These wonderful people are getting married at the end of the month. We met a few weeks ago to do an engagement shoot in the Harbourfront area. Fun, relaxed, just the way I like it.
I am always very inspired when around such energy. Claudia and Thomas are a beautiful young couple with a lot to say to each other and to my camera. I am sure the photos below make this statement quite obvious. I am grateful to have crossed paths with them and I look forward to the opportunity to spending more time together on their big day.
Hugs to both, M.
Hanna and Matt are a fun loving, modern couple with a taste for Toronto’s urban landscape. They are also very fashionable and I could tell right away they would photograph extremely well. I simply loved their choice of colours for our downtown shoot. Hanna looked vibrant in her beautiful blue dress while Matt complemented her so well with his muted blue and grey tones he chose for his own outfit. We walked around King street and stopped in some of the most suitable spots for this image collection. We aimed for a bit of nature, textures and lots of colours, while also stumbling upon some unexpected rugged, super photogenic corners.
Hanna and Matt, hope you will smile while recalling our adventure through the photos below. I look forward to seeing you at your wedding soon!
Melissa and Mark decided to hold their wedding ceremony and reception at the chic King Edward hotel downtown Toronto. I love it when everything is so close by, it always makes for a more relaxed day. This way I got to spend some time with both the girls and boys and had some fun in the area. I mentioned before how much I love photographing downtown Toronto. And no matter how many times this happens, I still end up being surprised by the textures, colours and corners around. This was the case on such a lovely October day and I think the photos below will speak for themselves.
Melissa and Mark, it was great being with you on your day and I wish you much happiness together! Hug, Manuela & Co.
Melissa and Mark are getting married this October at the quaint King Edward hotel. They love downtown Toronto, so do I. I am always super excited whenever I get to shoot around my favorite part of town. I am a downtown girl and I simply love it! We had so much fun with our engagement session. Melissa recommended the area around Ryerson as she has studied there and loved the look of some of the old stones. Such a nice flavor to add to our images! This, combined with some of the spring colours, made for a wonderful decor for Melissa and Mark’s sweet and romantic side to come out.
Looking forward to the wedding day! M
Alex and Liz thought it would be a great idea to surprise their dad by offering him their framed portraits for Christmas. I decided to go for a creative urban shoot, therefore we met downtown Toronto and explored the area around the Art Gallery of Ontario. Despite the cold and the fairly large snow flakes coming down from the grey sky, the two girls were so easy going, up for anything and a lot of fun to be around. They even commented on the ‘impromptu’ feel of our photographic adventure. With just a general idea on how I would like the session to begin, I allowed things to unfold naturally and the inspiration to kick in while walking down the street, exploring and being drawn by particular corners and textures. I enjoyed myself and I hope Alex and Liz did as well.
Thank you for a good time and all the best in the new year!
