As a wedding photographer, I have a simple rule. If the couple pays for an element of decor, then I will need to photograph it. This is a picture of the sweetheart table at Kortright Centre. While this image will not win any awards, for the couple it is very important and they will look back decades from now and remember their beautiful wedding day.
As a Toronto wedding photographer I'm at several colleagues who think that taking decor photos or even family photos is beneath them. If you ask me, nothing is further from the truth. If an item is important to the bride, it is my duty as a professional photographer to document it to the best of my ability.
I remember the wedding I did a few years ago where the bride wanted need to photograph a medallion of her grandmother. She was kind of embarrassed to ask me for that favour but I was happy to oblige. To me, The Medallion symbolized the presence of the grandmother at the wedding and that is priceless.
Capture this image I used a 16mm F1.4 lens mounted on my Fuji xt3 camera. This is one of the last weddings where I used Fujifilm equipment. Honestly, I find Canon to be more reliable and for a wedding photographer that is very important. Canon and Fuji have similar colours and I often use them simultaneously. Sadly, I find Fuji images to be a bit softer while Cannon delivers ascertain sharpness that many photographers including me appreciate it.
