Guy and Mary Flor’s Wedding – MPH Photography – Toronto

Saturday, November 14th, 2015

We have had the pleasure of knowing Guy since he was in highschool with my husband, and there were 5 guys that were all best friends and would hang out all the time and once my hubby and I got together at age 17 I joined the group. We have had so much fun together over the years, so many wonderful memories, so many birthdays and Guy came to all our weddings, and now that its his turn, we couldn’t be happier for him.

Guy has always been the sweetest and most awesome person, not a mean bone in his body and a very talented musician as well. We know his whole family, his sweet loving parents and his beautiful and adorable and kind sisters Anna and Tina and who could forget Gio, he was a fresh teen when we met him and now he has grown into a wonderful young man,  I know Guy was instrumental in helping shape Gio into the fine young person he is today. Guy has been such a great friend, he has such a wonderful heart and is always caring, you can always count on him and I know just about everyone feels the same way as we do about him.  We knew once he found his soulmate that that girl would be one special bride. We love him so much that we asked him to be the Godfather of our first child George, he was the natural choice and I knew he would be a great influence on all our kids and an inspiration to them as well as someone who will be there for them and help them out whenever they need.

When Guy told us that he was getting married, we were so thrilled for him and then he asked Chris and I to photograph their wedding, it was truly an honour that he wanted us to capture his special day for him.

We were so happy to meet Mary Flor and right away we knew she was a sweetheart and felt that these two would make a beautiful couple.

We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day, and there was so much joy and lots of laughter all day long. We photographed them both getting ready at the Delta East and then we went to Highway Gospel church for the ceremony and after the formals we went to Ellas banquet hall, which is the same hall we had our wedding reception at, so it was nice going back there again.

What a wonderful wedding, truly it was such a beautiful occasion and it was filled with lots of love and so much happiness, old friends and family getting together to celebrate this special couple on this special day and we are blessed to have been a part of it.

Guy and Mary Flor, we wish you both all the love in the world, may God bless you both and we love you with all our hearts, thank you for choosing us to capture your special day and celebrate your love with you,  we wish you a life full of blessings and everlasting joy and happiness.

Renaissance by the Creek – Sandra & Krzys’s Wedding – MPH Photography – Toronto

Friday, June 5th, 2015

Sandra was so nervous as she peered outside the front door with her curlers in her hair as we were walking up to the house on Saturday morning. She told us she was nauseous and if she thought about it too much then she would toss her cookies so to speak, so we hugged and I reassured her that everything was going to be wonderful and it would be the best day of her life.

We had so much fun photographing this couple during their engagement session. We did a winter e-session and although it was a bit cold out, we got some beautiful shots of these two in and around the Caledon area. We drove and would just stop wherever we thought would be nice and I would find spots and shoot. I love these types of session, they are always so exhilarating and different as you never know where you will head off to next or what the shot will look like but these two were up for anything, so off we went. Here is the sneak peek from our engagement session with them Sandra and Krzys’ Engagement session

Months later, the day of the wedding and I couldn’t wait to photograph these two young people getting married. The girls were getting ready and Sandra’s dad just constantly kept me laughing all day with his cute comments and giddy behaviour, and I could tell her mom was nervous and was doing all she could not to cry as her baby girl was getting married in just a few hours.  The maid of honour is Sandra’s aunt, Adelaide,  but I would say they are more like sisters, and she took her job seriously as she took such good care of Sandra all day long,  you could see the love these two have for each other, and Adelaide’s speech (after dinner) made me cry and was very touching. The MUA Rachel was amazing and I was loving the way she was making the girls look, they all looked gorgeous and the bride to be looked especially beautiful, her hair and makeup was perfect and I knew her soon to be hubby would be so excited when he first saw her.

The groom was nervous too of course, but full of smiles as the ceremony started at St. Peter’s http://www.saintpetersparish.com/ which is such a lovely church and time just flew by, and before they knew it, these two were married!

We went to Adamson Estates in Mississauga for the formals, and its a pretty place but they are strict about time, and only gave us 1 1/2 hrs and exactly 90 mins later they asked us to leave. Since we had time to spare before the reception we decided to go down the street to Scaddington park in Mississauga and managed to find some parts that had no bird poop,lol,  and took some more pretty pictures there as well. During the formals we usually have a bit more time to get to know everyone a little bit and we absolutely fell in love with Sandra’s grandparents who proudly told us that they have been married for over 55 years, they are such a cute couple, and so sweet and dear, and such an inspiration, I kept telling my husband that I want to be just like them when we get older.

The reception took place at the Renaissance by the creek , where they were very gracious to us and we all had a great time celebrating the love of these two people.

I want to thank Sandra and Krzystof for trusting us to photograph their special day, it was a pleasure spending the day with you both and we wish you all the love in the world as you begin this new journey together. Thank you to their family and friends who made us feel extremely welcomed and like we were family. We so enjoyed our time with all of you.

There were so many beautiful images that I wanted to share in this post, I had a hard time picking out my favourites but I hope Sandra and Krzys love the way we captured them and are hoping they will treasure these special moments caught on film forever. Enjoy your honeymoon in London and Paris Mr & Mrs. Stanko!

Sandra and Kryz’s Engagement session – MPH Photography- Toronto

Friday, March 6th, 2015

I am so excited to photograph Sandra and her fiance Krzys’ wedding in May, I was excited before but but now after their engagement session, I’m even more excited. These two are so cute and fun and adorable together. We had a wonderful time just driving around and stopping at random locations and just photographing them loving each other wether it was in the middle of the road or on a snowy trail. No matter where we went, it was fun and adventurous and an experience that none of us will ever forget.

It was a bit cold, mostly when the wind hit, but it was the mildest day of this winter so far and perfect for a photo shoot. I love that we went to Caledon to do the session as it was so pretty and the whole city is like a winter wonderland, I don’t think there was a spot that wouldn’t look nice in pictures.

Sandra and Krzys, we really enjoyed our time with you and it was great getting to know you even more now and we are definitely thrilled to be photographing your wedding, we are so looking forward to your big day and celebrating with you. I know it will be a spectacular day filled with lots of love and happy people, family and friends celebrating the love that you two share.

Thanks for making this session so much fun to photograph, we hope you like your sneak peek.

Samara and Ari’s Family session – Toronto – MPH Photography

Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

This is our 4th time photographing Samara and Ari’s family, and I love watching Stella and Leo grow and I love helping this family make memories with wonderful images to look back on as they get older.

We couldn’t have picked a better day to do this session. Not hot and not cold out, and very nice to take a walk in as we did with Samar and Ari and the kids. The kids were having a great time, and Stella loved posing for the camera and made us laugh and it was so cute to hear her giggle,  I always enjoy seeing young energetic children enjoying life to the fullest without a care in the world. Oh to be young again. I love capturing their smiles and their anticipation or excitement at what’s around the corner. Blow some bubbles and you got children squealing with joy and just having the time of their lives.  Hopefully with some of these images, they will remember how much fun they had.

It was great seeing your family again Samara and Ari, and we were delighted to photograph you all again, we had a great time with you all and wish you and your family all the best. Enjoy your sneak peek.

Marcela and Oscar – Toronto – MPH Photography

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014

I met Marcela through one of my best friends, in fact, Mariana was one of my bridesmaids but she lives in Mexico where she met Marcela. Somehow Marcela is the one that ended up moving to Toronto and Mariana introduced us through facebook and I’m so happy she did as Marcela is such a sweet and funny and lovely girl. I was thrilled when she wanted me to do a session with her and her husband. They have been married 5 years and wanted to celebrate this anniversary with a photo shoot. I definitely think its the best way to celebrate any anniversary, and I love photographing couples in and around Toronto and with the fall colours, it was just like being in a candy store, I kept finding beautiful spots to photograph them in.

We met at sugar beach, at the Queens’s quay and walked around and laughed and enjoyed ourselves as I photographed the two of them. You could see the love that they have for each other and its always a pleasure photographing people who are totally in love with each other, their love always translates through the lens and the images captured are always beautiful.

I feel as if I have known Marcela for a long time, perhaps its because Mariana told me so much about her but I’m so happy that she lives here now and we get to hang out and get better acquainted, now if only we could get Mariana to move here too, then we would be the 3 amigos,lol.

Hope you enjoyed yourselves Marcela and Oscar, and I hope you like the sneak peek.
