It was a cold evening last winter, when a message popped up on my phone. It was Christina letting me know she was on her way. We chatted about her wedding, her fiance Peter and how they had built their lives in Toronto. I was instantly captivated.
Christina so charming from the start, I noticed that she was always smiling. A real kind smile, that showed how deeply she cared to host such a special event with her family and friends present. I knew I would love to work with her & Peter. Months zoomed by and we met up at High Park for the engagement session. I was so excited to meet Peter after hearing so much about him. I instantly felt the love and kindness shared between the two of them. Sometimes when I work with couples, I need to butter them up to get comfortable in front of the camera. Well that was not needed. They embraced one another so naturally, laughed, giggled and he would kiss her forehead when I’d turn around and look for a new spot to shoot. I knew working with these two on their wedding day would be special and unforgettable.
Christina & Peter overcame many obstacles with grace and hosted one heck of a celebration. It was memorable, emotional & so very momentous. Family and friends flew in from around the world, and you could feel their joy to witness such a great day.
As an artist, I felt that somehow this day stood out to me in black and white. So I decided to tell their story solely in monochromatic images. I couldn’t imagine a more timeless way to look back on such a special wedding. Without further ado, here is the wedding of Christina & Peter.
