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!

Christmas family photos with little Kiaan & Co

I have known Kiaan since he was about 1 yr old. I was delighted when his lovely parents called me up for a Christmas shoot. Kiaan is a cheerful, energetic boy who adores his Shitzhu doggy, Mika. The two of them are a real team and feed off each other’s playfulness.
Kiaan seems to take his dog walking job very seriously and, if it wasn’t for the cold, he would have kept on running with his little buddy. Very cute to watch.
Mary + Denny: thank you for allowing me another glmpse into your family life, I look forward to returning for some more tales around the fire :)

Elegant wedding at the Hart House, Toronto

Weddings at the Hart House in Toronto are always a delight to capture. I am so taken with this historic venue’s stunning, charming architecture, the unlimited creative possibilities, the light coming through magnificent, stained glass windows.
A place of great elegance and a photographer’s dream.
Needless to say I am thrilled for every chance I have to go back to this true downtown Toronto landmark and see what else is there to discover, what new corner I have left unexplored. Every single experience is unique.

I was, therefore, very happy to learn that Madeleine and Dagomar chose this location for their celebrations. Everything took place under one roof, which made for a very relaxed day. The weather has also been impeccable.

One more time, I was taken with the talent of the Hart House’s wedding organizing team. I also have to mention the creative kitchen staff and the in house chef, who always surprise me with their culinary art. Beautiful!

M+D: may this perfect day be just the beginning of many more joyous ones spent together. Congratulations and it will be my pleasure to see you again in the future to create more family memories! Yours, 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 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!

Elegant wedding at the Inn on the Twenty, Niagara

 

Almost same time last year, I finally got to meet Lindsay and Rob for a fall engagement shoot. Up to that point, we have been corresponding but never saw each other. We started spending time together and I knew this was going to work just fine between us and more so, we would enjoy the shared experiences to a high extent. The couple chose the quaint Inn on the Twenty in Jordan, Niagara for their wedding day and they clearly were so very inspired to do it. The day was glorious, with impeccable temperature, blue sky painted with a few puffy clouds here and there and of course, with that warm, golden afternoon fall light which makes everything glitter. The most amazing natural backdrop for a couple of people so in love with each other, continuing on their path of joining their lives in high commitment. Beautiful, just like their families they are coming from. Not only I was impressed with the two of them, but loved their parents, grandparents, siblings, everybody else they chose to surround themselves with and share such memorable moments in time. A pleasure to witness, an honor to create some visual records for years to come.

It truly was a joy to be there with them, among ripe grapes hanging heavily in vineyards, a symbol of such abundance which I hope will pave their future.

Be merry always! M

An intimate and fun civil wedding ceremony

Dan and Perry are planning to have a bigger family reunion and celebrate their wedding in Bali this fall. They decided to get united in a small civil ceremony held at their condo building in Toronto.
Sweet, intimate, joyous. Not only family and friends were in attendance, but their little dog Mango seemed to be very excited as well. We enjoyed an afternoon of beautiful weather and soft light.

Dan and Perry, big Congrats to you, it was a lot of fun to capture these colourful images. Best, Manuela.

Lindsay and Robyn’s fall engagement photos

 

As a wedding photographer I have the chance to travel outside of Toronto often, which I love. It is refreshing and inspiring.

Lindsay and Robyn will get married next September at the Inn on the Twenty in Jordan, Niagara.

They recently moved  to Bradford and they go to the Scanlon Creek Conservation Area almost every day. No wonder they love it there: it is a beautiful retreat in nature with plenty of different trails and some enchanting views. A great way to disconnect from the daily pace.

It made sense for the two of them to choose its backdrops for their engagement pictures. Even though many of the leaves were already gone, we could still take full advantage of the warm colours brought to life by the soft October light. We had much fun and I got back to the city rejuvenated.

 

L+R, it is a pleasure to know you and I look forward to more adventures together!

Enjoy life and be well, Manuela.
