Toronto Distillery District and Cherry Beach Engagement Session

Toronto Distillery District and Cherry Beach Engagement Session

Christine and Tony met sailing so it only seemed natural to shoot engagement pictures at the beach. They chose Cherry Beach in Toronto, and then we headed to their home with awesome views overlooking Toronto skyline and the CN Tower.  They live right in the Distillery District so we popped down to the streets to end the session

Ruby | 50 Beautiful Children - Beauty Revived Magazine

I am so honoured to be chosen as 1 of 50 photographers across the land to select and photograph a child for the upcoming edition of Beauty Revived Magazine - 50 Beautiful Children.  The magazine can be ordered here and there will also be a blog post coming in October that I will link! 

I knew right away who I wanted to photograph and tell her story - Ruby. 

Holi Powder Family Photo Shoot and some Tips to Make it Awesome

Here are some quick tips if you plan to do a session with coloured Holi Powder. 

Tip #1 - Just Buy It! At first I was not able to find it in stores, only for a really high price on Amazon, so I googled and found a ton of recipes online for DIY Holi Powder.  FIVE days later, I made about 6 bags of it and let me tell you, it was a P.I.T.A.  Plus, I followed a recipe that used flour, and flour does not stick when its dry, so when we threw it, it did practically nothing.  Good thing about 3 days before the shoot my friend messaged me and offered to give me a ton of bags of the real stuff.  Buy the real stuff, it sticks to skin and is super vibrant and awesome!

It's Your Day to Shine - and why I love Unplugged Weddings   Toronto Wedding Photographer

Many couples are opting for an Unplugged Ceremony. Not the entire wedding (hey, those dance party candids are always amazing!), but just the ceremony. The part of the day that means the most as you are actually becoming a married couple. Read more to find out why unplugged ceremonies are big on the to-do list and how you can politely ask your guests to enjoy your moment

Jenna and Rory | Skating on Palgrave Pond | Caledon

It was a cold and blistery morning. Minus 12 degrees (celsius) to be exact. But Jenna and Rory showed up to their engagement session at Palgrave Pond with smiles and coffee and a cute dog named Rosco.  This pond is the most incredible place in the winter.

And to all you Moms, I am you. I know you worry about losing "those last 10 lbs" or getting the perfect haircut, or waiting until you feel better about something else in your life, but let's be honest here - there will ALWAYS be something, some reason to say "maybe later" and put off booking those family photos.

Considering these two get married in St. Thomas, Ontario at the Masonic Temple in only two short weeks, I thought it was time to blog their super fun engagement session! We actually met at my neighbour's property and drove around on her Gator to find some super amazing pockets of light to shoot in!

A Canadian Love Story | Kayla ♥ Dejan's Engagement Session | Alliston Wedding Photography

I cannot WAIT for August when I get to hang with these two love birds again at their wedding!! Only this time I hope it is a lot warmer!

They braved the COLD winter for this session. Did I tell you this February was the coldest February on record in over 100 years?! Seriously.

But as I told them at 730 in the morning when we met up at the Pond...."your love will keep you warm".

We shot at a super cool outdoor pond in Palgrave, right off of Highway 50. There was even a guy out there at 7am clearing the ice, getting it ready for the day's visitors. So cool. I will definitely be going here with my family in the winters coming.

You can see their fusion video here as well!


Jessica & Isaac Engaged at High Park | Toronto Engagement Photographer

Is it June yet? I can't wait for this wedding!

Photos were taken at High Park - the same location where Isaac proposed! (insert: aaaaawwww!)

This was a whole lot of laughs, and a lot of romance - this couple knows how to pose and love on each other like no one's business!  I love the love. Genuine ♥
