Along with the numerous photography difficulties of documenting a live event, capturing good video comes with the added challenge of recording good sound so the final product not only looks good, but sounds good too. Ride along with me and Tristan as we film a wedding with it’s own audio quirks.

Creativity gets pushed to the max with engagement concepts that we do. However, big shout-outs to Ron and Lauren for being troopers and even recording their own letters! Here’s a small peek of what we created together!
Join the crew as we film a wedding… Aperture Lane style! It’s a wedding ride-along!

It’s FINALLY HERE - our annual Aperture Lane familia film? Here’s to the family and friends we celebrated with in 2017! Thank you all for your love and support last year! And here’s to inspiring and touching others with your narrative!
Stories bring us all together!
Sending our love to the fathers and father figures out there who hold it down for their loved ones. It’s not an easy job but we need you and a appreciate you all the way!
Happy Fathers Day!
The epic finale to Chris and Katya's engagement - a gathering of just over 100 people hailing from literally all around the globe! Our couple is committed to their friends and family. They are also genuine, as witnessed in their raw and quirky wedding vows. It's always good times hanging with these two!
Enjoy the little things. These are clips from Chris and Katya’s engagement concept film. It worked out well with the Thanksgiving theme!
I love doing engagement concepts before the wedding. Apart from getting VIP access to the couple for an evening, I get to create a film with a more unique feel.
Where has the time gone? We are just over half way through 2017 and I’m still inhaling the good vibes from 2016.
One weekend in November during one of my Saturday editing days, I got a phone call from a passionate business owner who needed video. Receiving a call like this wasn't uncommon - it was more the idea of what she wanted filmed.
Here begins my first encounter with Shawn Solomon. She is the owner Thornhill Skin Clinic but, even though we would potentially use that space, it was more of a personal project. She enthusiastically talked about her daughter's classmate who had a heart transplant and the story of how she discovered. I got the gist of what she wanted us to do but nothing would prepare me for the experience I would have meeting Amayah and her mom, Nel.
During thanksgiving weekend, I ventured out with Shannon (from Shannon Robbins Photography) to the Kelso Conversation Area out in Milton, ON. As Daniel and Gizelle’s photo/video team for their wedding next July, we were honoured to spend some time with them and get to know them a little better. As opposed to your regular engagement photo shoot when it’s mostly just photography, Shannon and I both directed the couple to get capture both stills and video clips just as we would on the wedding day.
After exploring the conservation area, I will say that I really like it. It provides quite a diversity in environments. We went from a lake beach area with willows to a cliff showcasing the surrounding natural areas to a wooden area with trees shielding us from the sun and wind. We definitely got bang for our buck here. Speaking of bang for your buck, bring some money as the conservation area is not free admission - but is totally worth it!
My goal was to collect footage for a future project but I loved the footage so much, I thought I’d throw together and little some’m-some’n to get us all excited for Daniel & Gizelle’s big day next year! As always, I’d love to hear what you think. Enjoy!
