Saturday was a great night to meet up with Cate & Sean for some engagement photos. I was still on an emotional high after attending one of my best friends wedding the night before. We hung out in the park for a couple of hours, talked about the upcoming wedding in December and took lots of photos. Cate & Sean where really easy going, Sean was showing off his artistic side and I thought I would share a couple photos of the great looking couple.

Yesterday was probably one of the most memorable weddings I have ever been a part of. Not only did I stand up for my best friend Tom in his wedding party but my wife also stood for her dear friend Kara as a bridesmaid. Tom and Kara met through us and yesterday was... well... words cannot express how great the day was so I thought I would share these two photos. The first is one of Tom as he opened a gift from Kara prior to the wedding and the second is a book that was also given to him from his future wife. The smile on his face says it all.

I have been asked back to Kingsway Arms at Clarington Centre in Bowmanville to take protraits of all the grandparents who come in with their grandkids. Last year was lots of fun and met some great families. So please come out between 11am - 3pm for your free 5x7 photo.

Mother Nature didn't cooperate much on this day, but that did not put a damper on this exciting day. Carolyn, Ryan, the families and friends where all in great spirits and the day was a huge success. Carolyn was one of the most relaxed and excited brides I have had the pleasure of shooting. Bubbly from the moment I arrived until I said good night.

Wow has the weather ever been crazy this summer. On the afternoon I arrived at Becky's house around 1pm on July 26 I couldn't see two cars in front of me with the dark skies and the pouring rain. Shortly after that rain storm and a full morning of rain weather gods gave us a beautiful sunny day. And other than the wet grass at the families beautiful home in Inisfil the day was perfect. The property was stunning! I was really excited about this wedding, as I am for all weddings I have the pleasure of attending. This was the first wedding where the bride and groom had scheduled to meet and take photos before the service. The moment that they first set eyes on each other was amazing, and the few minutes they had alone was priceless.
We just recently sold my late mothers house, and our agent Keith Williams (who I would highly recommend), asked me if I would be interested in taking some pictures of his team. I never really understood why agents have there photo on business cards, however Keith said he wanted a little something different and not in a studio. So we went off to Cullen Gardens in Whitby, where there are some old heritage homes and one of my favorite places to take pictures in Whitby.
July 19th has arrived. I went up to Jen's mothers beautiful home in Uxbridge to meet up with the girls and Jen's family. Then off to Whitby and my first wedding at the historical Trafalgar Castle, followed by the short trip to Oshawa and the newly renovated Jubilee Pavilion. Wow what a beautiful setting for all three locations. If only the weather would have cooperated a bit more.
