We Said “I Do” to New Flash Drives from USB Memory Direct

There is nothing more wonderful than a product that combines both of our favorite aspects of photography – albums and images. A device that allows you to hold hundreds of digital photos all at the palm of your hand. So what is this full package product you may ask? A USB drive, of course! 

We are so excited to talk about our brand new custom flash drives from USB Memory Direct. For starters, let us just say we are obsessed with how great they look. These walnut colored flash drives add an extra sprinkle of elegance to our wedding packages that we’ve been craving. Especially, with how flawless our laser engraved logo looks on the front. 

Flash drives are very important for our wedding packages. There is nothing we love more than sharing all the memories from your special day with you on one handy USB drive. No matter how big or small a wedding may be, handing out a beautiful wooden flash drive is much more meaningful to us then emailing you a Dropbox link. That’s why we give flash drives to every one of our newlywed couples as a memorable keepsake that they can always cherish. 

 Our USB drives are a product we are proud to have to represent our brand. Thank you USB Memory Direct for these awesome flash drives! Check out their website to learn more about their flash drives.

A Little Rain Never Stops a Wedding

Sheri and Joseph were married on June 24, 2018 at the Beth Emeth Synagogue in Toronto. The day started with quite a bit of rain and wind but ended in beautiful sunshine in the early evening. We love starting our weddings capturing the groom – there such an amazing energy with the guys – excitement, nerves, laughter and just plain goofing around. It was great vibes from the moment we arrived. We then headed out to meet Sheri at the synagogue. It was pure perfection – she was ready for us the moment we arrived. Once we captured all the details, we got Sheri dressed in the main hall where the window light and curtains are gloriously big. The rain just stopped in time for the reveal outside the synagogue. It was a wonderful wedding filled with family and friends ready to celebrate.

Hockey Hall of Fame Bat Mitzvah!

Where do we start! We were sooooooo absolutely excited when we were asked to shoot Marley’s Bat Mitzvah at the Hockey Hall of Fame. But we got even more excited when we were told that they were looking for non-traditional creative locations for family and hockey shots before the big party. Underpass park was naturally our suggestion for something hip, different and uber cool – full of cool graffiti art and interesting playground areas.  Thank you Dana for calling us and making that big decision to choose us to capture this super special moment in Marley’s life!

Julie & Jason and St. Lawrence Market!

Julie and Jason were married at St. Lawrence Market Kitchen…admittedly, a place we never knew existed! and wow, what a great, cozy,  comfy place to have a wedding. If cocktails, food stations and lots of mingling is your vibe, this is the place!

Julie got ready at The King Eddie Hotel and looked STUNNING. We had an awesome time with them and their bridal party, and their parents who kept sliding us these great signature drinks from the bar that were sooo good. Bless these fine, fine people…and the killer taco station! Enjoy this sneak peek to their wedding!JuleJason JuleJason2 JuleJason3 JuleJason4 JuleJason5 JuleJason6 JuleJason7 JuleJason8 JuleJason9 JuleJason10 JuleJason11 JuleJason12 JuleJason13 JuleJason14 JuleJason15 JuleJason16 JuleJason17 JuleJason18 JuleJason19 JuleJason20 JuleJason21 JuleJason22 JuleJason23 JuleJason24 JuleJason25 JuleJason26 JuleJason27 JuleJason28 JuleJason29

Beach Engagement Shoot with Alexie and Tom

Finally, after one cancelled shoot due to a massive ice storm, we finally found a day to get with Alexie and Tom and do an engagement shoot at Cherry Beach. The weather was awesome and if these two aren’t the cutest things ever, then I don’t know what is!

On a technical, photographic note – we don’t force post production styles…we usually enjoy punchy and contrasty images, but once Alexie showed up in this super cute dress, matching 50s shoes and wicked rimmed, white glasses, it sort of dictated the direction of the shoot, with a more old -fashioned, “muddy style” of retro post-production, complete with “washed out” blacks and toned-down whites – never the less, super pumped about the results.

Check out some of faves. Looking forward to this wedding (and the food!)

Stacy & Joe (& Joe’s Corvette)

Stacy & Joe were married October 21, 2017…which, if you were watching Toronto weather, was honestly the first day of Autumn. This actually worked out really well, considering this was the was the first weekend of gorgeous fall colours, matched with an extremely comfortable temperature outside. Consequently, not a bad day to pull out your early 90s Corvette monster! We had an awesome time with these tow and their bridal party at The Doctor’s House in Kleinburg and invite you to a sneak peek of their awesome wedding.
