Downtown Core Toronto Engagement Photography

Alex and Mitch are a super fun, smart, and down-to-earth couple. I absolutely enjoyed being around them during this engagement photo shoot! We wandered around the downtown core searching for beautiful light and interesting locations and looking at the photos I think I can say we succeeded. Thank you Alex and Mitch for making my job so easy and fun, I am looking forward to your wedding tomorrow! :)

Check out Abbey and John’s winning engagement story here:

“My now fiancé and I have known each other for many years. Once we started dating we both knew very quickly we wanted to get married. Due to both our jobs we had to date long distance for over a year. Him in Toronto and myself in Sudbury. Due to family situations we had to plan our wedding date quite in advance, in fact it was set before our engagement. So for fun I drove from Sudbury to Toronto to try on wedding dresses with some family and friends. I had the whole day planned and wasn’t expecting what happened! At the first store I fell in love with a dress way beyond my budget. We decided to call it a day and leave. When I got to my car I found an anonymous note sending me to another bridal store with better deals. Excited and slightly confused, my friends and I drove to the next store. Not only did I find my wedding dress there but as I was paying I received an envelope with a note that said “welcome to the amazing race, where all your dreams may come true”. Attached was a gift card and the address for Sherway Gardens mall. The clue instructed me to go pick myself out an outfit and be on the lookout for my next clue. After picking out my outfit, I was walking in the mall and a lady bumped into me, dropping a small package and running off. Inside the package was a Fossil watch I had been wanting for a while. And of course inside the watch box was another clue. This one sent me to a salon to get a manicure. After my manicure I received my last clue with the address to a restaurant right on the lakeshore looking over the Toronto skyline. When we arrived and parked we walked towards the park where we could cross to go to the restaurant. Before we could cross music started playing really loud, Sparks Fly by Taylor Swift. All of a sudden everyone in the park began to dance. It was a flash mob, just for me. As the dance went on the music cut out, but all the dancers began just to sing aloud in the night air the final chorus to the song. As the dancers finished they formed two lines and from the middle of them walked by boyfriend. He proceeded to take my hands and tell me to look behind him; just as I did fireworks went off over the lake. Then he looked I to my eyes and told me how much he loved me and wanted to spend forever with me, and he got down on one knee and proposed. I of course said yes and turned around to all the dancers around us with sparklers and all my friends and family present. It was incredible and beyond my wildest dreams! I am incredibly blessed!!”

Evergreen Brick Works Wedding

Last month we had the pleasure of photographing Danielle and Allen’s gorgeous Evergreen Brick Works wedding. The day started with the groom and groomsmen taking the subway to Trinity College Chapel where the beautiful cathedral filled up with friends and loved ones. Danielle entered with her contagious smile, walking gracefully down the aisle meeting Allen.  After the ceremony everyone travelled to the Evergreen Brick Works, which was beautifully styled by the bride herself (with the help of her wonderful father). White lights blanketed the ceiling in this industrial brick exposed building, creating such an amazing atmosphere on one of the greatest nights of the summer. Looking at the two of them the whole night reaffirmed our belief in true love and we were so grateful to have been able to capture it.
