Carla & Fern Get Married – Wedding Photos at Willow Springs Winery

A long-time friend of mine, Christy, introduced me to Carla and Fern what was years ago now; right away, I knew this was a couple we would work seamlessly with. Far too often, brides can get lost in the pre-occupation of wedding planning; so much so, wedding enjoyment becomes a secondary thing. Not the case here – though still meticulously planned, both Carla and Fern seemed to truly make the most of their wedding day, warmly spending their time celebrating amoungst friends and family. An excellent day indeed.

Please see an assortment of some of our favourites below – thanks again to long time friend Nathan Dionisio who once again was the other photographer helping bring this event to life in pictures.

Carla tries to smoosh me after getting her dress down.

There is an off-color conversation that goes with the cramming of bills in the shirt.

Glam.

Someone will explain it all to her, I’m sure.

Nate D bringing an awesome minimalist shot to the groomsmen details.

True ring security.

This chokes me up.

This too.

A little shimmery here.

Success!

Radiance.

Our stellar bridal group.

Willow Springs Winery with some excellent locations to shoot.

Cheers to that.

Fin.

Nice pictures! Love the one of the flower girl getting help putting on her shoes, you through the church doors coming into the aisle, and the one of you throwing the bouquet best. :)

YEOWWWWWW amazing! OF COURSE – and this is why we loved you!!!!!

Pre-wedding photographs in Toronto – Jessica & Jackson.

So, my apologies, all, for keeping the blog so scantily updated – with shooting at least once if not twice every weekend, our focus has been forced back to editing first, blogging second (though we keep a very active Facebook Photography page ) . Hopefully the upcoming sets we have for you will allow you to forgive us!

Our style has always had a bit of a flair for the dramatic; often clients come to us for our pre-wedding photography look combined with a Western fashion photography edge. When Jessica and Jackson and I met for the first time, they were looking for just that – a combination of Chinese pre-wedding photographs merged with Western edge and style. Our results were nothing short of our combined expectations.


Playful, coy, seductive.Hard not to love the light play at work here.If there were a Red Swan dress, Jessicas’ would be it.N. Zarafoni was kind enough to let us shoot in front of her hotdog stand. The smell was amazing hahaDark. Drama.There is an energy to this frame, in my eyes, that I just love. A romantic tension that you just feel.Jackson putting his guns to use.Just checkin’ stocks (right after Facebook).We do mix in a bit of ‘traditional’ imagery as well for our pre-wedding photos in Toronto.I adore this.Lovely. Some softer shots as well keep parents happy.;)What a difference lighting makes. Shown above and below, two very similar shots – one with natural light, one with an edgy, focused and artificial light.Awwwwwww.:)Near the end of the session, I think we started to get a little crazy. If you’ve ever wanted to see yourself as a cartoon character, we can make that happen for you – but it photographs!I don’t even know what they’re doing, but it’s perfect.Tres elegante. That may not be french.Tudoresque.Fin

An awesome end to a great shoot. Also, huge thanks to Nate D (not pictured, because he’s a ninja like that) for his help.

A little behind the scenes action of Nathan helping to light our couple.

AMAZING LOVE THEM ALL!

Stephanie & Santo – Wedding

When you have a very attractive couple to work with, as a photographer it’s almost a cop-out to go for the ‘easy’ glamour shots of the day; however, I was so proud with how this set turned out not only for the ‘beauty’ shots, but also the storytelling imagery, too. I would say the unexpected access to the Trump Tower was a special highlight for us ;).

Steph and Santo.

Something about this shot..I just see it hanging in a hallway 20 years from now.

I had to include this. The baby seems to be looking at us, knowing that a cheek pinch and big kiss is unavoidable.

Family.

The tears just welled right up. I love this pair of shots.

Catch your breath.

First look.

Our crew.

Stunning girls.

I wonder how the videographers’ footage came out from this? haha

Andy King knocks this one out of the park.

My slightly more dramatic take.

This makes me smile.

So. Intense.

Mood is everything/

Looming city.

This reminds me of a shot my good friend and amazing photographer Evan Baines took.

Fin.

Hello!

You shot my friend Caroline’s wedding in February of 2013 and I was in her wedding party. It is now my turn to get married and would love to consult with you about what you offer! My fiance and I will be getting married in Kettleby at The Manor (By Peter & Paul’s) on Saturday, July 25th, 2015. If you are not booked for that day already, could you please send over a price list?

Thank you!
