Winter engagement photos shoot in High Park

When beautiful Madhu and her beau Charles showed up for their shoot last month, all dressed up in gorgeous Indian attire, I skipped a heart beat or two! They were so stunning and regal, what a joy to capture them on camera. It was simply effortless! For a few minutes, I felt like I was in the middle of a model shoot! Many of their shots could be on a magazine cover, don’t you think?

What an interesting couple they are: looking smashing in his Indian attire, Charles is actually Nigerian. He will marry Madhu in a Hindu ceremony in March. I am thrilled for their beautiful relationship coming full circle. And I am sure, so are they!

Hard to believe these photos were taken in January…they have a fall look almost, until one scrolls all the way down to the frozen lake image series. I was slightly nervous when I suggested they stepped on the ice, but then there were kids playing hockey nonchalantly, so I figured the danger was, luckily,  only imagined :)

Dear Madhu + Charles, thank you for a delightful Sunday afternoon spent together, hope these images will make you smile!

Toronto engagement photos with Anita & John

Anita and John are to be married this coming July at the picturesque Hart House in Toronto. When I first met them I was really taken with their vibrant, fun, upbeat energy and warmth. We connected extremely well so I can only be very excited to be a part of their celebrations.

John’s father lives close to the Humber Bay bridge, an area very dear to him and Anita, as they love to walk by the water and enjoy the fantastic cityscape  views. We tried to incorporate some of these elements into their engagement photos.
The session was a lot of fun and I truly felt I have spent a great couple of hours with friends.

Look forward to their wedding! M

Engagement photos in snowy Toronto

It is always good to go for things that are a bit different. Jenia and BJ are to marry this coming spring (I still can’t believe I am saying this already, time seems to race with us lately..). They love winter and sports in the snow. With great excitement, Jenia connected with me last month letting me know about some serious amount of snow coming our way. As we could not wait for it to settle, we decided to go out and play while the snow flakes were dancing their way down. Lovely if there is no camera to worry about. Well, that’s when a weather proof cover comes handy, except shooting through is not an easy task. It fogs up constantly which is slightly limiting. And a bit frustrating, when there is so much beauty around that needs to be captured with no obstacles. Yet, the way to do it, unless someone offers to carry a huge umbrella and follow one around, anticipating all the sudden moves.
Well, I have to say, it all paid off in the end, as the photo collection we produced has a beautiful, ethereal, dreamy feel. Wouldn’t you say?

Jenia & BJ: I look forward to seeing you again on your big day. Until then, enjoy your winter! Best, Manuela.

Farm engagement shoot with dogs and horses

Holly has been a rider for a long time. Sadly, a couple of years ago she was involved in a bad accident followed by months of intense rehabilitation. What I admire about this brave girl is her willingness to go back to being around horses. That takes trust and an inner knowing that, whatever happened previously had absolutely nothing to do with the horse she was training being bad…but just an unfortunate chain of events leading to an undesirable outcome.

Good news is that she is now riding again. And enjoying it so much that she managed to persuade her fiance, Robby, to do a photo shoot with horses. I was really impressed with how well he has done that day. Riding a horse is not an easy pursuit. One needs to remain centered, have their emotions in check. These animals sense everything that happens inside the person who is around them, not to mention astride. It was Robby’s very first time and he has handled it beautifully.

The couple brought their two lovely pups that day as well and I could have not been happier, surrounded by animals and nature. Hope the images below give you a sense of how much fun we had that nice November day!

Holly and Robby: can’t wait for our Jamaican adventure together next spring! Yours, Manuela.

Fall engagement photography with pets and lots of colours

Sakura and Henry are to marry next spring. They could not have picked a nicer contrast for their photo story. Fall colours are always such a spectacular backdrop. The light is also more forgiving and softer than earlier on. We truly lucked out last week as the leaves were so bright, plus we were able to play in the park right before the drizzle began.
The lovely couple’s dogs, Hachi and Zeb, were fantastic to watch and capture on camera. Their favorite activity: jumping in and out of the creek. Good thing they left this at the very end, as their otherwise beautiful, shiny black coats ended up wet and even slightly muddy.
Even though Sakura and Henry knew they would have to go home and give these two another bath, the joy in their eyes while watching their pups have fun showed that they would be really happy to oblige. The dogs are really loved and they know it…and it reflects in how well behaved they are.

Sakura and Henry, enjoy these lovely images until we see you again next year! Best, Manuela

Toronto engagement photos in High Park

Lisa and Jeremy are to be married beginning of September…coming soon! They love High Park…I do, too…very much so…and I see it with fresh eyes each time.
A month ago we met there and spent a lovely couple of hours walking around, enjoying the warm afternoon light, strolling on lovely alleys above which old trees have formed natural, thick arches…a lovely creative warmup preceding this lovely couple’s nuptials during which I am confident I will have an equally fantastic time!

L+J: see you very soon! Yours truly.

Downtown Toronto colourful engagement shoot

Here is a glimpse into a lovely engagement photo shoot I had the pleasure to experience with a fun couple: Irina and George, to be married this fall.
We lucked out on the weather that evening, the light was perfect: warm and rich, making all colours pop. We walked around the St Lawrence Market area and had a lot of fun stopping here and there, making use of some fabulous backdrops.
Very inspiring!

I&G, I look forward to seeing you again and spending more time together in your big day! Hugs, Manuela

Engagement photo shoot with Madeleine and Dagomar

Madeleine and Dagomar are getting married in a bit over one month. As with many of my wedding clients, we meet before hand and spend some fun time together, strolling around the city and taking photos. This is a tremendously important experience preceding the big day, as we get to know each other better, they learn to relax in front of my lens while I get to better understand the way they are as a couple. It is overall a pleasant warm up which leads to a newly established level of comfort on both sides.

M&D, I look forward to seeing you again this August! Yours, Manuela.

Engagement photo shoot downtown Toronto

Amanda and Fady met in Egypt a few years ago. While Fady and his family live in Toronto, Amanda was traveling from London, UK. They are now planning to build their life together in Canada. So exciting!
During one of Amanda’s visits, they wanted to take photographs downtown Toronto, as they both love the urban landscape. We opted for the City Hal area, with its beautiful architecture and great geometry which is always so fun to play with.
Sweet and very laid back (not to mention beautiful and extremely photogenic!), they were a delight to be around. In spite a few rain drops, the weather decided to cooperate that April afternoon and we happily carried on with our little creative project.

Enjoy the images below!
