On WeddingWire since 2023
Last update: November 2023
Hi everyone, I’m a photographer and videographer based out of Southwestern Ontario. I’ve spent the last few years documenting fashion during New York, London, Milan, and Paris fashion weeks for various brands and publications. Clients and shows have included Coach, Vogue, Roksanda, Carolina Herrera, Salvatore Ferragamo, Alberta Ferretti, Tod’s, Sport Max and many more. Check out my commercial work at josephalberta dot com.
Between my adventures I love shooting weddings! I’m interested in approaching weddings with the same style, energy, and techniques I use during fashion jobs. So if you love fashion, have an eye for detail, and are willing to put up with a little extra effort to make sure your photos are top notch, please hit me up!
I typically shoot 10 to 12 hours for a full wedding and capture both parties getting ready, the ceremony, family portraits, wedding party portraits, bride and groom portraits, cocktail hour, and the reception.
My basic package only includes my services for the wedding. While I'm excellent at bouncing between parties in the morning as well as capturing everything throughout the day by myself, I strongly recommend adding a second shooter for a small additional fee. Having two photographers will make for a much smoother time for everyone involved. Each party getting ready in the morning can have their own photographer and then we all meet up during the ceremony. No one has to rush in the morning for the sake of photos! Honestly, this is the way to go. And having two photographers during the ceremony means you get pictures of the bride walking down the aisle as well as the groom's priceless reaction! The wedding is possible to shoot with one photographer, but a camera might jam, I might get distracted, or I might just straight up not realize something fun is happening because I’m somewhere else. Second shooters are a lifeline for everyone!
I've shot nearly 40 weddings and am great at rounding up groups and taking charge when it's time to get the photos done. We can work together on capturing everything you want or you can just tell me to make it all happen and follow my lead. My style is certainly more candid with a few posed shots sprinkled in. This means I'll probably ask you to walk and talk to each other while I shoot rather than asking you to hold a posed forehead-to-forehead type of shot for 5 minutes! Check out my portfolio and you'll see what I mean. I'm very flexible with my work and don't want to stress anyone out so you'll never offend me if you want to move on from an idea.
Please contact me if you're interested, I'd love to chat about capturing your big day! I shoot video too if you're interested :)
I’m also willing to travel!
