3Photography Customer Review Highlights
“I cannot say enough positive things about Michelle and 3Photography! Working with 3Photography was the most stress-free experience. Michelle and Shelby were super friendly, kind, and funny and made my husband and me (and our wedding party) feel totally comfortable in front of the camera. And we are so happy with the result! We have SO MANY beautiful photos from the day. 100% recommend 3Photography for your wedding!”
“From the beginning, we had a great experience with Jaclyn and 3Photography! After our first chat on the phone, I felt comfortable and heard. We had a great engagement shoot with the most beautiful images (which we got in less than a month!). Our wedding day was perfect, Jaclyn fit right in and was there every time I looked up capturing every moment. We’ve only gotten a peek of our photos so far and I absolutely love them! I can’t wait for the rest and can’t wait to build our album! I also love that we get all the images she shoots and the online platform is great and so easy to use. The message board is also super helpful – it keeps all messages, documents and links all in one place. Thank you!“

Mango Studios Customer Review Highlights
“My husband and I were so happy with Mango Studios. Even though we have a very small intimate wedding we decided to spend money on two photographers and we do not regret it. We just received the photos and they are breathtakingly beautiful. Stevana is an artist and she captured so many lovely moments. The photographers were amazing and when we were being photographed we were very comfortable despite being very camera shy. My husband and I hate to take photos even for social media. But that wedding day we turned into models :). As well they all turned out very natural and do not look too posed. To be honest, I didn’t really know exactly what I wanted in style of photos. But through a few emails and after sharing a few photos of what I liked with Stevana she seemed to have read my mind and exceeded my expectations. I almost cried when I saw how wonderful they look. I will treasure these photos forever. Stevana was so friendly and approachable. Also maybe I am biased, but I think the photos belong in a magazine they are that good! Thank you with all my heart – Stevana and Mango Studios!“
“After delaying our wedding two times for three separate dates over the pandemic, we had high expectations from family and friends to deliver the party of the year. We could only hope the photographers at Mango Studios could capture the moments we desperately craved. My husband and I were not remotely disappointed. Paired with lead photographer Adel Keshavarz and his photography crew, Mango studios perfectly captured both the memorable and candid moments of us, our family, friends, and guests to illustrate our wedding. We both found them to as professional as they were creative to create the images that have wowed anyone who’s seen them. We cannot recommend them enough nor can we thank them enough for being a perfect part of our perfect day.”

Purple Tree Customer Review Highlights
“When we first discovered Purple Tree Photography, we instantly fell in love with the way they captured couples/weddings and knew that we had to have them for our wedding. From the initial consultation with Sasha, through COVID postponement etc…the Purple Tree family was such a delight to work with. We recently received some teaser photos from our wedding day and they are absolutely STUNNING (as anticipated) and we are now even more excited for the full gallery!! JUST WOW.
Carly and Yurii were our two photographers for the day and we feel so fortunate to have gotten the chance to work with them both and have them photograph our wedding day. Both Carly and Yurii truly made us, our wedding party, and all our guests feel SO comfortable! We all had so much fun!
Thank you for these beautifully captured memories that we will cherish for our lifetime. Purple Tree Photography is definitely worth the investment – no hesitation. We are truly grateful!”
“We were attracted by the Purple Tree when we were hunting for wedding photographers back then and now we are thrilled to write our own reviews for it. We are so happy to have Calvin and the Purple Tree team as our wedding photographer! The photos taken were not just beautiful pictures but also capturing the moment and the stories. They are the type of photos that whenever you look back, you remember the laughters and tears and every feeling during the special moment. Thank you Calvin and the Purple Tree team!!”

“Scarlet was an absolute joy! She not only takes freakin’ amazing photos, she is also such an amazing person, and great ball of happiness to be around!
She has so much knowledge and experience with weddings, and she was glad to share her knowledge and help us is so many ways beyond photography! She was an absolute pleasure, and we were glad to have her at our wedding! Definitely a welcome guest!
“When my husband and I first got engaged we both knew early on that we wanted Scarlet to be our photographer and let me tell you she did NOT disappoint! Not only did Scarlet capture the most beautiful candid moments of us during our engagement shoot and wedding but working with her was a dream.
She takes the time to get to know her clients, which really put my husband and I at ease. We are not the most comfortable in front of the camera but she is just so sweet and kind that she made us feel relaxed. We completely forgot to be self conscious! She brought out and captured the real us in a way that seemed totally effortless. Her joy is contagious in a way that is so so special which is exactly the type of energy we wanted around us on our big day. We will definitely work with Scarlet again the next time we have a big milestone to celebrate!”

Olive Photography Customer Review Highlights
“What can I say about Anastasia? She is a wonderful human being full of love and light who has an incredible eye for photography. After following her on social media for a while, I booked a solo shoot. I was nervous at first, but she made me feel beautiful and comfortable within seconds of meeting her. It felt like working with a friend instead of a stranger. It was a no-brainer to then hire her for my wedding.
My engagement shoot was sooo much fun! I was nervous that my partner wouldn’t be too comfy in front of the camera, but she brought out so many fun and natural smiles from him. The pictures were gorgeous and became the backbone of all of our stationery for the wedding. Our wedding photos were then that much easier, and the colours captured and highlighted were amazing.
In addition to being highly skilled with cameras and editing, Anastasia was so helpful in navigating my wedding and covid-19. She checked in, helped us develop a timeline and made us feel supported through so much uncertainty. I would absolutely hire her again and recommend her to everyone!“
“My wife and I were so happy we had chosen Olive Photography for our wedding celebration. Although, there were some hiccups due to the pandemic, Anastasia was reasonable with timing and contracts. She is very personable with such positive energy and that made her easy to work with. The work done for our celebration speaks for itself, how she was able to capture those special moments throughout the day and evening without shying away to get that extra money shot, really showed me her passion and showed us why we had chosen Olive Photography. Best decision we made and probably will be for many others. Thanks again Anastasia”

How To Choose A Wedding Photographer
There are many wedding photographers in Toronto, and it can be difficult to choose the right one. Here are some tips to help you find the best photographer for your wedding:
1. Do your research
Before you start looking for a photographer, it’s important to do your research and figure out what style of photography you want. Do you want traditional posed shots, or are you looking for something more creative?
Once you know what style you’re looking for, you can start searching for photographers that specialize in that style.
2. Look at portfolios
When you’re looking at photographers’ websites, be sure to look at their portfolios. This will give you a good idea of their style and the types of photos they take.
3. Read reviews
If you know anyone who has recently gotten married, ask them for recommendations.
You can also read online reviews to get an idea of what other couples thought of their experience with the photographer.
4. Meet in person
Once you’ve narrowed down your options, it’s important to meet with the photographer in person. This will give you a chance to get to know them and see if you’re comfortable with them.
5. Ask about pricing
Be sure to ask about pricing before you book a photographer. Wedding photography can be expensive, so you’ll want to make sure you’re getting a good deal.
6. Get a contract
Once you’ve decided on a photographer, be sure to get a contract in writing. This will protect you in case anything goes wrong on the day of the wedding.
