I met Carla (Nick’s sister) while photographing Francine and Nick’s wedding last year. Carla really loved what we did for her brother and wanted us to be her wedding photographers as well. We were extremely thrilled and honoured when she commissioned us to document her and Ryan’s wedding. I got to know Carla and Ryan closer throughout the year and more so at the engagement session at Liberty Village.
The ceremony and reception both took place at the beautiful Liuna Gardens in Stoney Creek. The day was filled with lots of love and laughter. The sun played hide and seek during the ceremony and photo shoot which gave Marek and I a workout while we rapidly had to readjust our cameras for the right exposure. Liuna Gardens is a great venue with lots of nice gardens, water fountains and nice landscapes. I enjoyed the setting, however I’m a big fan of walking outside of the beaten path and trying something different. I also love contrast. So instead of doing the whole shoot in the area that’s “desirable” for most photographers, we ventured a bit outside the confines of the garden and into the “we don’t want you to see this” section. This is where we found the John Deer tractor and piles of skids. I found this area to be very interesting, unique and fun. It allowed us to create some fine art wedding images that I know Carla and Ryan will enjoy for generations to come.
Carla and Ryan – Once again, a big congratulations to the both of you!!!
Hope you enjoy these images, and feel free to leave a comment or share with your friends
A few weeks ago I had an awesome engagement shoot with Felix and Christine. Felix’s two loves were at this shoot; Christine and Genny. Both fought for the spotlight, so we solved that by doing the first part of the shoot in a more casual downtown atmosphere. Then Christine and Felix changed into their evening wear and it was time for Genny to get ready for the action as well. One of the locations that I really wanted to shoot was under the Gardiner Expressway. It turned out that it was a bit muddy under there and the ground was very uneven. Unbeknownst to me, it was Genny’s first time “off roading” and she did get stuck in the mud, causing a bit of a panic. Luckily, we got Genny free and positioned her in the perfect spot. We had to take out some rags and give her a bit of a cleaning, and finally we were all ready to do the shoot.
We featured Ewa and Alex’s engagement photos on the blog on June 5th, but as you can imagine, video sometimes takes a little bit more time, so it wasn’t quite ready right there and then. But a month after, it’s ready and approved by Ewa (and Alex, I imagine… hehe!) and I can share it with you! This is a no-dialogue/interview edit. To me, the neatest thing about it is Ewa’s slightly off-key choice of music (‘The Only One’ by The Black Keys)… at first I thought it may be too dramatic, but after cutting images to it, and giving the piece a slightly vintage-y look, I actually really like the effect!
Well, I won’t keep you any longer… just wanted to share. Maybe it’ll give some of you ideas (i.e. if you really like your dogs, why not bring them along?). If you like it, leave a comment or share it. Or ask questions if you want? In any case, that’s it for now. Take care! – Christian
Toward the end of 2011, we shot the wedding of Milesa and Allan and had a great time with all of their friends and family. And so when Allan’s brother Andrew contacted me about shooting his wedding, I was very excited to be with all of them once more. I met up with Andrew, we talked about what they wanted and how we could achieve it, and hop, we were booked!
Then we shot Karen and Andrew’s Love Story at Pearson International Airport and I got to know more about the things they had been through in their (mostly long-distance) relationship, and just, generally, about them. Very inspirational stuff about how two people can really support each other through tough times and have absolute faith in their relationship and the fact that they are made for each other.
And so by the time the wedding day came, I felt so close to them that I decided to surprise them with a Same-Day Edit, to thank them for having been amazing all along. The day went by smoothly, and while we faced some challenges in editing (your usual race-against-the-clock situation), the stars ultimately aligned and we were able to show all the guests present at the wedding what they hadn’t see of Karen and Andrew’s wedding. I think they were quite pleased, and so was I, happy to have been able to share our perspective of the day with them.
Well, nothing much left to say but to wish one of our favourite, most down-to-earth couples, a super happy life together! I hope that being together in the same city at last will allow you to keep growing as individuals, as a family, and who knows, as parents?
