I always say that I have the best job ever. But really, I feel like I do. I get to spend my days documenting life, in all it’s craziness and beauty. I get to be apart of peoples families, share in some of the most intimate moments and celebrate both the good and sometimes not always good moments life has to offer. Photographing weddings is by far one of my favourite things. Being apart of one of the happiest days any two people can experience is pretty incredible. From beginning to end, we are there. From the moment the dress goes on, and sometimes till the last song is played, we are there…along for the ride, sharing in all the excitement, nerves and love a wedding day offers. You will often find us too, sniffling away behind our cameras as we watch with teary eyes some of the most beautiful moments unravel right before us. It’s precious, it’s beautiful, it’s uplifting, and I simply feel lucky to be able to document these moments and preserve some of these memories.
I fell in love with Linden and Villy from the moment we all met. Chatting over coffee at Starbucks to see if we were all a good fit was seamless. It’s so important to have time with your photographer before your big day, to get to know each other and really establish a relationship prior to your wedding. These two are salt of the earth. Two madly, deeply and happily in love individuals that I was fortunate to meet.
Their wedding day was beautiful. We spent the morning with the girls as they got ready, shooting all the little details that help tell the story of the day. From shoes, to rings, to dresses. The getting ready photos are often some of my favourites. Linden and Villy also decided to do a first look in their hotel room…a moment we always feel so fortunate to be apart of. Portraits were later shot at Evergreen Brickworks in Toronto with their reception taking place at The Grand Luxe Event Boutique.
Thank you to all the Brides and Grooms and to Linden and Villy for choosing us to share in their day. We hope you cherish these images for decades to come. xo
