BEST WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHS 2019
(It isn't every photo we loved, because that would be too many:)
2019 was an interesting year for wedding photography. As so many of my friends and wonderful clients know, I also working throughout the year in the commercial world, creating photos of products, people, and art. The challenge is always that wedding tend to get planned a year in advance, and commercial tends to plan a month in advance!
To make room for both, I had to become more selective about the weddings I take. I was worried at first, but looking back I couldn’t have had a better year, both artistically and personally. I loved every single couple I worked with - all sweet, personable, and excited, and all asking me for the same thing - photos that show the emotions of the day, and a photographer who understood that they wanted to spend time with the people they love, and not away for 3 hours of photos.
And despite capturing thousands of photos of friends, family, college friends, hugs, and tears…we also made time for epic portraits, big laughs, and so much fun. To all of you - Pauline & Edwin, Katherine & Rob, Samantha & Jon, Becky & Dan, Allison & Ciáran, Emily and Mike, Lisa & Sam, Jelena & Nikola, Lauren & Sanj…. THANK YOU.
I had the chance to jump on some smaller, spur of the moment weddings at Toronto City Hall, and find some lovely new spaces-turned-wedding-venues like Christopher Cutts Gallery and an up and coming barn venue in Guelph. We also finally shot at the jewel that is Casa Loma, a new year’s eve wedding at Airship 37, and the post-renovated historic Great Hall. I spent the long labour day weekend traveling to Provence, France, to photograph the most stunning vineyard wedding, and it still feels like a dream.
To all our unique couples, whether laid-back or detail-loving - Thank you. Thank you for trusting me to get all the good stuff, and also giving me the space to be creative:) My hope is always the same - that you can go through your photos, start to finish, and remember what the entire day felt like.
It goes by so quickly, and it’s a damn honour to slow it down for you.
I am still taking select wedding dates for 2020 and 2021; if you or some of your favourite people are getting hitched,
I've love to chat with them!
You can always reach me at [email protected] or enjoy some wedding porn (aka looking at all the photos)
And, just because you made it to the end...here is a photo of me in full work mode. I am VERY committed to not blocking anyone's view.
