Kim & Chris!

Back in March, we shot Kim and Chris's nuptials. They were married at the Congress Centre and selected to do their photos in the honeymoon suite and all about the hotel itself. We were stoked to try something entirely different as we tend to look for natural light in an outdoor setting. There was some neat parts of the hotel that lent itself to some drama and mood. Not to mention that their room was probably the largest hotel room I have ever been in. Normally reserved for heads of state, including Bill Clinton, The Queen and Bill Gates, it was all theirs...and ours...

Love this shot of the dress!

Of course, ladies have to have their shoes!

And bling!

You'll see what I mean by an extravagant room. Let's start with the floor-to-ceiling windows...oh, and by the way, meet the stunning Kim!

Yes, ohhhh yes. Glorious!

Loooooove it!

And the king sized bed...

Chris. Great eyes.

Chris and his brother.

We had wonderful, warm backlighting for the ceremony...

After the ceremony, we went on tour. This is between the elevators.

Heck, let's even use the escalator for a shot!

I adore this little secluded alcove in the hotel. I think it was an old phone booth area. Lucky for us.

My favourite of the day!

K & C, thanks again for letting us do our thing. You were both so warm and fun to shoot. And thanks for letting me use all my "!"'s.

Lisa & Dino!

Well, patient blog readers, a new post!

And worth the wait I hope. May I present Lisa and Dino. What an absolutely smashing couple to be around on the biggest day of their lives. The bride was wonderfully radiant, the groom, composed and at ease.

And what a talented couple they were. From the flowers, to the food, to the invites, there was very little that didn't have Lisa and Dino's touch. And for all they had done, they managed to smile and thoroughly enjoy their day, as it is meant to be.

Dress and coat!

The invites. I believe Dino took the photos used on it. Very classy.

I love this shot Mo took of Lisa putting on the final touches...

Swanky profile!

Maureen absolutely adores this photo...and for good reason.

When we said to Lisa "OK, work it girl!", she bloody well worked it!!!

And worked it...

Still working it...


Dino's a bit of a watch guy, like me.


My favourite of the day. I adore this shot! Grace and beauty together.

You may have seen this image before...


Dino hearts Lisa!

They even planned for an evening ceremony by candlelight. It was just so gorgeous. The pictures don't do it justice.

What bride doesn't want a 5-tiered cake?!?

Even a private seating area, where you could toast one another alone...fab-u-luss!

Lisa and Dino, we'd like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts! You were both such wonderful hosts to us on the biggest day of your lives and we just loved sharing it with you!
