Jessica & Norbert’s big day took place last summer and I’m excited to finally be sharing it with you today!

These two lovely folks had a traditional Roman Catholic wedding ceremony at Saint Matthew Parish in Oakville, where they were officially married in front of all their closest family & friends.  We captured all those happy faces in their family formal photos outside the church, and then we moved on to the wedding reception at Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville.

RBG Burlington, Royal Botanical Gardens, Engagement Photography, Mediterranean Greenhouse, Hendrie Park, Spring

The Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington is quickly becoming one of the most popular places we shoot engagement sessions.  Even though the trees and flowers weren’t quite in bloom yet this past May, we still had lots of amazing places to take advantage of for Vivian & Jonathan’s engagement shoot.  The whole place was pretty much empty which was great, and had this lovely quiet and romantic vibe.  It was still a little cool outside at Hendrie Park, so when Jonathan gave his jacket to Vivian to keep warm it was the cutest photo op.  We moved inside shortly after to take a few more images inside the Mediterranean Greenhouse.

The wedding we captured last weekend for Jennifer & Terence is so full of amazing moments that it’s going to be a tough edit, but I just couldn’t wait to share this series of images shot the morning of the wedding.  We photographed the first look moment between Jennifer & her father where he saw her for the first time in her wedding dress.  His his little girl really was about to walk down the aisle to get married.  I also love how Jennifer’s sister Cynthia is looking on with a happy smile.

Lots more to come from this amazing wedding day!

Hart House wedding photography, University of Toronto wedding, U of T, outdoor ceremony, spring

A huge day for Teresa & Joe – this wedding was our first at Hart House at the University of Toronto, and it was gorgeous!  We were so excited that we had great weather so the ceremony could be held outside in the quad as planned vs. being moved inside for rain.

Teresa & Joe both got ready with their ladies & gentlemen upstairs at Hart House, and they decided to do a “first look” so that we could have lots of photo time (which I love!)  We positioned them so we got lots of great shots before they’d turn to look at each other.  It’s always fun shooting a few images this way before the big moment because there’s so much anticipation in the air.  I just adore the look on each of their faces as they see each other for the first time all dressed up.  That’s true love.

I could go on about the details from the beautiful navy blue bridesmaids dresses to the amazing blue ombre wedding cake, but pictures explain better than I ever could, so please take a look at Teresa & Joe’s amazing U of T Hart House wedding & reception inside The Great Hall below.

Steam Whistle Brewery wedding photography, Steam Whistle Brewing wedding pictures, ceremony & reception, winter wedding photos in Toronto, snow storm wedding pictures, night time photography, Intercontinental Hotel, Front Street, bride & groom first look

Well, it’s definitely the summer, but we are still posting weddings from last year so here’s a winter wonderland wedding for you to take your mind off the heat.

Jessica & Anthony got married 2 weeks after I delivered our second baby, our daughter Jillian.  We had an emergency back-up photographer lined up in case I had to stay in the hospital, but luckily the birth went great and I was healthy enough to shoot the wedding after all!

We began at the Intercontinental Hotel on Front Street in Toronto for some getting ready photos with the girls and guys.  Jessica looked absolutely stunning and had gorgeous details (loved all her jewelry, dress, hair piece, shoes…)  We also got some great shots of her handsome groom Anthony before the two saw each other for their “first look” downstairs in the lobby of the hotel.

Whenever we shoot a winter wedding, the daylight (or lack thereof) is always super important.  While we are totally happy working in darker situations, on wedding days I always love to give our clients the best of both worlds (daylight and flash / video light imagery).  We got outside just in time to catch the last of the daylight, amidst quite a snow storm!  It was pretty romantic but wow was it cold & slushy.  I can’t even begin to describe how incredible these two were out in the slush and snow – especially Jessica in nothing but her dress and heels!  Just wow.  The result was stunning!

We continued shooting at the wedding ceremony & reception venue, The Steam Whistle Brewery.  It was our first time shooting here and it was so unique!  Cool spots with tons of beer (if you love beer – this is your place!)

After a beautiful ceremony and family formals, we finished out our coverage with a romantic snowy night time photo shoot outside the Steam Whistle Brewery, in front of the CN Tower and Rogers Centre.

Congratulations Jessica & Anthony!  Justin and I were so happy we were able to come through for you and shoot your wedding after all:) Thank you for being so amazing when we were welcoming our newest (and last!) addition to our family.
