Berkeley Bicycle Club Wedding

Jamie & Dominic’s Wedding

I had the pleasure of capturing the wedding ceremony of this sweet couple on a scorching hot summer day in downtown Toronto. A photographer covering weddings requires constant attention and split-second timing, but I’ve never really thought of it as work. Rather, it’s more like a part of and capturing one of the most beautiful and memorable moments in a couple’s life.

Dominic and Jamie decided on “the perfect trifecta” — Berkeley Bicycle Club, for their wedding venue because of its historic charm, contemporary vibe & unique character. Initially starting out as a city & architecture photographer, I am particularly fond of locations like this that feature a perfect touch of intimacy and architecture significance. They never fail to create an excellent backdrop in photographs.

Jamie proposed to Dominic back in December 2017 on the enormous, concrete-covered Plaza de la Constitución in the historic center of Mexico City. Initially meeting in the vibrant West Queen West neighbourhood, they enjoyed offbeat galleries, indie boutiques, and picturesque parks together. Nourishing the love for the artistic yet futuristic lifestyle, they decided on Japan as their honeymoon destination.

As a wedding photographer, I love the energy that blossoms when newlyweds catch each other’s eyes for the first time after being pronounced partners for life. Having such a beautiful venue as a background further increases the beauty of this moment.

Jamie & Dominic looked incredibly happy and fulfilled as all their guests enjoyed the fabulous evening that ensued. They were also filled with joy by their dog Kevin, who had the honour of being the ring bearer during their wedding ceremony. Kevin also happens to be in their favourite photo from the day – the three of them sitting on the main steps of their wedding venue.

If your special day is approaching, it would give me such a pleasure to capture the moments of happiness of your wedding. I have captured countless ceremonies and pride myself on my heavy attention to candid & detail shots.
