After Raeven gave her flower girl, Isla, a #ballerina music box as a gift, she danced and danced and danced, as Raeven got her wedding dress on. It felt like a scene out of the most adorable movie. #raevensgettingrahamered
While on my way to the getting ready location on a wedding day, I always mentally prepare myself for the chaos that I'm about to walk into. But sometimes, like on Raeven & Marcus' wedding day, there's an overwhelming sense of calm and quiet that makes for such a peaceful beginning to the day. #raevensgettingrahamered
I'm posting another photo from Amy & Josh's engagement shoot because, well, they're adorable.
These lovely folks are getting their engagement photo gallery today. I love the anticipation of sending out a gallery that I'm really proud of and awaiting the reaction of my clients.
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
For their engagement shoot, Amy & Josh took me to a beautiful forest on the most perfect fall day. At times, while we were chatting, I could barely hear Amy and Josh over the crunch of the leaves below us. It was only made better by adorable moments like this one.
Sophia & Derek had their romantic first dance as husband and wife under twinkle lights and the beautiful real trees they set up in their recepton tent.
New photography locations keep me inspired, so I was super excited to explore two new spots on Sunday, including this magical place for Kelsey & Scott's engagement photos. #kortrightcentre #kortrightcentreforconservation
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
Recently, I've had so many opportunities to use classic cars for wedding photos and I'm not mad about it. I loved capturing portraits of Jaime & Steve sitting in the back of this #Plymouth #convertible at the park. #livinginsinnomore #stratfordwedding
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
Groomsmen don't get enough credit, so cheers to all the men who keep grooms laughing and calm throughout a day that can be a rollercoaster of emotions. Michael's guys were a ton of fun on his and Alyssa's wedding day.
Raeven & Marcus have been receiving a huge amount of love and support through the photos I've been posting, which really is a reflection of the positive impact they've had on their community. #raevensgettingrahamered
I may or may not be obsessed with the photos I captured with Beverly & Vish during their impromtu sunset session during their wedding reception. There were only a few minutes of this light when the sun peeked out under the clouds, before setting behind the escarpment. #bishplz2017
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
Jenn & Jeromy's backyard wedding this weekend was everything they had hoped, with the exception of a bit of afternoon rain that we could have done without. With their laid-back attitudes, the newlyweds didn't let a little rain ruin their day. #jennmarriesjer
Sophia & Derek's wedding day was beautiful in every way and nonstop fun from beginning to end. A big congratulations to the #newlyweds! #tohaffandtohold
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.
On Sunday, I met up with Steve & Zach at the recently re-opened Toronto Islands. Ward's Island was among their top choices as a wedding location, so even though they chose a different venue, I'm glad we were still able to shoot their engagement photos there.
In lieu of seeing each other for the first time at the alter, Danica & Tom opted to go the First Look route, which I feel allows couples to really take in this big moment of a wedding day and take a lot of pressure off the ceremony. #tomica17 #firstlook
