On a summer weekend I had the pleasure to photograph two weddings at Atlantis Pavilions.
The biggest challenge for me when photographing the same location, in this case Atlantis Pavilions is to come up with different shots so that the wedding photos of the couples don't look the same. While that could prove difficult, in case of Atlantis, it is not that difficult as the place is peppered with gems that can be used creatively if your wedding photographer has the eye and the creativity for such things.
This wedding photo was taken on the rooftop and I tried to combine elements of architecture, angle and a bonus, the flying wedding bouquet to create this image.
Would this be an award winning wedding photograph? I am not sure about that, but I can tell you I have never seen such image before. The couple loved it and it was included in their wedding album. I love it as well.
Hong and Rob are such a sweet couple I would do anything for them! They trusted me 100% ...just imagine seeing your wedding photographer dropping on the ground face up to take this wedding picture :-). My photographer partner at one moment climber on a high pole to get a different vantage point...it worked!!!!
If you intend to have your wedding at Atlantis Pavilions, I applaud your intention. Atlantis is a fine venue with unique architectural elements. While it can use some face lifts, its unique character and geometry makes it a photographer's dream. The Toronto skyline view is just breathtaking from there! Just visit during the evening and imagine how your wedding photography will look like there.
One thing to keep in mind is that the venue can and will run two weddings at once, so it is not uncommon to meet another bridal party there. In fact, once I met another wedding photographer a good friend of mine who was photographing at the same time. Funny things can happen at Atlantis Toronto.
This photo features Atlantis Banquet Hall, a superb venue in downtown Toronto.
