Wedding celebrations are our first love and our passion. For these reasons and more, our award-winning photography is endorsed by some of Toronto's top wedding venues and event planners, some of whom have engaged us for their own weddings! We've also been featured in Wedding Bells, Luxe Mountain Weddings, Urban Style and other leading publications. We also love traveling with our clients to their favourite destinations for their i do's & trash the dress sessions.
Naturally we grow with our couples and become their family photographers capturing maternity, newborn, family, christenings, bar/bat mitzvahs and life's other beautiful moments.

We offer video coverage for any occasion and love to create and collaborate with our clients. Read less

It depends if they are smaller events. But on the day of weddings - Michael Raimi Studios is exclusive to them.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?

Doug and Kristina were great throughout the whole process. I am from the states so my schedule was always packed on my short trips to Toronto. They were very understanding and accommodated my schedule whenever they could. We felt very comfortable around them during our photo shoots, and at the wedding they presented themselves and treated family in a professional manner. And most importantly, the pictures turned out great!

Working with Kristina over the last year has been an absolute pleasure. She has seen us through this whole amazing process from our Engagement shoot, my dress fitting shoot with my mom and in the end our Big Day! Having her with me on our wedding day was a delight she fit right in and put me at ease. Our pictures were amazing, she captured all the special moments and more. We’ve been able to re live the day over and over not missing one detail of the day. I highly recommend her services! We now have a photographer for life and we cannot wait to use her services again to capture all our special moments in the years to come!

Thanks Kristina!

My wedding was a Destination Wedding to Laguna Beach in California. Although there are plenty of options for photographers locally, I really just wanted to work with someone that I could connect with personally prior to the wedding and know that I would have great after-care for the photos when I returned home. (something, unfortunately that you can't always guarantee when working with a vendor not in your own city of residence). I had also had the pleasure of working with the photographer (Doug) and booking him for my client's weddings. When he was available for my date, there was no question in my mind that he simply MUST photograph my wedding. Not only is he a gifted photographer, but a wonderful man. He was not just a vendor, but felt like a friend and guest at my wedding. The photos were STUNNING!!! Beyond what I could have ever imagined. A terrific guy, a wonderful company, stunning work - I highly recommend this studio!!!

I knew I wanted Sugartree to photograph our wedding once I saw the website, which by now has been updated and is even better than before! Kristina is an intuitive photographer, excellent at putting her subjects at ease and fading into the background to get those really great candid shots which are the heart of any photo album. Not only was it a pleasure to work with her, she provided us with truly beautiful, lasting memories of the best day of our lives!
