Tina & Ben – 02.09.2017

Love is a temporary madness, it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion, it is not the desire to mate every second minute of the day. That is just being “in love”, which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Those who truly love have roots that grow towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms have fallen from the branches they find that they are one tree and not two.

Courtney & Nick – 18.08.2017

Lock eyes with me so I can see into your soul,
Press your lips against mine so I know your taste,
Lay naked with me so I know your insecurities,
Sing a song to me so I know the tune of your heart,
Dance in the rain with me so I know your every move,
Marry me, so I know you’re all mine.

Stephanie & Jason Mini-post – 29.07.2017

obsession is not love,

infatuation is not love,

when someone ignores you

or treats you poorly, carelessly,

or with indifference

that’s not love-

that’s lack of love,

for yourself, for trying to fill

your missing pieces with theirs

but when someone is whole

and you are whole

and you act in kindness and benevolence, vulnerability

through strength,

love becomes an exchange

with another person-

and that is

the truest form.

Faith & Dan – 09.10.2017

So I officially beat my record of most images shot for a wedding! When I combine my amazing 2nd shooter Lee Westons images to mine, it makes a total of 7500 images captured! It was nearly impossible to quickly skim through them all to find my favourites to add to a blog post but after over two days, I managed to locate most of my favourites! Enjoy this not so little preview from Faith & Dan’s gorgeous wedding at the Four Seasons in Toronto on Sunday!

*Ps – Not many photos of the ceremony as we weren’t allowed to shoot during the ceremony.
