Anja & Jordan’s wedding was in May of this year, and was outside of Toronto. I had already had the honour of being Jordan’s sister’s photographer at her wedding a couple of years prior, and was thrilled to get the call from them about Anja & Jordan’s wedding. Being familiar with the entire family made the entire process feel like a big reunion.
The wedding was held at Basilica of Our Lady Immaculate in Guelph, which is one of the most impressive churches. The simple size alone is incredible. I could swear there are clouds forming on the inside near the ceiling. The couple had their photos at their reception venue, Whistle Bear golf club in Cambridge. It’s kind of funny, but I’ve never liked shooting at golf clubs. I guess I always felt they are the least interesting locations for a photo shoot; Grass, trees, sky… That’s about it. Contrary to this, I really liked Whistle Bear. Anja had already discovered a couple of cool spots on the grounds that gave us some interesting backdrops. Add to that the fact that Anja & Jordan are both simply great looking people, and suddenly the golf course photo shoot works!
