Veronica + Derek — What a grand thing it is to love.

Veron­i­ca and Derek’s barn wed­ding was a beau­ti­ful­ly rus­tic cel­e­bra­tion that ful­ly took advan­tage of the Cam­bi­um Farms’ pic­turesque grounds. Veron­i­ca and the girls spent the morn­ing dec­o­rat­ing the car­riage house and get­ting ready in the farm­house before meet­ing Derek in the after­noon for their peace­ful cer­e­mo­ny along the trees that line Cambium’s back field. Togeth­er as hus­band and wife, Veron­i­ca and Derek par­tied the night away with their friends and fam­i­ly under the unex­posed beams and dan­gling lights of the centuries-old barn. con­tin­ue read­ing »

Four Seasons Toronto Wedding Videographer

In our Loca­tion Tag series, we high­light the spe­cial places that make doing what we do eas­i­er. These inspired spaces pro­vide a beau­ti­ful set­ting and an unmatched atmos­phere for the events in our films to unfold, allow­ing our cou­ples to focus on their cel­e­bra­tion and us on our craft. As wed­ding cin­e­matog­ra­phers who care deeply about sto­ry this is of the utmost impor­tance.

Sit­ting in the heart of Toronto’s Yorkville Dis­trict, The Four Sea­sons Hotel is one of our favourite spots to shoot in the city. The clean and ele­gant rooms pro­vide a mod­ern yet cozy place for brides and grooms to get ready in the morn­ing, while the stun­ning recep­tion space fea­tures floor to ceil­ing win­dows (nat­ur­al light is a wed­ding videographer’s best friend) and a beau­ti­ful con­tem­po­rary design. We’ve filmed at the Four Sea­sons many times, and yet each time we shoot, we find a new way to frame our cou­ples and dif­fer­ent ways to shape the light. That’s the beau­ty of clean spaces, they’re present but they let the sub­ject shine. That trans­lates into a gor­geous set­ting for our cou­ples’ sto­ries. con­tin­ue read­ing »

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.
