Congratulations to April and Eric who were wed at the elegant Design Exchange in downtown Toronto last Saturday, October 9! After meeting the couple several times prior to their big day, I could see something special in April and Eric's relationship so I had no doubt that their wedding would be one to remember. This was also the second wedding we shot with Michael B who is fabulous photographer and brings another dimension to our images. The day started out around 1pm on the 4th floor of the old Toronto Stock Exchange where April and her bridesmaids were getting ready. Lots of energy and music happening up there and the girls seemed quite lively. We also shot the groomsmen preparing down the hall and then got ready for April and Eric's first look at each other prior to their vows. It was a magical moment and the excitement and love was so thick that you could cut it (which I didn't, but might have if I had a knife with me).
Then, we enjoyed a brief romp around the downtown area with April and Eric where we found lots of quiet areas and used the lines and reflections of amazing architecture to add a lot of dynamism to each image. It was quite cold outside, so we ended up in the PATH under the city which really complimented the images from above ground.
After our family formals and pictures with the groomsmen and bridesmaids, it was just about time for the ceremony which was on the main floor of the DX. Visiting the venue the week before, Michael and I decided to set up some external lights to add punch and edge lighting when photographing the ceremony and reception so we were well prepared to capture all the important moments that truly define wedding photography. Then it was on to the party and the awesome music provided by a wicked band that rocked the house, God Made Me Funky.
April and Eric's wedding was classy, modern and fun and really expressed every reason why I love being a wedding photographer. We wish them all the best in their new lives together and look forward to keeping in touch!
