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
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.
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
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
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.
