Nicole & Robert | Engagement Shoot

On Victoria day last month I ventured up to Alliston, ON to photograph an engagement session for Nicole and Robert. They’re tying the knot on June 17th, 2017 in Toronto.
This was a special session as Nicole and I have been best friends since the 8th grade, so we’re closing in on 15 years! From our emo days of listening to My Chemical Romance in the halls of our High School or skipping class to meet AFI, through different colleges and career paths and many adventures, it’s crazy to think in 4 days I’ll be photographing her wedding.

They met about 5 years ago while working as chefs together at the Auld Spot in Toronto (aw, kind of like No Reservations except without the kid & stuff.) After 5 years together he popped the question and she said yes! These two compliment each other so well and I can’t be happier for them.

They weren’t planning on doing an engagement shoot but I’ve known Nicole to be a bit shy in front of the camera so I convinced them to do a little trial before their big day.

We drove around Alliston looking for some locations to shoot at. We started at a nearby park and then headed to a Heritage Farm and of course found ourselves in a random and smelly field but it was worth it. Take a look at some of my favourite shots below.

The last two are a couple of the outtakes, including our version of American Gothic by Grant Wood. I had so much fun, I don’t think I’ve ever laughed this much during a shoot. I can’t wait for their big day! Let the count down begin!

Ria & Joe | Wedding Preview

I had a blast capturing RIa & Joe’s big day and I couldn’t wait to share these with you guys. It’s been a hectic week but I finally had time to edit so here are some of my favourites.

The last few weddings we’ve had to worry about rain but luckily it wasn’t too heavy so we were still able to get photos outside. PLUS we found this awesome covered bridge perfect for shelter & photos, thanks to the lady we met in the forest who assured us it was worth the muddy trek! Boy, was she right!  We also lucked out when the Embassy Grand in Bolton has this absolutely beautifully lit room where we got to take more photos of the bridal party.

It was a perfect day, I don’t ever think I’ve ever had that much fun or laughed so hard.
Thank you Ria & Joe for making me feel like family and trusting me to capture your special day!



David & Samantha | Wedding Preview

I’ve known Sam & Dave for a few years now and I was so excited when they asked me to shoot their wedding. They tied the knot last Saturday at Black Creek Pioneer Village in Toronto, ON with a beautiful outdoor ceremony and rustic reception. They had been calling for rain all day but it held off until later in the night and they day ended up being just perfect.

I don’t think I’ve ever had that much fun at a wedding! As a Green Bay Packers Fan, Sam surprised Dave with his favourite New England Patriot’s themed garters. During the reception, Sam’s mom surprised everyone with her version of Will Smith’s ‘Getting [Twiggy] With It’. The day was filled with so many more surprises, laughter, tears and so much love!

Vasilis & Gianna | Wedding Preview

Boy does time fly. It had been 7 years since I had last been to Greece and seen any family, the main reason for my trip to Greece in July was my cousin Vasilis’ wedding and I had crazy butterflies leading up to the day. It ended up being a gorgeous day filled with so many laughs and so much love, here are some of my favourite details & getting ready shots!
