Cherish & Clint Are Getting Married.

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

Next month we will be documenting the wedding of Cherish & Clint (on a Thursday, a first for us).  Over the past few years we have gotten to know and even hang out with this amazing couple. You have seen images from their maternity session and then their first family session from the past few years and last week we brought them out for a quick engagement session.  Their wedding should be a real blast as these two are so relaxed and easy going that I am positive the whole day will be the same.  Cherish, Clint, we look forward to hanging out and creating some outstanding wedding images for you next month.

A Sudbury (Winter) Engagement

Monday, November 1st, 2010

Jennifer, Charles and Coco braved the Northern Ontario weather, through sleet and hail, snow and rain, they made their way downtown to enjoy a quick, cold fun filled engagement session.  Oh boy was it cold and snowing, but it did make for a great session.  Even though I had to have them  hold their breaths while I tripped the shutter button they did discover a new talent of holding your breath and smiling at the same time.  It was Coco though who really didn’t seem amused that we took him out of his cozy warm truck to be involved in the whole process.

A Boy A Girl A Bike and a DRAGON?

Thursday, August 19th, 2010

Tuesday night we headed out to Trout lake to photograph the Chaters Family and the engagement session of Andrea & Nik.  After driving 400 miles on a dirt road, through Sasquatch invested forests, up and down death defying mountains and across shark infested marshes, we arrived at the beautiful property.  We worked hard, we worked fast as the clouds were rolling in and shutting down our daylight right before our eyes.  After creating some beautiful family portraits of the Chaters (blog post to follow) we then started the engagement portion of the session with a dragon.  That’s right, Woody the bearded dragon.  Note: To all fellow photographers looking to photograph a bearded dragon.  Do not, I repeat do not convince the owner to take pictures outside with no leash.  Why?  Because they run away that is why.  Little does Nik know but as I watched Woody mad dash towards the woods my heart sunk to the bottom of my stomach where it then tried very hard exit my body.  What would be the chances of finding Woody after it rushed into woods?  ummmmm. I would say zero.  Good thing  Nik is quick and on his game as Woody never had a chance leave the grass. 🙂 PHEW!.

As the sun was fading fast in the horizon and the clouds rolled in, we headed down to the lake to take advantage of the lovely waterfront creating some stunning images of  Nik & Andrea.

As Joce and I were leaving to head back home, I remembered Nik’s bike under the tarp and quickly asked “would you like a cool photo of your bike?”
Of course he said YES PLEASE.

EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE A PICTURE OF THEIR BIKE.

So for you Nik, even though you have crossed over to the darkside and bought a PS3

We had a blast guys, and your family is wonderful.  Looking forward to seeing you this Saturday. 🙂

Vickie & Justin Are Getting Married

Wednesday, August 11th, 2010

We just photographed a quick impromptu engagement session for my good friend Justin and his fiance Vickie.  They will be married this May in Hawaii at the Turtle Bay Resort and unfortunately Joce and I cannot attend because of previous commitments.  Fortunately though we were honored to photograph the two of them for their wedding invitations.  Vickie was a natural in front of the camera with stunning eyes and striking features……….Justin?……………….not so much.   Just kidding Justin.  The both of them photographed like they were made for each, each complimenting the other (Vicki more than Justin), just kidding again, I just can’t help myself ever since Justin pulled a very funny joke on me way back when.  I might as well tell you all now as it is very humorous.

Justin used to live in the apartment below me many years ago so we would hang out at each others places alot.  One time while I was at his place, he asks if I would like some “Beef Jerky”.  “SURE” I say, I love beef jerky.  After chewing on it for several minutes I had to admit to him  “Jeeez Just, this jerky tastes like #@%$”.  He then grabs the package back out of the cupboard and looks at it saying  “Really?  The dogs really seem to enjoy it”    Thanks for the dog treats buddy.

Anyways, we a great time last night, hanging out, laughing, photographing, hitting up Dairy Queen and checking out Justin & Vickie’s new home.  Thanks again you two, we had a great time, and hopefully soon we can get together again.

Sudbury Engagement With Nature

Thursday, June 17th, 2010

Who says photographers don’t get their exercise?  Not only do you get to burn some calories but you also can come across some great shooting spots at the  Lake Laurentian Conservation Area.  That is where we just finished Krista & Jeff’s Engagement hike and nature walk.  We had the whole place to ourselves except for a few mosquitoes and deer flies (minus two now).  Every 20 or so feet I would stop them to capture a few more images where the light was spread out through the trees, or grass was high and the trail wide.  Some of the best images from this shoot is when I wasn’t really shooting at all.  I would be changing lenses and they would be snuggling up together or kissing and I would quickly grab the shot before they knew I was photographing them.  So many times I would tell them to stop as they just had that fleeting moment in a perfect capture.  These to “mold” together very well.  What does that mean?  It means when they are wrapped in each others arm, they are like one.  It’s soooooo easy to photograph couples like  this, you just can’t go wrong.

New Sudbury Engagement

Tuesday, June 15th, 2010

Along with most of the wedding locations, Kayla & Shaun’s engagement session took place in New Sudbury.  Sometimes it’s great to find new spots closer to home then heading to Bell Park or Downtown Sudbury.  You would be amazed at some of the cool spots you can find if you look hard enough.  This spot gave us the perfect pre-sunset backlighting for the soft etheral look and is only a 3 minute walk from Barrydown.  On their wedding day we will be heading to a variety of different locations in the New Sudbury area before we make our way to Falconbridge (another part that has some outstanding photographic possibilities).  This will be a great change of pace and Jocelyne and myself are looking forward to creating some more wonderful images of this young in love couple.  Thanks Shaun & Kayla for the great session.

Another Sudbury Engagement

Tuesday, June 8th, 2010

Just got back from Lynn & Ryan’s engagement session.  Their wedding will be our last of our 2010 season and we are kicking it off with a bang.  From
Sudbury to Dowling and everything in between we plan on taking the bridal party of 18 to every nook and cranny we can find.  If this couple laughs half as much on the wedding day as they did on this engagement session I know we will create some amazing images.

Sudbury To St.Lucia

Thursday, June 3rd, 2010

At least that is where Ashley & Chris will be spending their honeymoon this August.    Joce and I just finished photographing their engagement session this evening and the talks continued on after about St. Lucia.  As most of you know that is where Joce and I got married and where we also met our good friend Kirk Elliott.   We had a blast photographing them this evening, dodging dirt bikes & dust clouds we managed to create a great variety of images.  I take it as a true compliment when a guy (or groom) says “Hey, that was actually a lot of fun.” because usually it’s the guys that take a bit to warm up to the photography session.   If you think the engagement session is fun WAIT until the wedding day, it’s an engagement session on steroids.

Thanks again  Ashley & Chris, we are very excited for your upcoming wedding and we look forward to creating more stunning images and of course hear all about your honeymoon in St. Lucia.

P.S.  For those of you who are planning on going to St. Lucia, get certified, St. Lucia has amazing diving. 🙂

Sunny Sudbury Engagement

Thursday, May 6th, 2010

The clouds were out yesterday and it looked like rain, but yesterday evening turned out to be full of sunshine.  It was a perfect night for Leslie and Sav’s engagement session.  We love finding new spots in the New Sudbury area for photographing our engagements and you would be very surprised at some of these spots and just how small the area we are shooting in really is.  We always tell our clients “trust us”,  as we sometimes are looking for a background that is no larger than 5 ft wide.

I love using the edge of sunlight to rim our subjects hair and outlining their bodies.  Bringing in a reflector to lighten up the eyes is a must  in  my opinion and if you can’t see the catchlights then you need to move the subject or the reflector.    This was the second engagement session in a row where I got to talk about fishing (Leslie is another fish whisperer as well).  Nothing like throwing my 2 loves together.  If only I could have my own photography fishing show.  Ahhhh to dream. 🙂  Thanks again you two, we had a blast, looking forward to documenting your wedding which will be extra special as it will be my birthday.

And your little dog too! || Sudbury Engagement

Tuesday, May 4th, 2010

We just finished photographing the engagement of Sheri & Mark.  They will be married this June right here in Sudbury.  Mark and I have known each other for years, going to the same highschool, hanging around the same friends, and I casting a few lines in the water every once and awhile (he is another fish whisperer).  We photographed a in a great little spot in New Sudbury keeping things close to home.  I  know Mark is not one for photographs, but I have to give him credit as he was all smiles for this session, even though he seemed to sulk a bit because he didn’t get to hold the dog’s leash.  Speaking of which, their little Pomeranian Sly was also on hand for a few photo ops.  Thanks again Mark & Sheri, it was great catching up and talking shop….fish shop. 🙂
