We have had the pleasure of shooting so many friends and family members of Marianna and Andre that we feel like we are part of their family. It was an honor to be chosen to capture their and we loved every minute hanging out with these two fabulous people. We even created a same day slideshow of their wedding day to be shown during the reception – because Marianna and Andre’s wedding ceremony did not include vows, they had these beautiful little vow books that they wrote to eachother and shared during their gift openings. We included some of those vows before the slideshow began so that their family and friends could witness the love they share. OMG – and that first song in the slideshow was performed and recorded by Andre himself – beautiful!!!
Isn’t it nice when you get perfect weather for your wedding day?
It’s been a summer full of scorching hot days and pouring rain, but the stars seemed to align for Olivia and Adam.
Starting at the very house that Olivia grew up in, surrounded by the couple’s friends and family, we had a blast with both the bride and groom before doing an emotional reveal on a quiet side street in downtown Toronto.
From there, the day took us to scenic Kleinburg, home of the doctor’s house – which features the most adorable rustic wedding chapel, and beautiful grounds to shoot on.
Places like Klienburg really let our same day edits shine, as they give us lots of opportunities to create unique, beautiful moments that let our couples be themselves, while also giving us great shots for you to show off to your guests later that night. Check out the Sneak Peek and Same Day Video edit below!
So finding the perfect photographer and cinematographers can be a daunting task. Not only do you have to LOVE the work you see, but you have to find people that you get along with. Let’s be honest, you will probably hang out with your photographers more than anyone else on your wedding day lol! Picking from a portfolio book or a quick phone call session might feel impossible… so we thought, let’s show all of our future bride and groom’s out there, what it’s like to work with us! We have shot over 1000 weddings and still find inspiration and fun in each one we do. After all, our job is to capture joy, fun, laughter and add to the good times 🙂
Check out the Behind the Scenes film – showcasing what its like to work with our team of talented artists.
Without a doubt, the best part of photographing weddings in Toronto is the multiculturalism. This summer we had the pleasure of photographing Christina and Justin’s traditional Korean ceremony, held at the gorgeous party room in their condo – could this get any more “Toronto?”. It was an awesome affair with their closest friends and family, wonderful outfits, hilarious games, karaoke, and gorgeous weather. Take a peek!

Congratulations to Hatice and Ryan who were married at City Hall in Toronto and then had an amazing party at Cluny Bistro in Distillery. We loved every minute of shooting this intimate affair. Surrounded by close family and friends, this wedding truly had it all. The wedding had a rustic French vintage theme because of the couples love for Paris and old movies. There was so much attention to detail – from old tea cups which they made into candles, tarnished silver platters, rustic pails for the flowers with soft pink and white flowers. AND… CHECK OUT the groom’s jacket – wow! Love Love Love!!!! A perfect compliment to the bride’s Galina wedding dress.

Décor/Linens: “Chairman Mills for the linen and décor was handmade and shopped around vintage stores and online. Our theme is rustic vintage French because I love Paris and old movies and am a mushy romantic at heart. You’ll see elements of vintage with the old tea cups which we made into candles, tarnished silver platters, rustic with use of pails for the flowers, romance with the soft pink and white flowers flower, French because of the venue (Cluny Bistro) and pops of colour. My friend was sweet enough to hand make our seating chart which is an old frame which she painted and glued a new backing”.

There is nothing more wonderful than a product that combines both of our favorite aspects of photography – albums and images. A device that allows you to hold hundreds of digital photos all at the palm of your hand. So what is this full package product you may ask? A USB drive, of course!
We are so excited to talk about our brand new custom flash drives from USB Memory Direct. For starters, let us just say we are obsessed with how great they look. These walnut colored flash drives add an extra sprinkle of elegance to our wedding packages that we’ve been craving. Especially, with how flawless our laser engraved logo looks on the front.
Flash drives are very important for our wedding packages. There is nothing we love more than sharing all the memories from your special day with you on one handy USB drive. No matter how big or small a wedding may be, handing out a beautiful wooden flash drive is much more meaningful to us then emailing you a Dropbox link. That’s why we give flash drives to every one of our newlywed couples as a memorable keepsake that they can always cherish.
Our USB drives are a product we are proud to have to represent our brand. Thank you USB Memory Direct for these awesome flash drives! Check out their website to learn more about their flash drives.
Congratulations to Jaana and Paul on a stunning summer wedding at Willow Springs Winery in Stouffville, Ontario. This Thursday wedding had it all – beautiful weather, stunning scenery, and two fabulous people completely in love. AND!!!! We found out that Jaana actually used her mother’s wedding dress from 1978 with a new lace overlay – how special is that! Absolutely adore that the wedding gown has so much meaning.
