We couldn’t have picked a more amazing couple to start the 2012 wedding season for us. Sammy & Fernanda are two of the sweetest, funniest and crazy-madly-in-love people we’ve ever met. The way that Sammy looks at Fernanda gives me goosebumps. We had so much fun photographing their engagement session in Yorkville, and just knew that their wedding would be filled with more good times.

And we weren’t wrong! Check out some of our favs below:

Fernanda’s dress was stunning and fit her perfectly, best of all: pockets!

I loved the bridesmaids’ dresses! One dress that you can wear a million different ways, each girl decided to wrap/twist/tie the dress in whatever style they loved best. The fabric was light and elegant, perfect for a summer wedding ๐Ÿ™‚

I know I’m neglecting the boys a bit in this post, so here’s one of my favs of Sammy. Like a boss!

I snuck out of the hotel room with Fernanda for a few minutes alone to snap some quick bridal portraits.

Fernanda, you are beautiful! Congratulations again to you and Sammy, we loved spending the day with you, your family and your crazy friends!

More coming soon…

Mother nature tempered her crazy mood swings and we had a beautiful day to photograph Alicia and Vince’s engagement session. We explored a few different areas in Oakville and laughed so much that my abs are sore today. Thanks for the mini workout guys!

Here’s a few of our favs:

Love these:

So fun, a fallen tree across a little creek:

A quick outfit + location change, and we were back at it.

Our baby girl, who day by day surprises us, and seems less and less of a baby turned 2 on April 19th. We spent the day together, just the 3 of us, visiting parks, and doing what she loves. Watching animals and birds. We stopped by the Arboretumย ย at RBG and can’t wait to go back again when the Lilacs will be blooming. This would be a beautiful location for an engagement session ๐Ÿ™‚

She loves to wear dresses and all things girly, but would never turn down a little tree climbing adventure.

If you’ve ever met + hugged her you’ll know what this feels like:

She’s a fierce hugger, she’ll squeeze you as hard as she possibly can and won’t leg go right away. She gives the best hugs in the world and it’s one of my favourite things about her. They’re often accompanied by little grunts and sounds of clenched teeth. It’s the only way she knows how to hug. She’s intense and we wouldn’t have her any other way.

We kept walking and discovered some beautiful Magnolia trees. Their branches hung low to ย the ground and made a perfect little hideaway that she loved exploring.

After a picnic and a little nap we headed to our favourite park for cherry blossoms + baby duck watching, Kariya Park in Mississauga. I think we were too early for the baby ducks, we didn’t’ see any at all but the cherry blossoms were beautiful.

I feel much more comfortable behind the camera… but I will let Laszlo take a few photos of me on occasion, I love this one of Amina and I. I think it may be my new favourite one of the two of us ๐Ÿ™‚

No ducklings yet, but we did see lots of turtles!

It was a beautiful and quiet day filled with hugs, and walks and time to reflect on how incredibly lucky we both are to have her in our lives. Happy Birthday Miss Amina Paprika! We love you endlessly! xox

We’ve decided to make it a family tradition, to have our photos taken in the spring around Amina’s birthday. Spring is my favourite season and with her birthday on April 19th, it’s the perfect time for family photos.

But I still can’t resist snapping a photo or two of my loves as often as I can:

This was taken over the Easter weekend, we were with family and friends and stole away for a few moments to take advantage of the beautiful light peeking through the trees.

I hope you had a lovely Easter weekend ๐Ÿ™‚
