Scarlet's Story

My name is Scarlet O’Neill & here is my story. I am a photographer. I am an artist. I am a lover. I am passionate & I stand by my person. I live each day to it’s fullest, fantastically, gracefully, courageously & full of heart. Photography is my way of bringing some sweetness to the world. I am a soundtrack queen. Play me a song and I can tell you what movie it’s from. I eat cookie dough out of the Pillsbury package - by the fridge, door still ajar. I squeal with excitement and sometimes jump up & down from it. I look ten years younger than I am, but feel ten years older. I have been photographing since I could hold a camera. I love taking photographs more than anything else. I love making people smile. I love capturing moments for a lifetime of smiles. I love getting to know the people in front of my camera, through and through. Be good to me and I will give you my heart. I want my images to mean something & I want them to evoke laughter, tears and ear-to-ear deep down inside happiness. I want you to see how beautiful you are, how in love that special someone is with YOU. I believe that every single bride is beautiful. I believe in love at first sight. My style is creative, elegant, quirky, modern & vintage, but beyond anything else- timeless. I love old love stories, new love tales and endless kisses. I will take real photos of you & your loved ones. I will show you things that you may have missed or never known. I love fairy tales, but I double love real stories. I can’t wait to tell yours. I really, really love what I do.

close story

You and me were always with each other
Before we knew the other was ever there
You and me, we belong together
Just like a breath needs the air

I told you if you called I would come runnin’
Across the highs, the lows and the in-betweens
You and me we’ve got two minds that think as one
And our hearts march to the same beat

They say everything it happens for a reason
You can be flawed enough, but perfect for a person
Someone who will be there for you when you fall apart
Guiding your direction when you’re riding through the dark

Oh that’s you and me

You and me we’re searching for the same light
Desperate for a cure to this disease
Well some days are better than others
But I fear no thing as long as you’re with me

They say everything it happens for a reason
You can be flawed enough, but perfect for a person
Someone who will be there for you when you fall apart
Guiding your direction when you’re riding through the dark

And they say everything it happens for a reason
You can be flawed enough, but perfect for a person
Someone who will be there when you start to fall apart
Guiding your direction when you’re riding through the dark

Oh that’s you and me
Oh that’s you and me
Oh that’s you and me
That’s you and me
That’s you and me

‘You & Me’ – Dallas Green & Pink

These lovebirds were married this past Sunday, but it would be miss if I didn’t share with you this endearing collection of photographs we captured before they become husband and wife.

What I love deeply about the couples I have the pleasure of working with is that they share with me their story. They are completely and totally genuine stories about how they met, fell in love and decided that this person was ‘their person’.

This is the story of Lauren & Derek.

They arranged to meet for the first time in the Annex. She crossed the street on Bloor & Bathurst and saw him in the window of a coffee shop. He was drinking a hot beverage and she was suddenly baffled at why he would do that on such a hot summer day as that one. But, nevertheless, hot beverage or not, Derek won her over where they continued their date on the rooftop of Paupers Pub. They walked to the subway station and said their goodbyes only to see each other a few days later and every day after that.

Their wedding was just like their engagement shoot, exactly them and I cannot wait to share that in good time. But until then, here’s a little trip down their memory lane or otherwise known as the heart of the Annex in Toronto where these two fell in love.

Love you, mean it xo

You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.

Y.E.S.

It’s a three letter word. And, it holds a great deal of meaning, life changing results come from it and it can definitely make you take those big ol’ steps.

But when you know, you know. And, at that moment and all the moments after that, there is no other answer than, “Yes”. A little while ago, Andrew asked Nicole a very important question, and her answer was of course, “yes” and I cannot wait to see her say it again (on their wedding day in front of friends and family).

Nicole & Andrew (and I) spent an afternoon a little bit ago basking in all things delightful; like ice cream, park adventures, queen street, patios with fries and beer and good, strike that, GREAT company. Their love makes you feel like you can conquer anything, and really puts into perspective how simple, sweet and forever love is. It makes all the fuss, all the bs (pardon my french) and anything other than wonderful, just go away, because when it’s good, its really, really good and why would you want anything else?!?

Yes, yes, yes.

Thank you Nicole & Andrew, I cannot wait to see you on your wedding day. Love you, mean it xo.
