So you’ve said I do and popped the champagne, now what?!
Wedding photography doesn’t have to be complicated. We’ve been there, so we get it! In an effort to keep things simple, here are some answers to our most frequently asked questions:
Why should I choose M+M Photography?
Ok, Ok. While you may not ask us this question directly, we know you’re thinking it! We want your wedding photography to be just as much of an experience as your special day itself. Our discrete approach gives you the freedom to truly enjoy every second of your day while allowing us to capture those candid moments that make your wedding unique. With over a decade of experience, we can safely say we’ve cracked the code to knowing how to make everyone look and feel beautiful in front of the camera.
When you look at your wedding photos, they should effortlessly bring you back to the moment you said I do, cried during your friend’s speech, or tore up the dance floor until morning! Our goal is to deliver superior, fine art photography that you can’t wait to share and display.
The M+M Print Shop was recently established to provide clients with various design solutions. To further transform them into breathtaking art pieces you just can’t wait to hang on your wall. In addition to creating unique albums, we consult our clients on various customization options like sizing, editing treatments, as well as what would look great in a gallery wall or as a statement piece.
Wedding photos are a once-in-a-lifetime investment so they should be absolutely perfect. Your love story deserves to be celebrated and honoured in the form of awe-inspiring images!

Can you describe your style?
My approach to photography is both cinematic and candid. From a young age, I’ve been inspired by classic cinema and I try to recreate this sense of drama and beauty with each and every image. My style can also be described as photojournalistic with an editorial flare because while I love capturing those natural, unfiltered moments, I’m also inspired by moody, high fashion portraiture. This unique blend of intimacy and drama results in wedding photos that are akin to fine art and anything but ordinary.

What are your wedding photography fees?
Our 2018 fees start at $3200. Please visit our investment page for more information.
And of course, if you have any questions, please give us a call!
Are you available to shoot weddings outside of Ontario? If so, what are your travel costs?
Yes, we love to travel! In these cases, we provide a custom quote that’s based on the destination.
Do you offer engagement sessions?
All of our wedding packages include an engagement session. We think it’s vital for everyone to have an opportunity to see what working with us on your wedding day will be like. Plus, it’s the perfect time to test out your hair and makeup team and see how all of their work looks in your photos.
Do you work alone or do you shoot with a second photographer?
For weddings specifically I always work in teams of two, having our extended team of associate photographers there to ensure every detail is captured and every moment documented. There are no do-overs on your wedding day and I am diligent in ensuring that I have a second shooter so absolutely nothing is missed. A second photographer plays a pivotal role in telling the whole story. What’s also great is that a second shooter has the freedom to capture different perspectives, leaving you with a different aesthetic to choose from!
Does your wife Magy shoot with you?
Currently, Magy’s primary focus is all the fun business tasks that need to get done to keep this wheel turning. She is our official Socializer and ensures our social media platforms are always updated with our latest work. She manages all the marketing and promotions and truly does anything and everything that needs to get done. And of course, she's also the Print Maker who sources the latest and greatest print products so that you are always getting the most superior products. Most importantly, she's my lead cheerleader and also my biggest critic. That being said, I work with incredible associate photographers so you can be assured you will get top quality photography that surpasses all your expectations.
Do you edit all of your photographs?
Absolutely! Every photo you’ll receive has been edited, one-by-one to give it the attention it deserves. Magy’s attention to detail is key here and she is part of this process along with me. She always goes above and beyond the standard to ensure your images are flawless. If she doesn't like something she is not afraid to tell me. Trust me.
How do you go about designing the wedding album with your clients?
We like to keep this process as simple and streamlined as possible for you so there are three main steps that go into creating your custom fine art album:
Do you also shoot video?
No, we do not shoot video, however we can provide you with our recommendation on some amazing videographers.
Just ask or visit our preferred vendor page :)
About how many photos do you deliver?
For weddings we normally deliver anywhere from 800 to 1000 images but this depends on the number of coverage hours you choose.
Do we receive the unedited/raw files too?
The unedited photos/files aren’t available for viewing or purchase. That’s simply because we go through a rigorous “culling” process which is a fancy term for photo selection. During this stage we select the best images based on our technical expertise (sharpness, exposure) and as well as the overall look of the image (facial expressions, open/closed eyes etc.)
Can some of our photos be delivered in both black & white and in colour?
Of course! During the editing phase we individually select images that we feel would look best in black and white. Typically our colour to black and white ratio is 80%/20%. However, if you have specific requests regarding colour treatment, we’d be happy to oblige!
How long will it take to receive our wedding photos and any other related products such as the album and prints?
We do our best to deliver our client’s wedding photos as quickly as possible. BUT, our main goal is to deliver outstanding, flawless images. That always comes first. Typically we require 6-8 weeks to deliver all of the images to you.
