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.
Helena and Andrew just got married. Before I post about what was simply a fantastic day, I would like to stick to chronology for now and talk a bit about my experience with them at Toronto’s Hart House. This place is always a pleasure to revisit. And I seem to do so quite often. I am beginning to feel it really is turning into one of my favorite playgrounds, given it is right in my neighbourhood. It has a deep significance to me on many levels, but so it does for this wonderful couple brought together by music. Yes, aside from their successful careers, they both like to play: Helena-cello and Andrew-violin. Their love story began in an orchestra at the U of T. Can’t think of anything more romantic than that. Two people united by their shared passion for beautiful sound. Clearly meant to be. They chose the premises as the gothic grounds are wrapped in so many of these couple’s memories. Of course I was excited to follow. On a very cold March day, Helena showed up in a dreamy green dress, going very well with her elegant, suave nature. Not to say: the green popped in each and every photograph taken. The two were playful, natural, a dream to capture!
Helena and Andrew, hope you are enjoying a lovely honeymoon in Paris and, by the time you return, your wedding photos will be on display! Congratulations and have lots of fun! Hugs, Manuela.
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!
