It’s fantastic how the world turns. One day I’m going to high school with Sophie (who was a grade lower than me at St.Pius X High School in Ottawa, woop WOOP! repre-SENT!) and now Magda and I are photographing her and her infectiously friendly fiance Marty.

These two are genuinely in love. Seriously. And fun! To top it off they really wanted to do something unique with their shoot, so they chose the La Ronde amusement park here in Montreal! We had a lot of interesting scenery to use which is always challenging and exciting.

We can’t wait to shoot their wedding in 2012! Yes, 2012. Sophie likes to plan ahead and we approve :)

Here are a few of our favourite images from the day…

So we recently shot a fabulously gorgeous wedding in Vancouver! Not only was this in one of our favourite cities in Canada but it was for an old friend of mine who I worked with at my first animation job years ago!

Brittany and Chris picked a really classy and beautifully situated golf resort to get married in, Rowena’s Inn on the River at the Sand Piper Golf Club. It was located in Harrison Mills about an hour away from Vancouver and all you had around you was mountains and water. A very cozy and romantic location!

The amazing effort that Brittany put into the day making sure everything and everyone looked their very best really made all the difference. Her little details of type writers, bird cages, boxes, bows were so cute and perfect! She really has a talent for this. And did you know this girl runs her own business and is a hot jewellery designer? Check out her site: www.lovetypeb.com !!! Everyone oozed class and noone was afraid to have as much fun as they could all day long!

And what really struck us was how Brittany and Chris never forgot to remind everyone about their strong faith in God! That was the most important part of their special day…it was really touching.

Thank you all for an amazing time, we enjoyed capturing your wedding! Here are some if our favourites of the day :)

  • sandy stobbe - Dear Magda and Bartek,
    I’m crying right now. You have captured memories that I will treasure for the rest of my life. Thank you for working so hard that day and using your talent and being a team . When I saw that you had put costumes on during the dance I was so happy because you were having fun as well as working hard.

    I can’t say enough about how much this means to me. I’m so glad you were part of that special day. sandyJune 14, 2010 – 11:14 pmReplyCancel

New year! Fresh new start! You maaaaay have noticed a little tiny change on our blog recently? ;)

We are proud to introduce our new image to our brides. We are no longer bmk photography,  instead we chose to represent our work, our passion and love for wedding photography as ourselves… Bartek and Magda!

We feel that this refreshing new look and name will benefit us in many ways and we really look forward to starting this wedding season as ourselves.

No longer will we be “hiding” behind a name. We feel it is important for us to connect with our clients right from the moment you hear our names and see our work. We think there shouldn’t be a gap between us and our work. The work we do is very personal and we develop a close relationship with all the couples we meet, so what better way to start it off than for everyone to be familiar with who we are as a team? Also, everything we did as bmk will be the same so don’t worry! Actually, it will be better….a lot better! Just wait and see what we have in store this year for the world. We are so giddy about it!!!

So there. Introducing Bartek & Magda | Photographers. A new beginning :)
