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
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!)
