About Topher + Rae Studios
Topher & Rae Studios is a business based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. It became a full time business for Topher and Rae in the January of 2014. While Topher loves to capture the candid moments, Rae focuses on creating authentic and artistic portraits of their clients. Together, they create contemporary images that have a nostalgic feel to them. Topher and Rae first get to know their clients and build relationships with them so that they become comfortable in front of the camera. Together, they create images that are memorable and share a passion for genuine relationships. Their photography style is a blend of storytelling documentary and authentic portraiture styles. They are open to travel all over the world. Topher has travelled the world with his camera for 15 years for work and also for the sheer love of it. He has also worked for two news publications as a photojournalist. Rae, on the other hand, developed an interest in photography from her love for drawing the human form. She combined photography, sketching, and poetry to create an art that brings out the uniqueness in her subjects. The company's work has been featured on Marry Me Lnk, Off to Wed, and more. Both the photographers are members of Fearless Photographers.

Topher & Rae are great pair to spend your wedding day with. They are very relaxed, and really easy to get along with. Plus, they take fantastic wedding photos. My wife and I are very happy with the set of photographs that we have received from them.
The price of their service for the day is exceptionally reasonable when compared to other photographers in HRM. I think we were lucky that they were available to do our wedding at such short notice, too. That they were miraculously unbooked only two months out was lucky for us. There was some worry that we wouldn't end up with a talented photographer, but these two are exceptionally talented. We have so many stellar shots that we're really not sure how to pick just one or two to showcase in our home. Plus, they were very accommodating with our request to customize a package based on our needs, which didn't really match up with those that they offered on their website.
Overall, we had a wonderful experience with Topher and Rae. We couldn't have been happier with everything they did for us.

I need to preface this post by saying that my fiancee absolutely HATES having his photo taken, and I hate boring typical photos that anyone can take with any old iPhone camera. Also, my sister is quite gifted with photography so I hated the idea of paying someone else to do my photos (she can't do it as she's my maid of honour). So, with all that being said, needless to say, neither of us were thrilled at the idea of hiring photographers.
Well... that feeling immediately changed after our first meeting with Topher and Rae. We felt completely comfortable with them. They are very down to earth, funny and pretty much open to anything. My jaded feeling was quickly put to ease and although my fiancee still hated the idea of having his photo taken, he didn't feel as much dread as he did before. So the first meeting was awesome. Fast forward to the next contact....engagement photos.
Yet again, neither of us really wanted engagement photos done. Again, my fiancee didn't want any more excuses to get his photo taken and I just personally never really cared for the idea. But again, Rae had the BEST ideas for en engagement session completely related to Christmas. This was amazing for me because I am a Christmas fanatic. So again, I went from hating the idea of engagement photos and not wanting to get it done, to being BEYOND excited and even telling others why it was important to get engagement photos done.
We recently had the engagement photos done. It was a lot of fun and wasn't as uncomfortable as we thought it might be and, of course, T&R had fantastic ideas for some cool shots. But the best part.. my fiancee looked great and actually loved the photos. I've never heard him say anything positive about himself in any photo before. To hear him be happy about a photo of himself was worth every penny!
Now we can't WAIT for our wedding photos! I would definitely recommend Topher and Rae to anyone!

Topher and Rae have been absolutely amazing. As someone who generally doesn't enjoy taking pictures its amazing how comfortable and fun our engagement shoot was. They really seem to care not only about the finished product but about the people they're working with. Can't wait for the finished product

Topher and Rae were absolutely fantastic. The photos were amazing, and furthermore, they went above and beyond our expectations in other aspects, as well. They were super helpful throughout the wedding planning process. I have only positive things to say about our experience with these photographers and would recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat!

We met Topher & Rae in the early stages of planning our wedding and immediately fell in love! Neither I nor my husband had ever been photographed before and were a little nervous about what the experience would be like. Topher & Rae’s fun but equally as professional demeanor made the experience a blast and something we’ll never forget. Our engagement photos were a great combination of romantic, playful, and creative, and not once did we feel intimidated about sharing own ideas or suggestions.
We also had our wedding guest book made by Topher & Rae which was elegantly lined with fully edited photos from our engagement session. We’ve received so many positive comments from our guests about the guest book both during and after our wedding.
For the wedding day itself, Topher arrived at the crack of dawn to a vintage barber with my husband and his groomsmen for photos. Meanwhile, Rae was with me and my bridesmaids/family taking photos of us while getting ready. Without leaving for a minute, Topher & Rae photographed our entire day, including all of our pre-wedding plans, the ceremony, the wedding party photos, the reception, and the dance/party (they were among the last to leave!). My husband and I could tell that on our wedding day, there was genuinely nothing more important to Topher & Rae than capturing every moment of our wedding.
It’s difficult to express our full sincerity in words, but my husband and I (and our families) couldn’t have been happier with choosing Topher & Rae to be a part of our wedding. The quality of their work is breathtaking and you couldn’t meet two more down to earth people; we’ve gained two new friends along the way.
