Toronto Wedding Photographer » Alicia Thurston Photography

Having two little ones means I usually put on Tokyo or Australia’s fireworks and countdown so that everyone can blow their horn and head to bed by 8pm, well at least the kids. I was more than happy to change up the routine this year with a huge celebration as Tori and Kyle said ‘I do’ and rang in the New Year with all of their favourite people. I had such a blast inconspicuously dancing to Footloose (shamelessly, one of my favourite songs) while capturing all the festivities.
Their wedding took place at the Listowel Golf Club and unlike Toronto, there was plenty of snow. Tori wished for it and she got it, maybe a wee bit more than she wanted but it was beautiful. A good samaritan happily shovelled a path at this little gazebo we ventured to for some of their portraits. This mama was just a friendly neighbour and pretty much became the hero to her little girl who from her living room window was watching the princess in white dance in the snow.
Truly, it was an exceptional New Years Eve with really, really good people. Congrats Tori and Kyle, I hope you are having an awesome honeymoon.
Here is a look at their same day wedding slideshow, enjoy and Happy New Year, may 2017 be filled with magic and all the things.

Maria and Daniel’s wedding was so dreamy. An absolutely amazing day for two people who love each other deeply. Their celebration took place at a truly unique Toronto venue, The Eglinton Grand, where every detail is cared for, from delicious apps and cocktails to a first dance that feels like you’ve just walked into a glamorous Broadway show. Maria and Daniel had their heart set on some outdoor photos and even with the sudden weather change, they trusted me and braved the cold. I’m so grateful for their willingness and adore the beautiful photos that came from our chilly adventure. It was an honour to be part of Maria and Daniel’s day, I can’t say enough about the family and friends that surrounded them, making their day magical.
Congrats to the both of you, I wish you many years of blissful happiness. Enjoy this same day slideshow from their wedding on November 20th, 2016.

Is it crazy that it’s time to start talking about the holidays? Feels like summer was yesterday, I think I’m holding on a little too tight this year. Time flies when you’re having fun! Just another reason to embrace it, capture some memories, cherish those sweet moments with your kiddos.

Here’s a look at our 2016 Holiday card lineup. Orders must be placed by November 14th to ensure you have time to send them out to your family and friends before Christmas.

I’m excited to announce I will be doing kids Holiday mini sessions in studio this year. More details to come once the scene is set, stay tuned. Feel free to reach out if you want to get your name on the early bird list, there will be a bonus with early bookings!

We have a couple more spots left for Fall family sessions, the colours are radiant this year! They are going quickly, now is the time to book.
