What does this mean?

Here’s a bit about the award, as described by WeddingWire:

The WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Awards® recognizes the top 5 percent of local Wedding Professionals from the WeddingWire Network throughout the United States, Canada and abroad that demonstrate excellence in quality, service, responsiveness and professionalism. Unlike other awards in which winners are selected by the organization, the WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Awards® are awarded solely based on the reviews from over 200,000 newlyweds. Awards are determined by a combination of excellence in four factors: overall rating (quality), total number of reviews (quantity), review performance from 2014 (recency), and consistency of reviews from year to year (consistency).”

Well, folks, I’ve gotta say, I’m so, so humbled and grateful to all of you who have taken the time to stop by my WeddingWire page to write kind words about your experience with me as your photographer. It truly means *so* much!

It’s always such a pleasure working with all of you.
It’s amazingly rewarding to make you happy (and capture your happiness!), and I feel incredibly lucky that I get to do that on a daily basis. ❤

Here’s to more wonderful memories (and great reviews from happy couples!) this year!

Love love love to all of you!

Connie & Mike – Married!

Connie & Mike had a beautiful, opulent wedding in the Fall, and while the photos have been edited for a long while, I’m finally putting some up on the blog!

It was a day to remember. Not just because they had super cool acrobatic entertainment at the reception, but most of all because of the gorgeous, love-drunk smiles they had for each other all day long.
I’ve never seen a groom tear up so much, and it was so endearing and beautiful to see. And Connie was just so radiant!

They held their ceremony at St. Clare Parish Church in Toronto and their reception was at the Liberty Grand.

Here are some of my favourites from the day.

Meagan & Adriano – Sneak Peek!

Been pretty sleepy today after shooting Meagan & Adriano’s wedding yesterday, but I had such an amazing time! Couldn’t help but dance along with everyone as I photographed the party later in the evening.

I’ve sifted through the photos and picked out my favourites, and now it’s time for bed! But first, here’s a little sneak peek from this super nice couple’s beautiful big day. The warmth of the sunlight was nothing compared to the warmth in their eyes!

Can’t wait to edit the rest – More to come soon!
