When Donna and Daneil mentioned that they were considering doing their engagement shoot in Hamilton, at the Dundas community fire station where Daneil is a fireman, we jumped at the opportunity. How often do you get the chance to do a photoshoot at a fire station? Not often, that’s for sure!
Sarah and Glen’s wedding was everything you could imagine a winter wedding would be, complete with a fresh coating of snow surrounding St. George’s Golf and Country Club and beautiful Christmas lights and Christmas trees throughout the historic venue
Leading up to the shoot, we weren’t even sure if we would end up having enough snow in the Toronto area and figured we may have to drive up north again in search of snow as we did last year. Luckily, the GTA got a ton of snow in the couple of days leading up to the engagement session and we were able to drive up to Kortright Centre for Conservation in Vaughn
Do try to choose a location that is meaningful and special to you both as a couple. It could be where you first met, where you had your first date, or where you got engaged. Do consider local spots you love to visit together, such as coffee shops, markets, or your favourite park to stroll in. Do remember you can keep it simple and have your shoot done at home for cozy and relaxed photos.
Diego and I love winter, albeit for very different reasons. Being an avid snowboarder, Diego loves the cold and the snow. Me, on the other hand, I’ve only started to learn snowboarding, and I’m not a fan of the cold and snow. I just love the holidays, family time, and the festive decorations everywhere.
Living in Toronto, we are very lucky to have Niagara-on-the-Lake so close by. Everywhere you turn, there is a winery, and shooting in a winery is always such a treat. The smells, the views, the atmosphere, it's all so romantic and it sets the perfect mood for an engagement photoshoot.
Emille and Kleber's engagement shoot at Humber Bay Park was inspired by the engagement shoot we did at Humber Bay for Patricia and Gavin. Emille and Kleber loved the park's wild nature, the great cityscape view you get from across the lake, and the gorgeous sunset view it offered.
Sarah had been up since 5am to make sure she was ready bright and early for the moment Matt first sees her in her gorgeous wedding dress at Humber Arboretum, the site of their ceremony and their first look photos.
Clau and Julio's downtown Toronto engagement session was a special photoshoot. Both of their families, and many of their friends, were back in Brazil and could not attend their wedding, which was taking place in just a few days.
We arrived at Istanbul Café & Espresso Bar, a cozy Turkish coffee shop located at Yonge and Eglinton, bright and early on a rainy Sunday morning. It was only 8:50 am and raining, and yet with 10 more minutes still to go before opening, there were already several people eagerly waiting for the doors to open.
When Sarah and Matt asked me to take their engagement pictures in St. Catherines Decew Falls, I had no idea what I was getting into. Waterfalls and nature make beautiful backdrops for engagement pictures, and as this was over the Thanksgiving long weekend, I knew we would also be treated with the beauty of the Canadian autumn colors
When brides ask me to do a post-wedding photoshoot in their wedding dress, I normally assume that it's going to be a trash-the-dress session. Gio mentioned she wanted to do such a shoot a while back, and
