About

Aperture Lane is a Toronto-based videography company serving brides in the GTA and beyond. They work with fun and classy couples that are serious about documenting their elegant wedding day so that they can be proud to share their story with generations to come

Approach
The Aperture Lane team has a warm and personable approach that allows them to connect with those present, which helps attendees to be comfortable in front of the lens and ultimately forget about the cameras.

Style
Aperture Lane films are not music videos; their films are
elegant and emotional pieces heavily driven by the natural story-telling of the event taken from the events of the day, your wedding vows and the speeches. In fact, their films have a style that has been referred to as organic, sentimental and romantic.

Ryan is very proud to offer a cinema service where he and his team will:

1) walk with you throughout the planning process

2) help you plan your itinerary and make suggestions to maximize your experience on the wedding day

3) be a fun and approachable vendor team during your day to help you feel at ease in front of the camera

4) blend in during the ceremony and reception to help maintain an authentic ambiance for you and your guests.

5) deliver you a film that contains the unique storytelling of your relationship and not just a glorified music video

Services offered
Apart from the wedding day coverage and the production of beautiful films, Aperture Lane also offers specialty wedding services, like engagement shoots, love story concept videos, same-day edits and more.

    Above and Beyond

    Working with Ryan and his team at Aperture Lane was one of the best decisions my wife and I made for our wedding! They are so warm, welcoming, friendly, inviting, and really just the best! My wife and I are a pretty awkward couple (we are not photogenic) so Ryan and his team would often give us tips to help and make us comfortable throughout the whole process. Also, we had a COVID wedding, and through all the last minute changes and inconveniences they stayed with us and made it work. They were very accommodating. My wife and I would recommend Aperture Lane to anyone and everyone in heartbeat!

    Aperture Lane's reply:

    Alphonse,
    Thank you so much for the super kind words! The last two years definitely changed the vision of the wedding but I'm glad to have worked with a great couple like you two!

    Aperture Lane Making It Happen In 2020

    Ryan and his crew were with us throughout our process of planning and having a wedding during Covid. They made the day memorable with their vision for how to capture the intimate moments to be remembered for years to come. They made it so you couldn’t tell it was a 3 person wedding- the mood, vibe, and personalities of my husband and I shine me through.

    Aperture Lane's reply:

    Ashley! Thank you for your kind words! We all made it happen despite COVID! Capturing you and Dan was a pleasure!

    A true talent !

    Having Ryan work on our wedding was truly a gift. His professionalism, high energy , and humour made the day, that much more fun and relaxing. What we appreciated most was his follow up prior to the wedding and the details. He got to know us as a couple and individuals, which translated to our photos effortlessly. He was able to capture special candid moments, upstaged and completely authentic. This meant everything to us. To have memories told in an organic story line. Whether, when the maid of honour whispering in my ear and making me laugh, or the groom breathing in deeply before my entrance. Ryan and his team have an intuition and experience that made our special day into memories that will last forever - especially with so many things happening all at once, I really needed this.
    Aperture Lane did a phenomenal job with our large family they were organized, patient and truly captured the best of all of us. I look at our photos from our wedding and reflect on how hiring Ryan was absolutely one of the best decisions we made. I recommend him to all our family, friends and to anyone who wants to have not only a day but a love story to share.

    Aperture Lane's reply:

    Wow! My heart is full! Thank you not only for the beautiful words, but for considering me to capture your wedding! Yours will always have a very special place in my heart!

    Ryan and crew were absolutely amazing from start to finish. He did a great job of putting us at ease whenever he was filming, and honestly, it was just a lot of fun with all the chatting and joking around! The final feature was just wonderful, and I'm so happy and proud to share the video with friends and family, especially those who could not be there at the wedding. Definitely recommended, and if ever we need videography services again, we know exactly who we'll be calling!

    Thanks, Emily! :) You guys rock!!

    Amazing from beginning to end

    My husband and I couldn't have asked for a better videographer! Ryan showed so much enthusiasm, professionalism, humour and expertise. The sneak peak video blew everyone away. We had guests that did not attend the wedding recommend Aperture Lane to others simply off of the sneak peak video. The full cinematic video went above and beyond our expectations. Ryan is now our family videographer we will look no where else when it comes to capturing our events! Thank you Ryan and the Aperture Lane team, you are all so talented and amazing. We look forward to our next event with you.

    Aperture Lane's reply:

    Thank you so much, Amina! You guys made it so fun for us. Looking forward to the next event! :D

    Fantastic Team!!!

    Aperture Lane is an absolutely excellent team and all the members are wonderful people. They were professional to work with every step of the way from our engagement shoot all the way to the wedding. Even during our big day with all the chaos that was around us, his team was always able to keep us calm and relaxed and produced some amazing footage of the whole event.
    Their beautiful vision, enthusiasm, and high energy led us to feel very at ease and comfortable even in front of camera. We were able to enjoy ourselves and focus on every single beautiful moment on our wedding and did not need to worry about anything. From their understanding of our needs, they added their authentic perspectives, which created an amazing work of art for us. Working with the beautiful people of Aperture Lane was the best decision that we made.

    Aperture Lane's reply:

    Renee, thank you so much! Going through your wedding process with you guys was such a blessing! I'm looking forward to seeing you guys grow, and I'm so happy you chose me and my team to create this keepsake for you guys!

    We love Aperture Lane!

    If you don’t think you need a videographer for your wedding, you should reconsider. This is exactly the situation we found ourselves in when planning our own wedding. In the end, we decided that we wanted to have a keepsake to remember our big day. The problem was, we decided very late. When we called Ryan and his team at Aperture Lane, we didn’t think we could get a videographer because it was so late. But Ryan stepped in, and not only did we get a videographer, we got the best videographer a couple could ask for.

    On the day of, he came in and became such an important part of our day. He eased everyone’s nerves with his humour and charm. He and his team were so much fun that they felt like a part of our wedding party. The best part is, they’re also incredibly talented. They captured each and every key moment without us even knowing they were there. Until we saw Ryan bust a move.

    But what about the video? The most important part. The day we received it, we couldn’t have been happier. We kept watching it over and over again. It filled us with so much happiness (and made us cry a lot of happy tears).

    We love Aperture Lane.

    Aperture Lane's reply:

    Nicole! Thank you so much! I'm soooo happy our paths crossed when they did. The way you guys took care of us and told your story throughout the day was a dream! Looking forward to staying in touch with you guys! :)

    Exceeded our Expectations

    We first met Ryan on Skype. We live in Shanghai, China and got married in Toronto, at La Maquette on August 11, 2018. From the moment we got an email response back from Ryan, we knew he was someone special. Before we agreed to hire Aperture Lane, Ryan suggested that he would love to informally meet us on Skype and discuss details and potential next steps. We thought this would be around a 10-minute conversation but ended up lasting almost an hour. He showed us that he truly cared about us (even though he did not know us) and wanted to capture and be a part of our wedding day. We were immediately drawn to his kind, passionate, humble and loving personality. Soon after we said yes to hiring him, he wanted to set up a date in the summer when we arrived back in Toronto to meet up in person. He was willing to meet us anywhere we desired and we ended up meeting him halfway at a Tim Hortons. The minute we sat down to discuss in full how our wedding day would look and what our vision was for the video, it was like we had been friends forever. Although we did not have many ideas, he was full of them. He took us through the process sharing multiple perspectives on what he and his team would be doing on the day and sharing his experiences from other occasions. He was calm, funny, witty and again his caring and loving personality shone through the entire time. Once we left that meeting, we knew we did the right thing by hiring him.
    On the wedding day, Ryan was easy to get in contact with and was accommodating to our every request. He was knowledgeable with his shots and his assistant Tristan also was a great addition to the day. When Ryan was with the bridal party on the morning of the day, he made the experience relaxing and he fit in like he was part of the family.
    Once we received our video in the time window that Ryan mentioned, all we could do was tear up! Our video is truly a magical souvenir to remind us of our wedding day. We have watched the video many times since its delivery and we will continue to be able to relive all the special moments. We are so grateful and beyond happy with the final product and Ryan’s professionalism and personality is like no other. We hope that everyone who reads this will hire Ryan and Aperture Lane. Thank you again Ryan and Tristan for everything and we hope to stay in touch! Maybe we can go for a beer this summer!!

    Aperture Lane's reply:

    You.. guys... rock! Thank you so much for having as a part of your day! Looking forward to staying in touch and following your globe-trotting adventures!

    Ryan is amazing. From his professional attitude to his attention to our needs, our wedding day was made even more special having him and his team around! About a week after our wedding he even sent us a "sneak peek" of our wedding, and reliving the day brought both my husband and I to tears. Thank you so much Aperture Lane for capturing our wedding!

Ryan
Ryan
Lead Creative

I am an event and wedding videographer. I truly believe that stories can change people’s lives. I never realized this conviction of mine until I found myself capturing milestone moments in the life of people in my spiritual community. This habit, however, started with myself, as my camera became an extension of me, preserving my own experiences so I could later connect with others. Videography is not a job for me - it’s a way of life

As a husband, father of twins, and an active member in my community, I understand how life’s moments can slip by. I slowly transitioned out of my language teaching career to pursue this new adventure of helping people preserve their significant moments. I combined training from world class videographers and my own aptitude for language to carefully craft meaningful keepsakes for my clients.

I take pride in being a videographer because I not only preserve visuals, but also the parts of life that are experienced with the ears. You, whether you believe it or not, can make an impact with your story, so I’m looking forward to discussing how I can capture yours. If it’s not your time to share with the world, then please follow Aperture Lane on social media and see how stories can bring us all together.

Andrea
Andrea
Videographer

I'm Andrea, the original “feminine touch” for our team here at Aperture Lane. I've been capturing moments since I was a kid. There’s nothing that warms my heart more than love, and what a great opportunity it is to be able to capture all that love through film! My favourite parts of the day are heartfelt chats with the parents of the couple, the appetizers during cocktail hour and watching the groom cry at the sight of his bride walking down the isle. My goal is to make you laugh, make you feel like movie stars, and leave you feeling like you’ve made a new friend at the end of the day.

Tristan
Tristan
Videographer / Photographer

I’m Tristan and I love everything to do with cameras. When I’m not chasing stories on my own or with Team Aperture Lane, I’m busy pursuing my degree in architecture. My journey as a videographer started by simply making short and funny films with my friends. From there, I fell in love with documenting stories and moments that I could look back on. My goal is to capture the moments in life that make us sit back and say, “life is great.”
My favourite parts of the day include the creative session, and hearing the vows. When I can afford to put down the camera, I do quality assurance of the hors d'oeuvres.
