Our Top 10... things we think you should know!
Proud and honored to be a wedding photographer - We love weddings, and enjoy the whole event. We have fun with the bride and groom and enjoy hanging out with the bridal party
Ultimate privilege - To us it is the ultimate privilege to be at someone's special day. The pay off for us is not just the thank you cards and the nice emails, it is seeing the faces of our bride and grooms when they see their images for the first time and relive their wedding day as we saw it.
The documentary wedding photographers - We are like the journalist who reported what they saw... we are everywhere but no where, recording what we see, not improving it, not staging it, not prompting it, just capturing at its best – naturally...
The silent observer - We often call ourselves the silent observer, capturing the moments as well as the formal family pictures.
Looking your best - People will always look their best when they're not thinking about photography. We believe you can't pose people naturally; you just need to be present and enjoy your wedding day. During the wedding day we often use longer lenses to keep our distance so the photography looks natural.
The ultimate memory in 20 years time - We bring art to a wedding, creating and capturing memories and emotions... after the party has finished, the cake has been eaten, and the dress is in a box, the only thing left is the photography. I want our bide and grooms to look at their wedding pictures in 20 years time and still be able to feel the emotions they felt on their wedding day.
No chance of a re-shoot, weddings are a one off event! - Wedding photography is the most challenging type of photography, it is not easy, you need a lot of experience, we cannot have a bad day – there is no chance of a re-shoot
Right place... right time... - To capture those moments you need a lot of past experience to know and understand the natural flow of a wedding. Most weddings are similar but often run very differently. We have shoot hundreds of weddings, infact well over 1000 weddings between us.
Multi cultural - We have photographed not only Canadian weddings through all seasons including winter weddings but we have shot Chinese weddings, Armenian weddings, Indian weddings, Portuguese weddings, Greek weddings and Romanian weddings - all of which have very different traditions and events that we fully understand.
So what's the cost to buy the original digital files? - Your original digital files, which are all in colour, are already included in the prices advertised on this website. We don't want to keep your photographs, let's face it, you will have hired us to capture your photographs, not keep them. All our couples receive all the photographic images we capture and copied to a DVD.
Weddings deserve the very best professional camera equipment- We use the very best tools available to us to create the images. We have been 100% digital since 2003 and have enjoyed being part of the evolution of the digital SLR camera and software technology. Digital now gives us amazing results way beyond what we seen in film. We have always used the very high-end professional digital equipment and have changed our sets of cameras 6 times since 2003 to keep up with the ever changing technology. We have also changed our computers every year since 2003 and have been using accurate colour corrected dual 30 inch screens since 2005!
Back in the 20th century even high-end film film cameras were cheap in comparison to today, now in the 21st century we have spent vastly more on our hardware since 2003 than we ever did when we shot in film.
We all know from the multitude of magazines that the final printed image you see is somewhat different than the original image. All of them have been manipulated and 'touched up' in one way or another. There is a real art to this and therefore we take our time with our editing and use top of range software to get your wedding images to a point where they are as good as they can be. Turning up on your wedding day is all about capturing the RAW Images, the magic takes place afterwards.
What's the value of those edited images?
This is the bit most photographers do not want you to read.
Having your full resolution edited files (i.e. files absolutely perfect and ready for printing) means you are not only able to print your photos straight away, but with the many readily available online book making sites you can have fun making your own wedding book by simply dragging and dropping files from the edited folder into downloadable free templates. If this is something that you aren't comfortable with then we can do it for you.
