It was so fun getting to know Lara and Martin and see their favourite hang outs in Toronto such as the subway station, their fave pub, and the neighbourhood around their city condo - these type of engagement sessions are the best way to ensure we get to know each other before your wedding day! And so fun, you will be more relaxed than you would be if we posed at a random park or place you have no attachment to.
When you are searching for a wedding photographer are you drawn to the photographer’s personal life, or do you back away from it? Does your photographer’s home life play a part in whether or not you would hire them?
Sometimes I feel that being a mom to four (yes, FOUR!) kids may repel potential couples from hiring me as their wedding photographer. Maybe they think “she must be so busy, how can she focus on us and our wedding?” or maybe they would rather hire the young hip kid-less photographer because they can relate better to their current life.
I met Jane and Danny in Toronto near their condo for some engagement photos. We started out at Music Park, which is where Danny proposed to Jane! Then we took a walk, the sun went down and it got really cold but it was just more reason for them to snuggle up! Off to skating at one of Toronto's outdoor rinks - seems like a typical Canadian thing to do for photos right?! Check out these two lovebirds here!
Welcome to the magical forest of the Kortright Centre in Kleinburg Ontario. This is where I met LIndsay and Kyle and Moose for their early morning engagement session. We were the only ones there which was peaceful and awesome. Hey couples - one benefit of getting up early for a sunrise or early morning session is that you are usually the only people there and its quiet and fun and you can get romantic without an audience :)
I had a blast this past fall at Rockwood Conservation Area, photographing a day full of new and past clients. Its always amazing when clients come back to see me year after year, and I cannot believe how big the gets have gotten!
Here are some of my favourites from 2017 - I had so many that I felt I needed to put them in categories this year!
Starting with THE MORNING OF, and continuing with Emotional Moments, LAUGHTER and JOY, Kids + Pets, SELFIES (because there are sooo many), Bloopers and Funny Moments, Party Time and Sentimental Moments.
Some wedding photographers will insist on you hiring a second photographer while other photographers I know prefer shooting alone. At the end of the day you are the one hiring the photographer and it will be up to you if you want one or two people photographing your wedding. To help make a decision, here are some factors to consider.
Jenna and Rory. They have a wonderful love story of two families who spent summers on the same lake. And since Jenna is a writer I'm going to let her tell you in her own words because they will sound much better than if I wrote them. Jenna and Rory got married on a mild fall day at a quaint restaurant called the Black Forest Inn, that they said "felt like the cottage", so it was the perfect place for these two cottagers to get married.
