“Some people meet the way the sky meets the earth—inevitably, and there is no stopping or holding back their love. It exists in a finished world, beyond the reach of common sense.”
- Louise Erdrich

I think we came together like that, and I can’t imagine not having met you, it’s a great impossibility and I know that to be true more than 100%. Ten years already, and I find myself looking around to see where time decided to go. It feels like we’ve just begun to know each other, to really discover each other, to really understand one another, and it makes me happy.

Happy to know that there’s still so much I don’t know about you, happy to know that of what I do know I love so much. Happy for the future and the adventures I know we’ll have and the discoveries we’ll make. Happy to know that no matter what happens, you will still choose me and I will still choose you, just like we did 10 years ago, and again and again throughout the years.

I love you more than I know how to. I’m going to spend today in humble appreciation of what we have, with my heart full of gratitude for you, and thankfulness for the for the forces that brought us together. I’m going to smile all day, and miss you until you get back.

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 Arboretum  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 :)

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  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 :)

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 :)

Welcome! :)

Hello hello!

We’re so so happy to {finally} launch our new blog/site. Here you can find everything you need, in just one online presence. It’s been a long time coming and we’re absolutely thrilled with the results.

We just wanted to say thank you to everyone that supported us through this change. We’ll be updating the Galleries Page with more photos & full wedding galleries over the next little while. So check back often :)

2011 was a great year, but 2012 is going to be fantastic. We’ve got the best clients in the world, and some beautiful weddings coming up that we can’t wait to photograph.

I love this photo of us from our last 2011/first 2012 wedding:

It was New Years, we had wrapped up our season… and both so excited for all the changes that 2012 is going to bring…
