Laurena & James Downton Abbey Wedding

Laurena and James were married Aug 10, 2014 at Casa Loma in Toronto. They traveled all the way from New York, to be married here amongst family and friends.  We started the day capturing them getting ready at The Marriott Bloor, Yorkville and then headed down to the beautiful Castle for the ceremony, pictures and reception. Laurena and James are incredible people: so kind, full of life and totally in love! We were so excited to spend the day capturing them, their family and friends. It was so hard to narrow down these photos – there were just so many that we fell in love with… how couldn’t we with a backdrop like Casa Loma and these two beautiful people. So much time and effort was spent on every detail, from the outfits, to the decor, food and even the beautiful antique tea cups that were hand filled to make beautiful take home candles… A stunning wedding, true to their Downton Abbey theme.

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.
