Janessa + Scott at Nith Ridge Estate
Veronica is a past bride of mine who contacted me for some environmental shots to be used for Healthoholics, a Kitchener holistic health & nutrition store that she runs with her family. The have everything from vitamins, supplements, orgainic foods and all natural products for cleaning, beauty and even maternity and baby supplies! Of course, there's also a full clinic in the store which offers everything from nutritional planning to massage therapy.
We actually started the shoot around the corner from my house, borrowing a beautifully remodelled kitchen of one of Veronica's classmates. From there, we headed off to the Healthaholics store in Kitchener and then to Dutchies fresh Market for some photographs in the produce aisle... so nice of them to let us use the store!
Look for some of these pictures to be on Kitchener Transit buses in the near future!
Renee + Ian's Fermenting Cellar Wedding
Love this image from Rennee + Ian's Fermenting Cellar wedding last night in Toronto for a lot of reasons but one of them is the fact that I took it with my new Leica M9 :)
Check back in a couple weeks to see more of this amazing wedding!
Michelle + Nick
Michelle + Nick had a fabulous winter wedding back at the Ancaster Old Mill back in February.
Yes it was cold. :)
Yes, we still got great pictures. :)
We started off at the salon owned by Michelle's childhood friend and then I headed off to hang out with the boys as they got ready.
They had a first look out in the snow, very cool! First looks can be such a great part of your wedding day. They can help with an awkward schedule (or an early sunset in this case) and also take a lot of the anxiety out of seeing your spouse for the first time at the ceremony.
Speaking of ceremonies, they had a beautiful Jewish wedding ceremony in the Governer's Room of the Ancaster Old Mill. And following some family pictures it was up to the Falls Room for a great reception!
You can check out some of my favourite pictures from this Ancaster Old Mill wedding in the gallery up top and their full wedding slideshow down below!
Excited to announce that I'm now a featured vendor on The Wedding Ring! The Wedding Ring is one of Southern Ontario's biggest wedding blogs covering Toronto, Kitchener-Waterloo, London and all points in between. I actually had to choose which are I was listed in since I photograph most of my weddings in Toronto but live in the Kitchener-Waterloo area... in the end, I went with Kitchener-Waterloo. It's always nice to photograph a few more weddings close to home!

Vicky + Yuri
Had a great time with Vicky and Yuri for their winter engagement session! These two are getting married this August.
Alex + Dan
Another great wedding from 2013!
Alex and Dan were married back in February in an amazing ceremony and reception at the Eglinton Grand in midtown Toronto! The Eglinton is one of my absolute favourite wedding venues... I'm a huge movie buff so I love the character of this old movie palace. I even saw Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade there when I was a kid!
After getting ready, everyone met at the Eglinton for a traditional Chinese tea ceremony... which produced one of my favourite wedding images of all time! Then we headed downstairs for the western wedding ceremony and reception.

A huge thank you to my good friend Aron Goss for doing an amazing job second shooting this wedding!
Grace + Christian
Guys... do not let your better half's read this post. No matter what, you're going to end up looking like a chump compared to Christian.
As their 10 year wedding anniversary approached, Grace & Christian wanted to celebrate with their friends and family. Since the first time around they only had a small city hall wedding this time they went all out... fancy ceremony and reception at St Lawrence Hall, bridal party and pictures out at the Guild inn, and even a photographer :).
I don't think Christian said no to a single thing his wife asked for on this big day... he gave her the day she wanted and deserved those 10 years ago!
Not only did I capture some great pictures for them, I also came away with one of the best wedding stories! As the guys were leaving the hotel in the elevator, the best man went to check on the rings and it fell out of the box... and promptly rolled across the elevator and dropped down the gap into the elevator shaft. After a small panic attack, maintenance was called and the ring was found!
I want to give a big shout out to Aron Goss who was my second photographer and did an amazing job.
