Lauras Senior Photo Session | Feilds of Dreams

Over the US Thanksgiving holiday, we traveled to Iowa for both photographic purposes and pleasure as we got to be with family.  What a blessing it was to be able to spend our days together as one big happy family.  We also enjoyed God's creation as the fields had just been harvested. For miles and miles around all you could see was open, golden land.

While we were there, we had the pleasure of creating some gorgeous highschool Senior pictures for Laura.  This is one unique and talented young lady, which made for a ton of fun.  Her creativity and ingenuity in crafting art pieces and other whimsical keepsakes is quick to bring a smile to anyone's face.  She is also funny and a true treasure to be around. Congratulations Laura!

Bahy & Imrie Engaged! | Cheltenham Badlands Engagement Photography

A brisk, Autumn afternoon was the stage for Bahy & Imrie's beautiful Engagement Session.  Wanting something "different" to commemorate their special union, we took them out to the Cheltenham Badlands.  After we had some fun sliding around on the clay dunes, we continued the session in a near by wooded area and by a big, rustic barn.

The highlight of this Engagement Session for me was what we found when we slid the barn doors open.  Among the piles of old junk, under some dusty drop-cloths hid an antique piano.  Priceless, as Bahy & Imrie both are very gifted musicians and both play the piano fluently.  The images that we were able to capture of the love between Bahy & Imrie were stunning and I think that both of them will agree: unique

Andy & Missy Married! | Burlington Golf & Country Club

Every detail of their amazing wedding was thought out, planned and lovingly produced.  From the significance of the wedding colours to the little cowboy and princess table place cards, the labour of love that Missy & Andy put into their day made it amazing. 

We started the morning with Missy, her mom and the matron of honour at the salon.  From there we went on to the bride's house where every room was a buzz of activity.  6 bridesmaids, 3 flower girls, 4 jr bridesmaids, the bride, two aunts and the bride's parents were all busy getting ready.  It was so much fun bouncing from room to room getting candid shots of all of that activity!

The ceremony was one of the most meaningful I have ever seen.  I don't think that there was a dry eye in the entire church as Missy and Andy pledged their love to each other.  Missy surprised Andy just before saying her vows by giving him a necklace that had significant meaning.   This necklace had been given to her by her father and has been displayed on her neck for the past twelve years.  It was a powerful display of love.

After we were able to whisk the bride and groom away from all of the hugs and congratulations, we took the bridal party over to the Burlington Golf & Country Club for a fun filled photo session.  What a magnificently beautiful day.  Congratulations Andy & Missy!  Love you guys!

Jayson & Lindsay Married! | Grand Olympia Stoney Creek Wedding

 On the morning of Jayson & Lindsay's beautiful wedding day we were greated by a very excited bride in curlers!  The Bride's house was buzzing with excitement, laughter and a good dose of happy tears.  After spending the morning with the girls, Mike slipped over to see what the men were up to and to capture those great moments as Jayson got himself put together.

After a beautiful ceremony which included one of the sweetest poems I've heard written by Lindsay's grandmother to commemorate  the special union, we headed into downtown Stoney Creek with the bridal party.  Just as we arrived at the Old Powerhouse in the heart of town, the sunshine broke through the clouds.  We had a great time with the entire party, getting some fun shots of the entire group walking down King Street and goofing off by the fountain.   Once we were done with the wedding party shots, we took Jayson & Lindsay inside of the Old Powerhouse for intimate, stunning images of just the two of them.

Justin & Tara | Appleby College | Oakville Wedding Photography

This past weekend we were so thrilled to be part of Justin and Tara's long awaited wedding day.  This couple was surrounded by people who loved them the entire day.  From the first hours of the morning, at the salon, the happy tears of joy were flowing.  After a beautiful ceremony and lots of fun the sky eventually gave us a sunshine rain... although we were well prepared for this excitement!  We had successfully completed the bridal party images and were then able to head for cover without getting too wet ☺!  We continued grabbing stunning images of these two Love-Birds inside the gorgeous John Bell Chapel on the campus of Appleby College in Oakville.  Justin and Tara clearly enjoyed this special time together where we were able to create some priceless romantic images for them.

Anthony & Julie's Muskoka Wedding | Regatta Gravenhurst

With the beauty of true Muskoka country surrounding them, Anthony and Julie pledged their lives to each other before friends and family.  It was under blue sky full of fluffy white clouds that they became one.  The location was stunning - around each corner was yet another breathtaking sight that was screaming to be photographed.

The bride boarded a sparkling wooden boat with her father and approached the Regatta where her groom awaited.  I don't think that there was a dry eye around as Julie's father carefully helped her out of the boat and up the dock to meet Anthony.  What a spectacular entrance and start to a elegant day.
