Wedding season is in full bloom! While it's a crazy time of year, I still have a ton of work I need to post on the blog. Today is a look at Laura + Dmitry's Toronto City Hall civil ceremony. Before they headed off to their lovely destination wedding, Laura + Dmitry decided to have a small intimate ceremony with their families present. While it was bit of a colder day, they were gracious in entertaining me to have them go out side to the observation deck of Toronto City Hall for some amazing photos.

The following week we met up again for a post-Wedding mini session at the University of Toronto (which is where the two met). I really do enjoy U of T, the landscape, the architecture, it really never gets old. While landmarks aren't known for sticking around for too long in this city, King's College maintains it's place and storied history. It makes for a fabulous backdrop!

I think that it's finally safe to say that spring is finally here! 

Springtime in Toronto is a great time of year! One of the great little activities to do in the city is to visit the Toronto Islands. This past weekend Jane + AJ decided to have their engagement session at Centreville. With fantastic weather, and a beautiful sunset, it was a great session!

Here's a few sneak peeks!

A wedding day is definitely a day filled with many emotions: excitement, joy, love, stress, anxiety, and even some sadness of those who are no long with you to celebrate your day. It truly is a rollercoaster, but at the end of the day, happiness prevails. 

With Ndija + Matt's wedding, I truly believe I was at one of the happiest weddings I've ever been to. I don't believe there was a moment in the entire day where Matthew wasn't grinning from ear to ear. Ndija was simply glowing and an absolute stunner. Throughout our time at Edwards Gardens (Toronto Botanical Gardens now, but it'll always be Edwards Gardens to me!) they were laughing, smiling, and having an fun with the whole experience.

At the reception, man what a scene!! I'm usually the type who bounces along to the music, nodding my head and singing along. But with the 90's throwback setlist of some old school hip-hop, I was seriously grooving! 

One of my personal highlights of the days was during the ceremony. One of my favourite photos to get is immediately after the bride is revealed during the processional, I quickly turn back at the groom to get is reaction of seeing his bride. Sure enough.. there was Matt, with that huge grin and he said out loud: "Aw man....wow!"

 Toronto Wedding Photography | Peter + Joanne | Engagement

Hockey season begins tonight, and like most people from Toronto, I'm a Maple Leafs fan (although at the end of every season, I tend to ask myself why). I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to feature Joanne + Peter's Maple Leaf-themed engagement session from earlier this year.
Joanne + Peter are good friends of mine, and when they first got engaged they mentioned that they both wanted to do something fun that really showed who they are. So when they told me they rented some ice and wanted to do photos in their jerseys, I was thrilled. 

As a special bonus, once we headed out of the rink, we happened across a local carnival just around the corner. A quick ride on the scrambler, some whack-a-mole, and cotton candy made for the perfect ending to a fantastic day.

Joanne+Peter's big wedding day is happening next week and I just want to wish them an early congrats and I'm looking forward to having a great time!
