relaxed photos.
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.
Living in Toronto, we are very lucky to have Niagara-on-the-Lake so close by. Everywhere you turn, there is a winery, and shooting in a winery is always such a treat. The smells, the views, the atmosphere, it's all so romantic and it sets the perfect mood for an engagement photoshoot.
Emille and Kleber's engagement shoot at Humber Bay Park was inspired by the engagement shoot we did at Humber Bay for Patricia and Gavin. Emille and Kleber loved the park's wild nature, the great cityscape view you get from across the lake, and the gorgeous sunset view it offered.
Sarah had been up since 5am to make sure she was ready bright and early for the moment Matt first sees her in her gorgeous wedding dress at Humber Arboretum, the site of their ceremony and their first look photos.
