Great, now what? Well, you need a celebrant and 2 witnesses – that covers the basics. Fun Fact, Phil was once a witness at a wedding that he was shooting.

Now if you want to make a fun party for your close family and friends, you suddenly add so much to that list of ‘must-haves’. The list becomes longer the more people you have and the selection of available vendors (suppliers) gets smaller. In Montreal, Laval and South Shore – not all caterer can handle feeding 500 people, most halls have headcount restrictions and not all photographers can place family groups of 50 people at a time.

Now, you are planning a celebration of your love?

It may feel difficult to find a photographer for a wedding. Going through countless websites, Facebook pages and reviews can get exhausting.

The choice is really yours, we would just like to give you a few pointers to make that choice as educated as possible!
