It’s hard to describe the feeling we felt when Jaclyn said she wanted to choose her wedding date to when we were available. It was certainly an honour to hear. She is a wonderful human being, kind, ambitious, dedicated and graceful. I have been lucky to bond with her over the years during her journey through numerous beauty pageants and she has been one of my top supporters throughout my photography journey.
Sasa and Jaclyn’s wedding day was perfect from start to finish. These two are fantastic together and were genuinely delighted throughout the day to be husband and wife. They represented the respect they have for each others families and cultures. It was a morning filled with laughter. Two ceremonies that oozed with emotion. And a reception that is one for the books!
Hugs and kisses to you both! I hope you enjoy reliving your wedding day as much as we enjoyed being there to capture it!
Sara and Tarek radiate happiness and joy, as did their families throughout the day. We began with getting ready coverage in the late afternoon. While Sara was waiting for Tarek to ring the door bell she was smiling from ear to ear. It was a celebration the moment he arrived along with musicians and a gorgeous classic vehicle. After an incredibly romantic portrait session. we headed to the reception which immediately began with dancing that went well into the night. All day it was apparent that these two would be forever surrounded by love and community.
Here are just a few of my favorite images, continue on to see a slideshow video of the highlights from the day.
You would assume that sharing images as a wedding photographer would be easy. Just choose your favourites from throughout the day and post a blog, share a photo on Facebook or publish to Instagram. I must say I can’t agree less! I have the pleasure of meeting such amazing couples and am honoured that they all have an appreciation of my passion for this art and, because of this we create images that I am proud to share. The task of going through the thousands of photos I’ve taken on a wedding day and choosing my favourites is time consuming because I can’t just pick a handful (plus I’m o.c.d just a bit). What you may not always see are the beautiful family photos or images throughout the ceremony. To me they are all perfect because I never take an image I don’t like. So many moments, from smiles to tears to romance and laughter. In the end I try to choose the images that, to me, bring back memories of the day at it’s truest.
When Terry and Josh first came to Ferah and I they were in the middle stages of planning their wedding. From the moment we met they let us know how much they loved our work, heard nothing but good things and trusted in us to take control. We chat for a bit over coffee and gave them our best advice on how to make their day go smoothly and I was so happy to see the gratitude in their faces when our meeting came to an end. I couldn’t wait to spend the day with them because I knew it would end up being a perfect day. Below are just some of the images that I hope you two look back on from year to year and remember each and every moment.
As I sit here and think about this wedding I remember the absolute perfection of the day. Fun loving bridesmaids in the morning and the perfect light in a room set aside just for this day. Seeing Jaclyn walk down the aisle towards Chad waiting for her with complete anticipation. He had a big smile and his eyes couldn’t be taken away from his bride. Standing side by side these two look like soul mates, made for each other. From their looks to their personalities they complement each other perfectly.
We’ve decided to start adding something new to our blog postings. You’ll see a video which highlights the day as it went it. With beautiful portraits to candids in between we hope you are able to relive this day or feel like a guest at the weddings see have the honour of capturing. Keep scrolling through the blog to see our favourites as well!
Caitlin and Kevin’s wedding day was a relaxing day that went off without a glitch. The overcast day allowed me to shoot with the backdrop of the Canadian Club. Ending the night off with a beautiful decorated hall at Ciociaro club just tied the day together with this fun loving adorable couple.
Blair and Rick’s whole day exuded the same warmth that the bride and groom do, a sweetness and light that makes for a phenomenal celebration! Although it was a beautiful spring day we also photographed indoor at the Ciociarro Club. At a certain time of the day the natural light pouring in through the windsor creatives for magical feel.
I have always loved working at Sprucewood Shores Estate Winery, and Ann and Jared’s wedding was no exception. It has been one of the most popular locations for weddings in Essex County. I love the proximity to the beach, the indoor/outdoor ability to shoot and most recently, what they’ve done to cater to weddings being hosted at their location. Creating an indoor reception venue that still does justice to the feeling of an outdoor wedding. Despite the unseasonably crazy heat we had been getting around this time, the day stayed cool and mother nature made sure that everyone was happy. It’s wonderful when couples host their entire wedding at the same location. Family and friends together all day sharing cocktails, laughs and dancing the night away.
Keeping it classy at the Low-Martin Mansion with these two.
It’s hard to what in particular made this particular wedding so extraordinary. Perhaps it was the extreme closeness of the entire family and the joy you could feel in the air. Maybe it was the bride herself, her particular joy, beauty or her smile always ready to laugh. Possibly it was the groom, with his calmness and the way you could just feel that he was ready for his future. I truly think that it was all of the above, and so much more. These two are such spectacular people separately, and together they are a brilliant combination of brains, beauty, and brightness. It was an honor to have captured this day.
To tell a beautiful wedding story you need beautiful light, warm but not-too-hot weather, a touching outdoor ceremony, an afternoon spent on a gorgeous property and a vibrant reception. We are so glad that the bride and groom for arranged for us to spend that afternoon at the Paul Martin House for their portraits. It was lovely to see how relaxed they were and confident in us, and I hope these do not disappoint!
Kelsey and Michael are both vibrant, cheerful, and humble. It was a great pleasure to spend the day with them and their families. From the first emails we exchanged, to their engagement session, I knew these two were going to be a treat to work with. Thank you both for choosing me to photograph your wedding. It was a great pleasure.
This session with Rob & Kayla happened on what was probably the most beautiful day this fall. We were racing with the light and only had about 45 minuets before darkness set in. I have to say this was a race well worth it!
A glimpse at our intimate session with Sabah & Kushtrim….
Canada is full of hidden gems. One of those gems is right here in Ontario. With the air so fresh you want to inhale it all day long, clear blue waters and cliffs that give you a spectacular view of the sunset, not to mention the trees that are endless. How could I not want too photograph this beautiful couple there. We drove the 5 hour drive to Northern Ontario making it just in time for the sunset, with a little under one hour to shoot before the darkness took over. Thank you mother nature for your beauty!
Make sure to check out my YouTube channel where we are just getting started with some awesome videos!
For Hussein & Fatima’s session we headed to our favourite place to photograph, the Canadian Club. We had your typical Windsor spring weather (or what we’ve come to know as spring around here) a little rain, cold wind and maybe a few sun rays from time to time. Regardless of the unpredictable climate we could count on one thing, and that was for these two, who are clearly deeply in love to brave any element to be with each other. These two bring out the best smiles in one another. Their adorable connection is what most people would call “couple goals”. While their religious ceremony to celebrate their marriage was done on a previous day, today was the day to celebrate the rest of their lives together and what a kick off it was!
We had the pleasure of photographing Glen & Cherine on one of their visits to Windsor from their home in the Greater Toronto area. It was a beautiful evening as we took a stroll through one of our gorgeous parks here in Windsor. Here are some of the highlights.
A summer evening with this beautiful couple.
Troy & Nevianna have been long time friends of ours. We’ve shared many laughs, made some awesome memories and we’ve had the pleasure of watching their family grow over the years with their two beautiful children. Not long ago I got a text from Nevianna asking us to be a part of their wedding ceremony in a couple weeks. I was happy and a bit surprised at the suddenness and she told me that they’ve decided to elope and wanted us to capture their wedding vows. It was truly an honour! So, on a gorgeous Wednesday evening we met them and their witnesses at one of Windsor’s river front parks and got to see them say their vows to one another. Everybody got teary eyed as the sun was setting and these two said I do. It was so romantic and just perfect for them. It brought back the simplicity of what two people uniting really means. No elaborate wedding gown, no fancy shoes or suit and tie, just the two of you, God and a little sun. It was one of the most magical one hour wedding sessions I’ve attended/captured.
I know you both have thank us but we wanted to thank you both from the bottom of our hearts for including us in this magical evening!
Jamaica illustrates everything that I love about nature. If you know me you that I love the sun, temperatures over seventy degrees, the wind, and any island in general. When I go to these places I realize how much I miss it. I miss the light. I miss how the sun sets last for what seems like hours. Living in the city and trying to capture the sun set is like a rush to pure darkness. On this beautiful island the light fades so slowly to sunset that there is ample time to take advantage of it for portraits.
It was wonderful to travel back to the Grand Palladium in Jamaica. This was a spot Ferah and I visited a year ago for another destination wedding and said we would definitely be back. It was only icing on the cake when a couple like Diane & Scott decided to bring us down there with them. Fun, warm, and welcoming, Diane & Scott created a destination wedding for their guests that was intimate, inviting and the perfect getaway. The love these two share for each other and for each others families is something that makes them the wonderful people they are. What a pleasure it was to capture that romance in a heavenly place. Their complete trust in me allowed the day to go by very smoothly. They were willing to do whatever it took to capture the stunning scenery around them and capture it we did! Spending nine days with these guys was so much fun and a trip that will go down in our books as one of the most memorable ones. Thank you for making us a part of it all!
The connection these three had was just adorable. The session went by so smoothly and before we knew it we were already done. This was a our first time meeting Andrea & Matt in person and my instincts were right. Amazing couple, enormous amount of love for each other and a connection that rivals any great love out there. From the way they held each other, to how they laughed at the same things we knew that these two had definitely found their soulmate and soul-pup. They’re already great parents to a fur baby 🙂
Here’s just some of the highlights from our session together.
Winter has been long, very long. As much as well look forward to the warm sunny days there is a certain kind of beauty our winters bring. Weather it’s a snowy day or a foggy day you can find beauty in anything. Kristen and Mike’s wedding was no exception. It was a heavy foggy day that lasted all day. We were lucky enough to be out the in the county to experience it and it was beautiful. Between the “accessories” Mike had and Kristen’s Allure blush ball gown the day
was a perfect representation of the two of them. Here are some highlights from their wedding day.
Jaclyn & Jeremy is another wedding we have been anxious to share. Mr. & Mrs. Smith couldn’t be any sweeter. When we first met Jaclyn it was at her sister Laurie’s wedding, which was another wedding that will stay in our memories. From time to time I’d see Jaclyn and she was always talking about our work and one day she would be book us to photograph her wedding. Well, that day came and it was such a pleasure. Jaclyn is one of those calm, sweet and caring people you just can’t help but love and her and Jeremy compliment each other perfectly. We had a short fall here in Windsor (or at least it felt that way) but one of those beautiful fall days was Jaclyn and Jeremy’s wedding. Waking up in the morning we were ready to go, mother nature blessed us with a gorgeous day and who more perfect to get married on this day than Jaclyn & Jeremy!
As some of you may already know we are the official photographers for the Miss Universe Canada South Western Ontario contestants. This is our second year being apart of the competition. Although we have photographed the winners and contestants of Miss Universe Canada since 2011 it became official last year. This year was well planned out and we worked along side Tony Gereige owner of In the C’hair & Saci Salon, Taylor Vigneux owner of TVigneux Hair & Make-up and the regional director Sonny Borrelli. I can’t express how great it was to work with such an amazing team of stylists. We photographed 22 girls in one weekend and we got to know each one of the contestants and I don’t know how to put into words how amazing these contestants are. Canada truly has some amazing your women that are beautiful, intelligent and brave on so many levels. It takes a lot of courage to put yourself out there for the world to see. We wish all the contestants a successful year and we are confident that Miss Canada will be of these beauties! Here are their final headshot. Please feel free to leave your words of encouragement for these beauties. I look forward to seeing them move on to the next event where the top 5 will be chosen and head to the Nationals in Toronto. We hope to work with each one of you again in the near future.
This year their fundraiser will be held at the Water’s Edge in Windsor. Check back with us here or on our Facebook page where we will share more details of this event.
It was truly an honour to work with this organization and show the world these beauties. Everyone is unique in their own way and the fact that we are able to capture this on camera is such a rewarding feeling for us. Everyone has their signature they leave in this world and we are here to help you capture it.
If you are interested in having your own portrait session please contact us for more details.
Welcome to the wedding of Katie Gibb and Frank Minardi. We have been waiting far too long to share these photos but we are so happy to show these to everyone. This beautiful wedding was incredibly elegant with no detail missed. After spending a 14 hour day with these two we didn’t want to leave the reception as it was the party of the year! From the perfect invitations done by Palettra, the customized decor by Elegance by Design to the beautiful dress by Monique Lullier with a perfect bow made just for Katie by Monique herself. I could go on and on discussing every detail of this wedding but I’m going to let the photos speak for themselves. I’m confident you’ll see how important this day was to these two as well as to their family and friends.
