KNOW

The man behind

the dad jokes

 

Hi, I'm Vince.

You're about to commit to spend the rest of your life with someone. But first, you have to commit to spend a whole day with someone else: your photographer. And not just any day: your wedding day. You will spend more time with your photographer on your wedding than just about anybody else. That's why it's so important to find someone you connect with and feel comfortable around.

I've shot weddings for 12+ years. At first, the fascination was around the artistry and the geekery that permeates the world of photography. And lets be honest, there is still a big rush when you get that perfect shot staring back at you from the camera screen. But mostly, shooting weddings has become a people thing for me. I have met so many great people, shared so many laughs, and witnessed so many great moments. And yes, I've been that guy crying during the wedding speeches of people who were complete strangers not long before.

I hope to get to know you soon.

My wife took this photo. Maybe you should consider hiring her instead.

It all started in 1987 when an adorable baby was born. Unfortunately, this child soon developed myopia and was forced to endure a style of oversized glasses which would not become popular until 2017, at which point he had already paid for laser eye surgery.

After his breakthrough novel, "The Spy" didn't garnish its intended success, the young Vincent soon started looking for a new hustle. As he hit high school, digital photography was just beginning to be a "thing" and he started taking photos and videos of everything that moved.

Vincent took the photos for his sister's wedding, which set him on a path towards international stardom as a wedding photographer (he's still working on it). This was the era where colour isolation editing was THE BOMB.

Vincent finished a Bachelor of Fine Arts (grad project in the background here) but focused on painting and didn't actually study photography beyond taking lame selfies like this one. Following this, he established a fledgling wedding photography business.

As Vincent's business grew, he somehow became a wannabe hipster, started drinking mochas and got into obscure board games. Occasionally, he even buttoned his top button.

Vincent became a father to a beautiful daughter with severe developmental delays and autism. While this meant a drastic reduction of board game time, he has been madly in love with her since Day 1.

Vincent is now father to three kids 4-years old and under. What this means is that no matter how crazy your wedding day may be, compared to bathtime at Vincent's house, it will feel like a slow-motion stroll in the park with Chopin playing wistfully in the background. 

The story picks up from here when

we begin to work together.
