Toronto Wedding Photography, Engagement Photo Sessions + Elopements

YOU CAN'T STOP LOVE - In recent days, some of our Toronto wedding photographer vendors have expressed their desire to accommodate couples who don’t want to wait to be married and are rushing the ceremony.

Many couples have recently discovered that less is more when it comes to wedding planning in Toronto, and those small weddings allow them to truly enjoy every aspect of their day. These intimate events allow brides and grooms to be fully present, as they are less worried and intimidated about the sheer size and scope of the day. While they may be planning a sweet and simple Toronto elopement, couples still want to have their wedding day documented. It's important to work with a WPJA Toronto photographer who specializes in elopements and who understands the unique dynamic of this type of event. The right photographer will capture the events of the day, the atmosphere of the event and the most important details.

The WPJA has an abundance of top-ranked, Toronto documentary wedding photographers available right now who understand that some weddings and elopements can’t wait. Find yours today!

Elopement Photographers for Small Toronto Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small Toronto wedding event is a wedding photojournalist’s dream: a fairly open schedule with lots of breathing space for creativity – it’s just the photographer, the couple, the officiant, and perhaps a few select companions.

Ontario WPJA members are ready to document any mini, themed, fast, or elopement wedding, even if it is a Monday-Thursday ceremony. Search for the “Can Shoot Weddings on Short Notice!” message on the listings below.

We are anxious to create a picture story chronicling your symbolic, unique, modern, small wedding from beginning to end. In this sense, it is no different from any other event that we have covered. The emphasis is on documenting key moments, capturing spontaneous displays of emotion, telling your real love story, as well as creating artistic portraits and details.

RAVES, REVIEWS, AND Toronto WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER RECOMMENDATIONS

Dawn & Man

Thank you for creating such a precious memory for our wedding. It was when I searched on the internet for just the perfect photographer for our wedding that I came upon your website. Your work is truly inspiring, your pictures are full of warmth and you are able to capture all those touching and meaningful moments. With you, we were certain that our wedding pictures are in good hands and we looked forward to a warm and God-loving wedding. Recalling the discussions before the wedding, your replies were always quick and passionate. You asked for our wedding details and our input on ideas gave us confident that you were serious in your work. Meanwhile we expressed to you that we hope to capture a lot of happy and cheerful moments, not necessary of ourselves but also of our guests. Now with the photos in our hands, we cannot help but laugh out loud as we go through the pictures in delight. We were wondering what was exactly happening during the time you caught the picture of people laughing so hard. We are sharing all these lovely pictures with our family and friends and everyone is so touched and pleased with them. Of course, you made us look so beautiful in these photos as we never thought we could be so photogenic! Our parents are also praising with laughter, "They are so stunning!". We really want to give a big thank you for the work you have done on our special day. Thank you Lord we met such an upbeat and passionate photographer who is able to grasp precious moments and is thoughtful of the bride and groom. We also appreciate your two assistants for their help. Wish you all the best and hope you can continue taking more sweet photos for the newly weds.

Mike and I finally got through all the pictures last night, and I can tell you that we had such a good time going over all of the happy moments (we had quite a few big laughs as well!). You did a fantastic job and we really cannot thank you enough. We were truly thrilled with the results and couldn't have asked for better people with whom to share our day.

To John and his wonderful team, Thank you so much for your amazing work. I can’t thank you enough for doing such a great job at capturing the memories on our special day, just the way we liked. Thanks for being so understanding and completely flexible on the day. We were probably one of your most chaotic clients (we know that) but your team’s and your calm presence was exceptional. We never felt pressured for once on the day and you just went with flow. All the meetings I had with you before the wedding were informative. It was a great idea to have met you properly before the wedding. We absolutely love our videos and the pictures – they bring us back to the day every time we see them. I particularly love how they capture the happiness and emotions of our friends and families, they are priceless and we can’t wait to show them to our friends and families from overseas! John, sincerely thank you again for making our wedding day so memorable. Your creativity and special ability deserves to be recognized. I have no doubt recommending your service to all of my friends and families and I’m looking forward to future collaborations with you and your great team. Best wishes, Kate Chow
