Toronto Wedding | Erin & Jeff

It’s a new year and my first post of the year is from my last wedding of 2013.

…and what a wedding it was. I couldn’t have wished for a more perfect wedding to end the season.

Thank you Erin and Jeff for being so awesome.

Erin and her bridal party had their hair and make up done at Jalouse Hair and the wedding ceremony and reception was held at the Temple Sinai.

A special shout out to Jill Promoli for sending Erin and Jeff my way and to Christian Lee for coming all the way from Ottawa to be my second photographer for this wedding.

Erin Lurie - THANK YOU SAM – I amy beyond impressed. You have made us sooooo happy with such gorgeous photos that totally captured how amazingly fun our day was. Hahah I think the fact that my mouth is open in pretty much all the photos only shows how much fun we really were having. THANK YOU

Christian Lee - Awesome, Sam! This wedding was way too much fun. :)

Liz Silverstein - What amazing memories – always to be had….love them

Toronto Wedding | Selena & Ben

Planning a Toronto wedding in November is always a little risky weather wise. Luckily for Selena and Ben the rain held off for most of the day though it was rather cold. It did rain a little while we were outside photographing their portraits in the Toronto Music Garden by Harbourfront. Selena and her bridesmaids didn’t even flinch in the cold but I guess growing up in Winnipeg our cool fall weather was nothing to them.

The church ceremony was held at St Andrew’s Church in downtown Toronto and the traditional Korean wedding ceremony took place at The Country Club in Woodbridge along with the reception.

My good friend and talented photographer Ryan Chan joined me as second. The awesome team at SDEWeddings were on hand to create their wedding film magic and Selena commissioned Maggie Ng for the Makeup and Hair.

Ryan - Sam, these are soooooooo good! So many different perspectives and moments that even I didn’t see! Great work.

Selena Eng - The pictures are amazing Sam!!! Thank-you for capturing the day so beautifully!! And Ryan too! All the pictures look great! It’s hard to pick a favourite. Thanks again!

Lynn Eckhardt - You were the most beautiful bride ever Selena Eng!

Nigel Ong - WOW Great Pics!

Alfred Lau - Nice pics. BTW, what did Ben throw in the last pic?

Krudar Muay Thai | Movember 2013 Demonstration Match

This is definitely not wedding photography. But every now and then I do need to do something different. This was definitely different.

Two days after my wedding in Toronto my new wife and I flew to Thailand for our honeymoon in Phuket and Bangkok. I have a background in martial arts, a black belt in Tae Kown Do. I don’t practise it any more but I still love and respect Martial Arts and wanted to see a live match while we were in Bangkok. I remember thinking Jenn wouldn’t be interested so I said let’s just watch a couple of matches. After a couple of fights I said let’s go but she said no and we stayed until the very end. Awesome!

I also remember wishing I had a “real” camera with me instead of my clunky point and shoot. So when my friend Eric asked me to join him for Krudar‘s Movember demonstration match in Toronto’s Kensington Market area I was happy to oblige and help out with their fundraising event. This time I had my “real” camera with me!

Aron goss - So awesome buddy

Mikka Gia - great shots!! last one of manny is AWESOME!! Love the black and white shots!!

Sara - I bet this was a lot of fun for you to shoot. I really love how you capture the motion of the fight and the whole story to the competition. Great job!
