The Crewe

Hello, I'm Lori-Anne Crewe, owner and lead photographer at Cast & Crewe Photography/Film. Sadly, I'm still working on my self-portrait ; ) When I do finally post my photo you will notice a slight resemblance to blues singer/songwriter, Bonnie Raitt  (so I have been told). But honestly, I much prefer to be behind the camera!  I live in a small town located between Cambridge, Kitchener and Brantford, Ontario  with my husband and Manx cat, Louis; both of whom have spent endless hours modelling for me.  If  you like unique, creative reportage-style photography for all matters of the heart, please give me a call.  I'm sure we will make a great match!  Lori-Anne xo

I’m honoured to be a member of the WPJA; an association representing the best of wedding photojournalism from around the world. “Wedding photographers who apply for membership in the WPJA have their portfolio sites carefully vetted before their membership is approved. Their work must reflect an expertise in capturing ‘moments’ during a wedding day.” - WPJA

Cast & Crewe Photography wouldn't be complete without the talented photography skills of my associate photographers. All wedding photography packages include me and a second photographer so that every angle and event is covered.

I own two full-frame Canon 5D, Mark III cameras with various prime lenses and one zoom. I use a mix of natural light and off-camera flash to get the results I like. My education in film, digital media and photography has given me the background and skills to tackle a wide range of lighting conditions.

I am grateful for the international awards I have received and for the publishers who have included my photos in their magazines, web sites and books. I am honoured to be a member of the Professional Wedding Photographers of Canada (PWPC) and the international group, Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA).  I also do Commercial Photography and have a Fine Art Photography web site where you can view my conceptual style portraits.

Lori, I don’t know how you do it but your photos are so much more than just pretty pictures of my wedding day. Thank you for giving your incredible talent to my very special day!

These photos bring me right back to every single moment with such power of emotion! You sure know how to recreate a story in such an elegant, honest and artistic way. I don’t even know how to explain how full my heart is.

I feel awkward and nervous, but Lori-Anne made it comfortable. She was kind and helpful and she climbed into the most awkward places to get a good angle while making sure Chris and I were relaxed. I love her. She’s the best. Thank you so much Lori-Anne for making our day so special and capturing such wonderful shots! We feel so lucky to have found you!

Lori was the videographer for my wedding in Feb 2019 and I honestly can’t say enough wonderful things about her and her work! She was incredibly kind and professional and made my husband, daughter and I very comfortable in front if the camera. Her work is absolutely stunning! I could not be happier!
