Hey all! Claudia here writing to you in Sauble beach — about 2.5-3 hours away from my usual end of the woods. Justin and I are here for this mini destination wedding and I thought it’d be a good opportunity to share with you guys what’s typically in my personal bag when travelling for work.
Both Karen and Keith are originally from Ireland, but they met here in Toronto! (Can we just say though, Irish accents are the best.) Because they started their relationship here in Toronto, it was important to them to have the city as their backdrop, so we headed down to harbourfront for this shoot.
When Freddy came to us for some portraits of his team, we already had some ideas in mind. Freddy’s team deals with high-end transactions so the feel of the promo material needed to reflect that. As a result, we chose a location that was pretty badass — a 5 million dollar penthouse on King West! Woo! It was a perfect backdrop of that high-end, luxe feel with gorgeous interior designs …
Join us behind the scenes at our last wedding for the 2016 season (but not of 2016) we we talk about our Reveal setup, shoot portraits of the entire wedding party in downtown Toronto, and reveal a couple of our tricks/hacks on how to hang the dress in a hotel room and shooting the rings in dark places. Check it out!
If you’ve met any of us from the Wedding Editorials team, you’ll know we are all dog lovers. So when Nicole and Dylan asked if they could bring their adorable little puppies to their engagement shoot, we were 100% down. Because engagement sessions are only made better by a little bit of puppy love, amiright.
Here we are on site all day shooting Sharon and Alex’s wonderful wedding. Includes some tips on how we choose backgrounds for shooting details, a peek on how we break it down on the dance floor and the operatic theme that somehow took over… lol Check it out!
Quick story: Claudia and Justin had been telling me a lot about Fan Ho, a celebrated and award winning Chinese photographer. (Side note, if you’ve never seen his work, it’s worth a look!) As I began to look through some of his work, I was so captivated by how he used light – particularly how he played with harsh light and shadows. Generally, I tend to avoid harsh light, always opting to shoot in the shade, or to back light the subject so that the light is even and flattering. But I started to experiment on my own with more “Fan Ho inspired” photos.
Hello, Justin here reporting on the 2nd half of our back to back destination weddings! I was in Toronto less than 10hrs after flying in from Mexico(Jessica & Johns Cancun wedding) and was right back at the airport heading to Miami. There, a cruise ship awaited destined for the Bahamas.
