Our Clients Are Our Friends

Yesterday (on our day off) Joce and I had the pleasure of hanging out with our good friends Cindy & Gaston.  We opted for a motorcycle ride to Manitoulin Island, a trip that we have planned for a few months now, but unfortunately has been rained out everytime.  Even yesterday as we left our driveway, the showers started, but by the time we got into Lively the skies cleared and we had beautiful weather for the rest of the day.  We have said this before and we LOVE the fact that is keeps getting proven to us year after year, our clients are our friends.  We met Cindy & Gaston (and their lovely family) when we photographed their wedding at the Saenchiur Flechey Resort just over 3 years ago.  I remember being at their reception after we were all said and done and the both of them sat at our table talking to us for quite some time.  This was their wedding, with all their family and friends, but they sat at our table and we chatted for a good 45 minutes.  I also remember after being there for the first 15 minutes as Cindy was getting ready, looked at Joce and I and said “I am SO GLAD you two are here”.  Little things like this stick with us for a long long time.

After the wedding was all said and done we agreed that we would get together another time and “just hang out”.  It’s hard you know, to find the time.  We are busy, they are busy (running a successful dairy farm and raising 3 wonderful children) but we seem to  make time at least once a year.  It isn’t a lot, but we do jam pack it with memorable experiences.   The next time we met was at their farm where Cindy & Gaston took us out horseback riding on their property.  I can ride a motorcycle, a horse?…………..not so much, but it was fun, and after that we photographed their family portrait as the sun was setting and the wind was dying down.

It’s amazing how they change in such little time.  These girls are growing up to be beautiful ladies.

You never know, I might be in this business long enough to photograph their weddings, wouldn’t THAT be something?  It’s amazing how we get to see these ladies grow up year after year, and Jocelyne and myself feel very privileged to be the ones to capture those transitions.  But let’s not forget about Cindy & Gaston eh?  We had a great ride yesterday checking out Bridal Veil Falls, having fish ‘N’ chips of course and let’s not forget Farquars ice cream “TIGER TAIL” (that’s my favorite), finishing it off with some Hodgy’s Famous BBQ and Cindy’s famous Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips.

Luckily I remembered to pack the Canon G11 in the saddle bag.

Let’s hope that year does not go by between visits OK?

    Isn’t it nice when your clients become friends after being great fans? I have had the pleasure of knowing couples grow into life partners, then families, and being BLESSED to be a small part of it all! In the end, it’s all about relationship.

  2. Cindy and Gaston Says:

    Well my dear friends, tears came to my eyes when i saw this posting. Tears of every emotions i think, gratitude, pleasure, accomplishment, joy……….i could go on and on i think. When we met you it was like a peice to the puzzle we needed to finish the whole picture of what our wedding was all about for us. We truely hoped that you would remain a part of the story we are living, and for you to put into those words meant so much to us. We love your art, your visons, your passion and your stories!! It would be pretty cool if you were to shoot one of the girls wedding, or all three!!! The story you have done with the girls really touched me! wow!!!!
    We LOVED our ride to the island with you both, and we will do it again for sure. And i will continue to bring banana bread!! We can say the same to you guys, “Our Photographers Our Friends”. Usually you hire a photographer, get your pictures, you move on…….not with you, and that makes our story that more special. Every little thing that you both do, means a lot to a lot of people, and sometimes we don’t say this enough, THANK YOU. Can’t wait for the next trip!!!
