Tricia + Dominick, Trevor Booth Photography, Windsor ON, Canada

Tricia and Dominick had met 20 years ago in college…over the years their friendship grew in to a love they both couldn’t deny. Through the love of sports, travel and shear determination (from Dom), that love brought them together on August 4th. Friends and family enjoyed a funny spontaneous ceremony from Father Greg at the Most Precious Blood Church ending in the the best view from South West Ontario at the Augustus 27 room at the Caesars Windsor.

Here are some of my fav’s from their wedding.

Cheers, Trevor

Peggys Cove, Nova Scotia, Canada

Peggys Cove, Nova Scotia, Canada

I finally had the opportunity to get back to one of Canada’s most iconic locations of this great giant nation. In my mind THE most iconic. Peggys Cove! Just south east of Halifax, the drive takes about 45-50 min down a very picturesque road.

I flew to Halifax on my way to Cape Breton for a wedding a few days later and decided to jump on the chance to see my favourite lighthouse. Arriving to the tiny community around 3 in the afternoon where the lighthouse sits majestically on top of some giant barren exposed rocks I found my parking spot for the day and grabbed my camera. My plan was to spend the afternoon photographing the lighthouse and her community, enjoy some fresh mussels for dinner and catch the sunset. Thankfully the weather was absolutely amazing for it all to come together.

While sitting down about to enjoy those fresh mussels an old friend from Windsor saw on facebook I was there and mentioned he now lives 30 min away with his wife and family. Calum (McPhee) was flying home from his work out west and graciously offer me to stay there instead of me driving to Cape Breton that evening. I jumped at the offer as the thought of driving 3.5 hours on the trans-Canada at night wasn’t really appealing compared to 30 min up the road.

By the time the sun was almost on the horizon the amount of people had tripled along with the amount of tripods. I found my location(s) where I thought was the best angle, just due west of the lighthouse on a low outcropping of exposed rocks. Thankfully there wasn’t the amount of people like there was on the main rocks as myself and just one other photographer from the UK enjoyed this pristine spot.

That other photographer did take a huge chance venturing onto some of the (not so safe) black rocks to grab another angle. Which you can see in one of my photos. Shaking my head my thoughts went back to a young fellow from my home town of Smiths Falls, ON how just a few months prior got hit by a rogue wave while on some of these black rocks and was swept away. Very sad. Even worse is that he was never found. There are warning signs saying not to go onto these black rocks for the potential of getting swept away by one of these waves is good. Yet all day I saw people from all walks of life, all age groups doing just that and taking that huge risk.

It was a beautiful day, beautiful location, beautiful sunset. If you ever have the chance to see this part of our great country of Canada, don’t hesitate. Go see it! And I recommend the fresh mussels!

Cheers, Trevor

 

shirley + conrad; a Cape Breton wedding

shirley + conrad; a Cape Breton wedding

I’ve known Conrad as long as my wife and I have been married ourselves. So having the opportunity to photograph his and Shirley’s wedding in Cape Breton in Oct was truly a small dream come true. The weather was as good as they could have hoped for. The laughter filled the air as did the drink flow. A great time was had by all!!

Thank you Shirley and Conrad for letting me be a apart of your wedding!

2012 – the good, the clients and the mountain…

2012 – the good, the clients and the mountain…

What a year.

2012 will be one of the most memorable years in my photography business. The first few months are always slow, which comes with the weather. But this is the time of year to catch up, learn new techniques, begin new advertising campaigns, share photos with you all that I just didn’t have time to do throughout my busy summer/autumn months. Along with all the computer work I shot some great classic children’s portraits, dramatic baby bumps and edgy but classic business head shots. We also got the cutest puppy in the world! There were a lot of fundraising events for our charity – “Climb Kili 2012” which you can click here to still donate to such a great cause!

This year was a first for me – WPPI in Vegas. Super cool conference. Learned a few new tricks of the trade along with seeing what is hot and what is not in the industry. I can see myself going again!

This years busy season was an exceptional one. Training to climb Mount Kilimanjaro was in high gear while fundraising for our local hospital amongst shooting for all my clients made it for a year to remember. Gaining new clients like Grill 55, Government of Ontario, ADA Architects, Blackburn Radio, Downtown Windsor Business Accelerator, Foia Restaurant, Level 3 Vodka Emporium to name a few. All the while keeping my amazing existing clients happy ( STC Construction, University of Windsor Ontario, Dragon Boats, Beaverfest, etc) when called upon.

Amongst all my work are some of my favourite personal photos I have taken this year. Had the pleasure to photograph a wedding in Cape Breton. So spending a few days on the new Cabot Links golf coarse and enjoying Inverness’s amazing beach made it for a great working holiday.

The rest of the summer I watched my boy win his baseball little league, polar bears at the Detroit Zoo, the Stanley Cup come to Amherstburg ON, and finally drop that extra 5 lb’s to help me get to the top of Kilimanjaro.

Spending 13 days in Africa with such an amazing group of people all the while pushing ourselves to the limits physically and mentally and reaching the summit of Africa’s highest mountain – Kilimanjaro was worth 18 months of fundraising and training! Finishing off our trip we experienced the wild side of Africa while on a 3 day safari. It was truly a trip of a lifetime!

The last 3.5 months of last year has been THE busiest I have ever been. Yet I still found some down time to go see an NFL game in Buffalo and to send a couple day at Kalahari with my friend Mike and our boys.

Thanks to everyone who has supported me and my business over the years. Last was great, though I’m not sure how I will be able to top it. I can assure you that I will surely try!

Cheers!

 

Mt Kilimnajaro – Day 2

Mt Kilimnajaro – Day 2

The second day was fairly short in terms of only hiking 4-5 hours to next camp. We gained only a few hundred meters and got into camp relatively early. Which was nice for a couple reasons – to chill, relax and re-energize our mind and body for the tomorrows 8-9 hour day and to enjoy the view!

DAY 2; Machame Route, 3200m (approx), 5hrs of hiking

 

Carla and Corey at Egypt Falls, Cape Breton

Carla and Corey at Egypt Falls, Cape Breton

I asked Carla if she would like to hike the steep (and when I say steep, there’s a roped section) to Egypt Falls for a post-wedding (not really a trash the dress shoot but close) styled shoot with Corey in front of the falls she was all game from the word go!

As things go I wish I had about 3 more flashes to light everything but I think the photos turned out fairly good with what I had. How could they not with a beautiful couple in such an amazing setting.

Thanks again Carla and Corey for letting me be a part of your wonderful day and for trekking down to the falls for this as well!

Cheers

Morgan + Shiloh; View Point Inn, Oregon USA

Morgan + Shiloh; View Point Inn, Oregon USA

The wedding was to take place at the now worldly famous “Veiw Point Inn” overlooking the Columbia River Gorge. (Think Prom scene in “Twilight”)

I flew in the previous day and in the morning had some time to check out the surrounding area and the Inn itself. The drive to the Inn from Portland is fabulous on the old section of the highway through typical west coast forest which is simple beautiful! Not to mention the air was the cleanest I’ve breathed in a very long time! The sunrise over the gorge that morning was simple magical and I will post these and more photos from Oregon very soon.

From the Inn it’s about 20 minutes to the famous Multnomah Falls. Morgan mentioned to me the night before that if we had time before the ceremony we could shoot down to the falls to take some photos if the weather was good. More on that later.

After my 3 hour scouting drive I headed back to the hotel, grabbed a bite to eat for lunch and got ready for the day’s events. Met up with Colette and waited for both the bride and groom to arrive. We planned on taking photos prior to the ceremony so we could miss the chaos of the guests and have more time to relax and enjoy it.

Morgan and Shiloh’s first meeting or first sight was very inspiring and emotional! And photographing it almost had me in tears myself! Walking the grounds of the Inn we got some fabulous stuff and thankfully the weather held out. Having 45-50 minutes to spare I made the executive decision to jump into my rental and zoom on down to the falls! And the stress of it all was worth every second! Colette escorted them up to the bridge and made sure it was clear of people for the shot. In the mean time I set my tripod (the first and only time I have every used one while photographing a wedding) and framed the shot I wanted. I took about 20-25 images and called them back down. Within ten minutes we were back on the road up to the Inn and hopefully on time for the ceremony. (Which we were!)

The ceremony went on without a hitch as did the reception! Dancing was enjoyed by all and when Morgan put on her cowboy boots, took dancing to the next level! Fun was definitely had by all!

I want to thank both Morgan and Shiloh including both their families for taking the risk hiring a photographer from so far away – another country at that! I really enjoyed myself and I would probably say it was one of my best weddings to date! Thanks again!

Cheers!
