Parin and Sandro met in San Francisco, but their professional and academic pursuits drew them to Toronto, where they were married in August 2014 in a two-day ceremony merging Hindu and Catholic traditions. We’ll be posting those photos later in the fall, but first we wanted to share with you their very special engagement portrait session that we shot with them at their home in west Toronto, and at Trinity Bellwoods Park, probably Toronto’s hippest, most colourful urban park space.
Parin and Sandro obviously love and care for each other a great deal. It’s evident in they way they relate to each other, and in the ease of their being together. It shines through in these shots. For a great couples shoot, you don’t need a fancy location, and you don’t need to be in the hippest park in the country. All you need is love.
You can’t ask for a better location for shooting a couple than the west coast of Jamaica around and in Negril. Between the resorts and Negril town there are still a few quiet stretches of sand where the locals hang out and play volleyball. Access to the ocean is open and mostly without a hassle. Going past the ever crowded Rick’s Café – where Julius joined the cliff diving fraternity, Negril’s lighthouse is the perfect place to watch the sun go down.Thanks to “Dr Love” for letting us use his beach camp and to our great driver Raoul.
A simple beach wedding with only the tightest group of friends and family. What could be better? Before the western Caribbean sea, and in front of 25 loving friends and relatives, Maricel and Ramil pledged their eternal love and devotion to one another on April 26, 2014 at the Riu Negril. Julius & James were very fortunate to have been invited to capture the events and details of the day. We will be posting more photos of our couple’s shoot with Maricel and Ramil on the west coast of Jamaica in the coming days, and we’ll be back shooting in Jamaica again in January 2015. We would be delighted to shoot your destination wedding as well. Please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to get in touch with us!
Julius & James were in China this past November shooting some studio work, as well as some destination engagement work. Here are a selection of images shot by Julius in Guangzhou China. We hope you enjoy them!
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!
