Vanessa 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.
