These are one of my favourite types of shoots 🙂  Unfortunately, we had an incident in Canada about a  month ago, where a bride was doing this type of session at a set of waterfalls and got caught up in the current and was wept away because her dress was so heavy.  It brought “trash the dress” sessions to the forefront and most people had never even heard of doing such a thing.  It’s unfortunate that this horrible accident is how people have first learned about these kinds of shoots.  Like any profession, safety should always be first, always.  Whether it’s having a family splashing in the water or standing on a rock wall, handling a newborn and posing them in different positions, or having a bride in a body of water, with a heavy dress on,with or without waterfalls.  It blows my mind that there wasn’t another person with the photographer and bride.  If anything, I have put myself in precarious positions before I would put a bride in one.  Comfort and safety people, comfort and safety.

We went back to the park where we did Jenn and Paul’s engagement session.  It was perfect for many reasons.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great weekend 🙂

This park is hugely popular in our area.  But I seem to never really shoot there!  I’m glad I got the chance to go back and discover a few more areas that I had overlooked before 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

Rain rain go away, come again….after the ceremony please!!!!  Woke up, pouring rain….ate breakfast, pouring rain, look at the skies, nothing but dark clouds.  Drive to Midland through Monsoon like rain.  Starts just spitting….looking good!  Oh, hey Mr. Sun!  Can you stay for a few hours, ’cause that would be awesome 😉  Ceremony starts, no rain….signing the register, starts getting windy and starts spitting…. yikes.  Big, dark clouds…no no no!  Blows right over….whew!  Perfect 🙂

Naomi used to be my boss 🙂  About 9 years ago, when I was crazy enough to work with little kids everyday and Naomi was crazy enough to hire me.  Now, I’m still with kids everyday….my own….and she was crazy enough to hire me again for her wedding.  At the end of my time at the YMCA, I was starting to realize that photography may be in the cards for me.  I would bring landscape images into work and ask the girls what they thought, I would take pictures of the kids and give them to their parents, in hopes that one day I could make some money doing something like this.  I would read and study everything I could about equipment and composition and colours while I was simultaneously prepping for the pre school program 😉

Then 8 years later, I have the honour of being at Naomi and Brad’s wedding.  Two simple, beautiful, kind souls saying their vows in a casual backyard wedding.  That just happened to be on stunning Georgian Bay!

Thank you Naomi and Brad for trusting me with your day!  I know you will have a long, happy life together ♥
