St. Lawrence Market Engagement Session

 

Jessica & Leon took a stroll in St. Lawrence Market in downtown Toronto for their engagement session and ended up at their apartment for a cozy snuggle sesh. That’s what I love about engagement sessions - there’s no right or wrong answer. It can look like however you want it to look like. If that means exploring your favourite downtown Toronto area and then documenting your daily rituals at home (i.e. Netflix and chilling in your PJ’s) then that’s freakin GOLDEN in my books.

I’ll get asked sometimes which wedding or engagement session that I’ve photographed is my favourite and my answer is this: what’s ultimately memorable isn’t how epically stunning the location is, or how much money people spend on decor to please the Pinterest gods. What stands out consistently are the down to earth humans who are head over heels in love with one another and celebrate in ways that are meaningful to them. I’ve really enjoyed getting to know Jessica & Leon and am SO excited for their wedding at the Fermenting Cellar in the Distillery District coming up in just a few months! All of the hard work they’re putting into planning their wedding is going to pay off because the unique choices they’re making for their wedding reflect who they are. I CAN’T WAIT <3

 

Gorgeous outdoor wedding at Cambium Farms

 

Daaaaaaaamn Andrea & Chris freakin’ KILLED at getting married. It was not only one of the most visually stunning weddings but more importantly one of the most happy hearted ones that I got to witness this past summer.

To those planning their own future wedding: Andrea & Chris’ wedding is a perfect example of selecting vendors intentionally - the vendors that helped make Andrea & Chris’ day possible all put so much TLC into the day with their own artistic flairs. With so many different styles and talents to choose from, select vendors that match your own taste and vision for your own wedding. Choosing vendors you love offers the opportunity to not only support local talents but having your wedding be influenced by artists who can intentionally create a perfect atmosphere. Choose a badass vendor tribe and choose them wisely. Vendor credits below!
