The personality and aesthetics of the bride and groom sets the tone of the wedding, and the approach for the wedding photography. We never make assumptions. During our first meeting with a couple we spend a lot of time talking about the type of wedding photography they would like.
Some couples only want candids with a few shots of family groupings. Others place an emphasis on family groupings, and great semi-formal portraits of themselves. Blended families are often very keen on having many shots of their kids.
Any number of factors can influence how the wedding day unfolds, and the photography. For example, if time permits, we will photograph the bride stepping into her dress and being laced up by her friends. But, then again, some brides consider this to be a private moment and choose to not have the dressing part of their wedding documented. We respect all decisions.
We recently shot a wedding at Casa Loma, a Toronto wedding venue and tourist destination. Fun was the operative word. How could it not be when the groom could barely contain his happiness! We loved shooting off the cuff, and had loads of fun as did the couple and their wedding party. We especially loved the Corvette. What a great prop!
