Annie & Colin's at Home Engagement in The Beaches

I met Annie and Colin for a sunrise engagement session at their home in my favourite neighbourhood of Toronto, the Beaches.  We settled down at their kitchen table to enjoy a cup of coffee together to wake up and start out shoot on the right foot.  I was immediately smitten with them both.  Their home is filled with music and instruments, displaying Colin’s profession, and decorated with all things retro, folky, and funny, true to Annie’s unique style.  They have a large painted portrait of The Dude over their fireplace, next to a piano, across from a mid century modern sofa, where they sat sipping a second cup of coffee from some of Annie’s antique mugs.  I adore these guys.

            As the sun rose higher we headed out the front door for a short walk to the beach where we strolled the shoreline together, skipped stones, and sat on the breakwater soaking up the early morning sun.  Sunrise engagement sessions are always the best start to the day, and getting to work with these two made it even better.  Looking at them you can just tell that they are one another’s person, they just fit, and I absolutely can’t wait to share photographs from their beautiful, musical wedding on the waterfront later this past summer.

Emma & Neal's Fall Wedding at St George's Golf Club, Toronto

Emma & Neal were married at St George’s Golf Club in Toronto last fall, and I am way too excited to finally share photographs from their intimate, meaningful, and spectacularly beautiful Sunday lunch wedding. 

            Fall is a drop dead gorgeous season for weddings anywhere in Toronto, but St George’s Golf club is truly something special.  As the leaves begin to turn, Ivy stands out across the turrets and elegant lines of the old building, tall pampas grass turns golden and leads you around the property, and colourful leaves swirl past gabled windows with every gust of wind.  Inside the golf club feels like a castle, and is the perfectly cozy location for a fall wedding, with a spectacular fireplace in the rotunda, and an elegant, classic luncheon room with big windows looking out over the golf course.

            Emma has a deep appreciation of all things art and beauty, and along with Neal, is one of the most stylish people I know.  So, it was no surprise that every detail of their wedding was incredibly beautiful and sophisticated, and created the perfect complimentary contrast to the relaxed lunch reception they held for their closest friends and family.  

            Take a scroll through for infinite bride and groom style inspiration, the cutest furry wedding guests dressed for the occasion, and a lunch reception that will make you re-think your whole wedding timeline!  I love love loved getting to work with Emma and Neal to document their day, and cannot wait to share some of the beauty that came out of it.
