We Want to Hear From You!

Name *

This is Us

We met in 2008 and knew we were meant to be after one fateful night of Disney karaoke and a few glasses of wine. Married in 2016, we are now guiding couples through their own weddings and doing whatever it takes to give them the best wedding photography experience that we can.   

Why We are different

Between the two of us we have 20 years of experience in the Winnipeg wedding industry.  Joel had an early start in the wedding industry as an interactive DJ and in 2009 he started the company Black & Gold Photography.  Cheryl graduated with a degree in Theatre Design from the University of Winnipeg in 2009.  She has 10 years of dance training and loves when all the pieces of a production come together.  Her eye for detail and creativity led her to photography.  For 3 years Joel and Cheryl managed a local portrait studio together photographing families and people of all ages.  Fast forward to now and the husband and wife duo have combined their many strengths to make Black & Gold Photography what it is today. 

"Photography is more than just a job to us.  It's a lifestyle.  If we're not shooting weddings we're experimenting and pushing ourselves to make our art better for our clients.  We want everyone we work with to feel confident and beautiful on their wedding day.  Just have fun and forget about the cameras.  We love real moments with real emotions."
