Fall colours – Toronto Luxury weddings- Quarum photo + video

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!

Osgood hall Toronto – tips from the pros on what to wear for your engagement shoot

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…

Luxury weddings toronto – Quarum photo + video

Playing with light and finding new locations within the heart of the city of Toronto is what Quarum does best!  Take this awesome shot for instance… While walking through the lobby of a very cool boutique downtown hotel, “The Anndore House”, we notice this very trendy and modern door that closes into a mesh wall. Asking the bride to come and stand just underneath the pot light, creates the mood as the background tells the story. This is how we create, this is how we communicate. Congratulations to Van + Arif on their Luxury Toronto wedding.

Toronto weddings – Pioneer village – quarum photo + video

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.

Love being a part of the behind the scenes with our couples and catching little surprises like this one.
