THIS IS IT. Another boudoir marathon in Toronto, Januart 21 & 22, 2012.
Treat yourself in 2012…better yet treat your lover to something they’d never expect.
A message from one of of our previous marathon clients…
“Good morning Kate!
I just wanted to say another huge, huge thank you for Saturday. I never could imagine that it would have been as fun, and comfortable as you made it. It’s not every day that a stranger can make someone in their undies feel comfortable, especially in front of a camera!!
Thank you for being so incredibly fun, professional and showing me some of the shots. Also, for spending the extra time and getting in those last few incredible pictures with the flash! I can’t wait to see them all and have you put together an album for my love.”
What a privilege to shoot for Rachel and Mike! Shooting a wedding is always so much fun, I really do love this work…but shooting a wedding for people you know is pretty darn special. Although I had not seen Rachel in years we met first in Brampton in grade six or seven, I think? We grew up together, just around the corner from one another actually. After middle school we went to different high schools but remained friends. This meant attending her wedding was a great big high school reunion for me. Jay and I spent the morning with the girls at Rachel and Mike’s home in Toronto then ventured downtown to Rachel’s favourite park for the big reveal and a bunch a group photos. We always find shooting an evening wedding so relaxing. This is exactly how I’d describe their entire wedding day.
Here is a small selection of my favourites from their Toronto Wedding day at Berkeley Church. Until now the only images I’ve shared online have been their Thank You card picks…glad to finally be sharing these since it was a such a beautiful wedding to photograph…way back in April!
Congratulations to my sweet and wonderful old friend Rachel and her lovely hubby, Mike.
WOW-WOW-WOW! Can I just say…wow. This day was awesome. I do say that about every wedding (because every wedding is)…but holy smokes this was so cool. You may know this if you read this blog, Jay and I are pretty much in love with Liz and Cheryl. They are our cousins and avid subjects. To date we have captured them on 3 separate occasions; engagement, wedding shower, wedding, oh wait…and at Amy and Tammy’s weddings.
So there are many photos to share…because many things happened. First we took the 1030am ferry to Toronto Island where we walked (or road our bikes) to the far side. We arrived at Gibralar Point, each received a birch bark canoe with a homemade beeswax candle, then we walked through a very bushy path where Feist, Hawksley and other fabulous music was coming from. Each of us chose our places on bright orange and yellow beach blankets. Imagine a crystal blue sky, sparkling water as the eye can see and the annual regatta…100 incredible sailboats making their way past us. A flawless day. We released our handcrafted canoes, sent a blessing out to “sea”, and released monarch butterflies. Dreamy. We ate in the garden said our thank yous and I love yous and played on the beach. It was truly a day to remember.
P.S. Not only did Jay and I get to spend the day with some of favourite people, doing what we love…we also celebrated our first anniversary. As I mentioned to Liz and Cheryl’s guests we could not imagine a more meaningful way to spend our first wedding anniversary that to be with the women we love. They have been beautiful role models for us in our own adventure through love.
We were so blessed to have this opportunity. A long weekend in Toronto, eating at our fave Korean place (Bloor and Clinton), shooting the most wonderful wedding on Toronto Island, enjoying our family, and simply loving life.
