Weddingbells is the ultimate Canadian resource for all aspects of wedding planning.
You know what the number one complaint people have about their weddings?
No, it’s not the people they chose to spend the rest of their lives with – it’s the people they chose to photograph their wedding. So when the time comes for your ‘big day’, it’s best to make sure you’re not messing around.
That means no disposable cameras on the table ’cause you think it’s going to be ‘cute’ to see the pictures people take when they’re half in the bag. That means no amateur photographers you found on Craigslist. If you want your wedding to be captured in all its glory, you need to find the pros who know how to do it properly.
Luckily, Weddingbells.ca has just given you an inside look at the 30 most inspiring Canadian wedding photographers for the 2016 season. So when it comes time to say ‘I do’, having one of these shooters capturing every moment will be the (second) best decision of your life.
You’ll find their top 5 below and the next 25 here.
Jennifer Moher Photography
Based out of: Peterborough, Ontario
Why Weddingbells loves her: Just spend a few moments scrolling through Jennifer Moher’s Instagram acount and you’ll understand what sets her wedding photography apart. Mother combines a high key aesthetic with a masterful use of negative space to create gorgeous minimalist images that modern brides adore.
Based out of: Halifax, Nova Scotia
Why Weddingbells loves them: “Few studios can consistently deliver the sorts of dramatic, artistic shots we’ve grown accustom to seeing from this Auber-talented Halifax-based collective. With incredible depth of shadows and an eye for striking backdrops, you’d be hard-pressed to find another set of shooters who can emulate this unique, photojournalistic style.”
The Toths (formerly My Canvas Media)
Based out of: Calgary, Alberta
Why Weddingbells loves them: “The Toths are a husband and wife team who love natural light and the great outdoors–these qualities are absolutely reflected in their breathtaking snaps. The Toths’ photographs have an ethereal glow to them and the pair are masters at capturing all the pretty little details as well as the sweet candid moments of a wedding day. We also love that they play with scale in many of their photos to give a greater sense of place and moment.”
Shannon May Photography
Based out of: St. Andrews By-The-Sea, New Brunswick
Why Weddingbells loves her: “A self-proclaimed hopeless romantic, Shannon-May Pringle puts her heart into her work and it shows. Pringles is an absolute genius with lighting, helping couples to look their best even into the wee hours of a celebration. This New Brunswick-based pro is also an expert when it comes to creating jaw-dropping works of art in less than favourable conditions — just look at this moment she captured in the pouring rain.”
Corina V. Photography
Based out of: Toronto, Ontario
Why Weddingbells loves her: “Timeless and authentic wedding and engagement photos are what owner Corina Van Sluytman always strives to achieve, and we love her for it. Specializing in fine art photography, Corina’s use of natural light is what makes her images so soft and dreamy–perfect for the bride and groom seeking romantic wedding pictures.”
