Toronto Wedding Photographer – GTA

As a top Toronto wedding photographer, my couples look for unique and creative wedding photos, as well as natural and candid pictures. At Raph Nogal Photography, I provide beautiful, dramatic, award-winning images, time and again and provide an experience that puts clients first.

Unique and Creative

I provide artistic photographs. One of the things that makes my photography unique is that is inspired by fashion. I love incorporating the editorial feel of fashion magazines into my wedding photography.

Candid Photos and Authentic Moments

The moments on a wedding day cannot be re-done. As an experienced photographer, I know the importance of candid photos and making sure those natural moments are captured. As one of Toronto’s leading wedding photographers, I make sure to be at the right place and at the right time to capture those candid, photojournalistic pictures.

Looking for a Wedding Photographer ?

Would you like an amazing experience and stunning images?

I know these images mean a lot to you, but I can assure you they will mean even more to you after the wedding. Would you like to look natural? Would you like to look your best? Would you want great images of your family, friends and loved ones? Would you like it to be fun? Enjoyable?

If you answered YES to the above, let's get together at my studio so I can show you how I can make sure you not only get the best images, but also an amazing and fun experience.


Reviews From Clients

Honest reviews from clients say a lot about a business and how those clients felt about their experience. With plenty of reviews from realy clients on Google, WeddingWire and The Knot, I am grateful for such kind words and feedback. Hearing how my couples have appreciated my service is why I do this.

Your experience with me is very important: from the first correspondence, through the planning stages, to the big day itself. After the wedding day, I help create and commemorate the most important day of your life in the form of a beautiful Fine Art Wedding Album.

Ultimately, I want to build trust and comfort with you. I want you to be comfortable in front of the camera and for you to allow me into your world. I want to make sure you're looking your best, but even more importantly, I want to photograph who you are and not just what you look like.

Editorial Wedding Photographer

If you are looking for a photographer who creates more than just pretty pictures, Raph Nogal Photography delivers out-of-the-box, edgy images. Your pictures will stand out against the cookie-cutter poses on your friends’ Facebook profiles. 

I work with a variety of techniques using off-camera flash, video lights, and reflectors to produce vibrant, dramatic images with a high-fashion, editorial flair.

Same Sex Marriage in Toronto 

Raph Nogal Photography has had the privilege of photographing many LGBTQ weddings over the years. I celebrate love in every form: after all, that’s what our whole job is about, right?

I specialize in photographing same-sex and gay weddings, showcasing your story with timeless images. 

International Award Winning Studio

I strive for greatness, but not only to push ourselves creatively, but more importantly for our clients. I participate in international image and album competitions and are involved in the industry to observe current trends and styles and go against the grain and create something different.

Luxury Weddings in Toronto

Every ceremony is different but, like our clients, every single one is special, too. For some, special isn’t enough. Our studio works with and captures high-end experiences. 

From grand venues to luxury brand vendors, these events are a combination of sophisticated taste and intense planning. Your vision deserves just as much attention as you. 

Our luxury services promise to capture the very best of you and every exquisite detail that goes into your big day.

Fine-Art Wedding Photography

Art is subjective – that’s what makes it so special. We all see something different. Using my Visual Arts background and experience, I’m able to envision a photo before it’s ever taken. 

Having that creative and artistic instinct and vision, while being conscious of the finer details, is what makes me one of the most reputable fine-art wedding photographers in the city of Toronto and beyond.

Pre-Wedding Photography, Engagement Photos & Day-After Sessions

Originating in Asia, pre-wedding sessions are becoming more popular in North America. This is a great opportunity to photograph the bride and groom in their formal attire or traditional dress before the official day. This means more chances for pictures, without the time constraints, location restrictions and weather uncertainty looming.

Day-after sessions are similar, but are instead done after the actual wedding day. This gives the couple another opportunity for a stylized shoot, where we can incorporate a theme, mood, or a specific location, in a more relaxed environment.

Engagement sessions are our favourite way to develop a working relationship with our clients. I highly encourage every couple to do an engagement shoot to build comfort and trust with their photographer. In addition to getting some great shots, you can provide feedback and see firsthand how I work.

Destination Weddings

I are fortunate to travel to incredible places for destination wedding photoshoots. Oliver and I take on a very limited number of destination wedding per year and are selective in our locations. 

I have photographed in Mexico, Las Vegas, Thailand, Dominican Republic and Honduras. Contact us for details on custom destination photo packages.

Investment and Pricing

As you probably know, prices of wedding photography in Toronto can be all over the place. Finding that perfect fit may seem challenging. I want to make pricing easy to understand, but also offer value to my clients. 

For this reason, I provide pricing up front and on my website. However, I highly recommend meeting at the studio with my clients as I am able to explain my services and make sure you get the entire clear picture of what I offer and the experience you can expect. We can also provide some basic pricing information by phone (647-295-6495) or email. This way, I ensure to answer all your questions and give you an accurate price with no confusion.

My Mission and Promise To You

I want my wedding couples to have an incredible experience on their wedding day. I want them to enjoy their time with family and friends, immerse themselves in the emotion of the day and I want them to have an incredibly time - while simultaneously being photographed to preserve the memories to be shared for generations to come, while shining their brightest and looking their best...
