A quest for redemption

Amila and Roshan celebrated their 10th year wedding anniversary down here in Toronto where it all began! I think I had “redemption” written in the back of my mind all throughout this photo shoot! The redemption was not for myself, but on behalf of their original wedding photographer, who failed to deliver photos of both their engagement shoot and their very own wedding day! In a word, they simply “disappeared” after their wedding day and was never to be seen or heard from. My heart broke for this couple’s story and so here I am, trying, hoping to erase & fix that appalling experience for them.

This couple now lives in the small humble town of Kincardine, Ontario. But I think what’s cool about all this — is that Roshan made it a special surprise for Amila, as he kept this idea a secret from her the whole time! She had no clue they were doing this special 10th year anniversary photo shoot! Her eyes just lit up when she found out as soon as I met them in Centre Island Park, in downtown Toronto! Ironically, this is where they had their original engagement photo shoot done in the past!

I know these photos will not replace the distasteful experience you guys had in the past, but I sure hope I brought some joy back to those memories you lost. Thanks again for sharing your story with me! Happy 10th year anniversary! My warmest congratulations to you both!

Jessica + Eric Wedding

So here we are at the tail end of Spring, hangin’ out in Ontario’s wine country — Niagara-on-the-Lake. Couldn’t wait to get back here as I just love the sights of vineyards left and right! And when Jessica and Eric told me they were having a vineyard wedding, I was just super excited! They had their ceremony at the Cave Spring winery and their reception at the chic & lovely Inn on the Twenty! Boy, do they have great food!! Needless to say, I think the best highlight of the day for me would be the traditional Korean Paebaek ceremony! With Jessica coming from a Korean background, this traditional ceremony was originally intended as a way for the bride to pay her respects to the groom’s family. It was my first time experiencing that and it was so great to see all the colors and practices that tradition brings!

Once again, my warmest congratulations to you both! Thanks for making me part of your special day! 🙂
