La Maquette is an intimate and beautiful Toronto downtown wedding venue on King Street East which is part of Berkeley Events. It was my first time shooting there, and I absolutely fell in love with the place. Minimalistic yet warm décor allows for the creation of a very intimate vibe. Greenhouse-like windows let in a lot of natural light, which always helps create great images.
I love to shoot downtown just as much as I love to shoot in nature. The two are opposites, so I see them as opportunities to create completely different images.
Downtown weddings, from my experience, have a slightly faster pace and allow for incorporating the city as a background. If you have your wedding downtown, you need to be prepared to have other people and the energy of the city in the background.
Some time ago, I created a blog post about how to approach downtown sessions and get ready for them: “What To Expect From Your Engagement/ Wedding Session in the City?”
Every couple, setting, and wedding day are different—I always want to make sure that I hear my clients and understand their needs. Doing so lets me feel the moment’s mood and create unforgettable memories for you and your loved ones.
My team and I are not only photographers—we want to make sure we help you capture the best images possible.
I think Amy-Louise and Augusto’s words say it all:
“Can I give 10 stars? I researched a lot of photographers, and my husband liked Monika’s style, so we booked a zoom call, and from that initial meeting, we knew we wanted to work with Monika. We booked an engagement shoot (highly recommend this!) before the wedding, and Monika made us both feel so comfortable. In the run-up to the wedding, she offered advice on the day of timeline, when makeup should start and be completed by, places for our first look, family pictures, a rain plan etc. She helped us way more than I expected a photographer to! As I was running late on the day of the wedding, Monika was patient, calming and reassuring! And the pictures are stunning, with lots of gorgeous candids of our guests. We have so many incredible memories captured beautifully, thanks to Monika! She is such an incredibly talented photographer, and I couldn’t recommend her more.”
