Engagement sessions that incorporate things the couple are naturally enthusiastic about are always the most memorable. For this Toronto engagement session we wandered the iconic St. Lawrence Market, thus capturing the couple’s affinity for local food, coffee and urban style! Simple, style and sweet — everything a modern and meaningful engagement session should be. (more…)
Spring weddings are light and dreamy, breathy and beautiful — but also constantly teased by the lingering possibility of rain. This gorgeous couple’s celebration on Saturday was such an affair, but love conquered all — even the weather! Rather than let a few raindrops get them down, this lively bride and groom busted out some umbrellas and a wonderful sense of humour to make the most of their day. Laughter, laughter and more laughter trickled throughout the entire celebration. Here’s a sneak peek! (more…)
When the Toronto cherry blossoms come out to play, I can’t help but want to photograph everyone under them! They are absolutely incredible. It’s like stepping into a storybook for a little bit and the delicate blooms are ethereal, creating a sweet ambiance that you can’t help but smile at. It was a delight to photograph these lovebirds beneath the soft blush petals. (more…)
St. Lawrence Market is one of the prettiest urban locations for wedding portraits in Toronto and on Saturday I had the tremendous delight of capturing this couple’s Irish spring celebration. The morning presented lots of rain, so much so that we were seriously considering moving our portrait session to a different area. But luckily, just as the couple said “I do” to one another, the clouds parted and brilliant sunshine came out instead. (more…)
There are some photography projects that are just a dream come true and being asked to create White Studio Bridal‘s wedding dress lookbook was once such dream!

Be sure to visit the link above for the complete collection! (more…)
It’s always lovely when Toronto love stories incorporate iconic Toronto scenery on the wedding day.

It was a chilly day. But it was a magical day through and through as well! Lots more from this celebration to come! (more…)

It was a year choc-full of love, celebration and joy on the wedding front. Every single celebration that I had the privilege of photographing moved me and made my heart flutter. I only wish I could share all of my favourite Toronto wedding photography moments with you, but alas this small sampling will have to do for now. (more…)
Engagement sessions are wonderful. Purely and simply wonderful, because they are an opportunity to capture a couple in love being themselves. This year I had the incredible experience of working with numerous lovebirds and creating just as many unique Toronto engagement sessions to suit a wide range of styles. We explored forests, we lingered in coffee shops, we danced as if no one was watching, we staked out a replica Ghostbusters car, we hid away in bookstores, we took long meandering walks by the lake — I even hid in the bushes (literally) to capture a surprise proposal! Above are just a few of my favourite engagement moments from 2016. How I wish I could share them all, but I’m afraid that if I did my heart would explore. (more…)
Fall is a wonderful time to document falling in love and this sweet, colourful engagement session left me grinning from ear to ear all afternoon. We met up in Trinity Bellwoods Park, the site of this couple’s proposal, and strolled, and laughed and took photos among the glorious leaves. It was the perfect afternoon — I cannot wait for their wedding next year! (more…)
My last 2016 wedding took place on Saturday at a picturesque little venue called The Doctor’s House in Kleinburg. This dreamy late afternoon celebration was elegant and down-to-earth (a most gorgeous combination, I must say!) And this lovely couple were absolute rockstars, braving the chilly November weather in the great outdoors for their bride and groom portraits. A celebration surrounded by love, punctuated with laughter and sprinkled with flowers and dancing is definitely one that should be cherished for a lifetime. (more…)
I am passionate about photography because of its power to tell a story and capture a mood. Perhaps it is my professional background in journalism, but the ability to document people’s unique stories is something that I have always believed to be an enormous privilege and honour.
So when these two lovebirds mentioned that they would like part of their Toronto engagement photoshoot to take place in a second-hand bookstore, surrounded by literature’s most beloved stories and romances, the hairs on the back of my neck bristled with excitement! Sweet, simple and stylish — this engagement session embodied absolutely everything that I love about my job! (more…)
What is the definition of a great engagement session? In my opinion, great engagement sessions are those that reflect the couple’s personality. We spent a great morning in this sun-speckled forest, surrounded by crimson and golden leaves, and set to work creating a sweet, simple and timeless engagement shoot that is focused entirely upon what matters — this beautiful couple and their story! (more…)
My favourite part of shooting any wedding is the couple portraits part of the day. The ceremony is over, the stress is off and the couple melts into one another during their first few moments as newlyweds. It is always a sweet, serene and romantic moment and I always feel very lucky to be asked to capture these happy moments.
