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...

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)

    Best wedding photographs in Canada, 2010Remember those stiff, "formal" wedding photos from the 80's? Families, posing lined up in the park?
    Then, the 90's marked the first great evolution: candids and black & whites, brought emotion into your wedding memories, laughs and tears and movement - experiencing the moments through the eyes of your guests.
    Now, another small revolution is taking place in wedding photography: depth! (if that is the right word for it) More and more, the environement is becoming part of the photo, the wind, the waves, the clouds.. more than ever, you look at these pictures and you feel like "you were there"..

    Selected among almost a thousand submissions, these finalists best illustrate the best in wedding photography for 2010. Click each photo, for a larger image - the full experience!
