Real Engagement: Liz + Zico in Toronto

I love the creative lighting, locations and compositions of this modern engagement session! Captured by Calculated Style Photography, Liz and Zico spent a day last March wandering the historic Distillery District in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The couple brought their dog along for the walk, incorporating him seamlessly into their shoot. The mixture of brick textures, dramatic lighting, and a loving couple creates a series of gorgeous images!

Real Wedding: Paige + Sam in California

Wow, I love all the bold and bright colors in this wedding! Captured by Joe+Kathrina Photography, Paige and Sam were married last September in Huntington Beach, California at the Hyatt Regency. The couple’s beach wedding captured their love of the ocean and a palette of “sunset” colors helped to emphasize the theme. A custom flower logo was the focal point of the bright and graphic wedding invitations and stamps. The bridesmaids each wore a dress with a bold color from the wedding’s sunset palette. The groomsmen wore black suits with colored socks to add some pizazz. Not to be outdone by the bridal party, Paige wore amazing hot pink sequined heels! The couple met at the drive through of a Starbucks, so they gifted their guests with Starbucks gift cards as wedding favors. As a late night snack during the reception, churro bites with caramel and chocolate dip were served. Sounds delicious!

Real Wedding: Elizabeth + Steve in Santa Monica

Who doesn’t love a beautiful beach wedding? Captured by One Eleven Photography, Elizabeth and Steve were married last September at Jonathan Beach Club in Santa Monica, California. This was a destination wedding for the couple, who live in Michigan, where they are both completing medical residencies. Being that Beth and Steve met in Southern California and both have large families living on the West coast, Santa Monica was a logical location for their nuptials. Before the wedding, the couple shared a touching first look and walked the beach for a few portraits. Then, they were joined by their bridal party for pre-ceremony shots in the fog. A color palette of pale blue and vivid green was carried throughout the bridal party attire and floral designs. Beth and Steve chose simple modern details that remain classic and truly sophisticated!
