Scarborough Bluffs Engagement Photographer: Katie + David

This photo session had a little extra meaning to me.  The reason is that David is my brother.  He also hates to have his photo taken.  His fiancé, Katie, did a great job of getting him on board.  In the end this was one of my favourite photography sessions to ever shoot.  You can’t go wrong with beautiful scenery, fantastic  weather and a couple on board with your vision and wanting to create great images together.  My parents used to take the whole family to these same Bluffs when we were children.  Its in Toronto, just a little east and at the Southern point.  It was nice to revisit a place that had a few memories.   As usual, most of this session was shot with my Canon 5D2 digital camera and I also shot a roll and a half of Kodak Portra 400 film on my Pentax 645n medium format camera.  I love my digital camera(s) as I’ve used them on so many sessions, but the film camera just resonates with me as the results it creates are tremendous.  It definitely has a solid place in my camera bag.   Katie and Dave are getting married in Mexico in October, so i’m very much looking forward to that.  In the meantime, here are some photos from this session.

Toronto Wedding Photographer at Parkwood Estate : Paulina and Scott

Paulina and Scott were married at the elegant Parkwood Estate venue in Oshawa on a rainy day in July.  The rain started in the early afternoon, during the getting ready photos.  It did not stop for the rest of the day.  It literally rained the entire time.  I actually had to throw out my black dress shoes a couple of days after as they were ‘kaput’.  I was happy that it was overcast though:-)Paulina and Scott accepted the rain and made the best of it.  Every photo you see below outdoors was taken with either moderate rainfall or it was pouring and the couple had no choice but to use umbrellas.  Paulina’s dress was literally soaked.  The Reception was very lively and full of laughs, especially for the alleged letter that Rob Ford wrote.  Around 7pm I told them, “Listen, its overcast and gonna get dark soon, what you say we go out for 15 more minutes of photos!?”.  They promptly grabbed their umbrellas and we went out in the downpour and created more images.  Gotta love em’! Here are some images from that day.

Toronto Baptism Photographer at Saint Nicholas Ukrainian Catholic Church – Jeremy

It was a very hot and humid afternoon in Toronto on the day Jeremy decided to have his Baptism.  It was at the beautiful Saint Nicholas Ukrainian Catholic Church located near Queen St. W and Bathurst.  Fun fact :  the Church scenes in the movie “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” were shot here.  The family is Ukrainian and it was great to see them wearing traditional clothing.  To me, photographically speaking, that always seems to add a little something more to the Ceremony.  Here are some pictures of Jeremy getting baptized.

Candid moments

Who doesn’t love a black & white montage?  I recently shot a surprise wedding dinner for Michel and his partner at an Italian restaurant in downtown Toronto.  A few candid moments from that night.
