My first wedding of the season!
And what an amazing one it was.
The day started off at Naomi’s condo where she was surrounded by her closest friends. It was so nice to see how caring and attentive they were towards her, even taking the initiative of doing a quick guided meditation session. I must admit that even I took a few deep breaths and it felt great, so much that I may start doing these before each wedding!
We then headed off for Old Montreal for their first look. The second Todd turned around and saw his beautiful wife-to-be was so high in emotions that both Betina and I had to concentrate not to cry. The love and chemistry shared between these two were so natural, which made the portrait session so very easy. Even though posing in front of a camera can be overwhelming for most, Naomi and Todd simply entered in their own little bubble, almost forgetting our presence as we captured every smile and gentle touch shared between the soon-to-be newlyweds.
Naomi and Todd really embraced their entire day, taking in every single second. Simply being present during such a busy day can be very difficult, especially when time flies by so quickly, but they were both so connected with each other that they lived through all the emotions so beautifully. Many tears were shed during their ketubah signing, and once again, I had to stay focused in order not to cry myself!
Everything was so perfect, from the getting ready to the beautifully decorated reception. Thank you so much, Naomi and Todd, for allowing me to document such an important day in your lives. It has been such a pleasure to get to know you. Always look at each other like the way you did on that perfect day.
Huge shout out to these amazing people, I am truly grateful to work with such amazing talent!
