Lesley & Ivan’s Not Your Average Backyard Wedding!

Lesley and Ivan’s wedding was fantastic! It was absolutely my honour to be part of their wedding and share in their great day. Their wedding ceremony and reception believe it or not was held in the backyard of Ivan’s parents’ home and let me tell you this was not your average backyard; their attention to detail and care that their family and friends put into decorating and planning was incredible. This truly was a family affair, not only the joining of two individuals, but the expansion of one great family. The day was fantastic all around, and we all had a blast! Here’s a quick slide show of some highlights from our day!

Jean & Jerry’s Cool Niagara Falls Wedding at Chateau des Charmes

It’s not too often these days that I get to second shoot many weddings but when I do I absolutely love it! As a photographer, second shooting sure does take a lot of the wedding day pressure off and allows you to be a little more relaxed and creative. Just this past weekend I had an opportunity to work with a good friend and talented photographer Billy Mallari of pixelblur.

We had a blast shooting Jean & Jerry’s wedding at Chateau des Charmes, we had a great fun loving couple who put so much thought into their wedding day, and had such a touching ceremony. Billy and I both had a blast at their reception and couldn’t have asked for better weather!

Here is a quick slide show of some shots from their big day!

Golnaz & Mehdi Get Married at the Liberty Grand

Golnaz was definitely a beautiful bride, and the dashing Mehdi felt truly blessed on their big day! I had a blast getting to know Golnaz and Mehdi and their wonderful family. They were such warm and inviting people I had such a wonderful time at their wedding held at the opulent Liberty Grand. This wedding was truly a family affair with friends and family traveling from around the globe to participate on their special day. Golnaz and Mehdi are two of the most intelligent people I’ve met Golnaz is completing her Doctorate, and Mehdi his Masters, I wish them both luck as they go forward together, — not like these two will need it!

Here’s a quick slideshow of some of my favourite shots from their day!

Andrew & Xuan Get Engaged

What a busy spring this has been and I’m finally getting my blogging caught up, soooo much shooting and of course all the editing that goes along with it! Well I guess there are worse problems to have. Anyway… I digress…
On a much better note I had the pleasure of a lovely walk along the Harbourfront in Toronto the other day with a really cool contemporary couple, who’s wedding in July is going to be awesome! Andrew and Xuan are really hip and cool cosmopolitan people and were so much fun to photograph along Queens Quay and a few spots in between. We had such a gorgeous day to shoot and chat, no photographer could ask for anything more! Here are a few of my fave shots from the day I hope you enjoy them!
