Ajay Thomas Photography is the trusted photographer for large venue weddings, intimate elopements, and any wedding event in between. Based in the Greater Vancouver and Sea to Sky areas, I specialize in ceremonies and events inspired by the natural environment surrounding us. Since 2010, couples in British Columbia have relied on me to capture the day two families come together.
Photography coverage on the wedding day begins in the morning, with the bridal party and groomsmen getting ready separately. Classic images of the bride’s mother helping the bride into her dress and the maid of honor helping the bride into her shoes are the little moments my team and I will capture.
Some clients opt to do a first look before the ceremony. I find that this is a nice time for couples to take a moment to slow down and center themselves amidst the chaos of the wedding day. This is also an ideal time to do formal wedding portraits (both candid and formally posed) and group shots, including the wedding party and the family for both sides, separately and together. Doing these large group photographs ahead of the ceremony gives newlyweds more time to enjoy the reception and ensures everyone is looking their best. If you choose to do the formal group photos after the ceremony, that is no problem, but we may have less time.
Whether the ceremony is a simple exchange of vows surrounded by nature, a modern industrial gathering, or traditional religious service, I’ll photograph every tear and smile. I capture a variety of images that illustrate the love and support from family and friends as they surround the bride and groom as witnesses to their union.
After the wedding service, it’s time to party. The wedding reception is the most fun part of the day, where guests let loose and toast the happy couple. Newlyweds share their first dance and memorable moments during parent dances, usually the groom with his mother and bride with her father. Maid of honor and best man speeches often shed light on how the bride and groom met, in addition to humorous personal anecdotes. Once dinner and speeches are out of the way, and the dancing begins, I’ll be right in the middle of the floor, snapping pictures of the wedding celebration.
With a keen eye for the beauty all around us, I pride myself on capturing the unique connection between people, which at its heart, is what a wedding day is truly about.
From the walk down the aisle until the dancing at the end of the night, I will be there to document your big day. Many couples in the Greater Vancouver and Sea to Sky Area have trusted Ajay Thomas Photography on their wedding day and have loved the resulting photos.
