Toronto Beaches Engagement Pictures

Cindy + Enrico

Had a great evening hanging out with Cindy + Enrico for their engagement pictures in Toronto.

They turned me on to what might be new favourite location in Toronto for pictures, the R.C. Harris Water Treatment plant in the Beaches neighbourhood in Toronto's east end.  It has waterfront, beaches, classic architecture, open spaces...  It's really great!

Cindy and Enrico (both former actors) were absolute naturals in front of the camera to the point that sometimes they seemed to forget I was even there and were having fun in their own little world.  

I'm super excited to be photographing their wedding in a couple weeks at Archeo in the Distillery District in Toronto. 

Evergreen BrickWorks Engagement

Helen + Nelson

Here are Helen and Nelson's engagement pictures from this summer at the Evergreen Brickworks in Toronto!  It's a such a great spot for pictures with a great mix of industrial and natural surroundings.

These two are getting married next year at the refinished & rebuilt Guild Inn Estate in the east end of Toronto!  It should be a great wedding and I'm really looking forward to seeing the new place.

Toronto Restaurant Engagement

Haley + Stephen

Here is one of my favourite engagement sessions from last fall featuring Haley + Stephen!

These two own an amazing restaurant in Toronto called 'The White Brick Kitchen' that has been featured on You Gotta Eat Here!  We decided what better place to do some engagement photographs than the place that is such a huge part of their lives (they spend a LOT of time there...).  We actually wound up doing the entire engagement session at the restaurant.

You can see Haley + Stephen's autumn wedding at the Ancaster Mill here!

Toronto Waterfront Engagement

Andrea + Chris

Spent an amazing evening in Toronto with Andrea + Chris for their engagement session along the Toronto waterfront.   We hit some great locations along Queens Quay, Polson Pier and the Music Gardens.

Even though they live in Victoria, Andrea + Chris have an amazing wedding planned for this summer at One King West... one of the premier Toronto wedding venues.

Check back to the blog in September to see some of their wedding photographs!

York University Engagement Pictures

Jennifer + Alex

I met up with Jennifer and Alex at York University's Keele Campus for some engagement pictures.

It's actually the place where they first met, during frosh week their first year of university.  I love when we do engagement pictures in a place that has connection and meaning to a couple.

I also love photographing at universities since they almost always have such a great variety architectural styles and open spaces... plus, if you do it on a Sunday night they're pretty much a ghost town.

Jennifer and Alex are getting married this summer at the Peel Art Gallery & Museum Archives and the Mississauga Convention Centre.

Toronto Engagement Photography

Carolin + Anobel

Carolin + Anobel are actually getting married later this year in San Jose, California (really, really, really wish I could shoot their wedding!) but asked me to help out with some engagement pictures here in Toronto.  

We started out at the University of Toronto, where Carolin went to school.  I love the U of T campus as it has such  great mix of old and new architecture as well as lots of little nooks and crannies you can shoot in that have amazing light.  

From there we headed down to the Distillery District where they had one of their fist dates (It was a little warmer this time, Anobel's first experience with Canada was the Polar Vortex!).

We finished off the night with a few pictures out at Polson Pier which has such an amazing view of the downtown Toronto skyline.

 

Toronto Engagement Portraits

Sasha + James

Sasha + James are getting married next month up in the Muskoka's at the stunning JW Marriot Rosseau resort... it's going to be an amazing wedding, I can't wait!

For their engagement session we decided to start downtown and then head off to the University of Toronto where they met while still in school.   We hit a lot of their favourite spots including the Tim Hortons where they used to study, pictures in front of James' old dorm room and the Victoria College.
