Laurena and James were married Aug 10, 2014 at Casa Loma in Toronto. They traveled all the way from New York, to be married here amongst family and friends. We started the day capturing them getting ready at The Marriott Bloor, Yorkville and then headed down to the beautiful Castle for the ceremony, pictures and reception. Laurena and James are incredible people: so kind, full of life and totally in love! We were so excited to spend the day capturing them, their family and friends. It was so hard to narrow down these photos – there were just so many that we fell in love with… how couldn’t we with a backdrop like Casa Loma and these two beautiful people. So much time and effort was spent on every detail, from the outfits, to the decor, food and even the beautiful antique tea cups that were hand filled to make beautiful take home candles… A stunning wedding, true to their Downton Abbey theme.

Sarah and Ryan are awesome! So fun to work with, easy going, fun folks. So when we asked if they were up for doing some night shots, they were game… and SOOOO HAPPY they were willing to leave the party for a few minutes so that we could capture this night shot! Downtown toronto, with only cabs on the road … absolutely incredible. This image would be nothing without you two!
Stay tuned for more shots in their sneak peek (posted soon).
Being professional photographers, we can’t stress enough the importance of variety in wedding photography. In our opinion, a wedding shot in only one style doesn’t translate into a true representation of the story of your day. Moods and tonality go hand in hand and having the ability to adjust the style of the photograph to represent the emotion at that time of day is key. Variety is also created in the post production process which today is a huge part of the artistry of photography. We always believe in shooting correctly in camera but adjusting colour, changing images to black and white, creating “dirty” or old fashioned imagery is all part of the post production process that helps to tell a story. Check out the example below from Sarah & Ryan’s wedding on Aug 8th, 2014. We shot both image at St. James park. The image on the left is vibrant and lively while the image on the right is grainy reminiscent of black and white film… two compositions almost identical but totally different in feel and mood.
We just finished putting the finishing touches on Sandra and Mike’s wedding images and couldn’t help but post their beautiful highlight film. Set on the beautiful Vineland Estates Vineyard, these two traveled all the way from Australia to share their vows with family and friends.
We were so excited to shoot Laurena and James – especially considering their Downton Abbey Theme at Casa Loma! …totally awesome right! Check out one fabulous image of Laurena during the getting ready stage of the morning… absolutely stunning! Stay tuned – lots more to come.
Yalda & Oscar were married at the Rosewater Supper Club on Aug 3, 2014. We had the most incredible time with these two. So in- love and completely happy; no stress and completely ready to have fun and pose it up for the camera – they were an absolute pleasure to shoot, not to mention hang out with! We started with the guys at Oscar and Yalda’s condo downtown. Then headed out to the King Edward hotel to capture the girls getting ready. The reveal and photos were all done near and around the Rosewater Supper Club where both the Persian Ceremony and Reception were held. It was an incredible wedding with the most fabulous people. Check out the sneak peek below.
Lauren & Brandon scored an awesome day. Weather was amazing and the photo shoot at Adamson Estates was super fun. We had the whole team out, and so did they; the bridal party were a blast, just like Lauren & Brandon. Check out the album we put together for them to get a real feel of what the whole day was like (below) and be sure to visit their proofing gallery to see the rest of the awesome images!
Susan and Paolo were married at Credit Valley Golf Club; a long-standing family tradition.

A complete album is coming…stay tuned.
