Toronto City Hall Wedding Ah, Yentle & Geoff. Two of the most kind-hearted, sweet individuals you’ll ever meet. I won’t say too much about their wedding since they’ve so wonderfully captured the essence of their big day in the words to follow, but I will say that their love is the kind that could bring a smile to even the most hardened hearts (Mr. Grinch, I’m lookin’ at you). The twinkle in their eyes and glowing glances portray impossible amounts of breathless adoration and happiness filled to the brim. Just recounting it brings back the awe and amazement I felt as I released the shutter with each new smile-inducing… Keep Reading
I am so honoured to announce that last week, Olive Photography was featured in the popular wedding blog, ‘Style Me Pretty’!! I remember visiting Style Me Pretty *so* often when I was planning my own wedding, and I could only hope that our big day would turn out even half as beautiful as the posts on that blog. It goes without saying, then, that I am beyond excited about being featured there! A huge shout-out and thank you to Joel and Chantelle whose love radiates so beautifully through these images, and whose smiles are beyond contagious. * Check it out! * Joel & Chantelle Engagement Session on Style Me Pretty
What a gorgeous Sunday for a family event! Julian’s parents asked me to photograph the reception portion of their son Julian’s 1st Communion – what a nice day. The sun shone brightly and it felt like Summer. The patio doors were wide open and guests enjoyed themselves both indoors and out. The kids were having a blast, and the adults were in a playful mood. Definitely a great way to spend a Sunday!
Mason’s mother Alyssa contacted me after finding my page on Facebook – she wanted to get some photos taken to celebrate her son’s first birthday, and she loved the idea of a cake smash. The concept is adorable: baby’s first cake – watch them go wild. Alyssa made the cake herself, and Mason was definitely a fan. At one point he was shoving fistfuls of cake into his mouth, and then just decided the best way to go at it was to put his whole face into it – hilarious! It was a pleasure visiting with Alyssa and Mason – we had a blast!
Before things got messy. This was hilarious – Mason just sat there for a while, arm up on the balloon as if it was an armrest on a recliner – looking at the cake, just chillin’. Finally, after some prompting from his mum, he dug in. And BOY did he dig in! More photos from Mason’s 1st birthday cake smash to come!
Hey y’all! My goodness, I met the *cutest* baby boy today for a photo session celebrating his first birthday. Here’s a sneak peek; full blog post (with a cake smash!!) to follow!
Joel and Chantelle were introduced through a mutual friend and started communicating online, neither of them anticipating the kind of feelings that would develop between them. They lived provinces apart – Chantelle in Edmonton, Alberta and Joel in Brampton, Ontario – and they had no idea that soon, unseen forces would bring them together. They spoke online every single day for hours on end – excitement and admiration blooming all the while. They couldn’t wait to hear from each other. After several weeks of talking, they finally met when Chantelle came back to her hometown of Toronto to go to school, and, surprised by how strong their connection was, they… Keep Reading
These two have a chemistry together that I felt privileged to witness – they clearly love each other so much, and they know how to make each other laugh and smile. The time certainly flew by for this fun shoot. I felt honoured to photograph this beautiful couple – both inside and out.
My friend Chi is an incredibly talented baker and she’s starting her own business: Chi’s Cakes! (Say it out loud – brilliant, right?) We got together and I photographed some of her latest creations in celebration of her baking venture and my photography one. A great way to spend a rainy Sunday! Check out her Facebook page!
Ariana wanted to do a shoot with her son Jamie at the height of the colourful Autumn season, and we had fun frolicking about in the forest, marveling at the stunning Fall colours. I had so much fun hanging out with this wonderful, abundantly energetic pair. Between frequent kisses and hugs, and many impromptu play fights, it was easy to see that these two share a very special bond.
