Danielle & David’s engagement session – MPH Photography – Toronto

I have known Danielle for years, and had the pleasure of photographing her with her niece years ago and then I also photographed her sister as well, so I was more than thrilled when she contacted me and asked me to photograph her wedding in June.

Besides being beautiful inside and out, Danielle is a cute and sweet and funny girl and her and David are so adorable together and we had so much fun during their e-session. We had to postpone it a couple of times due to wether and then when we finally met, it wasn’t the best weather as it was wet snow that kept falling, but eventually it stopped and the sun even came out at the end.

We drove around downtown Toronto and stopped at a few spots and we had so much fun. At the end we went to a new skating rink with the skyline as the background and it was beautiful, even though the ice rink wasn’t skatable it was still pretty and we made the best of it and Danielle even wore heels on the ice.

These two are so wonderful and I can’t wait for their big day in June, I know it will be an amazing wedding.

Thanks again Danielle and David, we had such a wonderful time with you and are so looking forward to your wedding day, but for now we hope you enjoy the sneak peek from your e-session.

p.s.  I may have to add some more images soon as there were just so many that I loved… 🙂

    I love the pics! Love your creativity with settings and staging. So casual, and fun yet elegant at the same time. Of course I have watched one of the subjects grow from a little babe into a gorgeous young miss! (only an Ant can say that.) My fave? I pick the one with the letters.

    Great shoot….

    You both look awesome but Danielle in that shade of blue looks fantastic!
    I like the last three photos for the ‘you guys’ factor but can’t help thinking
    about the rusted old bridge with the yellow center line divide.
    It’s also a good shot and could be a metaphor…
