High Park Newlywed session

Jenny, John & I connected a year after they got married for their vow renewal as well as an adventurous portrait session exploring High Park in their wedding outfits! Such a great way to get portraits done because you don’t have the pressures or schedule of a wedding day so the vibes are much more relaxed!

Their nearly 14 year love story is the sweetest - they’re high school sweethearts who met in grade 8 and started dating in the second semester of grade 9. They shared their first kiss in the English Department's hallway (cue my melting heart). I love what Jenny wrote about John:

John has always been my rock. I think we bring out the best in each other. 
He is my best friend and has helped shoulder all of life's biggest challenges together with me. 
I'm incredibly grateful to be spending the rest of my life with him.

Below are photos from our adventure in High Park in downtown Toronto, starting with Runnymede Station where John used to walk Jenny to and from school every day. Enjoy!

 
 

Winter engagement photos at Lovt studio & Woodbine Beach

Shooting Toronto engagement sessions in the winter is so exciting - as a photographer I’m forced to think outside of the box with brainstorming locations because there’s only so much time that can be spent outdoors without freezing your butt off. Loved this shoot because we got the best of both worlds: adventuring outdoors balanced with a sweet indoor snuggle sesh. There are so many fab downtown Toronto locations but one of my absolute favs is Lovt studio in the east end.

I met up with Mark & Mae at Lovt studio recently for their own engagement photos and couldn’t have been more excited to hang out with them again. When we initially met to chat about wedding photography, we ended up spending a couple of hours drinking coffee and chatting about everything from Qigong, music, aliens + our experiences with sleep paralysis… My kind of people.

We started their session there and ended up at Woodbine beach which made for a gorgeous backdrop with and despite the crazy intense winds! The whole session was super chill and fun. We took our time and I hope these photos are an honest reflection of their dynamic together. Enjoy xx
