Choosing Ten·2·Ten Photography as your Toronto wedding photographer means that you’re not only getting a super enthusiastic photographer who is also talented but that you’re also receiving a photographer who believes in being fully prepared for anything that may happen and who you’ve known since the moment you met us at the consult. Our photographers are as dedicated to your day being amazing as you are. Our photographers are never ‘assigned’ to you – you are allowed to choose which photographer you feel best meets your needs. All of our photographers are fully insured for general liability and have professional level backup gear. Although we have fun at our job, we take weddings very seriously and always come prepared!
Packages starting at $2,299 for 3/4 day and $2,799 for full day
Our packages are very competitively priced considering the amount of experience our team brings to each and every wedding. Our packages give couples options for commissioning a digital-only package or a package that contains beautiful albums. We believe in choice.
- Flexible packages
Our packages are “event-based”. This means that we will not limit you to 8, 10 or even 12 hours of coverage. Rather, we start our coverage when a certain event starts and we end our coverage when a certain event ends; even if the day runs late, we’ll still be there and there and you won’t have to pay overtime fees. When you’re busy enjoying your wedding day, the last thing you want to worry about is what time your photographer is leaving. The events that these packages are based on are that of a traditional Western wedding; we do have custom packages that are available if your wedding falls outside of the events of a traditional western wedding day.
- Options for 1 or 2 photographers
We photograph a variety of weddings; large banquet hall weddings and smaller more intimate ones. This is why our packages contain, by default, 1 photographer with the option of adding a second. Many smaller weddings or medium-sized weddings where a videographer is also present may not require a second shooter. (Yes, it is possible for a second shooter to do more harm than good under certain circumstances) We believe in choice and give you the option to choose how many shooters you want present.
- High resolution images
All of your images will be delivered in high resolution and edited beautifully. With that, you will receive a personal print release which allows you to print your images as many times as you’d like anywhere you’d like.
- Free engagement session
There are so many benefits of taking engagement photos. This is why we include a free (yes, it’s genuinely FREE) 1-hour engagement photo session with all of our wedding photography packages. Learn more about why engagement photos can be beneficial in our blog.
Please note, one of the dangers of posting your photography prices online is that there can be virtual copies of previous price lists floating around on the web. If you have any questions about our current prices, please make an appointment to visit us where we can provide you with a hard copy of the current pricing, a hot cup of coffee and some delightful conversation.

Toronto Wedding Photography Prices: FAQs
When should we book you?
We accept a limited number of commissions each month, with the summer months typically booking up first. We typically secure our bookings about 12 to 15 months in advance but are always happy to if your date is earlier than that! (Who knows, you may luck out and have your date available!)
Do your prices include tax?
No, our prices do not include tax the same way that when you look at a pricetag at a store, the tax will be added at the register. All prices are subject to HST as per Ontario Law.
Can you recommend locations in Toronto for photography?
Absolutely! We are experts when it comes to knowing all the beautiful nooks and crannies of the city. Most of the truly spectacular places do require a permit, though, so make sure you factor in a teensy-weensy portion of your overall wedding budget for permits if you’re opting for one of these awesome locations.
Why do I have to pay extra for a second photographer?
Although the industry standard is for photographers to contract new photographers as second shooters (often times ones they have never even met before), we choose to work with established, professional photographers when partnering up on a wedding day. We’ve worked side-by-side for years and can anticipate each others every move. We believe the quality of our product, whether it’s coming from the primary shooter or the second shooter, should be consistent and meet your every expectation. Learn a little more about second shooters here.
Can I purchase the RAW images?
Raw images are not usable images – at least to a client. Raw images need to be processed in order to create a final image. Part of our job is to process the images, perfect them and create a finished product. Asking your photographer for the RAW files is like asking your cake vendor for an extra bag of flour, on the side. It’s only a partial ingredient in the overall product and means nothing on it’s own. Clients often ask for RAW photos because they think they are a higher quality image than JPEGs; truth is, many professional printing companies require you to submit your images via JPEG. There’s nothing wrong with high res JPEGs; they are awesome quality images and will produce beautiful prints.
How many images will I get?
On average, you can estimate around 50-60 images per hour of shooting (so around 800 ish for a full day wedding with 2 photographers); sometimes more sometimes less. I will never give a guarantee of a certain number of images because it varies wildly from wedding to wedding. Image count depends on how much time we’re actually shooting (and not traveling), the amount of detail to be photographed, the amount of time we have to photos, the amount of locations we have available to us for photos, the willingness of the subjects to be photographed as well as any restrictions placed on us by venues (ie: some ceremonies do not allow any photo taking until the mass is finished). What I can tell you, though, is that we spend the day with our eyes practically glued to the viewfinder of our cameras. As we’re capturing one moment, we’re looking for the next.
Why does the cost of wedding photography vary so much between photographers?
The cost of wedding photography is kind of like fingerprints – it’s different for everyone (or in this case, every photographers). Take a quick peek at this article as it details a breakdown of the cost of your photography package. As you can see, there are so many variables in the mix that it’s next to impossible for you to compare 2 photographers to each other – you simply can’t compare apples to oranges.
What we can say; however, is that some photographers (especially those who are first starting out) may be cutting costs in certain areas. Insurances, extra harddrives and online storage for backing up files, professional level backup gear – these things are all part of a photographer’s cost of doing business. If you’ve found someone whose price seems too good to be true, it might be because something is missing behind-the-scenes that could put your images at risk.
