It’s hard to say enough good about Eli & Michelle. They are so laid back and silly that being with them is so much fun! Their engagement session at Bayfront Park in Hamilton was absolutely no exception. A blast from start to finish. I could go on and on but I’ll let the photos do the talking!
From the moment we met Matt & Janelle for the first time, we loved everything about how they exude love and positivity to everyone around them. Their engagement session with us was so much fun and it filled us with excitement for their wedding which was just as incredible. The morning began with the girls getting their hair and makeup done while the guys got suited up! When dresses were done up and ties were tied, everyone converged at Dundurn Castle for the ceremony. After these two had made things official with an I do, signing of the registry, and a kiss, it was outside to explore the grounds and capture some photos! The weather had been threatening rain all day and, as luck would have it, the skies had opened up when the ceremony had concluded. Thankfully, the coach gate and front area of the castle provided us with just enough room for all of the party and bridal portraits we could ask for! From there, it was over to the Marquis Gardens in Ancaster for Matt & Janelle’s reception. After many rounds of heartfelt speeches and delicious food courses, these two shared their first dance and the floor was officially open! Their guests danced the night away but not without one final photo with Matt & Janelle to conclude a beautiful wedding. These two are another shining example that rain certainly doesn’t have to ruin your wedding day! Congratulations Matt & Janelle! We are so happy for you guys and so thankful you chose us to capture your special day.
You may remember Greg & Sanaz from their charming & breathtaking engagement session earlier this year where we made use of some classic Hamilton locations. For their wedding day, we did much the same thing and the photos were that much more incredible! The guys began the day at Architect Hair Design on James St N where you enjoy a beer while a barber cuts your hair. After the guys had gotten freshened up, it was back to Greg’s dad’s house for to get suited up and ready to go! The girls got ready at Greg & Sanaz’s place in Caledonia and after many emotional moments, the dress was on and it was time to tie the knot. Arriving at Marquis Gardens on the Mountain, Sanaz made her way down the aisle to her expectant groom and after an exchanging of vows and rings, these two sealed their pledge with a kiss. Party time! It was at this point we all piled into an RV (the couple’s chosen mode of transportation for the day) and headed down to McMaster University where we explored the campus for some amazing photos. We had the time of our lives not only photographing the party, but watching Greg & Sanaz so naturally slip into their couples photos as the love was in abundance as it always seems to be. Before we knew it, it was time to head back to the Gardens for the reception! So many speeches, so many laughs, a ton of music, and even more dancing! Everyone had a fantastic time celebrating with these two and witnessing them make their commitment official. Congratulations Sanaz & Greg! We are so happy for the two of you! Thanks for choosing us to capture your day!
We clicked with Tim & Sandra nearly the moment we met them. Hearing them tell the story of how they fell in love and subsequently got engaged, we knew that being a part of their story would be such a huge honour for us (as it is every time)! After their experimental and sentimental engagement session, we could hardly wait for their wedding day which was sure to be just as amazing. The girls began the day at Sandra’s mom’s house on the Hamilton Mountain while the guys got ready at their home on Gage Ave. When the time had come as the ceremony drew near, we headed over to the Royal Hamilton Yacht Club / Waterfront Centre for the big event. When friends and family had gathered, Sandra made her way down the aisle and, in no time at all, these two were hitched! We then partied with the party for photos at the Waterfront Centre before we took Tim & Sandra right next door to Pier 8 where these two had their first date at the Williams right on the water. When we’d wrapped up there, we headed back to the Waterfront Centre for their reception! With incredible speeches that included a lot of rapping (special shout out to Sandra’s mother who slayed it) and tearjerker moments (in tribute of Tim’s late father), the night was packed to the brim with emotions that made everyone feel so close. The night ended with dancing – tons and tons of dancing! From start to finish, we had a fantastic time with these guys and were so thrilled to have witnessed it all unfold. Congratulations Sandra & Tim! We are so happy for you guys!
After Jason & Vicki’s incredible vineyard engagement session last Fall, we knew their wedding was going to be incredible – and it absolutely was! With Jason and the groomsmen getting ready at his place in Grimsby, the girls got ready at the C Hotel in Hamilton which is an incredible spot (owned by the Carmen’s Group). After a morning full of anticipation, everyone arrived at the Lakeview for the big event! With some of the sweetest and sincere vows we’ve heard, these two declared their love and, before we knew it, it was official! We quickly headed outside to the beach where we captured some breathtaking photos (with many cameos by the venue itself!). After we’d had a ton of fun with the party, it was time for Vicki & Jason’s bridal portraits where we ventured out onto the rocks and spent the majority of our session. We couldn’t get over just what an incredible view it was with these two on the shore of Lake Ontario! When the time had come, we headed back inside for a reception packed full of laughter, speeches, and dancing! From start to finish, it was such a beautiful day and we couldn’t have asked for more. Congratulations Jason & Victoria! Thanks for choosing us to capture your big day!
