Victoria & Joe Toronto Engagement Photography

This past fall I was suddenly flooded with what seemed like all of my Toronto wedding photography clients wanting their Engagement sessions at the same time. It’s understandable; autumn is a wonderful time for wedding photography in Toronto. The problem with the day Victoria & Joe’s engagement shoot was scheduled, was that it sure as hell didn’t feel like fall…It felt like bloody winter! I actually wore long johns for this shoot because Toronto was just THAT cold on that day. Nonetheless, we met at our scheduled time, and began the process of toughing-it-out. We actually shot for about 10 minute, then we all took a five-minute break in one of are vehicles with the heat running. We shot for about 15 minutes longer, then I made the executive decision to take the shoot to a coffee shop. This actually turned out great, as it added that setting for a few shots that looked a little bit less planned and posed. Generally when I’m shooting engagement photography for couples, I try to keep the overall tone a bit more natural looking. If I’m posing shots, I like things to be a bit fun, or have a bit of a third element giving purpose to the photo. That’s not always easy when it’s basically me, a camera, and the couple and I have to come up with a variety of different shots. Add to that the fact that I don’t like to repeat things between couples too much, and things can sometimes become downright challenging. Sometimes finding a little shop or somewhere that the couple can be doing something other than just posing can do wonders for a shoot. This is why you’ll often find a “coffee shop component” to my engagements photography.

In spite of the brisk weather, Victoria and Joe were just easy to photograph. They kept a fun spirited attitude, and knew how to be comfortable in their own skin. I never really had to “mould” them. They really seemed to know what was working. I really had a nice time shooting with them, and am looking forward to being their wedding photographer later this year.

Every Wedding Photographer needs a blog! Here is a collection of just some of the weddings that I've photographed, engagement photography, and stories about the couples that I've had the pleasure of working with, both in Toronto and outside of the GTA. Although not every wedding will be featured here, but I do try to keep it updated with work every now and then.
