The team believes that taking the time to tell an intentional story around the wedding day will allow their Aperture Lane couples to appreciate their keepsakes for many years to come. In establishing the brand, Aperture Lane’s diverse clientele is proof that their storytelling method is not for a particular bunch, but rather a universally appreciated style.

They quietly document during the formal portions and enthusiastically direct and encourage their couples during the photo sessions in order to get organic reactions to enhance their films later on. Aside from creating thoughtful narratives with his couples, Ryan, the head of Aperture Lane, is committed to educating brides along their journey to marriage.

Dreamfilms Wedding Videography
My name is Rapheal and I am the owner of Dreamfilms Wedding Videography, based in Brampton Ontario.
I believe what sets me apart from most wedding videographers are these three things:
- I don’t capture love stories – this is a positive thing, hear me out: I think it’s disrespectful to limit a love story to a couple of hours or days. A wedding is just one elaborate chapter in a much bigger ‘love story’. What I capture is the detail, emotion and the essence of how that chapter will be remembered.
- No awkward poses: I don’t give my clients commands like “move your hand behind you head” or “tilt your head up but keep your eyes down” etc. I know these people aren’t hollywood actors and actresses. I simply film things as they happen, and I love the natural reactions I see. Think about it. The last time you were asked to do something in a specific way while being filmed probably felt awkward, right? My clients never have to worry about this feeling with me
- Amazing audio: they say half of what makes a great video, is having great audio. That is true in every way. I absolutely pride myself on audio production in my films. When I show up on a wedding day, capturing enough audio to create a story in my films is my number one priority. Everyone will pull out their phones during the wedding ceremony and reception, but it takes a true professional to capture vows at the altar or the speech a father will make to his daughter.
While they say a picture is worth a thousand words, I say a film is worth a million.
To be given the opportunity to capture what is to be the most important day in a couple’s life is a responsibility that I’m proud to be apart of.
I firmly believe that every couple has their own unique story, and every one of my weddings reflect this. My cinematic approach to wedding filmmaking allows me to open the creative envelope to curate a wedding film that takes a unique approach to storytelling – one that is full of the tears, joys and excitement that you experienced on your wedding day.
Every couple has a story unique to their journey together – what’s your story?
Five Feet Above Productions
Fivefeetabove Productions is a Cinematography and Photography Media Production Company that has challenged the Wedding and Corporate industry to create change and recognize extraordinary art.
Fivefeetabove Productions started with a growing passion to create storyboards, editing film pieces together and inspiring a growing audience in the year of August, 2013. Marwah Khan Izzeddin started Fivefeetabove Productions through her passion of storytelling with visionary art. It all started with her passion for creating YouTube videos on things that she loved and broke boundaries. “I just wanted to pick up the camera and film and edit anything and everything that came in my way.” Said Marwah Khan Izzeddin at the young age of 19. Soon enough, her growing passion for the Arts became more than just a hobby when she decided to film her first International Fashion Festival, which was held in the heart of Downtown, Toronto. Later then, Marwah Khan Izzeddin began to do photoshoots for editorial covers, fashion magazines, bloggers and other influencers.
She fell in love with her passion for filmmaking and storytelling. After receiving her first gig for a Wedding, she knew that this was her calling. Marwah Khan Izzeddin, was one of the first South Asian & Middle-Eastern female filmmakers to enter the industry and break the cultural taboo that women don’t belong in this industry. “It was a difficult ride. I remember my own family members telling me that women in this industry can’t have families or a stable home.” It was then that Marwah Khan Izzeddin realized that she will do anything and everything to break this norm and prove to the world that women are capable of becoming successful filmmakers.
Here at HenjoFilms, our number one goal is to tell love stories beautifully on film.
Love stories that are truly unique to each couple. That’s why we’re so proud that throughout our 10 years in the wedding videography business, we’ve consistently been told by our couples that they are amazed at how our videos capture the essence of ‘them’ in a matter of minutes! Even strangers feel like they know our couples after watching their highlight films.
Although we film cinematically with beauty, light and the best angles in mind, candid moments rule all when choosing where our attention lies on a wedding day! Those stolen moments are the ones that our couples truly want to see and remember. ‘I didn’t know you captured that!’ is the best kind of feedback for us! We’ve been known to hide in a bush or two.
Our magic lies in the editing room, where we focus in on the love, the emotion, the humour and basically all the FEELS from the big day. No stone is left unturned as we sift through tonnes of footage and piece together a work that truly captures the personalities, quirks, and journeys of our clients as couples!
Better than telling you, we will let our films do the talking!
