This is a tale of two lovely persons, one from Toronto and one from Montreal… and.. they got married!

Interesting fact, most couples I’ve booked, I’ve known for quite some time leading up to the wedding. I’ve only met Bessie and Andrew a couple of weeks ago for the first time, right there and then, I knew I was going to have a fantastic time on their big day. Interesting fact number 2, Bessie herself is in the wedding industry with floral designs. She definitely did a great job arranging all the flowers and decor for her own wedding! A bride who is in the industry can really mean one thing, they understand the whole process and it has honestly been quite some time where timing for everything was executed in a timely fashion without any sort of delays. Not even for a split second!

All I have to say is, time flies. It was like yesterday when I was running up and down jumping high and low to get some splendid photos of Alice and Johnny’s wedding. Exactly a year has past and I want to congratulate Alice and Johnny once again for being a really great couple. Alice and I have been chatting for months about a lifestyle portrait photo shoot for their anniversary. As we were chatting, we recalled the memories from their wedding day from chilly weather to pouring rain, from hiding and waiting for the rain to slow down so we can jump out and snap a few. Last week, we got our wishes for a bright beautiful day as Alice, Johnny and I walked around Main St, Unionville. We started off chatting in the parking lot and slowly walked around the serenity of TooGood Pond, making our way onto the vivid surroundings of Main St.

Here’s a follow up on the previous wedding blog post – Gigi and Mike. Finally got around to finish the slideshow, image sequence was done rather quickly, however finding the most suitable piece of music is really hard. After days spent on searching, I’ve found the perfect music for this piece.

The slideshow is 6 minutes long, enjoy!

For many years, I’ve stopped taking photos and was really hesitant getting onto the DSLR bandwagon. Joey and Harfrey was the reason why I picked up a DSLR and got back into the amazing world of photography. I still remember the first time trying to figure out how to use the Rebel XT during their “practice” engagement session over at Main St, Unionville (I was in love with Nikon film cameras). It was cold since we did the session in April when there were still snow on the ground. Their official engagement session and wedding was photographed by Jeff Wong who has become a very good friend and mentor over the past few years. This also marked the first time I shot a wedding fully in digital, and the first time I shot a wedding in 5 years. Ever since this wedding, I was back in the game. It was their wedding that made me want to get back into photography, especially wedding photography.

Time flies, 4 years later, they are expecting their first baby at the end of the month. I was so thrilled when Joey asked if I was interested taking on a lifestyle maternity session with them. After a few emails and phone conversations, we decided to head over to Mill Pond Park for a quick portrait session. It was pouring friday night and was partially raining during most of saturday. Thankfully, when we all arrived at the park, the wind was less fierce and the rain was barely noticeable, even had some sun peaking through at times. Here are a few photos from our hiking adventures.
