With the windows rolled down and making the 2 hour trek north on country backroads, it came apparent why I love back country driving. The small villages and open country side creates a more relaxed driving experience then the busy and craziness of the 400 series highways. The beauty of the rolling hills in Caledon and beyond is breath taking, but the ever present rain clouds that are lingering will surly make this day interesting.
Upon arriving at the Mashinter’s Residence in Angus we where greeted by Lilly, a Beautiful Mini Australian Shepard who Amanda and Andrew recently rescued. It also came apparent that Amanda’s favourite colour was purple, and we just had to use the walls of her old bedroom as a backdrop for some of the photos.
Ivy is a Quant little town or some will call an intersection just south of Angus. It had the honour last year to be the host site of the International Plowing Match which we where the official event photographer. Ivy was also host to Amanda and Andrew’s Wedding Ceremony which was held at the Orange brick Ivy Hall. This is where we first got a glimpse at Amanda’s father Paul’s fully restored 1948 car and his 1948 pickup truck which was once owned by his father.
After the ceremony and with the Thunder starting to rumble we quickly headed over to the Turnbull Family Farm, and took photos with the old cars, Amanda’s beloved horse Missy, and with Andrew’s Grandfather’s John Deer Tractor which Andrew lovingly restored. Just as we finished up photos with the tractor the rain started to fall, and we found refuge in the old barn before heading to Drysdale Tree Farm for the reception. The Rain Continued throughout the evening and made those rolling back country roads more of an adventure on the way home.
What a great day and a fantastic couple. Enjoy the photos.

We begin the process by downloading our cards then browsing and selecting our favourites. From there we quickly edit each selected image for viewing – there are no special filters, no photoshop, nothing crazy just the images in their purest form.

We would not change a thing, it was the most perfect day, it was the best day of our lives.
Best wedding related decision was to make sure everything was indoors and to have a back up plan for pictures incase it rained. Made things less stressful. Thankfully we were lucky and squeaked our pictures in before the rain
We can’t pick just one Favourite detail; All the decorating that Vicki and her crew from Posh Beyond events did was beyond amazing.

“Having Kurt from Two Tone Studios for our engagement pictures and wedding pictures was one of the best decisions we made. Kurt is a super friendly, easy and fun to work with kind of guy. He is so talented at what he does, he listens to all things you want from your pictures, as well adds his creative touch to make the most stunning pictures. We cant thank him enough for everything. I would recommend Two Tone Studios to anyone looking to have beautiful, creative, and long lasting memory pictures done. ”
