Published in WedLuxe Magazine!

How exciting! WedLuxe is one of the leading high-end wedding publications in Canada. I’m so honoured that they’ve chosen to publish an editorial on a wedding I photographed last year – Kerri & Ben’s wedding in Niagara-on-the-Lake! You can see the editorial here: www.wedluxe.com/index.cfm?id=7145 …or have a look at your local newsstand. The editorial is featured in WedLuxe’s “Real-life Weddings” gallery on page 64 of the Summer/Fall 2008 issue. This section highlights the unique and/or high-end details of the featured weddings, so the focus is more on the details than the portraits, but if you’re interested in seeing more from that wedding, be sure to check out Kerri & Ben’s blog entry or their engagement session entry....

Helping to end poverty and injustice…through print sales!

Hey everyone, It may sound silly, but I’ve always dreamed of being a millionaire philanthropist. Well, I’m a long way from the millionaire part but I’d like to get a head start by donating partial print proceeds to one of my favourite charities: Oxfam. Starting today, for every 8×10 or larger print ordered, I’ll donate $2 to Oxfam Canada. I’ll hold onto the donation until the end of the year and will report back here with the total amount we’ve raised! For those of you not familiar with Oxfam, here’s a brief description of what they do: “Oxfam Canada works with people to secure their basic human rights, combining support to long-term development and humanitarian responses with research, advocacy and campaigning against the root causes of poverty and injustice.” For more information about this great organization, please take a look at their website at www.oxfam.ca On a related note, some friends of ours who got married back in 2006 (Sherri & Lee) had a really cool idea for one of their gift registries. Oxfam Unwrapped has a wedding gift registry option, so instead of just buying the happy couple more household items, you can – in their name – buy safe drinking water for 50 people, food growing packs, text books for impoverished children, care for an orphan or vulnerable child, and lots more. It looks like Oxfam Unwrapped Canada doesn’t have the wedding registry option, but the New Zealand one linked above and the U.K. sites do, so if this sounds like something you or your soon-to-be-married friends would be interested, I hope you’ll take a look. I look forward to providing you all with beautiful images of your wedding day and at the same time working together to help make the world a better place!...

Photographer Registry

I’m happy to announce a new service that can help me provide you with the photography package you’ve always dreamed of. Do you want to add a custom-designed Fine Art Book album to your package but your budget won’t allow for it? Or perhaps you’d like an engagement session or DVD slideshow? If so, then signing up for my photographer registry may be for you. This is how it works: We set up a registry on my website where friends and family can log in and securely add credit to your package using their credit card. Then we can put that credit towards any options you’d like such as extra prints, albums, engagement session, etc. This is especially good for those of you who don’t need any extra household items at your bridal shower or as wedding gifts and would prefer to put some money towards a beautiful keepsake from your wedding that will last a lifetime. If this is something that you’d be interested in, please email me and we’ll figure out the details from there. Cheers,...

Off to New Zealand!!

Hey everyone, Well we’re off to the airport in a couple of hours and I wanted to let you all know that I’ll be away from Jan. 31st to February 20th.

Thanks for checking out my blog and I’ll be sure to post some pictures from New Zealand when I get back! Cheers,...

Album Special – 10% Off

I’m a big fan of albums. I really believe that they’re the most important part of a wedding photography package since they embody the entire purpose of what I desire to offer – a complete record of your wedding story. Framed prints and DVD slideshows are great, but nothing lasts through generations and offers the same sort of encapsulating narrative of your special day than a beautiful custom-designed wedding story book. I like to think that my couples will cherish these family heirlooms for decades to come and will look back on them to recapture those fleeting memories of one of the best days of their lives…a reminder of their young love and youthful vitality to inspire and rekindle their passion and love for one another…”for as long as they both shall live”. In an effort to make these albums more attainable and attractive to my prospective clients, I’m pleased to announce a limited-time-offer of 10% off your first album if ordered along with your package (i.e. before the wedding day). I hope some of you will take advantage of...
