As time continues to fly by and the Modern Bride Show is directly on our horizon we’ve been busy getting ready for the big event by preparing our handouts and other materials, and doing portrait sessions with a few clients.  We truly love this work and are looking forward to doing much more of this in the future.  All these activities are lead-ups to us launching our new engagement and wedding photography services with a brand new website that is being constructed at this very moment.

Wedding Rings - Toad Hollow Engagement and Wedding Photography Services

Wedding Rings –

You’d be hard pressed to find two people who love weddings and romance more than Mrs. Toad and I.  There is something inherently magical about these very special events.  In many cases the big day finds the bride and groom pulling together friends and family to celebrate a life-long commitment, followed by the ensuing celebrations that come with this promise.  We are looking forward to capturing these memories in still images that can be enjoyed by everyone for years to come.

On February 7th, 2015 we will be attending the Modern Bride Show at the Bay Center in Victoria.  We will be joining with one of Vancouver Island’s leading caterers Vancouver Island Event Catering, as well as a local wedding and event planner Cornerstone Weddings & Events.  This is a wonderful opportunity, one we are extremely grateful for.

This past weekend we had a family portrait session scheduled at one of our favorite heritage churches here on Vancouver Island, The Anglican Parish of St. Peter and St. Paul.  This wonderful parish is a landmark in the city and remains today a very important part of the community.  It was a very cold and damp day on the island and we were happy to have the chance to conduct this shoot indoors.  Late in the morning we met our clients, the Young family, and spent the next few hours shooting and truly enjoying the experience.
