How did you first get involved in the wedding industry?

Beautiful Life Studios began with an artist that loved to capture the beauty of couples and a partner who knew how to reach them. What started in Whitby, Ontario grew into three studios located in Toronto, Vancouver, and Miami with a team of very talented people that have contributed, and continue to contribute, to the expansion of Beautiful Life. It’s only the beginning.

What do you love most about your job?

This may sound cliché, but hands down, we LOVE, LOVE, LOVE our clients! Being part of someone’s wedding is extremely intimate and a huge responsibility. We get energized by building relationships with our couples and helping them plan for/understand what they want out of their photography and videography to create a flawless experience! Ultimately, this allows our artists to capture the most raw, authentic moments, and we adore seeing our clients light up after viewing their photos/videos. It makes the entire process all worth it!

What has been your most memorable client experience to date?

To be honest, we can’t pick just one! We have experienced everything from a small, intimate wedding in the middle of nature, to a high-end, luxurious event in the city. Each wedding has something unique and memorable.

What does your typical work day look like?

It really depends on the time of year and the day of the week, but we always start with coffee! From May to October, our weekends are filled with weddings and we get our teaser images/video trimming done during the week. We also meet with new clients, hold planning meetings with existing clients, and partake in the occasional table tennis tournament in our off-hours. Our days are action-packed and never the same twice!

From where do you draw your inspiration and ideas?

Our inspiration comes from everywhere – the chemistry between a couple, an environment, the weather, a candid emotion, a colour. It all plays a part in how our work is created. We are also big believers in expansion, so on occasion we look to other industry leaders to see the captivating work they are putting into the world. This inspires us to keep pushing boundaries when we pick up our cameras.

What is your current guilty pleasure?

As a team, we have many guilty pleasures. We love coffee, our studio fur babies, post-work brews/wine, bowling, watching “the game” at the studio, grabbing lunch, drinking bubble tea, and table tennis matches!

What’s next for you and your company?

Beautiful Life Studios continues to expand our wedding division, but we will have a new commercial and creative division launching soon! It’s pretty exciting that we will be bringing our same level of service and expertise to a variety of industries. Great things to come!
