Intimate Wedding Photography

An Intimate Affair | Catalina & Sami

Intimate weddings like the one I'm about to share really do something to my heart and soul. Maybe it's because my own wedding was itty bitty, or maybe it's because there are only a handful of people who hold such intimate affairs, that when I do get to be a part of these kinds of days, well, they just feel extra special.

Catalina & Sami were all smiles from the first moment I saw them each on their wedding day to the moment I said my goodbyes. I started the day with Sami (as much I love bride prep, I also really love groom prep and get excited on the wedding days where both are on the schedule for me), then headed to the private golf club where Catalina got dressed. Each little event was laced with moments to remember. Calm, intimate, giggle filled moments.

The ceremony was complete with their pup as their ring bearer, cultural traditions, laughter, tears and beautiful & totally personal vows. After their kiss, they walked down the aisle right into their first dance as their family gathered around to watch. There were no cell phones distracting anyone, everyone was completely present. You could feel all the emotion in each person who was honoured to share in their special day.

Weddings don't always have to be big events where you rush around, or things are overly drawn out. Sometimes it's just short and sweet, where everything flows into the next thing and everyone is present the entire time.

Now don't get me wrong I love big weddings too, but these intimate affairs really melt my heart in a way I just can't stop smiling about!

PS. in case you are wondering about the gorgeous blooms that add so much beauty to this wedding, which you should because they are STUNNING, they are by my girl from Hunt & Gather

A Golden Hour Elopement | Liz & Steve

Liz & Steve. These two make my heart skip a beat. The first time I met this couple wasn't actually the first time.  A lot of my clients are referrals from other rad couples, and knowing who they came referred by, I knew they were good people (shout out to Amanda & Brian!!). But as a couple, with the focus being just them, we met for the first time over drinks at my favourite meeting spot in Queen West. We chatted, we laughed and we really hit it off. Apparently my own wedding (the small little intimate ceremony we managed to have in High Park) was inspiration for part of their wedding plans too. They had me more than smitten. And, I apparently was their lucky charm, as after meeting with me, they got word they got the home they had just put an offer in on. Woot!

Flash forward a few months later when it was finally wedding time. It was a two day event, but it was the Friday that made me heart cartwheel with excitement. Friday was the day that just me, a Rabbi and these two loves adventured into High Park to officially tie the knot. We met at their home, signed the official documents with their family & a few friends, then just the four of us jumped in Steve's truck and headed to a magical little spot in High Park where the sun set by a big tree on the waters edge. The intimacy, the sweetness and the sentiment was so strong and touching that I definitely had to wipe a few tears away behind my camera. These small moments have the biggest affect on me. This career of mine brings me into the most intimate of moments between people who define love in the purest form and it makes you know our world has so much good in it.
