Sarah & Steve are the definition of the perfect bride and groom. They stayed true to themselves; not letting other people’s wants or expectations curb how their wedding would be. They kept it simple: an intimate coffee shop wedding at Balzac’s Coffee Shop in the Distillery District in Toronto. Their love for each other was evident and they wanted to maximize on time spent with those who came to celebrate and my heart nearly exploded when they elected to do a first look and all their portraits prior to the ceremony. We weren’t rushed. We didn’t have a schedule. Exploring the cobblestone alleyways and abandoned buildings around the Distillery made for such a relaxing afternoon and they were just as relaxed yet excited leading into the ceremony. They got engaged on a trip to Iceland and when researching before they left they came across my work and the photographs Matt and I took from our trip. When they returned, they immediately contacted us asking if we’d photograph their wedding so it’s only fitting that you listen to some Icelandic music while you enjoy their wedding images.
