Azure Blue Photo + Cinema has an instantly recognizable wedding style, which is born of the combined experience of our award winning team of photographers/cinematographers and continued development of new post production techniques. Our style is the perfect balance between candid and documentary. Azure Blue fashions a personal photography/cinematography style which is based upon customers’ ideas and preferences. We give direction when needed and are always ready to capture the impromptu moments.
Azure Blue Photo+Cinema was founded in 2005. We will take care of you on the big day, help you plan your time and locations, and create beautiful images for you on your wedding day. We are here for you before, during and after.

We are approaching 2000 weddings at Azure Blue, but we remember all of them in one way or another. Once you are a client, you become part of the family.
How many photos do you take at a wedding?
Once all of the images are edited, you will receive 1000 to 1500 images that are ready for printing, depending on the length of the day and the number of guests. Being able to choose from a wide variety of shots helps to create an unique album filled with wonderful photos.

Your USB of photos will contain high-res JPEGs.Depending on your cinema package the footage can be edited into chapters of ceremony, reception and speeches. All RAW files are property of Azure Blue Photo & Cinema and are not given to clients.

We offer a wide range of albums that can be seen in our showroom.

Do you travel?
We will travel as far as you desire for a small additional fee.

Are you obtrusive photographers and cinematographers?
Most definitely NOT! We wear all black and are always mindful that your wedding day is for your family, friends and guests. You will never catch us blocking the ring exchange or distracting your guests. We give direction where needed, especially during family photos. But mostly we try to blend into the background.
What type of gear do you use? Are there always 2 photographers?
Each of our photographers carries 2 professional DSLR cameras, multiple professional lenses, lighting and much more. Our cinematographers carry the latest DSLR and audio equipment and shoot in 1080p. There are always two photographers for photo and at least two videographers for cinema.
What are your prices?
We provide a variety of photo and cinema packages that can be customized to fit your wedding perfectly.
How are the photos/video edited?
Our post production team edits all photos for colour, exposure and crop. Special edits such as removing objects, adding colour finishes and skin smoothing are done for print only.
Cinema is a creative storytelling feature edited to music of your choice and the best parts of your guests’ speeches.
