Anna & Kosta
October 2013 // Toronto
“You told a story of the day in a way I never thought was possible…. “
Anna and Kosta are awesome. I’ve known Anna for a few years now, following her on the interwebs, Anna is a Fine Art photographer & Lifestyle Blogger based in Toronto. We all initially met over Skype and when they booked me for their wedding, it came with an added bonus of shooting an engagement session in Paris. It had always been a dream of Anna’s to have photos taken there and I feel honoured to have been able to capture it. Magic.
I had a ball with Kosta and Anna in France in August, but didn’t know at the time just how much fun I would have flying out to Toronto for their wedding later in the year. I spent the first evening with Anna’s family for dinner, getting to know Anna’s family and friends before the big day,
Then came the wedding day, which was absolutely epic. The ceremony took place at St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, and when I first stepped inside, my jaw literally dropped. A beautiful church. My eyes and my camera went a little crazy inside shooting all the beautiful details and art.
After the ceremony we headed to Graydon Hall Manor, a great spot for their portraits and bridal party photos. Then it was on to Crystal Fountain Hall for the reception. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so much good food at one wedding (And I’m Indian!).
The reception was one big party. A fantastic celebration that I couldn’t help but get involved in too .. I danced with Kosta and Anna’s family and friends on more than one occasion and it was so good .. Apparently, according to Anna, I’m now a part ‘of the big fat Greek family’ and it feels great. I can’t thank everyone enough for making me feel so welcome at the wedding. I was in my element and literally felt like a old friend shooting a friends wedding.
Thanks to the dude Sam Obeid for being an amazing second shooter and for showing me around Toronto too. You’re the man. I hope we can jam again together Sam.
Final thanks to Anna and Kosta. Big love to you guys for choosing me to capture your story ..
