Simone • Daniel [A New Brunswick BBQ!]

I recently had the pleasure to fly out to New Brunswick for love story shoot of Simone and Daniel – Which I was commissioned out by PhotoTerra Studios to shoot. As I was invited to the couples Pre-Wedding BBQ at their Ocean Front Cottage, I just couldn’t help but bring the camera and join in on the fun. I put together a short piece to tease the couple of what their wedding video would look like; the response I received was simply Amazing!!!

I can’t wait to sit down and work on their main wedding feature as their day was full of great events, breathe taking scenery and a true Acadian Style. Hope you enjoy the short and stay tuned for the wedding highlights that’s coming soon…

Simone - October 1, 2009

Mike, you blew us away with this video! I’m so excited that you shot our BBQ and wedding and can’t say enough about your amazing work! Dan and I were thrilled to have you caption our wedding events and can’t wait to see the rest! Your very talented!

Samantha - September 23, 2009

My husband says this looks like a professional commercial – you should sell this to the catering company? Really nice job! And if the bride is reading this: Love the yellow dress! You are so beautiful.

Mike - September 21, 2009

Oh, and yes – we shoot in Full 1080p, High Def! (Online its compressed to 720p – which is still pretty amazing for Streamed Video); but we do provide a full 1080p Blue Ray Option to our couples!

Mike - September 21, 2009

Hey Mark, thanks for the comments. Simone and Daniel live/work in Toronto but also frequent New Brunswick where they chose to tie the knot. I was commissioned by PhotoTerra as a freelancer to cover their wedding. I’m sure there are event coverage companies in New Brunswick, but I feel honoured that they chose to fly me out based on my style and previous work. I must admit – this experience has really spoiled me and I can’t wait for my next destination event!

Mark - September 21, 2009

New Brunswick? Do they not have video companies in New Brunswick? lol… either you are getting to be really good, or I need to get in the business! WICKED work. Keep shocking me… cause these look like little films! Is it High Def?

Chris • Evangeline

When putting a full feature together, it takes a couple of edits before we’re happy with the end product… with this video, I’m struggling with choosing clips from the large amount of amazing shots we took covering the preparations of Chris and Evangeline. There was so much emotion, so many wonderful stories and an overwhelming amount of magic – Wait till you see the church! Here are a few minutes from their full feature (I don’t want to spoil their first viewing at the studio’s theatre for the reveal) – But I’m sure it’ll be re-worked a few times more… so here’s take 1!

Enjoy!

Samantha - September 24, 2009

this couple is sooo cute!

Najima - September 9, 2009

Awe!

Carlos - September 8, 2009

This is take 1!!! You make my wedding video look worse and worse each time I see your work. You guys are capturing all the happenings throughout the day, and make it look like a MOVIE. Wicked work Mike!

Jay • Terena

As we drove home from this event’s coverage – he couldn’t stop talking about how much fun we had as a result of the couple’s easy going attitude, their fun and crazy wedding party, and a hall full of happy Europeans! We had the opportunity to shoot a pre-ceremony bridal shoot which turned out great indoors because of the morning rain. We encountered many pleasant experiences throughout the day and Jay and Terena’s celebration has certainly become a highlight of the season.

Marsha K Heart - August 11, 2009

These photos are beautiful. I want to get married.

Nino - August 7, 2009

The clarity, colour and creativity are nothing short of breath-taking. My co-worker thought I was browsing a site straight out of a hollywood magazine. This is simply fantastic. Great work RB and MR.

Rob - August 5, 2009

Hi Najima, the first location of the photoshoot was at The Oakville Municipal Greenhouse and Conservatory and located at 1100 Cornwall Road, Oakville, Ontario

Najima - August 5, 2009

Where was this shoot? Is this a GreenHouse? I love the little white bridge and the greens in the background! Beautiful location, and beautiful bride!

Chantelle - August 5, 2009

Such a beautiful bride! Her pictures are stunning. BTW, I really love the graffiti!

Marco - August 5, 2009

Jay and Terena were an absolute pleasure to film. They both share an outgoing and spontaneous personality. I had a blast at this shoot and their wedding was amazing. What a beautiful couple.

Darren • Heather

Fun in the SUN!

Heading out to Toronto’s Centre Island for a shoot with Heather and Darren (a.k.a. HeeHee and Dash), we confirmed the cliché to be true: Time flies when you’re having fun! With the intent of spending only a couple of hours breaking the ice and getting a few great shots; we finally called it day after shooting for over 5 hours and exploring the island’s wondrous scenes. How can you possibly stop short with all the amazing greenery, the beach and Toronto’s stunning skyline. In compliment to the location – here is a couple that oozes with passion! We meet a lot of couples throughout our bookings and event coverage; but Heather and Darren definitely have chemistry worth noting!

Hope the vid displays the enjoyment we experienced shooting and editing this one together!

Frank - August 12, 2009

What type of camera’s do you guys use. The quality is really good

Marco - August 10, 2009

What a great day we all had together filming this crazy couple. Heather and Dash are definately a very friendly and outgoing pair; which is always a bonus when filming. Mike you did an absolute amazing job with this video and Rob great pictures. The mix of colour and action in this video really created a fantastic production.

heather and dash - August 2, 2009

Dash and I wanted to let you know how much we appreciate all of the work that you have done for us. Your photos and video have left us speechless, we are so happy that you are working with us and cannot wait for the upcoming wedding. You are so fun to be around and you really made us feel comfortable considering we have never had photos taken of us before. Such great work and so professional. Thank you for everything, we couldn’t be happier!!

Rob - July 31, 2009

Thanks for all the great comments! Heather and Dash were really fun to work with!

Giap • Winnie

Giap (Zap) and Winnie’s celebration proved to be a wondrous experience as it was our First Traditional Vietnamese Wedding! We had to keep cleaning the humidity off the lenses at the Allen Gardens, Toronto – but the backgrounds and colours were well worth the sweat. We were also blessed with the weather holding out – so we explored the grounds of University of Toronto and ended up with some spectacular shots! We had an amazing time covering this wedding and were very happy to be part of this amazing couple’s day.

Giap and Winnie’s reception sure wasn’t short of any GLAM! Held at the Le Jardin Banquet Hall in Vaughan; It was a night filled with amazing décor, beautiful arrangements, entertaining performances and spectacular ambiance.

Marco - August 10, 2009

Great quality photos Rob. You are truly talented.

Najima - July 29, 2009

Great Photos! I just signed up to watch your site with RSS. This is beautiful work. My sister just got married and her photos are nothing to compare with. You have WOW factor!

Mark - July 29, 2009

Mike, you got married? lol… sick rig, and hot bride. This pics look great. What video cameras do you guys use, the quality is pretty awesome!

Jason - July 29, 2009

1. An Overflowing Champaign bottle, 2. bride’s mouth wide open, 3. Groom’s men cheering you on like you’re a rock star!

And a photographer that caught this = PRICELESS! This should be a mastercard Ad. I didn’t expect this coming to your site; Mike you and your peeps are doing some cool work. I LOVE THAT PIC, I want a copy!

Joyce - July 29, 2009

This wedding is absolutely beautiful. I’m suprised that your brides aren’t ranting and raving all over this blog about your work. From the videos to the Photo coverage. You guys have talent! Really Nice stuff!

Carmela • Mike

We had a great time capturing this ‘chemistry filled’ couple that truly shined through our lenses. We walked around Humber Bay park – which is now a local spot to our new studio space – not only getting to know Mike and Carmela a little better, but the shoot exposed us to our new neighbourhood as we checked out potential photo locations. We found some great textures and backgrounds, but also found some deterrents…. like in the tall grass – where Carmela ended up with Poison Ivy on her legs – But in the name of getting the perfect shot, it was all worth it!?!?!?!?!

A huge thanks goes out to the both of them for being such amazing sports and for allowing us to capture their sparkle in our own backyard!
