A Beachin’ Time

Us photographers are pretty spoiled here in Toronto. We have such a variety of shooting locations to choose from. No wonder so many out-of-towners head to the city of T.O. to snap shots of their clients in love. With the big city lights, art galleries, universities, awesome cultural neighbourhoods and of course the Beach, the possibilities are endless. Nina and Igor – cool wedding photographers from Oakville, knew what they were looking for when it came to their engagement session and it was right here at the Beach!

We’re always so flattered when our fellow wedding photographers hire us to document their special day. It’s such an honour when our peers admire our work enough to choose us for such an important event in their lives!

As we chatted about their engagement session we we’re all pretty set on shooting in the relaxed and trendy neighbourhood of “the Beach”. We were drawn by all of the funky little shops, painted alleyways and of course the rolling waves.

We drove through scattered showers with fingers crossed that the drizzly weather would clear. Lucky for us the rain, rain went away and we got to have a lot of fun with these guys! We started the shoot in the early evening by Leuty Lifeguard Station on Kew Beach and let these two crazy kids frolic by the waves. I think this sea gull wanted to keep a close eye on the situation because he kept circling Nina & Igor while helping with our beachy theme 🙂

Once the sun set, we hit the streets for a little night shooting… My fave!!! Dave found this cool little alleyway with green, purple and yellow paint which coincidentally went perfectly with Nina & Igor’s gear! Dave actually scaled the walls to hold the video light for me on this one… You’re the best Spidey, I mean babe :).

I absolutely LOVE these shots Dave grabbed in the street. Especially the picture he caught as the streetcar went by… Ahhh, I’d love a shot of us like that… any offers?? 😉

Ohhh, I remember when we took this one. We were all drooling because we shot it right beside the most amazingly yummy smelling Italian Restaurant, it makes me hungry just thinking about it.

Thanks for giving us a great excuse to hit the Beach and for the AWESOME eshoot guys, we really had a blast with you both! We’re sooo looking forward to photographing your wedding this year- Can’t wait!
