Caitlin Free Photography » Toronto Wedding & Lifestyle Photographer - Destination Wedding Photographer | GTA & International Photography | For the adventurous, yet romantic couple |

This was my first time photographing at the Niagara Botanical Gardens and wow – it’s so pretty there you have to visit! Marc & Julia’s engagement session was SO full of romance! They were effortlessly in love & it was super hard choosing photographs for this blog post!! We walked around to a ton of incredibly pretty spots like the pathway down a row of lined trees you’ll see below. The bees were buzzing, the breeze was cool & steady, and the light.. was incredible. We planned the session about 2 hours before sunset which allows for that nice golden light to add that sparkle to their photos!

Getting to know my couples is so important to me so I send out an engagement questionnaire before our session. I think this question below is one of the favourite ones I love to read!

What do you each love about each other?

Marc is my best friend. I love how he knows me better then I know myself. He is always there for me and very helpful. I love that even after six years I look forward to seeing / talking to him at the beginning and end of my day. It was an instant connection I knew from the moment we started talking that he would be my husband one day.

Julia means the absolute world to me and I would do anything for her to ensure she’s always happy and enjoying herself. I do whatever I can to help her out and provide guidance. Julia is my best friend, I can’t wait to see her every weekend and spend time with her and her amazing family. I knew from the beginning that one day I would be asking Julia to marry me!

 

Ahhhh how sweeet!!!! I’m so looking forward to your September wedding you two!!

Shawn & Jacqueline’s wedding day at Roseville Estate in Cambridge was one of my favourites from this year. Their theme was rustic glam which I think they pulled off quite well! The girls were in gold dresses and their bouquets were ivory, champagene and had a hint of blush in them. The guys looked incredibly dapper in their blue suits, and of course had the gold ties to match the girls. Everything was just beautiful. Roseville Estate is such an amazing venue because everything is at one location and the property is just stunning!! The old stone house and the ceremony space in the barn are so charming, plus the huge tent for the reception allows for a big ol’ partay!

Both Shawn & Jacqueline have such wonderful close friends and family and you could feel the love oozing all around them that day. From the getting ready process all the way to the incredible heart felt speeches, it was all there. I don’t think I’ve laughed and cried so much at a wedding this year. Oh and about the crying, there was not a dry eye in the barn during the ceremony. My tears were uncontrollable actually, and I had to get up and go to the back of the barn and pull myself together for the rest of the ceremony!

I’ve known Shawn since high school, so it was such an honour to be a part of such a special day for him and his now wife Jacqueline. Seeing so many people from that time and also some previous couples at the wedding just made it that much better. I had such a wonderful time and didn’t want the night to end!

I am so happy for the both of you, and congrats again!

Justin & Tracy had the most wonderful intimate wedding in Toronto this summer at City Hall. With only 13 guests, they celebrated their love story in such a simple & beautiful way. Justin got ready at home with his brothers while Tracy & the girls got ready at the beautiful Royal York Hotel. Tracy’s sister Elissa did her absolutely flawless makeup and Tracy was just the most beautiful modern retro bride! Check out her shoes too.. it’s them.. THE ONES – all you ladies know what I’m talking about!!

They wanted to do a first look, and we all know that I LOVE first looks! Osgoode Hall was our backdrop and it was simple and sweet right before we walked on over to City Hall for the ceremony.

City Hall actually surprised me with such aesthetically pleasing lines to work with for some portraits and it was a nice change from my normal backdrops of greenery. We then hung out for some family photos where I was able to capture some fun moments between everyone which I just love! AND I may or may not have been a part of Justin’s brother (who is from Philly), trying his first poutine EVER which I thought was totally amazing! I’m pretty sure he liked it – who wouldn’t?!

Their reception took place at Barberian’s steak house in one of their private wine cellars. I was instantly wowed by how beautiful it was in there… and it was so utterly romantic I couldn’t even handle it..!

Everything was just oozing goodness on their wedding day  – every detail was simple, elegant and perfect.. the best!

Congrats again you two!

Getting married on one of the hottest and haziest days of the year isn’t very easy, but Mike & Michelle pulled it off without a hitch! Getting ready at the Westin Harbour Castle hotel, I watched as they both read their cards from one another, and opened their sentimental gifts. Mike put together a frame for Michelle that had the coordinates of where they met, where they got engaged and then where they were getting married. I definitely held back my tears..! There were so many little personal touches to their wedding day and it was such a dream to photograph.

Michelle had a whole limo to herself on the way to the Distillery District for her first look with Mike just a hop away from Archeo – where they would later have their ceremony & reception. We had so much time for photos (woo for me!), so we checked out Polson Pier and also Cherry beach for portraits of the two of them. Now Polson Pier is a great spot to take photos because you can get the Toronto skyline in the background but, since it was SO hazy.. you can only see a faint outline of everything and I think it actually looks pretty cool! Cherry Beach was incredibly dreamy.. the trees and the hazy light made for some of my favourite photographs of the day with Michelle & Mike. You guys were seriously amazing.

The ceremony at Archeo was beautiful and full of emotion, especially when Michelle’s sister sang while they were signing the registry. What a lovely voice! You could see how proud their father was watching one of his daughters sing, and one get married.

I don’t think anyone in Toronto is a stranger to the Love Lock sign in the Distillery, so that’s where we headed next so Michelle & Mike could put their engraved lock onto the sign. The reception inside Archeo was set up in such a simple and beautiful way, with a buffet style dinner with some seriously good food. I’d eat that ravioli any day! They also had a popcorn bar and a candy bar so I think everyone was pretty much in heaven..

Mike & Michelle also now share their wedding anniversary with Michelle’s grandparents which was July 8th, 1944. Her grandpa was there with the original certificate of marriage as well. It was so sweet!

There were so many wonderful elements to Ahmed & Jessica’s modern urban wedding day at Mildred’s Temple Kitchen, so I’ll just start from the beginning.

Jessica got ready at her parents house & was surrounded by her elementary school friends as she got ready and enjoyed the morning. It’s so amazing when you can have lifelong friends to share such special times in your life with – you could feel the excitement and love just pouring through their home! While I was taking photos of Jessica’s details, there were definitely a few of my little chipmunk friends that came to say ‘hi’ as I did my thing. Love little surprises like that! What a beautiful home and backyard to take photos in!

Ahmed was patiently waiting at Gairloch gardens for his bride-to-be to arrive so that they could have a moment to themselves and see each other for the first time. I absolutely adore first looks, especially when you get a reaction like Ahmed’s! We took a stroll through the rose garden after and found a little spot for them to read their personal vows to each other. It was so sweet and heartwarming hearing them express their love to each other. I think it’s so important  to take the time to be with your one and only on your wedding day, and really be present with each other in little moments throughout the day. This was definitely one of those moments!

Having their wedding ceremony & reception at Mildred’s Temple kitchen, we headed over to Liberty Village to take some photos of them beforehand. The graffiti wall in Liberty Village is such a wonderful background for photos, and I’m so glad we went there! Just as we finished, the rain started to pour down, so it was pretty perfect timing actually!

Mildred’s was set up gorgeously for their reception! From the tables to the florals, it was perfect. Little sidenote as well… Jessica did all the florals herself, and Ahmed’s sister Farah made the cake! Can you say ahh-mazing!!? The ceremony was so sweet, and you could just see the excitement on both of their faces as they made it official. The night continued on with heartfelt speeches, delicious food and of course a lot of dancing!!

I’ve been meaning to post this for the last few months, but I’ve been sitting on sharing something so personal – as It’s not something I normally do. I always see blog posts on “turning 30” but I never see any posts about how being 30 actually in fact, was.

This is what this post is all about. This was the journey that was my 31st year on this planet.

gold balloons photo shoot, 30th birthday photoshoot ideas, desert photoshoot gold accents

As you approach 30 there are so many things that are typically going through your head. Most people think they need to be somewhere by the age of 30, that need to have accomplished incredible life goals. Marriage, baby, buying a home, successful job.. all that typical stuff that you grow up thinking you need by a certain point in your life. My 31st year taught me otherwise.

gold balloons photo shoot, 30th birthday photoshoot ideas, desert photoshoot gold accents

2015 was a pretty hard year. I went through a breakup unexpectedly after 6 years. I moved 4 times. I was pinned by a car (& still went on to photograph a wedding that day)!

gold balloons photo shoot, 30th birthday photoshoot ideas, desert photoshoot gold accents

The first thing I did for myself when I turned 30 last year? A photoshoot for myself. It was something special I wanted to do, and I think that everyone should have professional photos taken of them at some point in their lives. Just feel good, let’s have some fun photos. I felt amazing turning 30!

Then about a month later, heartbreak. I wasn’t sure what was happening in my life anymore. I was entirely confused, but with the help of family and friends I grew stronger. So much stronger. I finally realized how much I deserved real love in my life. A great love. This whole scenario was in fact, the best thing that could have ever happened to me. I can’t wait to feel the powerful love, support and magic that all of my couples feel one day.

But that’s just one tiny little part of the last year.

gold balloons photo shoot, 30th birthday photoshoot ideas, desert photoshoot gold accents

This last year was about doing things for myself, living my damn life and having fun. Trying new activities, new recipes, being my spontaneous self, dating ‘men’ & figuring out what I like & don’t like in a guy, in a relationship, in life.

Putting myself first always.

gold balloons photo shoot, 30th birthday photoshoot ideas, desert photoshoot gold accents

gold balloons photo shoot, 30th birthday photoshoot ideas, desert photoshoot gold accents

This last year I have started to do all of the things that I love to do, talk to the people I want to talk and hang out with. I’ve explored the city, been to Jays and Raptors games galore. I went to 5 concerts last summer, seeing 7 of my favourite artists, and I even got my first tattoo. I went to freaking ICELAND finally and loved every single damn moment of it. I just decided that my year of being 30 was going to be all about ME. Doing everything that I loved, experiencing new things with the people I loved.

gold balloons photo shoot, 30th birthday photoshoot ideas, desert photoshoot gold accents

I decided that it was ok that I had not accomplished many things that my friends and family had already accomplished by this age. Those things that are ‘expected’ of you by this age. I have accomplished so many wonderful things in my life that I am so proud of, that suit me and no one else. I am so much stronger than I was a year ago. I have had so many new and incredible experiences under my belt and am continuing to do so. I love my life.

gold balloons photo shoot, 30th birthday photoshoot ideas, desert photoshoot gold accents

I stopped comparing my life to other people’s lives, and I just lived. I lived so hard this last year that I am finally me again.

When your couple wants to have their engagement session at Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington – you absolutely say yes! We had so much fun at Hendrie Park, and the Laking Garden and lucked out with some fantastic blooms. They brought their adorable lil pup Koda, who is an Alaskan Klee Kai. So cute!!

From the soon-to-be-bride:

“Michael and I met through mutual friends on a night out in Toronto. We instantly clicked as we were both real estate agents and loved singing/dancing to Drake! For 2 years we were best friends and talked on the phone often. I was newly single and didn’t want to get into a relationship but I knew there was something special about him so I kept him close as a friend.

Fast forward to 2013 – we decided to give a shot and went on our first date. It was obviously the best date ever even though we simply went to the movies. We laughed non-stop and shared our first kiss as boyfriend & girlfriend.”

Congrats on your engagement you guys! I can’t wait to photograph your wedding next year!!

I love small and intimate weddings. The ones where you really get to know everyone, and can see more closely the depth of love that surrounds you. I only got to spend a few hours with Emily & Ariel on their wedding day, and I’m so happy life brought us together. It was a short lived pleasure, but a pleasure nonetheless.

Congrats you two! xo

You may remember Jamie & Gary from their oh-so-romantic engagement session I posted here last year. We continued that trend with their romantic wedding day in Niagara-on-the-Lake this year.

Gary & Jamie’s wedding took place at the Queen’s Landing Hotel at the end of April. I just loved how elegant and charming everything was on their wedding day. From the ceremony to reception there was no shortage of beauty, emotional moments and of course many many laughs. We lucked out with some fresh blooms on a gorgeous tree at the back of the property for photos of the two of them. The wedding party was full of energy & laughs and it was such a pleasure to enjoy the day with everyone.

Congrats you two on a beautiful wedding day & thank you for letting me be a part of it!

I don’t even know where to start with this blog post! First off, thank you KC & Omar for bringing me with you to the Bahamas for the week to celebrate with your friends and family. The whole week was filled with love, laughter, great food & late night chats about life. I couldn’t have asked for a better group to spend time with.

Their wedding day was a unique one in the most beautiful way. They tied the knot at the beachfront Airbnb they rented for the week, up on the deck surrounded by lovely pink flowers. The bouquets were hand made from local flora by family & friends, and everything about the day was just so… perfect.

In the morning, the guys headed to a local barber shop to get fresh trims and shaves, while the girls had their own adventures getting ready at the beachfront property.

I love it when couples have a first look before the ceremony and this one did not disappoint. The look on Omar’s face when he saw KC for the first time was priceless – he held that look for what seemed like forever. Just in awe of how beautiful she was – it was so incredibly sweet.

It was pretty darn hot on their wedding day, so we took some quick photos at the ruins and then headed over to the shade that was the Queen’s Staircase, right in Nassau. I absolutely loved this location – definitely my favourite of the day.

The ceremony was approaching so we headed back to the beachfront property to take some portraits out on the pier before freshening up. Their ceremony was lovely against the pink flowers & the emotions were flowing as they read their vows to each other. I was definitely holding back my tears so I could keep shooting!!

I just love receptions, but a reception on the beach!? Yes please. The waves were crashing in as the speeches were read & the delicious food was devoured. A perfect night on the beach.

Now before I end this post, I just want to say to everyone that was there that week – I’m so happy to have spent it with you all – you are all so amazing.

I can’t believe you all jumped in the pool…

What a way to start off my 2016 wedding season. Elizabeth & Jay’s February wedding at the University of Toronto’s Hart House was stunning. Hints of gold were found everywhere, and elegance reigned supreme.

Elizabeth was stunning in her Sottero & Midgley gown, and her bridal party sparkled in their gold sequined Sorella Vita dresses. Jay wore a custom made suit by King & Bay Custom Clothing. Jay’s wedding band was handcrafted from gold taken from both families at The Devil’s Workshop, and to top it all off the bride’s mother Dianne, made the beautiful wedding cake as well. Wow.

Details aside, their gorgeous wedding day was full of family touches and ties. It was truly a celebration of love that I was so honoured to be a part of. Just take a look at the photos below and check out all the amazing vendors from their day at the bottom!

Congrats again you two!
