Nina & Igor’s Wedding Photography

Happy New Year everyone!!

We have soo much exciting stuff happening this month so stay tuned to the blog for all of the updates and details of what we’re doing and where we’re off to next! We’re excited to be photographing Julie and Paul’s wedding tomorrow and then we’ll be in gorgeous Mystic Connecticut taking part in an awesome photography workshop with some of the best photographers in the business! Oh- and don’t forget all of our sweet destination weddings we have lined up… Yey for winter!!

As we all know, November can be a little unpredictable in terms of weather, so it was with great delight that we woke to clear blue skies and mild temperatures the morning of Nina and Igor’s wedding. It’s amazing to think that only a month ago it was possible to head outdoors with just a wedding dress on!

Regular readers of our blog may remember Nina and Igor’s engagement pictures we shot at The Beaches in Toronto. We had such a ball shooting Nina and Igor because they’re so easy going and willing to try out whatever ideas Charlotte and I threw at them. I think it helps that they’re both talented wedding photographers too! Check out their work here.

We began the day at both of their homes in Streetsville, shooting the preparations, the details of the day as well as some pretty bad ass shots of the guys. Check it out…

How funny is Igor’s proposal book?! Cool right… In case you can’t figure it out, it says “Wheel U Merry Me?”

Their ceremony took place around my old stomping ground, Meadowvale at the Merciful Redeemer Parish. It’s a gorgeous, modern Catholic church, with lots of window light and a stunning high ceiling.

It’s always so cool to be at wedding ceremonies to witness the look on the groom’s face as his bride walks towards him, and believe me, Igor was no exception. You can see the look in his eye shows a deep love for his wife to be.

The priest was hilarious – cracking jokes throughout the ceremony, which made for some great moments of laughter.

After the ceremony we all jumped in the limo and headed down to the University of Toronto for a little photo fun. The guys did a little warm up to be sure they didn’t overexert themselves!

There are some super sweet locations scattered through U of T, Nina and Igor even hooked us up with some we’d never used… like this awesome hallway. Nice right?

Love this shot above. A nice quiet little moment together.

If you’ve looked around the web at wedding photography at U of T, you’ve more than likely seen this door. It’s very cool eh.

As you can see below, Charlotte loves taking advantage of the gorgeous architecture with this shot!

After we’d finished up the shoot, we headed over to The Old Mill. We did some cool twilight shots of the gorgeous couple in front of the building. Nina also works in Marketing at Coke, so she broke out a couple of bottles for this shot. We decided to light it a little more dramatically for this shot!

On the way inside, Charlotte had Nina stand against the cool wall paper to create this beautiful portrait.

Their reception took place in Guild Hall, which is one of the nicest rooms at the Old Mill… it faces the back of the building and has huge windows that open onto the patio.

Thanks for an awesome shoot guys. We loved being part of your wedding day 🙂
