Grace and Eric Married. Arcadian Court Wedding

This is totally random but these wedding pics literally traveled with me around the world to Asia. I usually back up all my files on and off site… but didn’t get a chance to do the offsite since I had to hop on plane in the early am right after their wedding. So… second best thing, I figured I would carry them with me.

This was a wonderful wedding in so many ways. From Grace and Eric being such great peoples to capturing all the cool locations and little details that made this a gorgeous wedding. I loved that Eric wore his uniform to his wedding. This was stellar. I loved that Grace got ready wearing her custom-made Hui- Tang Jay’s jersey and of course she looked amazing in her dress. The morning started off with door games which is always fun for everyone. After the loving first reveal, we walked over to a location that Grace found for us to do their wedding party pics. The spot was gorgeous and the bonus part was that it was conveniently located.

After their perfect ceremony (ironically held at Grace Church on the Hill) we headed over to Arcadian Court. This was large wedding with a guest count of almost 400 people. It was super cool that Eric made the back drop for their head table and it was an even more memorable story since it was a team effort that went into hanging it. Their centre piece giveaways were pretty unique and special as it came from Kenya where Grace had recently visited.
I want to thank my friend Maurice for shooting this event with me. I especially want to thank both Eric and Grace for having me capture this beautiful day. Here are just a few pics I wanted to share with you as we edit the rest.

Wedding at Balzac’s Coffee – Nahid & Jay Married

This was a nice start to the Spring / Summer wedding season… being a smaller wedding that was held at Balzac’s Coffee in the Distillery District.  I met Nahid in the afternoon at the Grand hotel where she was getting ready. She was pretty much ready when I got there and she looked gorgeous as you’ll see in the pics.  I took off right after and met up with Jay to set him up for their first look – his reaction was awesome.

Doing the formals pics was fun… just the three if us using the space of the distillery for pics.. really calm and relaxing.  We got back to Balzac where the space was transformed to have their ceremony.  The ceremony was perfect and the great thing about having a smaller wedding is that it was such an intimate feel.

The evening had great food and speeches and personally I learned a great deal about both Jay and Nahid.   There’s a part 2 to this wedding that I’m excited to capture in July – a tiny bit bigger =) See you guys then and here are some pic from your wedding. Have a great weekend.

Nahid and Jay – The Family E-Session

Since my last post, we have been doing A LOT of travel for work both internationally and domestically. I have tons of cool shoots that I want to share.  Here’s the most recent lifestyle shoot of my friends Nahid and Jay.  Let me back track a bit.  I met Nahid and her wonderful son a few years back from a family shoot I did for them.  Loved the shoot and them… really good peoples. When she told me she was getting married this year and the details… I knew I wanted to shoot their wedding.   This was especially the case after I met Jay, these two are both such kind souls.  So I’m really happy I got to do this for my friends.

This was a fun shoot. I’m glad Nahid and Jay decided to get the boys involved…these kids are great.  We wandered around Steam Whistle brewery and worked our way around downtown before they all headed off to a special b day celebration up in the 360 restaurant at the CN Tower.  Thanks so much guys and here are some pics!
