St.Isaac Jogues Church Wedding // Catherine + Vince ♥

I had the pleasure of working with Catherine + Vince on their wedding day. They are some of the sweetest people that I’ve ever met before! From day one, we connected and I’m so glad to call them my friends.

Catherine and Vince went to the same highschool and officially met at a friends house in 2008, but it wasn’t until a Jack and Jill in 2009, that the two of them connected again. Catherine remembers that Vince took her out on an awkward date with his family, for his dads birthday. In the new year of 2010, they were officially dating and you can call the rest history!

The ceremony was held at St.Isaac Jogues, surrounded by family and friends. When Catherine appeared in the aisle, with her parents on either arm, Vince teared up. It was touching and I will admit I teared up behind the camera. His smile was wide and loving and you could see how excited they were to finally embrace each other.

Their portraits were taken at Petticoat Creek. The trees and the bridge overlooking Lake Ontario, felt perfect for some quiet reflection and more intimate photos.  As soon as we finished their pictures and got in our cars, it started to pour! Talk about perfect timing!

The evening concluded with a huge reception at The Estate Banquet and Event Centre, in Toronto, where Catherine and her father, surprised guests with a choreographed dance. Friends and family sang, danced and celebrated.

Congrats Catherine and Vince and thank you for letting me capture that beautiful day. xo

A huge thank you to my second shooter Jeannette Breward, for assisting me on that hot day! xo

Bluffers Park Engagement Session // Diana + Chris ♥

They met in high school, when Diana drove to school in her mom’s Suburban. The car was on it’s last legs and started to smoke in the school parking lot. Chris saw the smoking car and walked over to check it out. He told Diana to bring the car over to the school shop and he would see if he could fix it. Nothing more became of this encounter, until years later, when Diana saw Chris at a friends house party. She recognized him as the guy that helped her with her mom’s smoking car and that’s what sparked up their conversation. She admitted that she wouldn’t have approached him, had she not recognized him. That night, she drove some friends home, as well as Chris. Her best friend and her boyfriend, told Chris he should ask Diana out, because they were both short! So he did! Chris asked Diana out and years later he admits that he saw a pretty girl in trouble. So here they are today, engaged! You could say the smoking Suburban brought them together. I suggested they have it at their wedding….

Diana and Chris met me for their engagement session at Bluffers Park, in Scarborough. We walked around the waterfront and explored the beach. It was great watching these two interact behind the camera. Chris would bring out these little smiles and laughs in Diana. He made her feel at ease and she did the same for him. The way he wrapped his arms around her and she cuddled in, was so natural and adoring. I love it when couples let go and be themselves, you really get to see the beauty and love that makes them work.

I feel grateful that I was able to capture these special moments. This is why I love what I do. Congrats Diana and Chris!
