I love shooting at The Doctor’s House. It’s a truly magical place. Located within the quaint little town of Kleinburg, The Doctor’s House weddings are like stepping into a fairy tale world. The sweet little houses, cute doorframes and vibrant colours are simply a photographer’s dream. Toronto wedding photography can be fast paced; it can be rushed, crowded and at time – downright hectic. Don’t get me wrong… I thrive in that kind of environment! But every now and then it’s nice to just step back and spend a sweet summer morning in a quiet, relaxed and absolutely serene location. Oh, and the best part? When you have some pretty special people to share that with – like Mani and Tazeen – it’s the icing on the cake.
It started when I got a phone call from a true gentleman; Mani was recently married and planning a reception for family and friends. He was looking for someone to tell the story of his love for his new bride on his reception day and I was thrilled for the chance to work with him. I met him and Tazeen the morning of their reception; Tazeen was putting the finishing touches together and her family watched on his amazement at her pure beauty. With his beautiful bride in hand, Mani, Tazeen and I wandered the grounds and started on our mission: to tell a story. They held each other close, whispered some secrets, and smiled with the intensity of two people deeply in love. Spending a morning with these two was an outstanding experience and I was honoured to have the chance to capture their lovestory.
