Wedding of Colby & Stephanie

 Shooting the wedding of Stephanie and Colby did not seem like work - it was just plain fun!  Mother Nature cooperated with us and we managed to take some great shots at a variety of locations.  Starting off at Stephanie`s parent`s home we could tell the bridesmaids were excited and ready for a great day.  All Saints`Church, a gorgeous renovated church following a fire a few years ago, proved to be a great spot for shots inside and out.  

Although the bridal party was big everyone was great to work with and when we went to Cullen Gardens, despite the weather being a little chilly, we captured some group shots amidst beautiful autumn colours!  Deer Creek is always picturesque and the spirit of relaxed fun continued.  

Stephanie and Colby were up for any shot, any pose, any scene and they were fantastic.  It was an enjoyable day with a super group.  I hope they are as happy with their photos as I am.

 This is one of my favorites.  Colby started the dance with his mom in a formal style taking him moms hand, when the dance progressed he could sense the emotion his mother was feeling, and just brought her in tight to hold her close to him as the dance came to an end.

Family Portraits

 Each year around this time I drag my family out to take some pictures at this little park close to the home.  Its a wonderful like park with a small forest of Maple Trees.  We get the kids to sit on the same rock and use the colour of the trees as a backdrop.  Its great to see how this little rock years ago was huge compared to the kids, and its extra special to see how they have grown in comparison to the rock.
Here are a few of my favorites.


Portrait Session with the Taylors


This family session was a lot of fun, Tanya and I first met a few years ago when she was the hairstylist for my first paid wedding shoot.  Sure it was a friend and didn't pay very much but it was a great day for me. And on that day I met Tanya and we have been friends ever since.  So when Tanya said she wanted to take some photos with her full family I knew it would be a fun day.  Not only is the family beautiful, they are a lot of fun.
Here are a few of my favorite from the day.

 Thanks for a fun time, David

E Session with Colby and Stephanie

Stephanie and Colby invited me to their new house to take some engagement photos.  Talk about being busy, buying a new home and moving in just weeks before your wedding is gutsy, this is one couple who could handle it.  For a young couple they really do have a good handle of what being in a relationship is all about.
Here are a few of my favorite pics from the day.  The wedding will take place on Oct. 20th in and around the Durham area.

Thank-you David
