Peggy and Ross’s wedding at Our Lady of Perpetual Help was a beautifully traditional celebration to begin their marriage. But Peggy and Ross also made their wedding their own with sweet moments, personal details, and striking architecture!

With an engagement session at Casa Loma–inspired by Kate and William–, Peggy and Ross are a couple who loves elegant but bold moments (something I love as well!). We were absolutely on the same page when we talked about having portraits taken outside their church. Peggy’s details began with a classically-neutral palette. Her cathedral veil and delicately-detailed dress set an elegant scene for Peggy’s blue shoes and red rose bouquet. What I also love is when grooms pay as much attention to their details! Ross’ gold and silver airplane cufflinks have become one of my absolute favourite details of all time.

Peggy and Ross are a couple who loves elegant but bold moments.

After their ceremony and a relaxed lunch of McDonald’s, we headed out for portraits at the Alexander Muir Gardens. Although there were a few other wedding parties taking portraits at the main architecture, we found secluded areas to begin Peggy and Ross’ portraits. Vine-covered stone walls, hedge gardens, and perfect lawns were the perfect romantic backdrop to document such comfortable love! Peggy and Ross’s patience was eventually rewarded and when the other wedding parties left, we had the main staircase all to ourselves!

The wedding day wrapped up with a casual tea ceremony and reception at Orient Bistro, where close family and friends celebrated over an 11-course Cantonese dinner.

Peggy and Ross, from the time that you shared you wanted a Kate and William-inspired engagement session, I knew your wedding day would be a joy to photograph, and I wasn’t disappointed! Thank you for trusting me with your big day.

Elissa and Geoff had their wedding at The Guild Inn Estate, and it was the epitome of a classic and elegant affair. Such a joy to photograph! Amanda from Open Sky Weddings planned and helped postpone their wedding multiple times before we were finally able to celebrate this summer. It was so worth the wait!

Elissa and her bridesmaids got ready at a gorgeous AirBnb in the Beaches and prepared for the day with simple yet elegant details. Elissa’s iconic bridal portraits will always be some of my favourites! After a traditional ceremony, the bride and groom and bridal party left for the Guild Inn Estate for more celebrating! Elissa and Geoff’s portraits at Guild Inn can only be described as epic. The beautiful light created such creamy skin tones and gorgeous halos.

Although Elissa and Geoff’s beagles, Jake and Oscar, couldn’t celebrate with them in person (like they did at their engagement), the party was brought by the drummers of Sooriana Group and guests danced long into the night. The evening truly was a night to remember and the first real wedding PARTY I’ve been to since the pandemic began!

Elissa and Geoff, your wedding will always be a particularly timeless and gorgeous one to me! Forever a favourite! You guys were so much fun, and I’m so glad you waited patiently to have the wedding of your dreams! I hope you love your images as much as I do, because I’m absolutely in love with all of them!

Kristine and Will’s wedding will forever be a favourite of mine! From their first inquiry message, they were fun, trusting, and kind, which is a wonderful setup for beautiful images! As we captured the day, every part was filled with meaning, shared with their closest friends and family, and very hot! But Kristine and Will were absolute troopers, and their images are classic and full of movement!

Ever since their engagement session, I knew Kristine and Will were a couple that loved to laugh! They constantly joked with each other, thoroughly enjoying the whole process. I also found out early on that they absolutely love their cats, Taro and Pudding. Getting pictures with them on their wedding day became an immediate—and adorable—priority!

…every part was filled with meaning…

For Kristine and Will’s first look, we went to the Toronto Carpet Factory, nestled in the heart of Liberty Village. The vine-covered masonry and elegant wrought-iron details were just too good to not include again later for additional portraits. Technically, Kristine and Will were already legally married, but decided to celebrate again with friends and family. Their ceremony and reception took place at Mildred’s Temple Kitchen, an eclectic restaurant with delicious food and an elegant atmosphere.

Kristine and Will, I don’t think I’ve ever had so much fun at a wedding! You are so wonderful and kind, and I have absolutely loved getting to know you both! Thank you for sharing your big day with me. I’m obsessing over your images and can’t wait to share the rest!

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!

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!

Christine and Kevin’s wedding was full of intimate moments and laughter. Having had their engagement session just a short month earlier, we experienced rain, heat, sun, and wind between both days. Through it all Christine and Kevin were full of joy and excitement, displaying their love for each other in every look.

Having met because Kevin’s roommate was friends with one of Christine’s good school friends, their relationship has been filled with several canoe trips in Algonquin, a romantic fall hike at Dundas peak in Hamilton, and a proposal at one of the doors of St. James Cathedral. It was a location they had scouted as a potential proposal spot for a friend some weeks earlier. Christine, aware that a proposal was imminent was wearing dresses every day and waiting for when she could “officially” start wedding planning.

It was obvious Christine and Kevin loved each other deeply

Christine and Kevin’s Wycliffe College wedding ceremony was both traditional and moving. Christine made her entrance through a staircase in the back of the hall. Walking down the aisle with her parents and met at the front by her maid of honour and Kevin’s best man, Christine shared many glances and smiles with Kevin throughout the ceremony. Through their family formals and couple portraits, they continued to enjoy every minute. Ultimately, Christine and Kevin’s wedding day was one that kept me smiling throughout it all as it was so obvious they loved each other deeply.

Christine and Kevin, thank you for sharing your day with me. From our conversations beforehand to your engagement session to your wedding, I’ve loved getting to know you both better and I’m so excited to be sharing more sneak peeks from your day here! I can’t wait to share the rest! Congratulations again!!

Christine and Kevin’s wedding was full of intimate moments and laughter. Having had their engagement session just a short month earlier, we experienced rain, heat, sun, and wind between both days. Through it all Christine and Kevin were full of joy and excitement, displaying their love for each other in every look.

Having met because Kevin’s roommate was friends with one of Christine’s good school friends, their relationship has been filled with several canoe trips in Algonquin, a romantic fall hike at Dundas peak in Hamilton, and a proposal at one of the doors of St. James Cathedral. It was a location they had scouted as a potential proposal spot for a friend some weeks earlier. Christine, aware that a proposal was imminent was wearing dresses every day and waiting for when she could “officially” start wedding planning.

It was obvious Christine and Kevin loved each other deeply

Christine and Kevin’s Wycliffe College wedding ceremony was both traditional and moving. Christine made her entrance through a staircase in the back of the hall. Walking down the aisle with her parents and met at the front by her maid of honour and Kevin’s best man, Christine shared many glances and smiles with Kevin throughout the ceremony. Through their family formals and couple portraits, they continued to enjoy every minute. Ultimately, Christine and Kevin’s wedding day was one that kept me smiling throughout it all as it was so obvious they loved each other deeply.

Christine and Kevin, thank you for sharing your day with me. From our conversations beforehand to your engagement session to your wedding, I’ve loved getting to know you both better and I’m so excited to be sharing more sneak peeks from your day here! I can’t wait to share the rest! Congratulations again!!

Marianne and Andrew were one of the few couples we had this year who had originally planned to get married in 2021! Although they did have to postpone by a few months, they were able to have a beautiful day that was reminiscent of the full and typical weddings we used to shoot all the time. And we’re so happy for them!

Their mid-September wedding fulfilled all our fall fantasies. Marianne chose every detail carefully. From red hypericum berries in her bouquet to the burgundy and gold colour story, the day was both cozy and elegant. Just like their engagement session, Marianne and Andrew’s wedding was filled with movement, laughter, and tender in-between moments.

Seeing Marianne with her grandmother brought tears to my eyes.

Between her ceremony and reception, Marianne took time to visit her grandmother, with whom she shares a special relationship. You may know that family is incredibly important to me, and if any of my couples share that they’d like to make time for a special moment with family, I will 1000% encourage it. Seeing Marianne with her grandmother brought tears to my eyes, and it may be my favourite part of her wedding day (and many parts of her wedding were so special)!

Throughout the day, Marianne and Andrew chose to reveal a special part of their relationship: their mutual love of video games! From the groomsmen’s boutonnieres to the reception table decor, odes to some of their favourite games were spread out to give their guests a peek into their relationship.

Marianne and Andrew, thank you for entrusting your beautiful day to me. I loved every moment. From your details, to your time with friends and family, everything was so intentional. I hope these images help you relive it many times in the years to come. Congratulations!

After over a year, we’re sharing Cynthia and Terry’s wedding! This lovely couple got married last summer and celebrated their anniversary with a gorgeous session last month! After capturing their reception a few weeks ago, we’re finally ready to share their entire wedding experience!

Cynthia and Terry’s wedding ceremony last year took place at a friend’s home. The gorgeous historical home had enough land to accommodate social distancing restrictions, allowing their closest family and friends to attend. A sweet-as-honey first look, tender glances during the ceremony, and joyful husband and wife portraits rounded out this dewy August wedding!

Cynthia and Terry’s wedding celebration continued this year with a reception and more amazing portraits! While their ceremony last August was threatened with rain, this year they had to contend with wind. But this only added to the romance of the day and showed off Cynthia’s gown (check out the images below)! With a change in venue, Cynthia and Terry also re-oriented some details, infusing a mature and suave style to their day! This second day of celebration also enabled them to have a tea ceremony, a sit-down dinner, and long-awaited speeches from loved ones. Finally capturing and memorializing these special moments was such a joy!

Cynthia and Terry, getting to photograph you last year was amazing! Being to do it two more times since then has only added to our excitement for you guys! We hope you love these images and they are a constant reminder of your first sweet year of marriage! Let them keep your joy at the forefront of your memories even amidst all the unconventional adjustments your wedding celebration went through! Congratulations again!

Welcome to the blog!

This is where we share recent weddings & sessions, as well as informative articles, wedding planning tips, and a little bit about my life!

When I'm not shooting beautiful people in beautiful places, you're most likely to find me reading, taking walks along the beach, or trying out new restaurants with my husband!



hi there!
