I had quite recently photographed Erynn and Saro’s engagement session so it was great to shoot their wedding so quickly afterwards.  Sometimes I might wait a year or so before I shoot a wedding after an engagement shoot.  An interesting side note for this wedding.  One of Saro’s groomsmen is also a friend of mine and a wedding photographer himself.  We had worked together a number of times, so in this case Mike was able to document some getting-ready action.  The wedding was in Toronto and it was a pretty hot day.  Thanks guys for having me photograph your wedding.  Here are some favourites from the day. Toronto 35mm film wedding photographerToronto wedding getting-ready photographyToronto wedding getting-ready photographyToronto wedding getting-ready photographyToronto wedding getting-ready photographyToronto wedding getting-ready photographyToronto wedding getting-ready photographyToronto wedding getting-ready photographyToronto wedding getting-ready photographyToronto wedding getting-ready photographyToronto wedding getting-ready photographersToronto wedding getting-ready photographersToronto wedding getting-ready photographersToronto wedding getting-ready photographersToronto wedding getting-ready photographersToronto Ceremony Wedding PhotographyToronto Ceremony Wedding PhotographyToronto Ceremony Wedding PhotographyToronto Ceremony Wedding PhotographyToronto Ceremony Wedding PhotographyToronto Ceremony Wedding PhotographyToronto Ceremony Wedding PhotographyWedding Kiss Toronto Ceremony PhotographyJust Married Toronto Ceremony Wedding PhotographyToronto Bridal Party Wedding PhotographyToronto Wedding photographerToronto Wedding photographersToronto Wedding photographer Contax G2 Kodak Ektar 100 35mm film The Find LabToronto Wedding photographyToronto Wedding photographyWedding Photographer in TorontoWedding Reception Toronto photographyWedding Reception Toronto photographyWedding Reception Toronto photographyReception Toronto wedding photographyReception Toronto wedding details photographyReception Toronto wedding details photographyReception Toronto wedding details photographyReception Cupcakes Toronto wedding details photographyReception Toronto wedding details photographyToronto Reception wedding photographerToronto Reception wedding photographerToronto Reception wedding photographerFirst Dance Toronto Wedding PhotographerToronto Reception wedding photographerToronto Reception wedding photographerToronto Reception wedding photographerDancing Wedding Photographer in TorontoDancing Wedding Photographer in TorontoDancing Wedding Photographer in TorontoDancing Wedding Photographer in TorontoDancing Wedding Photographer in TorontoDancing Wedding Photographer in TorontoDancing Wedding Photographer in TorontoWedding Dancing Toronto photographyWedding Dancing Toronto photographyToronto Reception wedding food photographyWedding Dancing Toronto photographyMike Swiegot Wedding Dancing Toronto photographyWedding Dancing Toronto photographyToronto Dancing wedding photographyToronto Dancing wedding photographyToronto Dancing wedding photographyToronto Dancing wedding photographyToronto Dancing wedding photographyToronto Dancing wedding photography 16x9Toronto Dancing wedding photography 16x9

A few months ago I ran a couples portrait session contest and the winners of that random draw were Tanya and Ramiro.  These guys have been married for a bunch of years but the joy, the flame, whatever you want to call it, is still bright as ever.  We decided to shoot at the Evergreen Brickworks park in Toronto.  Here are some photos from that day.Evergreen Brickworks Toronto Couples photographerToronto Evergreen Brickworks Couples PhotographerToronto Couples Brickworks photographyBlack and white couples Toronto Brickworks photographyCouples photographer in TorontoCouples photography in TorontoMarried Couples Toronto photographer at Evergreen Brickworks parkCouples Portrait photographer in TorontoToronto Couples photographer at Brickworks ParkPortrait photographer at Evergreen BrickworksToronto portrait photographer 16x9Toronto outdoor portrait photographerLove Couples Toronto PhotographerToronto photographer at Evergreen Brickworks parkFun Couples photographer in TorontoFun Toronto Couples PhotographerToronto Fun Couples photographyFilm Photographer in TorontoMedium Format Pentax 645n Couples Photographer in TorontoPortrait photographer in Toronto at train tracksToronto Film photographer

Louis contacted me to document a surprise proposal to his girlfriend, Yoon. We met at Old Mill Spa & Inn in the west side of Toronto and began by taking some photos.  He told Yoon that as it was their dating anniversary, they would have some photos and then have a nice dinner.  By the river Louis gave Yoon a card with some words written on it.  He then got down on his knee and proposed, catching Yoon off guard and definitely surprising her.  She said yes 🙂 Congratulations, guys.  Thanks for having me take your photos.

Most of these photos were taken with my Canon 5D Mark II digital camera with the Canon 24mm f1.4 & Canon 50mm f1.4 lenses.  I did manage to also shoot a 35mm roll on my Contax G2 using Kodak Portra 800 film.  Scanned by The Find Lab.  Here are some photos from that session.

I’ll just start off by saying Megan and Bojan rock. They are awesome.  Fun, down-to-Earth, super kind people they are. Weddings can be long sometimes and when you photograph for 14-16 hours it definitely helps when the couple is so great to work with. Makes my job 10x easier and so much more enjoyable.  But enough about them.  Lets talk about the rest of the day. We did our portraits in the Distillery District which is just east of downtown Toronto.  The day was very hot with a mix of sun and cloud. So halfway through our shoot Megan and Bojan stopped at an outdoor bar and we all had a drink and a nice little break. You can see in the photos below where they take a selfie after they made their drink order.  The Ceremony was held outside and its a lovely venue with reddish-brown bricks and hanging lights.  Afterwards the Reception was held at Archeo Restaurant. There were speeches, drinking and then dancing followed by more drinking.  A fantastic night.  Congratulations, once again, guys and thanks very much for having me.

Most of these photos were shot on my digital Canon 5D and 5D2 cameras.  I did shoot 2 rolls of Kodak Ektar 100 on my Contax G2 – 35mm film camera.  Thanks to The Find Lab for scanning those.  Here are some of my favourite photos from the day.  It is a long post so I do urge you to make yourself a coffee or pour yourself a beer.  You won’t regret it, I promise.  Cheers.Wedding Photographer in Toronto Kodak Ektar 100 Contax G2 The Find LabWedding Dress Details Toronto photographerRing Shot wedding photography in TorontoToronto Getting-Ready wedding photographyToronto Getting-Ready wedding photographyToronto Getting Ready wedding photographyToronto Photojournalistic wedding photographyToronto documentary wedding photographyToronto skyline wedding photography35mm film wedding photographer in Toronto at Distillery DistrictBride and her bridesmaids wedding photography in TorontoToronto Bridal Party wedding portrait at Distillery DistrictToronto Wedding photographerDistillery Toronto wedding photosWedding photos in Toronto by Paul KrolDistillery District Documentary wedding photographer in TorontoDistillery District Documentary wedding photography in TorontoToronto Distillery District Wedding photographerWedding Portrait in Toronto at Distillery districtWedding portrait photographer in TorontoToronto wedding portrait photographer at Distillery DistrictWindow wedding portrait in TorontoDistillery District truck wedding photographyToronto Distillery district creative wedding photographyContax G2 35mm film wedding photography in Toronto at Distillery DistrictTop Distillery District Toronto wedding photographyToronto Wedding Distillery District wedding picturesDistillery wedding photos in Toronto by Paul KrolWedding flowers at Reception in Toronto at Distillery DistrictDistillery District Toronto Bride walking down the aisle wedding photographyGroom waiting for Bride as she walks down the aisle in Toronto at Distillery DistrictBest Distillery District wedding venue in Toronto Archeo Restaurant by Paul KrolWedding Ceremony at Distillery District in Toronto Archeo RestaurantCeremony wedding Toronto photographyCeremony Toronto wedding photographer at Distillery DistrictToronto Ceremony wedding photography at Distillery DistrictFirst Kiss Distillery District Ceremony wedding Toronto photographyJust Married wedding couple photography at Distillery District in TorontoToronto Documentary Wedding photosToronto Documentary Wedding picturesToronto Documentary Wedding photographyToronto Distillery District Cocktail Hour wedding photosDistillery District Cocktail Hour wedding photography in Toronto Archeo RestaurantCocktail Hour Distillery District Toronto wedding photographyCocktail hour wedding coverage at Distillery District in TorontoCocktail hour wedding coverage at Distillery District in TorontoArcheo Restaurant in Toronto wedding photographerCupcakes and bouquet wedding details Toronto photographerBride and Groom entrance at Archeo Restaurant Toronto wedding photographerToronto wedding portraitsBride and Groom speech at Archeo Restaurant in Toronto in Distillery DistrictB&G speech Toronto wedding photographerArcheo Restaurant Cheers wedding coverage clinking glasses champagneToronto wedding Bride and Groom speech photographyFirst Dance wedding Photography in Toronto at Archeo Restaurant in Distillery DistrictCheers wedding drinking shots toronto photographerDrinking shots toronto wedding photographyBest Toronto party wedding photography at Archeo Restaurant in Distillery DistrictToronto wedding dancing photographer at Archeo restaurantWedding dancing photography at Archeo restaurant in TorontoToronto wedding dancing photographer at Archeo restaurantToronto Reception wedding photography at Archeo Restaurant in Distillery DistrictToronto wedding dancing photography at Archeo restaurantToronto Reception wedding photographer at Archeo Restaurant in Distillery DistrictArcheo Restaurant Toronto wedding dancing photographerToronto Reception wedding photography at Archeo Restaurant in Distillery DistrictToronto wedding dancing photographer at Archeo restaurantToronto Reception wedding photography at Archeo Restaurant in Distillery DistrictToronto wedding dancing photography at Archeo restaurantToronto Creative Reception wedding photography at Archeo Restaurant in Distillery DistrictDistillery District Reception wedding photography at Archeo Restaurant in TorontoToronto Archeo Restaurant Reception wedding photographyDistillery District Reception wedding photography at Archeo Restaurant in TorontoDistillery District Reception wedding photography at Archeo Restaurant in TorontoBest Distillery District Reception wedding photographer at Archeo Restaurant in Toronto

Each and every Baptism that I document is special.  This Ceremony perhaps was even more so as the father and son were both Baptized.  This event was held at a Macedonian Orthodox Church just west of Toronto.  Here are some photos from the day.Macedonian Orthodox Church in Toronto Baptism photographyMacedonian Orthodox Church in Toronto Baptism photographyMacedonian Orthodox Church in Toronto Baptism photographyMacedonian Orthodox Church in Toronto Baptism photographerMacedonian Orthodox Church in Toronto Baptism photographerMacedonian Orthodox Church in Toronto Baptism photographersToronto Macedonian Orthodox Church Baptism PhotographerOrthodox Baptism Photographer in TorontoToronto Macedonian Orthodox Church Baptism PhotographyMacedonian Orthodox Baptism photographer in TorontoOrthodox Baptism Photography in TorontoMacedonian Orthodox Baptism photographer in TorontoToronto Orthodox Baptism photographerToronto Macedonian Orthodox Church Baptism PhotographersToronto Macedonian Orthodox Church Baptism PhotographerMacedonian Orthodox Baptism photographer in TorontoOrthodox Baptism Photography in TorontoToronto Macedonian Orthodox Church Baptism PhotographerOrthodox Baptism Photography in TorontoToronto Orthodox Baptism photographyToronto Macedonian Orthodox Church Baptism PhotographerMacedonian Orthodox Baptism photography in TorontoToronto Macedonian Orthodox Church Baptism PhotographyToronto Orthodox Baptism photographyMacedonian Orthodox Baptism photographer in TorontoToronto Macedonian Orthodox Church Baptism PhotographersToronto Macedonian Orthodox Church Baptism PhotographyToronto Macedonian Orthodox Church Baptism PhotographerMacedonian Orthodox Baptism photography in TorontoOrthodox Baptism Photographer in TorontoOrthodox Baptism Photographer in TorontoToronto Orthodox Baptism photographerToronto Macedonian Orthodox Church Baptism PhotographersMacedonian Orthodox Baptism photography in TorontoToronto Orthodox Baptism photography
