Happy Anniversary to Elsie + Jeff
Social media can be a double edged sword.
There's all the terrible aspects of it (the hacks, the curating, the online bullying) but it also allows a connection with people that I think would be difficult any other way. It was through an Instagram post that I was reminded that Elsie + Jeff, one of my all time favourite couples, are celebrating their 6 year anniversary!
Elsie + Jeff had a fantastic wedding way back in 2012 at the Eglinton Grand event space in midtown Toronto with a wedding ceremony at the always stunning Trinity Chapel on the University of Toronto grounds.
A lot of photographers hate looking back at the older work.
Am I a better photographer than I was in 2012? Probably, but it doesn't mean I'm not still proud of the pictures I've created over the years for my wedding clients. And sure, there can be some cringeworthy stuff in there as we all succumb to certain fads, processing styles and technical limitations with the older cameras. And of course the most glaring thing will always be how much you've grown and learned as a photographer over the years.
But it can also be a lot of fun looking back at these images and seeing the joy in their faces and the great moments. Here are a couple of my favourite images from their Eglinton Grand wedding.
Also check back soon for a family session with Elsie + Jeff's beautiful family!
Happy anniversary you guys!
