When Arthur K of Fusion Events has says he has a great couple and he needs a wedding photographer that can handle it, I know he means it’s going to be a big, loud party. That was exactly what Erin and Simon had. It was one of the most energized weddings that I’ve been a part of in recent memory. No shortage of music, movement, and ear-to-ear smiles.
Being a wedding photographer in Toronto sometimes means doing weddings just outside of the GTA. The Royal Ambassador in Caledon is one venue that it worth the short drive outside of the city. It’s one of few places that can host a large wedding and also facilitate a great photography session on the grounds. On Erin & Simon’s day, there was no shortage of sun, which looked prefect shining through the willow trees.
There was a certain closeness that I could see in Erin and Simon. I wish I could say that all couples have it, but I just notice it more with some couples. It was the way they were always kind of smiling with each other… I guess it’s the way it should be. They definitely make each other happy, and it showed in every single photo. This may not be something that anyone else notices, but for me it’s the highlight of the photography. This connection that a married couple should have is somehow more rare than you would think. This connection is the very core of what I try to capture at a wedding. Often, I can be heard encouraging couples to “focus on each other” during our photo shoot. Over and over again, I’ll repeat. Sometimes couples look unnatural focusing their attention on one another. Erin and Simon looked perfectly happy and natural doing this, and the reward is something that reflects that in their wedding photos.
Arthur and his team did a fantastic job, as usual, making sure that every detail was perfect and on time. At the end of the night, the couple was so happy with Arthur that they picked him up for a quick photo.
