New Photography Workshop Date Announced – March 15th!

Hello Everyone!

We’ve had such an amazing and incredibly positive response from our last Wedding Photography Workshop at The Estates of Sunnybrook we could not wait to post the details of our next one! This Workshop is going to be even bigger and better then the last. We will shoot on location at the Berkeley Church. Here’s a little bio on the church to give you an idea of what you will be shooting:

The Berkeley Church

The Berkeley Church was built in 1871, and operated as a church until the 1950’s. At that point it served as a film studio for several decades until 1999 when we began transforming it into one of Toronto’s most interesting event venues. Despite these reincarnations, the Berkeley Church has maintained a historical atmosphere. Architectural details like the original 17-foot stained glass windows maintain the church’s traditional ambiance.

Over the past 10 years we have been host to some of the biggest names in every industry. The stage recently has been a platform for top-secret events for Coldplay, Sam Roberts, Finger Eleven, Sloan and many more. The Berkeley Church is also host to major events for the Toronto Film Festival, and the corporate world from Fortune 500, Major Banks, and client entertainment for small business.

The church is also the perfect location for a wedding, where history meets modern decor.

The Church at Berkeley is approximately 10 000 square feet in total and boasts 100 ft ceilings with a flow between 4 main sections. We will have shooting access to the whole venue! The venue also features our signature Grand Arch Wall that can be lit dramatically for an amazing impact.

The Mezzanine level serves as the perfect location for a wedding ceremony.

As you move downstairs to the Circa 1871 Lounge & Garden Area it’s great for an intimate shooting location. The 140-year-old stonework has been the backdrop for many photo shoots and movie sets. It makes for a stunning area to host something small.

The Field House is our brand new venue space surrounded by windows looking out to our gorgeous gardens. The Field House also has a beautiful green roof deck overlooking the entire area and even though it’s chilly, it’ll still be a pretty spot to shoot!


We also have some fabulous models in attendance!

Vlada is on board and is a very talented and experienced model, very good at posing and giving you a lot of different looks to work with. She will be wearing a 2009 Capri Marie, Maggie Sottero wedding gown and will no doubt be absolutely stunning in every shot!

Eric & Angela are one of our “real couples” (see their Wedding & EShoot here). We shot their wedding last August at the Manor in Kettleby and they both looked gorgeous on their big day ๐Ÿ™‚ We’re stoked to shoot these guys again and we know they will give you some great shots.


We have some other gorgeous models TBA and will post them soon.

Last but not least we are incredibly excited to feature DWF’s Photographer of the Year, Johnny Tran! He’s flying down from Calgary to speak at our workshop and will provide you with some of the tips and tricks that have brought his photography to the next level!
