     Our spring wedding season has been made up of some amazing couples and families; Kristen and Mike are no exception!    We met Kristen and Mike shortly after they got engaged in August 2017.  We were completely taken by their story; after their first date (which lasted eight hours btw!), Kristen went home and told her mom and sister that she had met the man she was going to marry.  Talk about a memorable first date!  Three years later, Mike took Kristen to one of their favourite places, Niagara Falls, got down on one knee on a bridge facing the Falls and asked for Kristen's hand in marriage.  We can only imagine Kristen's reaction as she is a person full of energy and love! She excitedly began planning her dream wedding for April 2018.  It wasn't very long after meeting these two that we both realized that this was a very special couple.  Right from the moment the wedding planning process began, they made sure that each of their family members knew how much they meant to them.  Down to the smallest detail, they included their cherished family members.  From having their parents help them with getting ready, Kristen's first look with her dad to having three generations of wedding photos displayed at the venue, they really put a lot of thought into a very memorable affair.  Kristen even included a very personal touch in the wedding details by including the broach her grandma wore on her wedding day in her bouquet.    After talking about different options for their big day, Mike and Kristen decided that they would like to have their 'first look' at their gorgeous venue, Legends on the Niagara.  Kristen really liked the idea of reading one another cards they had written beforehand just before seeing one another.  We could just feel the anticipation to see one another.  We were just as excited as they were! After a very sincere and sweet first look, we moved to the majority of their bridal party and family photos.  The natural setting around the venue and the beautiful spring day made for some gorgeous pictures!  After the photos, we headed to the ceremony and then back to Legends for cocktails and dinner afterwards.  The newlyweds were welcomed to Legends with costumed soldiers firing off authentic muskets from 1812 which was a crowd pleaser for sure!  Looking back, we'd have to say that the most memorable part of this wedding was in fact the speeches. They said so much about how much these families loved, respected and valued one another.  Several times, we had to tell ourselves to focus on taking the photos, lol, as we were so moved by the heartfelt comments.  We feel it a real honour to have met and got to know Kristen and Mike. We wish them nothing but happiness and joy in the months and years to come.

Paris and Jake, ultra photogenic with hearts of gold and senses of humour extraordinaire!  Did we ever enjoy spending the day with them along with their friends and families.  Right from our first meeting together, we knew exactly what they envisioned for their wedding day:  an unforgettably fun time for all their guests at Niagara's historic wedding venue, Ball's Falls.  Jake's family and friends were travelling all the way from British Columbia for the festivities and friends came from as far as Mexico; therefore, enjoying the day and making it memorable for all was fundamental!  Enjoy the day they did!

     One realizes how quickly time flies by when it feels like it was just yesterday that we were in Kensington Market, doing Sydney and Aaron's engagement session!  We knew this would be a special day for all; family and friends came together from all over, Sydney's brother and sister-in-law had just arrived from abroad to celebrate and several close family members played a huge role in making it such a pretty event (including a custom cake made by Sydney's sister!).  Sydney told us she had been dreaming of this day for a long time; she knew exactly how she wanted to go and what was most important to her to be photographed; her friends and family.  As with all of our couples, we sat down and worked together to plan out a wedding day timeline to ensure she and Aaron could look back on the photographs years to come!    Some couples ask us what a wedding timeline consists of.  Wedding days are busy and sometimes downright hectic.  A timeline allows the couple to put down on paper how they want their day to go.  Every couple wants their weddings to go smoothly; having a schedule for the day helps to do just that.  It also assists in taking the best advantage of having us there with you!  Beautiful photos do not happen by chance, planning the 'where / who / when / how' of the day will mean you will have gorgeous shots and memories.  As they were happy to have just the videographer the ceremony, we met them at Sydney's family home after the ceremony.  We began with individual bride and groom portraits and then moved into family portraits.  Later we took the couple to a park not far from Aria Bistro for some more bridal portraits and then headed to the reception.    They were troopers in the cold March weather!!  The windchill made it pretty brisk to be out too long.  We all thought it would be best to reserve the bridal party photos where they could be warm and cozy.  The staff at Aria were wonderfully accommodating; making sure that we had a specific space to ourselves for a few minutes to capture the bride and groom with their bridal party.    The families and the newlyweds speeches had the crowd (and us!) laughing; they were frank, heartfelt and extremely gracious.  After cutting the lovely surprise cake that Sydney's sister made, the dancing got underway.  The lively crowd were ready to dance the night away!     We left the reception feeling extremely happy for Aaron and Sydney.  We can't wait until our paths cross again in the future :)

These two.  We can't say enough about their character, love and commitment to one another.  Diana and Arturo met in 2016 while Diana was on holiday in Costa Rica.  On her last night there, her and her friend were invited to Arturo's house by a friend who they had met during their time there.  We guess you could say the rest of the story is...history ;)  Coming from two people who know what it's like to date long distance,  Junilo and I have tons of respect for the strength of character and determination it took to make a long distance relationship work.

Most would agree that it is quite easy to have an affinity for Europe; its culture, way of life, history and architecture make it incredibly easy to love.  For Junilo and I, Europe holds special meaning to us as it was our home for eight years.  Our photography style and inspiration is often drawn from our experience and years living there.
