Emily & Christopher – Wedding

It was a cold winter’s day in Peterborough but that didn’t stop us from capturing some hot portraits at Emily & Christopher’s wedding recently… I love making beautiful portraits with something simple like a solitary light bulb, a dark dingy basement and a gorgeous subject: Also, the unlikeliest of rooms can sometimes make for the best photo ops: Bloodline Parlour in downtown Peterborough offered some very cool locations and props for the photos in the morning: We made our way to St John’s Anglican Church to...

Fritzie & Shawn Wedding – Taormina, Italy

Here’s part 2 of Fritzie & Shawn’s epic Italian wedding adventure! The view from our balcony at Villa Carlotta on the morning of the wedding was breathtaking.  If only every work day could start with a scene like this!: Here’s Shawn rocking his awesome (appropriately Italian) Pal Zileri suit: I love this candid shot of Franzel.  I tried shooting some more like this but nothing came out as well as the first unposed capture: The gardens had a magical dreamy quality to the light: Here’s a little story of the...

Fritzie & Shawn Engagement Session – Taormina, Italy

I’m very excited to present Fritzie and Shawn’s engagement photos.  We recently had the fantastic opportunity to accompany them to the beautiful town of Taormina in Sicily to capture the events of their wedding celebration. Here’s a small selection of my favourites from their engagement session a few days before the big event: Taormina is such a picturesque little town.  There were so many colours and textures around every corner – it was tough to choose where to shoot next.  It reminded me a lot of Bellagio where we...

Payne Family – Baby Session

Last week I had a chance to get together with some old friends and meet their adorable new baby boy.  Here’s what we captured during our mixed studio and location portrait session: Daddy getting Kevin spiffed up for the photo shoot: This series cracks me up.  I call it: “Doesn’t taste as good as it looks” Proud mom and dad with their little munchkin: We were goofing around with a bunch of his toys and then he pulled this adorable expression: A little reverse game of “got your nose”: I love this moment with...

Marnie & Michael – Engagement

We had a great time shooting Marnie and Michael’s engagement session recently at the picturesque Distillery District and Berczy Park in Toronto. They were so relaxed and comfortable with each other and I think it really shows in the resulting photos: I shot this one through the hanging material seen in the two above images for a romantic “foggy” look: And finally, I had some fun with my infrared camera and captured some dramatic B&W cityscape portraits: I really had a blast working with the two of you and hope we can do...

Inside Milton Magazine Cover and Article

I’m excited to share that one of my photos made it onto the cover of the current issue of Inside Milton Magazine.  If you live in Milton, you’ve likely received a copy of this in your mailbox or seen it displayed in local stores.  I’ve been doing a fair bit of work for this magazine over last few months and it’s been a great experience getting to know some of the local business owners as I help them reach out to the community.  Check out the cover photo below: In this issue, you’ll also find a 3-page writeup on...

Melissa & Paul – Engagement

Last week we made our way out to Paletta Lakefront Park and Mansion in Burlington for Melissa and Paul’s engagement session.  It was a fantastic place for photos (as evident by the 3 wedding parties that were roaming the grounds on a Friday evening) and the sky was beautiful and dramatic. A gaggle of geese were milling about in the background for the first few shots in this series then suddenly they all took flight and we got this cool shot as a result (and managed not to get pooped on too): I’ve been wanting to try this lighting...

Mary & Craig – Wedding

Mary and Craig planned an elegant informal wedding celebration and although our time together was relatively short, we got some great photos of them along with their family and friends. It’s always a nice surprise when the bride chooses a non-standard wedding dress and Mary was rocking this unique ensemble: Mary with two of her lovely daughters: Mary with all three of her daughters – the colours were fantastic: The ceremony took place at Grace Anglican Church in Milton. I loved the fist pump from Mary just before they walked back...
