When Alicia and Phil approached me to photograph their wedding at Carl’s Catering The Glen in Brampton, I suggested a way to increase their comfort level with both me and the camera would be to do an engagement photo session. This gave us a chance to get to know one another and for them to let their guard down over the course of the session. The benefit of an engagement photography is also finding out what you like and want as a couple and testing the limit on comfort levels.

We decided that I would shoot the wedding in a predominantly photojournalistic style where I could capture candid shots encapsulating the emotions of the day. The fact we were shooting as it happened vs being staged meant the couple could relax and forget we were there. Family compositions and those of the bridal and groom parties were the only group photos we took and I was able to take advantage of the fantastic weather and utilize all of the outdoor spots at Carl’s Catering The Glen in Brampton.

Highlights of the day for me included the pre-event for the desert which was adorned with staff dancing with cakes, sparklers and the choreographed dance which must have taken a lot of rehearsal.
