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!
Love shooting in the depth of a lush green forest. As a photographer we always aim to photograph in the shade as the images become more vibrant and the clients are less aggravated with bright light causing shadows underneath their eyes. Here is a perfect example of what can be done on a bright sunny hot day as the bride and groom are positioned in the midst of a dark romantic forest. As the photo and video team create magical images, the clients are always staying cool…
Love this rustic location… When clients ask us for a unique and rustic look, we always recommend Pioneer village. Even on a hot sunny day, there are many cool shaded spots to photograph in. Ideally every image is perfected in the shade instead of the direct light. These are some of the tricks that we as professional photographers live by. Fact: did you hear that Peter and Paul’s is now the head caterer at Pioneer village? Congratulations goes out to Christina + Matteo on this beautiful wedding photo.
Are you looking for Fall colour ideas… Here is a fun photo of a shoot we did just a while ago. The trick in achieving this image is to shoot as wide open as possible. For instance , this image was captured and shot with an 85mm 1.4 Nikon Lens. This helps create the fall off in the background creating the distance and selective focus on the leaf. Contact us any time to set up your FREE wedding or engagement consultation.
Many clients ask this question… “When is the best time to take wedding or engagement photos?” As a professional photo studio we always prefer to take photos in the fall. Here are some reasons why: The sky is filled with clouds which helps to diffuse the light, therefore the light is consistent and even throughout. When capturing photographs, this helps avoid shadows under the eyes and prevents squinting from occurring. Check out this blog post from a fall wedding just this past weekend. Congratulations to Veronica + Erick!
Are you a bride getting married in the fall season or would you like to have your engagement photos in a lush forest of magical colours?

Located just north of Toronto, Richmond green is definitely worth the drive. Call the city today to reserve your permit. Congratulations to Adrianna + Kyle on their wedding day!!!
We love shooting at The Doctors House in Kleinburg especially this time of year. The leaves are slowly falling from the trees and the sun is a bit warmer creating a beautiful light to photograph in. Here is a sneak peak from Laura + Clinton’s wedding just this past weekend. Congratulations guys!!!
