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
It’s 2016! Time to make some cheesy New-Year’s resolution which we will never keep. Except this time I’d actually like to keep just one.
A 52-week photography challenge. Sounds simple enough right? Take one picture a week based on one of the 52 challenges set aside for you.
Except it’s January 17 and I’m already 2 weeks late to the party…whoops.
Week 01 – Self Portrait.
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!
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!
Rome is one of those cities you could visit for a month and still feel like there is too much to do! The architecture, the history and the food are just the starting points! My wife and I spent about 10 days in Rome, and it was one of the highlights of our trip around the world! Here are 5 things you should be doing if you are planning on visiting: Continue reading
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
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!
Paris is the called the city of lovers, the home of fine wine, great bread, and quaint architecture. But what is there to do here? For this #throwbackthursday I’ve compiled a list of 5 of my favorite things that everyone should experience when traveling to Paris! Continue reading
