Tanya + Michael — Me without you is like Mowgli without Balu.

Every once in a while, a set­ting or place becomes such a strong third char­ac­ter in the sto­ry that its pres­ence is felt through­out the entire piece. Such is the case for Tanya and Michael’s wed­ding film, where the breath­tak­ing land­scapes of Huntsville, Ontario helped estab­lish and con­nect the dif­fer­ent ele­ments in this beau­ti­ful nar­ra­tive.

When we first start­ed tak­ing to T + M about wed­ding videog­ra­phy over a year and a half ago, they men­tioned Deer­hurst Resort was a place that was dear to their heart. So nat­u­ral­ly, Michael got ready at the resort, Tanya spent the morn­ing at their cot­tage on the Deer­hurst grounds, and the evening con­clud­ed at one of the resort’s ball­rooms, over­look­ing the scenic wilder­ness and glassy waters of Penin­su­la Lake. con­tin­ue read­ing »

Brittany + Mitch — You are the protein to my salad.

As lay­ered and intri­cate as this sto­ry is, Brit­tany and Mitch’s love lies at the heart of it, pro­vid­ing a con­stant to the nar­ra­tive that makes each ele­ment of their day flow organ­i­cal­ly into the next. Whether it’s the couple’s own per­son­al vows, a rabbi’s address, or a loved one’s speech, they all lend to the sto­ry of Brit­tany and Mitch and the love they share, which is infec­tious by the way it emi­nates from every sin­gle frame of their wed­ding film.

With tru­ly per­son­al vows exchanged moments before the cer­e­mo­ny under the pine trees that line Cam­bi­um Farms’ back field, a mag­i­cal Jewish/Macedonian cer­e­mo­ny accent­ed by the per­fect­ly dif­fused sun­light that made its way through the holes and gaps in between the wood­en pan­els of the barn, tra­di­tion­al dances, an inti­mate first look, and all the moment in between each of these mile­stones, Brit­tany and Mitch’s wed­ding film tugs at our heart strings and gives us all the feels.

Katrina + Brett — With you is exactly where I’m supposed to be.

From very ear­ly on, Kat­ri­na and Brett told us that wed­ding videog­ra­phy was one of the most impor­tant ele­ments of their day and the keep­sake they were look­ing for­ward to the most. That didn’t nec­es­sar­i­ly change our approach, but it did spark much excite­ment going into their cel­e­bra­tion at the scenic Kurtz Orchards in Nia­gara on the Lake. They were excit­ed for us to lend our style and approach to their wed­ding day and we were excit­ed to tell their sto­ry and wan­der through the vine­yards at sun­set with them.

As is the case with all our NHL cou­ples, the hard­est part was get­ting to a meet­ing where we can hash out all our ideas. Because Kat­ri­na and Brett live in Wash­ing­ton dur­ing the hock­ey sea­son, we weren’t able to sit down with them until a cou­ple of weeks before the wed­ding day, but once we did, we were com­plete­ly cap­ti­vat­ed by the warm and inti­mate cel­e­bra­tion they were plan­ning. con­tin­ue read­ing »

Angela + Barry — You are my home.

You won’t find big­ger fans of the odd weath­er we’ve been giv­en in Toron­to this sum­mer than us. Yes, the con­stant threat of thun­der­storms is unwel­come, but the cli­mate on either side of these storms yields the most per­fect of shoot­ing con­di­tions — over­cast skies, vibrant colours, beau­ti­ful clouds, and moody scenes (you may remem­ber us say­ing just this just a few weeks ago). It’s not the typ­i­cal fore­cast a wed­ding cin­e­matog­ra­ph­er usu­al­ly hopes for, but despite calls for rain on almost every sin­gle wed­ding we’ve had this past sea­son, we’ve been con­sis­tent­ly on the per­fect end of each storm. That’s where Angela and Bar­ry come in. con­tin­ue read­ing »

Melanie + Carey — We make such great memories.

With a beautifully-crafted cel­e­bra­tion tai­lored to their clos­est friends and fam­i­ly and spread across a cou­ple of days amongst the sun-kissed vine­yards of Nia­gara on the Lake, Melanie and Carey’s wed­ding is one of the most epic films we have ever put togeth­er. Start­ing with the exquisitely-told sto­ry of how they met at a par­ty in Toron­to, the nar­ra­tive goes on to take a life of its own using their speech­es and vows to tell the sto­ry of their day, their rela­tion­ship thus far, and what it has and will become. It’s a com­plex and inter­wo­ven nar­ra­tive that frames all the dif­fer­ent ele­ments that make this film so spe­cial: the bohemi­an, picnic-style rehearsal din­ner at the Wood­burn Inn, their per­fect­ly infor­mal speech­es, the inti­mate cer­e­mo­ny tucked away on the edge of the Ridge­point Win­ery vine­yards, and the rus­tic open-air din­ner that fol­lowed.
