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!
Been very excited about sharing these images from Winnie and Jason’s wedding for a while now. These two lovebirds both went to Queen’s University, and eventually met at Telus in Toronto (hence why we did their engagement session there). Now, four years and one Bermuda proposal later, they’ve finally tied the knot!
Full-of-life, fun-and-quirky, food-loving Winnie and Jason’s beautiful wedding day took place at the Old Mill in Ancaster, with a stint at Tiffany Falls for some couple photos. Together with Marek, I had a wonderful time photographing their special day, one that was filled with beautiful sunlight, candid moments, and a whole lot of yellow – seriously, check out those groomsmen socks and yellow ‘bridal’ boots!
Hope you enjoy the images as much as we enjoyed shooting them!
A few weeks ago I had an awesome engagement shoot with Felix and Christine. Felix’s two loves were at this shoot; Christine and Genny. Both fought for the spotlight, so we solved that by doing the first part of the shoot in a more casual downtown atmosphere. Then Christine and Felix changed into their evening wear and it was time for Genny to get ready for the action as well. One of the locations that I really wanted to shoot was under the Gardiner Expressway. It turned out that it was a bit muddy under there and the ground was very uneven. Unbeknownst to me, it was Genny’s first time “off roading” and she did get stuck in the mud, causing a bit of a panic. Luckily, we got Genny free and positioned her in the perfect spot. We had to take out some rags and give her a bit of a cleaning, and finally we were all ready to do the shoot.
We featured Ewa and Alex’s engagement photos on the blog on June 5th, but as you can imagine, video sometimes takes a little bit more time, so it wasn’t quite ready right there and then. But a month after, it’s ready and approved by Ewa (and Alex, I imagine… hehe!) and I can share it with you! This is a no-dialogue/interview edit. To me, the neatest thing about it is Ewa’s slightly off-key choice of music (‘The Only One’ by The Black Keys)… at first I thought it may be too dramatic, but after cutting images to it, and giving the piece a slightly vintage-y look, I actually really like the effect!
Well, I won’t keep you any longer… just wanted to share. Maybe it’ll give some of you ideas (i.e. if you really like your dogs, why not bring them along?). If you like it, leave a comment or share it. Or ask questions if you want? In any case, that’s it for now. Take care! – Christian
