Toronto Wedding Photographer Under $2000

Toronto Wedding Photographer Under $2000

I photographed my first (kind-of first) real (kind-of real) wedding last week – and DANG these small intimate weddings are definitely my jam! Who knew COVID-19 would create an ideal wedding industry for me?!  Toronto Wedding Photographer Under $2000

 

 

 

Megan and Chris were surrounded by loved ones while they exchanged rings and said their I Do’s. This beautiful outdoor space provided lots of room for a safe distanced wedding, but there was no lack of emotions, as love filled the air and they were finally able to call themselves husband and wife!

 

 

 

The perfect COVID wedding if you ask me! I’ll definitely be accepting more wedding photography bookings like this one! Short, sweet, intimate and outdoor. If you’re looking to book a wedding photographer for a small intimate outdoor wedding like this one, send me a note, and lets work out the details!

Toronto Skyline Sunrise Session

Toronto Skyline Sunrise Session

WOW WOW WOW. I’m so happy that these two were in for an early morning wake up call for a Toronto Skyline Sunrise Session.

I’ve been walking past this field every night just dreaming about a sunrise photo shoot with SOMEONE that would be willing to wake up at 5:30am to meet me here for a sunrise session. Toronto Skyline Sunrise Session.

We got there right at 6am, I put down a blanket and threw on a “chill vibes” playlist from spotify – my go-to when waking up in the mornings. I just wanted to let them have a little moment to themselves, enjoy the calmness of the morning and having the entire space to themselves to enjoy the view.

Lisa was excited to bring my vision to life, and was SUPER happy to let me pick her outfit. We were going for a (in my words) “boho-pintrest-influencer vibe“. This meant something light and flowy, and when she suggested this white kimono, I immediately pictured the sun shining through it, and I got so excited! This is pretty much my first shoot where I had a vision and was super excited to bring it to life.

Unfortunately, the sun was behind a building and didn’t pop out until about 6:45, and I finally got my dream photos!

Rory was nice enough to take some photos of my “assistant” and I at the end of their session. We pretty much just rolled out of bed, and didn’t prepare to have our photos taken, but we tried to straighten out our bed head and we jumped at the offer. He did such a great job with my camera – we love our photos so much, I think I need to print one out really big!

IQ Centre in Oakville

IQ Centre in Oakville

Penalta asked me to take some “artsy” shots of their IQ Centre. It’s so close to completion, but they are still finishing off some interior and landscaping. Come spring time, the IQ Centre in Oakville will look so freakin’ cool.

I was lucky to hitch a ride on the lift, to trolly around the site and get pics form some cool angles. Thanks for the A+ driving, Josh!

Here are some of my fav shots from the shoot. You will notice most of them are angled up, this is because the ground was very messy and not photo-ready.

Ping Canada Fitting Centre

Ping Canada Fitting Centre

Ping Canada just started a website and social media presence. This is very exciting, because up until now, there has only been a US site and social. All of Canada’s sales have pretty much only been through golf town and golf courses.  Ping Canada Fitting Centre

Hole 18, Dundas Valley Golf and Country Club

As you might know, I have recently acquired a love of golf, since meeting my golf-obsessed boyfriend 3 years ago. With him being a Ping employee (and overall lover of all things Ping), I have also been conditioned to be a lover of Ping and ONLY Ping… Hahah.

Anyway…. he hired me to take photos for their new website and social platforms. Some photos of their fit center in Oakville and a few pictures of what a fitting would look like.

You can see some of the photos in action on the Ping Canada website ca.ping.com. As well as on their Instagram and Twitter.  If you’d like to book me for a photo session, click here for my contact information.

Hello 2020!

Hello 2020!

Hello 2020! Wow! Look at me – starting a blog, revamping my website, updating my branding…. Seems like 2020 has brought me some new found motivation to get my shit together 🙂

This is going to be Effie Edits’ YEAR! Hitting goals, turning new leads into sales, and stepping up my gear game!

First on the list for new equipment:

  1. DRONE
    I’ve gotten a lot of interest from clients, on whether I offer drone services. I’ve always been scared because of the licences and permits you need, but DJI just released a baby drone that still shoots great quality footage. Best of all, you don’t need a licence or permits to fly it!
  2. DJI RONIN S
    TBH this is a cop out because I already have it, but I’ve used it so few times, that it feels brand new. I’ll be looking to book a lot more video gigs this year (even pushing it as an add on to my photo services).
  3. External monitor
    I’m finding it so hard to focus, I think this is going to be a game changer. I can already hear my video friends saying “How did you even shoot using the tiny LCD screen?!”
  4. SONY CAMERA (for video)
    This is a maybe. I really am thinking of sticking with my Nikon D750 for 2020 and upgrading next year. Let’s see how this year goes. If i’m booking a lot more video gigs, I might need to step it up sooner. I’d love to have a camera that Auto-focuses while shooting video. Manually focusing is getting pretty hectic, especially while using the Ronin.
  5. WORKSPACE
    Technically not equipment, but I need to start working from a desk and chair a bit more often. I do love editing on my couch while I binge my latest Netflix show… but (weirdly) I seem to get a lot more done without distractions… strange….
    Anywho, IKEA here I come!

This might be all for now. I will leave you with a photo of a puppy that I took at the end of 2019. She is looking majestically into her future, thinking about what the new year will bring her. New toys & treats? I’m hoping for the same.

Future blog posts will likely be project/gallery based – but who doesn’t like a little goal setting for the start of the year?? Hello 2020!
