When Shana first described to me her dreams for a winter wedding, I was so excited to see how all of the sparkle and glamour she dreamed of would come together. As a Toronto wedding photographer, winter weddings mean it’s often too cold to go outside to play – and it can take a lot of creativity to get a look that is bright, fun, and airy.

Alessandra and Michael have a vibe that is classic and old school – one of those cool-as-a-cucumber teams who make you know that all is well as long as they’re together.
