(La La Land) Wedding Dreams Come to Life

If you are in need of a wedding photographer, trust us, go with Avenue Photo. You will not be disappointed! We cannot recommend them enough. We were referred to Margaret/Avenue Photo by our wedding planning team, Fidan (Designed Dream). We had 3 photographers who were really difficult to choose from, but in the end we felt that it just clicked ;) between us and Margaret. We are so glad we did!
At our first meeting, we were instantly amazed by how fast we were at ease with her. Our personalities really jived, we could not stop laughing and chatting. We left feeling like she needed to be part of our wedding team, almost instantly. And to add to the fun, the work by Avenue Photo is outstanding; there is a beautiful airy, clear light that exudes from their photography, a beautiful artistry to the style that we wanted captured as part of our wedding memories.
We had our engagement session in Fall 2017. Similar to our consultation, Margaret eased us into the photos. She helped us feel comfortable (much of the laughter continued), guided us through poses, and got to know us as a couple which was really sweet. The session was a nice way to build the relationship with Margaret and “practice” for our wedding photos. Also really love that Margaret spends the time to feature the sneak peek photos on her blog with a thoughtfully written write-up. Love the personal touch and reading through her perspective.
Choosing a wedding day location for photos in the city proved to be a bit challenging, but Margaret helped ease our minds. She phoned us a few days before the big day to talk through some details, see if we had any questions, and provided amazing advice which was so appreciated!
We woke up on our wedding day to a pretty significant downpour, however, that did not dampen our spirits. And as fate would have it, post ceremony the rain had cleared just in time for our bridal party/bride & groom photos. Margaret arrived with her colleague Adam promptly the morning of our wedding. Both the groom’s and bride’s parties had a fantastic time with the photographers (Avenue Photo) and videographers (Life’s Reel). Both photo/video teams were made up of such great friendly professional people, who seemed to also mesh well together and truly made the day fun and enjoyable. They worked in the background as the events unfolded, gave us tips for the posed captures, and led us through catching our special moments. The fun continued through a wonderful jam-packed evening; having Margaret and Adam there to catch all the details, those we caught and those we missed, was spectacular. They were even flexible enough to let us add-on an additional half-hour to catch our ‘first’ dance prior to leaving.
Margaret surprised us post wedding with a few sneak peek shots (incl the blog sneak peek) and with a special delivery of the full collection. Turn around time was so quick, though we were awaiting to see the captures with such high anticipation! We received a USB with digital copies, an online gallery to help us conveniently share with family/friends, and a thoughtful sweet wedding gift with a selection of our printed photos in a beautiful glass/gold keepsake box. We are so moved and incredibly pleased and grateful to see all the stunning photos and have these memorable keepsakes. We are confident that the next phase in creating our wedding album will continue to be the fun enjoyable process that it has been to date.
Margaret and Adam really helped us learn that a truly exceptional photographer can capture amazing photos and make it work optimally, regardless of the surroundings. It is the essence of the people: the love, playfulness, personalities that end up being the focal point and it resonates so true in their work. We are so glad of our choice to have Avenue Photo as part of our wedding journey - their eye for detail, professionalism, and fun genuine personalities and care are so appreciated and made all the difference. Thank you so very much with all our hearts for making this such an awesome memorable experience!! xoxo, Cristina and Patrick

Choosing Avenue Photo for our wedding photos was one of the best decisions we did for our wedding! Adam and Robyn captured such beautiful photos and we were so overjoyed to relive the moment through their shots. Adam even managed to photograph quiet moments that just captured the feeling we had of our big day. Best of all, he is able to balance posed and candid shots very nicely, which gave us a good combination of editorial/stylized photos, along with natural/candid shots. We can't recommend him highly enough!
Last but not the least, working with Margaret is such a breeze! She is professional, responsive and always goes above and beyond to make the process so incredibly easy.

Margaret and Monika made our night absolutely perfect! We were so happy to have chosen the right photography team for the job. We originally met Margaret and clicked right away. That initial bond just made the whole process so easy. We did engagement and wedding photos. Margaret had great ideas for the engagement photos and listened to our location suggestions as well. She made us feel super comfortable in front of the camera. The wedding was flawless. We had smoke bombs and sparklers and they made sure to capture every single moment and took pictures of all the little details, all while being super professional and listening to all our crazy family photo requests. Everyone was complimenting the photographers, they got along with everyone at the wedding, it was just the perfect fit. Thank you so much ladies!!! Highly recommend.

You and Bart, your guests, family and friends were so much fun.
We enjoyed every aspect of your day, it was truly like documenting two of my friends get married, and I could not ask for me.
We still have to make a date for that glass of wine at Adamo! ;o)

Margaret and Adam were absolutely fantastic. We got married at the King Edward Hotel in downtown Toronto. It was very busy downtown, but Margaret and Adam got us some beautiful photos in front of local landmarks. The photos inside the venue were also spot-on, and we got through our whole shot list without much stress. We've now seen our photos and they were better than we could have hoped. We also used Margaret for our engagement shoot, and they were just as good.
It's also important to note that Margaret and Adam were great to work with; they're really nice people and a pleasure to have at the wedding.
In sum, we couldn't recommend Avenue Photo highly enough.

Perfect Wedding Story

I couldn't have been happier to have chosen Avenue Photo for our wedding. Everything from our first meeting with Margaret, to the day of our wedding, and the follow-ups shortly thereafter, I continued to be impressed with their quick response, professionalism, and superb talent.
The photos were the perfect style we were looking for to capture the moments of our wedding with a good number and balance of posed and candid shots. Adam did a wonderful job working with me and my husband to ensure we got all the photos needed to complete our wedding story.
We've received so many compliments from our family and friends! I definitely recommend both Margaret and Adam to capture your important life moments!
