Toronto Forest Engagement | Reka + Dan

This picturesque forest engagement was such an adventure.

We set out one evening on a lovely crisp fall day with Reka and Dan to take some pretty photos and make an engagement film. This forest engagement session was an absolute adventure with all the awesome picturesque locations we kept stumbling upon.

I just love their warm personalities so much and it was so much fun getting to know them better. I also loved how Reka looked like Red Riding Hood with her red coat in an enchanted forest. We’re super happy to have spent the afternoon with these guys and we can’t wait for their wedding this spring!

A Downtown Engagement Session | Laura and Don

I just loved this downtown engagement session. We had so much fun shooting by Laura and Don’s old high school.

 

I absolutely love Toronto downtown engagement sessions, there’s always a wonderful and interesting location right around the corner, wherever you go. For this engagement session Laura and Don wanted to shoot at their old high school, Central Technical School, a tall and beautiful building with old architecture–this is where they went to school together while dating. I just adore the idea of having an engagement location somewhere full of shared memories and in a way that’s unique to them. It must have been so nostalgic for them to revisit and sit on the very same steps, giddy with excitement, about to be married.

The warm tones of the sun, a sentimental backdrop, and some after-sunset portraits at a nearby beach. It was wonderful spending the evening with Laura and Don and hearing their story–it’s always so exciting and a very special role photographing couples in love.

Grand Luxe Event Boutique Wedding Photos and Video | Bessy + Mark

 

Bessy and Mark’s wedding photos and video at the Grand Luxe Event Boutique just makes me so happy.

 

When we first met Bessy and mark, they had just arrived from living in Australia.  We chatted over coffee like old friends and listened to their story of how they met, and how they traveled back with Bessy’s wedding dress in a garment bag from boat to boat while traveling back from the Fiji Islands. They’re both such warm and happy people it was wonderful listening to their stories and we felt so lucky to be a part of their day.

Bessy is a very talented wedding planner in Toronto, she planned and styled her entire wedding with all the gorgeous details and the day was coordinated by Fusion Events. Their ceremony was at St. George Greek Orthodox Church and their reception was at the Grand Luxe Event Boutique. For photos, we went right into the heart of Dundas square, walked to Jack Astor’s Bar for some drinks and then strolled along Kensington Market for some pretty portraits and an impromptu dance-off; all these fun locations were just a perfect reflection of Bessy and Mark’s warm and happy personalities.

Oh what a fun wedding this was, and never a dull moment with these two and their wedding party who flew in from Australia to be with them. This is when we realized just how much Australians love to party. There was laughter, and tears, and a hilarious rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Do You Remember The Time” sung by the groomsmen to Bessy and Mark. I also don’t want to leave out Mark’s incredible dancing skills, because he’s got the moves.
