A fun day at a junk yard

Everyone who knows me, knows that I’m a huge fan of the “unusual” and I couldn’t be more stoked when Kayla came to me with the idea of doing an engagement shoot at a scrap yard! This is definitely quite rare as most don’t open to public access, but luckily her fiancé, Michael, owns one downtown — Cooper’s Iron & Metal — a family-ran business founded in 1946, has remained one of the largest independent processors of recycled metals in Toronto. While most people see this as a junk yard, I surely see this a local photographer’s playground with tons of cool colors and unique textures to play with! And what was even more fun, was how Kayla was able to inject a unique flair by wearing some cool custom coveralls herself! Although, I surely don’t think she has big intentions of becoming a “scrap wife”! 😜

Many thanks to you both for bringing me along to my ideal playground! 😆 My warmest congratulations on your engagement! I can’t wait to capture your wedding day!

Iris + Yesung Wedding

Keep it simple. Keep it honest. Keep it real. That was the story of the day for both Iris and Yesung. Sometimes, we don’t need to complicate life more than it is and going through their wedding day was a kind reminder of that. There were no bridesmaids, no groomsmen, no big speeches, no fancy wedding cake or even a fancy venue to celebrate in, but yet Iris and Yesung celebrated their love in the most simple way with friends and family in a luncheon at the Wok of Fame buffet. Good food and some live music is all you really need! I was humbly reminded that the true beauty on a wedding day is simply found between the lines of the vows you made to each other on that day…. “To love and to cherish, for better or for worse, in sickness and in health, for richer or for poorer, forsaking all others, till death do us part.”

My warmest congratulations to you both!! Thanks for making us part of your special day!
