It was a lovely sunny day. No. Let me start all over again. It was a really cold, rainy and windy day. Let’s meet Alice & Alejandro, amazing and adventurous couple which had one thrilling wedding day. Here comes my story. I was driving from my home to downtown Toronto to meet them in their condominium building. I was thinking the whole time how we are going to do it. Originally we picked few outdoor locations which would be perfect for sunny day. However, we got completely opposite weather conditions so I had to make different plan. Alice & Alejandro still wanted to do outdoor session. When I arrived to their condo, the first thing I noticed was rubber boots right behind the doors. I asked if they are brides. She said yes. I suggested that it would be a cool idea to wear these boots with her wedding dress. It only made sense as it was really windy outside and I knew she would be soaked in her heels. Alice is one smart bride as she was ready with back up wedding dress.
We thought it would be fun to shoot at Dundas & Yonge intersection as you can cross it anyway you like. As we were in our groove and having some wet fun, out of sudden this guy comes right at us out of nowhere asking: “What are you guys doing?” I immediately recognized his face. It was Kevin Frankish from City TV’s Breakfast Television. With a huge smile he asked if he could feature story on us. You can only imagine the excitement Alice & Alejandro were feeling. Take a look at this very nicely done video feature and the rest of my images.
The story doesn’t end here however. Look at the next image and notice tour bus on the right. Now, the next day I was doing a mother & daughter portrait session in my studio. I had it booked for about 3 months. The ladies I never met showed up. As we were chatting at the end of the session I told them the whole story and showed them some photos. They both screamed: “We saw the wedding, we saw it!” I was staring at them really surprised. Then they continued. We were sitting on the tour bus when we saw you guys yesterday. I was stunned. What a coincidence.
