Wedding Photography at Redcrest Golf Club in Newmarket, Ontario

Sheila + Robert | Wedding Photography in Newmarket, Ontario

Sheila + Rob were married on a brilliantly sunny and warm day in June. June 10th to be exact. Why is it important to mention the significance of this date? Well, this date is important (not only because it is their wedding date), but because it just so happens to be the very same day they met six years ago. It’s, also, the date that they got engaged five years later. One year ago today. It’s simply perfect that this endearing couple chose June 10th as the day to commemorate their union. This is their wedding story.

Lindsay + Darryl | Wedding Photography Fusion in Innisfil, ON

Lindsay + Darryl are married! We traveled to the tranquil, tree-lined Belcroft Estates for the lively wedding of this fun-loving couple. We started the day with Darryl and the guys in the infamous “Man Cave,” complete with a big-screen TV, jukebox, antique automobile and pool table. Lindsay and the ladies were next door in the luxurious Farmhouse Spa watching the Jays game (just like the guys) and finishing their hair and make-up. Linsday + Darryl shared some fun times with their bridal party, exchanged thoughtful gifts with one another via sister delivery, then dressed for the day. Darryl, in his handsome suit, and Lindsay, in her stunning lace gown. You could feel the anticipation in the air as the time for their ceremony drew near. We took a few moments for bridal party portraits, then headed behind the gate for the ceremony.

Family and friends arrived on the bus and gathered at the pavilion for the ceremony. Lindsay arrived in a vintage car and walked arm-in-arm with her mother down the aisle to meet Darryl. The two exchanged rings, simply beautiful vows, and were pronounced husband and wife amid the shouts of joy of their loved ones. We captured some family portraits near the laneway, while the guests enjoyed cocktail hour in the courtyard. It was time for the grand entrance. Lindsay + Darryl entered the barn to cheers from the crowd and started dining. Speeches were given throughout the courses, followed by a sweet first dance under the stars. Everyone gathered inside, to dance the night away and celebrate the big day.

Winter Engagement Session at Devil’s Glen Country Club in Glen Huron, Ontario

Mike + Lindsey Engaged!

Lindsey + Mike

Meet Mike + Lindsey. This super sweet couple got engaged (almost a year ago) at Mike’s happy place, Devil’s Glen Country Club near Collingwood, Ontario. That glorious day back in March 2016 of their original engagement in the woods brought with it a wild ice storm; however, the day we chose for their photography session a year later was unseasonably warm. Being that Devil’s Glen holds a special spot in their hearts (it’s where they first met!), we couldn’t think of a more perfect place to re-visit for their engagement session.

Winter Engagement Photography Session in Midhurst, Ontario

Dave + Kaitlyn Engaged!

Dave + Kaitlyn

Meet Dave + Kaitlyn. This good-humored couple (they love to laugh!) found us through their venue, one of our new “favouritest” wedding spots around Barrie, Vespra Hills. Love the location and staff! When we chatted about their ideas for an engagement shoot, they mentioned that they wanted a snow day portrait session. Well, that’s exactly what we got! Blustery winds, frigid temperatures and snow squall warnings were in full effect. You couldn’t ask for more perfect conditions for a winter wonderland theme.

Winter Photography Engagement Session in Barrie, Ontario

Sara + Mike Engaged!

Sara + Mike

Meet Sara + Mike. We first met these two at our place a few months back. From the moment they spoke about their engagement story, we were instantly delighted. Mike surprised Sara with a proposal hidden inside of a fortune cookie (which you could imagine took some serious preparation and planning)! Sara read the fortune, BUT he had stepped out of the room to get the ring, and heard a scream coming from the other room. He ran back to see if she was okay and realized she had read the fortune, and in his hurriedness to check on her safety, he forgot the ring in the other room. So, he had to go back and get the ring and the rest is history. Seriously, could these two be any cuter?!? We knew then and there that we had to incorporate the fortune cookie into their engagement session.
