The funny thing about being a photographer in Toronto is that we’re essentially relegated to shooting indoors for about half of the year. What I wouldn’t give somedays to be in sunny California with the cotton candy sunsets, and the permanent glow of the sun across the smoggy sky.
But I’m not. I’m in Toronto where the idea of a January wedding strikes fear into the hearts of even the most seasoned wedding photographer.
Enter Ashley and Matt. These two sat down in my studio to chat with me about the ‘winter portrait problem’. Where do we go to make stunning and memorable photos at the end of January when there might reasonably be a snow-pocalypse happening?
So I suggested a photo studio. Confetti bombs. Champagne by the truckload. We also decided that it was only reasonable to have a Pizza Pizza delivery for these two NYC-dwelling Canadian expats. Because Pizza Pizza might not be good pizza, but the cheese is laced with nostalgia.
Ashley may be the only bride in the history of brides who would agree to something so unusual. I am so grateful to these to for allowing me to just do my weirdo thing. It was basically the most fun I have ever had (personally or professionally…two hours of shooting confetti at people is hilarious and quite exhilarating!)
Behold. The best January wedding any Canadian has ever seen!
