I received an Instagram message from Kathryn just four weeks before her wedding, saying her photographer had fallen through. A stressful situation for anyone to be in, but she was cool as a cucumber. Kat, and her twin sister Liz, were close friends of mine in high school. She moved out to Toronto after uni and I ventured out to the west coast - as things go, we lost touch. But luckily the stars aligned and I had her wedding date free. I was super excited to be reunited with my old friend and document her special day.
Kat and Jeff designed their wedding to encompass what they love - architecture, art deco design, fine wine, and their nearest and dearest. Both the ceremony and reception venues were unique and had their own distinct vibe. The Hart House was a fitting place for a an elegant wedding and The Drake One Fifty was the perfect venue for a metropolitan soiree. After heartfelt speeches from both Kathryn and Jeff's twin siblings - that's right, they are both twins - the night continued with an epic dance party courtesy of the funk band Grooveyard.

It was a foggy evening in Pacific Rim National Park, when I met Jen and Kyle for their connection session. We started the photoshoot in Ucluelet. The fog rolled in off the ocean and the sunset created an orange haze. We climbed over the black rocks and cliffs - it felt surreal. After, we carried on down the highway to Long Beach, just outside of Tofino, to catch the last bit of light. The park was the perfect backdrop to capture their connection with each other. They are both such easy going and happy people. Their smiles are contagious, and I was lucky to be able to make the trip to one of my favourite places to photograph them.
