PWPC Summer 2015 Wedding Photography Contest Judge: Brian Di Croce   
Brian Di Croce   Brian Di Croce Photography    (Montreal, QC)

I thrive to capture beautiful moments with a camera, so that I can give them back as meaningful photographs to those that want them.
My name is Brian Di Croce and I'm a passionate wedding photographer based in Montreal, Canada. My storytelling approach to wedding photography is simply to document the joy, the happiness, the laughs, the hugs, the screams and the beautiful chaos that encompass a wedding day for a couple, their friends and families. The reason for this is quite simple. So that they may forever remember their very special day.
Since launching the adventure in 2013, my wedding work has been recognized by Huffington Post Weddings, Junebug Weddings, Rangefinder Magazine, Fearless Photographers and our very own Professional Wedding Photographers of Canada.

I am a wedding photographer based in Toronto, I record marriage moments from a special "Cafa" angle, and create love memories with passion.

I have won some awards of PWPC, ISPWP and FEARLESS in the first two years of my career. I am not a story-maker, but a story-teller, telling the love stories in an artistically way. I provide service beyond Toronto area.

Photography is much more than a job for me. The camera helps me meet amazing couples in the world, I love it...
