When the opportunity comes knockin' to partner up with some of Toronto's lovely leading lady friendors, you answer. Heidi, of Heidi Lau Photography and Christina of The Cocoa Cakery asked if I'd like to jump on board and help them dream up and execute an organic, romantic vow renewal for husband and wife, Lauren and Matt. Why yes, I would!
Having been married for five years myself, I felt very connected to this opportunity, I wanted to create something that felt truthful and sentimental, intimate and informal. We piled a ridiculous amount of loveliness into this shoot with layered details, special vintage pieces, expressive song lyrics and even saw some sparks fly as our real life husband and wife couple brought a magic energy that only real life lovers could.
Here are some of my favourite shots of the day (although who could choose favourites with Heidi at the lens). And I'm excited to share that you can check more of them in a full feature over on Wedding Sparrow, one of the prettiest wedding websites around.
