T&L // The New Look

New year, new look, new beginnings.

It's that time of year when things change. The fresh promise of a new year ahead allows us the freedom to plan for the future and reflect on our past. 

 
 

As we jump into January Trevor & I are excited to move forward with a new logo, website and blog. It's been great to comb through all our images, do some editing and work together to create a new brand and style we think truly reflects our work. Browse through and let us know what you think - we hope you love it as much as we do. Oh, and be sure to stay tuned as we have lots of exciting announcements and changes on the horizon that we can't wait to share! 

May 2016 bring you all of the freedom, happiness and love that you're searching for.

xo,

The Zarbs // FAMILY

There's nothing better than a baby who loves the camera. Graham won me over instantly as he flirted with from the moment we met. With that smile and those big blue eye's he's sure to be a handful!

The Zarbs have been with us since their wedding back in 2010, and since they tied the knot I've been luck enough to work with them for three more family portrait sessions. 

Recently they welcomed a new addition to the family and we had a blast re-connect for this little bean's first professional portraits.
Check out this adorable family in their Toronto home:

 
 

Old News?

As it goes when you move from one place to another, sometimes you just can't bring everything with you.

Unfortunately, our new site doesn't support the content from our old blog, but we've moved over a few posts for you to enjoy below. In the mean time, please stop by our portfolio page, or browse through one of our featured weddings to get a well-rounded sense of our style.  

Cheers,

Siobhan & Craig // WED

I remember a past bride whispering to me on her wedding day... watch out, she's next!  So naturally, we were thrilled to hear from Siobhan when Craig proposed, and even more excited when we heard their plans included an amazing downtown location, a grand celebration and a softly lit, winter ceremony in the early evening.  

Theirs was a winter wedding filled with class, style, rustic decor and a lot of ambient love.  The ceremony and reception were both held at The Burroughes downtown - the perfect spot for these two to host a wedding & party all their own.  From the early-evening ceremony to the after-dinner ice cream cart, every detail was covered and the party was a hit.

 
 

Venue: The Burroughs, Toronto, ON
Dress: Rivini from White in Toronto
Shoes: Jimmy Choo
Ring Pillow: Sweet Nature Designs:

Gillian & Karl // WED

Jill & Karl are a special kind of pair.  Not only are they perfect for each other, but they are truly sweet, caring, thoughtful individuals - the type of people that you'd like to sit down and share a glass of wine with.  Or, failing that - perhaps one (or three) of Jill's delicious homemade cupcakes! 

When we were asked to join them and capture the love, energy and excitement of their Toronto post-wedding reception we were thrilled to be there to cover the celebration.  Having officially tied the knot on the sandy beaches of Aruba a few months prior, their day at Scarboro Golf Club was to be one filled with friends, family and - oh yeah - a second chance to show off that amazing dress!

It was easy to feel the love in the room and see the joy on the newlyweds faces - a true reflection of their amazing personalities the place was packed with warm smiles, big hugs, lots of laughter and some heartfelt speeches.

 
 

Michele & Greg // FAMILY

I absolutely love having the opportunity to work with past wedding couples again to commemorate new life events.  Seeing Michele & Greg again to document their excitement & love as they anticipate becoming new parents was no exception.  They will be having a spring baby, and are waiting until delivery day to see if it's a little boy or girl, which I just love.  So much anticipation, excitement and love rolled into one event.

We opted for a cozy session in their amazing home on a snowy winter day.  I like incorporating the home into these shoots, it's a great record of this slice of time and will always have more meaning and history to the couple as the years pass by.

 
 

Kate & Luke // WED

A calm lake breeze falls brushes your face as you glance up at a deep blue sky.  It seems somehow appropriate that there's not a cloud in sight as these two high school sweethearts move forward together as husband & wife.  Gathered round are family and friends - a tight knit group of people who have come together to celebrate this pair and support their new adventure.

Kate & Luke are such a genuine, sweet couple - from the moment we met we were drawn to their excited outlook and couldn't wait to hear more about their plans.  Well, as expected things came together flawlessly from the amazing attention to detail the romantic late-night lantern release.  It was a wedding filled with love and a sense of pure, sweet happiness by the lake at Cobble Beach.

 
 

Here's wishing you both years and years of love and happiness!

Emily & Vern // FAMILY

I'm catching up on a little Blogging and I just had to share these sessions from the adorable Emily & Vern.  We photographed their lovely, relaxed wedding back in 2012, and we were thrilled for them when they contacted us to share that they were expecting.  From bump, to baby these sessions took us from parks to nurseries, with bubbles, sun, bunnies and blankets.

 
 

Jenna & Scott // WED

Every once in a while there comes along a couple who has their own ideas about how a celebration should be carried out.  They are excited and thoughtful and want to maximize the time they can spend with guests while offering a unique experience for their friends & family.  Enter Jenna & Scott's spectacular day-long event! 

With a heartfelt, sun-lit morning ceremony to kick off the festivities, followed by toasts and mingling in the garden the celebration was off to the perfect start.  Afterward, family stayed to join the new couple for an intimate lunch complete with all the delicacies you'd expect from the chef at Langdon Hall, setting the tone for the day as personal and intimate.  In the early evening things kicked up again as everyone was invited back for cocktails in the garden, then a spectacular dinner filled with mingling and oh-so-much love. 

 
 

The evening was beautiful with an outdoor heated patio for those who needed a break from the dance floor and couches in the yard for relaxing.  Not only did Jenna & Scott make this day truly their own, but they found the perfect venue to keep everything onsite and help them float seamlessly from one room to another throughout the day.  It was a elegant affair with personality.

Filled with lots of love and surrounded by everyone who is important to them, these two began their lives together as husband & wife.  It was a special day with a tight-knit group of friends (including some familiar faces for Trevor & I) and a strong sense of family.  A perfect celebration for this sweet and charming duo.  Congratulations Jenna & Scott - here's to years of love & laughter!

Margot's // MATERNITY

All I can say is Margot rocked it.  She came to me looking to commemorate her second pregnancy - to mark the occasion with some personality, funk and edge.  Her request couldn't have made me more excited! 

The goal was to capture some unique photos that ran the gamut from edgy to pure and calm with the city as our backdrop.  From start to finish she brought attitude, style, love and all kinds of positive energy to her session.  We started off with some urban street shooting in the east end.  Afterward it was over to Cheery Beach to bask in the sunset glow lakeside - from high heels to sandy toes here are a few of my favourites that showcase the many sides of Margot and her bundle-to-be.
