When you put together an artful historian and an engineer who loves light you get THIS right here - The perfect recipe for synchronized camera magic. 

 

It's true that years of working together have given us an advantage. We know what to look for and we're helping each other to reach the vision. But our strength has been our differences. We don't like the same things and that's just widened our breadth.  My love for light is richer and he'd probably say I've made him more awesome too ;)

 
 

Our work is a reflection of the way we approach all things - as an adventure! Every couple, family, and business has their own flow and their own vibe. Getting to know you is a large part of how we get great images. We come in with open eyes and minds, like we would any new place we visit, and look for the heart.

All you need to do is be you!  

 
ANGELA DURANTE DUKÁT Positivity-magnet, people-lover, PhD, artist, dreamer, receiver! I'm the fire and voice here at the studio and the primary photographer. I love vintage anything, upcycling, horses, paintings and good coffee. I love my schoolhouse and only leave for shoots or travel or people I love. I want my work to matter so I only do work that matters.  I want my portraits to tell stories, to show real and meaningful moments, to ignite and encourage people. It's a tall order but I'm on a mission.

LÁSZLO DUKAT Although most of his work is behind the scenes, László co-shoots weddings and large projects and creates all the printed work that leaves the studio. He loves film more than digital and won't admit it because he doesn't want to hurt digital's feelings. He loves the darkroom and we love his purist spirit. On top of being a working dad, he is also project managing our #SchoolhouseRevival, he's our resident beekeeper and the only one brave enough to go up to the belfry.

We've entangled our life passions with purposefulness so that everything we do is moving us toward our aspirations - to make meaningful art, to adventure-travel our way through the world, and to help our kids become people that we'll someday look up to. Whether we're in our home studio or on the road Dukát Studios has become a meaningful way to help others move closer to THEIR aspirations. We're recording an artful history for the couples, families and businesses that we work with and that's something we're really proud of.

 

CREATIVITY IS LOVE.

I'm proud of our yearly heart projects - community engagement, art creation, idea sharing, growth, bliss! 

 

in studio and on location

In 2017 we moved our studio to gorgeous Uxbridge, Ontario where we fell in love with a dilapidated old schoolhouse in need of love and a vision. If you know us, then you've already encountered our love for transforming seemingly unredeemable homes into inspired spaces. This one, however, I intend to keep! We've lovingly named it our #schoolhouserevival. Within months of moving in, we were shooting in the original 1920s schoolroom and moved on to modernize the small industrial stairwell and gymnasium added on in the 60s. With traditional and modern studio spaces and surrounded by acres of rolling hills, our schoolhouse is a perfect peaceful location for shooting, with all the conveniences of home. 

 When it's time to shoot outdoors or on-site the studio packs up and goes mobile - from storefronts and offices to waterfalls and deserts. Nowhere is off limits!  After all, on the road is where we started as photographers and despite our love for our schoolhouse, we're always up for adventure!
