Gillian & Alan's Small Wedding at Jonathan's Fine Dining, Oakville, Ontario

December 06, 2019  •  1 Comment

I've been on a bit of a small wedding kick lately, but I can't help but share some of these gems that Mike has captured over the last year. We're finding that more and more of our clients are coming to us with very low key, very intimate weddings and we absolutely love it. It's such an honour for Mike to be asked to be a part of such a small guest list. In Gillian and Alan's case, they knew they wanted a very low stress and quietly fun evening. Alan is a reserved kinda guy and they knew they needed the kind of photographer that would blend in easily with their guests. As passionate as Mike is (he can get kinda excited when he talks about wedding photography), he's super good at blending in at small events and people often forget he is even there - even when there are only 15 family members plus a stranger with a camera. It's part of the gift of a candid photographer and its something we really value about how we conduct ourselves on your big day. 

Gillian & Alan's wedding took place on a cold December evening in the very romantic Jonathan's Fine Dining in Oakville, Ontario. This venue is a cozy haven in the wintertime with wonderful rich dark wooden beams and low candlelight. In other words, its a cozy haven with a wonderful vibe but it's also a delightful challenge from a photography standpoint, which Mike was totally up for. 

Check out some of my favourite shots from this beautiful evening, Gillian & Alan were just beaming the whole night and it was so special. Enjoy!

Mike and his assistant Jessica did a wonderful job capturing those moments of our wedding that managed to slip away. The day goes by so fast and it is so wonderful having such amazing photographs to look back on for the rest of our lives. There were some incredible, artistic shots that Mike and Jess were able to get. I would highly recommend Zekar Photography for anyone that is looking for an amazing, organic experience. Mike and his wife, Kate, sat down with us prior to get a sense of what it was that we were searching for. I have to say that they nailed it! Thank you again for all of your hard work!
