Mercan & Ali's Kurdish Wedding- Chateau Le Jardin, Woodbridge

Hello Friends,

With the wedding season in full swing, I have found a small window of time to share this wedding which is close to my heart. Mercan & Ali started looking for a photographer when there was an issue with the original photographer they had booked for their event. But like they say, sometimes things happen for a reason and they found their way to me and I am so happy they did. This wedding holds the record for the longest coverage we have provided to a couple with 16 hours in total. It was important to Mercan that we captured every moment of her special day and I think we have succeeded. So many amazing moments with these two who trooped it through a very cold April day so we can get all the photos I had hoped to capture for them. Well worth it! This is also the largest wedding we have shot with over 800 guests. Their wedding was at the beautiful Chateau Le Jardin in Woodbridge. We took their couple's photos at Richmond Green Park in Richmond Hill. Every moment for me is special and I am so honored to have been given the opportunity to capture their incredible event. Thanks also to Andrew Grant who was the second shooter for the wedding.

Daddy-Daughter Photo Session- Kariya Park, Mississauga

Happy long weekend friends! Long weekends are the perfect time to spend time with family, and in that spirit I wanted to share Ziana's daddy-daughter session at Kariya Park in Mississauga, which mom Preeya arranged as a father's day gift. Can't get enough of her smile!

Eneda & Mark's - Liberty Grand, Toronto Wedding

Hello Friends,

Here is a rewind back to the last summer, where I had a chance to photograph Eneda & Mark's wedding at Liberty Grand in Toronto. We started the day out at Old Mill Inn in Etobicoke. It was a day filled with lots of emotional moments filled with tears an laughter, and lots of Albanian dancing.

I am happy to be given the opportunity to capture this couple's special day and I wish them all the best in their future.

Love,

Canan

Safak & Cihan's Pre-Wedding Portrait Session- Guildwood Park, Scarborough

Hello Friends,

Blogging is underway in full force! I have been dying to share this pre-wedding portrait session of Safak and Cihan with you!

I had shot a similar session for one of Safak's friends (Gamze & Erhan) and we had been chatting and planning this event for months. Finally on an amazing November day I had one of my most amazing sessions at Guildwood park in Scarborough. One of the biggest advantages of shooting on a day other than your wedding day is it allows you to have a stress-free session without worrying about your itinerary and as a result it provides you with more options of locations because you are not limited to locations near your venue. All of our full day packages can have the option of having 2 hour of your time allotted to a separate day of your choice solely for your portraits.

I am so happy with how these photos turned out, there are so many favorites! I hope you enjoy them as well.

Esther & Danny - Madsen's Greenhouse Chapel Wedding, Newmarket

Hello Friends,

Esther & Danny is one of the sweetest, kindest couple's I know. They had a September wedding at Madsen's Grennhouse Chapel in Newmarket in an intimate ceremony and reception. The most unique details for such a one of a kind bride. Esther made customized gifts for all her bride's maids, and beaded the sparking touches to her dress along with her sister. I loved every minute of capturing this day, thank you to them both for having me capture their special day.

Enjoy!

The Trillium Resort and Spa is a beautiful setting for a wedding and it was wonderful to capture their wedding along with their friends and family. Wishing them both all the best!

Sara & Nima Pre-Wedding Photo Session- Scarborough Bluffs, Toronto

This is part two in Sara and Nima's wedding adventure! In my previous post I shared their engagement session at The Distillery District. This is their pre-wedding session. Some of it was taken in an open field in North York. The rest was taken at the Scarborough Bluffs, which is one of my favorite locations. We also shot a highlight video during the session to share with their family and friend on their actual wedding day. The final part of their story will be next: The wedding day in Tehran. Be sure to check out their highlight video below!

Sara & Nima Engagement Session- Distillery District, Toronto

It has been such an amazing journey with these two. It started in a coffee shop where I met Sara and Nima for the first time. They were going to have their wedding in Tehran but were residing in Toronto. We planned a concept video in photo shoot in Toronto so it would be ready in time to air at their wedding in Tehran, as well as an engagement session which I happy to share today. It was a warm rainy day at the Distillery District, but after a few minutes of drizzles it all cleared to lead way to a great photo session.

Can't wait to share the rest!

Oluyomi & Deniyi - Kariya Park + &Company Resto Bar Wedding Day

A beautiful couple inside and out. I loved every second of Oluyomi & Deniyi's wedding celebration at &Company Resto Bar in Mississauga. It started with their intimate portrait session at Kariya Park and followed by their ceremony among their closest family and friends. It was dancing all through the night as the reception took off in the evening. Thank you to you both for having me capture your special day!

It was so easy and effortless shooting Katherine and Matt at their engagement session at Don Valley Brick Works this past summer. They are so easy going, genuine and friendly couple. I can't wait for their wedding this August.

Ayisha & Daniel Intimate Mississauga Wedding

I'm back with another wedding from this past summer. I introduce Ayisha and Daniel and the photos that document the day that celebrates their union. It was such a beautiful day for this intimate and chic wedding at Port Credit Memorial Gazebo in Mississauga. It was a gathering of close family members and the Imam to join these to in their journey of a lifetime together. It goes to show we don't always need a lot of the bells and whistles to make for the perfect setting to celebrate love and capture timeless photos.

Elizabeth & Nat's Milton Country Wedding

It was instant chemistry when I first had the pleasure of meeting Elizabeth & Nat at our coffee shop randevu. They were warm and friendly, and I could tell It would be easy for me to capture the love they felt for each other. On their wedding day it was sunshine, a serene country location and a beautiful bride that all comes together to make a photographers dream come true. Now with a bundle of joy on the way, I wish these two a lifetime of happiness!

Jessica + Kamyar's Wedding - Tehran, Iran

Hello Friends,

I am excited to be able to share this gorgeous Australian bride and her Persian prince on my blog! Unfortunately due to religious restrictions many of the weddings I shoot in Iran can not be shared in a public forum.  I am also unable to share photos of their reception to respect those that might not want their photo shared.

This session has some of my favorite bridal portraits. It was an absolute pleasure being able to capture the love these two share.

Kaila & Peter's Engagement Session- Don Valley Brickworks, Toronto

Hello Friends,

I first got into contact with Kaila on Facebook. We set up our first meeting the in their home in Mississauga and after passing a few tests and getting Peter's stamp of approval in my taste of motorcycles, we were set. It was such a job to photograph them in love! The 2 hours just flew by. It was also my first e-session at the Don Valley Brickworks. Its the perfect mix of an urban vibe and rustic architecture.
