Weddings & Couples

Michele & Dan - Engagement

It was a pleasure to shoot with Michele and Dan recently, another great, down to earth couple. Despite rain, we soldiered on and had a nice walk down Dundas St, and through Trinity Bellwoods park. While I do always enjoy shooting rainy day photos, it was a treat to be able to shoot inside Dan’s barber shop, Nite Owl. I don’t always get time to set up a few lights and shoot in such an interesting location, so I was greatful for the opportunity! Here are a few of my favorites from our little walk together…


Melissa & Pat

The final wedding of 2018. It was nice to spend it with Melissa and Patrick on this beautiful Saturday. We had great weather, and great locations to shoot at. But, at the request of the couple who would like to keep their wedding private, I will keep this short and only share a select few of my favorite shots from the day which they have consented to me posting (thanks guys!).


Nicole & Bruce

It was great to get back together with Nicole and Bruce after shooting their engagement shots a few months ago.  Even on the big day, they were both still very relaxed, smiling, and enjoying the whole thing, despite the small bumps in the road that creep up on every wedding day.


 
Going through the album Aaron made for us, was like reliving our wedding day. Every emotion, every moment and all the excitement, is perfectly captured. So much so that I was crying the whole way through! Aaron somehow manages to always be in the right spot at the right moment and will go above and beyond to get the shot he wants. He has an amazing talent and we could not be happier with our wedding photos!

Overall, we lucked out with great weather for late July; sunny and warm enough, but still plenty of clouds so no one was squinting with sun in their face (such things are important when you're a photographer!).  It was also great for me to be able to shoot in 2 new Toronto locations: the historic Metropolitan United Church, and the grounds surrounding Osgoode Hall.  As always, these days fly by, and before you know it, the dancing is winding down and the night comes to an end.  Here are a few of my favorite shots from the day...


Kathryn & Chris

I'm glad Kathryn and Chris were my first wedding of 2018, and my first wedding after my break last year.  Another great couple who, more than anything, just wanted to have fun on their wedding day, and not get hung up on all the perfect details.  Inevitably during the day, couples get flustered because something has gone slightly off plan or off schedule, and I end up reminding people that weddings never go according to plan, and to just enjoy things as they come.  But, I don't think that ever came up with Kathryn or Chris!  Of course we had a few delays, our photo location was closed, but everyone kept on smiling and, in the end, it all worked out just fine!


 
Aaron is a patient and very easy to work with guy. We knew going in that his work was amazing, but working with him on our wedding day was a dream. Even with a few bumps in the day and some disorganization, he managed to save us and help deliver some fantastic photos. Definitely glad we found him to document our special day! Thanks Aaron!

While this was only a half day of shooting for me, it was nice to get back to Dundas, where I grew up, and photograph for them in places I'd run around as a kid.  Since our primary photo location was unavailable, I was able to suggest an alternate, and get us there quickly.  Local knowledge!  Overall, it was a fast and fun day, and a great way to start the year.   Here are a few of my favorite shots from the day...
