This is Kristen and Bryce, they were married at The Old Mill in Toronto. I knew that they were going to be a fun couple, and their wedding didn’t disappoint. This is my take on the “Through the veil shot”, I had never done one before, I would love to hear what you think of it.

    Hi Scott!

    Stunning! Can’t wait to see more! Scott,as the parents of the groom, we were incredibly impressed with your work as well as your presence and personality. My husband performs alot of weddings and I onced worked for a photography company that had several wedding photographers. You are definitley one of the best we’ve seen.

I have every intention of posting a full set of images from Sarah and Casey’s fantastic wedding. I have around 25 images ready to go and sitting begging to be posted, however, I have couples patiently waiting for their images and that comes first. (it takes a considerable amount of time for a blog post with 25 images) But I can’t resist waiting any longer to post this image. Easily only of my favorites from this season, it’s images like this that makes me so thankful to be a wedding photographer. More to come shortly. And you can find their teaser image here.

Daina and Barry really are an incredible couple, and they truly had an incredible wedding that was truly their own. Anyone who knows Daina, knows that she is a character, and shows her emotions and excitement on her sleeve, she was so happy – I loved to see it. And I was even happier to photograph it. Congratulations Daina and Barry, I can’t wait to share your images with you. Here is one of my favorites.

I often ask my couples to write a “quick two sentence testimonial” to put in my list of testimonials on my website. That is what I did with Inge and Justin who had a fantastic wedding in Inge’s parents backyard on a gorgeous August evening. Well Inge and Justin went above and beyond with their testimonial, and I am overwhelmed by their kind words.

Inge and Justin – you had such a major hand in making great images with your willingness to simply trust me, and try different things. That lead to a great wedding photograph like this. Thank you again. Here is Inge’s words verbatim.

“We were so happy we chose re:action Photography to photograph our wedding.  Right from our first conversations with Scott we had a good feeling about choosing him as our photographer. He was laid back which we liked because we both are too, but so extremely professional that we really had peace of mind knowing we would be proud of our photos after the wedding was over – quite a nice thing to have during the uncertainty of planning a wedding!  Scott definitely has his own sense of artistic, yet natural style which was what we originally fell in love with when first looking through his portfolio. From the way he captures sunlight, to his ability of revealing a person’s personality with his camera, while all at the same time keeping the images so crisp and pure… he knows what he’s doing and he does it really well. Scott was a pleasure to work with leading up to the wedding too, we liked how he’d throw in a bit of advice which we were actually happy to get because he’s been to more weddings than anyone we know!  Our wedding photos ended up absolutely stunning, even better than we imagined. We will forever hold them dear to us, and although we are always excited to show our photos off to people, we are more importantly so thrilled to have such beautiful representations of our wedding that will be truly timeless forever.  We are very happy with our photos and our choice in re:action Photography.”

-Inge

I really do think that it is smart as a wedding photographer to take a quick break from your primary discipline. So I did a fun fashion type shoot with my friend Neil Moser the other night. Here are some of my favorites from the shoot.

(These are some lighting techniques that I am working on and going to be incorporating into my wedding photography)

    Scott, LOVE the new lighting! I am inspired to get some lighting for outdoor use!! Beautiful work – as usual!
