Tara Graham – Photographer » Oshawa | Whitby | GTA | Wedding and Newborn Photographer

Friends’ weddings are some of the most fun, yet stressful, to photograph. Of course I want all my clients to be happy with the images I create for them, but with friends there’s an added pressure, because it would be super awkward at future get-togethers if they hated them.  (Thankfully that has never happened.)

Rich and Tara had lots of awesome details incorporated into their day. I loved the peacock details and colours – and everything around us seemed to fall into place and enhance the theme. The hotel lobby where we ended up doing family photos had awesome yellow chairs (complementary colour to purple – the colour the bridesmaids were wearing), and at the Distillery District there were some awesome blue designs on one of the outdoor walls that matched Tara’s shawl and shoes!

I find it hard to narrow down my blog selections when I know the subjects personally, so I’ll add some comments throughout the images below. Enjoy!

 

Custom Chucks. Awesome.

Just some of the cutest kids ever. Can also be seen here, and here and soon here (once I blog baby Ava’s newborn session).

The inside of Tara’s clutch – how cute is that?

They saw each other before the ceremony, but they kicked me out of the room. This is when they let me back in ;) Rich+Tara-0153_WEBPINIMAGE Rich+Tara-0217_WEBPINIMAGE

Goofballs (below, in case there was any doubt).

Then Grandma interrupted our photos and made everyone cry.

How awesome is Tara’s dress? Perfect for a rainy day like this, as we didn’t have to worry about a long train, and it showed off those awesome heels!

If you look closely at the cake photo below, you can kind of see that the cake topper figures are also grabbing bums. Rich+Tara-0331_WEBPINIMAGE

Tradition, smadition. These two walked down the isle together, after each of their families also came in together. It was a bit squishy (Rich has a large, and constantly growing, family), but such a great break from the norm.

Seeing their AMAZING cake for the first time. Tara’s sister made it for them, and they weren’t allowed to see anything until this reveal. This girl has some serious talent. Check out the next image for a detailed explanation of each layer. And contact Holly here to talk about your own cake needs!

Seating charts on records, beer glasses and custom coaster party favours, and who doesn’t love a game of madlibs?

Finally have good enough internet to look at these properly! They are so amazing! Congratulations again and congrats also to Tara G for the amazing photos! x

Laura and Sean were married on a beautiful summer day in cottage country at Eganridge Inn in Fenelon Falls. These two are a super fun couple – their first dance had the crowd cheering wildly. Laura’s brother started out playing a traditional slow song and was then interrupted by the DJ as Laura and Sean busted out some funky dance moves – so fun to watch!
