Not too long ago, I was also in your shoes planning my own wedding.
The process was definitely overwhelming, so I know how you’re feeling right now.
So, how did photography enter the picture (no pun intended)?
This directly inspired the Brian Ly Photography Experience to let you be fully present in the moment, intentionally capturing real moments of your authenticity and connection with one another.
The wedding planning checklist started to pile up. Then came time for searching for our wedding photographer.
All these thoughts started running through our minds like not wanting to feel awkward and fake. We wanted photographs that documented real, authentic emotion, showcasing our connection, while being able to fully experience our wedding day with our closest family and friends.
Little did we know that wedding photography would be one of our top priorities, since we didn't want to worry if our once in a lifetime memories would be captured beautifully or not.
Since marrying my high school sweetheart, Diana, our family has grown into four! We have two fluff balls full of personality, Charlie the Shih Tzu and Yeti the Samoyed (IG: @yeti.thesamoyed, original, I know)! We try to stay active, are huge Toronto Raptors fans, have a passion for travelling, and are always finding new places to eat! I'm always down for food. Hit me up with your favourite restaurant recommendations in Durham Region!
Well, it all started as a 13-year old kid... breaking photographs hung on our living room wall! Sounds weird, I know; my brother and I would always play baseball in our living room and smashed many wall frames - let's just say my mom was never impressed! But it began with the stories she would share about each photo that we broke.
The passion grew to taking a media arts class in high school where I made my first pin-hole camera and developed photographs in those dark-red light rooms. I then borrowed my parents’ digital camera to make (cringey) YouTube videos. Years later, I finally bought my first "real" camera and realized the value of capturing moments through photography – the value of capturing unforgettable moments in your life, serving as an interruption in your day-to-day to bring you back to what really matters.
Eventually we found the perfect wedding photographer!
It was the biggest sigh of relief to know that our wedding day would be documented beautifully by a photographer that connected with us and understood our values!
