Shooting weddings at historically significant places is always fun. Being a part of a couple’s special day is always a privilege. We like to think that we do our best to honour that respect and trust which we as the photographers have been given. When that couple also happens to be two dear friends, well, it just makes it that much more special.
We had such fun shooting Lena and Kong’s engagement, what with their awesome idea of renting grounds and taking the engagement theme to new heights. So we were really looking forward to their wedding and they did not disappoint. Their wedding day was just the way they are: fun, friendly, stylish and glamour all rolled into one great package.
Shot at the wonderful Scarborough Golf Course grounds, Dianna’s wedding was a first for Prestige Photos in that Irene, who typically shoots second for me was lead photographer. Her second was our dear friend, and my wedding photographer mentor Paul who himself always captures such awe inspiring pictures.
Prestige-Photos had the wonderful opportunity of shooting another wedding at the beautiful Markham Museum this past summer. On this occasion, rain turning to a drizzle occurred throughout most of the day. However, as you can see, rain need not ruin your day. In fact, the dark skies highlight the beautiful white of the dress and the sheen on the wooden train platform add great drama to the pictures. Even the greens get greener! And take a look at the last image, the bride and groom got umbrellas that match their wedding colour theme!
As photographers, we have to know when to be invisible and when to coreograph the shots, such as when doing the formals. Of course, the more input the couple has into what they want out of those shots the better. Annemaria and David were wonderful for expressing the vision they had. Of course, we had a few ideas of our own. However, when we said “hey, why don’t you guys climb that tree” we were of course joking. You know what? They, and their large bridal party, actually climbed the tree. I don’t think I’ve ever been so nervous as a photographer. All I could think was, “please don’t let the groom fall and get hurt on his wedding day.” Everything of course turned out fine. Here are some images of the lovely couple.
Markham Museum in old Markham is a wonderful place. The decor is fantastic and the support staff are wonderful and very helpful to all.
This past summer Prestige-Photos had the opportunity to shoot two weddings at this wonderful location.
Here are a few images from the first shoot. More to come!
Being a wedding photographer is fantastic! The privilege to be a part of a two people’s special day, alongside their family and friends and help create and capture the memories that will they will cherish is a great honour. And it’s even better in this great multicultural society we live in. Earlier this year, Prestige-Photos had the opportunity to capture an Indian-Chinese wedding. Talk about colours! Here’s a few of their engagement pictures followed by a few more from their wonderful wedding.
