2016 - Year in Review

2016 - Year in Review

In keeping with the yearly tradition (20142015), I have put together a series of my favourite images from Engagements and Weddings that I have taken in 2016. Check out my blog for more 2016 images!

It has been an eventful year. At the beginning of the year - shortly after Jennifer and Mike's wedding - I completed my long planned move from the UK to Canada. Swapping urban London for rural Ontario has been a great experience and, through the many couples I've met, I've been able to explore the province.

Emma and Ben's Engagement session at Paletta Lakefront Park, Burlington

Last weekend I photographed my final session of 2016 with Emma and Ben at Paletta Lakefront Park in Burlington.

Emma and Ben wanted to have a snow covered engagement session during their time back in Ontario for the Christmas period - with a bit of luck we were able to find a day that had fresh snow and was above -10c!

Elisabeth and Jan's Wedding at Rosehill Farm, Woodstock

Elisabeth and Jan's Wedding at Rosehill Farm, Woodstock

I recently photographed Elisabeth and Jan's Wedding at Rosehill Farm in Woodstock. 

Having photographed the couple for their engagement session earlier in the year, I knew that it was going to be a fun day. And it certainly was!

The day started at Elisabeth's house for her bridal preparation before travelling to the FRC Church in Burgessville for the ceremony. Afterwards, we headed to Woodstock where the reception was held at Rosehill Farm. 

The fall weather was perfect and allowed us to take full advantage of the outdoors at Rosehill Farm for Elisabeth and Jan's portraits.

A few weeks ago I photographed Kiva and Tom's wedding ceremony and reception at Woodside Greens Golf club in Simcoe.

Khuong and Vy's Wedding at The Lakeview by Carmens, Hamilton

I recently photographed Khuong and Vy's wedding day in Toronto followed by their reception in  Hamilton at The Lakeview by Carmens.

I started the day in Toronto at Khuong and Vy's home for their preparation and ceremony before travelling to Hamilton where the couple were having their reception. At the Best Western Premier C by Carmens, the couple changed out of their traditional attire - cue more preparation shots - before travelling to The Lakeview by Carmens for their wedding reception.

Save for a brief - yet heavy - rain shower, the weather was perfect on the day!

Paige and Chris's Wedding at Hernder Estate, St Catharines

Several weeks ago - and on the hottest day of the year so far! (36c) - I photographed the wedding of Paige and Chris at the Herder Estate in St Catharines, Ontario.

Since first meeting the couple back in June for their London engagement session, I knew that their big day would be so full of humour and emotion! And it didn't disappoint!

Beth and Rob's Engagement Session at Adrenaline Paintball in Melbourne

Beth and Rob's Engagement Session at Adrenaline Paintball in Melbourne

A few weeks ago I photographed probably my most unique Engagement session to date - at a paintball field in Melbourne, Ontario!

Photographing Beth and Rob's Melbourne Engagement Session was an experience! One emptied bag of paint-filled balloons later, I'd taken some very unique shots and in the process managed to get myself slightly covered in paint. Though thankfully not as much as Beth and Rob. 

After such a unique session, I am looking forward to being their Wedding Photographer in Glencoe later this year. I can't wait to see what they have in store!

Below are a few images from the Engagement session in Melbourne.

Elisabeth and Jan's Engagement Session at Bonnieheath Estate Lavender and Winery, Waterford

Elisabeth and Jan's Engagement Session at Bonnieheath Estate Lavender and Winery, Waterford

Elisabeth and Jan recently had their Engagement Session at Bonnieheath Estate Lavender and Winery in Waterford, Ontario.

As we planned the waterford engagement session at sunset, we had the lavender fields to ourselves which allowed for no distractions. In addition to the lavender fields, the estate also had an adjoining Rye field - although I didn't know it was Rye until speaking with the owner of the estate at the end of the session. After 4 months in Ontario I'm still learning my crops!

Elisabeth and Jan were so much fun to work with and I am looking forward to their wedding in October 2016, which I'm sure will be just as much fun!

Kiva and Tom's Engagement Session at Apps' Mill Nature Centre, Brantford

Kiva and Tom's Engagement Session at Apps' Mill Nature Centre, Brantford

In preparation for their August 2016 wedding, I photographed Kiva and Tom for their Brantford engagement photography session at Apps' Mill Nature Centre. Taking a stroll through the area, which Kiva and Tom knew well, we found many awesome points to take some great engagement photographs including the old mill, by the river, and on a suspension bridge.  

Kiva and Tom were such a great couple to photograph for their brantford engagement session and I look forward to photographing their wedding in August.

Below are a few images from the session (as well as the Engagement Photo Film):

Tia and Ronnie's Engagement Session at Grand River, Brantford

Tia and Ronnie's Engagement Session at Grand River, Brantford

A few weeks ago I photographed Tia and Ronnie's engagement at Grand River in Brantford. We had originally scheduled the session for early May but had to reschedule due to the freezing temperatures  - not ideal for a heavily pregnant bride-to-be!

Fast forward 2 weeks and it's now 30c!

Tia and Ronnie are getting married in September 2016 but for now below are a few images from the session.

Christine and Andrew's Engagement session in Toronto

Christine and Andrew's Engagement session in Toronto

I recently photographed Christine and Andrew for their Toronto Engagement photography session ahead of their 2017 wedding. This was my first engagement session of 2016 - and my first in Canada! (following my move from the UK a few months ago).

Christine runs the thewalletdiet.com which is well worth a look. She was actually referred to be me by another blogger - UK based Jennifer of Simply + Fiercely - after I photographed her wedding in London, UK in late 2015

We started the session at Wilbur Mexicana, a Mexican restaurant favoured by the couple, before taking in some of the Toronto streets.

Below are some of my favourite images from the engagement session - including shots of the iconic Toronto streetcars!

Jennifer and Mike's Wedding at The Alma, Wandsworth

Jennifer and Mike's Wedding at The Alma, Wandsworth

I photographed my first wedding of 2016 recently with Jennifer and Mike at The Alma in Wandsworth. 

Jennifer and Mike contacted me at the beginning of the month looking for a last minute wedding photographer for their London wedding and after reading their story, I couldn't say no! Jennifer runs a travel blog - Simply Fiercely - and documented how she met her future husband Mike. I won't summarise it here as I don't think I could do it justice, but do check out her blog.

Jennifer and Mike had their civil ceremony and reception at The Alma in Wandsworth. Both parties were getting ready at the venue - which also doubles as a boutique hotel - so I started the day there and stayed until the reception. This meant that I didn't have to spend too much time outside during the day which was especially cold at -2c. We did take both the bride and groom and group portraits outside, but this was a very quick process!

Below are a few images from the day, and don't forget to check out Jennifer and Mike's Wedding Photo Film
