I love living in Toronto and taking wedding photography- I get to meet so many couples who share their stories with me and I have the honour of documenting it. I love that every story is unique. Some couples meet online. Others meet as friends. And few couples grow into adulthood together, just like Sheriese & Ricardo.
This is Sheriese & Ricardo’s story: they met when Sheriese was in grade 9 and Ricardo grade 12 in Pickering, not too far from Toronto. They saw each other through the awkward teenage years through adulthood, getting a first job, a first car, a first of many I’m sure. Not many people are this lucky! Sometimes I wish I had met my husband earlier, but than again, I might not have like him when we were young – we hung out around a totally different crowd you see.
Sheriese and Ricardo finally celebrated their wedding with their two beautiful kids! Sheriese was a very chill bride, not fussy with anything and truly enjoyed getting ready. She is absolutely stunning in her Maggie Sottero dress <3 The boys hung out in their hotel suite, enjoying brunch and Ricardo getting the kids ready for the day. My favourite part of the day is when I get to have the couple all to myself. Although time was on the crunch, I’m so glad that I was able to get the couples portrait in the 20 minutes that I had at the Pickering Waterfront! Additionally, it made it super easy for me that Sheriese and Ricardo are natural models! I’m telling ya, I didn’t even have to direct them much! They’re a photographer’s dream.
