The title of this post was actually supposed to be “TORONTO Family Portraits”.

It was a Monday – left Whitby at 9:30am to get to the Scarborough Bluffs for a family shoot. This was a family I had worked with last year – I got amazing images back in 2013 so I was pretty excited about the shoot this year.

But once I left the 401, it was SOOO foggy I knew I’d have to cancel the shoot. While we were talking about rescheduling I mentioned Whitby was not foggy when I left my house. To my surprise, they decided to come to Whitby and have their shoot here. :)

Started at Central Park and ended our shoot by the lake. We didn’t get a sunny day, but the photos are stunning anyways! Loved them so much I had to share these with you – even though I have over 5000 wedding images to go through right now.

This is Hanaa & Asher’s wedding day – you might remember them from a gorgeous engagement session I shot last April, at the Edward Gardens (click here to view it!). The day was beautiful and this couple was super photogenic so I was counting the days for their big day, at the Manor, in Kettleby.

I remember we had a bit of chance of rain for that Sunday, but we were really lucky and got another beautiful day. Decoration was classic and elegant and the party could’ve not been more fun! Reception was definitely the highlight of the day – Hanaa and Asher were super cute singing “Time of My Life” (from Dirty Dancing), we had some very emotional (and some very funny) speeches and the guests were really enjoying themselves at the dance floor.

Congrats, Hanaa and Asher! May the years to come bring loads of joy and fill your lives with unbounded love. ♥

If I were to rank my favorite engagement shoots from this year so far, this couple would easily be on my top 3 list. I absolutely loved Melanie and Jeff engagement session at High Park (click here to view it!) and could not wait for their wedding at the cool and brand new Airship 37.

Their wedding photos started right at the Distillery District – no first looks nor getting ready photos. Melanie didn’t feel like she needed it and, although I do love taking pictures of those moments, I’m not sure if I would want it either if it was my wedding day (I got married a long, long, long time ago when people didn’t even think of having getting ready photos – hey, I’m not that old, it just happens that I got married at 19).

Decoration at the ceremony was simple and beautiful – super kawaii origami and the blue palette was stunning! It went so well with Melanie’s eyes. I liked it so much because you could truly see how it all came together perfectly. At the reception, instead of games, I had the privilege to watch some amazing Odori dance and drumming performances. Guests were completely blown away by those.

Congrats, Melanie and Jeff! Wishing you a lifetime of happiness. ♥
