I could not stop dreaming of him , Night and day . His image would not leave me . He spoke to me through dreams . I could feel him around me , in my thoughts , my waking dreams , he filled me with his presence from far away . A nomad in my mind , I was restless in my heart . I could feel his thoughts at a distance , at all hours . and would sit dreaming of him , hoping to conjure up his image . And he would appear before my eyes , walking with me , taking my hand as if he had always been there . As if we had never parted . He surrounded me with his thoughts , like a master mermaid catcher … I could feel his sparkling net being cast … and the tall ship would pass by on the water , sails unfurled , as if writing his name in clouds , a nomad in an ever changing sky .

A Toronto Love Story
Grooving on a Cloudy Afternoon… A couple in love strolling by the waterfront . Man about town, actor and personal trainer, Ryan takes his gorgeous girl Miranda out for a surprise late afternoon photo shoot, that turns very romantic , and the sun comes out on a cloudy day …
Did he, or didn’t he…?
Miranda looks very, very happy, but she is not telling… All we see is a romance ,a young couple in love, a pretty girl dressed in white dancing on a spring afternoon , and Toronto’s skyline from one of my favorite vantage points.
Modern Canadian Romantics. Tan and toned, and young and lovely, they bring passion and a sensual beat with them where ever they go. Smooth, warm, sensual and savvy, their energy has the rhythm of a samba. This dynamic downtown couple, Miranda and Ryan move to their own sweet rhytm that heats up downtown Toronto and the waterfront.
As you can see for yourself, they make even a cloudy day in Toronto sizzle, and bring life to Toronto’s Edwardian past, giving a cool day in May an extra special flavor.
We followed them on a romantic rainy, late spring afternoon, shooting their very own very cool downtown Toronto samba; a celebration of modern love – and a true downtown romance .
Playing peek-a-boo with the sun, light as a summer breeze and whispering sweet words in each other’s ear Miranda and Ryan enjoy the flowers at Allen Gardens, bringing a new look to an eternal theme. What did he whisper in her ear? Is that an engagement ring I see on her finger?

Jessie wears antique eyelet , and vintage lace from one hundred years past . She and Benjamin sport perfect hats for a summer’s day from Urban Hat bought that very morning at St. Lawrence Market , while shopping for their picnic .
An enchanted day in May, in a place long ago and far away, there was a fine lady of fashion who longed to leave the dizzying spin of city living for the pleasures of the countryside. She loved cherry blossoms, apple blossoms, and all sorts of blossoms. Most of all, she loved the Spring, and loved to dance barefoot on the grass at sun set, afternoon and especially in the light of dawn. There was also a fine gentleman who often sat by his window, gazing over the fields and the meadows. He loved to see the lady dance barefoot upon the grasses and flowers under the cherry tree at his estate in the country. She danced as if no one was watching, and every time he saw her dance, he slowly fell in love with her free and sweet spirit.
She was a very tender and delicate lady, and loved to wear the color pink. So she vowed one day that she would celebrate her wedding dressed only in pink at apple blossom and cherry blossom time. And spend her honey moon with her sweetheart, in the countryside, surrounded by the budding trees and blossoms, dancing and feasting a deaux, and enjoying La Vie en Rose – an eternal springtime of love .
One day the Marquis came to greet her while she danced ,. She took one look , and knew he was the one she had always dreamed of . He ws overwhelmed by her grace and charm , and extended his hospitality to her , were she to desire to return . And return she did , and the two fell in love .
Their engagement was celebrated with Mlle. Jessie dancing in palest blushing pink tulle , while her fiance watched on a blanlet under a crabapple in bloom , with a smile and very good bottle of white Chardonnay .He then got up to join her , promising her a lifetime of bliss , and dancing a deux , amidst the blossoms and the flowers .
Their engagement photos were our pleasure to capture , and are our pleasure to share .
Jessie’s gown is vintage , needless to say … and her entire marvelous ensemble , as well as that of her beau , is from Exile in Kensington Market .
