One of the very best e-sessions we have seen in a long while. Submitted by Chatham + Niagara based photographer Denise Blommestyn for our Best Engagement Photo contest, Leah & Darryl's set immediately stood out.

The storytelling quality of the shoot, the environment, the light, the love!.. those two should be in a Nicholas Sparks novel...

The Huffington Post actually calls it "The Best Wedding Video of All Time", but I don't think we 'd go that far..

"The Most Involved Wedding Video" perhaps, or
the "Most Amount of Effort ever put into producing a Wedding Video"..

Impressive nonetheless!

(*) By the way, Lorna from Blush Bridal saw it and had to happily point out: "the dress is by Amsale and its called Cecily!!"

Kelly and Chris stepped out of the typical wedding comfort zone when creating their wedding. The bright yellow and black pallet created a sweet yet elegant look to their wedding day.

  • The choice of flowers created a focal point for their guests to feel the warmth of the bright yellows.
  • Guests took home yellow, white and black custom M&M's with the bride and groom's faces printed on one side. Fun and creative!
  • The 'Faux cake" was created to display numerous mini desserts, creating a breath taking tiered dessert display.
  • A warm and welcoming lounge was put together on the outside patio for guests to mingle and enjoy signature cocktails and appetizers.

We met Kamil, Patricia and their adorable little boy, Nick, at a Starbucks earlier this year. Nick was exhausted and slept through most of the consultation. We were so excited that they chose us to share in their special day and have truly enjoyed getting the opportunity to get to know them through this incredible event. We wish them and their lovely family all the best! Congratulations Kamil & Patricia!

~ Paul + Melanie, Darlington Studios, Barrie


Kamil and Patricia were married at Saint Maximilian Kolbe Parish in Mississauga. This was our first time attending a Polish mass. Although, most of the service was in Polish (a language we do not speak, but now wish we could), we totally understood the sentiment of their emotional ceremony.

    Vancouver outdoor wedding photography by John Heil

    Jesse & Loreili, August 2009, Vancouver

    We love these photos. (They're part of a much longer session, by Vancouver photographer John Heil, back in 2009) But what's so great about them is how they demostrate that you really need not stress about exotic photo locations, driving around for hours in the middle of your wedding day. All you really need is a quiet spot nearby, a talented photographer and (of course!) a relaxed, adventurous couple (i.e. you!). Brilliant! (click, for high-res images)
