My name is Chris and I am a full-time wedding, portrait, & event photographer based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
A bit about me:
I laugh too loudly too often!
My foot naturally taps with the music.
I proudly call myself a geek and a nerd.
I drink too much freshly squeezed orange juice for my own good.
Why am I a wedding photographer?
My faith has a lot to do with it.
Christopher Luk is a wedding, lifestyle, and event photographer based in Toronto whose signature “hands-on documentary” style is full of life and joy. He has a unique ability to encapsulate meaningful, heartwarming, and emotional storytelling of sentimental moments in an artistic way. Chris has a passion not only for weddings, but for seeing marriages succeed, and relationships endure for a lifetime. He loves spending time with his wife and son; being a foodie and delicious food consumer; and satisfying his guitar and audio & video gear acquisition syndrome.
I love how weddings (and engagements) are the joining together of, not only 2 people, but of 2 families, and Vannessa & Daniel’s traditional Asian tea ceremony engagement celebration was very much the visual representation of that unity filled with joy, respect, and warm embraces. There was an amazing combination and representation of various Asian cultures and languages from Chinese, Indonesian, and Vietnamese — of course, the most important part was all the delicious food! ;)
Congratulations, Vannessa and Daniel! I’m definitely looking forward to celebrating with you both in October :)
P.S. Isn’t Vannessa’s red dress absolutely stunning?
Annie and Jason have now been together for an amazing 11 years! A mutual friend introduced them to each other online and they got to know each other over MSN Messenger (remember that?!). When they finally met face-to-face, they decided to sit and talk on a park bench near TooGood Pond, on the north side of Main Street Unionville (which made it the perfect place of significance to do their engagement session). Eight years later, Jason proposed to his best friend as they were arriving home from dinner where they celebrated their anniversary.
Looking forward to celebrating with them in October at The Angus Glen Golf Club! :)
It’s funny how different the atmosphere is when getting ready in the morning between the groomsmen and the bridesmaids: the men were calm, quiet, and collected; on the flip side, the ladies were lively, loud, and animated!
Since Shauna and Charles both met each other while in medical school, we were surrounded by a multitude of doctors all day and, luckily, there were no medical emergencies that needed tending to :) Plus, even though thunderstorms and rain was in the forecast, it held out, and the worst we experienced was a very light temporary drizzle as we left Thornhill for Richmond Hill.
The most memorable part of the night for me was the “copy cat” kissing game where Shauna went way above and beyond the call of duty! The demonstration kiss that they were supposed to copy was for Charles to be lying on the floor flat on his back and for Shauna to do a single push up to kiss her husband. They copied the example perfectly … and Shauna added in a couple of jumping push ups to really seal the deal!
Congratulations, Shauna and Charles!
P.S. This is one of the biggest diamonds I have ever seen!
