TORONTO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER: MY FAVOURITE 2016 ENGAGEMENT MOMENTS

candid toronto wedding photographerEngagement 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…)

AFFORDABLE TORONTO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER: A FALL ENGAGEMENT

affordable toronto wedding photographerFall 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…)

TORONTO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER: THE DOCTOR’S HOUSE KLEINBURG CELEBRATION

toronto wedding photographerMy 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…)

TORONTO ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY: LOVEBIRDS + BOOKWORMS

toronto-engagement-photography-llb-creative-1

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…)

Every single moment of this day was bursting with love — love between friends, between family and of course between this lovely bride and groom.

We celebrated through extreme heat, surprise showers and a picturesque sunset without ever skipping a beat in the happy mood! Heartfelt speeches, humour at every turn and a love story that really is the stuff movies are made of — how I wish jumping into these photos would take me back to the whole day!

TORONTO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER: LIBERTY VILLAGE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY BALLET BRIDE & GROOM

toronto wedding photographertoronto wedding photographertoronto wedding photographertoronto wedding photographertoronto wedding photographertoronto wedding photographertoronto wedding photographerYou know what I love most about photographing weddings? That no two celebrations or couples are the same and that each bride and groom have the freedom to infuse their day with their own sense of style. After a bit of creative collaboration these newlyweds decided to incorporate their love of dance into their portrait session and the results are truly beautiful! Had I been able to, I would have photographed this pair dancing around Liberty Village all afternoon, but we had a reception to get to (which was also delightful, more on that later!) Wishing this pair a lifetime of happiness, joy and dance!

affordable toronto wedding photographerImagine you are invited to a bubbly brunch to celebrate your dear friend’s milestone 30th birthday, but when you walk out onto the patio you discover that your friend is actually — GETTING MARRIED right then and there! That is the scene that I was invited to capture this past weekend at the gorgeous Brookstreet Hotel in Ottawa.

With the help of Courtney Elizabeth Events this lovely couple surprised their dearest friends and family with an impromptu wedding ceremony followed by an incredible (and delicious!) brunch, complete with coffee, yogurt and mimosa bar.

Everything about this day was absolutely perfect. There was surprise, tears, touching spontaneous toasts, lots of laughter, darling coffee themed motifs sprinkled throughout the decor and so much more! This post is just a little sneak peek. Lots more to come very very soon! Congratulations to the happy couple!
