We had such a lovely late afternoon walk through the park with these two. Chatting and laughing non-stop. The light and flowers were perfect. We even saw an owl! I can not wait for their wedding at the Brock House this summer!

Lately, a lot of people have been asking me what I think the next trend for wedding photography is. I'm predicting it's getting a photographer to capture a day in the couple's honeymoon.

This makes sense for SO MANY reasons. First, you are in one of the most gorgeous (and probably expensive splurge) places you will ever go. This is the place you WANT to get photos. You've saved for it, you've dreamed about it and you've spent countless hours researching on-line to find the perfect honeymoon holiday. An i-phone photo is not going to do justice. And when you get home, all you have are the pictures...and bills. Let's make sure the pictures are fantastic!

Second, the stress of the wedding is over. It's just about you two. Now you can relax, laugh and cuddle. Again, this is what makes excellent photos and memories that you want to remember. Walking through the streets hand-in-hand in Paris, at sea on the Mediterranean, driving through the rolling hills of Tuscany. The stuff dreams are made of.

Lastly, you still have your wedding workout body. Let's be honest about this...there is a good chance this is the best shape you will ever be in. I never wanted to buy into this idea. But 5 years after marriage, I can say I don't quite have the abs and arms I did on my wedding day. I figure, you worked hard for it, celebrate and remember it!

You have great LOCATION, great ENERGY, and LOOKING your BEST! It's the exact recipe for PERFECT PHOTOS and memories to last a lifetime.!

These two are getting married today and I couldn't be more excited! They are such a lovely and laid back couple.

Here is a sneak peek of their 'interactive guestbook"! I love this style of guestbook. It is so much more interesting that the old style with just a blank page. Because trust me, I go to a lot of weddings, and all you will get are a hundred comments of, "best wishes," "wishing you happily ever after," "congrats."

I've been to couples homes a year after their wedding and they still have this book on their coffee table. Their guests continue to add to it whenever they are over. The questions are interchangeable, so you can customize it to fit your style!

This was such an adventure. 4 hour ride to the waterfalls, 30min hike, everyone and all the equipment getting soaked, and racing the light to capture some photos at the rice fields. But going on adventures with great people is the best part of our job! Can't wait for Cindy & Quan's wedding this year, I have a feeling is going to be a lot of fun!

Elopements have to be the most romantic thing – EVER. Two people, running away to a beautiful place. They don’t need anyone or anything, just each other. They are also my favourite to photograph. Witnessing this special moment in a couple’s life and spending their first day together documenting their love. I always find the photos are so full of excitement and romance.

There is no denying the connection and love Susan and Eric have for each other. It’s infectious. They were so much fun to be with, I could have photographed them all day. Big shout out to Tanja for flying out from Germany to second shoot for me on this magical day. She was a rockstar.

Oh, where to begin. There was so much to love about this wedding...namely, all the love. Someone asked me recently what makes a good couple’s portrait and right away I thought of these two. Ignoring the fact that they are both ridiculously gorgeous. What makes me love these portraits so much is the love and connection you can see between Sasha & Chris.

Nothing was heavily staged, we just let them be them in the moment..…and we stood back and documented their love. Granted some people feel more comfortable with PDA that others, but I like to believe when you’ve found your true love, there is no hiding your feelings ;)

There are so many notable memories from this wedding. First, we took portraits where their first date was (cute idea). Second, how cold it was and how much Sasha was a rockstar for not complaining even though she had the least amount of clothing on! Did you see the photo of the leaf with frost on it? And we can’t forget how much of a party it was. Let me just say there were a lot of topless men on the dance floor at one point (sorry, I didn't post these photos).

My last favorite memory was a lesson I learned. It was past midnight and we were officially off and pretty tired from the long day. But I decided instead of sitting down and resting while Ken packed up our gear…I headed to the dance floor for just a few more photos. When I got there Sasha was dancing with her dad. I was so happy that I got to capture this moment for her. It was just a little extra work for me, but I got to preserve a memory for Sasha that will last a lifetime.

It’s no secret that I LOVE all the pretty dresses, shoes and décor at weddings. I get so excited about them and it’s not even my wedding! But what is most important and what makes me LOVE my job and keep putting in that extra effort is capturing these moments with family and friends. This is what is most precious (and priceless) about weddings.

We are so delighted this wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty!

Here is a little sneak peek of Batool & Justin's spring wedding! They got married at the Shangri-la and we did portraits at the Hycroft. The Hycroft is always a great place to take photos if there is rain in the forecast. It was raining during these photos and you can't even tell!

Claire and Ben had a gorgeous garden wedding at one of my favourite venues, the Hart House. Everything was perfect. The sun was shinning, the venue looked beautiful, the guests were none stop laughing and Claire looked breathless. This stunning wedding came together by Count Down Events. I especially loved the flower arch for their ceremony and olive twig on each plate, by Celsia Florist. I also adored Claire’s bridesmaids look. Their hair and make-up by All Dolled Up, was so soft and natural and their dresses were definitely wearable again.
