• ilo - Finnish for "happy, joyful, filled with glee"

    Wouldn't you want to look at your pictures and feel these emotions? We would, and we want you to as well.

    We are Nik and Dana Fiorito, and we're so happy you dropped by!

Haley and Josh’s magically cold engagment session.

We generally don’t do a tonne of shooting in the winter. We find that it’s just too cold and it’s hard to have a good, lengthy session if everyone is shivering. But, Josh works out of town and we didn’t have a lot of options for an engagment shoot in warmer weather, so we just ran with it. We ended up having to hop into our cars mid way through to warm up, but that winter light made all the numb limbs worth it!

Jordan and Thomas

These two are peanut butter and jelly. We know this because they are family and we get to witness their cohesiveness whenever we want. Take that, universe. Whenever we need a dose of unfettered love we just have to go to a family dinner and watch them. Our kids have also noted how Thomas looks at Jordan; it’s cute really. How full our family is of loving couples. We are thankful. And we were doubly thankful to be asked to photograph their day. It ended up being an incredible day that somehow wasn’t too cold given that it was the middle of winter. The sun came out to play and we literally felt like we were in a snow globe when we were getting ready in the morning. Everything was just perfect.
As always, a big thank you to the Nor’Wester Hotel for such an amazing venue. Grace Church never disappoints for a beautiful ceremony and Kathryn Kinisky of Desserts Only Thunder Bay was on fleek with her incredible cupcakes. I seriously ate a few too many of those. (Can we just rewind for a second and talk about how relevant I am in using ‘on fleek’….for real)

Without further ado….and without anymore rambling from me. Here are some swoon-worthy photos of their pretty day! Oh and if you’d like to see a cameo from Nik and myself…just make it to the end of this post!
