I missed my bride and groom!

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

After reviewing our AMAZING weddings this summer I discovered that I never showed off the images of ASHLEY & CHRIS.  I can’t believe that I missed this blog post and I am totally embarrassed.  I hope that all our brides and grooms had as much fun as we did this year.  We tried our hardest to give each of our weddings the best images possible with a huge variety and a quality of photography that shows professionalism and experience.  Thank you again to all our brides & grooms for the amazing wedding season this year.  I know our 2011 season will be just as fun and now that we are booking for 2012 we have something to look forward after next year.  So without further blabbing from me, here is a look inside the wedding of Ashley & Chris.

Rollin In The Hay

Tuesday, October 19th, 2010

When you let kids just be kids you can get some amazing images.  If you find the right light, with the right location, it can all come together.  Just after we finished the family session I quickly had mom and dad move away as Lucas here was in the right spot, at the right time, doing the right stuff.

A Look At Kayla & Shaun’s Wedding

Boy did it rain that day, buckets and buckets.  We got a little wet, but when you are having fun a little rain doesn’t hurt.

The Other Side Of The Family

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

Over the past decade or so we have been photographing the Kinsella family several times a year.  We always laugh when we are at their home as we call it the “Gallery Of Hodgins Photography” as they have well over 35 different framed images hanging on their walls throughout the house.  Anywhere from 5×7’s to 30 inch Canvas Gallery Wraps.  In the past it has always been Jamie & Dana or the Kinsella Side of the family, but this past Saturday we had the pleasure of photographing the Pratt side for a change (Although the location was on the Kinsella property in Azilda).  3 kids, an active  sun that couldn’t set fast enough was the challenge of the day but in the end we created some great images and we finished off the day with an amazing meal by Chef Dana.  I will posting images from this sessions through the next few weeks as there are LOADS to chose from.  Here is the LAST frame of the day as the sun was behind them illuminating the colored leaves in the trees.

Felix The Kitten

Wednesday, October 13th, 2010

Last week Sylvie brought in her kitten “Felix” to be photographed as part of our Adopt-A-Pet Program we have with the Local SPCA. Kittens are a lot harder to photograph than dogs (just read the post about our two cats here) but if you let them roam around for awhile and get their bearings you can get them to settle down enough to grab a few great images.  Thanks again Sylvie for taking advantage of the program, it’s just another way Joce and I get to say “thank you” to those who open their hearts and homes to unwanted pets.

A Moment With Ma Mere

Friday, October 8th, 2010

Jennifer new exactly what she wanted when she booked us.  She wanted a non posed, storytelling image of her Ma Mere and her 2 kids and that is exactly what we gave her.  It was as simple as asking Ma Mere to sit on the bench (because I was going to photograph her by herself) and next thing you know Owen & Lindsey climbed up and cuddled in.  I will be honest, I did  put “some” thought into it, I liked how the bench was in a bit of shade, but the sun was still poking through the leaves and skimming across Ma Mere’s hair.  I loved the way that the three of them starting interacting with each other immediately and you can tell that the three of them are very close.  We were all having so much fun with this session (Joce was quickly losing the throwing the leaves battle with the kids) we could have kept on going for hours.    Thanks again Haw family for making us part of this special time in your kids lives (and Ma Mere’s).  Like we talked about today, we look forward to photographing the Haw family next year. 🙂

Have a great Turkey Weekend. 🙂

A Couple And Their Car

Thursday, October 7th, 2010

Yesterday we had the chance (again) to photograph Chantal and her husband John.  We first photographed them 5 years ago after we photographed Chantal’s friend Samantha & Matt’s wedding in Blind River and then again this past July for Julie & Derek’s wedding in Geraldton Ontario.  We decided to meet them on the outskirts of Sudbury in Nairn Center and cruz some of the backroads from there to Worthington Ontario (my stompin grounds).  John trucked his Rat Rod with them so that we could capture a few images of the car.  Of course we photographed  the two of them with Bronx their Dog but that’s another story. 🙂 Here is a quick vid to show you a bit of the setup I used.

Ok, it’s 20 minutes later and I was going through the images and I thought I would post this one of “Bronx”

Well Now THAT Was A KICKASS Day!!!

Saturday, October 2nd, 2010

What a way to end our 2010 Wedding Season.  We kicked it off with a blast with Lynn & Ryan and their huge wedding party.  The weather was looking pretty meek for today as it was calling for a high of 6 degrees with rain and SNOW?  But I was prepared and performed the photographers sundance last night and it seemed to have paid off.  What is this photographers sundance you ask?  Well, if your a photographer, and you want great weather for your wedding, then just simple do this.  The night before the wedding, at exactly 7:17pm run around the outside of your house, 3 times, counter-clockwise, backwards.  Naked.  It works.  Anyways, back to today.  Lynn and the girls were troopers, 6 degrees out?  Bah, that’s nothing, and the guys didn’t complain one bit when we hit dynamic earth with the gusty winds.    If I could sum up this wedding in one word it would FUN!.    We were laughing all day, with the best one-liner Jocelyne ever said at a wedding “I’LL SHOW YOU A BACK ALLEY!”.  If we had liquid in our mouths it would have come out our noses.  We are sad and happy at the same time.  Sad that it’s our last wedding of the season, but happy that every one of our weddings this summer has been unique, fun and memorable.  Lynn & Ryan we want to thank the both of you and your bridal party, you were all AMAZING!  Even you douche.    We had laughs, we had rain, we had sun, we had McDonalds, we had Timmies and we even had the famous Bick Pickles Shoes make an appearance.    People are probably reading this wondering “what went on at this wedding”, well I can only tell you, you HAD to be there.

Thanks again everyone, you finished off our season with a BANG!!!  A big shout out to Barb Weir of Barb Weir Photography for coming from London to hang out and help us out.

Another Family Is On The Wall

Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

Lorna Leroy just picked up her finished family portraits and is now ready to create her wall montage.  Planning ahead  and deciding what size images, how many, and where to showcase them is all part of the Portrait Process.  Lorna knew what she wanted and with a few suggestions from Jocelyne and myself she now has what she needs to decoratively display her family photos.

Neutralized and Re-Vitalized at NSI

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

Now that everyone has their images I thought I post some more from our sessions at Niagara School Of Imaging.   It’s a lot of work teaching 20 photographers everything you know in 4 days but you roll with the punches and you do what you can right?  I probably get more out of NSI than my students do.  First it makes me stop and look at our photography and business and see what changes we can make to improve both, and second I always learn something from my students, either business strategy or photography technique.  This year was no different.  Although I was 100% drained emotionally and physically, mentally the wheels were turning the minute I started to drive home and this is a good thing.  I would like to thank my kickass class again YOU GUYS ROCKED!  Looking forward to watching your photography and business grow.
Here are a few images that from our Trash The Dress Session.  I let the students create their own images when they were in the water.
