I have known Alicia for a few years now, and she is one of those people that is just always so genuinely friendly and supportive of others, it’s no wonder Andrew was drawn to her.  Andrew, by the way, is a pretty good catch himself :)

After following all of Alicia’s wedding planning posts on Facebook and making my recommendations and suggestions along the way, she finally posted about looking for a wedding photographer, and I believe my exact response was, “Hi Alicia.”

Andrew’s father performed the ceremony at Faith Family Church in Ajax, and it was raining as we left, but we decided to take the risk and stop at Lakeview Park (Oshawa waterfront) for some photos. Many of them were done under the overhang of a building, and under the gazebo, but I just love the overcast lighting – a photographer’s dream!

Speaking of dreams, how in love are these two? They couldn’t stop smiling at each other throughout the ceremony. Hopefully they’ll allow me to photograph them again in October, is it possible they’ll be even happier then??  ;)

Heidi found me through a random search when she noticed that I had recently photographed a wedding at Kingsview United Church in Oshawa – where she and Kyle planned to tie the knot. Well, I am so glad she did – what a gorgeous day! Every bride should be so lucky to have such beautiful weather, it was just perfect! This was my first experience photographing at the Oshawa Golf and Curling Club, where we went for photos and their reception. The grounds are stunning, so many mature trees and great views. I definitely hope I get to work there again soon!

Heidi and Kyle were fantastic to work with, besides a request for a big family photo they basically told me to work my magic. I hope they love their images as much as I do :)

I had such a great time with Leah and Mike when we did their engagement photos, I knew their wedding would be fantastic! Although I have done a few engagement and family sessions there, this was the first time I photographed a wedding at Lakeview Park in Oshawa. The Jubilee – the venue at the waterfront where the reception was held – was gorgeous! A hidden gem, for sure. Definitely check it out if you’re getting married in Oshawa!

The boys were pimpin’ in their fedoras and Mike with his cane (which doubled as the sheath for his sword, as you’ll see in the slideshow). When I arrived for Leah’s “getting ready” images, her hair was done, and makeup was at the final touches stage – perfect timing! We did most of the groomsmen and bridesmaids photos prior to the ceremony – it’s always a nice time saver so we can capture more full bridal party and bride+groom photos during the time before the reception.

After dinner and many heartfelt and entertaining speeches, the party began! A full dance floor makes for some fantastic, and sometimes hilarious, images.
A fun way to end the night :)

Congratulations Mike and Leah!
