Old Mill Toronto Wedding Styled Shoot; Nevada and Yusuf

October 30, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

My photography journey started when I was 12. My mother's digital camera took the honour of documenting my "emo" lifestyle - a black heart drawn on my hand placed on sand, with a circle drawn around it, my Chuck Taylors with everything else in black and white except for the red details, and self-portraits of me with Photoshopped lyrics from bands that I considered my heart and soul. Ah yes, those were the days of 30 Seconds To Mars. :)

Saying I have a flair for the dramatics is an understatement. It has become quite necessary for my artistry and it has taken over a decade to finesse my style. The wedding industry is filled with brightness and white, a very strong contrast to my obvious love for darkness. Thusly you will find the vast change my photographic style goes through between 2014 to the present. However, it is not that I cannot shoot in natural light or well-lit situations, it is simply that I thrive in very poorly lit ones.

Here, I share with you the first wedding-related set that I have ever shot. This was when I was in doubt about my love for fashion photography. (More about that one day.) You will find that they are more on the commercial/editorial style, because of my then experience with magazine work.

By all means please comment! Yes, my editing used to be more yellow-ish then. Pun intended for those who know my humour. :)
