As part of a team of Toronto wedding photographers, Jennifer believes that it’s not just the moments that should be captured; it’s the moments in between the moments which is why Jennifer loves getting to know her clients and establishing a strong rapport before the wedding day.  Drawing inspiration from the bond between her clients and the unpredictability of a wedding day, Jennifer’s approach to a wedding day is that of a truly creative storyteller.

One of Jennifer’s favourite parts of the job is when a client becomes a friend; chatting about wedding details over coffee or a drink.  Some people call that customer service.  Jennifer calls it loving her job.

 

Toronto Wedding Photographers: Jennifer

An Interview

Q: How many years have you been shooting weddings?

A:  I began shooting in 2011 so that would be just over 5 years ago now.  I trained by not only pushing myself to my own creative limits but also as a second photographer with many other seasoned pros.  Being with Ten·2·Ten Photography has now afforded me the opportunity to work with Erika – one of Canada’s top wedding photographers.  It’s been a blast so far and I can’t wait for the wedding seasons to come!

Q: We noticed that you often shoot in Cavan, Peterborough, Cobourg and the Muskokas as well as in Toronto.  How much ground do you cover?

A:  Have car, will travel!  I love, love, LOVE shooting rustic weddings, barn weddings or anything of an intimate nature.  While I can still produce lovely images when I’m in banquet halls, my favourite places to be are the smaller, more intimate types of weddings.

Q: Do you prefer shooting candid images or posed images?  What approach do you take on a wedding day?

A:  As you can see from my wedding portfolio, my style is really a mixture of both candid photojournalism and lightly directed formal photos.  When taking formal photos with a couple, I like to capture not only the moment, but the moments in between the moments – the ones where your true self really comes out.

Q: Is there any particular part of the day that you like photographing the most?

A: I love the getting ready images and the morning fun.  The wedding mornings are such an important part of the story; it’s essential for being able to capture your whole story.  I’m also super in love with taking a wee bit of time from your reception to go and catch the golden hour for a little mini portrait session.  The lighting is a dream and the images are so darn romantic.

Q:  Do you have a favourite wedding venues in which to photograph?

A:  Like I said above, I’m a sucker for anything small and intimate.  Barn weddings, cottage weddings, historic homes, vineyards – all of that makes my heart smile!  I would like to focus more on smaller, week-day elopements in the coming year.  (Please contact us at [email protected] if you’re inquiring about elopement services!)
