Angela & Brad - Wedding

An unseasonably warm winter's day set the stage nicely for what was to be a beautiful intimate wedding for Angela and Brad at the Irwin Inn on Stoney Lake near Peterborough ON.

As I usually do while the girls were getting ready, I took some time to get a few detail shots of the dress, jewelry and Angela's bouquet:


Applying the finishing touches before the walk down the aisle:




I love watching the bride and groom during the signing of the registry. There's always some great moments between the newly married couple!:


I couldn't decide which version of this pic I liked the best...


This second example shows the different look we can get when using different lighting techniques for the exact same scene:


Back to the suite for some intimate portraits of the bride and groom:






Angela came prepared for the snow with some cool Mukluks:












It wasn't long before Angela and Brad really started to have some fun with it and I think it shows in the following photos:






Sometimes the outtakes between the posed photos can be the best ones:


To the happy couple: Thanks for allowing us to be a part of your special day and I can't wait for you to see the rest of the photos!

Cheers,

Michael

Michelle & Mike - Wedding

It was a beautiful sunny fall morning as we made our way out to see our fellow Miltonites, Michelle & Mike.





The ceremony took place at the modern and beautiful Holy Family Catholic Church in Toronto.


I love this moment with Michelle's brother-in-law getting ready to walk her down the aisle:






Mike celebrating the fact that the hard work is now over!


Another touching moment between Al and Michelle after the ceremony:




We then made our way to the Mississauga Civic Centre (City Hall) for the formals.


We managed to get some great shots despite the fact that nearly the entire place was torn up and fenced off due to construction!














A dramatic grand entrance as they made their way into the hall at the Mississauga Convention Centre!


I hope you guys had a great day!

Cheers,

Michael

Jennifer & John - Wedding

It's no wonder why Jennifer & John chose Graydon Hall Manor for the entirety of their wedding festivities - what a beautiful place!

We met up with the guys in the morning and got this cool shot of John as they cracked open their first bottle:


Jennifer had an elegant bridal suite to get ready in:




I loved the birdcage veil - very chic.


I find takes a lot of the tension out of the day when the couple meets before the ceremony (it also gives us extra some for some great shots):








A nice moment between Jennifer and her bridesmaids in between poses:




Sometimes the best shots are taken in the most unlikely of places:


What a dramatic "walk down the aisle" as Jennifer and her Dad made their way from the mansion and across the gardens:


The decor was expertly coordinated and the cake even matched the table settings an invitations:






The library offered the perfect setting for this shot of John with his groomsmen and "Best Woman":


Later in the evening we popped outside and got some awesome GQ-worthy shots of the guys (and girl) with their cigars:




There were so many great spots at Graydon Hall that I just had to end the evening with a few more portraits of the happy couple:




Thanks for making us a part of your day and I can't wait for you to see the rest of the photos!

Cheers,

Michael
