Livingface Photography showcases the lenswork of me, Toronto Wedding & Portrait Photographer, Bard Azima. Honesty, Simplicity & Beauty are the mandates. Utilizing a fluid combination of photojournalistic and traditional styles I will deliver images that you will cherish forever.

Words that describe the Livingface experience and product: personal, striking, engaging, honest, simple, evocative, fun, timeless...

Please visit www.livingface.com to view the Wedding Portfolio and for additional information.

One of the services I provide - which is pretty unique in the industry - is that by the night after your wedding I'll put up about 25 teaser pix from your wedding on the blog, which is exciting for you, your friends and family to see so soon after the wedding. Here are a couple of sample links:

http://www.livingface.com/blog/index.php/wedding-photography-toronto/the-wedding-of-dorota-jason/

Please also view the video slideshows below. The first one is a short teaser slideshow. The other two are the slideshows that were delivered to the client, incorporating five songs of their choosing. The slideshow is a wonderful encapsulation of the entire day incorporating approximately 200 of the roughly 600 pictures you will receive in a typical 10 hour day.

Also, I was recently interviewed by Matt Galloway on CBC Radio One's 'Metro Morning'. You can listen to that interview here - https://clyp.it/ru5kpgpl.

That's it for now :)

To book an appointment please call Bard at (416) 732-1904 or send an email to bard@livingface.com. Looking forward to hearing from you. Read less

We engaged Bard as the photographer for our wedding in November 2015. We chose him because his style of event photography was exactly what we were looking for: the ability to capture events and its participants in the most natural way as well as to create more formal images made his work stand apart. Bard was extremely professional in his conduct and a real pleasure to deal with before, during and after the wedding. His presence at the event was almost unnoticeable while he was capturing beautiful and natural moments of our celebration. The final product, a selection of best photos and a slideshow to the music of our choice, was beautifully prepared on time via a link that we could share with our guests, as well as on DVDs. Bard's work was highly praised by all the recipients of our wedding pictures. We recommend Bard with confidence.

We love BARD!!! He is absolutely an amazing photographer, and we couldn't be happier with our wedding pictures - we truly love them all. Bard is very professional and kind. He's got a great sense of humour and he really listens to the needs of his clients. We felt so at ease with him, as did our wedding party and families, and at the end of the day our pictures were exactly what we had hoped for, if not more. He knows how to capture those little candid moments that you didn't even know existed, and he truly makes the best out of any situation. Bard is absolutely the best, and we will definitely work with him again.

From the very first time we spoke to Bard we knew we were in good hands. He was extremely professional, organized and easy to get along with. He knew all the best places to get photographs in and around our venue and made our day go so smoothly. He was unobtrusive and blended in with the wedding to the point he felt like one of the guests. We will definitely be recommending Bard to all of our friends and family.

I wish I could rate this Bard Azima or Livingface Photography a big fat 0! My husband and I went to go see Bard for a consultation, and at first glance he seemed very professional and creative, This is where it all started...I had my engagement shoot, when I got the pictures back, I was not really satisfied with them as there was no creativity in them at all, literally just corny pictures with no thought in them. I had expressed this to Bard via email. He asked me to call him, so I did and he gave me a huge lecture on why the pictures are good, and basically how I SHOULD NOT HAVE THESE OPINIONS; it was from there I realized that this man does not like constructive criticism. He agreed to do another engagement shoot with us, so we went ahead. I got the pictures back, and was satisfied with them, did not really expect anything more. However, there was something I wanted him to edit, which again, he got upset at me for saying "this is not a magazine shoot, and no one will notice that!" THEY ARE MY PICTURES THAT I AM PAYING YOU FOR!!!!!! After giving me a hard time about that as well, he said he would get a lady LOL to edit what I had requested. Now the wedding day came, first off he initially refused to take pictures of my family and I , however, after my in laws and husband talked to him, we took family pictures, but at the time of him taking them he was annoyed and rushed. To end this, I got my pictures back, and I just want to say he is a horrible photographer, he does not know how to cue the bride or anyone, his pictures are old fashioned, and he cannot edit himself, there were water stains on my Mom's shirt, I brought it up to him, he was got angry once again, said it can't be perfect, and said he has to get a PROFESSIONAL to edit it, but it would cost me more money...HE IS HORRIBLE!

Livingface Photography responded with the following comments:

Sad to see this review. Unfortunately, while Kaazmi is a lovely person her and her husband ended up being the most high maintenance and unreasonable weddings clients I have worked with. There is no point responding to the specific allegations because it is now done and I have no desire to get into a back and forth. For all 3 photo sessions (2 engagement, 1 wedding) instead of appreciating the fine pictures they received they found something minor to focus on instead of the pix they received. In 15 years of business this was the first and only time I retook Engagement pix (at no extra charge). You are welcome to evaluating these sessions for yourself. To view them do the following: (1) go to www.livingface.com. Enter ‘main site’. (2) Click on the CLIENTS tab (3) enter: ka&wa-wedding (4) enter: k&w-engage (5) enter: k&w-engage2. Please note that once you view one gallery you’ll have to leave the site completely and return before inputting the next code. My goal always is to provide the best possible pictures and experience possible. For my own sanity I had to stop responding to this client, which clearly has upset them even further. However, I feel confident that they have received excellent pictures - which unfortunately they have had a difficult time appreciating because they insist on focusing on things that the vast majority of people would not notice or care about. I hope that their perspective on their pix will change over time. After all, she "LOVED them!" when she saw them. Here is the email exchange where I sent her the online gallery and she responded.

Bard was an amazing wedding photographer! He was willing to customize the day to what we wanted and even walked around downtown with us to take lot's of outdoor snowy pictures on a chilly January day. Then throughout the wedding he was very unobtrusive and out of sight, but in seeing the pictures he clearly captured all of the fun and joy of the day! I am very happy with the decision of going with Bard/Livingface for our photography,

We cannot do justice to how lucky we are to have had Bard be our photographer for our wedding and the events leading up to it. Besides having great taste, being flexible with us- and with the weather!, and producing top notch quality, Bard is a great person to meet. His attitude, professionalism, organization, and commitment were unmatched. We fully trusted him and with good reason because he knew exactly what he was doing and how to do it. We're still surprised at how his photos were exactly what we were looking for (and more) and yet how we never worried about the photography once we met him. He has a knack for taking the thinking out of it, making it fun, and letting the final product speak for itself. It's no surprise how many of our friends have asked about him after seeing the myriad of engagement shoot pics we had on display at the wedding. Definitely one of the best decisions we've made!

Thank you M&M for your lovely review. The 4 Seasons Engagement Sessions were a first and because of who you are it was a lot of fun. Not sure what I'm going to do not that I won't be seeing you every few months! Peace and love :)
