Toronto Engagement Photography | Junction Graffiti Alley & The Docks
May 8, 2014
Have you heard the latest news about Erika & Junior? They are engaged and getting married! I am so excited for their BIG day and what a great way to start the wedding season…I cannot wait for the first wedding of spring for this year! To warm up a bit after a long cold winter, we waited for a sunny day and headed to The Junction to find the most unique and fun graffiti of the city. When you think about urban engagement session you definitely associate it with city, skyline, streets, alleys, murals and grafitti. I was totally up for this idea and always wanted to shoot in this location. These graffiti are located between Keele and Dundas subway stations on Bloor line, to be exact – the back side of the buildings that forms Bloor street. In the past ten years I have taking this particular subway train often and I have noticed that it is always changing. The graffiti artists has transformed this back alley and made it a public art and Toronto’s attraction. After researching and scouting for locations with graffiti in Toronto, I came across The Junction area and was pleasantly surprised that the work of ten top graffiti artists are featured there. The vibrancy and dynamics of graffiti make it an amazing backdrop especially for two people in love. To finish this session we drove to the Docks to get some night portraits with the city in the background. I had a great time with these two and so glad I had this chance to spent an evening full of laughs and fun and get to know them better before their wedding this month. Their wedding will take place in White Oaks Resort & Spa in Niagara-on-the Lake and we plan to make couple of stops at the local vineyards and wineries for more pictures. It is also a privilege knowing that Erika and Junior come from a long line of referrals. I am astonished with the results of this urban engagement session and hope you like it too.
