I love sessions that mean I get to see previous clients again! We met Nicole and Julian through Nicole’s sister Steph, when we photographed her maternity session back in 2020. I had such a lovely time with Steph and her husband Alec, so when Nicole and Julian reached out, I was so excited! One thing that makes Nicole and Julian such a unique couple is the absolute fun and joy they have around one another! Their engagement session in downtown Toronto was just a sneak peek, but seeing them together on their wedding day was such a treat. They laughed, they cried, and they looked at each other with all the warmth and affection one could have.

…where birds chirped and a cool breeze blew through the hosta flowers.

Nicole and Julian’s beautiful wedding day began at the Westin Harbour Hotel, where Nicole and her girls got ready. With a gorgeous view of Lake Ontario and the Toronto Islands, Nicole slipped into her sweetheart ballgown covered in layers of tulle and her crystal-encrusted Badgley Mischka heels. We then moved to another iconic Toronto location, Osgoode Hall, for Nicole and Julian’s first look and portraits. Because they decided on a first look, Nicole and Julian were able to spend the rest of the day together without having to be apart before the ceremony.

Their ceremony took place in the beautiful garden at Fantasy Farms, where birds chirped and a cool breeze blew through the hosta flowers. With personalized vows and without a dry eye, Nicole and Julian were married.

Nicole and Julian, thank you for trusting me with your beautiful day! Your wedding day was so meaningful, intentional, and focused on what’s most important: the friends and family you were celebrating with. I hope these images help you relive it many times in the years to come. Congratulations!

Tala and Ali’s family wedding session at The Bluffs was a beach-lover’s absolute dream to photograph! A gorgeous sunset made the sand glow as Tala and Ali commemorated their marriage with photos that they can enjoy for decades to come.

Tala and Ali got married the day after their session. Since they were unable to have a photographer document their vows or celebration, they wanted a separate session to ensure they would still have some family portraits. So, Tala reached out to me to see if we could have a mid-week family session at the beach! Portraits on the white sand of Scarborough Bluffs and family photos to memorialize all of Tala’s and Ali’s relationships were the perfect ways to officially welcome this new season in their relationship!

I was even more excited to capture these sweet moments when Tala shared that she also loves detail photos! We made sure to set aside some time to capture their wedding invitation and some of their gorgeous details. The stars of the show were Tala’s Jimmy Choos, some of my favourites shoes I’ve ever photographed! Tala came prepared with additional styling details that helped tie all the details together. To top things off, we scheduled some time for a short portrait session of Tala and Ali by themselves!

Tala and Ali, thank you so much entrusting me with your wedding portrait session! It was so beautiful to see how you value and care for your families. It was wonderful getting to meet them all too! I’m in love with your images, and I hope these photos serve your relationship as you continue growing and deepening in your love for each other. Congratulations!

Elissa and Geoff had their Princess Point engagement on one of the most beautiful Sunday mornings we’ve had all year!

With their original wedding date set for 2020, they were one of many couples who had to postpone. They will finally celebrate later this year at Guild Inn Estate! In the meantime, we walked around Princess Point to capture images of their sweet relationship. With the sun on their faces and the trees in their full summer foliage, they were able to enjoy a quiet and peaceful walk with their adorable pups, Jake and Oscar.

Elissa and Geoff met when Geoff was visiting his brother at Western University. Geoff had recently adopted his dog, Jake, and Elissa came by to say hello. It was sweet to see them walking Jake and his new his pandemic-puppy friend Oscar! And if you LOVE Elissa’s gorgeous outfit, you may enjoy learning that her sister–a stylist!–put together the look! She also joined us for the session and ultimately helped to make every image even more beautiful and put together. If you’re considering bringing a stylist to your session, you won’t regret it!

Elissa and Geoff, after years of waiting to get married, you must be so excited to finally celebrate with friends and family! I hope these images will always be a sweet memory as you look back on this (extended) season of engagement!

Peggy and Ross had their engagement session at a bucket list location of mine: Casa Loma! Casa Loma has many beautiful locations for photos. From a back garden and a fountain to an indoor conservatory and library, the castle is reminiscent of the board game Clue (minus a murder and plus a whole lot of romance!) Inspired by Kate and William’s engagement, finding a location with a classic vibe was important to Peggy and Ross. As a fun bonus, Casa Loma was hosting the Princess Diana Exhibition! With a 1957 Rolls Royce welcoming guests at the entrance, it was the perfect location to celebrate their engagement!

Peggy and Ross met near the beginning of the pandemic, and many of their initial dates consisted of walks outdoors. Since then, they have expressed their classic taste with dates to the zoo, Art Gallery of Ontario, and Toronto Symphony Orchestra. A deepening affection grew between them until health scares led them to realize their love for each other. On Christmas Day of 2021, Ross proposed to Peggy, and Peggy said yes.

Peggy and Ross, thank you for trusting me with your engagement session photos! I loved walking around Casa Loma, learning about our similar love of chicken nuggets (Peggy), navigating groups of tourists to get the perfect shot, and getting to know you both better. I can’t wait to capture more images of the special moments in your relationship on your wedding day! Until then, I hope your engagement photos bring a lot of joy to you both (as they have for me)!

Kristine and Will’s Guelph Arboretum engagement session was the perfect way to welcome spring! With golden light, cherry blossoms, and conversations about our mutual love of food, cats, and romantic comedies, our evening together was full of laughter and–of course–gorgeous photos!

When I first met Kristine and Will, we hit it off right away. I learned that, like me, they enjoy staying at home, eating snacks, and watching shows. During their engagement session, we walked around the Arboretum getting to know each other and swapping stories. Referring to themselves as an old married couple, Kristine and Will joked with each other our entire time together. They met in 10th grade, and their similar sense of humour initially drew them to each other. When Will was studying in Guelph and Kristine in Toronto, their relationship deepened and they referred to that long-distance season as the “good ol’ msn days”.

Will timed his proposal to match Chandler’s

Will proposed on Valentine’s day. By planning a relaxed night with comfort foods and a Friends marathon, he ensured Kristine didn’t suspect anything. Knowing that Kristine liked Monica and Chandler as a couple, Will timed his proposal to match Chandler’s. In his own words, “when the proposal scene was about to start, I excused myself to the washroom where I had my suit and tie prepared, along with the engagement ring. When I came out, Chandler was starting to get down on one knee, and I paused it right there, and I got down on one knee and asked her to marry me.” To state the obvious, Kristine said yes!

Kristine and Will, I absolutely can’t wait for your wedding day. Thank you for trusting me with capturing your relationship! Your engagement session was so much fun and I know we’ll have a blast again in August. I hope I can meet your cats, get in on some new jokes, and blow you away with more gorgeous photos of the two of you together.

Lovisa and Jack had a gorgeous morning engagement session at R.C. Harris and with Canadian weather, it definitely qualified as an adventure! This sweet couple was willing to brave the sharp lake-side wind in order to get this location all to themselves, and it was so worth it! Add in an adorable puppy and the creamiest sunrise and we’ve got ourselves a very special session!

These two love all the small daily moments, where most of life actually happens

Lovisa and Jack met in the gym at McMaster University, where they were both training in Olympic weightlifting. Through many 2-4 hour training sessions, they really got to know each other. Lovisa was initially drawn to Jack’s discipline, resilience, wisdom, and especially his patience! Jack waited about four years for Lovisa to figure out that he was the one!

These two love all the the small daily moments, which is where most of life actually happens! When they first started going out, Lovisa and Jack hardly went on official dates because they just loved doing everyday tasks together. They love to camp, hike, walk their dog Missy (take a peak at some of her adorable antics below!), and enjoy some of Jack’s own coffee that he roasts, grounds, and brews himself. Lovisa even remembers the moment she “knew”: that time Jack insistently worked to fix her white-out tape.

Lovisa and Jack, congratulations on your engagement and thank you for inviting me to be a part of your story! Getting to learn about you guys individually and as a couple has been so fun! I’ve been so encouraged to to see all the ways you guys love each other in so many small every-day ways!

Love this session? Check out some of our past engagements at R.C. Harris!

Today’s wedding at the The Symes has images from both 2020 and 2021! Mena and Matt’s wedding celebrations were divided across two days; they opted to split their ceremony and reception, and I’m so glad they did! One silver lining of having a split wedding has been the ability to reconnect with our couples! For Mena and Matt, on top of their ceremony and reception, we were also able to document their engagement earlier in 2020!

Time set aside to revel in the joy of their commitment

Mena and Matt had a small church ceremony that was sweet, family-oriented, and the focal point of this next step of their relationship. With a sweet first look beforehand in front of their families, Mena and Matt were intentional about enjoying their day despite the restrictions. I also loved getting to see and capture the celebration at their reception a year later, a time set aside to revel in the joy of their commitment to each other, and to share their happiness with their community.

Sandeep from Lumos Events was at the helm of both days, ensuring they ran smoothly and enjoyably. The celebrations were filled with warmth and some of the most amazing food ever! These two families know how to celebrate well, but what was probably my absolute favourite detail to photograph was the cake! The bride’s own sister made the most beautiful cake for the day of their ceremony, complete with macarons, figs, and berries. Mena was also able to wear her dress twice (how many brides would love the chance to wear their dress again!)

Mena and Matt, your celebrations were such a joy to document, and it is so fun to look back on them now! I loved how you were not only intentional about spending time with your families, but also deliberate about serving them well throughout the day! Your love for each other is so apparent and we’re praying it continues to grow over the years! Congratulations again!

The Après la Pluie spring editorial was dreamed up as a response to the difficulties of the past few years. With this styled shoot, we wanted to turn away from the dark clouds and instead focus on the hope and optimism that comes after a storm. We used soft dusty blues to set the scene and infused pops of peaches, pinks, and yellows to recall the promise of new life and good cheer. The highlight of this editorial was the floral umbrella created by Sunny of Dawndust Florals. Not only was it an incredible feat of artistry and engineering, it was such an joy to photograph. It was also such a treat to have dress designer Aurélia Hoang on site during the shoot!

Delicate details, relaxed silhouettes, and dreamy textures rounded out this fine-art inspired shoot. And being able to photograph a newlywed couple for our models added such sincerity and sereneness to the day!

…the promise of new life and good cheer.

We absolutely loved working with all the vendors Behind the I Do recruited to be a part of this editorial, but especially so the ladies of Behind the I Do itself, Candy and Sally! They were kind enough to include us in some of the planning and design, and it gave us a deep appreciation for all the hard work they put in to make this spring editorial a success. Not only was this an incredible experience, but it was such a joy to see Après La Pluie featured here on Wedding Chicks!

We hope you enjoy some of our favourite moments from this editorial!

If there’s one thing more difficult than picking an outfit for yourself, it’s helping your man choose what to wear to an engagement session! One way to help our guys feel confident and ready to take photos is to make sure he looks and feels amazing! And while many of our grooms-to-be don’t want to steal the spotlight from their ladies, we want to ensure that our guys still look handsome, classic, and the perfect pair to our future brides!

Here are some of our top tips that will help ensure that your guy will come to the engagement session looking the best he possibly can!

1. Something Formal

A suit is one of the most flattering things a guy can wear! The structured shoulders emphasize the strength and broadness of your chest and the head to toe monochrome can make you look taller and leaner. It’s a classic and timeless way to look put-together that will never go out of style!

Novotel Hotel // Andrea & Michael

2. Something Neutral

Neutrals are universally flattering and timeless, and they ensure that everyone will look at how great you look and not at your outfit! You will be the star of the photos! Neutrals include black, white, grey, tan, navy, and every shade in between. There’s nothing as classic as a cool neutral!

Old Newmarket // Danielle & Rafi

3. Something Printed

Some of our grooms decide to show off their stylish side with a printed suit! They’re both fun and adventurous and we love getting insight into our groom’s personality. As long as the outfit doesn’t overwhelm you or your bride, we can’t wait to see what you come to the session with!

Financial District // Naomi & John

4. Something Layered

Layers are a great way to add interest and dimension to an outfit! Some people aren’t big on colour, but adding layers of textures can easily elevate your outfit and make you look like a million bucks!

R.C. Harris // Jen & Paul

5. Something Accessorized

We love seeing our grooms-to-be invested in their engagement session and in their outfit! A well-dressed man is so much fun to photograph! One of the ways our guys can show off their fashionable side is through incorporating high-end accessories. These can include watches, cufflinks, pocket squares, and even rings!

6. Something Matching

A study published in 2012, “Shoes as a source of first impressions“, claimed that one of the first things people notice about others is the shoes they wear. Shoes say a lot more than we expect! And what better message can they say than “We look great!” One rule to remember: while shoes and belts don’t have to match perfectly in tone, the same general colour is the best way to go. Brown with brown, and black with black!

If there’s one thing more difficult than picking an outfit for yourself, it’s helping your man choose what to wear to an engagement session! One way to help our guys feel confident and ready to take photos is to make sure he looks and feels amazing! And while many of our grooms-to-be don’t want to steal the spotlight from their ladies, we want to ensure that our guys still look handsome, classic, and the perfect pair to our future brides!

Here are some of our top tips that will help ensure that your guy will come to the engagement session looking the best he possibly can!

1. Something Formal

A suit is one of the most flattering things a guy can wear! The structured shoulders emphasize the strength and broadness of your chest and the head to toe monochrome can make you look taller and leaner. It’s a classic and timeless way to look put-together that will never go out of style!

2. Something Neutral

Neutrals are universally flattering and timeless, and they ensure that everyone will look at how great you look and not at your outfit! You will be the star of the photos! Neutrals include black, white, grey, tan, navy, and every shade in between. There’s nothing as classic as a cool neutral!

3. Something Printed

Some of our grooms decide to show off their stylish side with a printed suit! They’re both fun and adventurous and we love getting insight into our groom’s personality. As long as the outfit doesn’t overwhelm you or your bride, we can’t wait to see what you come to the session with!

4. Something Layered

Layers are a great way to add interest and dimension to an outfit! Some people aren’t big on colour, but adding layers of textures can easily elevate your outfit and make you look like a million bucks!

Nicole and Julian had a gorgeous downtown Toronto engagement that really shows off why I love my job and my city! Even in a place as urban as Toronto, there are still pockets of soft romance to be found, photographed, and memorialized for the decades to come! This balance between modern and charming is what makes Toronto such a unique place.

Two people so madly in love you can see it in every glance.

Nicole and Julian first found me through Nicole’s sister, Steph, whose maternity session I photographed last autumn. I absolutely loved working with Steph and her husband Alec, so I knew Nicole and Julian would be incredible as well. These two are so sweet and playful! The session quickly felt like a pseudo-date that showed off how obsessed with each other they are! It’s always such a special honour to see two people so madly in love you can see it in every glance.

Nicole and Julian’s engagement session had us exploring so many beautiful locations in Toronto. We traipsed all over the financial district, from the Novotel Hotel to the facade of the Dominion Public building. Even though it was mid-October, the sun was high and the wind warm. We even found some gorgeous spring-time florals to add a touch of whimsy to the session. With Toronto’s iconic settings as backdrops, this was a quintessential Canadian session that will forever remind Nicole and Julian of the city where they fell in love!

Nicole and Julian, thank you so much for trusting me to document this amazing step in your relationship! You guys are so full of love for each other; it was such a joy to photograph you! As you anticipate your wedding, I hope these photos will continually remind you of why you fell in love! Can’t wait to photograph you guys again in just a few short weeks!
