We didn’t have it in our budget for a professional videographer, but one thing we did make sure of, is to have a fantastic photographer. Long before we had booked Erika and Ryan; an experienced and dynamic duo, I had been looking at photographs of weddings in Muskoka. I have to say that it is their photos of Windermere House that first got us interested in that particular venue. In actual fact, it probably wouldn’t matter where or what Erika and Ryan are photographing; all the photo’s they have on their website have a beautiful and emotive quality to them. A lightness that I wanted for our wedding. From the start, the emails we received were disarmingly friendly yet professional. They were definitely quick to respond to emails, and paid attention to even the smallest details. On the day of the wedding, there was quite a big storm brewing. Our ceremony took place under the cover or some angry-looking clouds (luckily with some peeks of sunshine). Immediately after the ceremony and a few brief photo’s, the wind whipped up and rain came down so quickly and heavily. Always on the ball, Erika and Ryan were able to find a few places for us to take our group photo’s (so we actually had a good variety of backgrounds), and when the rain eased up, we went down to the docks to take more shots. While they suggested and photographed a few ‘staged’ poses for us, they also took photo’s of those joyful in-between moments, when my husband and I were just playing around, being ourselves. These, I’ll always treasure. I had been worried that with the lack of sunshine and blue skies, that our photo’s might end up a little ‘dull’. Those fears were quickly eased when we received our photo’s from Erika and Ryan, not long after the wedding. I was so happy to see that the lighting was perfect. The photo’s were beautiful, with a journalistic style that sets this pair apart from others.
We wanted beautiful wedding photos that captured the day and our personalities. A "typical" photographer was not going to cut it. We loved the photo-journalistic style of some of their pics, and the sense of humour infused into others. They made the groom (who is camera shy) comfortable. From our engagement shoot to our wedding day pics we felt like we were heard, and were understood.
Absolutely stunning!!!!! It was such a pleasure having you there capturing our day, and you did it like no one else ever could! You were so professional and made both John and I so very comfortable in front of the camera. Thank you SO SO much for everything!!!!
Where to begin? Thank you so much for your dedication to our wedding photos (as evidenced by your early arrival on the wedding day due to rain!) and your amazing and artistic creativity (as evidenced by the beautiful photos in our wedding slideshow). Thank you especially for being so terrific and easy to work with - everyone should be so lucky to feel so comfortable & happy with their wedding photographers! We cannot wait to have an excuse to work with you again sometime!! Thanks again for everything.
Rowell photography went above and beyond our expectations during our small wedding in Bermuda. At first we weren't going to have a photographer but after many people told me that it was something I'd regret later in life, I reluctantly agreed to have one and I'm so happy that I changed my mind. They supported us during the entire experience and took some amazing photos that we will cherish forever. Thanks Rowell photography!
