WE'RE ZURRY & JENNY...YOUR TORONTO WEDDING & ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHERS.
We specialize in documentary wedding photography with a focus on connection and detail. We like to keep things fun and relaxed while capturing all of the love and happiness already present on your special day.
Our sweet spot lies in anything rustic, outdoors or achitecturally unique. Our couples tend to be slightly less traditional, very laid back and want to just have one big celebration with their loved ones which we absolutely adore.
WHO WE ARE...
We are friends with a 21st century story. We met on Instagram in 2015 and happened to notice we were both in the same city. Shortly after we were on mat leave around the same time and decided to meet up where we discovered we just happened to be on parallel points of our photographic journeys. The rest is pretty much history.
We built our separate family portrait businesses while helping each other out and decided to give weddings a try. It only took a few minutes at one wedding to realize we were onto something. Our visions for what we wanted to build were very much aligned and so it was a no-brainer to join forces and build up a wedding branch of our businesses together thus creating Willow & Birch.
It's also extremely important to note that we are an all inclusive business and welcome couples of ALL kinds. We don't care what your race, religion, gender, age, orientation, identification or anything else is. If you found someone you want to spend the rest of your life with and are in love, then that is all we care about!
Here are just a few more similarities between us:
-Our birthdays are in the same month, just 10 days apart.
-We love to craft, but struggle to find the time to make our Pinterest-worthy ideas come to life.
-Although both introverts, we never stop talking when we're together.
-We're addicted to coffee...but really, what parent isn't??
-We both probably lived on the west coast in a past life, because we love it so much.
And some differences:
-Zurry was born and raised in Toronto while Jenny was born and raised in Chicago.
-Jenny formerly worked as an Early Childhood Educator while Zurry is an accountant.
-Ummmmmmm....that's about it!

Can you elaborate a bit more on your style of photography? Yes, we call our style "moody light" in which we love using natural light as much as possible to help tell the story of the moments happening before our eyes. We love showcasing the raw emotion and important little details of the day while also portraying the joy and happiness in a light and ethereal manor. We love laughter, creative perspectives and authentic connection. We try and keep these at the heart of our photography to tell an overall cohesive story of your day when looking through your gallery and/or album which is why we consider ourselves "documentary-style" wedding photographers.
