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.

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.

Jacklyne and Regan’s Engagement session – MPH Photography – Toronto

Friday, December 20th, 2013

These two lovebirds are so much fun, they are constantly laughing and joking with each other, its great to watch them interact with one another, I could just sit there and watch them all day, and think they should have their own reality tv show, I’d be hooked,lol.

We had a fun session and although it was cold, these two braved it out and we managed to get lovely shots of them together being themselves and just having fun.

We can’t wait to photograph their wedding on March 29th and I know it will be a day full of laughter and funny stories and good food. They are not only preparing for a wedding but at the same time opening up a new restaurant on March 1st called Irv’s Pub, near Carlton and Parliament and we can’t wait to go and try out the food and enjoy the friendly atmosphere that follows these two around to wherever they go.

I have no doubt that their marriage and their restaurant will be a tremendous success and we wish them all the happiness in the world as them embark on 2 new adventures in their lives.

Thanks for being such a fun couple, and we are so looking forward to photographing your wedding at the end of March. For now here is your sneak peek from your engagement session.

Vee and Raf engagement session – MPH Photography – Toronto

Sunday, June 2nd, 2013

Did you ever meet a couple that when you first saw them, you knew they were meant to be together, like they were made for each other. Well, besides hubby and I,lol, this is what I thought when I first met Vee and Raf. It’s almost as if they were the same person, with 2 distinct personalities,lol. The way they talk, and look at each other and even when they argue, you can see the love that they have for each other.

I was so excited to meet this couple on a cold day in November, as Vee  is my kind of girl,lol. She’s cute and funny and sweet and kind and a fashionista and beautiful inside and out and she loves feathers, I absolutely adore feathers,lol. We met at Cafe Frappe on the Danforth, and right away I knew they were a perfect fit and was excited at the prospect of photographing their wedding. We talked and laughed and connected and formed a bond that very first meeting.  As we planned their engagement session, I knew it was going to be hard waiting for months to photograph these two.

The day finally came though and we were off to photograph Vee and Raf in their beautiful home. Not only is their home beautiful, but they have a forest for a backyard that includes a beautiful private waterfall. It was so beautiful and although it took a bit of a trek to get there, it was well worth it, even with Chris falling 2-3 times, fortunately neither Chris nor his camera were hurt,lol. I wanted to stay there for the rest of the evening and even though we had planned on changing outfits a few times, it just seemed to fit that both of them were in white and surrounded by greenery and water falls and just beautiful landscape. It was the perfect place for an engagement session, and it was even more meaningful as this is the spot that they both love and go to all the time. They knew these woods and did daring things that I never expected them to do. They got behind the falls, and climbed big logs that were suspended off the ground, and sat close to edges of little cliffs, and Vee did it all in style while wearing a pair of gorgeous heels! I loved it!

Our bride to be also happened to appear on one of my fave shows, Keasha’s perfect dress on the slice channel, and of course that’s where Vee found her perfect dress. I loved watching this episode of Vee and I totally agree with the groom’s sister Joanna when she said Vee is a classy and sophisticated and sexy, that pretty much sums it up. Here is the link to that episode, but don’t send the link to her fiance Raf,lol.

http://www.slice.ca/videocentre/video.html?ID=v&releasePID=GKGs7u7MrkwbGxwwSmtSwe5xUhgXXf3c#keashasperfectdress/video/full+episodes Actually Keasha and I have become friends thanks to Vee, but that’s another story and I hope to be posting images on my blog from my session with her and her family soon.

This is one wedding we are definitely looking forward to photographing, and we know its going to be a very special day filled with lots of joy and laughter and good times.

Thanks again Vee and Raf, it was so much fun hanging out with you and photographing you both in your own special secret escape, and next time, we’ll definitely come for a swim when the pool is ready.

Can’t wait for your wedding day!!!!

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

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

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… 🙂
