Rebecca and Jordan found a perfect house in Leslieville shortly after we first met. We started their session there and had a great chat, its always nice to break the ice without the camera to start and ease into a photo-session. The Leslieville neighbourhood in Toronto is a great up and coming area with tons of exposed brick, and murals. It lends itself perfectly for photos and I couldn’t think of a better place to start off their toronto engagement photography.
I feel in love with this part of Toronto, I’ve been there a lot for work in the last month or so but it was great to have the time to walk around on foot and soak in city living on Sunday nights. From the small pubs and coffee shops to the back alleyways Leslieville is extremely photogenic and I’m so glad Jordan and Rebecca got me out there.
From Leslieville we moved to the Don Valley Brickworks, and this place has more character than I every could have imagined. In my head I was expecting bricks, and a refurbished event venue which is great, but I was more than happy to incorporate a giant flower, a wooden waterfall, and killer light into these photos.
I love it when couples do something a little different. Leslieville and the Brickworks were a perfect fit for Rebecca and Jordan because they like city living, and the urban feel fits perfectly. It isn’t for everyone and that is okay; everyone is different, and I really encourage my couples to pick a location that has some meaning to them. That way you don’t just end up with a set of pretty photos but years from now you’ll look back and think “oh yeah remember when…”
I hope you enjoy these Monday morning photos and as always I love to hear your comments either at the bottom of this post or facebook! Enjoy!
