Here is a photo from Sarah & Youssef’s Adamson Estate Mississauga wedding. I’m not sure if you saw my earlier post, but I am loving these babely brides wearing their hair down, so feminine, especially with the right dress! We took their wedding portraits around Adamson Estate, which is a beautiful spot if your wedding is the in west end of Toronto/Mississauga area. Their reception venue was The Vue, and Sarah had her incredible swing band join them for the cocktail hour. I love how different each wedding is from week to week – people choose such different focuses with each one, and I love hearing the stories of how people met and fell in love.
I really liked this photo in colour, but there is something romantic and lovely about black and white. I always ask couples about black and white, do you like it a lot, a little, etc. I will use that information when I do the final editing. I almost always include black and white and colour, so you will receive both options in the end. The only time you might get a black and white on its own is if there is really funny lighting in a shot and black and white is the only way to really clean it up.
I shot my first Coptic ceremony for Sarah + Youssef and it was pretty awesome, though I think I shot way to many photos of the incense twirling around. It was just so beautiful and the colours are so vibrant. Their church was very cool – lots of gold and amazing arched doorways.
I can’t believe August is almost over, I have another busy weekend coming up, and I will be in one of my favourite places, Niagara on the Lake, for Natalie and Brandon’s wedding, but this Adamson Estate Mississauga wedding was pretty lovely.
Andrea + Anthony’s Adamson Estate wedding photos were lovely, they had their ceremony and reception at the Columbus Event Centre. Andrea wore this incredible Monique Lhuillier dress and she looked stunning in it. I especially loved Andrea’s hair and makeup. I will blog more of this wedding later when I catch up, but it was a big wedding, full of hilarious entertaining greek traditions and a great party.
Adamson Estate is a great location for wedding photos if you are in the Mississauga area for your wedding. I usually recommend people find photo locations near everything else they are doing, the last thing you want to do on your wedding day is sit in traffic or commute all over the place. It takes up so much time and you don’t enjoy your day as much. There are photo gems all over the place, I know a lot of them at this point, so just ask me when we’re doing your planning and I can make some suggestions.
I actually shot at the Columbus Event Centre and Adamson Estate way back at the beginning of my wedding career, and it’s so neat to go back and see how my eye has developed. What felt like a blank landscape to me before, is now a series of perfect vignettes for portraits. I love to go to new places and see opportunities for portraits, new things I never noticed, and of course seasons and time of day are huge factors as well. This photo was taken midday – when the sun in high with the wonderful help of some shade. If you’re going to do your photos in the middle of the day, just make sure we have a place to hide from the sun and then there’s nothing to worry about. It gives a different look than the evening golden hour portraits, and I personally really like it.
