Jasleen & Vinay

I shot Jasleen & Vinay's engagement session on July 1st and we chose to incorporate as many of the Canada Day Festivities as possible. There was a small carnival nearby. The rides were an obvious opportunity for a dynamic shot. Luckily the attendant didn't see me bring my camera aboard!
Candace and Layton

Layton Reid is himself a fabulous documentary/wedding photographer, now based out of Halifax, NS. After 10 years together with Candace, they were getting married in September and, since I was home on the East Coast for my annual autumn trip, we got together to take some photos of them. We got halfway to our location and it started to pour, but when we arrived we lucked into the most beautiful light...as though the sun set three separate times just for us. I noticed a patch of weeds with dried seed pods, and thought they looked a bit like hearts floating in the distance, so I asked them to sit directly on the weeds. The were freezing and naturally started to snuggle, and that's when I took the photo. Layton and Candace are the real deal. It was our first time meeting, but they made me feel as though we were old friends. Together they're so full of life, fun, and are some of the warmest and most genuine folks I've met.
Anna & Stephen

Beautiful High Park in Toronto, Ontario was the back drop for this photo of Anna and Stephen (they were married on 10/10/10!). The beauty of the "almost kiss" and the delicate light from a late June sun creates a certain magic for me.
The Envelope Please..
So much talent, such little space.. We went through thousands of images, hundreds of shooters, hundreds of great couples; our editors short-listed and argued; our readers voted and "liked" on Facebook..
In the end, surprisingly (or perhaps not?) the top-3 (above) were unanimous: our staff, our panel and the popular vote, they all agreed (there is a first time for everything!).
Ranking the next seven was impossible though (sooo... close!); they are simply "top photos", all of them, each expressing the particular couple's personality and photographer's style & technique.
Our criteria were simple
- Love! You must feel it through the page.. (or computer screen - whatever)
- Memorable, stunning photography (obviously!)
- A sense of portrait. A photo in which you would expect your friends to recognize you. Something you would display at your wedding and in your home, forever..
