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.
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.
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.
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.
