This was our first wedding of the season. A big start with great people. This is a GOOD crowd, every. single. last. one. of. them! I’ve been shooting in Muskoka for close to a decade and the Sherwood Inn kids never fail to disappoint. Sarah and Josh make me really happy about being a wedding photographer.
They will be married tomorrow and I will love it, SO MUCH. The best thing about working my ass off all summer is working for couples like this, that get married in places like these. Muskoka Cottage Weddings are the best.
If you’re a beautiful yogini (Moksha Yoga in Thornhill) and a super-duper-enthusiastic canoe tripper (that’s the mild version) living life in Muskoka where would you have your engagement session? ‘A Chip truck‘ is the obvious answer. Kind of a no-brainer. After fries you head to the cottage and hop in the canoe – again, obvious. Not sure I need to say too much more about these beauties – filled with love and compassion for each other, shooting them was easy and felt natural. They are deep and dynamic and full of kindness. My entire family may have a couple-crush on them. Last night my little Charlie couldn’t take his eyes off her. Their destination wedding is coming up in just 2 weeks. More trees, more yoga, open water, all over 3 days of sweet celebrations!

Muskoka’s Cottage Country is where family dreams are made of, where young couples raise their sweet summer families and where those kids eventually come to play and be married. This is the case with Sarah and Adam.
There is a long driveway at the end of a winding dirt road, on the far side of town. They have an old cottage, a new boathouse, and an antique cedar boat. There is a long history and shared property…and of course they will have their wedding here. In true Muskoka style their wedding day will be a mix of old family history, a rustic and romantic outdoor ceremony and a beautiful reception at the Muskoka Bay Club. This was a morning full of sweet and awkward giggles, some beer – but never enough, and a little bit of ‘making out in a field’. Loved photographing these two beauties.
Meet Sue and Sean. Maybe you’ve already met them. In which case you already know them! There aren’t very many couples whose interests, motivations, and tastes are this deeply intertwined. Meeting them once, having a full day with just them meant that I was privy to something very special. They are sweet, unique, and very matter of fact about their…awesomeness. Not only was their engagement a reflection of who they are as a couple but, in as a less obvious statement so was their Toronto wedding day. They were married at ‘School’, in Liberty Village. And like them, School has a unique personality all its own.
Cheers to you both. I feel privileged to have met you. Enjoy Cambodia (yes! their preferred honeymoon destination). Be safe and take a lots of pictures. I can’t wait to hear all about it. Here is your pre honeymoon sneak peek!
And a great big, gratitude filled ‘Thank You’ to my talented, driven and on-top-of-her-game second shooter, Janette. I love working with you and love looking at your pictures. You are great!
