Beci and Phil


Beci and Phil - High School Sweethearts Reunited A longish time ago, in a town far, far from Southern Ontario - Amherstburg, to be precise - Beci and Phil were high school sweethearts. As sometimes happens, sweethearts fail to marry one another after high school. And, as also sometimes happens, they don't quite forget each other. Move ahead a number of years, and the one-time paramours found themselves unattached at the same time. How they reconnected depends on which of them you ask... He Said, She Said Beci's story: "He friended me on Facebook seconds after I changed back to my maiden name." Phil's story: "She stalked me on Facebook and got my

Charmaine and Laszlo


Charmaine and Laszlo - a Backyard Country Wedding, With Zoo Animals Charmaine and Laszlo own Little Tracks Petting Zoo, a mobile petting zoo just west of Woodstock, Ontario. Their wedding took place in September, 2018 in their yard, steps from where the animals are housed. Animals are central to every aspect of their lives. In addition to the zoo inhabitants, they also have two great Danes, two horses and a pony. The question wasn't whether there'd be animal photos, but how many there'd be. Wedding Day - September 8, 2018 Charmaine, her maid of honour, Jenny, and Jenny's twin daughters got ready at Charmaine's mother's house in Woodstock while Laszlo and his best

Building Your Wedding Day Shot List


How to Build Your Wedding Day Shot List In all likelihood, your photographer thinks about your wedding day a little differently than you do. To him / her, your day is a multi-act play with different scenes and actors / actresses. Without carrying the play analogy too far, let's break a wedding day into its scenes: Bridal party getting ready Groom and groomsmen goofing off and delaying getting ready Groomsen at church / ceremony venue Bridal party getting to church Guests arriving and being seated by ushers Ceremony Post-ceremony at church Family photos Wedding party photos Bride and groom photos Cocktail reception Dinner Speeches Formal dances Cake cutting Bouquet / garter Sunset shots Reception (dancing)

Kate and Zach


Kate and Zach - a Cambridge Mill Celebration Our journey with Kate and Zach began at a Wedding Ring expo in the fall of 2017 when Kate and her aunt visited our booth. We like them both, so I was thrilled to have the chance to talk to Kate again and meet Zach. There was so much about their wedding to look forward to - particularly our first chance to shoot at the Cambridge Mill, and an engagement session at Elora Gorge Conservation Area. Kate and Zach are seriously fun-loving and goofy. Their engagement session took place not long before dusk, which presented interesting challenges. But they didn't let the dwindling light stop them from mugging for

Photographs are the only thing you'll have with you forever - except your new spouse, of course.How do you choose the right
