Creative Bride and Groom Portraits

Some people are fine with settling for posed, cookie-cutter wedding photography, but that’s not you. It’s not me either.

At Raph Nogal Photography, we believe every single wedding is special and you deserve the photos to match. My style is heavily influenced by fine-art, high-fashion imagery. I use an editorial and photojournalism-based approach to create bold, artistic images that you’ll be proud to display.

Bold, Creative Style

We create a bold and creative style. We do this through a combination of experience, instinct and lighting. I love using off-camera flash, video lights, and reflectors; it’s my calling card. These techniques help me to create the edgy, eye-catching photos that I’m known for.

Couples who choose to work with Raph Nogal Photography want that striking style. They appreciate the skill and instinct involved in photography, and they recognize something special when they see it. My goal is to deliver that quality in every photograph.

The creative aspect of my photos is what lends so well to print. Not digital files – we’re talking real, hardcopy prints. Photos you can touch and feel. Every image I take is crafted with print in mind, particularly the wedding album.

This means I aim to create pictures for displaying on your walls and for you to enjoy them, not just on the computer. I want you to be able to boast about your wedding photos with pride. Every single one should be a contender for your living room wall art.

In doing this, I give my couples wedding photos they can show off every time a guest comes over, instead of pulling them out of the closet once every three years. More important than your guests, my images give you a creative reminder of the most important day of your life.

My inspiration comes for many places. I love music and the moods and feelings it creates. Cinematic lighting is a huge inspiration in my lighting style. I often analyze motion pictures to see how certain scenes were lit. Various photographers inspire and influence me as well, such as my mentor Jerry Ghionis. His workshop I attended in 2012 changed the way I look at light and photography in general. I take these inspirations and transform them into my style, creating unique and artistic images my clients want.

Making the Most of Your Wedding Venue 

Oliver, my assistant/associate, and I have photographed in some incredible locations that make for perfect photography backdrops, such as The Fermenting Cellar in the Distillery District, the Omni King Edward Hotel, Steam Whistle Brewery Roundhouse, Evergreen Brickworks, Fairmont Royal York, Palais Royale, the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), Berkeley Church and Field House, One King West, Gladstone Hotel and many others.

Photographing in so many unique and stunning Toronto wedding venues has given us a lot of opportunity. We’ve seen so many different architectural elements and décor trends that we’re always kept on our toes. Every space is new and it gives us a chance to constantly think outside the box and be sponteneous.

It keeps the inspiration flowing to see new ideas every time we shoot a new couple. I’m truly blessed to share and nurture my creative vision with such incredible clients.
