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!
Congrats Emily & Mandira!

Alana & Michael
Alana and Michael’s story is something movies are made of – they met, it was love at first sight, and within 8 months they were married!
How They Met
Alana and Michael met online through a dating app. They went on their first date (a romantic walk through the woods), and it was love at first sight! Alana knew it was going to work out, and so did Michael. He knew right away that Alana was going to be his next girlfriend. What he didn’t know at the time (of course), was that he would end up marrying her within 8 months of meeting!
After just 6 months of dating, they were both certain – they wanted to be together forever. They were just hanging out, having casual conversation, and they started talking about getting married. They both agreed it had to happen – so why wait!
Alana and Michael both got ready at home, so when I got there we did a quick First Look, then went right into bride & groom photos.
Since it was the end of October, we used the beautiful fall colours in the backyard as a backdrop. It worked out beautifully (except it was pretty cold and poor Alana was freezing – but you can’t tell that from the photos!)!

Alana & Michael’s Sneak Peeks
Alana and Michael had their fairly traditional Jewish wedding ceremony at the Darchei Noam Synagogue in Toronto, but for their sneak peek photos, I’ve chosen a few of my favourite portraits from their day! Even though it was the end of October, there were still some beautiful fall colours in their backyard that made a wonderful background.
Congrats Alana & Michael! It was a pleasure to document your big day!

My very first impression of the Estates of Sunnybrook McLean House was that it seemed a lot like Graydon Hall Manor in Toronto. If you’ve ever been to both venues, you probably know what I mean! There’s the big gorgeous house, lovely reception area, and beautiful grounds. The grassy ceremony area at the backs of both venues were pretty similar as well. The McLean house has its gorgeous curved grand staircase, which is the perfect place to put the cake (or in this case, cupcake) table!

Amy and Michael lucked into a summer beautiful day, and they took advantage of it by having their wedding ceremony outdoors, behind the McLean House. The lighting was just perfect, as the sun was setting behind the trees surrounding the ceremony area, placing the ceremony in the perfect spot – open shade!
Amy and Michael did a First Look before their ceremony. As I tell many couples, deciding whether to do a First Look or not is entirely up to them, and how they want their wedding day to flow. Amy and Michael wanted to do their bride & groom photos before the ceremony, when they were both looking their best, and ideally before any guests had arrived so they could take advantage of the beautiful venue.
Photographing Amy and Michael was a breeze. I’m pretty sure Amy is hiding a secret modelling career from me, and Michael was so expressive – I love it!! Michael couldn’t take his eyes off Amy once he saw her!
As you can see, we took full advantage of the gorgeous venue, and did bride and groom photos all over the place! There were beautiful photo locations everywhere, inside the McLean House as well as outside!
Once we finished the bride and groom pictures, Amy went back upstairs to the bridal suite, while Michael went outside to greet guests. The bridal suite was a big, well-lit, open space. It even had a big bathroom complete with bathtub (which I’m told to-date only one bride has ever used.)
They had a wonderful afternoon ceremony. The majority of the guests hadn’t seen Amy in her wedding dress yet, so they all admired how gorgeous she looked as she walked down the aisle. A talented harpist by the name of Chantal Dubé played some romantic and elegant music for Amy to walk down the aisle to.
As I said earlier, I just love how expressive Michael was – the smile on his face as he shook his soon-to-be father-in-law’s hand makes the entire photo!
I love outdoor weddings like this because I have SO much room to move around. I can take photos from so many different angles! (This is where you can imagine me running around like a silent photo ninja, taking photos from all angles. haha.)
Amy and Michael had a fantastic wedding party – what a fun group of people!
With flowy dresses like Amy’s, I do like to do twirling shots sometimes. When I photograph my daughter wearing any type of dress or skirt, she insists on doing twirling photos, and really, aren’t we all just 5-year-old girls at heart?
The reception area was elegantly decorated. Amy and Michael had many guests that travelled from far away to attend their wedding! They had guests from China, England, Michigan, and even Mississauga (haha.)

Congrats Amy and Michael! It was an absolute pleasure to document your wedding, and I hope you’ll enjoy these photos for years to come!

Theodora and Neil’s Le Select Bistro Wedding Photos | Toronto Wedding Photographer
Theodora and Neil had their wedding at an intimate little French restaurant in Toronto called Le Select Bistro. But how they first met wasn’t nearly as romantic as their Le Select Bistro wedding – they met at a bar! They went on their first date somewhere on Danforth Avenue in downtown Toronto, which is fitting since they are both “city people”. They got engaged at while on a trip to Blue Mountain Village, in Collingwood.
The covered patio (or the “jardin” as the restaurant calls it, which is French for “garden”) made for a wonderfully cozy ceremony area.
We did photos just outside of Le Select Bistro restaurant. We spotted a fantastic brick wall covered in vines and ivy, so we started there!
“I love how compassionate of others’ feelings Theo is. I love how trustworthy, determined and self-sufficient Theo is. I love how she will make a great mother. How sweet she is. And I love how much I love her.” – Neil
Theo loves Neil’s good, trusting and tender heart. His playful nature and sense of humour, and his ability to make her laugh even when she is trying her hardest not to. She also loves his drive to succeed.
As I said in the sneak peek post, I just LOVE all the floral arrangements by Peter Paul’s Flowers! Especially Theodora’s bouquet! The unwrapped stems of the bouquet are my favourite style of… wrapping? I’m still not sure about the term for it. ha.

The happy couple!

I also found out a few things about the couple during the speeches at the reception – which was held in the private dining area of the restaurant. Theodora speaks 5 languages! And Neil is late for everything, haha.
