Photography - Open for business

May 28, 2015  •  1 Comment

As a wedding photographer in Toronto, I do it all.  Product shots, portraits, family portraits, infants, landscape, macro shots.  The wedding encompasses all the skills of photography and you need all the equipment to back you up.

The prelude to the wedding is the engagement shoots.  While still finding a way to be creative, get your ISO right, your F-stop right, your shutter speed right and at the same time getting the couple to be as relaxed as they can be.  This is not an easy task, but I'm always up for the challenge.

There's so many awesome pictures to choose from, but I usually cut it down to about 100 and then out of that I have my top 10.  I like moments that are real, but I also like moments that are photographically well executed.  The right lens was being used with the right settings at the right time to capture the perfect moment.

This was one of those moments. Not because it was staged or it's technically perfect, but it was completely natural.  I just went inside, told them to sit beside each other and hug, and from there, the love just took over.  The window from this cafe wasn't a normal window, it was on a diagonal slant, which made the reflection not straight out, but to the ground.  The gravel gave an interesting effect to the shot and the old lady in the background walking by gives a sense of how short life is.  There's foreground, there's a background, there's the window effect, the focus is right on and the exposure value was just right.

Isabella and Scott are a lovely couple who are madly in love.  Even after years of being together, you can see that familiarity has not stolen away the magic.  What I needed to do was to spark it.  This is where the acting and modelling from my past comes in to rescue the day.  All by God's grace, we had a wonderful experience.
