Headshot session

Friday, September 27th, 2013

I have so much to catch up on. It’s been so busy and I just haven’t had the time I usually do to post about our sessions.

I know this year will be another busy one and I will try to keep up as best as I can.

For now, I wanted to share some images from a headshot we did with a super lovely lady named Christina. We went to her beautiful home and decided to do the session in her big backyard with her beautiful pool. We were all so tempted to jump in it at the end of the session.

Thanks for having us over Christina and for being so easy to work with, hope you enjoyed your experience with us as well as the lovely images we captured of you.

Mary and Rob’s family

Saturday, September 14th, 2013

I know Mary through my good friend Mona, I photographed the baptism of her cousin and Mona’s brother’s little boy about 6 years ago (here is the link to the baptism http://mphphotography.net/blog/2010/10/adams-baptism-mph-photography-toronto/). So I was really excited when she contacted me and asked to set up a session for her and her beautiful family. The kids were little when I photographed them at the baptism, they were the Godparents and they were so cute and I always told her that I would love to photograph them as a family and I’m so glad she came to me as I knew we were going to have a wonderful time at our session.

This year’s weather hasn’t been so great, but we managed to pick a good day except that they were renovating the parking at the beach that we had intended to go too, it didn’t matter though, we parked farther and all walked and had a nice time chit chatting and catching up since we last saw them a few years back.

The beach was pretty empty too which doesn’t usually happen but because of the renovation, not many were there, so we had the place to ourselves basically.

If the water wasn’t so cold, I would have made them all go into the water for some fun shots, but of course it was freezing and the kids couldn’t take it, they went in for about five mins but that was it, they kicked some water at each other and quickly got out of there as fast as they could,lol,  maybe next year we’ll do a session and finish off with them jumping into their pool.

We had such a great time with this family, it was like hanging out with old friends, and they feel like they are part of our family, not only because Mary is greek but because we got along so well and her kids are so sweet and nice and I want my kids to meet them as I think they would all become friends. Hopefully in the near future we can set up something for all of us to get together and hang out.

Thanks so much Mary and Rob for being super fun and super awesome. We really enjoyed our time with you and we look forward to doing it again one day. Enjoy your sneak peek.

Veronica and Raf’s Wedding – MPH Photography – Toronto

Friday, September 6th, 2013

This couple oozes love, they are so meant for each other, and just so right for each other and I was excited to photograph their wedding and their engagement sessions, as I knew we were going to have a blast. I was right!!!

The engagement session was awesome, that night was just perfect as we hiked to a private waterfall in their backyard, their sneak peek from there session is here http://mphphotography.net/blog/2013/06/vee-and-raf-engagement-session-mph-photography-toronto/and then came the wedding and that was just about the most fun I’ve had at a wedding in my life. From the moment we got to their house, to the first look (which I love to photograph when couples opt to do this) to St. Andrew’s church and the Crepe Kitchen and then the reception which was held at the beautiful Harbour Banquet and Conference Centre  in Oakville, the fun never stopped. We laughed and really celebrated that love that these two share.

I kept hearing from everyone during the reception how much these two are so perfect for each other and how they are so nice and kind and loving to others, and I’ve experienced that myself with them, but to hear it from their family and friends was a true testament to their love and what a wonderful couple they are.

Veronica looked stunning and Raf took such loving care of Vee all night as they began their life as husband and wife and it was so sweet to watch them nuzzle and be all romantic and just enjoying their special day.

We had a blast with the wedding party and fell in love with each and everyone of them, and want to thank all of them for being so awesome to work with.

Vee and Raf, we were honoured to be a part of your wedding day and we loved capturing all the moments of the day for you, we love you guys. Without further adieu here is your much awaited sneak peek.
