I’m truly blessed to do what I do. I know that it may sound like a “cliché”, but the honest truth is that there is something special about capturing the love that exists between couples. The days and months leading up to the wedding, the anticipation of the “big day”, all bring out these magical emotions that I know won’t always be there, however they will be forever captured to remind us of how we felt.
Melanie and Thomas are a young and madly in love couple that just couldn’t keep their eyes off one another. This was an extra special engagement photography session for me because Thomas is my brother-in-law’s brother. It was amazing spending more time with him and Melanie. What was also AMAZING was the location we chose to use for the engagement photography session. Thomas’ parents own a farm, and Thomas spent countless hours running around and jumping on the hay stacks with his brothers and sisters. Now the farm isn’t used for what it was before, but nevertheless the barn is still standing and, boy, was it ever a photographer’s dream. I hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed creating them.
Melanie and Thomas, I’m super pumped to be able to capture your rustic themed wedding in May!
One of the amazing things about our work is that we get to photograph all types of weddings, go to all kinds of locations, and experience all sorts of rituals first-hand. In this case, we had the opportunity to shoot Christine and Felix’s contemporary wedding, which happened at Columbus Event Centre in Toronto, with a stop at Downsview Park before going to the reception at La Primavera. These are straightforward facts, and they’re all true, but what’s more important is the things that are more difficult to accurately describe: the sense of anticipation as Christine sat on the bed looking at her dress before getting ready, the playfulness of Felix and his groomsmen, the emotion when they finally saw each other – the big reveal! – and then that moment when they both officially became husband and wife. How do you tell the story of why someone falls in love, of what compels them to tell the whole world about it? I’ve attempted to do it in images here, and hope that this selection of photographs can convey, in some tenuous way, the sheer beauty of this awesome couple’s big day.
Christine and Felix, many, many congrats, I hope you have as much fun for the rest of your marriage as you did on your wedding day!
Oh, and by the way, you learn more about their story, and to see Christine and Felix’s engagement photos here.
Always exciting to be featured by our friends at the Wedding Co. blog. This time, we’ve had the chance to showcase Ewa and Alex’s rustic, DIY wedding at the Old Springer House. Wow, so many beautiful things: we loved all the different off-white dresses worn by the bridesmaids, the awesome tree-trunk centrepieces made by Ewa’s father, the edamame bean field (I think?) at the Old Springer House (one of our new favourite venus) and the gorgeous weather! It’s such a pleasure to share their special day’s photographs and video with you. Just click the image below to see the full editorial. Enjoy.
As you may know, we were at the National Bridal Show at the Direct Energy Centre this past weekend. Here’s a few people we liked and booths and details we loved. Special mention to our almost-neighbours Helen and Lloyd at Stylish Weddings (Paper Impressions), who do super fabulous work and turned out to be the nicest people ever (despite their kid keeping them awake at night). See you next year everyone!
As I was writing this post, I came across this quote on Pinterest: “The couples that are ‘meant to be’ are the ones who go through everything that is meant to tear them apart and come out even stronger than they were before.” For Lindsey and Jorge, for a part of their relationship, that hurdle, that obstacle, was distance. They met at work, fell in love, and then things got tricky, with Jorge having to return for Mexico and Lindsey staying here. But their love was strong, and, with the support of their family, they eventually managed to get everything sorted out and tie the knot. And I was lucky enough to cover their beautiful and sunny wedding day with Bowen. Lindsey and Jorge are people you can’t not like: joyful and caring, they welcomed us as if we were family, right from the beginning. And so when I sent Lindsey the video and she admitted it made her tear up, we felt good, like we’d actually successfully captured, in some little, simple way, a bit of what their love is about. I really hope you guys have a beautiful life as husband and wife… and we look forward to sending you anniversary gifts now and then!
