Reviews:


Maya & Navid

"We were lucky to find out about Light and Shadow Photography and the pleasure to have our wedding photography done with Wesley. And he turned it to a great personal experience. He went beyond and above what we agreed at the first place, put long hours, very flexible and accommodating during all photo-shooting sessions. There is so much I can praise about his personality and great experience in working with him."

Kristi & Jerred

"We had our wedding photography done by Light and Shadow and he was amazing. He met with me beforehand to go over everything. Talking to him felt real, a connection was easily made, and there was no pressure or engagement photo shoot forced on us like other photography companies were insisting we do. He also had a collection of multiple cameras including vintage ones. On the day of our wedding he worked tirelessly for more than 12 hours straight. He filmed me and my bridesmaids in one location and then dashed across town to film the other half of the wedding party. He was constantly "on" and ready for the next moment. Our package included ALL of the edited images and there was no "limit" we were restricted to (like my other quotes). He gave us them on two discs and has a backup of all of his clients pictures should anything ever happen to them. I would strongly recommend going with Light and Shadow if you are looking for high quality photos from a professional with experience who is real, not pushy. Thanks again for all your effort on our wedding photos!!"

Corina & Michael

"Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value... My fiancée and I just received our photos from our engagement photos session... We are absolutely thrilled with all the photos, can't wait to have Wesley doing our photography on our wedding day in May 2022. He made us feel very comfortable and he is also very professional and his work speaks for itself... Both my fiancée and I highly recommend Wesley if you have an upcoming celebration whether it be a wedding or party..."




Services Description:


Consultation and wedding photography planning

Consultations are very important for both of us. It helps you to answer any questions you may have, be comfortable with us and how we photograph, and have your peace of mind that everything is being done to have a memorable special day.

To have a smooth photo session, we plan all our photo shoots ahead of time. Knowing the details e.g. the number of family members, any unique relationship, an special item or location, etc. all help to plan and create a smooth photo session.

Organizing the group of family members is often the most time consuming and for us not knowing the names and relationship of everyone, create problems and it is very time consuming. It is often recommended that a member of the bridal party uses a list to keep track and coordinate the families and guest for the photo session.

We offer free consultations to help plan your photography wedding day.

Engagement photo session

The engagement photo session is a fun and very important time for you and for us. We get familiar with the poses that will best suits you so we can plan it for your wedding day. You will know how we work and will be confident that your wedding photos will be a work of art to cherish forever.

Engagement can have one or several locations and can be a short two hours or last several hours. We like to choose unique and interesting locations and props, like old barns, crop fields, vintage buildings, waterfalls, vintage airplanes, locomotives, cars, boats, and most important, a location or prop that is meaningful for you.

Fearless Bridal photo session

"Au contraire" what most people think, the Fearless Bride sessions are a very unique and fun photo opportunities. The old idea of destroying your beautiful dress by taking a swim on the beach or throwing paint all over the dress is done and gone.

Fearless Bride can be a beautiful and creative photo art piece. Unique ideas like riding a horse or a motorcycle, hanging by a wire at CN Tower, or a balloon ride, will make this unique photo session a timeless memory. There is always the extreme like going for sky diving or bungee jumping or even scuba diving.

There is no limit for the fearless bride photo session. Because a Fearless Bride session is so unique and most of them can only be tried once, we usually have two photographers. Most of the time these sessions have to be planed way in advanced and most of them are photographed after the wedding when you are back from your honeymoon.

Wedding coverage locations

Most weddings have four location; the Bride's home, the ceremony, the park, and the reception. Larger weddings usually include the Groom's home and the salon for the bride. Between the ceremony and the reception also can have several extra locations. Planning ahead is very important since time is limited to photograph that beautiful unique moment.

How long is the engagement photo shoot?

Usually being the first photo session we like the engagement to be relaxed, fun and enjoyable. Engagement can have a single location or several locations increasing the length of time and travel time. To take advantage of the beautiful location sceneries and background, usually one to two hour per location is adequate.

How much time do you need to photograph our wedding?

Each wedding is unique and vary with the size of the wedding, wedding party, family members, and number of guest.
We usually ask for two hours per location and on a larger wedding and large families and guest you should consider an extra hour at the park.

Destination Wedding Photography

One of the most important question on a Destination Wedding is: Who will be your photographer?

Hiring a photographer from your destination or a photographer from the hotel on your destination can be very low cost but also can be a nightmare. You will never get to meet your photographer prior to your event nor will you be able to meet during post production. You also won't experience his/hers work in person during a photo session like an engagement photo session.

The benefits of hiring a professional photographer close to your home town area and travel with you, will give you a peace of mind and the confidence that you know his work first hand. You will meet with us prior to your wedding day and even experience how we photograph on your engagement photo session. Having a photographer based close to you is making sure your photos will be just the way you dreamed. The post work will be reviewed by you in person prior to your final order is delivered, something almost impossible with a hotel or a photographer from your destination wedding.

We usually would arrive two or three days prior to your wedding day, and quite often flying the same flight as the wedding party providing more beautiful photo opportunities. We scout all locations and find the most beautiful and unique places to photograph your wedding day and most of times we can even stay a couple of extra days for extra honeymoon photos.

Your unique Destination Wedding will be photographed creatively and professionally and you deserve this peace of mind.

Second or third photographer

A wedding is one beautiful and unique event and capturing all the unique images is a remarkable memory recorded forever. Often two photographers are shooting a wedding making your time more enjoyable and giving you the peace of mind that you will have a variety of images from unique angles.

Two photographers also save time, while one is photographing details and guests, the main photographer can concentrate on you. Sometimes a third photographer is also used giving you the opportunity to have unique aerial drone wedding photography.

What is included in Post-Production?

Any work done after any photo shoot is considered "post-production". These include: custom editing, retouching, digital art, creating composite images, framing, mounting canvas, designing and mounting albums, custom developing film and/or prints, or any other work related done after the photo shoot. The amount of work done is relative to the work required.

Custom Editing

Custom editing will enhance your image in a creative way making it a unique art piece. These can be digital or artistically hand edited e.g. hand painting a Black & White image using real ink instead of digitally editing the image.
