If you are looking for Luxury and sophistication in the heart of Toronto, check out the newly redesigned St. Regis hotel at the intersection of Bay + Adelaide. The sky scraper was originally the Trump hotel and then years later renamed to The Adelaide hotel and is now fully functioning as the St. Regis Hotel. If you are a big fan of the tv show Suits, you will spot the familiar lobby of the main building lobby in Suits located just across the street from the St. Regis hotel.

Have you ever wondered what happens on a wedding when it begins to rain? Well, check out this image! With 30 years of experience Quarum can literally pull rabbits out of a hat when it comes to thinking on the spot. As professional photographers we know every location in the city and even though it may be raining, we not only have great ideas but we have a huge list of locations to share with you.
As we mentioned in our previous blog, the season of fall is breathtaking just as we see in these photos below. The lighting is warm and the sun cruises a lot lower in the sky this time of year creating a sparkle of magic behind every image. If you take a look closely, you will see the sun peeking in just above the grooms head on the above image. As for the image below, the sun is once again highlighting the brides veil. Lighting like this is only available for the next few more weeks. This past weekend we had an explosion of weddings as every year at the end of October marks yet another successful Year! Stay tuned for more posts from Luxury weddings…
This time of year is filled with wonderful lighting, beautiful sunsets but most of all, vibrant and colorful leaves. Yes, we are talking about the season fall! We as wedding photographers are very fortunate to live in the city of Toronto and to be able to photograph this extraordinary seasons. As professional wedding photographers there are ups and downs that can occur in every season. Take for instance the summer. the weather is so hot and humid that your subject is literally melting in front of your lens. The groomsmen are overheating and the bridesmaids hair has frizzed up into a giant ball, and not to mention the makeup!!! Winter on the other hand, can also have its challenges. Your subjects can only be out in the cold for a short time before extremities begin to freeze and noses begin to turn bright red. Have fun retouching 1500 images!! Then we have spring… Blah,,,, ya, you may have Cherie blossoms for a week and a few flowers popping out of the ground, but you clients are constantly sneezing due to the pollen in the air…. Fall, on the other hand, is the perfect time of year to capture a wedding! You and your spouse will feel comfortable in no matter what you wear, yes, there will be some days that rain will come or the wind will strike, but overall this season is KING!
The large columns and the brilliant architecture is a key setting when shooting photos downtown Toronto at Osgood hall. With so many hidden jems within this one location, not only is the client wowed by the surroundings, but as a professional photographer we are always blown away at how creative we can get at this place. Clothing and personality also make a huge difference. The proper set of clothes make or break a photo shoot. If your wondering on what type of clothing to wear for your next engagement shoot, here are some tips to consider. 1) Wear something that your super comfortable in. Comfort is key so that when you are placed in a difficult pose at least you wont be concentrating on the difficulty and pain of that pair of pants ridding up your… you know what. With a professional shoot the photographer will ask you to sit, dip, lift, piggy back and so much more. Consider this when choosing your outfit. Also, Don’t be afraid to spend the money on cool clothes especially the ones you will love forever. 2) Personality is key… Make sure your well rested and hydrated from the night before so that you can arrive at the location a bit earlier to feel the vibe and calm your nerves and just have some time to walk around and unwind before the shoot. We as photographers find that most couples rush to a shoot causing them to stress for the first little while. Don’t do it! We want you to have a blast!! Personality also means, have fun during the shoot. Pretend the camera is not there, fall in love with yourselves and pretend its your first date and how excited you both were when you first met. This will help you relax and keep the photographer excited about whats happening. Check out this fun photo…
Have you ever been up north to a barn to feed or even spend the afternoon riding horses and thought to yourself… wow this would be a great place to have a wedding? Well, unfortunately most barns don’t allow this sort of thing. But not in this case! Welcome to Nikki’s barn, this place has everything you have dreamt of and more. We just photographed a full ceremony and captured an entire park shoot at this location a few weeks ago and the grounds are absolutely stunning. Check out some of the images we managed to post here on our blog from this young couples wedding day. As a Toronto wedding photo and video studio, we love venturing out into the country and coming back with some eye opening images. Please contact the studio to see more photos from this wedding and others similar to it. Congratulations to Cheyenne + Andrew on tying the knot!!!
Love the early morning of the Distillery Historic District before all the crowds start to rush in and all the shops slowly begin to open. The lighting is just right as the sun slowly starts to rise. Check out this fun location which kinda reminds me of china town downtown Toronto. Fall colours are around the corner, but in the meantime we are still entertaining other locations. Book your engagement shoot today and ask us about the fun locations we have in mind for your next shoot.
Check out this beautiful banquet hall we had the pleasure of attending this past weekend. Hazelton Manor is a gorgeous venue to host your next wedding.
