First of all, I’m high-fiving you for your recent engagement and I’m SOO glad you’re considering us as your wedding photographers!
Now that you’ve crossed-off choosing your wedding venue, planner and your wedding photographers (us ;)) from your list, you’re probably wondering the next steps.
Over the past 13 years, we’ve had the pleasure to photograph hundreds of heartwarming weddings and beautiful love stories, and we are here to hold your hand for every step of the way.
Here’s the breakdown of the signature MANGO experience and why we are consistently voted as the Best Wedding Photographers in Toronto:
- Meet-and-Greet At The Initial Consultation
We know that you put a lot of hard work and thought into your wedding planning, and choosing the perfect photographers for your Big Day is of paramount importance. You should not only feel confident in their ability to take flawless photographs, but also feel at ease with the person who’s going to spend the majority of your day with you and your loved ones.
That is why we invite you into our studio too meet us in person and get to know us a little better. You’ll get to see the behind-the-scenes and every-day hard work that goes into creating those Pinterest-worthy wedding pictures. You will also get to meet our tight-knit team of photographers, graphic designers, retouchers and album designers – all the people who are there to make your images flawless. These people are responsible for making MANGO STUDIOS rank as the top Wedding Photographers in Toronto, Miami, and many of the international markets we work in.
- Getting To Know Your Story
Once you meet the team, we will sit down with you to go over your wedding day plans over a cup or two of our signature MANGO tea! We believe a strong relationship is a foundation for incredible photography. We accomplish our unique approach to visual storytelling through this fundamental method of getting to know YOU first. Driven from understanding your unique story, personal style, design interests to musical tastes and the places you like to travel.
Once we know your preferences and style, we will be able to show you what we can do for YOU and how we can best tell the unique story of your wedding day. Our photography coordinator will come up with an approximate timeline that you can share with your other vendors and explain how the wedding day is going to unfold. While planning a wedding might be something new to you, we have been creating timelines for the past 13 years! Lean on us when it comes to making decisions about the photo locations, schedules and more. Our team is here to walk you through the whole process.
- Pairing You Up With A Mango Photographer
Once all the formal documents are signed and the deal is sealed, we will pair you up with one of our awesome wedding photographers.
How do we pick your photographer?
We have found that working with your Mango photography coordinator is the BEST way to choose the RIGHT photographer for you. We’re a small team, so when you meet us you will review all the available photographers’ portfolios. You can choose a photographer or allow your event coordinator to pair up the right photographer with you.
Each photographer has their own unique personality, but we all share the same vision and approach to wedding photography. So often the pairing is based on a personality fit.
When you hire MANGO, you’re guaranteed the best team in the business. This approach has worked for us for the past 13 years. We’re ranked as the top photography studio because of our tireless pursuit of the highest quality photography. We achieve this through the magic of teamwork!
- Engagement Session
Your relationship with us is so important to your story that we highly encourage you to get to know your photographer in advance of the wedding. Engagement sessions are the best way to accomplish this. You will not only get to know your wedding photographer better but will also learn your best angles and get comfortable in front of the camera. Treat your engagement session like a fun date with your partner, and I guarantee you’ll have a great time 🙂
- Wedding Day!!!
We are creators of elegant, editorial-style and magazine-worthy wedding photographs. Each image is made with a striking balance of creative attention to detail and our signature photojournalistic style. While focusing on great portraiture, we also appreciate all of the in-between moments. The moments you forget all of the noise, the moments that are not forced or posed.
On your wedding day, you’ll find us gently guiding you into a pose as opposed to full-on directing. We love the moments that arise organically when two people come together to celebrate their love, and we do everything in our power to beautifully capture the raw, genuine emotions from your wedding day in your photographs.
- The Grand Reveal And Fine Art Pieces
After the wedding, we create a very special presentation at the studio where we share what we captured and let you relive your wedding day in our state of the art presentation theater. We love it when our couples bring their family along and we get to meet them one more time.
Hands down, this is one of our favorite parts of the whole process! This is when we remember the day. We remember the people. We remember why all of this matters. There’s nothing more rewarding to see our work spark a smile or tears of joy and bring so much happiness! This is when we also realize that our work has grown into something bigger than us because it’s about making people happier doing what we love to do.
And as the icing on the cake, we’ll share the incredibly well-designed album and print options that we believe help tell a beautiful story of your day and act as stunning heirlooms to pass for generations to come.
I hope this blog post helps you better envision what we, Mango Studios stand for. We can’t wait to add you to the Mango Family and looking forward to your wedding!
