New Winnipeg Wedding Photographer Testimonial

No matter what anybody says - it is and will remain a great feeling when someone values your skills and appreciates your efforts and tells the world about it.

I am lucky to receive these, humbled and honoured.

"Bond was referred to us by a local photographer that was already booked on our date. As soon as we saw Bond's website, we knew he would be a great fit for us. We could not be happier with our experience! Bond made us feel at ease and brought out our true selves on film.  He has a great eye for composition, and was able to capture some wonderful candid moments. We have so many great photos to choose from. We highly recommend Blf Studios hands down. Bond is AMAZING. We were very fortunate to have been introduced to him, and even luckier that he was more than willing to travel to our wedding in Kenora, Ontario. A new location did not seem to phase him - he found great backdrops for all of our photos, and was able to accommodate flawlessly for our venue aboard the M.S Kenora.  Our friends and family keep raving about our photos. Thank you Bond for everything! You are wonderful, well rounded, funny and genuine. A great addition to our wedding day." Janelle + Les

"We are so fortunate we were able to have Bond and Leah join us on our wedding day. We had an amazing time at both the connection session and our big day. They took us to great spots that we never would have expected and the photos turned out absolutely wonderful. They were great and went above and beyond to ensure that we had the best experience possible. They made the experience natural, fun, and special as they captured all the laughs, tears, and precious memories that we can cherish through our albums for the rest of our lives. From the both of us, we'd like to thank you both for all your hard work and dedication to beautifully preserving our special day for us." Jess and Tim

"To choose a wedding photographer is truly a difficult task. They have 1 day, 1 chance to capture those moments that will be so dear to you for years to come. During our wedding planning, Brent and disagreed on one thing- picking a photographer. We had different expectations and wanted different things. Until we met Bond. Meeting Bond was the solution we had been looking for. Brent clicked with Bond right away, and I knew instantly that I trusted him with the task of capturing our day. As time went by, a few months before our wedding, I found out I was very ill and we need to postpone until I was better. It was such a hard decision, but Bond was completely supportive and accommodating. As our wedding day approached, I shared some personal concerns/issues that I had, as he assured me that I would be fine. I have never in my life LOVED all the pictures that someone has taken of me- but Bond managed to do it. He has a professionalism about him but can also be personal too. His ideas are so unique that peoples all over are still commenting on how extraordinary our pictures are. We also had the pleasure of meeting his brother-in-law Shawn on our wedding day and what a treat. Shawn was so warm and kind, and both he and Bond handled my crazy wedding party like a charm. When I look at our wedding pictures, I am instantly brought back to that day and am reminded of how much fun we all had. Bond- thank you so much for capturing the moments of our day so well. We have memories to last us a lifetime and we can’t wait to have you be a part of more moments as our life together unfolds." Janelle and Brent

Wedding on the MS Kenora in Kenora, Ontario

Leah, Zuri and I headed out on a little adventure a couple of weeks back to Kenora, Ontario.  I had Janelle and Les' wedding on the MS Kenora and my girls had a great time walking around and discovering the ins and outs of lake country.

When Janelle told me their wedding was gonna be on a boat - SNL came to mind.  How awesome to have your wedding on a boat. We could not have asked for better weather as the day started at Janelle's uncle's cottages.  Stunning properties and the ideal place to start the wedding day story.

The ceremony took place on the MS Kenora, anchored as they had to sign the wedding contract on land, and as we cruised around for an hour or so after the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktail style dinner and drinks.  The sun setting, delicious food, amazing scenery, beautiful speeches and rocking vibes from the Big City All Star Band.

A great memory for me and I hope the images can take them back to that day for many years to come.

Winnipeg Art Gallery Wedding with Courtney and Dan

I was laughing and enjoying Courtney's countdowns to her big day by posting an image from our Connection Session on the social media sites.  It was great to see my photos of them featured, but even greater to see how excited she was to marry her Dan!

These two are so perfect.  Gentle, kind, genuine people. Two people at the beginning of a great adventure, burning with motivation, to make their journey a great one. Inspirational!

I feel very proud of this wedding, I think we got some amazing images, but I am feeling proud because I was able to capture (not knowing) - two photos showing the the first moment these two saw each other at Lindsay and Jude's wedding a couple of years ago. 

Cupid at work! Dan as a groomsman walking down the aisle working his magic...

Nikita + Andrew's stunning wedding at the Millennium Centre, Winnipeg

I am happy to feature Nikita and Andrew's wedding today.  I really got to know this couple as I documented their rehearsal as well. They used their Connection Session for this coverage - as Andrew took Nikita to Paris to propose... Yes - that true.

He organized a photographer to capture the proposal as well - and although the lead up to the question being asked was not all that smooth, it all fell into place when she said yes.

Look out for the wonderful details at their reception.

To add to this story, their ceremony was planned to be outdoors at the forks, overlooking the river. We all woke up to a forecast for rain right around the time ceremony was scheduled.  And although we all hoped it would not be - the clouds opened up and sent guests running for cover the minute Nikita was to walk down the aisle.  Nightmare you might think - maybe for 1 minute it was, but everyone laughed it off, moved on to the Millennium Centre and enjoyed a wonderful ceremony indoors.  It all worked out and they have a crazy story to tell.

Here are a few of my favourite frames.
