Andrea & Bill – Wedding at Copper Creek Golf Club

Andrea & Bill – Wedding at Copper Creek Golf Club

We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day for Andrea & Bill’s romantic wedding at Copper Creek Golf Club in Kleinburg, ON. We started with the guys for some cool shots at the club: A little bit of a rivalry between the groomsmen: I love this unscripted moment of the flowergirl checking to see who might be coming to the bride’s house next: I love playing with different colour temperatures of light to get some unique looks.  LOL, I remember getting so excited when I was checking these on the camera: Bill seeing his beautiful bride for the first time: Gorgeous day for an outdoor ceremony: Haha, this sequence makes me laugh: Being able to shoot in the late afternoon produces some stunning images: I had a chance to grab a few shots with my infrared camera for a change:   I hope you two had a wonderful honeymoon!  I can’t wait for you to see the rest of the images and to start working on your album. Cheers,...

Maryse & Evan – Park Hyatt Toronto Wedding

Maryse & Evan – Park Hyatt Toronto Wedding

I’m excited share some images from the elegant winter wedding of Maryse and Evan. We started out at the ritzy Park Hyatt in downtown Toronto:   I love creating dramatic and fashionable portraits, but beautiful unscripted moments like these are just as important to capture:   Of course, we always get the typical “looking at the camera shots” with the families but I almost always prefer the ones where they’re interacting with each other to get much more honest and emotive expressions:   Before the ceremony (and before the early sunset), we got some great shots in the gorgeous courtyard at the Chapel of Trinity College on the University of Toronto campus.   The chapel itself had extremely low light (for you photo-buffs, this shot was taken at maxed-out settings of ISO 6400, f/2.8 and 1/50 sec at 90mm) but we managed to get some great shots of the processional none-the-less.  I love all the expressions in this shot and greatly appreciated the fact that the guests were actually watching the bride and her dad rather than trying to film it with their iPads or washing out the subjects with their camera’s bright red focus-assist beams. 😉   Did I say low light?  This shot was almost entirely lit by one tiny candle.   Once nice thing about low-light churches is that you can light the whole place with a single on-camera bounce flash:   Back to the Park Hyatt for the reception in the Roof Salon with a spectacular view of the Toronto skyline:   I absolutely love bumping into past clients and their wonderful families at weddings (though I never seem to have enough time to catch up with them) and this one had two past couples!  It was great to see you all again!   Tell me again how you’re not photogenic? 😉  You both looked fantastic and it was such a pleasure working with you again (speaking of which…engagement photos coming to the blog soon). I hope you both had a wonderful day and an amazing honeymoon! Cheers,...

Brittany & Kyle – Country Fall Wedding at Ruthven Park

Wow, I’ve really gotten behind on my blogging this year, but now that the new website is almost complete, I’m finally starting getting caught up. Without further ado, I’m thrilled to share some favourites from a beautiful fall wedding in Cayuga, ON:   We couldn’t have asked for more perfect weather for a mid-October wedding!  The photogenic Ruthven park, just north of Cayuga, made for a wonderfully scenic venue for their relaxed rustic wedding in the country!   Timing is everything when it comes to candids: Thanks for allowing us to be a part of your big day.  Elaine and I had a fantastic time working with you and I can’t wait for you to see the rest of the photos!

Moroney Family & Baby Session

Moroney Family & Baby Session

I can’t tell you what a privilege it has been to photograph the milestones of the Moroney family over the past 7 years.  I shot their wedding back in 2006 and was there for the pregnancy and birth of their first baby.  And now I’m back for the fourth time to capture their beautiful new addition to the family! Here’s one from the wedding back in 2006… …so we set up a shot with a similar theme for the first maternity session: …And now to continue the theme with the whole family: It was such a pleasure to work with you guys again and to meet the latest member of the family!  I hope to see you again soon for the next big family milestone! Cheers,...
