The Wedding of Lindsay and Chris

This past Saturday I enjoyed spending the day with Lindsay & Chris.  This vibrant young couple was up beat and full of smiles all day which made my job really easy!  The ceremony and reception were held at a local banquet hall however the photographer's dream is to have great weather and a beautiful venue outdoors to shoot and Saturday did not disappoint.  Following the ceremony Lindsay & Chris hopped in their stretch SUV and headed to the Oshawa Valley Botanical Gardens at Children's Arena.  I managed to capture a variety of shots of the families, bridal party and most importantly Lindsay & Chris.  The connection they share is obvious in the quiet whispers they spoke to each other in between shots and their genuine bright smiles all day long.  It was a fun day filled with laughter and great opportunities for pictures.  Here are a few of my favorites.  Enjoy!
Thanks David

Happy Birthday Leah

This blog update comes with both good news and sad news.  See I first met Carolyn and Ryan back in 2007 when we first talked about the their wedding in 2008.  This was a big step in my business, this was the first true client that wasn't associated to any friends.  So as a fairly new business this was an important step.  If you have been following the blog I have been meeting up with Carolyn, Ryan and baby Leah shortly after she was born.  And we have been meeting every 3 or 4 months to photograph Leah's growth during the changes of the season.  So the first year project has come to an end, that's the sad news.  The good news is that my family has made some great friends, and we had a lot of fun capturing the last session at my home.  Hope you enjoy the photos.

AJ and Mike August 6, 2011

I will admit it - shooting weddings is a lot of fun.  But when you get a chance to spend the day with a great couple, a fantastic bridal party and when the weather surprisingly cooperates the experience is that much better.  Shooting the wedding of Adrienne and Mike this past Saturday was a lot of fun and for so many reasons!  First of all the bride, AJ, was stunning and her bridesmaids had me laughing like crazy from the moment we met.  The groom, Mike, was laid back and like his groomsmen, was easy going.  The wedding ceremony and reception were held at Nestleton Waters Inn so the venue allowed for a variety of shots whether we opted for inside or out.  Overall the day was really enjoyable and the little surprises here and there from the guests at the ceremony, the groom at the reception or the bride and maid of honor wishing their dad happy birthday with a very unique cake, made it unforgettable.  I love my job.

I think Mike knows AJ very well.
The guests surprised the bride and groom with a sign - how cute!

Thank you AJ & Mike
