At Home Engagement Shoot | Toronto Wedding Photographer, Halifax Wedding Photographer

L + T are getting married tomorrow and I couldn't help but think of the amazing engagement shoot we had in their home here in Toronto. They turned on some music, had some 'coffee' and snuggled as they watched the sun slowly disappear behind the buildings from their condo windows. When asked what they typically do on a night in, L & T mentioned hanging out on the couch but also, laying and lazying on the ground. And of course, some ground snuggling had to happen as well! 

We then headed out to a hiking trail near their house to chase the light. We found a hidden, amazing trail that led us to the view of the Toronto skyline and found light in different nooks and corners. This was my favourite kind of shoot. It was relaxing, spontaneous, adventurous and intimate all at once. We hiked until we lost light and it was just the best thing ever. 

Downtown Toronto Wedding | Toronto Wedding Photographer, Halifax Wedding Photographer

M & J had their downtown Toronto wedding last year at 99 Sudbury. 99 Sudbury is a modern, loft-like wedding venue in the Queen West area. The space has both industrial brick walls and white modern walls acting as a blank canvas for a couple's wedding. M and J started the morning hanging about with their wedding party at their condo and at the Gladstone Hotel. The Gladstone Hotel was a perfect space for getting ready for their wedding, going with their modern, chic vibe. The hotel had a roof top patio space for them to do their first looks. Overlooking the city and the CN Tower, M had an emotional first look with her father (everyone should do one!) and a heartwarming one with J. 

Their urban wedding had the most chic details including M's unique wedding dress that she converted mid-day and her stunning bridesmaids black low-back jumpsuits. My favourite touch though was the chuppah they used for their wedding ceremony. The chuppah was made from lace from her grandmother's wedding dress. I love it when couples include special touches to their wedding! It makes the day so much more meaningful than it already is and of course, just reduces me to complete mush.
