Dora + Cheuk-man Wedding |

by Kevin Lam

Toronto, Canada. 2013. Dora & Cheuk-man Wedding. (16)

I’ve always been enamoured by the elegance of Graydon Hall Manor. We looked into having our wedding reception there, but being a smaller and more intimate venue, it was unfortunately not possible with the size of our guest list. Over the years, I’ve returned many times to photograph weddings there and still think it is one of the more elegant and classic venues in Toronto.

Photographing Chinese weddings usually involve long and exhausting days. There is just so much going on from morning to night, and aside from the bridal party, we probably spend more time with the couple on the wedding day than anybody else. This definitely gives us an opportunity to really get to know them. The interactive nature of Chinese weddings also make for many photographable real moments that show us more about the couple’s personalities and relationships.

Cheuk is a wonderfully talented software developer, who has worked with some of the biggest tech names in the industry. For his wedding he developed an app which allowed guests to write messages and post live photos to streaming displays around the reception. This further allowed guests to interact with the live event using technology.

Their wedding was a mixture of classic elegance; traditional Chinese wedding rituals; with a touch of modern day tech. In other words, for Dora & Cheuk it was the perfect wedding for them.

Jenifer + Daniel Wedding |

by Kevin Lam

Toronto, Canada. 2012. Jenifer & Daniel Wedding. (26)

Jenifer & Daniel (also known as Uno by his friends) are wonderful together. Photographing their wedding day was everything I was expecting it to be, lots of fun! These two were set up by friends and what a perfect match they turned out to be. Uno mentioned in his wedding speech, that on one of their first dates he ate 125 mussels! Instead of being turned off, Jen was actually cheering him on. That’s when he realized she could be the one! :)

After their ceremony at Light Presbyterian Church in Mississauga, we headed over to the Toronto Centre for the Arts in the heart of North York.

Since there was still snow on the ground, it was a great location for us to shoot creative photos for Jenifer & Uno. This was my sort of photo location because it allowed me to use the architecture to create some dramatic images using creative lighting.

Their wedding reception was held at The Terrace in Vaughan. The night ended with a late night snack of McNuggets and Jamaican Meat Patties! I love the way these two think.

Thank you for trusting us to photograph your memorable wedding day.

Audrey + Evan Wedding |

by Kevin Lam

Toronto, Canada. 2012. Audrey & Evan Wedding. (38)

I first met Audrey & Evan nearly five years ago when they were guests at Carol & Brian’s wedding. Over the years, I kept seeing them at weddings that I was photographing. So many in fact that I counted a total of eight weddings! Sometimes they were guests and at other times they were in the bridal parties.

So when it came time for them to find a photographer for their own wedding day, it just seemed like a very natural fit. With so many of their friends’ weddings photographed by me, there was instant familiarity with how I worked. Additionally, having those 16 friends recommend us didn’t hurt either.

Audrey & Evan’s wedding was special for me and a wonderful way to end last year. Not only did I get to photograph a couple who have been following my work for most of my career, but it was a reunion of sorts with many of my past couples. It was great seeing so many familiar faces and catching up. Audrey & Evan are lucky to be surrounded by such a great group of people and it’s been an honour to photograph so many weddings among their group of friends.
