What can I say about Katherine and Scott? Well, they are one of the nicest and most genuine wedding couples I have ever had the pleasure of photographing. Their wedding took place at the Thunder Bay Marina, and it ended up being the perfect weather. It wasn't too hot and it was overcast which meant the lighting was absolutely ideal for me to document such a special day.Read More
It was another amazing turnout for this years Pride Parade and I was so happy that I was actually around to take part in it. Usually this time of year is hit and miss for me with weddings and all. So, with that being said, I packed up my camera and headed down to Waverley Park where everything the event was starting. I didn't have much time but I managed to get some candids before the parade actually started and then before I knew it, everyone began marching down Red River Road. From that point on, it was just a matter of keeping up and finding moments along the way.Read More
I'm so lucky to be able to meet amazing couples and families each time a have a session. This time around I spent 30 minutes capturing some moments between Tricia and Darren. It was somewhat of a last minute session as Tricia's original photographer who they have been using for quite some time, wasn't available. Luckily, I had some spots open this weekend, and I'm so glad I did.Read More
It was a quick and somewhat cold session with Anna, John and their two boys, but we managed to come away with some really good photos, despite the weather. Even Owen and Nolan were great and very patient. As with most sessions in the winter on cold days, I did my best to keep everyone moving, not staying in one spot too long, yet not rushing anything. It helped that Anna and her family were great models. It just goes to show you, that despite the winter weather, there is no excuse not get out there and get some photos done!Read More
My wedding with Lindy and Tyler started at the Murphy house, which just so happens to be one of the more beautiful homes in the city. I have only ever done one other wedding there about 4 years ago and it was inside. So, I was very excited when Lindy and Tyler decided to have an outdoor wedding.Read More
Since I missed last years Festival of Colours, I really wanted to try and see it this time around. The whole weekend was super busy with photography and Sunday was no exception. Anne and I managed to still go check it out for about 20 minutes and I was able to capture a few good moments.
If it happens again next year, and I'm available, I will definitely spend more time and come a bit more prepared. Until then, these photos will have to do. :)Read More
Looking back on the beginning of August now that it seems Fall is now upon us, I really do miss the hot weather, even though I often complained at the time. I also remember the beginning of August because it was my first wedding of that month, Jessica and Jonathan's. My day started with Jonathon and the boys in their hotel room at the Prince Arthur.
As soon as I arrived I could feel a bit of nervous tension but otherwise everyone was super relaxed. I soon learned that all the guys had a great sense of humour (as well as the ladies), which would make my day that much more fun. In typical fashion all the guys slowly got ready, helping each other out and joking along the way. I was able to get some really great candid moments in the short amount of time I was them.Read More
Thunder Bay has gotten so vibrant with events and so many other things going on throughout the summer, that sometimes it is hard to keep track. This past Wednesday saw the last night for the Live on the Waterfront series, which took place at the Marina. It saw three bands take the stage to a large crowd of on lookers. Best of all, it was all free.Read More
BrewHa is one of those events, at least for me, that is on the top of my list for the summer. Luckily, I actually had some of the weekend free to attend and take photos. So, not only did a get to try some amazing beer with my wife Anne, but I also get to meet and photograph a lot of happy people.Read More
This past Sunday was yet another scorching summer day but that didn't stop Heather and her family from joining for a portrait session down at the Marina. We decided to walk around the outer portion of the Marina which is usually a little bit more quiet, and plus there are always small pockets of shade here and there to stop and do photos.Read More
Well, after some initial rescheduling because of the weather, Katelyn and her family joined me at the Marina this evening for an awesome photo session. Katelyn actually contacted me a while ago to purchase a mini session gift certificate for Mother's Day. We had already met previously too, because I photographed her sister Courtney's wedding just last year. Suffice it to say I was really excited to spend some time with the O'Connor's again, especially for a portrait session.Read More
Canada turned 150 yesterday which means I knew I had to go downtown at some point and see some of the festivities and people. The original plan was to go to Old Fort William first and then the marina, but the day just went by so fast that I only made caught the last couple hours of the day. So, with that being said, I tried to get as many photos as I could.Read More
