Bar Mitzvah Toronto Mitch
Bar Mitzvah photo session of Mitch, an adorable young boy
Look at his face – so innocent and full of life.
His eyes are brimming with hope and the smile on his face tells the world that he is still a kid at heart.
Yet, when he wore traditional Jewish outfit kippah, tallit, tefillin and read his Torah he looked so serious.
Yes, my friends, we are talking about Mitch, the lovely young boy whose bar Mitzvah photo session we shot a few days before.
Mitch and his Bar Mitzvah – growing up in style
Mitch is a lovely young boy. He is vivacious, has great interest in music and is mischievous too.
On the day of the Toronto photo session, he wore a simple pair of blue jeans and t-shirt. He looked smart and with that guitar, he simply rocked.
Seeing his bright, big eyes and the way he carried himself with confidence in front of the camera, we decided to take solo shots in different moods. With interesting props like guitar and saxophone, he stole the focus.
Happily he posed with the instruments, smiling as he lovingly held those close to him.
As I told you before, Mitch is naughty too. Look at him, jumping and posing for the camera. Spontaneous and lively, these shots reveal the child in him.
As we urged him to be do whatever he liked he started playing the guitar. It was a pleasure listening to him. To make the album more interesting, we took a few photos in black and white and merged them seamlessly.
The effect has been good? What do you say?
We tried several looks for Mitch. He looked really handsome in his shades. In the sheath dress he was equally at ease.
When his family joined us for the Toronto family photography, we headed outdoors to add more color to the album.
Mother-son duo looked so adorable in the photos.
Mitch posed happily with his family members.
The way his mother hugged him it was evident that he was a lovable boy.
Well, we have also fallen in love with his smile and innocent looks. We didn’t ask anyone to give any weird pose as we wanted to keep things natural.
The Toronto Bar Mitzvah photography photo session has come out so well – fresh, natural and celebrating the close ties that exist between family members.
We hope Mitch grows up into a handsome young boy and retains his innocence and that sweet smile that won our heart.
And of course our slideshow that will be displayed during the Bar Mitzvah Party.

Toronto Saxophone Engagement session Edi and Elinor
Toronto saxophone engagement session Edi and Elinor – of love, music and everything beautiful
Some people find love in music and some music in love, but rare are those who can complement these two in their lives.
We were lucky to have met a couple who have found musical love in their life. We are talking about Edi and Elinor and their love story. Let us watch their Toronto pre-wedding photo session and learn more about them.
Edi is very handsome. He has a sweet smile that can warm any heart. He is also one of the best Toronto saxophone players.
Elinor is also into music and hence we had to choose the background music carefully for this musical couple. After much debate, we settled for a piece by Triple Scoop Music which is very romantic.
Thankfully both Edi and Elinor liked it.
Elinor looked awesome in an electric blue short dress. For this young and vibrant couple, we shot the engagement session across a variety of locations.
A brick wall became our canvas to depict their love story. Just see how Edi and Elinor are glowing in this photo!
The very unique engagement ring had a big blue sapphire at the middle and looked so beautiful.
We treated the ring photos differently. We stayed away from flowers and opted for paper and dry logs to hold it. The photos have come out nicely, what do you say?
At downtown Toronto, we chose a beautiful location to shoot a few photos of this engagement session. The clear blue sky and its reflection in the lake illuminated the photos. Elinor and Edi looked so resplendent against the background.
When Elinor and Edi went for a complete makeover and chose red and black we also changed the location and headed towards greener pasture. The long blades of the grass created a lovely curtain when they got close. We took quite a few photographs of the couple for their Toronto engagement session against the green background.
It was time for some drama and style. With cowboy hats, the couple showed their attitude in front of our lens, the railway track providing the backdrop.
Next we hit the Graffiti alley to add colors to our snaps. Edi proposed to Elinor in front of a colorful graffiti. His saxophone was a witness to the moment. We took several photos of Edi with his instrument.
Oh boy! He looks so sexy with it. When Elinor also joined with her instrument, the photo session became livelier.
Edi and Elinor in white, against the Toronto skyline at night!
How colorful and passionate the photos look. It was the perfect way to end this prewedding photo session which we had enjoyed so much.
We wish Edi and Elinor a musical and love filled life ahead.

Unionville Ontario engagement Sylwia and Bruno
Prewedding photo shoot of Sylwia and Bruno – love that crosses boundaries
We have a love for open spaces, woods, trees and railway tracks. They always bring out the best in us. They help us to add vibrancy to the shots. This pre wedding photo session taken at the Unionville is a classic example of that.
Bruno and Sylwia look simple yet beautiful in the photos. Just take a look.
Bruno and Sylwia – a couple like no other
Coming from two different cultures, as Bruno is an Italian guy while Sylwia is a Polish girl, these two people have bridged many gaps. Their relationship has stood the test of time. Because as persons they are great too.
Although Sylwia is modern and confident, at heart she is just like a child. Bruno is very kind and affectionate.
We began the photo session with their car as it has played a great role in their courtship. We began with Sylwia and later on Bruno joined her.
The long grasses worked as a curtain as Sylwia and Bruno kissed each other. The couple wore coordinated dresses in white and blue which made the photos all the more beautiful.
The railway track was used as a symbol of their coming together and we took several shots of them standing on it and hugging each other.
They roamed around in Unionville and we kept on taking their pictures. At one point Sylwia sneaked from behind and pressed Bruno’s eyes. That shot looks so spontaneous!
The ring had a huge solitaire and demanded special treatment. The yellow flower held it lovingly close to its heart. We even used Sylwia’s shoes to hold the ring.
Sylwia and Bruno later on changed into formal outfits. While Sylwia chose black, Bruno stuck to white. However, they looked ravishing together. When they stood against red background the photos became so vibrant that we couldn’t help but click quite a few images .
As Sylwia and Bruno spent some “us” time and chatted and got close, we kept on capturing the priceless moments in our cameras.
“What girls want?” well Bruno seems to know that and we had a hearty laugh taking his photos along with the poster. They decided to go for another change with Sylwia opting for a polka dot black and white dress that made her look much younger and beautiful.
We went into an Italian restaurant and shot their photos enjoying their food and ice-cream. It’s always better to end something on a sweeter note and so we ended the photo shoot with ice cream and music.
May Sylwia and Bruno create their own paradise on earth and live happily ever after.

Toronto CN Tower engagement Alex and Anna
Engagement album of Alex and Anna – a modern tale of love and trust
What I like most about modern couples is their clarity of thoughts. They know what they want from relationships and find their mates accordingly.
Trust, mutual respect, and friendship get priority from them. They are so sure of what they want from life also.
Anna and Alex make such a modern day couple. Spirited, positive and sorted. They were even sure of how they wanted their engagement album to look and that gave us as their Toronto engagement photographer a lot of freedom and ideas too.
Anna and Alex – A modern and lovely couple
We didn’t opt for any fancy location for the photo session. A terrace of a high rise became our first location. Against the skyline of Downtown Toronto when Alex kissed Anna we knew this would become a classic photo.
Anna with her short, full sleeved blue dress and killer stilettos looked every bit of a diva. Alex was cool in his jeans and white tee shirt. This pair shares a lot of common interests, music being one of them.
So, we got them play a piano together. They looked so lovely in that snap.
Alex is very smart. He idolizes James Bond and so when we asked him to pose like Bond he was more than willing to do that. Well, the look he gave! Even Daniel Craig would have felt insecure.
We continued taking photos of the couple sharing some intimate moments.
To highlight their corporate lifestyle, we planned a snap in which Alex is seen working on his laptop with Anna standing behind. The glass of drink adds color to the image. We even got coffee cups with a beautiful design and Mr. and Mrs. written on one and Obridko on another.
We hope they would preserve those cups and look at them and fondly remember this day. At least, the photo would always be there to exude the warmth.
Alex and Anna wanted to be themselves in their engagement album and chose formal attire in black. While Anna wore an ankle length dress, Alex was comfortable in his office suit.
They are seen kissing against a big building and look very sexy together. In fact, the attraction that works between them has been captured well in this snap.
Alex and Anna call themselves Mr. and Mrs. Obridko soon and we loved the way they say it. We hope that they become real Mr. and Mrs. Obridko very soon and lead a life full of love, trust and fun.
An evening to remember- Anokhi awards and entertainment show
The red carpet has been rolled out for the special guests. Anokhi felicitated the achievers of the South Asian community in a glamorous event at the gorgeous Fairmont Royal York Hotel. And IsaacImage was present there to cover the glamorous evening.
Let the fun begin
The entire ballroom looked resplendent with huge chandeliers, round tables covered with rich blue fabric and contrasting red napkins.
A shot from above was enough to mesmerize anyone.
The décor also had a nice oriental touch with the big metal vases and elephants welcoming the guests.
Since L’Oreal was one of the major sponsors of this event, a lot of makeup kits were on display. There was a booth where celebs were given makeovers by eminent makeup artists.
The CEO of Anokhi Media was checking her emails even while doing the makeup and that spoke volumes about the hard work and dedication that has gone into making Anokhi Media such a successful name.
It was exciting to see the models getting the makeup. For us, it was a bonanza as we clicked on happily. Everyone was in a light mood and hence didn’t mind posing for us.
The lovely guests started appearing all dressed up and the program started with thanking Anokhi for all the hard work.
As the evening progressed, awards were announced and trophies were given to the super achievers like Pooja Handa, Veronica Chail, Rahul Khanna, and Vivek Shraya. Stand-up comedian Danish Anwar added the fun quotient to the evening. His acts had everyone in splits and we were overjoyed to capture those fun-filled moments in our lenses.
Zameer Rizi crooned a few songs that filled the air with music. He is an excellent performer and won a few hearts with his good looks and lethal moves!
Anokhi took the event to a different level by felicitating people who have made their impact on the society and that included LGBTQ activist and children author.
More glamor and beauty followed when Archana Kocchar came up with her fashion show. We simply had a ball with the camera and took as many snaps as we could.
Can any program by South Asians be complete without bhangra? Nooo. Manj Musik entertained the guests with his peppy music and electrifying dance moves.
After the event got over, the guests relaxed backstage and gave us more opportunities to capture them with their hair down. A lot of selfies and groupfies were taken along with the awards. The evening ended with a party that found the guests enjoying great food and drinks.
We congratulate Anokhi Media for hosting such a beautiful event and bringing into light the commendable work done by the South Asian people.
L’Oreal Paris one of the major sponsors of this event.
So of course behind the scenes 😉
No kidding here 😉 looks like they know what they doing 😉
Anokhi’s CEO Raj Girn always working, even during her makeup.

Wedding planned and Directed by Your Effortless Event | Elena Troyan
Toronto Wedding Photography by IsaacImage Wedding Studio
One King West hotel Wedding National Banquet Hall.
I love couples who are on the hunt for the best Wedding photographer in their area for their Big Day. They vigorously search online in every possible website or forum such as Weddingwire, Weddingful, Event source, the knot, Suhaag, and so on.
Visiting hundreds of local Toronto Bridal shows such as Canada’s Bridal Show, National Bridal show, Toronto Bridal show, or even a few luxurious ones like Wedluxe or Lavish Dulhan.
Using Google search at their best, they prepare a list of the questions before meeting with the photographer or any other wedding vendor.
The above are all examples of great ways to choose the right wedding vendor, and as a Toronto wedding photographer, I feel very honoured when a couple selects IsaacImage to capture their Big Day.
But now we have to move on to a completely different story that touches base on one specific wedding vendor, getting married, and in this specific case the kids preparing for their Big Day.
Recently, I received a call from a man named Genady who is the owner of Miracle Studio (One of Toronto’s largest and best wedding studios), requesting a personal meeting.
On a side note, I am pretty sure that in the span of his long lasting career, he had experience with not just every possible Toronto photographer but also award winning international photographers.
To my great surprise, this extremely well known gentleman in the wedding industry asked me to shoot his one and only daughter’s wedding. To say the least, this was an incredible honour for all of us at IsaacImage.
Each and every wedding is exceptionally unique, which means capturing these kinds of events is a huge responsibility on its own since there are no second chances.
As my personal hero and in my opinion one of the world’s best talented photographers, Jerry Ghionis say’s “You have to capture the wedding like your life depends on it”.
To be quite honest, this time I really… but really… experienced this sensation and my life truly depended on it 😉
But in all seriousness, Karina and Alex were an extremely easy going couple and a pleasure to work with.
They knew exactly what they wanted; everything from the King One West hotel to the last touches of their Chuppah décor; all of which was organized to the highest degree of perfection and accuracy.
Ok, enough talking ;), I’ll let you enjoy these images.
Part one – Wedding Details.
Part Two – Bride getting ready.
Part Three – Groom is Getting ready.
The Gangsta Boys 😉
Few Groom’s portraits never hurts
Part Four – First look.
You never really can stage those moments and thats why it’s alway so emotional when Bride and Groom seeing each other for the first time.
One King West vault. Very unique place for the Wedding photo session.
University of Toronto also highly recommended place for Wedding photos.
Gorgeous Bridal Bouquets, created by “Flowers Time”
Knox College Toronto
Part Five – The Reception.
The reception held place in one of the biggest Russian Wedding venues in GTA – “National Restaurant and Banquet Hall Toronto”
Chuppah and all the Wedding decor was also crafted by uber talented Alina from “Flowers Time”
Part Six – Ketubah signing ceremony and Bedeken
Part Seven – Chuppah.
Breaking the glass at Jewish Wedding it’s a must.
Breaking the glass can remind a marrying couple that life holds sorrow as well as joy. Standing under their marriage canopy a bride and groom are at the pinnacle of happiness.
Breaking the glass reminds them of their commitment to each other also in future hard times.
And Part Eight – The Wedding Party.
MC of the event Emil Yalizerov owner of Best Toronto Wedding Entertainment companies – “Party Crew”
Father and daughter dance was very emotional.
Mother and Son dance
Very unique in GTA Fire show or Barrels on Fire from one and only – “Party Crew”

What a wonderful event was planned and organized by an amazing Toronto Event Panning Boutique – “Fab Fete“.
Not that I expected anything less. From the live music strings duo at the entry to the hanging champagne, have to admit you impress every time.
I loved the personalized marshmallows !!! Beautiful gift bags. Hot chocolate station at this nice frizzy weather was exactly what was needed 😉
The greats events planners make the greatest parties, makes sense to me.
