Carla and Paul were married Nov 16, 2018. It was our last wedding of the 2018 season and we had SNOW! If you know us, we LOVE LOVE LOVE winter… so the fact that there was so much snow, was such a delight! It was chilly but the air was crisp lending itself to some beautiful colours and textures. We adored all the decor choices – little lights, star wars, romance – it was the perfect mix of “romance” and “nerd”
Laura and Vince were married Nov 10, 2018 at Black Creek Pioneer Village in Toronto. It was one of the first cold days of fall but nothing stopped Laura from braving the cold and using all that Black Creek had to offer. The ceremony was in the Old Town Hall lit by gas lamps, toasty warm and super cute. They even served delish apple cider to warm everyone and create that extra special atmosphere.
Laura, Vince and their two children have such a special family connection, it was wonderful to witness and capture this beautiful day.
Andrea and Paolo were married Oct 13, 2018 at St. Andrew’s church in Etobicoke. It was a lovely ceremony followed by a gorgeous photo session at Black Creek Pioneer Village. Let’s just say this day couldn’t have been more perfect. From the getting ready portion in the morning straight through until the end of the night. Black Creek did not disappoint with the fabulous fall colours and warm-ish weather. We had such a great time with Andrea and Paolo – they were literally non-stop smiles, laughter and full out singing. That type of energy and joy is what makes us truly LOVE what we do.
PLUS: If you are looking for a great photo location – consider, Black Creek. Great textures, nice mix of buildings and nature and overall just such a fabulous and calm location for photos.
Now – we see ALOT of receptions and venues… but our jaws dropped when we walked into the Terrace and saw the amazing decor!!! (check it out below)
We have been so lucky to have photographed family members and friends of these two and were over the moon when asked to photography Robyn and Evan’s wedding as well. It was so wonderful to walk into a room of so many familiar faces, embraces and warmth. Robyn and Evan had us laughing all day and Robyn’s performance and Evan’s speech were some of the best we have seen all year. Congratulations to a fabulous wedding filled love, family and friends.

Patricia and Jason are two of the loveliest people and we were so excited when their wedding day came around. These two are HUGE hockey fans with a long standing HABS vs LEAFS rivalry – check out the cake LOL. The weather though, was nowhere close to a hockey weather wedding, as it was super HOT despite being Sept. Check out their sneak peek below 🙂
We have had the pleasure of shooting so many friends and family members of Marianna and Andre that we feel like we are part of their family. It was an honor to be chosen to capture their and we loved every minute hanging out with these two fabulous people. We even created a same day slideshow of their wedding day to be shown during the reception – because Marianna and Andre’s wedding ceremony did not include vows, they had these beautiful little vow books that they wrote to eachother and shared during their gift openings. We included some of those vows before the slideshow began so that their family and friends could witness the love they share. OMG – and that first song in the slideshow was performed and recorded by Andre himself – beautiful!!!
Isn’t it nice when you get perfect weather for your wedding day?
It’s been a summer full of scorching hot days and pouring rain, but the stars seemed to align for Olivia and Adam.
Starting at the very house that Olivia grew up in, surrounded by the couple’s friends and family, we had a blast with both the bride and groom before doing an emotional reveal on a quiet side street in downtown Toronto.
From there, the day took us to scenic Kleinburg, home of the doctor’s house – which features the most adorable rustic wedding chapel, and beautiful grounds to shoot on.
Places like Klienburg really let our same day edits shine, as they give us lots of opportunities to create unique, beautiful moments that let our couples be themselves, while also giving us great shots for you to show off to your guests later that night. Check out the Sneak Peek and Same Day Video edit below!
So finding the perfect photographer and cinematographers can be a daunting task. Not only do you have to LOVE the work you see, but you have to find people that you get along with. Let’s be honest, you will probably hang out with your photographers more than anyone else on your wedding day lol! Picking from a portfolio book or a quick phone call session might feel impossible… so we thought, let’s show all of our future bride and groom’s out there, what it’s like to work with us! We have shot over 1000 weddings and still find inspiration and fun in each one we do. After all, our job is to capture joy, fun, laughter and add to the good times 🙂
Check out the Behind the Scenes film – showcasing what its like to work with our team of talented artists.
Without a doubt, the best part of photographing weddings in Toronto is the multiculturalism. This summer we had the pleasure of photographing Christina and Justin’s traditional Korean ceremony, held at the gorgeous party room in their condo – could this get any more “Toronto?”. It was an awesome affair with their closest friends and family, wonderful outfits, hilarious games, karaoke, and gorgeous weather. Take a peek!

Congratulations to Hatice and Ryan who were married at City Hall in Toronto and then had an amazing party at Cluny Bistro in Distillery. We loved every minute of shooting this intimate affair. Surrounded by close family and friends, this wedding truly had it all. The wedding had a rustic French vintage theme because of the couples love for Paris and old movies. There was so much attention to detail – from old tea cups which they made into candles, tarnished silver platters, rustic pails for the flowers with soft pink and white flowers. AND… CHECK OUT the groom’s jacket – wow! Love Love Love!!!! A perfect compliment to the bride’s Galina wedding dress.

From the bride:
Jewelry/Rings: “My engagement ring was hand designed by Ryan by Brilliant Earth. He knows I’m socially conscious so he chose a diamond that was Canadian and conflict free. Our wedding bands are from People’s”.
Décor/Linens: “Chairman Mills for the linen and décor was handmade and shopped around vintage stores and online. Our theme is rustic vintage French because I love Paris and old movies and am a mushy romantic at heart. You’ll see elements of vintage with the old tea cups which we made into candles, tarnished silver platters, rustic with use of pails for the flowers, romance with the soft pink and white flowers flower, French because of the venue (Cluny Bistro) and pops of colour. My friend was sweet enough to hand make our seating chart which is an old frame which she painted and glued a new backing”.
