I’m Niv Shimshon.


And I know that pictures aren’t just another thing on the wedding day to-do list, but rather a chance to relive your love, as long as you both shall live. At the end of the day, I will always choose people over things. I capture what makes your marriage (and your day) so incredibly memorable. After all, the most magic happens in small moments among your friends, family, and partnernot in staged photos of shoes or stiff snapshots of the cutlery. Your love is exceptionally you, and your wedding photos will be, too.

In the summer of 2013, my wife and I packed our things (and our dog Freddy!) and moved to Toronto from Tel-Aviv, Israel. A year later, our daughter Olive was born and 4 years later, we decided to move to Hamilton, where our son Max was born.

My work has been featured in Style me pretty, Junebug weddings, the Wedding Co, Rock ‘n Roll Bride, Tribe Red LeafSmashing the GlassMy day and Urban brides (Hebrew).

I’m based in Hamilton, ON, but am available for work Canada-wide.
