summer weddings

2018 Year in Review

During the process of going through all of my weddings and sessions for this year and compiling them into this slideshow, I was struck by the concept of love. There are so many people on this planet but each of us have our core group of people who make up our circle of love. Out of billions we connect with just a tiny portion of people above all others and that is so beautiful to me. Our people who make us feel safe and loved and supported.

2018 was one for the books. I was able to photograph so many people in love. There were intimate backyard weddings, campground festivities, hot Summer days and cool Fall rain and plenty of tears coming from my face. But most of all there were people who said I do to a life together.

This year was a leap of faith. It was the year I finally took my business full time and committed to putting my full time energy into my business. It was a year of change. We moved into our current home, adopted our beautiful cat Livy and I finally saw Wicked for the first time. (I know right, have I been living under a rock).

2019 will be another year of beautiful couples, families all together for maybe the first time in a long time. Two families becoming one. Of precious puppies walking their humans down the aisle, of dad’s tears as their daughters have grown. Proud mom’s as they dance with their sons. Another year of laughter, crazy groomsmen and happy tears. Bring it on.

Miranda and Dave | Scarborough Bluffs Engagement

Sometimes I am just so blown away by the beautiful locations that I get to shoot. This engagement session was a prime example of this. Miranda and Dave chose the most amazing spots for their engagement session. The Scarborough Bluffs in Toronto are a popular spot for photographers and you can definitely see why. Not only did we utilize this beautiful spot but nearby we found an enchanted forest filled with wildflowers. I KNOW! It was crazy stunning. As soon as I arrived I immediately had a heart attack it was so amazing. Plus the light was so dreamy I could hardly stand it.

Miranda and Dave are two of the sweetest people you will ever meet and they are so in love! They met at a church young adults function. It was total fate as Miranda wasn’t even planning on going that night. But destiny is destiny and after sitting at the same table that night there was no going back. This dreamy summer sunset engagement shoot at Scarborough bluffs was the perfect way to showcase their love and they just melted into each other all evening. Miranda was like a long haired mermaid that stumbled upon her waiting prince on the beach.

Mat and Misun | Edward Gardens Engagement

Prepare yourself for the epic prettiness! Mat and Misun celebrated their upcoming wedding with a gorgeous and fun engagement session at Edward Gardens in Toronto. First of all Edward Gardens is such a stunning location. Second of all, Mat and Misun are absolute perfection.

When I walked up to them both in the parking lot before the session I noticed that Misun had two bouquets with her that her friend had made for her. Not just the bouquets, but floral headpieces and boutonnieres as well! It was beyond amazing. Now I don't know if you have noticed but it has rained a lot this summer. In fact the week of their session it rained as well. But that particular evening the sun was out in full force and we got a beautiful warm summer sunset that we've been missing so much lately. It all came together to showcase just how sweet and in love they are. 

Mat and Misun, I am so incredibly happy for you both and am borderline obsessed with your style. I can't wait for your August wedding.
