From Day To Night

Engagement shoots have gone from one hour sessions to afternoons, turning into evenings, and multiple locations..
Rhiannon Ball and Brian Scott started with their photographer Eva Derrick at the Block Three Brewing Company in St. Jacobs Ontario, then it was off to the local record shop and   finally, a stoll in the woods to the covered bridge.

We are loving Eva’s use of light at the couples final destination. Mixing light is not an easy task, and Eva has done it here beautifully.eva_derrick_photography_15 eva_derrick_photography_2 eva_derrick_photography_3 eva_derrick_photography_4 eva_derrick_photography_5eva_derrick_photography_6 eva_derrick_photography_7toronto_wedding_photogrpaher_2toronto_wedding_photogrpaher_3eva_derrick_photography_8 toronto_wedding_photogrpaher_1eva_derrick_photography_10 eva_derrick_photography_11 eva_derrick_photography_1eva_derrick_photography_14eva_derrick_photography_16

LOVE In The Heart Of Toronto

Wedding photographer, Rudo Vacula from Toronto Wedding Studios, and florist, Sarah Wu of Petite Studio, submitted Jenny and Artie’s urban wedding that took place last August at the Distillery District. I LOVE the elegant simplicity to every aspect of this wedding. 

Sarah asked Jenny & Artie to describe their wedding: “I would say the two words that best describe our wedding are rustic and romantic. We chose Archeo as our venue for several reasons. As an urban couple, naturally we wanted to have our wedding in the city and the historic charm of the Distillery District was the perfect backdrop for our rustic theme. We loved the exposed wood beams and pipes, the beautiful outdoor space and the restaurant was the perfect size for an intimate wedding.”

Destination ~ Prince Edward County

Toronto wedding photographer, Johnny Lam , photographed Bethany & Sandy’s wedding, Prince Edward County. Here are his thoughts on this unique affair.

Bethany and Sandy got married at a family farm in Prince Edward County.  I’ve photographed over 200 weddings in my career, this is my first time seeing the groom and the groomsmen dressed in denim and tweed. The combination was fantastic and truly fitting for their rustic fall wedding.

Bethany reached out to a county farmer who provided her with the most unique mode of transportation to bring her and her bridesmaids to the ceremony, bales of hay on the back of a 1940s pick up truck.

The reception had a relaxed homespun feel with beautiful vintage decor and antique china dinnerware. Guests enjoyed refreshments and music amongst curated antiquities while I photographed Bethany and Sandy along the banks of Lake Ontario and in the adjoining farmers fields.

A Wedding In Prince Edward County

Cindy Howes and Michael Chabior met at a meditation retreat, it seems only fitting they would choose such a beautiful, serene, location for their wedding, the The Pond at Fields on Westlake in Prince Edward County.

Photos by Tied Photos & Films: and words from Cindy and Michael.

Your best moment of the day:
The wedding ceremony. We truly felt like we were embarking on an adventure of a lifetime together. The overwhelming amount of love and support we felt from our friends and family is beyond words. We’ll never forget that feeling.

Favourite wedding detail:
The burlap and vintage lace table runners. Since we had 30ft harvest tables to accommodate the family style communal meal, we made custom runners. All in all, five 30ft runners for the guest tables and two 10ft runners for the head table. They came out beautifully and were perfect for the rustic vintage look we were after.

Love Shoot

I love this photo shoot, why?… because it’s not and engagement shoot or a wedding it was inspired solely by love.

Here is the story as told by Laurel…

“Graham and I met at Bar Neon. Graham kept coming into the Bar and chatting me up and being really charming and sweet, I would say: “Graham you are my favorite person”, finally he asked me out. Our first date was a drive to Winnipeg, a 4 day date! It went REALLY well, we fell in love and continue to love every minute that we’re together.

We met Toronto photographer Niv Shimshon through friends and asked him to take a couple photos of us. We had him shoot us in our natural environment, Bloor st. west Toronto, at our local diner, sharing our love of coffee, and in Graham’s inspiring art studio. It was a lovely day, a beautiful love, and now we have wonderful photos to reminisce about days together”
