You Need to Ask Your Photographer?
Ask these questions from photographers you interview.
We will photograph your entire day in a journalistic style which means in the background with no interruptions or direction.

We also do formal family portraits and a mix of both guided and unposed bride and groom portraits.

I started out in photography shooting families and children and that experience alone has led me to be the wedding photographer I am today. The one who can capture your parents holding hands while you say your vows, the one who gets the photographs of your grandmother shedding a tear during the ceremony and I'm also the one who gets the laughter between your best girlfriends or the sweet kiss you give your daughter. I capture all the "in between" moments as well as the "shot list"
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes! We are a fully insured and a registered business.
Do you have experience shooting in different lighting situations?
Absolutely! Whatever lighting situation comes our way, we are prepared to handle it using the best equipment ready to handle natural low light and flash equipment to handle difficult lighting situations.
We have photographed entire getting ready photos in windowless rooms using only a video light...stunning.
We capture stunning night photos with video light and off camera flash.
We can create beautiful portraits in your venue with flash and video light if you run out of daylight.
We can manage any type of lighting situation and create gorgeous portraits anywhere.
How many photographers will be at my wedding?
All weddings are shot by Frances Morency as the primary photographer and image editor.
Frances also brings an assistant or second photographer to every wedding who will help with lighting, setups and general assistance carrying equipment and wrangling guests.
My assistant photographer may second shoot during ceremonies and cocktail hour for guest captures and second point of view.
What are associate photographers?
We have compiled an amazing team over the years and trusts the associate photographers to capture your wedding day as if Frances was there herself. But, if I'm unavailable for your wedding day rest assured your images are in great hands while I do all the custom editing and business communications. I will also schedule and shoot your engagement sessions.
What kind of equipment do you bring to a typical wedding?

Do you guarantee your presence at the actual wedding?
Yes! When you hire Frances Morency Photography you get Frances as the primary photographer. In the rare instance that I should become sick or unable to shoot, I guarantee a replacement shooter with the same shooting style and qualifications to fill in. We belong to a network of Wedding Photographers across the GTA so a capable replacement shooter is a phone call away. But remember, you get 2 photographers so you're always guaranteed to have 1 at your wedding if something happens to one of us.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes! You will receive a link to a private, online proofing gallery with print and gift ordering capability. No need to pass around proof books or small prints – just give your friends and family your link and they will be able to look at your photos in the comfort and convenience of their own homes. They can also order at their leisure and you don’t have to do a thing!
Do you charge hourly or a full day?
Our rates are based on half day, full day and per hour. So now you don't have to worry about paying for anything you don't want.
Additional coverage can be added at any time.
