If you want more than just "wedding photos" then go with Ted, every single shot has such true artistry and originality. Everything about Ted's photos is wonderful, we are SO in love with them! He is able to truly capture every aspect of the wedding from the little details to the overall aesthetic. We weren't completely sold on the cost of wedding photography until now, because so many people were telling us that they never look at their wedding photos, but I know I will look at them over and over for the rest of our lives! I got them a week ago and I think I have glanced at them at least five times a day. Ted is incredibly responsive and is able to improvise on the spot with whatever you give him to work with. He is also reasonably priced considering the quality and precision of the photos. I know we don't just have boring photos that will eventually go out of style, we have ART to proudly display on our walls!!! I 100% recommend The MOU Studio to anyone who wants some style and individuality incorporated into their photos.

Neither one of us lived in Calgary, so finding him was like finding a gem. We shared our vision and what we liked and didn't like and he was very accommodating. Our pictures were phenomenal!!! It was going to potentially be cold during our wedding in mid-October, so Ted lovingly reached out to me and told me that I may need to buy a nice white scarf/shawl to wear; how considerate! I would 100% have him take our pictures and would recommend him to everyone! He was also very affordable!

Ted was our photographer for our mini wedding this past July, where we encountered true Calgarian weather from sunny skies to thunderstorms and hail. Ted was absolutely amazing to work with from our initial meet and greet at his studio to receiving our final photos. He didn't forget to check in on us during COVID. He made sure we were ok with the weather we might encounter. He was incredibly professional and passionate throughout the whole process. You could tell how much he truly loved his job every step of the way. He even stood under pouring rain spouts to get the perfect pictures! The final photos we received were phenomenal and way beyond our already high expectations. To top it off we received all our photos in a very timely manner. The overall experience was worth every penny. Ted deserves way more than 5/5 stars and we would definitely recommend him to all our family and friends!

Ted is an amazing and professional photographer. I was worried that he is the only person who is taking photos on our wedding day and our wedding was not small, but he was everywhere and took so many beautiful photos on that day. When we got our photos from Ted, I felt like I am watching a video from our special day (We did not hire a videographer). He was able to catch every moment for us and our guests and I am so happy that I had him with us at our wedding. Thank you so much, Ted!!
Anthony + Jane
It’s an overwhelming task trying to find a photographer and Ted was by far one of the better decisions my wife and I made while planning our wedding. He’s a very genuine person and it definitely shows in his work. He has a real gift for catching the “moment”. Neither my wife nor I like staged photos or really love taking photos to begin with so Ted was honestly a blessing in disguise. He has a real gift for making people feel comfortable and is really good at giving direction. In all honesty we both forgot he was even around sometimes and if it wasn’t for the awesome photo evidence we wouldn’t even have known we had a photographer. He didn’t miss a single moment! We can’t recommend him enough!
Shannon + Brandon
Ted was our photographer for our wedding and engagement session and we wouldn't have it any other way! From the beginning, he was really interested in getting to know us better to represent us/our stories in our photos as best as possible. Throughout the 2 sessions, he showed that he is very dedicated to his craft, hard-working, and extremely easy to work with. He was professional in that he was always on time and had many ideas for how to capture our day vividly. He was flexible and accommodating to the location and our unpredictable puppy. He was very timely always in his responses. We now have many concrete memories for years to come, thanks to Ted! Thank you again, Ted, for all that you have done for us, we really appreciate it.
Katherine + Yang
Ted at The MOU Studio was absolutely perfect for our wedding! He was extremely organized, professional and prompt with all aspects of his service. Ted has a great eye for capturing unique photos and he really listened to our preferences. He also did a great job of keeping our wedding party on task while still having a ton of fun! He does the work of two photographers and we LOVE our photos.
Korina + Lee
Spend time with Ted to get to know his portfolio. After the initial meeting, he not only took down notes for what we wanted to see but also made sure the final product reflected our wishes.
Ted is very dedicated to his couples and goes above and beyond in order to ensure your special day is a memorable one. While his schedule is quite booked, he always found a way to ensure he worked on our schedule, not his.
After everything was set and done he still followed up with us in order to ensure we were satisfied with the end result.
Lastly, the only thing left to say is that Ted's pictures of our special day will be with our family for a lifetime.
Franca + Chris
I would definitely recommend the MOU Studio for any occasion! Ted was warm, professional and easy to work with. We met twice for a consultation, once with just me and once with my fiancé, and he really took the time to hear our vision and answer questions then and throughout the planning process. On the big day, it was fun and low pressure (something much appreciated on the wedding day!). I really like how the pictures turned out. We got exactly what we pictured, including all the "key" ceremony and reception moments perfectly captured. I now have too many favourites to put into just one collage. Thank you Ted for your amazing work and good energy!
Deanna + Myles
Words can not even express how happy I am with how our wedding photos turned out. Neither my husband nor I are very fond of being in front of a camera so we were a bit nervous about having to pose for so many photos. Ted made it quick, easy and really quite enjoyable! He did a masterful job of capturing our special day. I just love flipping through all the photos and feeling like I’m reliving my wedding day! I would recommend the MOU studio to anyone and everyone who are looking for someone to photograph any sort of special occasion. Thank you, Ted, for making the special day even more wonderful!
Dan + Viktoria
Ted is very professional and he did an amazing job as our wedding photographer!! He’s so good at capturing a couple’s candid moment without us feeling rushed or posing awkwardly. We’re also really impressed by how fast he was able to find the perfect angles/lighting of the venue considering it’s his first time at the venue and expresses our personality so vividly in the photos. Btw he’s also very responsive and super easy to work with. Highly recommend Ted for your photography needs, especially for couples!!
Emily + David
Ted was an amazing photographer to work with. He was very flexible with his time and provided us with very beautiful photos for both our engagement session and wedding day. I would recommend The MOU Studio to anyone.
Elizabeth + Phil
Ted is an absolutely stellar photographer. He did both our engagement photos and wedding photos. We initially planned to have a traditional wedding with family and friends but due to the pandemic, we were forced to change our plans and Ted was more than cooperative. We eloped and he happily took some of the best photos we've ever seen. They are romantic, thoughtful and above all, happy. We highly recommend Ted.
Arielle + Michael
We hired Ted to shoot our wedding. He is a warm-hearted and genuine guy but has a passion to capture the best pictures/moments. We were very happy with the results and received many compliments back on our wedding album. I will not hesitate to utilize Ted again for future life events and to recommend him to other friends and family.
Ivan + Caitlin
It was a pleasure to have The MOU Studio shoot our e-session and wedding. Ted is a very talented photographer and our pictures are amazing! He provided quality photos that truly captured the essence of our day. He was consistently professional, reliable and personable. I enjoyed Ted's online portfolio, but after meeting him I knew he had the personality we were looking for. We valued his friendliness and flexibility just as highly as the quality of the product and got more than what we paid for!
I am from Hong Kong and I was lucky to have Ted be my photographer. This was our first time taking pre-wedding photos overseas. Ted always replied quickly and gave us a lot of useful and great information and suggestion before the shooting. Ted picked us up at our hotel on the shooting day and it made our shooting very convenient and comfortable. Ted took us to a special and beautiful place for the shooting. The photos are excellent and romantic. I strongly recommend The MOU Studio to everyone who would like to take photos!
Jacky + Michelle
We had an engagement session with Ted in Vancouver, BC and he was awesome! The weather on our scheduled day turned out to be quite gloomy but we managed to get in some amazing shots during the "golden hour" before it started to rain. Ted was great at directing us to pose correctly to get the best shots. We were a little worried about how to pose and with his direction, we looked like naturals! You know, as if we really are in love with each other. Lol! All kidding aside, if you're looking for modern, romantic and beautiful shots, Ted is the guy you're looking for. The website is also wonderful to look at and click through. Some things I look for as a creative!
Nancy + Mike
Ted did an outstanding job at capturing our wedding as well as beautiful engagement photos! We had a destination wedding in California and he did find the perfect angles/lighting of the venue considering it’s his first time at the venue. He is so kind, so easy to work with and has a fantastic eye for capturing stunning photographs. We loved everything; his editing, his personality, and the album we got from our wedding.
Thank you, Ted!
Samer + Rawan
Ted is an amazing photographer. During our first meeting, one of the most important things he told me was that he was there to make sure I would see my wedding. That as bride and groom, my fiance and I would be so busy with photos, people, and all the activities that we would not be able to take it all in... He was so right! While our wedding was wonderful, it is not until we saw the photos that we realized how truly amazing everything was. The decor, settings, flowers, rings, people having a wonderful time and laughing.
He also took very unique shots that I had never seen before from a wedding photographer. He captured so many special moments between us, our families and friends that words can hardly describe the beauty and magic of it. Whether a smile, a touch of hands, a look, and emotion, he captured them all.
His enthusiasm, professionalism and incredible quality of work have made for some incredible memories for us of this amazing day. I recommend Ted without any reservations. He will make you see your wedding through his amazing talent and create memories that will make you smile for the rest of your life.
Steven + Anne-marie
Ted has a vision that you can really see once you receive your photos - amazing colours and a talent for capturing raw emotion. We highly recommend him for your photography needs! Ted is not only a pleasure to be around but he is an extremely talented photographer! Even though we don't enjoy having our photos taken Ted made it fun! Covid made an already stressful wedding even more stressful and Ted had a way of managing our chaos and working with us to capture the day. We are so pleased with our wedding photos and have had so many compliments!
Matt + Ashley
Ted was amazing to work with! He was very professional and patient with us. He made us feel very comfortable and gave us a lot of (much-needed) guidance throughout our engagement photos and wedding day photos. He was also extremely accommodating in letting us what we want to do.
Tom + Nicole
Ted did such an amazing job with both our engagement session and our wedding photos. I was really worried about not being able to open up to the camera, and that our pictures would look awkward. Ted really helped with coaching us to be more comfortable with being photographed. On our wedding day, unfortunately, it rained the whole day and was very wet during our couples session between the ceremony and reception. This is any bride's worse fear, but Ted helped to make the most of it. Our rainy pictures turned out beautiful, Ted has a really admirable work ethic as he braved through the downpour to help us get our shots. He also stayed late when our reception plans ran behind schedule, and he was completely dedicated to capturing all of the important moments. Also as others have mentioned, the pricing for the quality of work is outstanding. Compared to other photographers, excellent value for what you pay for.
We love our pictures and are so grateful to have all of these priceless memories to look back on several years later. Ted is very passionate about his work, and it definitely shows. Thank you for all of your hard work Ted!
Rodrigo + Jennifer
Ted was very kind and accommodating. He made us feel very comfortable during our big day. The photos were a good value and we were able to customize the packages to our needs. We were able to choose our own location for our engagement photos and received the photos within a decent time frame. I also really love that the photos are not watermarked. We had Ted and another photographer at our wedding and they were both extremely professional. All in a great experience with a great photographer!
Moe + Reema
Very professional. He captured the moment that I want and over my expectations. He is so great to help us to keep our memories for the big day. The most impressed me is the moment that he climbed to the higher point of taking a photo of us and the guests. And there is one more thing when he is going to take some pictures, he is very calm when I am shy at first, which makes me feel comfortable. When I adapted to his existence, he would relax us to make a happy picture. Honestly, he is so careful to watch us and tries his best to relax us.
Xanto + Aria
Ted was such an attentive photographer, and one of the best investments we made on our wedding day. He was really able to capture the essence of the day in his own unique style, and we couldn't have been happier with the results!
Vince + Michelle
We loved working with Ted! Having met him at a friend's wedding last summer (he was sitting at our table), we knew he was friendly and outgoing. Upon contacting him to book him for our wedding, he remembered us right away and was very accommodating in scheduling our initial meeting. After less than an hour, we knew Ted was the right person to shoot our big day. He included engagement pictures in his package which was so wonderful, especially since I wanted snowy, wintery photos and the day we did them was one of the coldest we had all winter. He's very upfront and leaves no questions about what his services cost and what is included with them. I thought we needed an extra hour the day of, and he was more than happy to oblige. He showed up Early (!) the day of the wedding and was very professional looking. I could not be happier with the choice we made, the pictures are everything we wanted them to be and more. He will be my go-to guy for any photography needs in the future, he's just that good!
Brendon + Christina
I met Ted at the Wedding fair in Calgary. When I saw his work, I decided with no doubt that I work with him for our wedding pictures. I really love his soft and sweet photography style. Ted was really easy to work with; he's very experienced and really wanted to know what we wanted, and our tradition as well. He's also very easygoing and was willing without hesitation to accommodate my requests. I really recommend working with him if you like it simple, straightforward and with no hassle.
Finka + Ryan
Ted was very professional and made us feel extremely comfortable! He was able to suggest great scenic locations for our photos! We loved the quality of the photos and working with Ted! Highly recommended!
Grant + Julie
Ted was fantastic! I'm so glad I chose him as my wedding photographer. He was super responsive and always made sure to ask us for our opinion on choosing the location of the photos and who/what we would like to include. He was also extremely flexible. I ended up getting sick with swollen eyes on the morning of our engagement photo shoot and he was willing to change dates to accommodate my condition which I thought was very kind and understanding. Overall, I was extremely happy with his professionalism, upbeat attitude and willingness to make things as easy/smooth for us as possible. I would recommend him to anyone and not just my friends. Thanks again for all your help, you are wonderful!
Bennett + Sabrina
Ted is a very professional photographer! He cares for and builds on his relationship with the couples.
The first thing he asked my wife and me was how we met and our love story. Which then allows him to capture our moment on our big day in a more meaningful way.
Ted is always punctual and responds to his email or phone calls right away which is very reassuring. He showed up 20 mins prior to our arranged time and started helping us right away.
Thanks again, Ted!
Andrew + Megan
Ted has been such a pleasure to work with. We had to change so many things with our wedding, especially with covid but he has been nothing but patient and understanding of our situation. We had a consultation with him where he took the time to learn our story and the shots we want and he also showed us the photos he took and his style which works perfectly with us. He definitely made sure to capture perfect shots of our wedding and even came early at the ceremony to make sure everything is all set and took photos of everything he can. He is a very talented gentleman and I highly recommend him to everyone who wants a perfect wedding!
Richelle + Max
Ted has a great eye for taking beautiful photos! He's very creative and uses angles to get perfect pictures. We were very happy with the variety of pictures we received and had a blast working with him. Thanks for the awesome memories!
Carsten + Rachelle
Ted of The MOU Studio was a great photographer to work with for our engagement photo session and on the wedding day! From the first day we met him, he showed nothing but professionalism and interest in getting to know us. This put us at ease as we knew then his service would be tailored to us, not just his artistry. We also appreciate the directions he gave us during photo shoots as we had little idea how to pose for engagement and wedding photos.
Ted was organized, prepared and punctual. Photos were delivered on time, beautifully taken and processed of course. On the eve of our wedding, he was still busy checking out the venue and surrounding areas for the most ideal locations for photos, and we really appreciated his dedication to his work.
Daniel + Marita
We highly recommend Ted as a photographer. He was very professional and accommodating with our two postponements. He made us very comfortable on our wedding day and the pictures turned out amazing. It was a pleasure working with Ted!
David + Tiffany
We liked Ted very much! He was super friendly making us feel comfortable right away. His photos are amazing and very natural. Ted is very professional and made sure he got all the shots we wanted. We would recommend Ted to everyone!
Randal + Mabel
Ted was literally our last-minute wedding photographer. He is easy to talk to and he made us feel comfortable even just meeting him on that day. He is very professional and the photo quality is amazing. The photos also came back to us pretty quickly.
Kyle + Regina
Ted did an amazing job for both our engagement and wedding photography! He is creative, kind, passionate and professional. We love the way that he captured the best day of our lives!
