It was an honour to be asked to photograph Natasha & Austen's wedding day – Tasha and I met while I was in my first year at Ryerson (she was in her second) and worked together at Black's while we were in school. Natasha has always been a huge supporter of my photography – wedding & otherwise and it was so special for me to be a part of her wedding day when it FINALLY arrived (I had been waiting anxiously for their engagement for many years!!). I actually did a pre-engagement engagement shoot of them 5 or 6 years ago when I was building my portfolio (you can still see some photos from that session on my website).
Their wedding was a true DIY event – Natasha & Austen put so many personal touches into their wedding day which made it all the more special and very “them”. She even made her own (amazing) wedding dress!! The whole day just felt like such a good fit, nothing contrived – which is exactly how Natasha & Austen are as a couple and how a wedding day should feel! For their photo session, we took the nostalgic route and went to the Ryerson campus and also to the restaurant where they first met.
I can't say much more without getting too emotional…. a HUGE congrats to Natasha & Austen, I was so happy to be able to capture your wedding day for you – thank you for having me be a part of it!
My assistant Shannon took this great shot of Tasha's shoes
Natasha's younger brother helped Austen do up his tie… awwww
The couple seeing each other for the first time
Tasha & Austen met each other while working at Zyng!
Not sure if it was planned or not, but Austen's dance with his mom ended up being more of an “interpretive” dance than a traditional one!
