Kathy & Victor | Toronto Wedding
Kathy & Victor | Toronto Wedding Family and friends from Poland and Ecuador came all the way to Toronto to celebrate the union of Kathy & Victor. Even the rain couldn’t stop all the warm and joyful spirit of this happy bunch. As soon as we walked in the door, the bride insisted to show us all the outfits made by her cousin. All the girls wanted to be a bridesmaid after seeing the beautiful blush pink dresses. Kathy told us that her cousin flew in town from Poland a few days prior. Her cousin made all her bridesmaid’s dresses, her mother’s stunning outfit and altered her beautiful wedding dress. Self-proclaimed shoe-addict, Kathy was also very excited to wear her brand new Christian Louboutin shoes (who wouldn’t) for this special day. But what we loved the most, was the breathtaking work from her hairstylist, who integrated beautiful flowers to her updo. Congratulation again to Kathy & Victor!

Each day going forward brings us closer and more in love. We are now best friends. -Shannon Gear: Canon 5D Mark III | Canon 6D
Kathy & Victor | Toronto Engagement
Kathy & Victor | Toronto Engagement Toronto in the summer is the sort of place that is just meant to be photographed. So add an adorable, in love duo who has been together over 15 years in the mist of a green park and you’ve got an ever lasting e-session. Kathy and Victor haven’t had many pictures taken together in the past but they were nowhere near shy when it came to posing together. Their big day will be at the beautiful Donalda Golf Club in Toronto and we’re looking forward to go for another round with these two. See you soon! -Dewey
Mitwa & Ralph | Montreal Engagement
Mitwa & Ralph | Montreal Engagement From the bride to be: Back in November of 2014, although the temperature was about -20° C we were “casually” found to be in a secluded park overlooking the Saint Lawrence River to a breath taking view of Montreal. This was my first and Ralph’s second visit to Montreal and we wanted to make the most out of it and that he did! This was no casual visit. While sitting on a bench and enjoying the view he slowly pulled out his phone, read a very sweet poem he had written for me and then popped the question! There I was with a ring on my finger and officially engaged to my fiancé. We met the first time earlier that year in Hamilton, Ontario when Ralph had driven down from his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio for the Easter weekend. We started dating soon after and didn’t take much time to realise that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives with each other. And here we are now, back in Montreal for our engagement shoot. We had such a blast with our photographer Dewey, who made us feel totally comfortable. We now look […]
Catherine & Jacob | Montreal Wedding
Catherine & Jacob | Montreal Wedding The parents of the bride flew all the way from their tropical warm paradise in Bolivia to the cold snowy winter in Montreal. The bride chose their wedding day to be in the middle of December, so their parents can have a white Christmas, which they haven’t had for 40 years! Catherine, with the help of her mom, confected almost every little detail themselves. From the bouquet, the centrepieces, the wedding favours, the details added to the bride’s shoes, the invitations, the sweet/candy table… sounds like a big stressful job? Not so much for Catherine, as she is an event planner by profession. The entire day was relaxing and memorable. Catherine and Jacob are very simple people. They do not let things stress them and started their day pretty late. They did not want a bridal party and Catherine did not want her makeup and hair done. They opted to be as natural and organic as it can be. The entire day was happening at the beautiful St-Martin Hotel & Suites. Catherine got ready with her mom in their suite and Jacob with his best friend and Catherine’s dad. The ceremony and reception was […]
Quyen & Toan | Montreal Wedding
Quyen & Toan | Montreal wedding Whenever we have a couple who wants to book us for a Montreal wedding, we get really excited. Montreal is always a dear place to our heart as we both grew up there and getting to take pictures of our bride and groom in our beautiful hometown feels very special to us. After the great Engagement Session with this couple in Toronto, we know that we were going to have a lot of fun on their wedding day. Thank you Quyen & Toan for being brave enough to conquer the cold Montreal weather, allowing us to capture these beautiful pictures.   Flower: SKY Fleur | Church: Église Notre-Dame du Très-Saint-Rosaire | Reception Venue: Le Cristal Chinois | Formal Shoot Location: Old Port of Montreal, World Trade Centre Montréal, Palais des congrès de Montréal
Quyen & Toan | Engagement
Quyen & Toan | Engagement Quyen & Toan have known each other a little over a year. It didn’t take long before these two decided to tie the knot. It’s the kind of love that made Quyen move 3,000km away from her home. The moment Toan proposed to her, she dropped everything in Edmonton and moved to Montreal. They say love can move mountains, this one moved cities. They picked a nice summer weekend to come to Toronto to book us, and what a surprise as they asked to do their engagement shoot on that same day. Why not!!! Since it was such a beautiful summer day, we couldn’t pass the chance and we’re glad that we did it spontaneously, because we all had so much fun. -Dewey
Whitney & Marlon | Fall wedding
Whitney & Marlon | Fall wedding 9 years together, 2 beautiful boys, a dog and a new house later, these two love birds finally tied the knot on a beautiful fall day. Mother nature announced cloudy rain for the whole week (including the wedding day) but the couple lucked out and got a marvellous sunny day. We loved how Malcom “the elder son” wanted to be involve in the day. From dressing up with his father, smiling and posing for the camera, walking the isle with his baby brother and busting a dance move entering the reception hall, to holding the mic and thanking the 115 guests at the reception for celebrating his parents wedding. Whitney & Marlon wanted a wedding inspired by fall colours. Therefore, they’ve pick the Riverwood Conservancy park in Mississauga for their formal shoot. They envisioned the reveal while being surrounded by tall trees. The location was perfect and so was the gorgeous couple.   From the bride: Our wedding day was hectic and perfect all at the same time. It was a beautiful day and I’m so thankful that I got to spend it with my amazing bridal party that helped ensure everything went smoothly. […]
Catherine & Jacob | Engagement in Old Port Montreal
Last weekend, we drove 570 km to Montreal to shoot Catherine & Jacob’s engagement session in the beautiful Old Port. But let’s be honest, any occasion for us to pay a visit to our hometown is a delightful getaway. Who can resist the food, the summer festivals, the joie de vivre of our French Canadian heritage and of course, our family and friends. Catherine & Jacob are Montrealers who recently moved to Ottawa. Therefore, when we asked them if they wanted to do their engagement shoot in Ottawa or Montreal, the final verdict was made without any hesitation. It is the place where they met, it is where it all started. The couple has been together for the longest time and have finally decided to get married this winter. These two crazy love birds brought lots of energy and laughter to the photoshoot. I had to stop in the middle of the shoot a couple of times because their laugh was so contagious that it was nearly impossible to hold my camera steady. They chose the Old Port because of its European flair. Its historic buildings and charming brick roads is what sets Montreal apart from other cities in Canada. […]
Engagement | Wendy & Long
Wendy & Long have been together for over a decade and have two beautiful daughters. Between running their Edible Arrangements store in Mississauga, renovating their home, bringing the kids to school, piano lessons and caring for their two dogs, they have finally decided to tie the knot this year in Montego Bay, Jamaica. After having to postpone 3 times due to bad weather and with only one week left before the wedding, mother nature finally decided to smile upon us with a nice sunny afternoon. I still remember the first time we were discussing the engagement shoot with Wendy & Long. The expressions on their faces were priceless. They were nervous, skeptical and unsure of being able to deliver fun, natural and intimate poses for the pictures. There was extra pressure as they wanted us to create them a guestbook album with these shots for the wedding on the following week. Needless to say, we stayed up all night after the shoot to work on the pictures, created the album and sent in a rush order to the printer. The couple delivered great pictures and the album came right on time for the flight. I say, not bad for a […]
