I can’t tell you how close Emily and PJ live to my heart.
When I barely knew her, Emily came to my home, baked cookies and drank wine with me.
When I was too pregnant to shoot their wedding, Emily was joyful for me.
She came to my baby shower. She met my friends, and became one of them.
She connected me with an incredible doula whose attendance during the birth of my son has shaped who I am as a mother.
She emailed me encouraging words when she knew I was struggling as a new mom and a business owner.
This. This is love, friends.
I’m so glad Barb was able to be with my dear, sweet Emily on her wedding day.
Emily and PJ :: I am so grateful for the light you create in this world.

I can’t lie to you :: I am a summer person.
Give me heat and humidity any day of the week.
Winter…not so much.
It takes a special couple to drag me away from my warm blankets and fluffy slippers.
That couple is Stephanie + David.
Sometimes it’s worth throwing on your longjohns to make some pretty pictures with two good people.
P.S. Thanks for the gloves, Stephanie!
Hair and Make Up by the always amazing, Ivy Lam
One of my favourite recessional images of all time.
Emily, you are the cutest human.
I also get the feeling that PJ might be rather fond of you.
More of these two very soon.

Truth :: when I photograph your wedding, I become REALLY attached to you and your families.
I can’t help it. I fall deeply in love with my couples and the incredible people who surround them.
Sometimes I get sad because I know it’ll be a little while before I get to see my beautiful couples again.
And then sometimes I hit the jackpot, and end up with families like Sandy’s.
You may remember the beautiful Sandy from her sister’s wedding last summer.
Margaret + Scott’s wedding was my first foray into the magical Nozuka world. I was hooked.
When I was invited to photograph Sandy and her sweetheart John’s wedding this summer it was like being back with dear friends.
My heart is full.
The beautiful decor and design for Sandy + John’s wedding was created by the incomparable Melissa Samborski of One Fine Day Events.
My beloved Nozukas :: you are beyond words.
Sandy + Johnny :: Thank you. Your warmth and love means more than you know.
