Vanessa and Tony married at historic Casa Loma castle in Toronto

Casa Loma Castle in Toronto OntarioVanessa and Anthony say “I do” at Casa Loma in Toronto. This wedding reminds me of a Disney animated movie. A princess finds her prince charming in a foreign land, brings him back home and they marry in a castle. To top it off, she was frozen in her elegant backless wedding gown.
I first met Vanessa at her sister, Natalie’s wedding in Kelowna, BC. Natalie married Dan at Summerhill Winery. You can check out their wedding gallery here. That was a few years ago now; I can’t believe how much time flies. It was sure nice to see Natalie, Dan and their families again. I felt less like a hired professional, and more like an old friend.

The first time I met Anthony was in New York during their engagement session. Ever since Vanessa asked me to come to New York, I had been dreaming of all these epic photos I was going to create. Of course, nothing goes according to plan. Nevertheless, the three of us were able to create some awesome photos. Check out their Engagement gallery. I think it’s pretty cool.On this trip, I was lucky enough to have the extremely talented, Ragi Labib with me. Ragi is an amazing photographer in his own right, and he brought with him a creative eye that is refreshing, and yet familiar. I love how we work so well together. See some of Ragi’s work on his website.
Ragi has the benefit of being married to one of Kelowna’s premiere makeup artists – Saara Labib. Saara didn’t do Vanessa’s makeup, but she did do Natalie’s makeup at her wedding in Kelowna, a few years ago. Small world. Saara has her own website as well. If you ever need a team effort, these two are the perfect fit.mom pins boutonniere on son
