Miranda’s family – MPH Photography – Toronto

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

It’s always a pleasure photographing a return client and a friend. Miranda is such a wonderful person, sweet and caring and so giving and she’s come back several times to us to photograph her family and this time it was the extended family and we had so much fun with all of them.

We choose a beautiful park and it was a beautiful day and everyone was so happy and cheerful and full of joy and laughter. It was fun photographing them as well as hanging out with them and the whole family made it such a wonderful event that I don’t think we’ll ever forget.

Miranda’s parents and sister and brother joined us this time and I think Miranda prepped them before hand as they all knew exactly what to do and would come up with ideas and locations and even the kids would pose and smile perfectly, it was such a perfect session.

We love capturing families and the love that they share and it makes us so happy to think that our images will be hanging on their walls for them to enjoy for years and years to come. They will smile at the images and remember the wonderful day we had together and that’s why I love what I do.

Thanks Miranda and her family, we had a great time with all of you and we hope you enjoyed yourselves as much as we did.

Four Seasons Hotel Toronto – MPH Photography – Toronto

Monday, August 4th, 2014

We had the lovely opportunity to photograph the executives at the Four Seasons hotel in Toronto head office. and it didn’t hurt that their offices are located in such beautiful surroundings so we decided to use what was available as backdrops and as you will see from the images, they have so many beautiful spots to photograph everyone in front of which made it even easier to photograph these beautiful people.

It was a pleasure working with each person and they were all a delight and lovely people. We really enjoyed our time photographing everyone and not only were we well taken care of during our time there but they made it fun and definitely one of the best headshot sessions we have ever done. They definitely make me want to stay at a Four Seasons hotel next time I go away if the way they treated us was any indication of how everyone acts at the Four Seasons, its definitely a first class company.

We hope everyone at the Four Seasons enjoyed their time with us as well. We are truly honoured and humbled that they asked us to photograph them and want to thank all of them for being so wonderful and lovely to work with.

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.

Karla and Danny’s family beach session – MPH Photography – Toronto

Wednesday, August 28th, 2013

Last time I met Karla and Danny and Mateo, they didn’t have a little girl in their family, and neither did mine, and now we both have precious daughters, so I was excited when they contacted me and wanted me to photograph them as a family of 4 now.

We took them somewhere they have never been before in Toronto, the Bluffs, and I think they fell in love with this location and have a feeling they will be going there again. It wasn’t as busy as usual but we decided to wander in a bit and find some spots to get started. Isabella had just finished napping and I don’t think she was in the happiest of moods for our session but Mateo had fun from the beginning and he helped as much as he could to make his baby sister laugh.

We tried a few different spots and then ended up on the beach and although the water was cold, Mateo had no problem putting his feet in their and splashing around a little bit. Isabella took a little bit of time to enjoy the sand but by the end I think she liked the new sensation of sand between her little toes.

Karla and Danny it was great seeing you all and meeting you new baby girl, and we loved hanging out with you and capturing your family. We hope you had fun and we look forward to seeing you all again soon. Enjoy the sneak peek.

Lourdes’ Family beach session – MPH Photography – Toronto

Tuesday, August 27th, 2013

I don’t think I’ve postponed a session as many as this one but for one reason or another it wasn’t quite working out but I knew that when the day finally came that we would meet up that it was going to be awesome and I was right.

I was so excited to meet Lourdes and her daughters and hubby, they were excited and ready to start and we jumped right on in. The girls acted as if they were seasoned models already and took direction so well and I just loved photographing them. We had tons of fun and we laughed together and talked and played and just had a wonderful time during our session.

We had perfect weather by the beach and I loved the colour that this family chose to wear, its one of my favourite colours lately and I knew it was going to look great in the images. The best part was the love that these two sisters share, it touched me so and they just wanted to spend every second together and Olivia and Alexandra are going to grow up being the best of friends I can tell.

Lourdes and Richard, it was wonderful meeting you all and thanks so much for being so enthusiastic and adorably sweet and beautiful. We really enjoyed photographing you all and are looking forward to doing it again in the near future. Enjoy your sneak peek.
