Rosa & James
I had such a great time with Rosa & James at their engagement shoot. I had met them while I was shooting one of their really close friends wedding. So it felt like we had already known each other forever. We decided to do their engagement shoot in the St. Lawrence Market neighborhood because of the amazing variation of locations it has to offer. We started with Novotel and finished out side of the Gooderham building where they fearlessly danced in the middle of traffic. How sweet is Rosa's custom made denim jacket though!?
Melissa & Alex
Melissa & Alex’s wedding was held at the Steamwhistle Brewery. They had a live band that played many fan faves, and beautiful acoustic covers. Live music is always a win. Their clean, and elegant rustic decor was incredible. The tall florals were notable, and they had great personalized touches (like the table signs,) that really pulled it all together.
One of my favourite things about Melissa & Alex is their LOVE of red wine. Every meeting was coupled with a glass, or two, or a bottle to share. It was a pleasure meeting their friends, and family on their day and it was quickly evident that they enjoy being surrounded by the people in their life that mean the most. They not only had a large wedding party, but the reception that felt like a bunch of friends coming together to celebrate. It was an epic party.
Emily & Marcus
We shot Emily & Marcus's engagement shoot down at Scarborough Bluffs. I met both of them when they were in the bridal party of Emily's sister's wedding that I shot back in 2017. Marcus was a little scared of the camera at first but that didn't stop them from looking like Laguna Beach models within moments. They were absolute troopers with their shoes off running around in the freezing water. To finish off the shoot, Emily's dad even gave us a sweet old vintage bike that he had in his garage. We found an awesome little pathway covered in tree's and had a ton of fun. Can't wait to shoot their big day and see the whole fam again!
Drew & Jessica
Drew & I have been friends since we we're in college. We both cruised around the same friend circles for some time and the more and more we hung out we realized we we're a great match. Hes extremely driven in his career, and his success really shows that. This is one of the best traits you can have in one of your best friend, as it always strives you to become a better version of yourself. Drew, being a rel-estate agent, got my lovely fiance and myself a condo in the neighboring building to him. This is where our relationship with him and his amazing wife Jess really took flight. Multiple double date nights, after work bbq's and drinks, were always something I looked forward to on a regular basis. When Drew and Jess asked me to shoot their wedding in Mexico, I was absolutely honored. They had an extremely beautiful wedding on top of one of the nicest resorts rooftops in all of mexico. Trust me, there was no shortage of photo shoot locations. The whole trip and the wedding day went perfectly. So many awesome people made the trip to celebrate with them. One of the largest destination wedding groups I have ever been apart of. The nights went just as perfect, but we won't get into all of that. What happens in Mexico, stays in Mexico. Right? Plus when it comes down to it, I think they are a huge reason that inspired Nikki & myself to do a destination wedding ourselves!
Kayla & Felipe
I shot Kayla's sisters wedding in 2019. As soon as I entered the house, I was instantly welcomed into the family. Kayla and Felipe reached out to me shortly after the wedding to quickly get the ball rolling on booking me on their big day as well. I couldn't be happier. We took their engagement photos at Osgoode Hall and had an unreal time. Besides the pidgin poo that somehow got on Kayla's bum, everything was perfect. These two we're so candid and easy to shoot the entire time. I believe their love really shows in these fun candid moments. You really get a good feel on how awesome these two are for each other. Just being around them is a true gift for any human being. Needless to say, I can't wait for their wedding day.
Ranya & Zaid
Ranya & Zaid are a beautiful couple, two of the kindest people on the planet! Their wedding was a 2 day affair that was extremely elegant. The decor was on trend with those clean, bright whites, and a gorgeous floral wall. No detail was spared. Ranya definitely stole the show with her long veil, and Louboutins that added that touch of tradition, and glamour to her dress. Although the wedding was large, I really appreciated the intimate wedding party. This gave me a little more space to focus on capturing the love between Ranya & Zaid. Enjoy!
