Jessica & Alex came to me as one of the many referrals I’ve received over the years. It’s great to know that I’ve earned peoples’ trust enough for them to tell their friends and family. This matter of trust is the main reason engagement photos are a must with my wedding photography services.

It gives couples a chance to get used to being in front of the big camera, see what the camera likes, develop a rhythm to our interaction, but most importantly, it gives me time to earn the couple’s trust. It is of paramount importance that a couple have faith in my ability to capture their “real you”, on the most tumultuous of days that awaits them. This allows them forget about the camera and move through their day, confident that their memories are in good hands.

When I met with lovely Jessica and her big beau Alex downtown for their shoot, we took our time getting into the groove and kept things loose and easy. As their session went on, I showed them the results we were getting. Content that they were looking natural for their session, they were able to relax, have a great time and finish with some great photos.

I will be capturing their wedding this August at the stately Edgewater Manor in Stoney Creek. If you’ve never been there, look it up and make a visit and have dinner – you’ll love it.

 

As many couples opt for a less overwhelming experience, intimate wedding are growing in popularity. In a the common ‘big and busy’ format, your day can be filled with so many people you scarcely get a chance to speak with them all! Creating a small, luxurious celebration space for your closest friends and family can be made so easy with the help of talented event designers, musicians, and florists. At the AGO (Art Gallery of Ontario), vendors came together to create a magical space for a small group. Fragrant plush white flowers from Opening Night Flowers creates the lavish tone, as Ettridges brings opulence to the skies with white girannamo balloons. The space fills with elegant music provided by Wellington Music as the romantic escape is created, transforming the space into the wedding of your dreams.

We are immensely proud of this shooting having been posted on Elegant Wedding Magazine and Event Source’s online blogs, where you’ll find this shoot and other great wedding planning resources!

It’s funny how you connect with people – Annie & Ryan found me this year at a wedding show. They’d asked me about photos for their engagement party in March and needed to have their photos done indoors. I noted their names in my contact book as I felt we had a meaningful conversation and had a feeling they would need help.

Fortunately, the GTA offers many beautiful indoor photography options.  It definitely pays to do your research as you would be pleasantly surprised at the venues and locations open to photography. I’ll be blogging some of the more interesting locations I’ve discovered over the next few months, come back and have a look at the other changes you’ll be seeing to my website as well.
