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.

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!!!!
