91 Day Young!

I got an email from a friend of mine asking would I be interested in documenting a 91st birthday event for their grandmother.  How exciting was the first thing that came to mind and also what a landmark occasion. This would be would be an absolute honor was my response.  On this day, meeting their Grandmother, I can honestly say I have never met someone with such positive and great…something that I didn’t expect at all.  I hope when I reach that age I’ll continue to have the energy and positive attitude like her.  Thank you Jeanne and Chi-Yan for having me document this landmark occasion.

Melissa and James Lifestyle Shoot

Location – Distillery District

I’m totally not a morning person, but it’s all about the lighting in pictures so on days of shoots I am totally a morning person :)

James and Melissa are great in front of the camera (they begged to differ in the shoot). The only little obstacle we had was there was marathon that was running through downtown, nonetheless it didn’t stop us.  Looking forward to your wedding day!

Michael and Cheryl Lifestyle Session

Location – Downtown Toronto

I’ve known Michael for ages and the bond that kept our friendship close can be narrowed down to: My best friend Hank and his wife and VW’s!  It’s also crazy that I know Cheryl separately from Michael, as she was in my homeroom in high school.  So when I got the great opportunity to pitch for their wedding, it was such and honour.   Aside from our relationship, Michael and Cheryl are two dream clients for any photographer.  For their lifestyle shoot, they said “…anything you want Leon… you know what we like and we are totally not traditional”.   So, instead of doing the lifestyle shoot during the day, I decided to do an evening night session.  One other note… and this goes along with dream clients for any photographer is that their sense of style is incredible and they WORK the camera.  Did I mention that they work the camera?  Born models I say.

The Friday night was a blast and 3 hours flew by.   You guys are amazing.  So looking forward to the wedding.

Jen and Charles Wedding

Venue  - The Club at Bondhead

From their lifestyle session, both Jen and Charles were naturals in front of the camera.  So combining these two made one great looking couple and with the beautiful day and gorgeous venue = perfect pictures.  Time flew by and just looking around, you could tell that every single guest enjoyed themselves and most importantly the bride and groom.  Congrats Jen and Charles!!
