Photo Of The Day: An Elegant Dancing Bride

I am a wedding photographer based in Toronto, I document wedding moments from a special ‘Cafa’ angle and create loving memories with passion.

I have won many awards from many international wedding organisations in the first four years of my career. I am not a story-maker, but a story-teller, telling the loving stories in an artistic way. I provide my services beyond the Toronto area.

Photography is much more than a job for me. The camera helps me meet amazing couples in around the world and I love it.

This wedding photo was taken at Guildwood park located in Toronto. Most of the time, the time and place will be selected by the couple. I would love to do a photography session under the charming sunset but at the time this wedding photo was taken I had to fight with the harsh noon day sunlight instead. Actually, this was one of the shots to break the ice. As usual, I didn’t come with any expectations or plan. I was just following my heart and feelings, depending on the actual environment and my continuous observation. I didn’t find the light, the light found me.

That’s a challenge, which attracts me deeply. So, when I was walking behind the bride, the shadows burst into my sight and I knew I can’t let this moment slip away. I asked the bride if she could do some random and relaxed shooting with me, the answer was yes. I told the bride ‘it’s a warm-up, just stand between me and the sun, do anything you want like dancing, looking around, jumping, spinning, spinning and jumping.’ The only thing left for me to do was was to click, click, and click, in the CAFA way.

I retouched the photograph in Lightroom, colour temperature, contrast, saturation, curve and pressure, darkened the background. I have no fixed work process, I love to try everything until I feel comfortable. The key point of this image in my mind is texture, the texture of the sunlight.

The pleasure of photography for me is encountering, no plan, no expectation. If something comes to you, capture it, in your own unique way.

 

The Select Bride’s Thoughts
Elegant & beautiful.  We wanted to know more about this image and the dancing bride or her wedding day.  It’s not a typical wedding shot and that’s what attracted us to it.
