It's a cold, November day in Toronto and the air is heavy with the feeling of fall. I arrive at one of the Don Valley's loveliest hidden gems ~ Fantasy Farm. I'm here to photograph Meaghen and Travis' vintage-inspired fall wedding, and I am stoked. I met these two glowing souls through a friend, and knew instantly that we were in for good times. We storm outside for photos and Meaghen tosses her coat onto a nearby tree stump as snowflakes start to float down from a dusky sky. The energy and focus of my work keeps me warm, but I am bundled up; Meaghen and Travis on the other hand, well they're just in love: excited, laughing, high-fiving, making faces, ready for an amazing night. And though they claim to not be into the mushy, romantic photos that make my heart a-flutter... As soon as Travis wraps his arms around Meaghen - warming her up in her blue wedding dress and white Birkenstocks - they can't help but kiss.
Some people are just like magnets - they are meant to be together. They create their own world.
It's inspiring to be around people who can take old traditions and make them new. That is art. It frees the rest of us to be ourselves. Meaghen and Travis, thank you for sharing such an amazing moment in your life with me. I am honoured.
