I will miss this couple! Hayley and Dave were such a fun twosome to be around. I clearly remember driving to their hotel under the heaviest rain ever, hoping for it to be done by the time we needed to go outside. Even though the rain was gone by the time we had to go outside, everything was pretty wet so we couldn’t walk that much before the ceremony, but we still manage to get some great images.

They got married at the beautiful Eglinton Grand. One of my favorite features of that venue is the first dance with all the guests watching from above. Let me share some of my favorite moments from the day with you all.

Hayley and Dave, you two are perfect together. Congratulations and best wishes always!

It takes me at least a good couple of hours to write a wedding blog post. I have to go through hundreds of pictures and choose around 100 images so I’m able to tell a story. I have to resize the images and even edit some! You see, I like to blur all pictures where the couple’s last names are shown. I could just leave those images out, but in this case, I loved Rachel’s wedding dress hanger so much, I had to post it.

This is Rachel and Michael’s wedding and my first time at the Black Creek Pioneer Village – what an amazing venue! Actually, it was my first wedding of the year where we could go outside for pictures. Yes, weather is pretty nasty this year and I’m really tired of having to reschedule shoots and, with weddings, shooting indoors! Hopefully, summer is here to stay and all this rain should be gone soon!

The truth is I shouldn’t really be working on my blog since I have a bunch of shoots to edit – so I won’t talk much. Please enjoy their beautiful wedding day! :)

Congrats, Rachel and Mike!

From our first meeting, I just remembered Ashley was really pretty and Chris was “okay” – so I was surprised when I saw them both again. I’m so lucky to get all these good-looking couples this year! :)

I also have something to confess: right before the E-Session, I take a look at the wedding agreement to get the groom’s-to-be name. Most of the time I don’t remember just because they usually never talk during our meeting – I can say 80% of grooms just say “Whatever she’s happy with”. And although I knew Ashley’s fiancĂ© was called Chris because she mentioned his name several times on our e-mails exchange, I had to pause several times when talking to them because everytime I looked at him I wanted to call him Ryan [Gosling]. Ashley could be easily called Katy [Perry] if I didn’t know her name. :)

These two are extremely photogenic and it was really hard to edit out images. I basically just removed some images from the end of our shoot because they looked tired – that’s the disadvantage of shooting on a work day: they already start our shoot kind of tired. =/

It’s been almost a year since my last maternity blog post, so I guess it’s time for a new one. The truth is I do tend to focus on engagements and weddings here and most of my families/maternity pictures are just posted on my Facebook Page.

Iris and Daniel are expecting baby Sophia – due to arrive pretty soon! It was my first time shooting at the Kelso Conversation Area and I must say that location is pretty nice! Weather could be better, but as of now I already gave up on the idea we’ll have a great summer, so I’m happy if we just get a day with no rain.

Please enjoy my favorite photos from their shoot. Congrats, Iris and Daniel! May you find babyhood a wonderful experience filled with lots of happiness and great memories.

This is one of the most interesting stories behind a family photo shoot. Olivia’s parents wanted to capture some nice moments to remember before going on an one year trip through the Pan-American highway.

This shoot is from a couple of months ago and they’re already in their camper driving through the greatest sceneries! They actually have a blog and you can checkout their adventures on this link.

Good luck, guys! Hope you have the time of your life in this amazing trip!
