When I met Leslie at Starbucks to see if I’d be a right fit for her and Patrick’s wedding, I knew immediately that I had to be a part of their day. She was confident, talkative and hilarious! I couldn’t imagine however, that the whole wedding would be as fun as our first meeting! Continue reading
Weddings are always fun to shoot. The mood is generally light and happy, there’s nervousness and excitement in everyone’s eyes, and lots of wine (not for me, unfortunately lol, for the guests!). Amanda and Josh’s wedding has a special place in my photographic career though, as I was lucky enough to bond with them over a few sessions in the winter and spring the year prior! Continue reading
what a night. With the sky displaying thousands of stars, and the Milky Way’s galactic center in plain view, Karen and Dave took a short moment on a bench and let me take some pictures of them. I’m sure that being away from the party and the music for a few minutes while I forced them to sit in silence for 30 second intervals gave them time to reflect everything they had just gone through in just one day!
Story time! How did a fabulous couple like Amanda and Josh end up doing a photoshoot in a laundromat in the middle of downtown Ottawa, to celebrate their engagement you may be asking? It all started in a magical land I like to call “The Internet”. Continue reading
I find it hard to shoot in winter. Not because the snow is bright, or it’s cold out (though that doesn’t help!), but because winter time makes me incredibly lazy! I like sitting around in the winter, watching re-runs of television shows and playing videogames. I try to do photography projects, but many of them wind up on the cutting table.
But all it takes is a walk in the woods and a fun shoot to bring it back! Amanda and Josh seemed perfectly comfy in the snow, even when we had to make a hike up hill at the beginning to reach our destination. Continue reading
My friend Ylimay makes stuff. For Christmas, she once made me a Fallout Munny Figurine, and for my birthday, a retro Mario bros! So I was not surprised when she told me that she had rented a booth at the Tie the Knot Urban Wedding Show right here in Ottawa. She will be making flower crowns for weddings and events, and I told her I’d love to photograph some for her!
When I travelled to Venice, Italy, I saw a store where they demonstrated how to create pieces of art with glass. I was intrigued because being a guy, I am naturally attracted to fire and melting things! So when Shannon invited me to a glass blowing, Christmas ornament making workshop, I jumped at the opportunity! Continue reading
I must confess that I was a little nervous going to Mexico City. It’s an enormous place (22+ million people) with both a reputation for being beautiful and dangerous. But surprisingly, Mexico city was one of the places I felt safest when travelling! And the beauty of the city is apparent everywhere =) Continue reading
This weekend my wife and I rented a car and decided to go to Gatineau Park for a hike and a picnic, before the winter chill came (I’m a little bit of a baby when it comes to cold weather!). Of course I decided that being in the forest would be the perfect opportunity to take a few pictures, and it wasn’t long before I found a nice little creek!
