We met David, Marianne and Joel at the Canada Bridal Show while searching for a photographer on very short notice for our small at-home wedding. They made an impression on us immediately by the level of detail and interest that they showed in our wedding plans, and quickly made our short-list as we went through the options.Our concern was because we had relatively simple DIY decorations and a homey setting their talents might be wasted on us, but they reassured us that their forte was in making magic moments happen out of nowhere. We are so happy to report that the Lai family delivered on that promise and then some.The resulting photos we received of our wedding day are amazing, and we are so impressed with the skill and creativity that David, Marianne and Joel showed in creating beautiful, dramatic shots out of objects and locations that we had around the house.We are equally impressed with their energy, professionalism, friendliness and how much care they took in making sure our friends and family got great photos with us. Many of our guests commented about how much fun this family photography team was to hang out with!Thank you so much David and Marianne, and special thanks to Joel for being our extremely helpful stand-in groomsman/bridesmaid!

Thank you to Visions by David for being the #1 vendor we picked for our wedding day! I have been following the family's work for several years and I have always been in awe of their creative and beautiful work. My husband and I knew there would not be anyone better to capture our special day! We are extremely lucky to have them shoot our engagement shoot and our wedding! We received the photos very quickly and we love the passion, detail, and artistry demonstrated in every shot. They are experts as they know the best angles and use the surroundings to the fullest to capture beautiful portraits. They took care of us from the beginning of the wedding process, on the wedding day, and afterwards as they treat their clients like their family. Visions By David captured all the details that allow us to revisit our special day whenever we want. Our family and friends commented how professional our photography/cinematography team was and their fun and outgoing personality allows anyone to feel comfortable behind a camera. Thank you again for being absolutely amazing and we can't wait for the video :) ! More...

Where do I even begin, I have followed David and his family's work since Gr.9. 12 years later, it was a dream come true to have them as my photographer/videographers. Today is actually my one month wedding anniversary and I had received the best gift today which were my wedding photos & videos. I was expecting to receive them a lot longer but they were so fast! Working with David and his family was the best! Their passion is reflected in their work and their working dynamic is so in sync that you know you are getting your memories captured from the best angles. The creativity they have as an artist and an eye for detail makes you so thankful to have chosen them to capture the little things that you often miss out on the wedding day. I am in love with my photos and videos and I can't wait to share them to the world. Here's a sample of the amazing work they have done. More...

To David Lai and the Visions By David team: thank you for the outstanding work that you have done for both my daughter and my niece's weddings. They are exceptional photos, we love them!

First and foremost I just want to thank you David for your amazing service and hospitality. I felt confident that you would be able to deliver great service and provide outstanding photos after your wife has taken the time to invite me into your home and browse through your professional photos.

It was a pleasure doing business with David. The amount of energy, passion and kindness derived from our consultation and meetings to follow made it warming and enjoyable. Visions by David has provided me with the experience and security I needed to feel that they will be able to give me the photos of my life and capture the essence of my wedding. The shots were praised by all my family members and friends, and I am in utter awe how my wedding photography turned out. The quality was great, the angles and creativity was outstanding and the ability to make myself, my guests and family comfortable in photos (especially because we are all stiff) was done with ease. Every shot was just natural and captured the beauty of the moment.
I have no doubt that Visions by David will be able to deliver the same outstanding service to future clients.

Thank you for working so hard to capture all the special moments and helping me relive my wedding again.

I have the opportunity to work with David, Marianne and their young adults Justin, Joel, Ryan and Desiree. I can appreciate how much more extra work these guys have to put in to achieve the highest level of photography standards and impeccable creativity and technical know how. You pay for what you get. I would recommend anyone of my network to them any day! More...

I first worked with Ryan on a volunteer organization where he captured many memories for the group. He also did professional headshots which many still use today. It was from this volunteer experience that I knew I could trust him and his family to capture the right moments for me and my family's business. We challenged them with a big project with little time. It turned out to be a fun filled shoot with a great turnout. We're ecstatic to launch our new online presence with the work of Visions By David! More...

When my husband and I decided to get married, we both envisioned an intimate celebration of love to be witnessed by our closest family and friends. We did not want a conventional wedding, simply a day of love and enjoyment. Our plan was to even bypass a photographer, in hopes of keeping the day as effortless, streamlined and stress free as possible. We soon found that although most people were open to our unorthodox way of thinking and planning, the exclusion of a photographer is where people drew the line.
With some convincing, we decided to research a photographer that could capture our idea of the most significant day of our lives. With a little luck and help from our very good friend Shawn he recommended his friends David and Marianne of Visions by David. When we made the initial phone call, we were immediately taken with Marianne infectious energy and their desire to meet in person.

Our preliminary meeting started with a quick greeting followed by an immediate viewing of a video montage of weddings shot by Visions by David.
Instantly we were overcome with emotion as the beauty of each photo transcended from the screen into our hearts. In our search before meeting Marianne and David never did we come close to finding another photographer who could compare. The exquisite intimacy that a couple experiences on their wedding day and the interpretation by Visions by David was a level of photography that surpasses the rest. When the video ended, I whispered to my husband that this was the photographer I wanted and undoubtedly believed they would perfectly accomplish our goal to celebrate our love elegantly and in a distinctive manner.

Upon reconvening and finding out that our wedding date was available, only one question remained. As Gay couple we wanted to know if Visions by David had shot a gay wedding and how they felt about it. The enthusiasm that exploded with no hesitation let us know that we were in the company of people whose character embrace equality and celebrate all love. We are honoured to be the first same sex wedding for Visions by David. Words do not sufficiently describe how truly remarkable David, Marianne and their family are. Their support and guidance on the day of our wedding will forever be appreciated. They captured our wedding day better than we could have ever imagined; a direct result of their amazing abilities.

We want all potential couples to know how outstanding they are as people first and foremost, coupled with their incomparable talent and services. Visions by David have set the bar of photography that very few could ever come close to meeting.

We thank you for your exceptional service, creativity and imagination. We are privileged, grateful, humbled and forever thankful you were brought into our world and that we now can call you friends.

One year and counting...

With Love,
Al and Michael

They were so good that we opened up our wedding speech by thanking them, acknowledging the greatness of their work, and most importantly, recognizing how wonderful they are as human beings.

We had the privilege of having our engagement shoot in New York City. To this day, Nina and I are blown away by how incredible these pictures turned out. The Visions by David team were always in control and captured a lot of "on the fly" pictures as we travelled between destination points. In addition to the flawless engagement pictures, Nina and I got to spend a lot of time with the family and got to know them better. It was during this trip where we created a friendship beyond the traditional "client and photographer" relationship. Amazing photographers and amazing people to be around.

VBD also created a video for us that we used as our grand entrance. Again, the craftsmanship and creativity of their work was out of this world. Nina and I did not even provide a complete track list to use for the video. We left it in the hands of the VDB team...and they delivered! I mention the music piece because I'm a DJ. I'm well aware of how the music selection in any type of setting can make it or break it!

Lastly, the photo's and video on our big day. Nina and I, and our families frequently look at them. It always brings us back to that special day, which is what they are suppose to do - capture the moment. It is because of VBD that Nina and I can look at the pictures and video and be reminded on how perfect and flawless our special day was.

To this day, we continue to keep in touch with David and the family. We are truly blessed to have met them and have them as a part of our wedding. Not only as the photographers, but as our friends.

I guess the last thing to write is - Yes, we would definitely recommend Visions by David :)

Marianne, David, Ryan, Joel and Desiree,

We just wanted to express again how thankful we are for all your hard work during our engagement photo shoot and wedding ceremonies. We feel so lucky to have had the Visions by David family as our photographers. Your pictures are truly priceless, and your talent and teamwork is unbeatable!

From the first time we met you, we were instantly drawn by your professionalism, willingness to listen to our needs, and of course, the unique style of your photography. Thank you for taking the time to learn about our wedding photography vision and for making it come to life within our budget needs.

Since I was a little girl, I had always dreamed of having my wedding pictures in the mountains. Since we chose to get married in Toronto instead of Calgary, I let that dream go. I will forever be grateful that you didn’t give up on my dream. Thank you so much for going out of your way to give us a whole day premium engagement photo shoot in Calgary, Banff and Lake Louise. It was truly a magical experience. Every time we look at the pictures, we still can’t believe they’re real! David and Ryan made us instantly feel comfortable and put special thought into every pose and location, producing breath-taking images. Marianne, thank you for taking the time to speak to me about my dress changes for the day, and for sending the veiled hat to complete my look. Our family was blow-away by the high-quality and artistic uniqueness of each shot. They were very pleased that we chose Visions by David as our photographers rather than a family friend. We had such a memorable time with the engagement shoot. We’ve never gazed into each other’s eyes for so long. We definitely felt like models and had a blast!

Thank you for capturing all the little details for all four days of our wedding ceremonies. Numerous friends and family commented on the punctuality, professionalism and cultural sensitivity of the Visions by David family. Everyone is still talking about the guest signing book you made us, and it’s a book we’ll cherish forever. We really appreciate your help in making our wedding ceremonies run smoothly, even during times that may have felt chaotic. Your patience and calm nature did not go unnoticed. The pictures we have seen so far of the wedding are phenomenal, and we can’t wait to see the rest!

Thank you, thank you, thank you Visions by David. We absolutely love your work, and have highly recommended you to friends and family. We look forward to capturing many more future life milestones with you. You guys rock!

Warmest Regards,
Tehseen and Shan

We are so greatful that we met David, Marianne and their entire family. They are a team of extremely talented photographers who exceeded all our expectations. Even though when we met them, we knew they would do an amazing job! They are extremely professional. Also, looking at their past work, you can see outstanding talent. We used them for our daughters bat Mitzvah and for a pre batmitzvah photo shoot.
David and his talented team took the most amazing pre bat mitzvah pictures of our daughter and family. They had great ideas on how to make the must unique and beautiful shots. We had such a fun time doing the photoshoot. Our daughter felt like a princess! It's a day we will never forget!
It's also so evident that David and his team has such a passion for their work. We just love that!
During the bat mitzvah, they captured the entire event. Every single small detail was photographed. After working so hard to put this event together, it's so important to have the right photographer who captures every single memory. We made the best choice. Hands down, the Lai family is the best team we could have chosen.
We also used them for a photo booth at the event. After going to many events, I have never seen a better photo booth with such amazing, cool props! And so nicely set up !
David and his team produced the nicest same day edit video of the photos from the event. It shows the highlights of the event so beautifully. It's such a treasure. We absolutely love it. We emailed it to all our friends who love it too and said they watched it over and over!
The Lai family are not only the most talented team, but such a pleasure to work with. They are so warm and kind, and fun to work with. They really make the whole experience an unforgettable memory.
Marianne,and David, we love you and your beautiful family. We are so happy to have met you. We would like to thank you all again so much! We will treasure every single picture forever. We can't wait to use your amazing services again ( I don't think I can wait very long!!!! ).

David, Marianne, and there team of superstar kids really know how to get the best out of everyone on the big day. They are experienced, professional and a pleasure to have around throughout our big day capturing all of the big important moments, and capturing the things that I think most would overlook as well. They are really a fun bunch, and are certainly the real deal when it comes to getting the pictures you are looking for. I can't imagine having anyone else taking our photographs/ video on our big day.
Oh and they have a drone and its awesome!

Thank you guys!

Where do we begin with David and Marianne and their amazing family! It didn't take us too long to find the right photographers/videographers for our September 24 wedding since we found them right away! They were recommended to us by a family friend. The second they opened their doors to us we just clicked right away and we knew they would be the ones to capture every moment of our wedding! Not only are they very knowledgable and talented the whole family brings a fun energy with them which was very helpful for us as our wedding day was stressful. It was never a dull moment! Especially with the Lai kids!! They even joined us for the party too! Every shot they took from our engagement shoot photos to the wedding photos we were constantly impressed by the quality of their work. They definitely know what they are doing and will not disappoint! We love the whole Lai gang and keep doing what you guys are doing!❤️❤️

We hired David to be our photographer for our wedding held at the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Toronto. My husband and I are very particular with our photos and we wanted a photographer whose work stands out from the rest. Most photographers nowadays use too much filters or photoshop every aspect of the photo making it too fake but David is the opposite. We were really happy to have found David Lai to do both our engagement and wedding pictures! His work is one of a kind and his photos are just magical and never dull. We remember meeting David and Marianne and their kids who are photographers as well for the first time and right away we were convinced that we have found the right photographer for us! Their outgoing and fun personality just made us feel comfortable around them and this helped a lot during our photoshoots. We also loved the fact that David and Marianne try to get to know each of the couple they work with making the photos more personal and original per couple. David and his team are so creative and our photos turned out amazing! We do recommend them to anyone looking for the best professional photographer -they really are the best! Thank you Lai family for capturing our day and making the memories of our wedding last through your work! We wish you all the best and keep up the great work and most especially keep having fun!!!

Visions by David is by far the most professional service I have used. Our team is extremely grateful for the stunning photos Visions by David was able to capture.

Love Visions by David! 4 years ago, when our daughter decided to get married she told me that she wanted to get a photographer that would meet her standard of capturing their special pictures. She checked out several photographers until she came across Visions by David Photography. Right away, she saw that their pictures are totally unique, and she knew that she wanted them to be the photographers for her wedding. And their engagement and wedding pictures are incredible! The Lai family are totally amazing, their family is such a great team, and wonderful people that are totally talented and know exactly how to capture those special moments. They don't take cookie cutter pictures, but they make each picture different and special. This Christmas they did a photoshoot of our family, our two children and their spouses, and again, we are just so excited with the pictures! We can't thank them enough for taking their time, and knowing how much these pictures mean to us!! Thank you David and Marianne and family for creating such beautiful pictures for our family!!

Visions by David is the best! They were awesome from start to finish. They did our engagement photos in Cuba as well as all of our wedding photos. Everything was absolutely amazing. Visions by David went above and beyond! They were so knowledgeable about everything involved in the wedding process and they were amazingly helpful. I would love to do more photos with them for any other special event. They make everybody feel comfortable and excited. All of our smiles were genuine because working with Visions by David is always a good time! Our entire bridal party loved their entire team! Again, Visions by David is the best! More...

David and Marianne were absolutely incredible and patient to work with. They took their time in creating, what turned out to be the most memorable and treasured photos, we now possess. We thoroughly enjoyed doing the photo shoot for both our pre-wedding and wedding. They also made it so much fun that although we had to do the shoot in that tremendous heat in Singapore, they pulled it off without a glitch. They were nothing short of professional with their craftsmanship and you can see that in each image, where they were able to capture every emotion. My wife and I are very happy with how the photos turned out and highly recommend Visions by David, without hesitation. David has a true eye for his photographic art that requires a lot of talent and we are so glad that we chose them to be our photographers for our wedding. They knew exactly how to make us feel comfortable throughout the day. Thank you so much again for making our special day even more special! More...

We hired Visions by David for our wedding. David and his family did such a great job. We love how our wedding photos came out and we have received so many compliments from others about how beautiful our wedding photos are. David, Marianne and his whole family were great and easy to work with. David has a great sense of humour and he puts everyone at ease. Even guests at our wedding commented on how much they enjoyed the photographers as well. Most of all we enjoyed David and his family’s creativity. They improvise with what they find in their surroundings and create beautiful, unique photos. We first hired them because we were impressed with the beauty and creativity in their past work and we were not disappointed. More...

David and Marianne (and the whole family) are amazing people. I did a lot of research and read a lot of reviews before we chose a photographer for our wedding. At our intake meeting, we laughed, we cried and we booked VBD. Throughout there was a ton of communication and Marianne is great at making you feel comfortable with all the details up to your big day. We had a lot of fun working with them and really appreciated everything they did for us and best yet, our photos came out awesome. I will say, I was hesitant because there were some reviews that were not positive, but we were very happy with how it all worked out for us. I think we met the entire family and it is awesome to see a family work together and show such tremendous love for one another. That really was the selling point to me. They really love capturing all those special moments and that is the best part! Go meet them and you'll get what I mean. Thank you VBD:) More...

We have a long standing history with Visions by David. They have been capturing our most important milestones for years. From baby pictures to family portraits. They have always come through with amazing photos. They have a wide range of skills that really work well in any situation. We wouldn't have trusted anybody else with the photography and videography for our daughter's wedding. Visions by David was, as always, very professional. Their team worked seamlessly to take fantastic photos on a tight schedule. Everyone felt very comfortable working with them. They did an amazing job capturing everybody's unique personalities. And the photos and videos were beautiful. They brought out the best of all of us, my daughter’s dresses and emotions. The photos are super sharp and the colour of the photos are very vibrant. I really love how the shadows are exactly where they supposed to be. Each frame is a piece of art. Thank you, Visions by David, for capturing every special moment on our daughter’s special day!

Not only do they have an award winning reputation, but they also have such fun personalities which would make the photo shoot experience that much more enjoyable.

Visions By David is a family run business which employs every member of their family, from David and Marianne to their now adult children; Ryan, Justin, Joel and Desiree. Each of them has their strengths, whether it be photography, video, editing or even a special knack for getting those rare shots from little kids that make family and friends say "awwww", and are an integral part in covering your day or event.I've long admired the work of Visions By David, but assumed that with their level of experience and time in the business that we'd never be able to afford their services when the day came for our special day. Still when it came time to begin having conversations with photographers for our destination wedding in PDC, Mexico we reached out to them anyway to see what, if anything was possible.Meeting with David and Marianne was like meeting with old friends right from the get go, David is the artist and Marianne his director (well sort of, but aren't all wives their husbands directors, haha). We felt super comfortable with them from the get go and when we expressed our concerns about budgets and the like, the told us not to worry and that they would work within our budgets and produce something extra special and memorable.We decided on a photo and video package for the wedding, and in addition to their fees we paid for the travel of 3 team members. While this might sound like a lot, having the team there 24/7 was great as most photographers you would hire for a wedding in Mexico as we found would charge nearly the same but for 4-5 hours of work on the day of - and you have no in person contact with them before arriving on location.They were true professionals, upon arrival they got to work, walking every square inch of the resort (and off) to find ideal locations and then measuring the lighting days in advance at different times of day so they knew exactly what sort of situations they would be dealing with and where would be best for us to get the best pictures.Where their experience showed was in helping us organize our day of photos so that we were able to maximize every instant and capture it all. They planned a full day where they were able to get the guys getting ready and having some fun while the ladies were getting their hair and make up done, then transferring over to the ladies and the eventual first look and group shots before the ceremony and reception.The benefit of having the team there is they all knew what to look for and if a hand or head was misplaced, or people weren't lining up properly you had not 1 but 4 sets of eyes calling details out to ensure every picture was picture perfect.In addition to our wedding, we also planned to do an offsite shoot at a cenote (naturally occurring cave with water in it). Because of their time in the business they knew who to talk to and where to go to ensure this experience was private, special and amazing.While the video does take a bit longer to get done, it should be arriving soon but if it's anything like the pictures we have (over 1000 awesome shots) I know we'll be able to relive the magic of our wedding day for years and years to come.Thank you to David, Marianne, Joel and Desi for helping make our wedding memorable!

VisionsbyDavid is by far, the most talented, artistic photographers out there. I wouldn't trust anyone else with my special photos ! !! So many crap photographers out there, that think they are a photographer cause they bought a camera. They have no CLUE how a camera really works, let alone, adding that artistic special touch to the photo. Changing a photo to black and white, doesn't make it artsy, lol !!! Appreciated these guys since Day 1, and worth the $ that translates to Quality. AMAZING work !!!! More...

When I was looking for a photographer back when we got married in 2012, I knew I wanted someone who did not take your average 'cookie cutter' photographs. My mom and I spent quite a lot of time researching and looking and finally stumbled across the Lai family! The moment we had our first meeting with them and the moment I set eyes on their work, I knew they were the ones. David, Marianne, Joel and Desiree, you were all amazing and we can not thank you enough for the beautiful and amazing pictures we have. They took the time to get to know us and most of all they knew how to have fun :) We now have priceless memories that will forever be with us. We are still getting compliments on our pictures to this day! More...

i am not surprised this company with almost 3 decades of experience is so well thought of by clients and industry.We engaged Visions By David over 10 years ago for our wedding video, which we absolutely loved. Till today we enjoy watching it. Just last year we asked the company to help take some family photos, and once again we were blown away.David has such an eye for creativity, uniqueness and outstanding technique. His passion for his work comes through in every photo. He has an amazing eye for detail which translates into every picture looking like a magazine advertisement or postcard.Every time our friends and family see our album they are in awe of the level of professionalism of photography. Marianne was a pleasure to work with and helped arrange the entire shoot, putting us at ease. Her bubbly personality helped calm any nerves we had, and made the shoot incredibly memorable.We can never thank Visions By David enough for the memories captured for our family. More...

Excellent Service! I came to David and his team to look at editing my already shot wedding video. Where some companies I talked to wouldn't touch my video because they didn't shoot it originally, David said "yes, no problem, bring me the footage and we'll look at it right away". I was so appreciative of his attitude and service and his willingness to help. David and his team were and continue to be a great company and group of people to work with and I constantly recommend them to many of my contacts. In referring Visions By David I am referring with confidence and many of those that I referred had nothing but positive comments about their experience in working with the Visions by David team. If you're looking to get wedding video, corporate video, editing, photography and other related services, I 100% recommend David and Marianne and their team of professionals. More...

David, Marianne, and the entire Lai family were the photographers and videographers for our wedding back in April 2016. For over a year, my husband Mark and I planned our wedding and it was during that time that we got the opportunity to know the Lai family. I initially met them at a bridal show in Toronto and instantly got along with Marianne and her sons (Ryan, Justin, and Joel). They were very fun, down-to-earth, and just easy to get along with and laugh with. I knew right away that I wanted to have them do our wedding, not only because they were a great bunch to be around, but because their photos and videos from previous weddings I'd seen were just top notch and spectacular. I remember when my husband and I saw a clip of a wedding video they had just done (before choosing to go with them for our wedding), and we both teared watching it, we knew that we had to book them pronto! My husband Mark and I could only imagine what our wedding photos and video could be and we were not disappointed! Both our engagement and wedding photos turned out beautifully. We have received so many wonderful compliments on the pictures so far (we still have to show everyone the video, but a video date for family and friends is coming!). What we loved so much was the vision they had while they took these gorgeous shots of Mark and I. They call their business, "Visions By David," and we could definitely see why. Places where you wouldn't think would be much of a place to shoot, the family would see something and make magic with it! Mark and I would suggest having the Lai family be your wedding photographers AND videographers. You must get a wedding video done by them. We never thought about getting one ourselves, but we are glad we did! Mark and I recently watched our wedding video for the first time and it got us quite emotional. What a wonderful memento to have. Thank you Marianne for highly suggesting getting a wedding video, it was the best decision we made. Thank you Lai family for making our wedding special and for creating magical keepsakes of memories that Mark and I can cherish forever. More...

Great Photographer! Very Creative and humorous, but professional at the same time.
Made me feel really comfortable in front of the Camera and helped me open up to make the photos more natural and beautiful. Thank you very much!
