The Leyes

I was really happy when Emily gave me a call. I first took pictures of Emily, Christian and Colton back in April 2008. This time we were getting together with Christian's brother, Mike, and his family as well. Mike and his wife Jen have a perfect little family as well with Brady and Myanna. We met at local park in Courtice on Avondale which proved to be perfect with a playground for the kids to use between posing for photos.

Here are a few of my favorite pictures.

The Walker-Welch Family

I just love my job...

The other day our friends Lisa and Stephen called. They were going to Lisa's grandmother's 80th birthday party and needed an updated family picture. I arrived at the house with only a few minutes to shoot- but the family was ready! All in their matching white shirts they are one of the most beautiful families you can meet both in body and spirit. Smiles were huge and laughter surrounded us with Brooklyn and Quartez.

The Wedding of Mike & Tania

It was a crisp autumn day- perfect for a photographer but chilly for a bridal party! The entire wedding for Mike and Tania was held at 4 Season's Golf and Country Club in Claremont. Right from the start the day was filled with excitement and energy. Mike and Tania are such a well matched pair, loving and supportive of one another, and there was no more obvious reflection of this as when they exchanged their vows...

The bridal party was great and although the temperature was cool they were more than willing to take some shots outside capturing the colours of the season. Ever the gentlemen the groomsmen were without their jackets more than with them while outside however overall Mother Nature seemed to be on our side. Great day filled with great memorable moments.

The Wedding of Dalton and Stacey

Stacey & Dalton's wedding day proved to be the culmination of their 9 year courtship and as one would expect the day was full of excitement and even a few nerves. However as Stacey rounded the turn into the tent where she and Dalton would marry the nerves washed away and a calm was felt as they were together as bride and groom before a room full of their friends and family.

I captured some pre-ceremony shots at Dalton's parents house. It was very laid back and relaxing which set the tone for an enjoyable day. The ceremony was intimate and once completed we headed outside to a wedding garden for family and bridal party shots. Stacey and Dalton were ready and were hustling family members in and out of shots and had others 'on deck' for the next series. It was great! The bridal party was very friendly and once it was time to just spend time with the bride and groom the easy going attitude first established in the morning was still flowing free.

Overall it was a great day. The weather cooperated, the mood was joyous but relaxed and Stacey and Dalton proved to be a great couple willing to try or do anything spur of the moment to capture a shot. Thanks for letting me be a part of the day!
