On Sunday, Heather & Dave had a bit of time for themselves, away from their kids, to shoot their engagement photos. I had so much fun watching these two laughing with each other through the whole shoot. I can't wait to capture their wedding day in October.
This weekend I felt like a bear emerging from his den, so eager to get outside, into the sunlight and take some portraits. My weekend started with engagement photos with Katherine & Sean.
Tizanella & Anthony are getting their engagement gallery today. I hope they love their photos as much as I do.
On a chilly day, like Steve & Zach's wedding day, there's nothing like the love (and body heat) of friends and family to keep you warm. I hope you're keeping warm today! #zampakwedding #blackcreekwedding
Jaime & Steven's wedding reception was just as beautiful as their ceremony, complete with incredible details and personal touches. Shout out to Revival House (@revivalhouse_on) for the incredible space and delicious meal.
Steve & Zach were surrounded by an amazing group of loving and supportive groomsmen and groomswomen on their wedding day, who braved the cold weather for photos around the beautiful, historic Black Creek Pioneer Village in Toronto. #zampakwedding #blackcreek #blackcreekwedding #blackcreekpioneervillage
On her wedding day, Sophia was surrounded by a group of supportive ladies, who kept her comfortable and laughing all day. #tohaffandtohold
Jaime & Steven's first look was less emotional than their meeting at the alter, but no less magical. This little balcony at the Revival House was the perfect place for this intimate moment to take place. #revivalhousewedding #revivalhouse #firstlook
Taryn & David's engagement shoot took place solidly in Mennonite country. While travelling from one location to another, we passed a convoy of horse-drawn buggies and had to watch where we stepped, while walking on the road.
Another couple frames from Kayla & Dan's farm engagement shoot on the weekend. How cute are they?
I had a busy day of photography on Sunday. It all started bright and early with Taryn & David's engagement photos. David is an engineer and loves interesting bridges, so we visited a couple during their shoot.
One of my favourite parts of a weding day is the emotional moments between a bride and her mother while she's getting ready. Some brides question whether or not they need getting ready photos; to me it's less about putting the dress on and more about moments like this one between Danica and her mother. #tomica17
Jenn & Jeromy's intimate backyard wedding was personalized from the location and decorations, to the dancing procession and the funny, yet heartfelt vows they wrote for each other. #jennmarriesjer
My favourite thing about Steve & Zach's engagement shoot was watching them being total goofballs with each other and make each other laugh through the whole thing. I'm excited to capture this magic again on their wedding day in November.
I had a really great time hanging out with Danielle & Jarrett on the calm, quiet evening of their engagement shoot. Just a short time chatting and observing couples during an engagement shoot adds a super important level of comfort and trust that brings out the best moments on the wedding day. I'm looking forward to Danielle & Jarrett's big day next June.
At my initial consultation with Danielle & Jarrett, Danielle mentioned that she imagined her engagement photos in a meadow. So I brought them to this park near Waterloo. They even brought their dog Behr along, who is barely visible in the tall grass. Thankfully, we caught the last bit of late day sun before the clouds rolled in.
Congratulations to Alyssa & Michael, who travelled from their home in New York City to Toronto for their beautiful #torontowedding yesterday. I had such a great time with the newlyweds, their families and friends.
This is one of my favourite moments of a wedding day to capture. After months (or years) of planning, the newlyweds have finally married their best friend. They're looking towards celebrating that night and towards their future together. How could you not smile about that? Congrats Tara & Jeff! #BartlettFarmWedding
Yesterday, Beverly & Vish joined together in marriage. I snuck them out of their reception for a few minutes to capture this magic. #bishplz2017 Congrats to the newlyweds!
Tara & Jeff's wedding ceremony on Saturday took place on the front step's of Tara's family farm. The family put a ton of work in getting the property to look perfect for the wedding and it paid off. #bartlettfarmwedding
On Saturday, I took the beautiful drive out to #Roseneath, ON for Tara & Jeff's incredible farm wedding. Congratulations to the newlyweds! #bartlettfarmwedding
When the bride works on a dairy farm, you take wedding photos in a cow field. (And you watch where you step.) I had such a great time photographing Becky & Wyatt's wedding last weekend.
On Saturday, Becky & Wyatt tied the knot at Becky's family farm in #Plattsville, ON. I had such a great time capturing their laid back country wedding. Congrats to the #newlyweds!
Canoe see how great it was to work with Jamie, Malcolm and their wedding party? It was boatloads of fun. I'll show myself out now. #dadjokes #vincentwedding #cuffedforlife
