I took engagement photos for Pam and Paul in a little historic town called Unionville which is a suburban village of Markham, just east of Toronto. This place was founded in 1794 and does have that ‘small-town’ charm. Lots of bars/restaurants to enjoy here as you walk down the main street. Had a lot of fun documenting this couple at this location. Here are some favourite photos from this session.
I had a fabulous time documenting Krystyna and Kyle’s wedding at the gorgeous Parkwood Estate venue in Oshawa. This place is beautiful and has both the Ceremony and Reception (outdoors under a tent) on the grounds, and its just 45min east of Toronto. I had previously taken this couples engagement photos at Edwards Gardens. Kyle got ready by first playing a 1st-person shooting video game with his groomsmen. Get some stress out, I suppose. This was followed by some beers and cigars. The ladies were far less complex as just a little wine was part of their getting-ready agenda. This venue is epic for photos and definitely a fantastic wedding location. Here are some of my favourite photos from the day. There are quite a few so pour yourself a scotch or perhaps some coffee or tea.
I shot most of these with my Canon 5D/5D2 digital combo and also used my 35mm film Contax G2 camera. I shot two rolls of Kodak Ektar 100 film and some of those photos are included below as well. Scanned by The Find Lab.
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.
