We often photograph weddings where one or both partners have children. Our approach creatively acknowledges the importance of children in weddings. We never loose sight of the fact that the wedding is very significant for them. It is their day too.
The bride and groom frequently include the child or children in the wedding ceremony, perhaps as a ring bearer, flower girl or junior bridesmaid. Their participation in the wedding day guarantees that they will feel important.
When children are involved in the wedding, we make sure to take photographs that will be meaningful to them as they move forward in their new family. Our photographs reflect children’s personalities, creating a genuine family dynamic that includes the thoughts and feelings of everyone involved. We take extra care to create opportunities to help children feel comfortable in front of the camera, and we are happy to say that we have never met a child who didn’t enjoy being photographed!
Parents and step-parents have been thrilled to discover that our approach can be very memorable, dignified, low-stress and certainly not overly sentimental. This is particularly true when teenagers are part of the wedding ceremony. In these instances, we are particularly respectful of the “cool” factor.
We were invited to photograph a lovely wedding at the Millcroft Inn & Spa in Southern Ontario where three beautiful children acquired a wonderful new mom. As you can see from the photos below, when the right approach is taken the results are joy and love filled. Look at how excited the children are when their dad and new mom are saying their vows! Children in weddings always make a marriage ceremony richer and more meaningful, and our Toronto wedding photographers are very pleased to be able to contribute memory rich images.
