Jen and Jake are engaged! {Toronto Engagement Photography}

Jen and Jake have one of the best "how we met" stories ever! Their eyes met across a dance floor at a wedding, and it was, as they say, love at first sight! They danced for hours and have been inseparable ever since.

We spent a lovely afternoon with them both in Toronto - in High Park, and then at the Sunnyside Bathing Pavilion (which did not involve bathing of any kind, but did have an awesome fountain and wrought iron gates!)
It rained on and off all afternoon (and, if I'm being honest, it was more on than off), but these two were troupers!

Thanks again, Jen and Jake!

Melissa and Rian are Married! {Port Elgin Wedding Photographer}

Take one canadian girl, and one australian boy. Have them meet by chance while travelling in the UK. Sparks flew over a dinner for two, and then those sparks grew into mutual attraction, a first kiss, a relationship grown and nurtured through letters and packages sent, long distance phone calls organized over multiple time zones, and, eventually, love, an intercontinental move, and, of course, plenty of travelling adventures thrown in along the way.

The wedding took place at Melissa's family cottage in Port Elgin, and, yes, the scenery was amazing!

Between the beautiful ceremony...

...the awesome wedding party......the reception filled with heartwarming and very funny moments......and the tiniest occasional embarrassing moment, depending on which side of the story you were on......to the dancing on the beach, it was a wonderfully perfect day.
Rian and Melissa - congratulations, and thank you for letting us be a part of your day! It is obvious that you create amazing community and a sense of home for yourselves wherever you happen to be (your international guest list is proof!) All the best as you continue on life's journey together.
