Sandra & Denis's Wedding

I’ve always loved the variety of amazing locations and venues in Toronto – there is truly EVERYTHING to work with!

Sandra and Denis are an incredible couple – so kind and affectionate with one another.  Our engagement session took place in the spring on the waterfront at Trillium Park.  This was perhaps THE WINDIEST day I have ever encountered as a storm had just passed through and the wind was at its peak.  You would have never known it because we captured gorgeous photos of these two love birds, including lots of fun candids!

Sandra and Denis’s wedding also took place in Toronto and the GTA.  I love that they included a blend of traditional Serbian wedding elements (like bartering for the bride! haha!) on their big day.

With Serbian weddings, the day starts early, and the rakija (brandy) often begins flowing at the crack of dawn!  We started with preparation photos of both Sandra and Denis at their respective locations, followed by Denis and his family meeting with the bride and her family at their location.  Once a “price” for the bride has been settled upon, the bride exits her home and joins the groom and his family for dancing and celebration, as well as an incredible breakfast with their guests.

We then proceeded to Casa Loma for their ceremony and photography – this is truly an exquisite venue.  Their ceremony took place in the stunning beautifully-lit conservatory, with photography afterwards behind the historic building.

Sandra and Denis’s reception was an absolute blast with lots of traditional music and dancing (kolo), and took place at the Mississauga Grand Banquet Hall.

I had an incredible time with this gorgeous couple.  We captured so many beautiful, elegant photos – and of course, plenty of candids as well!  I wish these two nothing but the best and can’t wait to see them again!


"My husband and I hired Ema for our engagement and wedding photos and we couldn’t be happier. From the moment we met Ema we felt so comfortable with her. This was important to us when choosing a photographer. Throughout the process Ema was very responsive, informative and accommodating to our requests. We had a very windy day for our engagement shoot and she managed make us feel at ease and take beautiful pictures on such a challenging day. For our wedding she was great with our friends and family and captured our special day perfectly. We have beautiful, timeless photos to look back on for years to come. Ema is a true professional and on top of that she’s funny and so down to earth! We highly recommend Ema." - Sandra
