2017 Year in Review – wedding edition; Trevor Booth Photography, Windsor Ontario based photographer

2017!!

It has been a one of the best years for me professionally. I want to again thank and congratulate all my clients this year for trusting in me, my vision and mostly my creativity.

I absolutely love photographing a wedding. All the challenges it brings, both personally and professionally. The best is the artistic freedom that my clients give me! THANK YOU!  To all that have enjoyed and grown to love my style over the years – THANK YOU!

I will continue to become better and better, learning as I grow for all my 2018 clients and beyond.

Here’s to the new year and what it might bring to everyone. Cheers and enjoy some of my favourites from this past year of 2017

Ida + Ryan – Trevor Booth Photography, Windsor Ontario based photographer

As the story goes – Ryan surprised Ida with a romantic private dinner overlooking the ocean in Dominican Republic. The setting was beautiful with the letters L.O.V.E lit up and rose petals scattered everywhere. The plan was for Ryan to propose after the meal and right before dessert but when Ida saw what dessert entailed, she had to have a bite or two and Ryan had to wait a bit longer…poor guy! Ryan finally got down on one knee and asked Ida to marry him. It was a very emotional moment and after Ryan proposed, he loosened his tie and drank his champagne! #therealbestwedding

Jennifer + Steven – Trevor Booth Photography; Windsor based photographer

Jenn and Steve’s wedding day was filled with smiles and laughter. A very joyous occasion as any wedding would be filled with close friends and family. I’ve had the distinct honour to have worked for Steven’s dad, Reggie at his Tecumseh based photo studio; St. Louis Studio many moons ago. So I was even more honored when Steven and Jenn liked my work enough to have me photograph their wedding.

Here are some favourites of mine from their joyous day. I hope these and all the other photos will bring them the memories of how fun this day was from start to finish. I mention this because one of Steven’s Aunts pass away the next day. I learn this from Steven asking if I had taken any photos of her at anytime throughout the day.

My heart sunk for him, Jenn and their entire family. Going through my photos I noticed I didn’t get anything of her that day but I had photography her family months back for a family portrait session  and sent them one.

Photography is a very powerful and wonderful thing. The feelings, the memories, the emotion that a single picture can convey. This is why I love what I get to do for a living and why I will continue to do it for as long as I can.

For Jenn and Steven, looking back on your wedding, that feeling, that emotion; will be joyous, love filled. I know in time those feelings will outshine that sadness of that following day.

Love always shines.

T.

 

 

 

 

 

Amanda and Drew – pre-wedding shoot

Amanda and Drew – pre-wedding shoot

The summer’s craziest weekend in Windsor was by far the Red Bull Air Races! So I wasn’t busy enough and squeezed in Amanda and Drew’s engagement shot while they were in town visiting and enjoying the festivities! The buzz downtown that Sunday was fabulous! So we walked a few blocks south of the crowds and had some laughs in the alleys. Even high fiving a giant pita!
Cheers

Before the weather decided to head south, one Sunday afternoon I photographed a couple brothers in downtown Windsor.
The sun was shining, the weather was cool yet nice. The boys looked great in their jackets and jeans. I had fun and I think they did to!
Enjoy the photos and keep smiling!

Ann and Mike in the D!

Had the pleasure of heading over to Detroit with Ann and Mike whos wedding next year will be at the end of May, great time of year! Being Halloween we got through the tunnel in 5 minutes, which I haven’t seen in a very long time! Parked downtown, walked to Greektown and started shooting. The sun popped through a few times for us, but the wind was mighty chilly. We got into the casino and toured around finding some hidden spots before security caught on. lol
Once back outside Mike suggested a break over at the Old Shillelagh’s. We all tried Kid Rock’s new beer, Badass Beer – the name says it all – BAD lol We finished our loop of downtown with a stopover at Campus Martius. Enjoy!
