Leanne + Jason – {Married}

A beautiful wedding with lots of detail and fun! =)


Seriously, this is the first time I saw a bride got ready early AND help out in make up! =)


And on the groom’s side …



Meet the very fun and energetic wedding party! =)

Leanne + Jason

What was the most memorable moment of your day?

Leanne:  It is so difficult to choose just ONE memorable moment on our wedding day as there were so many!  If I had to choose one, I would say that walking down the aisle at the Christian ceremony and exchanging our vows was very memorable.  Everything was just so beautiful, calm and perfect to the point that it made me cry and I NEVER cry:P

Jason:  The Christian Ceremony it was perfect, and when we were all entering the hall for the first time. 

Any advice for future bride/grooms?

Leanne:  My number one advice for future brides & grooms are – do what makes both of you happy and don’t listen to anyone!  I thoroughly enjoyed the wedding planning process as I did everything that represented us as a couple and not take other people’s opinions into consideration.  It is very easy to get caught up with other people’s suggestions and opinions on what your wedding should be like but if you stick to guns and do what YOU want as a couple, you will end up very happy with the results.  That’s what happened with our wedding.  We did everything OUR way and everything we saw that day was simply us!

Jason: stay strong, be happy and take it in it a goes so fast.

Funniest memory from your wedding day?

Leanne:  My funniest and you could also say most annoying memory of my wedding day was that people kept stepping on my wedding dress and made me lose some of the buttons on the back of my dress!  My wedding dress had an extremely long train and even after putting it on a bustle, it was still long enough for people to keep stepping on it.  Each time a person did that, I would lose a button on the back of my dress.  It got to the point where I had no more buttons to put my train on a bustle so I ended up changing into another dress during the reception.  It didn’t end there.  Because my second dress had a little train as well, people did the same thing with my second dress!!!

Jason: all of the joke we had with the bridal party.

If you could do it all over, would you change anything?

Leanne:  If I had to do it all over again, I would totally eat more of the yummy food that was served at our reception.  We had very delicious h’orheurves at cocktail hours, a 10 course Chinese meal, an amazing variety of sweets including a candy bar that I could barely remember eating as I was just so caught up with the moment!  I remembered people warning me that you tend to forget to eat at your wedding as there is just so much commotion going but for me, I think I was just lazy to reapply my lipstick LOL

Jason: Nothing god gave us the day and I would not change a thing.

Monica + Henry – {Married}

It’s been years since I first met Monica, who was still an university student having her co-op term in the same company I worked for.  And when she asked me to be the wedding photographer for her and Henry, I felt tremendously honoured and that just brought back so much memories! =)

Really, expressions like this are PRICELESS to me!!


Time for picking up the bride people!  And our sisters are well prepared for putting up challenges! =)


We then headed to the BEAUTIFUL venue of Old Mills Inn.

Lu + Austin – {E-Session}

Congratulations to Lu and Austin, who will be tying their knot this September.  I must say, these two are soldiers!  Not only they’re having their session on one of the stormy weekends (and it’s melting hot), but they managed to get both their engagement session and pre-wedding pictures done on the same day! 



LuAustin_20100815141349LuAustin_20100815144022-2luaustin_20100815143324luaustin_20100815181244 luaustin_20100815181309 (2)

The light right after the storm is just amazing, even though it was just for a very brief moment!  Luvvvve it!

LuAustin_20100815183208LuAustin_20100815181202LuAustin_20100815181154LuAustin_20100815181702 LuAustin_20100815182354-2LuAustin_20100815184047

One of my fav! =D


And now … onto our pre-wedding photos from earlier of the day.


I know we’re not supposed to stay under the trees while there’s a storm.  But how can we say no to this?  (Kids, don’t try this yourself!)


One of the most common questions we have when scheduling a session is … “what if it rains?”  Truly, it doesn’t matter.  =)

And this is another favorite of mine.  love love looove…..!!


Lu and Austin, we’re absolutely looking forward to your wedding day!  It’s going to be GREAT fun!!!

******************* Behind the scene *******************

Nothing makes us more motivated about our work than having such enthusiastic couple.  While they’re battling sizzling temperature and rain, we are …

right there with them.


When they’re enjoying themselves, we’re too … =P


And when they’re changing … uhem … no, we wait.  Speaking of which, I envy Winston’s outfit for the day. =)


My most comfortable moment from the session. =D
