Travel is the new way for engagements. I can’t stop, won’t stop encouraging everyone to think of cool spots to shoot their engagements. It’s usually best if you have an obligation, or already have travel plans.

Case and point, Azin and Andy brought us to London with them. This was truly one of my favorite shoots. On location in the beautiful historic city I planned a route that took us to all the sweet spots in the city. London Bridge, which is actually called Tower Bridge, was our jump off, I found a spot where at low tide you can get right on the shore of the Thames. Then off to a pub for a traditional London look. The spectacular Saint Paul’s Cathedral at sunset and to finish a surprise place called Leaden Hall. Enjoy the images!

Elegant Wedding Feature

We have the honour of being featured in the current 2019 issue of Elegant Wedding Magazine. Alysha and Vaughan’s beautiful day in Kurtz Orchard at Peller Estates was featured. Niagara on the Lake is just one of the most beautiful settings you can imagine. Can’t wait to go back.

Berkeley Boho.

The Westend Studio Teamed up with some of Toronto's most stylish vendors this month. The stunning and eclectic Berkeley Bicycle Club was the location for our spring bohemian glamour inspired style shoot. The absolutely stunning hand crocheted dress by Rue De Siene genorously provided by Lovers Land was the star of our shoot, especially on our beautiful model, wow. The Bicycle Club as a setting provides stunning accents of original mahogany panels, archways and uneven plastered walls. It was the home of The Gooderham family notorious Torontonian distillers whos whiskey empire came on hard times during 1920's prohibition era. The Mansion changed hands a number of times over the decades and is now in the care of Berkeley Events who have restored it to its former glory. The shoot was also highlighted by floral designs by Hello Midge Flowers, make up by JC Creative and a cake by Roccoa Butter.

A Wedding By The Westend Studio

A classic wedding at an historic venue.

Jonathan from The Westend Studio describes this beautiful day…

…when Mark and Alanna asked me to capture their wedding day I was honoured. Not only did they choose a beautiful historic venue, they also had an outdoor reception at a private residence under a tent, the kind of wedding I love. Catherine from The Creative Details helped put everything together and did an beautiful job. Mark and Alanna are just the most wonderful people, their images show their personalities, and classic taste. It was a pleasure and privilege to shoot their day.
