Shealyn + Michael — Between the shadow and the soul.

The first time we met Shea, we were run­ning around the AGO in Toron­to putting togeth­er a same-day edit for Kali and Edward. She had stopped by to help with the decor and we briefly talked about all the amaz­ing­ness she had in store for Blake and Corey’s day the fol­low­ing year. It would prob­a­bly make sense to add that Shea is a crazy tal­ent­ed wed­ding plan­ner and design­er with an eye for the rus­tic and roman­tic.

Being big fans of her work, and hit­ting it off on a few dif­fer­ent indus­try nights and galas since then, we were absolute­ly thrilled when she reached out to us to be their wed­ding cin­e­matog­ra­phers. con­tin­ue read­ing »

Sarah + Robert — You’ve ignited my soul.

Sarah and Robert shared an incred­i­ble week­end of wed­ding cel­e­bra­tions at the JW Mar­riott in Muskoka and, as much as we could talk about the beau­ti­ful land­scapes car­pet­ed with lush forests and rock for­ma­tions, or the glass-like water and how it reflect­ed the sub­dued dusk colours before tran­si­tion­ing into a deep black, or how the cou­ple, along with their friends and fam­i­lies, made each breath­tak­ing scene a lit­tle more vibrant with their glow­ing hap­pi­ness, our words wouldn’t even come close to doing this beau­ti­ful film jus­tice. So we’re going to save you from any more ridicu­lous­ly long run-on sen­tences and keep it short.

Our cer­e­mony will be held on an old church that sits on top of a hill over­look­ing Lake Rosseau.”

We instant­ly knew, from our very first meet­ing with Sarah and Robert, that their day would make for a stun­ning film. Their love and excite­ment was so evi­dent, their laugh­ter infec­tious, and their plans so cin­e­mat­ic. Let’s just say that they had us at “our cer­e­mony will be held on an old church that sits on top of a hill over­look­ing Lake Rosseau”, and when they told us a few weeks before the wed­ding that they’d be hop­ping on a boat direct­ly after the cer­e­mony for a scenic ride to their recep­tion, we were com­plete­ly over the moon.

This is a film of beau­ti­ful peo­ple, beau­ti­ful moments and beau­ti­ful land­scapes, each play­ing off each oth­er to ele­vate the whole. And also, slow-mo. 🐢✨

Betsy + Henry — 长命无绝衰.

We always push our­selves to look at things dif­fer­ent­ly, try new tech­niques, and approach every project we take on with a dif­fer­ent per­spec­tive. It’s this phi­los­o­phy that allows each wed­ding film we cre­ate to have a dis­tinc­tive look and feel — a vibe and aes­thet­ic reflec­tive of the cou­ple and the voice they lend their film. And while it’s easy for wed­ding video­g­ra­phers to take on a style-over-content approach, we feel that our doc­trine push­es us to think of our sto­ries and char­ac­ters and how our style strength­ens the­se ele­ments.

Bet­sy and Henry’s film is the cul­mi­na­tion of this ide­ol­o­gy.

There were a few aspects of Bet­sy and Henry’s day that were fun­da­men­tal to their sto­ry: their very emo­tion­al vows, the tra­di­tion­al Chi­ne­se wed­ding rit­u­als, Man­dar­in cul­ture, the com­ing togeth­er of their fam­i­lies, and Toronto’s Queen St. West, the street where Hen­ry grew up, where the cou­ple now lives, and where their wed­ding took place.

Rouzhin + Naram — My everything partner.

To say that Rouzhin and Naram’s wed­ding had it all is an under­state­ment. It had more than we could have ever thought “all” to encom­pass. A beau­ti­ful­ly dec­o­rat­ed sofreh cer­e­mony, bal­leri­nas, an a capel­la choir, gela­to trucks and tra­di­tion­al Turk­ish cof­fee sta­tions, a bub­ble send-off, a mul­ti­tude of per­for­mances, a chore­o­graphed first dance, and an extrav­a­gant Marie Antoinette-themed recep­tion spread across Toronto’s Four Sea­sons, St. Paul’s Basil­i­ca, and the AGO.

Every aspect of their day – big or small — had a per­sonal touch and sought to provide their close friends and fam­ily with the most amaz­ing expe­ri­ence

Madia + Adam — We have fun together.

You’ll often hear us talk about loca­tion and how inte­gral it is to sto­ry, but may­be even more impor­tant is the time of day you shoot at that loca­tion. Light can change dras­ti­cal­ly through­out the day and film­ing at just the right time can ren­der a bland loca­tion beau­ti­ful, or make a great loca­tion even greater. Not to say we can take full cred­it for just how stun­ning the cin­e­matog­ra­phy in Madia and Adam’s wed­ding film is. When they told us they want­ed to shoot a seg­ment at their cot­tage, we sim­ply sug­gest­ed that they build a bon­fire at dusk.

Light can change dras­ti­cal­ly through­out the day and film­ing at just the right time can ren­der a bland loca­tion beau­ti­ful, or make a great loca­tion even greater.

What we didn’t know then is that we would cap­ture the most strik­ing spec­ta­cle as the sun dis­ap­peared behind the hori­zon, colours blend­ing into each oth­er and chang­ing as the sun’s rays shone through and part­ed clouds, flocks of seag­ulls fly­ing across the water in a scene of Nation­al Geographic-esque pro­por­tions. It was utter­ly mag­i­cal. con­tin­ue read­ing »
