What we are Passionate about...
We believe when our couples invest in us, they are investing in our ability to tell their stories. Being fine art wedding photographers, we take the time to capture a storyline for our couples that will be documentary, artistic and unique.
Award winning Manitoba wedding photographer currently based out of a little “coastal” town called Gimli, in the middle of Manitoba, Canada. I was born and raised in South Africa and document weddings out there when Manitoba is frozen in.
In my early 20’s I went to Taiwan, to go teach English and see the world. Little did I know I would meet the most amazing, small town prairie girl, on a blind date, in a bar, and my life would forever be flipped upside down… We have two stunning little human creatures keeping us on our toes, a Weiner dog and love living by the water.
Our deep love for family and adventure, is what keeps us present and motivated, mindful as much as we can be, that we have to live, with everything we have, each and every day!

I first came across BLF Studios over six years ago, and instantly fell in love with Bond’s work and style. I loved the way his photos captured emotions, told personal stories, and were artistic. When I got engaged two years ago, I didn’t even consider looking at other photographers, I knew I had to have Bond capture my special day.

Bond captured both our Connection Shoot as well as our Wedding. My fiance and I didn’t really know what to expect when arriving to our Connection Shoot, but Bond quickly put us at ease and made the process very easy and fun! After getting the photos back we were blown away, the photos were amazing, and we received many compliments on them.
Justine + Gerald
We used Bond for our destination wedding in Mexico. He was so wonderful! He's hands down a wonderful photographer and a very great person. He was with our family and friends for the entire week and he fit right in! He maintained his professionalism all while blending in with the group and taking incredible photos. His photos bring the true meaning of a pictures worth 1000 words. He has captured our memories perfectly and has created beautiful pieces of art.
Roberto + Cassandra
When we saw samples of Tony's work online, we knew we had to hire him for our wedding. His photos are so unique and creative. We were absolutely blown away when we received the photos from our ceremony and reception. Tony so perfectly captured our day!

When we starting the planning process and began to look at photographers for our wedding I knew I wanted the best. BLF studios had been on my top list for a while but once we met with him he secured a place in our hearts. He was beyond welcoming and I could tell he was looking to tell a story through photos. He had us both in tears as he presented his work to us - we were so moved.With our connection shoot and on our wedding day his calm demeanor put us at ease, he was professional and fun! When your first look at your wedding photos has you in a full out cry you know the job was well done. His photos will not only remind you of your beautiful event - but of all the emotions you felt. I cannot express enough how happy I am and will forever be with our photos!If you want your photos to stun people, and to be amazing forever go with BLF studios.
