Kay & Rudo are from Zimbabwe. It is one of the countries on our bucket list which we’re dying to see at some point, so you can imagine all the questions we had for this handsome couple! Kay came to Canada many years ago and developed great relationships on this continent, so they threw a great party for their friends at the Atlantine Golf Club on Ile-Perrot. With stunning sunset views over the St. Lawrence River, we took the opportunity of using the beautiful grounds for some wonderful photo opportunities. The ceremony was equally sweet and charming but we’re especially jealous of the photographer who will be capturing their second wedding party back home in Zimbabwe!
Kay and Rudo, we wish you a lifetime of happiness and love. Thank you for choosing us to capture your day and we leave you with a handful of our favourite captures from your special day. xoxo, Bartek & Magda
Well, that day just had to come didn’t it? That dreaded word came over the radio the day of Eve and Zach’s wedding…rain. We’ve been at it for many years and have quite a bit under our belts when it comes to dealing with a rainy day, but it must be worrisome for the couple and their families. Not Eve and Zach, however! They took the day by the horns and made it beautiful no matter the rain. And so it really was. Super relaxed, happy to be with each other, Eve and Zach got married and everyone had an absolute time of their lives. The cherry on top for us, was how wonderful it was that Eve and Zach were cool with every idea we had and the result is below. We absolutely adore it when our couples are awesome to work with, so thank you guys! We told you braving the rain would be worth it!
The wedding was held at the gorgeous Place d’Armes Hotel in the Old Port of Montreal. Everything from the Ketubah, to the touching Jewish wedding ceremony, to the Hora and finally the off the wall party, everyone had an incredible amount of fun and love in their hearts. Eve and Zach, thank you for choosing us to capture your day. We wish you a long and happy life together and we leave you with a slideshow, as well as our favourite moments from your day. xoxo, Bartek & Magda
Su-lin is one of the sweetest people. She searched us out YEARS ago and put us in her back pocket for that one special day when she would get married. We had no idea, but we are incredibly flattered. It honestly created a special bond with Su-Lin and Jeff knowing this and we meshed immediately.
Su-Lin and Jeff’s wedding was a beautiful mid-day event. It was a brunch wedding at the one and only Graydon Hall Manor in Toronto. Once a residence, this 1936 mansion was the perfect setting for Su-Lin’s impeccable style and elegance. I want to say that it was both Su-Lin and Jeff’s creative input that made this all happen…but guys, we all know who was in charge! Orchestrated to a tee by Laura Olsen, of Laura Olsen Events, this sunny day played out exactly as everyone hoped it would. Complete with their little pup, we spent a lovely day capturing moments of Su-Lin and Jeff in all of Graydon Hall’s beautiful corners and gardens. There were a lot moments, however, where both we and Su-Lin and Jeff broke down in laughter from someone’s horrible joke which was a welcome theme all four of us absolutely loved.
Without further a-do, here are our favourite captures of Su-Lin and Jeff’s classy wedding. We wish you a lifetime of happiness together and we’re thrilled to have met you and had a chance to capture your lovely day. xoxo, Bartek & Magda
Sometimes we meet a couple with a special connection to us, and this time Jessica and Greg were exactly that. When looking for wedding photographers, Greg’s mom was flipping through wedding magazines and liked the look of a photo gracing the cover of the Spring/Summer 2011 edition of the Ottawa Wedding Magazine. Greg and Jessica were intrigued and when we met, Greg realized we went to the same high school together and were just a year apart! I remember Greg running all sorts of events, clubs and being the go getting head boy of the school and he’s no different today! Both Jessica and Greg are wonderful, adventurous people. Travelling the world and doing good things for people, all we see is happiness down the line.
The wedding was in the beautiful Gatineau hills at Camp Fortune. This too is a near and dear place to us since Magda and I skied there while dating through high school! The chalet provided a beautiful and rustic setting for Jessica and Greg’s wedding. We leave you with our favourite moments and we thank you for choosing us to capture your special day. Also, don’t forget to xoxo, Bartek & Magda
Recently, we had the pleasure of meeting and photographing Linh and Jamie on their wedding day. This was a special photoshoot, as we were only their for the portrait portion of the day, but as usual with our wonderful couples, it was a blast! It was extra special for us since Linh is the sister of one of our brides whom we photographed many many years ago, so it was a pleasure reconnecting throughout the day. The wedding took place at the wonderful Ritz Carlton here in downtown Montreal so we took the opportunity to do the photos in their courtyard, as well as along Sherbrooke Street. After Ling’s never ending smile, a wonderful bridal party and old friends, here are a few of our favourite images from the shoot. xoxo, Bartek & Magda
