Hamilton Wedding Photography at The Waterfront Banquet & Conference Centre


I had a pleasure to photograph Nathan and April's wedding in Hamilton in April this year. I really loved the energy on this wedding - young, happy couple in love with each other. I drove to the hotel in downtown Hamilton to capture their preparation. I worked alongside with my videographer who did an amazing job in capturing everything for them in the video. After their wedding ceremony at the church in Hamilton, we drove to Dundrum Castle for bridal and groom and bride pictures. It was very cold and windy April day and after 25 minutes session, we decided to move to the second wedding pictures location to Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington. This is a beautiful place all year round and never disappoints on the wedding session. Their reception was The Waterfront Banquet & Conference Centre in Hamilton, a short drive from RBG. A very nice place with great decor & staff. If you are looking for an experienced Hamilton wedding photographer and videographer please get in touch with me and I will be happy to show you my affordable wedding photography prices and get over the details with you. I know Hamilton area very well, I live here and enjoy covering weddings in my neighborhood. Please enjoy pictures and a video from Crystal and Nathan's wedding.

Beautiful Toronto wedding photos at at Edwards Gardens, Toronto


This was one of my favorite wedding of this year. I love everything about shooting June and Jonathan's wedding. All the little details, wonderful and helpful bridal party, a bride who posed like a pro model for me and we understood each other without the words. The intimate atmosphere of the wedding and all the wonderful guests who showed so much love for the couple. We started with Jonathan's getting ready pictures at his friend's house at the Markham. Then I drove to June's house to capture her and bridesmaids pictures. After a church ceremony in Toronto, we left for the wedding pictures in Edwards Gardens. It was a hot day, but bridal party and my wedding couple were full of energy, and I was able to convince them to sit on the rocks in the river and take breathtaking pictures. I love shooting weddings and engagement session at Edward's Gardens. So many different spots and lots of options for beautiful wedding pictures. I had a pleasure to shoot for the first time at Auberge Du Pommier in Toronto. They held their wedding reception there, and it is a very intimate and classy restaurant.

Italian - Persian wedding at the Kortright Centre for Conservation


Kristina and Rey were one of the nicest couples I have ever worked with. I went first to take the pictures at Rey's parent's house in Richmond Hill. Rey's mom, a wonderful lady, made sure that no one was going hungry on that day including me - their wedding photographer. Their wedding took place at the Kortright Centre for Conservation. A wonderful place for outdoor weddings which I truly find inspiring every time I photograph weddings there. They did their first look pictures and bridal pictures before a fairy tale outdoor ceremony. It was a traditional Persian ceremony with lots of details and gifts and I truly envied my bride all those beautiful jewelry that she got from their family. Very emotional wedding and a very beautiful couple and I wish them all the best!

Oakville Wedding Photography at Harbour Banquet & Conference Centre


Christina and Richard brought family and friends together for their Wedding at Harbour Banquet & Conference Centre, Oakville. I didn't have a chance to meet with them prior to their wedding day as they live in Vancouver so what a wonderful surprise I had when I saw how beautiful bride I was going to photograph. It is extra fun when you get to work with wonderful people like this young couple. We started at the hotel in Oakville for a few getting ready pictures with the groom and his family and then I moved to Christina's parent's house in Oakville. Everything was ready for me. The dress was beautifully hung in the window and all the details were arranged. Thy had an outdoor ceremony in Oakville Club and weather turned out to be beautiful on their wedding day. I did a sunset session with them around the surrounding of Oakville Club and I think it is always a great idea to sneak out for 10 minutes and do sunset pictures. Enjoy viewing their beautiful wedding pictures.

Winter Toronto engagement session


Engagements sessions are a GREAT way to practice with your Toronto wedding photographer ahead of the big day! We love to take you on a whirlwind tour of our favorite spots all around the city. It was a freezing February morning when I met with Alex and Robert for their city engagement session. I enjoy shooting winter engagement session a lot, and Toronto is perfect for such occasions. We started at the Nathan Phillips Square as both of them shared a big passion for skating on ice. After a good 20 minutes of shooting in the cold, we decided to warm up at the nearby coffee shop. My couple chose an "M Square Coffee Co." right across the street from Nathan Phillips Square. For final engagement pictures, we went to an Osgood Hall in Toronto which looks perfect during the winter and summer. The Osgoode Hall Court House is an interesting complex of interconnected buildings located at Queen and University. Conveniently located in the center of the city, this beautiful building is surrounded by the equally beautiful park/garden.
Luminous images, full of color and light. If you’re looking for a professional Toronto wedding photographer who can provide the most breathtakingly beautiful wedding photos, Alexandra Jakubowska Wedding Photography is the one to choose.
