Lucas T Photography in conversation : Capturing the real moments which help reflect the day’s authenticity at A Romantic Modern Airship37 Wedding
This wedding photography of Breanna and Rob has a relaxed and comfortable feel to it while still being highly stylized and romantic. How did they achieve this while capturing the essence of the day in your photographs?
The venue itself has a very minimalistic feel to it which really gives the decor a chance to come alive and have a life of its own. When I first came into the room the radiant colours and soft candles gave a feeling of love and warmth. It was a pleasure to shoot within it.
What was your main aspiration for the photography of this wedding day?
We approach every wedding differently. For this particular one we knew we would be working in one of Toronto’s heritage districts and so we wanted to represent that as much as possible in the photos.
Bisous Events beautifully styled Airship37 with shimmering lights and romantic candlelight combined with the natural light of the venue. How did you technically consider all these elements to get such detailed beautiful pictures?
As much as we think natural light is the best kind of light, there are numerous lighting factors that come into play at weddings. I always bring my own lighting equipment and use it to best compliment the mood and scene at hand.
You captured some beautiful wedding portraits that fully utilize the unique aspects of the day, what do you attribute to your success?
Having shot the number of weddings we have in the course of our career, we like to think we have achieved a sort of sixth-sense towards knowing how to not only technically achieve the shot but also to anticipate it.
The stunning photographs of the wedding details and decor do justice to all the careful planning of the day. Is this something that is a priority for you to document on a wedding day?
Details, details, details. Going into a wedding, we know exactly what brides like and those just happen to be some of the shots that really help to paint their story.
In photographing the wedding guests and family and wedding couple what are you hoping to capture?
Like most of our work, we like to capture real moments which help reflect the day’s authenticity.
When you first saw these pictures and looked at them what made you feel the happiest?
I love it when a wedding seems perfectly put together. From the getting ready portion of the day till the late night dancing, you can really see how all the talented vendors have contributed to this success of such an event.
How did you chose to have the audio from the wedding ceremony be the overlaying sound track for the video. It worked out beautifully as a means of connecting all the parts.
Audio is such a key component for any wedding video and one of the most rewarding parts of editing a wedding, for us, is to go through all the footage and find the moments where the story of the couple comes through. For Breanna and Rob, this was their ceremony. We thought the wedding officiant really encompassed the feeling of the day and that his speech would really resonate.
How do you communicate with your wedding couples to arrive at a final film you both love.
