Vintage Wedding and Engagement Photography by Džesika Devic

4

25-year old Canadian wedding photographer Džesika Devic prides herself as “Toronto’s only authentic vintage wedding photographer” - and for a very good reason.

At first glance, Devic may seem like your usual film photographer who dabbles in digital photography on occasion and takes photos of a myriad of subjects. However, what makes her stand out from the bunch is that she specializes on shooting weddings and engagements using authentic vintage cameras. Her arsenal, which she calls her “secret weapons”, include nine working vintage cameras as well as a digital SLR. On a candid note, she even included her husband Eddie Fizor in her list of “secret weapons” (“very limited edition,” she boasts) because he serves as her “valuable second shooter” at events.

As a child, Devic has always been fascinated with the old photos that her parents keep at the basement of their home in Kitchener, Ontario. Placing high importance on nostalgia, she strives to “perfectly capture your moments of love, pride, and joy, and save them for you in your very own nostalgia vault.”

Here are a few more lovely photographs by the talented Devic!

    Reminiscent of traveling photographers of the 19th century, Giles Clement tours through the country with his assistant, Zeiss (an Irish Terrier), offering everything from portrait sessions to wildly creative photographic projects for magazines and companies.

    A Salute to the Masters: Swing Festival in Como (A Tribute to Alexey Brodovitch)

    This year marks the 70th anniversary of the publication of one of the most influential photography books ever, "Ballet" by the photographer, art director, and graphic designer Alexey Brodovitch. Brodovitch took a series of photos of classical dance in a very unconventional way, using very slow exposure times, trying to catch the true essence of Russian ballets.
