No winter is too cold when you have enough love.
A little chill in the air and snow on the ground doesn’t mean that an outdoor photoshoot is not an option; it means that the photos are going to be beautiful! Taking winter pictures can be difficult for an inexperienced photographer due to the light reflecting off of the pristine white snow…luckily, Machado Photography photographers are experts with lots of experience in any circumstance!
In 2014, Machado Photography had the pleasure of being hired to photograph the wedding of Robyn & James where we met Robyn’s sister Reneé and her boyfriend Sean. (You can check out Robyn & James’ fun cooking engagement photos here:

Just before Christmas I met with the happy couple at Waterloo Park for their engagement shoot. The freshly fallen snow was a happy coincidence! There was just enough snow to cover the ground and make everything bright and shiny, but not so much that we had to trudge through deep drifts or render the benches unsittable! Another little bonus was that despite the snow, it was actually quite warm out, a perfect day for strolling around the park.
Sean & Reneé loved the versatility of the location (as do I; that’s why I recommend Waterloo Park to my many of my clients who don’t have an idea of where they’d like to go for their photos). As you can see, it looks like we drove all over the city taking pictures; we had so many settings to work with! Amongst the trees, in the fields of tall grasses, in front of the Perimeter Institute, on the bridge, in the gazebo, behind the Grist Mill….I don’t know how they’re going to pick their favourites because all of these shots are amazing!
Photographing Sean and Reneé was so much fun; they’re naturals in front of the lens. I can’t wait for the wedding!
