“Chris Luk’s photos are incredibly artistic. We booked him a year in advance to take photos on our wedding day, and he quickly contacted us to review our timeline and see what we envisioned. Booking him from the U.S., where we worked, our time in Toronto was very limited, but Chris worked with our rigid schedules and had great recommendations for locations in the city for both our engagement and wedding day photo shoots. Chris takes his job very seriously and the result is gorgeous photos.

He also goes above and beyond and contacted us about a contest to win day-of wedding coordination. I immediately enrolled, and we ended up winning the contest, which was such a blessing and helped me, my husband, our parents, and our wedding party have more time to enjoy the day.

All our guests are amazed at our photos, and we continue to get a multitude of compliments on how beautiful our photos are. I’m glad we chose Chris as our photographer!”

“We really enjoyed having Chris as our photographer- he was not only extremely professional, but also very personable. We appreciated that he made an effort to get to know us and our background story before even taking any photos, and we were even more impressed when he remembered some of those little details from out [sic] first meeting! Chris’ photos are beautiful and he is talented in his ability to document memories. We really liked his use of lighting and colours from the first time we saw his pictures, and he has now provided us with beautiful wedding memories that we can cherish and look back on. He was very flexible with our needs and had a good balance of directing us with his expertise while also taking into consideration what we wanted in the photos. When communicating, Chris was always prompt and efficient; we never had to wonder what was going on! Overall, we had a very positive experience with Chris. Chris, thank you again for being such a special part of our day!!”

“We found Chris online and while we have never met or worked with him before, we felt at ease and trusted him with our family session as he was very engaged in getting to know us. Not only did he respond promptly to my emails (patiently answering my many questions), but he took the extra step to scout out locations to ensure that we would be able to capture exactly what we wanted. I would definitely recommend Chris and hope to have him photograph our family again.”

“My wife Keren and I knew from the moment we saw Chris Luk’s website and photo gallery that we wanted him to do our engagement and wedding. His work is absolutely stunning and we were not disappointed! Having these photos in our hands right now makes us so glad about our decision to hire him. Without a doubt, if you’re looking for amazing memorable photos, he is the photographer to go to!”

Personal:
Besides the standard first-meet of your photographer, Chris spends the extra time to get to know us, and get the details of our dating and proposal stories. He did a write up of our story along with our Engagement Photos, and it served as a communication piece to all our friends and family. Chris tries to understand the unique chemistry that’s between each couple, and to capture that in his photography. He’s always friendly and approachable so that we can tell him, sometimes in gory detail, of what we wanted. I doubt all photographers would take note of such details, but he sat with us pre-wedding day, to work through our schedule together, giving us helpful suggestions, and taking note of the complex transitions that might occur during our wedding day. We were well-versed in, when he and his assistant photographer would show up, and what would happen throughout that day.

Capturing the “Chemistry”:
Most of our engagement photos were used as a collage at our wedding. They were all of printable quality, with good resolution and framed nicely for printing purposes. Our pictures were not the standard posed photos. Chris captured us looking very natural and comfortable, and definitely the essence of who we are. We didn’t hire a videographer, so Chris’ photos are all the memories we’ve got and can depend on! My parents were giving a speech, and we have three photos that caught their goofy expressions telling an embarrassing joke about me, then followed my reaction. His pictures immediately brought back the memories of that moment. My parents were in the foreground and I was in the background on a higher stage, and the third photo captured our eye-to-eye connection in conversation.

Good Command of the Crowd:
For the formal family and friends portrait session, have you ever thought to yourself: “shouldn’t someone say something or give some direction”? We never had this moment during our portrait session because Chris had a very good control of the crowd and was very in touch with time. If someone’s not in view of the shot, or someone’s in the way, Chris would be sure to voice it in a polite manner and gave clear instructions for people to follow. He ensured that all the photos were taken in an orderly and timely fashion. Hassle free choice, hands down!”

“We looked through many photographers’ websites/portfolios before choosing Chris for our engagement and wedding photos. We liked how his pictures focus more on the couple than the surroundings and how there’s a very uplifting happy vibe about his photography.

Chris was very professional, quick to get back to you, and offers a lot of good advice should you have any questions throughout the wedding planning process. It was nice to have someone experienced to refer to if you don’t have a wedding planner.

Chris was very attentive to detail. My parents really appreciated that during the group photos, he made sure everyone had their hands in the right place and looking their best before taking the shot. We were also amazed how beautiful the dinner photos turned out as it was in exceptionally low lighting!

All in all, we loved our photos and the experience Chris gave us. Thanks Chris!”

“Christopher Luk photographed our wedding on June 22, 2013 in Toronto at the Estates of Sunnybrook. He also captured our Engagement Session.

He is extremely professional and cares about his clients and gets to know their families too. He is very attentive and responds quickly to all emails and goes out of his way to ensure that he captures the most of your special day.

I looked at many different photographers before choosing Chris. There’s something about the way his photos come to life that I didn’t see in any of the other photographers I met with. I also didn’t feel any pressure from Chris to sign a contract, and I found that he was so much friendlier and so much more passionate about his work and wholly believes in marriage and the commitment two people make when entering into marriage, which was really important to me – to know that I wasn’t simply just a customer to him. I didn’t get this feeling from other people I did meet when looking for a photographer.

On top of that, my husband and I were grateful for all of Chris’s sage advice throughout the wedding planning process as well!

On our wedding day (and our engagement session) he never made us feel uncomfortable as being in front of the camera can be a bit scary! He made me and my husband feel so at ease!

I am really glad I went with Chris, as my photos are absolutely stunning and I love them!

From Chris, I didn’t just get a photographer – but a friend :)”

“We just looked through ALL the photos… and they are bloody fantastic. ALL OF THEM…” / “You are an amazing photographer and we are so happy we chose you to be part of our day! We loved your direction and assistance in posing for the photos and how much care you put into making sure everything went right.”

“My wife and I had our wedding over 2 years ago and we still look at the wedding and engagement photos! Going with Chris was a great decision for our wedding.

My wife has always liked Chris’s photography, so it was an easy choice for our wedding. One of the things Theresa and I appreciated was the way that Chris reflects the character of the couple in the shots. Our engagement and wedding shoot really captured who we were as a couple and the feel of our wedding.

We’re so pleased with our wedding photos and Chris truly takes care in making sure every shot looks great. His friendliness and professionalism really make him great to work with on the big day.”

“Chris – the photos are amazing. As Walter and I were going through the photos it made me miss our wedding day. But I know if we were to do it all over again it wouldn’t be the same. Thank you so much for capturing all the moments of our special day. I especially love the candid ones of our guests partying!” / “Thank you Chris for such a great job capturing these moments for us forever.” / “Chris really captured really great moments from our engagement shoot and wedding. We mostly loved the candid shots he took of our family and loved how he made everyone feel comfortable.”
