INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture, Traditional / Posed
What do your packages include?
Albums, Digital Files, High Resolution Images, Prints, Proof CD of All Images
Do you have liability insurance?
No
How many photographers do you work with?
I have relationships with many local photographers that I know and have also worked with. I have a smaller network of photographers that I like to share business ideas with as well as jointly work on creative projects together. These relationships help me if I ever need a hand with anything or have a second photographer join me at a larger wedding.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes. I will be there. I can't miss a wedding for anything. If something extremely serious happened, I have a excellent network of photographers who would love to come and help me. My clients put their trust and faith into me and my business and I would do anything for them and be there.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
Never. One wedding per weekend. The other day is a day I spend with my family if I've been gone all day for the other day on the weekend.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Yes, I talked about before that I have a close network of photographers who produces work that I love. A good group of people who help each other out is important to have.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes. I use and have back-up gear and have it with me for all weddings. (Camera, multiple lenses and flashes)

Adrian is a wonderful and talented photographer! Throughput our engagement he was in contact with us to give us tips that were so helpful and listened to our concerns and what we wanted. On the day of our wedding he was so attentive and understanding and captured every picture we wanted! He was warm and accommodating for our family without interrupting or disturbing our wedding. In the end (after 2 short weeks!) Adrian gave us stunning pictures!

My husband and I cannot be more pleased with how everything turned out and we will definitely be asking for Adrian's services again. Thank-you so much Adrian!!!

One of the most important decisions in the planning of my step-daughter's wedding was selecting a photographer. We couldn't have put that task in the hands of a more capable and professional person. From the most incredible engagement photos to the beautiful moments he caught throughout the wedding day, Adrian's services were invaluable. He was an absolute joy to work with and I completely recommend his photograpy services. We cannot thank him enough for his dedication to capturing moments we will charish forever.

Adrian is an amazing photographer who truly loves what he does and you can see it in his work. Every shot he takes is a winner. I'm currently going through the mountain of photographs he took on the wedding day and it's hard to narrow down to which shots are my favourites because I love them all. You can't possibly find a more devoted, professional and creative photographer out there. His photos truly tell the story of our wedding day, the nervous moments, the stress, the love, the joy, just every emotion that occurred that day was captured. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer.

My Husband and I got married June 16, 2012. We had a fabulous day and we are so grateful to Adrian to have captured our happiness together. Adrian was fantastic. He was very attentive and always willing to listen to our opinions. He helped not only us but our wedding party and families to get the best pictures we could. He was always very patient considering we didn't have a whole lot of time between the ceremony and reception.
Not only was he great the day of but since the day we booked him he has been professional, punctual and courteous. We highly recommended him to anyone looking for a photographer. He offered very great value for the quality of work he provided.

I had been researching and speaking to photographers for quite a while before I found Black Sea Creative for our wedding. All of the other photographers did not seem to be as flexible or offer such amazing services at such a great price. When we first met with Adrian, we sat down and went over exactly what my husband and I wanted for our wedding pictures...to capture each moment as it happened. We decided that night we were going to book with Black Sea Creative. We had an engagement session which is highly recommended as it is a great way to get more comfortable in front of the camera, as well as comfortable with Adrian. When we received our edited wedding pictures not even 2 weeks after our wedding, we were amazed. They are absolutely perfect and looking through them brought us right back to each moment on our very special day. He was there beginning to end and even asked us if we wanted him to stay longer (which of course we did!). We have been told over and over again by our guests and from others that did not attend our wedding that our pictures look straight out of a bridal magazine. Adrian is very organized, punctual, and makes sure that you are happy. He captures all of your requested pictures and lets you add in your own personalities. We would 100% recommend Adrian and Black Sea Creative to anyone getting married who wants an amazing, professional photographer and beautiful pictures at an amazing price!

We used Black Sea Creative for Family photographs, not a wedding. Adrian was proactive about rescheduling due to weather and gave a few location options. He was very good with our two kids (aged 3 and 7) and this resulted in beautiful, natural pics. We're very happy.

We were very thrilled to have Black Sea Creative (Adrian) be our photographer. We had him do our engagement photographs which turned out AMAZING and decided that day that if he was available we would request him for our wedding.

As every bride know's your wedding day is not only filled with excitment but everyother emotion that comes along with it, nervousness, stress etc. Adrian not only captures those emotions but brings a sense of calmness and makes u remember that this is the day you have been waiting for your whole life, enjoy it. To me that meant a lot.

If you want a photographer that is professional, captures every moment, LISTENS to what YOU want, creative, and produces photos that every bride dreams of, then go with Black Sea Creative. I promise you wont regret it.

Thank you Adrian for making Karl and I's day everything we hoped for.

We had a long time to plan our wedding and I spent a lot of time visiting various wedding blogs and looking at beautiful wedding photos, and I knew that wedding photography was going to be one of the most important part of our wedding. We met with a number of photographers in Toronto, and shortlisted 2, Adrian being one of them. They are both very talented, and had great portfolios. I asked my husband which one of the two photographers he felt the most comfortable with, and he said Adrian right away. And so we made the great decision of hiring Adrian as our photographer.

From the first meeting, we could tell that Adrian is meticulous with details, extremely organized, and very talented. He captured us perfectly as a young and urban couple during our laid-back engagement shoot. Prior to the actual wedding day, I sent Adrian a long list of inspiration photos. Not only did he not object, he sent me an email back with very detailed notes about all the photos I sent him! He was always punctual, in fact, he arrived on our wedding day 2 hours early because he didn't want to get caught in traffic. He listened to our ideas and concerns, and was always very professional. We had just seen our wedding photos from Adrian and we couldn't be happier! He captured the day perfectly and exactly as how we had envisioned it. Thank you so much Adrian and we hope to work with you again in the future on a different occasion!

Reasons we went with Adrian:
* His photos. We checked out so many wedding photographers' portfolios that we were getting photo-fatigue! We had it narrowed down to a few options and asked a friend who's more experienced with photography to take a look, and he rated Adrian's portfolio the highest.

* His prices. Considering the quality of his work, I doubt you'll be able to find a better deal in the GTA.

We started out with an engagement photo shoot, in which he perfectly captured our quirky relationship and sense of humour. We didn't feel posed or artificial--it wasn't just another engagement shoot with a checklist of "must have" poses. We like that Adrian works with the couple rather than trying to fit each couple into the same mould.

We just saw our wedding pictures for the first time, and I'm so pleased with how they turned out. From getting ready to our first look at each other; from the serene ceremony to the wild reception, Adrian has preserved the highlights of us of our wedding.

Adrian is very punctual, responds quickly to all emails/phone calls, has a clear and fair contract, and goes the extra mile to make sure you're happy. On the day of the wedding, he was unobtrusive yet managed to keep his eye out for those unexpected moments--we got some beautiful candid shots. We would definitely recommend him.

Going into our wedding, we knew that we wanted the photographs to be incredible since they're something that we will have forever and Adrian surpassed our highest expectations.

We were planning our wedding in Toronto from Ottawa, and so we had to correspond with him fairly regularly and he was incredibly flexible and friendly, making him a joy to work with. He genuinely cared about us and about our wedding, leading to very natural poses and fantastic photos. I will be recommending him to anyone who asks.

He had a clear vision of what would make for gorgeous photos, but readily accepted and encouraged our input as well. He wanted us to help him make our photos more "us" and the result is personalized photos that have a distinctive and special flair to them.

Also important to note is that he sent us our wedding photos yesterday, fully polished and gorgeous, only 11 days after the wedding itself!

I can't compliment him enough. Thanks Adrian!

We couldn't have picked a better photographer to shoot our wedding. From the moment we met Adrian, we knew he was different than all the other photographers we talked with. He actually cared about capturing our wedding , and listened to our vision of how we wanted things. He used this information to make it into a reality.

On the wedding day Adrian not only photographed the moments, he also held it all together. In a professional manner he ensured that we stuck to our timeline and helped everything move smoothly, while keeping everyone calm and of course smiling!

The end result? Beautiful pictures that we will cherish forever. I would not hesitate to recommend Adrian to anyone in a heartbeat. I know that we will definitely use him in the future for our lives occasions.

My husband and I really enjoyed working with Adrian. He was always punctual, courteous and listen very closely to our ideas.

On the wedding day, he showed up early and stayed late. It was a very hectic day but Adrian seemed calm, collected and professional throughout the entire day. He put in 110% effort.

He has a great personality and I received many comments from our guests and family about how great he was - as a person and in how he photographed our wedding.

Our engagment and wedding pictures turned out much better than we could have ever expected. It was such an enjoyable experience to work with Adrian and I am happy that we made such a great choice!!

Black Sea Creative believes in capturing the moments as they are...no fake poses that make you feel uncomfortable...they draw out your personality and make the sessions fun (which helps when you're constantly smiling for 10-12 hours on your wedding day).

Adrian is a visionary and a passionate photographer...he was a delight to work with and we would love to work with him again someday!
