Sara, Greg, and the awesome.

Sara and Greg met up with us in Peterborough for a couples shoot. They are tons of fun, with a quirky sense of humour that meant we all got along swimmingly. As you can see, they brought the awesome to all their images.

I got to try out a few locations that I've been eyeing......

Including my latest graffitti find.
(I don't know who Meco is, but I can't help but feel he is in big trouble.)
They were also very patient while we played with our flash units. Shawn and I have been working on using off camera flash, so it was fabulous to have some willing models to work with.
And then, there was this. Greg actually wore this as a Halloween costume a few years ago.
It has become a running joke between the two of them, and it turns out that Greg has
always thought it would make for an awesome image. The best part is that Greg had
to change into the costume, and walk a block through downtown Peterborough to get
to this park, which was blocked by construction. Sara and I could not make eye contact -
we were trying our hardest not to burst out laughing.


Love this one!

More Awesome.

And, finally, some cuteness to end the shoot:

Thanks again for spending some time with us, Sara and Greg! We had a ton of fun!
(PS - Thanks for stopping by - don't forget to leave these two a comment!)

Jane and Tim are married!

Jane and Tim were married this past weekend. The ceremony took place at the Catholic Church in Young's Point....

...and was officiated by the priest who ran the church when Jane was a child. Loved that they could have that connection to their family history.

Everyone danced down the aisle at the end!
I love it when we get to shoot with kids! As you can see, the ring bearer took his job so
seriously he carried the empty ring boxes out of the church with him.
The reception took place at Alumni House at Trent University, and was
catered by Parkhill on Hunter. Yummy.
Shots with the wedding party.
And then we snuck away with the bride and groom for a few portraits.
A classical guitarist played while guests mingled.

Love the detail shots - gorgeous centrepiece flowers!

The bicycle cake topper is a nod to Tim, who owns a bike shop.

And, finally, a moment we caught during speeches. The newlyweds
needed a moment to confer with their notes.

Jane and Tim, thank you for making us a part of your special day! We both
thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you and your families, and we send you
both best wishes for much happiness together.

Barry and Darren are married!

Barry and Darren were married on August 1 at a private estate near East Gwillumbury. (Where, incidentally, the World's Greatest Carrot Festival takes place on August 22. We were a little sad that it wasn't going on RIGHT NOW so that we could do some shooting there, but such is life...)

The ceremony was attended by family and a few close friends, including Spike (above), who was delighted to learn that the car ride was over. The guys enlisted their moms in helping to get their boutonnieres attached.

And then it was time for the ceremony! Barry and Darren worked with their officiant to write the vows, and it was a lovely reflection of their personalities and style as a couple.

Saying their vows - love how happy they both look!

All of the guests gathered together - isn't this a pretty location for a wedding?

Family portrait with Spike the Wonder Dog.

I rode back to the party with the newlyweds, who indulged my photographic whims by pulling over for some shots whenever I asked them too. (Thanks, guys!)

Ring shot, still life style.

Barry and Darren, thank you again for inviting me to be a part of your wedding. The day was lovely, intimate, and fun. Hope you are enjoying your honeymoon and looking forward to seeing you both soon!
