Berkeley Church is an amazing Toronto downtown venue for a romantic and intimate wedding. Its historical charm and stunning architectural features allow to create many stunning photographs, which are a mix of architecture, funky light, and different angles.
Vickie and Nicholas’ wedding happened on a cold November day. What I love the most about Berkeley Church is that even if the weather didn’t cooperate, we would still be able to capture plenty of beautiful images.
Vickie and Nicholas wanted their wedding to be intimate, and they chose Berkeley Church because of the versatility of the space.
I always listen to my couples. I want to know the vision for their wedding day, what moments are important, and how they want their guests to remember it. Having an emotional connection with couples is the key to capturing emotional, candid, light-hearted images.
Some time ago, I created a blog post where I share more about emotional connection and why it is so important:
Why is it important to have an emotional connection with couples?
I love to mix different photography styles: documentary, candid, and artistic, with a sprinkle of traditional images. I look for emotions and gestures. Of course, I always ensure that I use all the advantages of the venue where I shoot: the light, texture, and surroundings.
Emotional storytelling is what I would call Everglow Photography approach to wedding photography.
Photography is all about observing what’s happening around us. Small gestures, smiles, moments that will be gone in a second. In my opinion, photography requires a lot of emotional sensitivity. Wedding photography is an art that captures powerful feelings on one of the most important days of people’s lives. Being emotionally sensitive allows us to see more than other people can see. I always capture all the key moments, but I never forget the serendipity that makes photography a joyride.
