TRACY + JASON

One of the most rewarding parts of being a wedding photographer is getting to know families on one of their most memorable and important days. It's a learning experience the whole day through. From start to end if you pay attention to the tones of voice, the body language, the conversations - you can get to know so much about the dynamics of family and of the love and respect therein. I think it makes us as photographers grow and create in a whole new kind of way. A more thoughtful, loving and giving way. Documenting each day with individuality and care for the families and the relationships who will be glad for real images from a day that will forever be engrained in their hearts.

ALBINA + MARK - PART ONE

We have been just itching to share this wedding! We are finally able and I don't even know where to start. Mark and Albina (as well as their love) have captured me by the heart for sure! They both have creative souls and so much respect for the arts and for each other. I always felt like we could create something beautiful together with so much ease. They are kind, open, willing and excited about everything. The world is their oyster and I have really enjoyed being in their presence and learning from the way they live life. My heart is so full and thankful for having been a part of their lives and of their day.

We are excited to have had Mark and Albina's Graydon Hall Manor wedding featured in the 10th issue of Lavish Dulhan magazine! There are so many images and so much to share that we have broken this up into 2 posts. Today we'll share their ceremony and later on we will share their reception. As always it was an absolute pleasure working with Malvina of Fabulous Occasions - she is just incredible!

LAIYEE + JUSTIN

We are so excited thinking about all of the lovely weddings coming up this year that we are heading back to feature some weddings from this past season! When I finally met (we did most of the wedding photography planning over the phone) Laiyee and Justin and their adorable little son at their engagement shoot, I fell in love with this little family. Little T is the sweetest little man who at under a year old, did amazing in the photos. When he was almost a year old for their wedding, he was the cutest little ring bearer you ever did see! Thank you for including us in these amazingly special times J+L and I can't wait to see how your little family grows!

COLIN + VANESSA

What can I say about the lovely Vanessa and her charismatic groom Colin?! I've known Colin or many years - our parents were great friends and always thought him to be a quiet gentlemen - always respectful, kind and caring. Of course, he deserved a beautiful partner with many of the same qualities and he found her in spades! These two are the perfect match in so many ways. They adore one another and their respect and adoration for one another is as obvious as the sun is hot. It was such a pleasure and blessing for me to be a part of their day and to see them make their commitment official. To top it off, it was absolutely stunning - a dream wedding! Bring on many more like this for 2017 and I will be singing gleefully the whole day through!

INGRID + GREG'S WEDDING DESIGN by FABULOUS OCCASIONS

Today we wanted to try something a little different! We have been so fortunate to work with some of Toronto's top wedding vendors over the last few years and Malvina Chevolleau of Fabulous Occasions is no exception. We absolutely adore working with her! She can make any idea/vision/dream come true, creating a wedding day that's truly unique and magical. Her attention to detail and experience in the industry is invaluable when planning a wedding day. We look forward to working with Malvina again and again in the future!

Ingrid and Greg were planning an intimate wedding for close family and friends, after many years together. They wanted something truly elegant, classic and beautiful with lots of flowers and romance. Malvina delivered this in spades!
