One of the amazing things about our work is that we get to photograph all types of weddings, go to all kinds of locations, and experience all sorts of rituals first-hand. In this case, we had the opportunity to shoot Christine and Felix’s contemporary wedding, which happened at Columbus Event Centre in Toronto, with a stop at Downsview Park before going to the reception at La Primavera. These are straightforward facts, and they’re all true, but what’s more important is the things that are more difficult to accurately describe: the sense of anticipation as Christine sat on the bed looking at her dress before getting ready, the playfulness of Felix and his groomsmen, the emotion when they finally saw each other – the big reveal! – and then that moment when they both officially became husband and wife. How do you tell the story of why someone falls in love, of what compels them to tell the whole world about it? I’ve attempted to do it in images here, and hope that this selection of photographs can convey, in some tenuous way, the sheer beauty of this awesome couple’s big day.
Christine and Felix, many, many congrats, I hope you have as much fun for the rest of your marriage as you did on your wedding day!
Oh, and by the way, you learn more about their story, and to see Christine and Felix’s engagement photos here.
Been very excited about sharing these images from Winnie and Jason’s wedding for a while now. These two lovebirds both went to Queen’s University, and eventually met at Telus in Toronto (hence why we did their engagement session there). Now, four years and one Bermuda proposal later, they’ve finally tied the knot!
Full-of-life, fun-and-quirky, food-loving Winnie and Jason’s beautiful wedding day took place at the Old Mill in Ancaster, with a stint at Tiffany Falls for some couple photos. Together with Marek, I had a wonderful time photographing their special day, one that was filled with beautiful sunlight, candid moments, and a whole lot of yellow – seriously, check out those groomsmen socks and yellow ‘bridal’ boots!
Hope you enjoy the images as much as we enjoyed shooting them!
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
