Diamond Brilliance

Back in October, I was asked to photograph a stylized creative shoot entitled Diamond Brilliance, for The Wedding Planner Magazine, December issue.  This was such a fun experience! I was able to meet and work with some wonderful people, and I am so pleased with the results! Pick up a copy of the magazine at Chapters or Indigo :) Our spread starts on page eighteen! Woo!

Chris and Tamiko - engagement

From a photographers standpoint, Chris and Tamiko are pretty much the ideal clients.  They are sweet, funny, easygoing, creative, and good-looking to boot.  They came prepared with their own (awesome!) ideas, and were also willing to try whatever I asked of them.  Tamiko chose to have the photos done in and around the beautiful McMaster campus, where the two originally met, and I think they turned out fabulously! (The photos I mean. But, as a couple, they turned out pretty fabulously too.)
Hope you enjoy the photos! Can't wait to shoot their wedding next summer!

Sept. 20, Wedding

As soon as we drove into the parking lot of this venue, I knew this would be a great wedding.
It was almost like we weren't in Toronto at all, totally surrounded by beautiful, towering trees, and with a breathtaking view of the lake. The bride was equally gorgeous, in her elegant lace gown and royal purple shoes (serious style points!).  A huge wedding party (18 people total) made for some stunning shots. So happy I was able to shoot this wedding under the lead of the fab Wedding Editorials team! What a great way to end my summer :)

Hooray! Wedding photos! From yesterdays beauuuuutiful wedding at the Eglington Grand!
This is the first wedding I've shot under Claudia's  lead, and it was oh-so-fun!
The bride and groom were so great! They were totally enamoured with each other, and it was such a joy to be able to be a part of their day!

Also. Look at that dress.

Another Engagement :) (Mentoring Session)

Hi folks!

More engagement photos!  This was my 3rd mentoring session under Claudia Hung (and my fave so far!)
These guys were so much fun to shoot! They were totally relaxed and at ease in front of the camera, and were clearly having a great time and enjoying each other, which makes my job as a photographer so much easier!  I'm super excited to shoot their wedding in a few weeks, with Claudia and her team!

Engagement! (Mentoring Session)

     For those of you who follow Hannah Belvedere Photography, you'll know that a couple months ago I was given the awesome opportunity to train under the fabulous Claudia Hung, an award winning wedding photographer. (I think I actually squealed the first time she emailed me about it!)
Claudia has been an incredible mentor; she is patient and kind, but continues to challenge me and push me past my comfort zone, and I have learned so much from her even in the short time I have been training. If you haven't already, check out her website: www.claudiahungweddings.com

Anywho! Here are some engagement photos from one of the mentoring sessions last month! Enjoy!
