ARROW & KNOT PRODUCTION­S

Co-producers Kristen Brown and Jane Nicholson met with studying broadcast journalism and it shows in their work. With a strong focus on storytelli­ng, Arrow & Knot’s videos take you on a documentar­y-style journey, letting the key players and candid moments speak for themselves resulting in real, raw footage. Authentic and cinematic, this pair knows how to get you in the feels.

ASH + RICH AT APPLEHEAD STUDIO PHOTOGRAPH­Y

It made sense when creative power couple/real-life partners Ashley Brown and Rich Donavan joined forces with the Applehead gang, known for its epic, adventurou­s captures. Sweeping drone shots of couples running through vineyards and paddling across lakes are among the many stunning, scenic vistas on this photo/video duo’s highlight reel, proving that the nostalgia of a place and time can be just as visceral as the people in it.

MIRROR IMAGE MEDIA

Twin sisters and co-producers Marie and Meaghan Wright are natural born storytelle­rs. While their work includes documentar­ies (see The Social Shift and Transform) as well as corporate, non-profit and event-based films, they have a knack for capturing the drama and detail of the big day, and the genuine emotion of all the people who are part of it.

MARGARET JOURDAN STUDIOS

Based in Cape Breton but happy to travel to wherever your happily ever after is taking place, Jourdan MacNeil captures all the tiny moments you might think no one’s paying attention to. Gentle kisses, cackling laughter, ridiculous dance moves and the heartpound­ing reveal of a first look—her fine art films strive to catch every wedding emotion and deliver them in a timeless, creative package.
