Shangri-La Hotel wedding

When you are choosing where to do each part of your wedding day, it’s great if you have everything you need close to one another.  Anything that saves time during the day helps.  The Shangri-La Hotel is easy walking distance to Osgoode Hall, which so far is still free to shoot at and you don’t need a shooting permit which is awesome!  At the hall you have options for shots that feel like your at a well kept park, and the Hall itself is quite beautiful giving a classic feeling to your bridal photos.

The main room for having your wedding ceremony has tall ceilings with floor to ceiling windows, so the room is really bright and cheerful as long as the weather is good.  This is also fantastic for your photographer.  Natural daylight is great for ceremony coverage.  When you have 30 foot tall windows the light is almost like an outdoor ceremony except better.

Here’s a great wedding idea.  Instead of having a sign in book, have a puzzle made from one of your engagement shoot pictures, then have your guests write on the back of each piece.

You can have the puzzle laminated to hang or store and all of your guests comments are on the back.

Ancaster Mill Wedding

Here’s a beautiful wedding at the Ancaster Mill restaurant.  This was shot in November and it was pretty cold for that time of the year.  The whole wedding party braved the cold to make sure the couple was going to get great shots.

No matter how good a photographer is, they can’t be in two places at once.  Usually if you have two photographers, there’s the one you choose because you loved their work, then there’s the “other” photographer.  With Josh Cornell and Corey Wright you have two extremely experienced photographers who together can deliver a final product that cannot be matched by any wedding photographer team in North America.

Wedding Photos at University of Toronto

U of T is a great location to shoot your couples and bridal party photos.  What a classic feeling.  In Toronto, only UofT and Casa Loma can give you images like these from your wedding day.

Brantford Golf and Country Club Wedding

Even if it’s raining fairly hard, your photographer can make your photos look like it’s not raining and brighter than it looks to the eye.  The wedding below at the Brantford Country club is a good example.  During most of these photos, it was raining pretty hard.  If your a trooper and don’t mind getting a little wet, your shots will turn out great!

Casa Loma Wedding

There’s nothing more romantic than being married in a Castle.  Here is a great wedding with a classic feel at Casa Loma, Toronto.  Over a hundred years old, there is nothing else like it in Toronto.

This venue is a photographers dream.  Every room is gorgeous.  Literally there are beautiful photographs possible on almost every square foot of the property.

Casa Loma is a fashion and wedding photographers dream.

Having Fun While Your Taking Your Wedding Photos

Eugenia and Tommy wanted their photos to be fun in a place they have a history, so they choose Kensington Market, Toronto.  Choosing locations you are familiar with can make you feel more comfortable while you are being photographed.  They were open to our suggestions and we love using your ideas as well.

You can plan which location to use, even particular shots, but don’t be afraid of being spontaneous.  The more things you are open to trying, the better your moments will be.

I am using fun images first from Kensington to show how a gritty urban environment can be used in a whimsical way.  Afterwards, their reception was at Malaparte, Tiff Bell Lightbox.  What a contrast the clean, modern Malaparte is to the market, but it all works together because of Eugenia and Tommy’s personalities.

    The couple chose the Modern and refined looking Malaparte event space in, TIFF Bell LIghtbox for their wedding ceremony and reception.  It has great indoor and outdoor areas, a fantastic view of downtown Toronto and the CN Tower.  Most of the work we did at TIFF that day was more romantic, so I am showing more images about the venue itself and details because the images above were about having fun:)

Alina and Ian

So you want to get married surrounded by vineyards with the smell of fine wine in the air?  The go to response to this request in North America is to have your wedding in Napa Valley, California, or is it?  Yes Canada has it’s own wine growing areas as well that are not only beautiful but have produced award winning wine recognized around the world.  I have photographed weddings in several different wine growing areas of North America.  I can say without a doubt that Niagara on the Lake is just as beautiful, and for Canadians, much more accessible.  In fact the town itself is a picturesque place filled with with photographic opportunities for wedding photographer Josh Cornell to take advantage of.

The happy couple, Alina and Ian chose to have their wedding at The Pillar and Post Inn.  A historical hotel near the heart of Niagara on the Lake.  Everything you need for your perfect day is within a short walking distance from the hotel.  Vineyards, historical buildings, victorian houses, the neighbourhood itself is filled with big beautiful trees and you are a few minutes walk from Lake Ontario’s shore making for hundreds of perfect opportunities for amazing moments to be captured.

Petra and Dwayne

 

Josh Cornell had a great afternoon photographing Petra and Dwayne MacDougall’s big day.  They decided to have their wedding and reception at the Knollwood Golf Club located in Ancaster, Ontario.  The area has an “out in the country vibe” and feels like you are further away from Toronto than you are.  This makes it a convenient location for your guests to get to and from Toronto and the surrounding area.

If your idea of the perfect wedding is filled with hand made ornaments with a homemade feel, this rustic wedding has lots of great simple heartfelt ideas.  Some couples even chose to have their bridal party help them make the decorations for their weddings!  Just how involved you are with every detail of your wedding depends on how much time you have and how creative you are.  If making your decorations yourself is not for you don’t worry, there are lots of vendors making decorations for your wedding with that hand made touch your hoping for.

When your getting ready in the morning you will most often chose a location close to your wedding ceremony or reception location.  In this case, Petra and Dwayne decided they wanted their hotel to have the same feeling as their wedding, warm and cozy with a country feel.  They choose to stay and get ready for their wedding the morning of their wedding at the Serenity Bed and Breakfast located west of Ancaster, Ontario.  This B&B feels like its name name suggests, creating a perfect start for a country wedding.
