This is what happens when you have an uber creative mom!
An affair to remember!
Well, yesterday was certainly nowhere near as warm as the same time last year but when your couple is as easy-going and brave as Theresa and Mike, 4 degrees is good enough to do some pix outside! All activities took place at the Holland Marsh Wineries in Newmarket. Having photographed Theresa’s sister Kim’s wedding 3 years earlier (as well as maybe 5 other weddings of friends since then) I’m like a friend of the family now – which is always a treat. The day went off without a hitch ending with the roasting of marshmallows by the fire outside. Peace and love to you guys. Here a few teaser pix:
A couple of weeks ago I took photographs for the Ontario Municipal Affairs & Housing at the ROMA-OGRA Conference held at the Royal York Hotel. My primary focus was pictures of Minister Jeffrey and incoming Premiere Kathleen Wynne. While I have no party affiliation, I was mighty impressed by Kathleen Wynne’s demeanour and responses to questions from the audience. Here are a few pix from the event.
When you are planning your special day, you want everything to be just right, to go off without a hitch, and to be the experience of a lifetime. Obviously, when you begin to look at wedding photographers for your Toronto wedding, you will be concerned with style. You will probably want to look at their portfolios to determine whether or not their photography is in keeping with what you had in mind for your wedding pictures. However, it is not only the style of the photographers’ pictures that you will want to be mindful of. Be sure to pay attention to their personal styles as well.
The weather may have been cold yesterday but all involved basked in the warmth of the total love between Rachael and Mike. We did the ‘reveal’ and the couple of pix at Rachael’s parent’s lovely home. Before we headed to Beth David Bnai Israel Synagogue for the ceremony and reception we make a quick pitstop at Starbucks. Thank you guys for entrusting me with your cherished memories. It was a wonderful day. Here are some pix:
If you are old enough, you may remember a time when getting out the camera and taking a picture at an event was a major endeavor. In some families, a roll of 24-exposure film could take months to get through before it was taken to be developed. A week later, the pictures would be available, and often it was surprising to see what was at the beginning of the roll. Now, with practically everyone’s phone serving as an instant camera, the whole scenario has changed, and every guest at a wedding seems to fashion him or herself as a professional photographer. But the old adage is often true: You get what you pay for. So, if you are planning to get married in Toronto, you will seriously want to consider whether or not you want the photos of what could be the most important day of your life coming from Instagram.
Everyone in Toronto has attended at least one wedding where the efforts to tend to photography seemed to take center stage. Nothing is more frustrating for attendees than trying to peer around a photographer who is positioned right in the middle of everything – all the time. Nothing is more frustrating for the couple than the constant distraction from each other, from the ceremony, or from the reception by a photographer who is always at the center of every single moment. But it doesn’t have to be that way. It is possible to have easy-going and unobtrusive Toronto wedding photography that blends seamlessly into your day so that the photographer gets all of the beautiful shots that you will want without becoming the focus of anyone’s attention.
Any successful relationship hinges upon trust and communication. Without these key elements, the relationship is bound to fail. As you are preparing for your special day, it is essential to remember the importance of trust and communication. Oh, between you and your spouse, to be sure, but presumably, you wouldn’t be planning on spending a life together if a high level of trust and communication wasn’t already present. However, as you choose among the myriad of options available when it comes to caterers, florists, and especially among Toronto wedding photographers, trust and communication will be important to those relationships, as well.
