Heirloom Wedding Photograph

I have an ongoing series I call Heirloom Wedding Photographs where my couples choose the one image from their wedding that means the most to them.   

Here is Emilie's pick...


My grand-papa and I always had a strong bond. I spent many summers when I was young in Chicoutimi with him and my grand-maman. It meant so much to me that he made the trip for our wedding in October, especially knowing he didn’t like to leave the comfort of his home in recent years. 

I still remember the emotion on his face from this moment, so happy and proud to see his eldest grand-daughter be married. I am so grateful Scott was there to capture it. What makes this picture even more special is that my grand-papa passed away almost 6 months to the day of our wedding. I will cherish this picture for the rest of my life and remember a man that brought so much joy and love to my life.

A year in review....

As we begin 2016 I thought it might be nice to take a look back at how great 2015 was!

I had a bunch of amazing couples and weddings at some of the best wedding venues in Toronto and Ontario including Fermenting Cellar, Hessenland Country Inn, Bruce Hotel, One King West, Liberty Grand, Waterloo Region Museum, One King West (again!) The Tannery, Copper Creek Golf Course, The Stirling Room, 99 Sudbury, Ancaster Mill, Federation Hall and WhistleBear Golf Course as well as weddings across ontario including Tobermory and Windsor.

Now, usually I do a slideshow for these year end posts but this year I thought I'd try something different and post 10 of my favourite images.  Wow... it was way tougher to pick 10 than I thought.   So many great moments from the year but I finally managed to whittle it down to my favourite 10 (in no particular order!)

99 Sudbury Wedding

Emilie + John

Emilie and John had an amazing autumn wedding at 99 Sudbury in Toronto!

Okay there was a brief moment during the day when it sucked for me.  I dropped some very expensive camera gear and it wound up in many more pieces than it should have been... but hey, that's what insurance and back up gear are for!

We started the day at the Gladstone Hotel in their amazing Tower Suite room!  The room is massive, over two levels and even has its own rooftop terrace which we used for Emilie + John's first look.   

Emilie and the bridesmaids makeup was done by Elite Beaty Makeup.  Once everyone was looking great and we had done the big reveal, we took a classic Rolls Royce limo to Liberty Village for some wedding portraits with the bridal party, families and the couple!  We finished up with a few more portraits at 99 Sudbury just before the wedding ceremony began.   

The wedding ceremony and reception were great but the party afterwards was amazing... great group of friends and family partying the night away!  

Some of my favourite pictures are posted above and the full wedding slideshow is below.

Evelyn + Wayne


Evelyn + Wayne had an amazing fall wedding at 99 Sudbury, which is a really cool, open concept wedding venue in downtown Toronto.  
A huge thank you to Ben Benvie for doing an amazing job second shooting that day!
Evelyn & Wayne are both chefs who moved from BC to Toronto two months before their wedding to begin working on opening their first restaurant... talk about busy.  They had an amazing group of friends and family from all over... Hong Kong, California, Seattle.
Of course with these two being chefs the food that night was amazing but the real showstopper was the cake.  Hands down the coolest  wedding cake I've ever seen.  It designed as a stack of their favourite cookbooks but the covers and images were all photos on the icing or edible paper or something.   Either way, it was cool.
