I first met Amanda when she stood up as a bridesmaid for a good friend of hers for another client. Her and Adrian loved my images and my approach to photographing a wedding. We met a few months after and our personalities clicked – which is a big deal for a destination wedding – and we discussed all the details her and her wedding planner were making for a November wedding in Tulum, Mexico.
The first day after I arrived, we met with their wedding planner to scout out locations and to understand the timing of the day and figure out how much time we would need at each location.
The wedding day finally came with zero chance of precipitation so I knew we would be able to utilize every spot we scouted.
Amanda and Adrian both agreed to have their first reveal by themselves to keep the intimacy. The location couldn’t been better.
Throughout the day we stopped at a few different locations heading towards Tulum which was about an hour from our Barcelo Resort Coming into the twilight hour and finally arriving to Mia Restaurant and Beach Resort. The timing of the ceremony was perfect. Family images were shot upon the sunset soaked beach and everything perfect….till the ginormous rain cloud came right as dinner was going to be served outside. Thankfully Nemo Sierra, their wedding planner had a plan B and we moved into the restaurant for dinner.
By the time dinner was over the rain had stopped and the dancing commenced on the beach. The day was absolutely beautiful even with the hour and a half of rain.
Here are some of my favourites from such an amazing wedding of two of most down to earth people you could met.
2018 has been a different year professionally for me. My weddings slowed down a bit but my commercial work increased, which you can view here (soon). On the personal side of things a lot of growth has come with much more on the horizon. First year in many I didn’t get a chance to head east to my beloved Cape Breton; you were dearly missed!
Got to shoot some fabulous engagements of an amazing couple, Natasha and Nishant, back in my (kinda) hometown of Ottawa on THE hottest day of the year! And I finished off my wedding calendar with a destination to Mexico with two beautiful souls Amanda and Adrian.
Here are some of my favourites from all the highlights I shared with the world this 2018. Hope you enjoy. If your recently engaged or know someone who is – have them contact me for a highly experienced, fun loving energetic photographer – ME!
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
THANKS to all the vendors who helped bring my art to life!!! Love and happiness to all!
Its not often I shoot destination weddings, but Jackie and Wes came to me to photograph their destination wedding in the Playa Del Carmen region of Mexico at the Azul Fives resort, I couldn’t resist.
The location was beautiful, the food was excellent and the company was fun! Great combination for a wedding anywhere! The weather was great all week but it did happen to rain right after the ceremony for about 45 min. Luckily with some location scouting the day before we wasted no time when the skies cleared. Here are some of the best that I think will tell the story of Jackie and Wes’ wedding.
Congrats to you both and thank you for letting me be apart of your fabulous Mexico wedding.
2015 was a year to remember. My daughter Charleigh was in the 2 year of her life, enjoying learning, laughing and waving at everyone from cars passing by to the airplanes in the sky. My boy Quinn turned 11 and is the typical boy of that age, loving gaming, hockey, YouTube and his baby sister.
Well enough of the chit chat, lets get down to why you are on my blog – to see some of my favourite wedding (and some engagement) images from 2015.
Sit back, grab a glass on your favourite vino and enjoy some images from the best clients a wedding photographer could ask for!
So close to nailing it…but that’s what I love about the unpredictability of dogs – esp at weddings. After the vows the little doggie groomsman decided he need some relief…that got a few laughs…but even though he’s out of focus, its still pretty darn cute.
