Stunning Wedding Dress by Canadian Designer Ines Di SantoOctober 11, 2014

From the minute I first saw it, I could not get over  the beauty of Maria’s gorgeous wedding dress by renown Canadian Designer Ines Di Santo . I see a lot of wedding dresses and all are beautiful, but this dress was truly a masterpiece. We loved it so much, we just had to give the dress it’s own blog post.

“Ines is a celebrated designer of bridal and evening couture, but more importantly, she gives each gown her personal touch: “Your wedding day is your chance to have your red carpet moment, and I’m here to help you look and feel amazing.” Her sense of glamour and vibrant femininity inspires every appointment. She custom fits luxury to your body and spirit with her mastery of tailoring and construction that has been perfected over countless brides in the United States, Canada and beyond. Combining her European aesthetic with her innate sense of design, she experiments with swathes of silk, lace, embroidery and embellishments to effortlessly create your perfect gown.”

Images captured at the celebrated Shangri La hotel in Toronto and the Royal Canadian Yacht Club on Toronto Island.

Lifestyle Portrait – Trevor Ryan – Sneak peekAugust 9, 2014

Trevor is an entrepreneur, actor and fitness model. He owns a local Ottawa Gym, called Boss Fitness and Trevor has been leading his Men’s physique category  in recent competitions across Canada. When he contacted me for a shoot, I was sure it was for fitness photography, but surprisingly for me he was more interested in my editorial approach and looking for more of  a lifestyle portrait for his portfolio. Trevor wanted a vintage-inspired fashion shoot that was a departure from his established fitness portfolio and did he bring the wardrobe an props together. Stay tuned for a blog post of more from this shoot, he has a killer cherry black vintage truck that is just incredible. I truly love the images we created and I think this would be among my favourites.

Inspiration – Flower Market Inspired Wedding Shower – Wedluxe FeatureJune 14, 2014

We had the wonderful opportunity to work with some of our favourite Toronto wedding vendors for this unique styled wedding shower. Set-up like a flower market, each guest received a bundle of flowers and is walked through creating a beautiful arrangement. The treats and signature drinks were gorgeous and the favors of lavender salt and potpourri were perfect. If you would like to see more from this shoot please visit our gallery.

Wedding Inspiration – Wedluxe Style – Blush and GoldJune 14, 2014

We love the genuine moments of the wedding day as much as the stylish details that inspire our clients. As both photographers that capture weddings and portraits, we also do commercial work in the bridal industry for some of the most talented vendors in the industry.







So when we have an opportunity to work with a talented group to keep things fresh and creative, we can rarely say no. Blush and gold as a colour scheme has been popular among many brides in the last couple of seasons and really shows no signs of relenting. It is aways classic as well as romantic. Here are some of the images that we captured for this Style file that was featured on the Wedluxe blog. See more from this shoot in our gallery.

Inspired by Engage – A Wedding Style BlogJune 24, 2011

Many who know me, or follow my blog know I am obsessed with weddings and style. I love Vanity Fair, Fashion photography and Vogue. I have spent hours on Fashion Television and too many hours to count watching reality weddings. My friends in the industry know I am crazy about them and their work. There are a number of very gifted floral designers in the area not to mention cake artists. The talent in Ottawa is coming into a new phase that really highlights the personalities of the couples and the experience that they want to create for their guests. I would be remiss not to mention the talent we have in the event design and planning professionals that I have had the honor of working with…once more-talented and wonderful. I love weddings.

So when I was offered an opportunity to attend Engage 11 at the Grand Del Mar in San Diego recently, I nearly jumped out of my shorts! The best in the wedding industry are there. Their work is showcased for three straight days…and I was in jaw dropping awe the whole time.  So what does this have to do with wedding photography? Directly, not a whole lot. Indirectly everything. It showed me how high to set the bar to bring my clients the best experience possible. That’s my homework and I’m excited for the changes to come ahead for my photography studio.

But the other part is that it has inspired me to create an online magazine for local Ottawa and Eastern Ontario brides trying to plan their weddings. A magazine written by industry insiders (wedding planners, photographers, bridal boutiques, etc.). It’s to help the mind boggled bride find some of the amazing talent in the Ottawa and Eastern Ontario region. It will also inspire you. I come across so many amazing vendors in my work, I feel it is a great way to pass them along without cluttering my own blog with non-photography related items.

I welcome you to subscribe to the new blog, submit your real weddings and maybe even ask a few questions to our panel of experts. Its a wedding magazine in real time, on demand and with lots of style and inspiration.

Here is a peek at my Engage experience thanks to Cloud Nine Creative ….
