food trip

Have you tried President's Choice's Red Velvet Cheesecake? Anyway, we were grocery shopping and we found this in the freezer section. Looks promising, huh?
Looks amazing from the side too...
It's cheesecake good, but is it red velvet good? I'm not sure... It's a good dessert either way and for only $10.00. It matched perfectly with my lemon green tea =)

We also made a trip to the latest burger craze in Toronto. The Burger's Priest. It's making such a buzz, we wanted to try if it's as good as everybody says it is. Of course, the breaded portobello mushroom reminded me of the heavenly shack stack burger from Shake Shack. Looks promising too...
The verdict: 4 stars out of 5. I gotta say, the crunchy fried mushroom with cheese was a tasty bonus though somehow, I remember Shake Shack's burger as being tastier than the beef that came with this burger. I could be wrong since it's been awhile since I had a shack stack. Overall, it's still good burger and I'd probably come back and buy from them again. Good job, The Burger's Priest!

Bakerella is one of my favorite bloggers and definitely a baking inspiration. Of course, my version of cupcake pops are nothing like hers, I mean, just look at these cute heart-nosed sheep!

Our easiest and most natural client yet. Look at those cheeks =)


Ann and Jamie

We wanted to shoot by the airport to incorporate Ann and Jamie's long distance love. After an interesting (and short!) ferry ride to Toronto's island airport, we found picturesque spots that also featured Toronto's beautiful skyline. Ann and Jamie came prepared and colour coordinated to show the motif for their spring wedding. We're hoping to do a Jersey themed shoot for their next session.

Jacky and Luc

What a beautiful silhouette! Our first real experience of shooting in the rain was with our dear friends, Jacky and Luc. The couple had rented a beautiful vacation home in Muskoka and invited us over for a few shots for their summer wedding next year. It was challenging, but prompted creativity and lots of garbage bag improvisation. We had so much fun! Too bad I didn't get a chance to take a picture of behind the lens shots. =)


A shot of Jacky's stunning engagement ring.

Anne and Gene

From Niagara to Downtown Toronto, photo sessions with Anne and Gene made us appreciate even more the beauty of living in Canada. This fun loving couple are visiting from the Philippines and decided on an impromptu engagement session while they're here in the city. Though used to tropical climate, Anne and Gene braved the cold and showed their enthusiasm during their photo shoot. Here are some sample shots. I love how the photographs captured their sense of humour and easy-going personalities =)

Jillian and Ricardo

Isn't the fall season such a great time to shoot engagement photos? Jillian and Ricardo are getting married next year and their engagement session couldn't have been timed more perfectly! Here are some samples from their engagement photoshoot.

photobooth love

We are back! This is the view we had to leave behind =(
Anyway, did I tell you our website is up?? It's the longest url you'll ever find but hopefully straightforward enough to help you remember it =) We've had quite a few updates on it already including a password-protected link to client galleries! I'm really excited about the quick turn around and how quickly we were able to set it up, though I'm sure just like anything, there are still a few quirks that need tending. If you run into errors or lag, please give us a shout and we'll try to resolve it as quickly as possible. We want it to be as user friendly and easy to navigate as possible.

Also, we love the idea of a wedding photobooth! It adds a vintage, backyard wedding-y (haha) feel to modern weddings. With cool props and backdrops, it entertains not only the guests, but the photographs make an awesome souvenir/wedding guestbook as well. Look at these fabulous sample shots from DIY photobooths!

A and I are currently looking into setting one up and offering it to our clients in the near future. Tell us, would a photobooth be something you'd be interested in???

relaxing by the beach....

I just realized we left in such haste without actually telling anyone where we're going =). If you haven't already heard (from Facebook!), we are currently vacationing in the beautiful island of Bermuda! We loved Bermuda so much from our last trip in June, we've come back sooner than we planned. It's sooo beautiful here!
We will be back soon to upload pictures, and hopefully get more engagements out of the way before we come back to our real work. *sigh* Wouldn't it be nice if we could just go on vacation all the time???

Thanks August Empress for the cool background!
