Beautiful lesbian brides pose for a photo at the Country Heritage Park in Toronto Ontario

Beautiful lesbian wedding held at the Country Heritage Park in Toronto Ontario

I’m incredibly lucky in what I do.

I get to meet fun, enthusiastic, awesome couples and help them celebrate one of the best days of their lives (so far!) together.

I capture the photos of them holding back the tears while they say ‘I do’, laughing hysterically while they trek through a forest in heels (or dress shoes), and slow dancing the night away. I get to be the fly on the wall; an observer of real, amazing people falling in love.

I first met Michelle and Sonia in February at their home in Toronto. We sat around their Kitchen table for a good hour and a half sipping espressos (I had two) and talking about what made them, them.

Other than the extreme caffeine high I got, I got the chance to learn about them.

Sonia is the outgoing, independent, thrill seeker of this duo. She is the one who would invite you to go white water rafting, and even if you were terrified of water, you’d say yes in spite of yourself because she is just too nice to say no too.

Michelle is the… calmer one of the two. She is the friendly, creative spirit who was born to write.

Together they make one of the nicest, most genuine couples I have had the pleasure of meeting. So I was ecstatic when they picked me as their photographer.

Even more so when I found out (closer to the day) that they would be having a masquerade theme at their wedding!

A MASQUERADE THEME!!!!

I just LOVE the masks they chose!

The brides masquerade masks matched with their wedding ringsLove the detail shots of these rings on this lesbian wedding day. As both brides arrived we met outside by the old Ford gas station for their reveal photo..

Michelle, waiting patiently for her bride, Sonia.

We managed to get both brides back to back without seeing each other. (It was a feat in itself!)

And slowly they reached backwards and joined hands… waiting for the moment when they’d see each other for the first time…
