toronto-island-wedding-stephanie-beach-photography-02What do you say when your best friend gets married? I have written and re-written this sneak peek post a dozenĀ times now and nothing ever seems to be enough to describe how immensely overjoyed I was this past weekend as I watched one of the very best people I know marry someone she loves so much, and who loves her just as much in return.

Engagement Session at Toronto Harbourfront: Teri + Greg

As I mentioned in their sneak peek, I shot Teri + Greg’s engagement session over the Thanksgiving long weekend. We did the majority of the shoot as we strolled along the Toronto Harbourfront but did take a shot or two on Yonge Street before we headed towards the water. It was a rather chilly day, but the warm sun made it quite nice as long, as you stayed out of the shadows.

As anyone who knows me is painfully aware, I am not the biggest fan of Toronto. I go there for work on a semi-regular basis and of course to visit my friends and family who call it and the surrounding area home, but other than that I typically like to stay away. I normally think of it as a rather cold, concrete filled world that doesn’t really have the natural beauty that my home of Ottawa does. All of the being said, Toronto held its own with respect to peaceful beauty during this session and I was very impressed with the harbourfront. I am so glad Teri + Greg wanted to do their shoot there as it gave me a new outlook on the city. We were able to capture images with a more industrial feel to them thanks to the city’s concrete and large buildings, etc. but the majority of the shots showcased the natural side of Toronto and of course, the amazing couple I got to shoot with all afternoon!

Another reason I loved this session was because of all the personal touches. I normally have my couples select their location for the engagement shoot as it tends to make the photos mean more to them in the end, but Teri + Greg really hit the nail on the head with this one. From previous residences and nearby statues to their old running paths. I really enjoyed going through the area with them and hearing all the personal connections to the areas.

Engagement Session at Toronto Harbourfront: Teri + Greg, Sneak Peek

Last weekend was Thanksgiving here in Canada and Dave and I spent most of it with our families eating way too much food and having tons of fun. We also spent portions of it with a few awesome clients.

Just before starting our official Thanksgiving, I met up with Teri + Greg for their engagement session along the Toronto Harbourfront. The location was fabulous and the weather was simply gorgeous, though a touch chilly, and to make things even better, Teri + Greg were awesome! Here is a little sneak peek at their session.
