Summer Engagement Photos in Niagara
Heading out on a warm spring or summer evening and capturing some stunning engagement photos in Niagara has to be one of my favourite pass times. We met Graham & Rachel when we were photographing Rachel’s sister wedding in 2013. Matt & Beth’s backyard barn wedding was one of our favourite weddings ever and the first wedding we shot film at! Needless to say we were so happy to hear when Rachel & Graham got engaged and new exactly which niagara wedding photographer they wanted to work with!
For couples who maybe be searching for help on what to wear for an engagement session look no further. I thought these two did a fabulous job. I could just rename this article “What to wear for your Engagement Session”!

DESTINATION WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER MEXICO
Bev & John’s Destination Wedding in Mexico was an experience to say the least. It’s always a blessing as Fine Art Wedding Photographers to travel the world with our couples and capture some incredible wedding photos with them! Here’s a little of their story. Bev and John found us at home in Toronto searching for Toronto destination wedding photographers. We had coffee and instantly connected. There’s nothing more important that connecting with your photographer. In the months leading up to their destination wedding in Mexico we planned their awesome Cliffside Engagement Session at the Scarborough Bluffs. Later in June we joined up with them and all their guests at YYZ and took off for their wedding in Maya Riviera Mexico! All the guests stayed at the Dreams Riviera Cancun Hotel, a beautiful spot if I may say so myself.
Travelling to new countries and experience new cultures are some of our favourite things in life. Emma and I have travelled extensively over the last 5 years and shooting destination weddings is a wonderful way to continue to see the world and experience new things. All the while capturing weddings through film photography, priceless. Anyways, back to the details here… Included in our destination packages is a super fun secondary session in the destination location! Bev & John kept things simple and had somewhat of a destination engagement session in Mexico! Their ceremony took place off the Dreams Riviera Cancun Resort as they wanted to have a private wedding on the beach. We all travelled up the coast of Maya Riviera to Grand Coral Beach Club for a more private beach wedding and reception experience. They had a ceremony at sunset on the ocean coast and it was lovely. Exchanging their vows with the ocean breeze and sand beneath their feet with nobody but their guests to admire. It was perfect. The reception was wild and ended in some late night swims. A party to remember! A special thank you to Sabrina of Weddings Riviera Maya for planning everything so well!

Andrew Mark Photography Workshops
With the recent launch of our new website we have also launched something else brand new; 1:1 Film Workshops! Andrew Mark Photography Workshops are brand new and we’re super excited! There’s an ever growing interest among many photographers in the industry to revive the “art” in their work and take their portfolio to the next level. For many the answer is found in beauty that only film can provide. A completely new perspective to capturing the love we see on a wedding day. These images were captured at the Woodbourne Inn in St. David’s on a cold January afternoon during a 1:1 Film Photography Workshop. Wether you’re a bride or a photographer we hope you find inspiration here. For photographers looking to fire up the passion in your art and pursue the beauty of film in your own work give us a shout!
All images were captured during the 1:1 Andrew Mark Workshop. A huge thank you to the phenomenal Niagara & Toronto wedding vendors that helped make this happen:
