Incredible from start to finish
Ian was an absolute delight to work with. Ian captured the moments we'll be talking about for the rest of our lives, as well as the ones we thought we missed. He was attentive to our needs and extremely professional. He delivered hundreds of photos and a beautiful sideshow on time with virtually no re-edits required. Months after my wedding, I still find myself flipping through the photos so happy that I made the choice to pick Ian Xu Studio as my wedding day photographer.Sent on 24/12/2020

Ian was fantastic to work with. We contacted Ian after seeing some of his photos online - we particularly liked his ability to capture candid moments. Due to the emerging and changing situation with the pandemic, our wedding plans were finalized only a month before the actual date - we had a backyard wedding. Ian was very flexible and came up with some good suggestions as we discussed a few scenarios. He is well organized and did his research beforehand to get to know the area (e.g. nearby parks). We love our photos and would highly recommend Ian!Sent on 27/09/2020

Photographer that thinks out of the box
I’ve only get to meet Ian in person one day before my wedding as I was not in the country before my big day. I was surprised at how he can endure our craziness and not get mad (we are a crazy couple). I loved how he was able to take shots that are not just the ordinary wedding pose shot, but always trying to get the candid moments too which I think most represent us. Also, our videographer, Leo, was also very good at capturing the great moments during the photoshoot and the ceremony. The big day was cold, windy, and rainy; we can’t help but complained a lot as we are wearing our gowns with of course very little fabric to keep warm. They didn’t get angry at us as we kept yapping about how cold, how many more shots to go before we get somewhere warm. They were being very professional and also trying on different angle and shots for us. Thank you very much. I can’t wait to see the finish products and use it on my reception in Hong Kong.Sent on 09/01/2020
Highly recommend to couples that doesn’t want to have standardize pose photos taken!

Owner and Principal Photographer
My name is Ian Xu. I’m an award-winning wedding photographer based in Toronto, Ontario.
First of all, congratulations on your upcoming wedding! Like marriage, I feel serendipity and compatibility play a big role in finding your perfect wedding photographer. On that note, I’m so happy that you found me here. How about the compatibility part, you ask. I consider myself sensitive, observant, considerate, creative, witty and quirky. These characteristics reflect in my style and show through my photos. I crave for sincere emotions (the happy, the sad, the dramatic, the subtle, all of them), and natural beauty and dynamics. With a pinch of humour, this is my recipe for perfect wedding photos. A picture is worth a thousand words. I hope my photos express it thousandfold stronger. If they, in any way, tickle your emotions, I’d love to hear from you!
