My dear friends Andre and Maria got married this spring. They had two ceremonies – one in Jamaica and another one in a Russian Orthodox Church in Toronto. I was honored to be a guest at both of these events. A photo shoot of the weddings was my gift to them. It was a real pleasure to work with this beautiful couple. They were so into each other, even my camera could feel their love! I wish Andre and Maria a long happy life together and lots of curly-haired children.
Below is the second ceremony that took place in Toronto. The Jamaican wedding will be posted here soon.
As you can notice, I didn’t take a lot of pictures of the couple at this second wedding. I allowed myself to concentrate on the surroundings more than on the bride and the groom. They were covered by the second hired photographer, who was doing a great job. I was fascinated by the details that grabbed my attention – sometimes they can reflect brighter aspects of the moment than standard images.
I really hope that the newlyweds are happy with my work.
Melanie Ferrara is a talented, creative, professional and passionate designer. Last week I had a pleasure of shooting Melanie`s new 2009 summer fashion collection. Hair Stylist Jenny Bell (http://www.modelmayhem.com/373351), make up artist Wendy Rorong (http://www.modelmayhem.com/1080376) and stylist Arianna Visentini did a great job! Special thanks to the models Lori-Lee, Anastasia Levinta and Elenka. The photo shooting session took place in a beautiful park in the east end of Toronto. I enjoyed it ever so much! Look forward to work with Melanie again. Here are the results of our team work .
