Toronto Family Photography - Meet Baby Nathan! - North York, Ontario

It was so much fun hanging out with baby Nathan and his awesome parents last weekend. We met the family at their brand new home in Toronto and had lots of space to check out space including Nathan's decked out room, mom and dad's spacious bed and the beautiful pool in the backyard. Nathan was smiling and enjoying the entire session either having his own picture taken or letting mom and dad in for a few. He was so engaged with the camera that we had some extra time at the end to head out front for a short walk to have some fun in the sun. Thanks for having us and we can't wait to see Nathan again in the near future!

Toronto Wedding Photography - Caitlin & Francesca's Intimate Backyard Wedding - Toronto, Ontario

What more can we say about Caitlin and Francesca's intimate backyard wedding other than it was one of the most memorable weddings we've photographed in a long time. Having a wedding in your own backyard can be stressful enough and there are always lots of unforeseen scenarios that can happen to distract a couple from the highlights of their wedding day on top of thinking about unfavourable weather conditions, having lots of people in a small space, making sure there is enough food/drinks for the night, etc. However, when you surround yourself with such intense love and compassion from all your friends and family, there is nothing that can get in the way of making your wedding the most special day in your life. This was exactly the case last weekend when Caitlin and Francesca tied the knot in their beautifully decorated backyard that included so many small, yet meaningful details like embroidered backdrop hand-made by Caitlin, and the hankies for happy tears. 

There were also many surprises that were so fun to capture. Francesca serenading guests with a acoustic version of "In Your Eyes", Caitlin's daughter, Maddie, talking the guests through a few quiet moments of mindful meditation and a few sisters dressing up to perform a custom song about the brides. Once the party started and the DJ set the mood for a wild night, the night became a blur of dancing, singing, drinking, and love for the moment. It was hard to NOT take a picture of somebody smiling or hugging other guests, Sheena and both were made to feel like family and we truly appreciated being a part of this amazing night in Toronto. Thanks for having us and we can't wait to hear about all the details from the upcoming honeymoon! xo

Toronto Engagement Photography - Taryn & Aman - Scarborough Bluffs & Beaches

What a perfect day and setting for an amazing couple! Taryn and Aman's engagement session at Scarborough bluffs was such a great backdrop for capturing their love and excitement as their wedding day quickly approaches. If you don't know the bluffs well, it is a hidden gem that offers panoramic vistas, dense nature and fauna and holds a relatively obscure outdoor collection of ancient Toronto architectural artifacts called Guildwood Park. We started the session up top of the bluffs and tried to capture lots of different perspectives, colours and textures before heading to the park to check out the modern buildings and art. Of course, no engagement session is complete without some bubbly so Taryn and Aman made sure to bring a bottle on our adventure around the grounds. The day and lighting was so stunning that we made a final stop in our favorite neighbourhood, the Beaches, we made sure to hit the beach before saying our good byes. We had such a fun time working with Taryn and Aman and can't wait to be a part of your big day!!
