What I love about being a photographer is sharing what I do with people I love. Amanda and I grew up together. And as adults, I began my business in Barrie, and she moved to England, where she met her wonderful Adam.
I was so incredibly honoured she asked me to photograph this day for her. And of course I said yes. They were married August 2nd, 2012, and are fast approaching their first anniversary. It was a beautiful location in Niagara-on-the-Lake, at the Riverbend Inn.
It was a small gathering, and just simply perfect.
Here are a few from the day.
Shooting Ann Green, of Studio Bliss, on Kempenfelt Bay proved to be a very cold and very rewarding experience. As Nat’s assistant I find myself if all sorts of odd situations, and this shoot was no exception. Chasing Canadian geese into the shot and trying to convince local ice fisherman to be in our photos are just some examples of some of the things I had to do. Ann was exactly what I expected her to be; extremely warm, genuine and passionate about what she does and I believe that Nat’s photos capture these qualities perfectly.
Just had to share a couple shots from this session this afternoon. “P” was one of those little guys who you just can’t get enough of. He had so much personality!
Here are just a couple sneak peeks from the session.
I love that I get to see the history and growth of a family. It’s incredibly special. On top of it, I have the opportunity to document it for these clients. A&D were married June 2011, and brought their beautiful little girl in for her first photo session. This family is always laughing, and simply having a great time. And this photo of their wee one is indicative of their story.
In a few very short weeks, Peter & Krista are getting married. A beautiful winter wedding at The MacLaren Art Centre. And I”m extremely excited. This couple has a very special bond.
When we set up an engagement session, we always start by asking the couple what they like to do together. To my surprise, this couple answered with “we love to bake!” Well, actually, Krista bakes, Peter eats what’s baked.
Nevertheless, we came up with a fantastic fall idea to go apple picking, and bake a pie. But unfortunately, every time we booked it, it was miserable out. So eventually, we decided to bake something else, since the apple season was clearly over…….. and then it rained again. But this time, it didn’t matter. This couple can simply be together, and you can see the chemistry.
Here is the outcome of our playful and delicious E session.
Last night was the wedding of a very special couple – Jen & Nishan. They have had a rough year leading up to their wedding, but you will never see them without a smile on their faces. They exude happiness, and it’s contagious. Thought I would share one of my favourite shots from last night. Keep in mind it was – 10 celcius out, windy, and Jen was in little tiny ballet flats…… in the snow. What a trooper!
Custom home builders are wonderful to work with. They’re creative, have a vision, but step out the way and let me do my thing.
John and Heather at Meridian Custom Homes were incredible. Not to mention, having the opportunity to photograph such beautiful designs made it very easy for me. They truly care about the small details, which is why clients are always recommending them.
Take a peak at some of their recent work.
Every Once in a while, I have the opportunity to break out of my shell. Partly from the challenge of a location I’ve never been to, and partly because of a unique wedding experience. Lev & Diana were married at La Primavera this past June 2012. But hours before we did a fantastic shoot down in The Toronto Beaches area. On the beach, and on Queen street East. They brought along their good friends who were visiting from Israel, and it only added to the excitement. Once the evening started, I quickly realized, these people know how to party!! It was constant dancing from 7 PM and on. Have a peak at some of their photos from their incredible day!
