I said this before: each spot in Toronto has its unique character and it does not matter how many times one goes back to certain areas, there is always more to find and explore. This is the case with Toronto’s colourful Harbourfront. On each occasion I return there I discover more angles and I find the personality of the couple I photograph always inspires me differently.
Lisa and Mike are a lot of fun. From day 1 I was fascinated with their backgrounds: a lovely mix of European/ Asian on both sides which gives them such beautiful features. They are lovely, playful, easy going, relaxed and I very much look forward to attending their nuptials at the end of August.
Until then, enjoy this record of a spontaneity filled evening we have recently spent together. More to come! M
It is interesting how ‘explorable’ some places are. No matter how many times they get to be visited, there are still little surprises hiding around corners…this is the case with the Toronto Harbourfront. Mostly very busy, on the day of the shoot the usual crowds were somehow missing, maybe due to the rain threat. Lucky us, as the light was absolutely incredible. My very sweet ‘models’, Giselle and Anthony, were so good! Not only I diverted them from our original plan, but I got them to step on moving platforms, jump into docked boats, walk up and down little hills. I know they were tired at the end, but content with the adventure I am sure, as the colours were truly fantastic. Some of the photos even look like they could have been taken on the East Coast… Well, I guess sometimes mind travel is better than no travel at all
I look forward to your wedding this summer, dear Giselle and Anthony! Enjoy the warm weather until then and prepare yourselves for some fun! Yours truly.
Laura and Greg will get married this summer. One warmer day at the beginning of April, we went down to the Harbourfront for their engagement photo shoot. As much as I love the sun, it was casting some harsh shadows on their faces that day and I felt bad to see how hard they were trying not to squint. Regardless, we ended up with a happy collection of photographs depicting who they are and how they feel for each other. I loved shooting there as the place truly felt like our own playground, generously offering inspiring elements as backdrops.
Thank you Laura and Greg for being such sports, I look forward to spending more fun time in August!
