Mike & Melissa | Ontario Wedding Photographer

My little bro is married!! They decided on a small intimate wedding for close family and friends and the day turned out to be a wonderful one! All be it with a few memorable hiccups, but hey, it only gave them some fun stories to laugh over when they look back years from now.

This is the first time I was asked to photograph a wedding I was also a part of. It was challenging, but I loved the chance to capture the day for them.

here's a few of the more memorable moments of the day.

We headed out to a local park to get some shots before the ceremony. Mother Nature was looming with the threat of rain all day, but she held off long enough for us.. and we appreciated it immensely.

Try shooting a wedding and being in the shots at the same time!!

It was then time for the ceremony, which I was to be a part of, so I didn't actually get any shots of it. This is where things got a bit interesting... The officiant was late!! After waiting for about 15 minutes and trying to get a hold of her on the phone with no luck, we quickly phoned to try and find another officiant to perform the ceremony. Only one problem, the other officiant had the wedding license!! So we jumped in the car and flew down to City Hall to quickly get another license before they closed for the day! Of course we were almost out of gas, and we ran into road closures at almost every turn! It was quite the scene as we rushed into the building, everyone was watching us. Luckily, the phone call came and the original officiant had finally showed up, she had mixed up her times!! So crisis adverted, we headed back and the ceremony proceeded. Despite the hiccup, it was a beautiful ceremony.

Cheryl Tiegs - Southern Ontario Portrait Photographer

My first Celebrity photoshoot!

I got the opportunity to shoot Cheryl Tiegs for the upcoming cover of Forever Young News

We only had a short few minutes with her before she had to do an interview, so I kept it simple. Luckily the hotel room provided some nice window light and Cheryl of course was a pro! She gave me a slew of different poses with ease.

I have to say, at 63 years young, she still looks great!

Here's a few of my faves from the short session.

the Speers Family - Southern Ontario Family Photographer

Facebook is amazing. It has allowed us to reconnect with people whom, due to our hectic lives and schedules, we may have lost touch with over the years.
Jenn is a friend of mine from back in my college years. She sent me a message and asked if I could take some photos of her family. Of course I would!

We had kept in touch a bit and I was a guest at her and Mike's wedding a few years ago, but since we just hadn't had much chance to get together. Their family has grown and now they have two amazing girls. We finally found a chance to hang out again and to get some nice family shots in the park on a hot summer afternoon.

The girls were full of energy despite the heat. Keeping up with them was tricky!
We found whatever shade we could and made the most of the afternoon.

I had a great time photographing your family guys!! And I really hope we get to hang out again sooner this time!!
