Where do I begin with Nicole and Terrence's wedding? It was such an epic and fun day I guess I should just start from the beginning. Upon arriving at their beautiful property on the outskirts of Thunder Bay I parked my car and strapped my cameras on my shoulders. I didn't look back after that because the day just flew by with so many great moments.Read More
Most of the time I have long wedding days, anywhere between 7 to 10 hours. Those usually allow a lot of time to capture a ton of moments and great photos. Well, my recent wedding with Laura and Beau had me photographing them for only 2 hours. The challenge with short wedding days like theirs, is that I really have to make sure I'm on my game to get a lot of quality photos in such a short amount of time.Read More
I didn't really know what to expect going into Maureen and Ryan's wedding, which took place this past weekend in their backyard. It was going to be a short wedding as they only had me for 2 hours so I knew I had to work extra hard to make sure I capture enough moments without really forcing anything. Well, lucky for me, a lot happened in that 2 hours and it may go down as my most unique wedding to date.
As soon as I arrived, I was greeted by a very inquisitive family dog who just wanted someone to throw his tennis ball. Sadly, I just didn't have the time to do so, instead I took a nice photo. I then made my way around the property a bit and inspected where everything would be taking place. As soon as I found the tent where the ceremony was going to be, I noticed a huge lifted truck painted green with skulls all around. Right then I knew, it was going to be a very different wedding.Read More
It's always nice when the winter weather cooperates with an outdoor photo session. For my latest set of photos it was at Mari Lynn's house, specifically in her backyard. She had a nice big backyard with a few great spots to take photos with. It goes to show you though, that you really don't need much to get family portraits done. It was a bit chilly out, but nothing like my last session at the Marina. Plus, everyone came directly from inside the house so it was a quick transition.Read More
My latest photo session was with Heather and her family out at their house off John Street Road. They had a ton of property so we made sure to take advantage of that along with the beautiful snow covering everything. We only had 30 minutes to work with so once everyone was ready we set up in front of their old barn and used it as a wonderful backdrop. Luckily it was just nice enough where everyone could get away with not wearing jackets.Read More
It was a very busy weekend, with a lot of different photo shoots going on. Prior to my session with Erin and her family I photographed some of the Oktoberfest at the CLE grounds. When I was driving there, I noticed how extremely foggy it was out, but for only half of the city, which was quite the site. I was scheduled to take photos of Erin and her family for 6:00pm and I was hoping that it stayed foggy, and it did.Read More
One of the reasons I enjoy photography so much, especially portrait photography, is because I get to meet so many great families. You never know what to expect but I am always pleasantly surprised. My session with Allison and her family, was definitely no exception. Everyone was very easy going and the kids were just full of energy.Read More
It was only a couple weeks ago but Katrina and Ed's Wedding Day is still fresh in my mind. The day turned out to be one of the nicest so far of the summer, although, it was fairly hot. But, there is no way I will ever complain about hot weather in this city with winter always around the corner.
Katrina and Ed's wedding took place at their new house out on Hawkeye Lake. For those of you that haven't been to this lake it is absolutely gorgeous. I had been to their house a year prior but that was for engagement photos and the house wasn't quite done then. Seeing it for the first time with all the guests and family gathered around was quite the site. Of course, the backdrop of the Hawkeye Lake definitely helped set the mood.Read More
My latest portrait session was one of the most interesting ones of the season. It was another large family shoot with even more kids this time and even more energy! Sometimes I wish I could watch my shoots afterwards and see just how much running around I did. I’ll never complain though as the photos when you are on the go often turn into some of the best candid photos.Read More
