Sharon & Ryan

How They Met

Sharon and Ryan originally met by working together, in Thompson, Manitoba. Their cubicles were right next to each other in the office. When they first met and became friends, Sharon was wearing a hard hat and was angry about something and was walking angrily past the cubicles – but because she was shorter than the cubicle wall, all Ryan could see was this angry hard hat storming past. Of course he cracked up laughing.

Ryan used to stand up and talk to Sharon over their shared cubicle wall. At first Sharon thought Ryan seemed very nice, and he was very tall and had cute dimples. But she quickly realized that she couldn’t just lean over and talk to Ryan whenever she wanted, she had to walk all the way around the cubicles to talk to him!

They were friends for many years, but then one night they were at Ryan’s place – Ryan had just bought a brand new 3D TV and they ordered takeout sushi and watched a Blockbuster-rented (yes this was awhile ago!) Planet Earth in 3D to test out the new TV. Seven years later, they were engaged!

The Proposal

Ryan made Sharon a very nice dinner for her birthday (it was actually a couple days before her birthday, as on her actual birthday they were busy that whole weekend.) Along with dinner, Ryan hand-made fortune cookies (whoa!), and put personalized fortunes inside for dessert. He hid the ring inside Sharon’s fortune cookie, which Sharon almost didn’t open or eat, because she was too full. Ryan had to trick Sharon into opening the fortune cookie with the ring in it, by telling her “Oh, at least read the fortune!”, because apparently there was no plan B if Sharon refused to open another fortune cookie!

The Wedding

Sharon got ready in Newmarket, with some immediate family and a couple of close girlfriends. They had a very tight and busy schedule in the morning, including an incense offering and tea ceremony, so I met them at the St. John Chrysostom parish, also in Newmarket, just before the ceremony.

The Ceremony

Sharon and Ryan had an indoor Newmarket wedding ceremony, at the St. John Chrysostom Parish, in Newmarket. It was a HOT summer July day, but the light inside the parish was fantastic, and they had lots of fans running.

It was a catholic ceremony, lasting about an hour. Catholic ceremonies always give me plenty of time for photos! 😉

The Wedding Party

After the ceremony, I had a bit of a break while everyone went to lunch. We all then met at King’s Riding Golf Club in King City where the reception was going to be held. It was there that we did all of the photos.

The wedding party consisted of two bridesmaids (yes two, hang on…), two junior bridesmaids (see, I didn’t miss anyone!), and two groomsmen. They are a great group, and Jean had a great time driving a golf cart for the first time when she came to help us with the bride and groom photos (thanks Jean!)

Fantasy Farm Wedding Photographer | Toronto Wedding Photographer


Emily & Mandira’s Sneak Peeks

I was honoured to be Emily and Mandira’s Fantasy Farm wedding photographer! The weather was super hot, and it was threatening to rain and thunderstorm, but none of that put a damper on their fantastic wedding day!

Emily and Mandira had an all-female wedding party. Emily had her three daughters standing with her, and Mandira had her two cousins standing with her. Gotta love an all-female, all-family wedding party!

For anyone who doesn’t know, Fantasy Farm isn’t a farm at all – but it is a quaint and cozy little event center in Toronto, with tons of foliage all around. Thankfully the rain held off so we could do most of the photos outdoors!

Hockley Valley Wedding Photos | Orangeville Wedding Photographer


Shannon & Kyle’s Sneak Peeks

I knew Shannon and Kyle’s Hockley Valley wedding photos would be different, because this time, the bride was my sister! Shannon has always been unique – hilarious, random, and a bit crazy. 😉

Above (right), yes, that’s my daughter wearing a hotdog costume. Sadly it wouldn’t fit over Shannon’s wedding dress (she owns the costume), but I’d say it was definitely the highlight of the reception!

Anyway, I’m getting ahead of myself!

Shannon and Kyle got married at the Hockley Valley Resort in Mono, Ontario (15 minutes from of Orangeville). It was a HOT summer July day, and the weather forecast wasn’t looking good…
Weather Forecast July 2019

But by some miracle, the rain held off and we had clear skies until later in the evening! (The heat was still pretty brutal though! I’d say 2nd only to the heat on Sabrina & Mason’s wedding day!)

I was Shannon’s matron of honour (and wedding day coordinator, I had my video camera on a tripod that I was moving around, and my 3 kids were there so I had to play “mom”, as well as “dance mom” with some costume changes since my kids did 2 performances during the reception – I wore a lot of hats that day!), so Julie from Julie Broadbent Photography came out and shot most of the day for me up until the beginning of the reception, when my matron of honour duties were over, and I could take over the photography. (I’m doing all the post-processing.) Julie was the perfect photographer for the job, as she knows Hockley Valley Resort like the back of her hand, and was just generally wonderful! Thank you Julie!!

Shannon and Kyle got married outdoors, under the lovely draped tent on the Montclair Patio, and the reception was held in the Aida ballroom.

As it turns out, my daughter is quite the partier. She danced until the reception ended at 1am, and then she helped us clean up!

Congrats guys – more photos to come!

King’s Riding Wedding Photographer | King City Wedding Photographer


Sharon & Ryan’s Sneak Peeks

I had the best time at Sharon and Ryan’s King’s Riding wedding! They had their ceremony at St. John’s Chrysostom Parish in Newmarket, then they had their reception at King’s Riding Golf Club in King City. I love King’s Riding because there are so many great photo spots, and the staff are fantastic!

Sharon and Ryan are so wonderful – plus as an added bonus, Sharon is hilarious and being around her just makes you happy. At one point near the end of the day, she told me that her guests were wonderful, and she didn’t regret inviting any of them, so that’s always good! haha

Sharon and Ryan had two groomsmen, two bridesmaids, and two junior bridesmaids at their wedding. They’re a great group!

As I mentioned earlier, King’s Riding has lots of great photo locations (I just love shooting there!), and Sharon and Ryan lucked into a beautiful day!

I really like the photo below on the right for some reason. Foreshadowing perhaps? 😉 It’s kind of like a “stages of life” photo. ha.

Newmarket Wedding Photographer | Civil Ceremony


Carol & Aaron’s Wedding

How They Met

Aaron’s best friend Eric, lived across the street from Carol. Carol met Eric, and he invited her over one day to hang out, and she met Aaron. Carol and Aaron didn’t see each other until the next year. Then, they exchanged phone numbers and went on their first date the next week. Their first date was at St. Louis Wings Bar & Grill.

The Proposal

Three and a half years after their first date, Carol and Aaron went on a weekend vacation to Niagara Falls to celebrate their birthdays. They took a ride on the skywheel, and when they reached the top, Aaron proposed!

The Wedding

Getting Ready

Carol got ready at her mother’s house in Newmarket – and yes, as you’ll see in the photos below, she wore a light pink wedding dress!

The Ceremony

Carol and Aaron had a civil ceremony, at the Newmarket Municipal offices. It was a lovely ceremony, with a few family and friends in attendance. The ceremony was officiated by the always awesome, Carmel Goodman.

The Newlyweds!

After the ceremony, we went behind the municipal building into the gardens and did some family photos. After that, the guests all went off to Cachet Restaurant where the reception was going to be held, while the newlyweds and I went next door to Fairy Lake, and took some photos of the two of them together.
