Founded by Jarar Kazmi, L'Atelier Lumière Photographie is a wedding photography team based in Ontario, Canada. With a roster of high-profile clientele, L'Atelier Lumière offers luxury wedding photography in Ontario and beyond. From ultra-glamorous engagement sessions to destination weddings in Santorini, L’Atelier Lumière consistently produces images filled with style and romance. We asked Jarar to share more about the team’s approach to luxury wedding photography and what couples can expect.

GO: How did you get started in photography and what compelled you to work within the wedding niche?

A: Our love for wedding photography and creative storytelling led us to pursue this passion. Given that our sister companies were already successful in the wedding industry, it felt like a natural fit to follow the same path.

GO: How would you describe your photography style?

A: Our photography style encapsulates timeless moments, showcasing the beauty in the raw and unscripted style, creating a storybook of memories that our clients can cherish for years to come.

GO: Do you pose and instruct couples on what to do during a photo session?

A: Our specialty lies in providing professional and creative direction that effectively captures the essence of our subjects. We take pride in ensuring that our couples feel at ease in front of the camera.

GO: What is your opinion on “trendy” poses? (ex: The bride and groom facing the camera straight-on and holding hands?)

A: Every event is a unique opportunity for us to create a bespoke experience. Our approach is to tailor each wedding to our clients' preferences, which allows us to produce content that truly reflects their vision. While we do include some posed shots, we strive to capture the majority of our photos in a natural and organic manner.

GO: What are your favorite moments to capture during the wedding day?

A: We absolutely love capturing the bride and groom getting ready, as it is a significant moment during the wedding day. Additionally, we specialize in taking epic post-wedding creative shots. However, one of our favorite moments to capture is an intimate first look between the couple.

GO: How far in advance should a couple reach out to you if they wish to book you for their wedding?

A: We recommend booking with us 1-2 years in advance. However, should you not be planning this far ahead, please do contact us to see if your date is still available.

GO: What advice do you have for couples who are searching for a wedding photographer?

A: Having great chemistry with your photography team is an important key to picking a photographer. Your photographer must also provide you with comprehensive coverage of all your events.

GO: Aside from luxury weddings, are there any other types of photography you enjoy?

A: Whether its engagement shoots, bridal showers, or epic destinations, creatives. We enjoy capturing all our client’s milestone events.
