Sarah & Ryan – You Rock!

Sarah and Ryan are awesome! So fun to work with, easy going, fun folks. So when we asked if they were up for doing some night shots, they were game… and SOOOO HAPPY they were willing to leave the party for a few minutes so that we could capture this night shot! Downtown toronto, with only cabs on the road … absolutely incredible. This image would be nothing without you two!
Stay tuned for more shots in their sneak peek (posted soon).

The Beauty of Variety

Being professional photographers, we can’t stress enough the importance of variety in wedding photography. In our opinion, a wedding shot in only one style doesn’t translate into a true representation of the story of your day. Moods and tonality go hand in hand and having the ability to adjust the style of the photograph to represent the emotion at that time of day is key. Variety is also created in the post production process which today is a huge part of the artistry of photography. We always believe in shooting correctly in camera but adjusting colour, changing images to black and white, creating “dirty” or old fashioned imagery is all part of the post production process that helps to tell a story. Check out the example below from Sarah & Ryan’s wedding on Aug 8th, 2014. We shot both image at St. James park. The image on the left is vibrant and lively while the image on the right is grainy reminiscent of black and white film… two compositions almost identical but totally different in feel and mood.

Yalda & Oscar’s Incredible Downtown Wedding!

Yalda & Oscar were married at the Rosewater Supper Club on Aug 3, 2014. We had the most incredible time with these two. So  in- love and completely happy; no stress and completely ready to have fun and pose it up for the camera – they were an absolute pleasure to shoot, not to mention hang out with! We started with the guys at Oscar and Yalda’s condo downtown. Then headed out to the King Edward hotel to capture the girls getting ready. The reveal and photos were all done near and around the Rosewater Supper Club where both the Persian Ceremony and Reception were held. It was an incredible wedding with the most fabulous people. Check out the sneak peek below.

The Difference Between Complex and Complicated.

After shooting this image at Jenny & Colman’s night-time engagement shoot, it occurred to us a principle in art which is often over looked.

Good shots don’t need to be complicated, but they should be complex. (Don’t get us wrong, there is nothing wrong with simple and minimalist, but we do think you need to understand the rules before you break them). This shot is by no means hard to create; it was done with one simple flash, on the floor shining at the couple (not even a light stand!) You could place a single flash in a million different ways to light them, but it’s this way that gives the huge shadows on the simple wall behind them. and yes, the über cool mirror reflection in the puddle in front of them is an added layer of awesome. Simple, yet complex. The shot is basically boiled down to 5 elements: a couple; a wall; a ground, shadows,a mirror reflection of it all.

Looking forward to shooting their wedding in the fall!
