Meet Alex & Pedro – two very close friends of ours! We actually shot their wedding last weekend (a gorgeous day all around) and while we can’t wait to share their wedding day with you, let’s begin at the beginning: their engagement shoot!
This adorable twosome call the downtown Toronto neighbourhood of The Junction home. Alex & Pedro love relaxing at 3030 Dundas West (their local bar hangout) where they can chill and play some pinball when the mood strikes. I seriously fell in love with these vintage pinball machines – so cool!
We took a little walk around the neighbourhood and got a few great shots in front of this really cool wall mural right off of Dundas St. West, when out of nowhere it started raining! We looked around us and immediately a store called Metropolis Living caught my eye. They had the most amazing retro light up signs in their front window and many random vintage artefacts. I highly recommend checking this place out – it’s amazing! I particularly adore their vintage LOVE sign and could not resist photographing Alex & Pedro in front of it.
A side note to anyone who wants this for their wedding – they rent the LOVE sign out and I think it would make a pretty amazing decor item to have on your wedding day for some photos.
A big thanks goes out to both 3030 Dundas West and Metropolis Living who were so welcoming to us and for allowing us to shoot inside their locations.
And of course a big thanks to our beautiful couple Alex & Pedro! We can’t wait to show you your wedding photos next… 😉
