Julius and James spent some quality time this past weekend in High Park with one of our favourite models, the wonderful Gabby Tulloch. In some shots Gabby resembles the young Billie Holiday, in others the young Frida Khalo. Gabby wears a strapless bridal gown with organza bodice detail with a duchess satin and silk organza overlay skirt, an original wedding dress design by Arnaldo Santos. Arnaldo designs gorgeous dresses for Toronto brides. We wound up the evening doing some shots at night in front of one of Toronto’s historic Post Offices at #10 Toronto Street. Makeup was provided by Nicole Ostonal. Thanks to everyone for a fun and productive photo shoot!
Here is a sampling of some of our engagement and couples photography for Spring 2013. We’ve ventured into the Elora Gorge, the only covered bridge in Ontario, a private nature park in Caledon owned by the Peel Board of Education, Toronto Island, Queen Street West, Guildwood Park, and University of Toronto’s Hart House and University College. We love adding an engagement shoot to our wedding photography packages because it gives us the opportunity to get to know the couples we photograph, and it allows them to get used to working with a professional photographer. We’ve also used our engagement sessions to experiment a bit with old film cameras, which is a passion of ours. One of these shots was taken with a Rolleiflex medium format TLR, a “twin lens reflex camera” (as opposed to a single lens reflex camera, an “SLR” the type that most are familiar with. Another was taken with a Mamiya medium format camera using Polaroid peel apart film. Be sure to ask us about how we can use Polaroid and other film cameras to add a unique vintage look to your wedding and engagement photography.
