We’re thrilled to share these photos from the recent wedding of Tina and Tim. Utilizing the amazing Leica Q mirrorless camera and some wonderful lighting opportunities, we really feel our work produced images that accurately and artistically captured all the beauty and joy of the day.
A wedding day moves quickly and as a wedding photographer it is largely about being prepared to capture those wonderful moments. Great lighting continues to make our couples look their best, conveying all the beauty and emotion of Felicia & Giacomo’s wedding day.
Special thanks to Jessica and Robert for a fantastic day in a great location – Toronto’s historic Distillery District. The architecture, colours and character of this area gave me a wide range of image opportunities and I couldn’t be happier with the results. This was an ideal setting for such a great looking, fun couple.
I’m very much looking forward to their upcoming Niagara on the Lake, Vintage Inns September wedding. From Toronto’s cool urban chic to Niagara’s wine country elegance – superb settings for the union of two classy people.
Black and white photography allows me to dig deeper and find the art in a wedding. Without natural colors, the images project a depth of emotion and beauty that might otherwise be lost. Our eyes paint the wedding using a wide palette. By reducing an image to very basic tones, a richness emerges – transforming a mere visual document into an artistic moment that transcends our memory.
Congratulations to Tracey and Tim, a lovely Edmonton couple who chose scenic Niagara Falls as their wedding location. I was honoured to produce images that showcase their bond and celebration.

Photographs, if successfully executed, have the power to engage fans and those who may become fans beyond the listening experience. The right photo can spark a reader’s interest to learn more about you and your music.
Music photography is sometimes forgotten amongst fashion, editorial, advertising and wedding photography. For me it has always been a thrill to be allowed to share the experience of creating great music. Adrian & Lucas from Gladiator Records opened their studio doors to allow me to capture them while they work. With such an accomplished list of collaborations and a seemingly limitless range of production work the Rezza Brothers are becoming a fixture in popular music. I would like to thank them for allowing me to share in their creative process.
The Vintage Hotels’ properties are world-class wedding venues and I’m very pleased to have a strong relationship with this wonderful corporation. The many Niagara weddings I’ve photographed at The Pillar and Post, Queen’s Landing and Prince of Wales have been memorable, elegant events that I’m proud to have in my portfolio. Each hotel offers unique, distinctive locations that enable me to create beautiful images which completely capture the special essence of each bride and groom – framed by the unmatched aesthetic qualities offered by Niagara on the Lake and Vintage Hotels.
The ever changing dynamics of weddings draw me in. Weddings are all about the unexpected situation, genuine affection and people having a great time. My couples give me an inside view of their day and I am there to take great pictures of them. – Joseph Vetrone
In the world of photography, it is the mixture of light and dark, colour and form, energy and composition, technique and soul that make a photograph sing. Jerry Zolner understands this and his work proves it. His extensive experience within the fashion industry adds a dynamic aesthetic to his wedding photography.

Niagara has no shortage of charming and interesting engagement photo locations and I’m always excited to see how each couple’s unique personalities work with the surrounding space and lighting. I make a strong effort to create lasting, memorable images during these opportunities, knowing that the resulting photos representthe birth of a special, enduring relationship. There’s no doubt in my mind that an engagement photo is just as important as a wedding photo.
I recently had the pleasure of working with 5 local couples and that previously mentioned union of space and personality gave me something truly special to capture. I’m quite proud of the images I produced for Nora & Cory, Fran & Kyle, Andrea & Joe, Jaime & Lou and Paul & Rachel.

Situated beside a waterfall on the banks of a stream, the historic and scenic Ancaster Mill was a wonderful location for Jaime and Lou’s wedding. After nearly 20 years of wedding photography, this was surprisingly the first opportunity I’ve had to work here and I certainly hope I’ll be back soon. This is an amazing venue. The architecture and natural outdoor spaces were completely inspiring and I couldn’t be happier with the resulting images.
Congratulations Jaime and Lou – and thanks for giving me such a wonderful location to work with.
Congratulations to Grace and Chris. This day was a wonderful opportunity to utilize our lighting expertise, particularly within some elegant and stylish indoor spaces. We couldn’t be happier with the results. Working as a team gives us the flexibility to quickly compose images from moments that might otherwise slip away. Thanks to a special couple who provided us with some beautiful locations.

Had an absolutely fantastic session with the newly engaged Felicia & Giacamo. The energy and spirit they brought to the day was infectious and inspiring. Being non-locals, they trusted me for location selection and it all transpired perfectly. Capitalizing on the natural light and colours, we captured moments that truly reflect their comfortable and relaxed connection. They were fun to work with and it shows. I thank them for a great session.

I couldn’t be happier for Ashley and Shelby, the lovely, recently married couple who proved to be a joy to work with. From the memorable ceremony at St. Mark’s Church in Niagara on the Lake, to the awesome reception at John Michael’s Banquet and Conference Centre, the day was perfect and the images reflect that. Worth noting – the wonderful artistry of Maria Delduca and the amazing sounds of Sandy Vine.
