Teaser Tuesday: Hamilton Maternity Session – Chrissy & Eric

Forgive me for it has been one week since my last blog post….

This past weekend I was shooting some top secret photo sessions, so I actually can’t provide a teaser from the weekend…. yet.

In the meantime however, this lovely baby bump was photographed last weekend at the Hamilton Beaches, so we can enjoy it’s beauty in the interim.

Cheers!

Teaser Tuesday: Country Heritage Park Wedding – Kelsey & Mike

Well, it is still Tuesday and even though it’s 10:30pm and I’m sitting in a McDonald’s in Kincardine typing this after a weekend of 7 hours of driving and 5 photo sessions later, I am determined to make my Teaser Tuesday goal still happen….

Tadaa!  Here we are!

This past weekend I had the pleasure of photographing Kelsey & Mike’s barn wedding at Country Heritage Park.  Luckily, the rain held off just enough to sneak some great outdoor moments around their vast property.  Love this place and this couple!

Cheers and congratulations Kelsey & Mike!

Sandbanks Prince Edward County Engagement – Joanne & Shaun

I’m so excited to share my first Sandbanks engagement session with you!

Meet Joanne & Shaun!  A fun-loving couple who decided to venture all the way out from their city limits to play in Prince Edward County for their engagement session.  We had a lovely evening filled with a visit to an apple orchard for fresh cider, a stop at Slickers Ice Cream in Bloomfield, followed by a barefoot sunset walk along the beaches at Sandbanks.  A quintessential summer afternoon in Prince Edward County if you ask me.

I cannot wait to capture their wedding day this October and here’s to many more Sandbank sessions!

Enjoy!

Teaser Tuesday: Chicopee Resort Wedding – Caitlyn & Dan

Once again, here we are with some more fun teasers from last weekend’s wedding!

This time, it’s Caitlyn & Dan who tied the knot at the Chicopee Ski & Resort and celebrated with dinner and dancing at The Pines wedding venue in Cambridge.  This was my first time shooting a ceremony at Chicopee in amongst the tall pines, and I have to say it was the perfect outdoor spot to get married because despite the heat, we were all in the cool shade enjoying the day.

Certainly a highlight of the day was the pre-super moon showing that lit up the parking lot (more details here).  I managed to get a decent shot of it too, so they can share that memory with generations to come.

Congratulations on a perfect day Caitlyn & Dan!

Introducing: Little Finch Designs by Charlene Daignault-Beatty

I would love for you to meet Charlene of Little Finch Designs.

Why?

Well, not only is she one of the most kindest human beings on the planet (and who wouldn’t want to know more of those), but she’s super talented and has created a really great idea for couples to display their wedding day attire artistically.

Little Finch Designs is known for creating watercolour sketches for greeting cards, but more recently Charlene has decided to branch out and create personalized sketches of your wedding dress/suit.  Typically, what you wear on your wedding day can be among one of the largest investments for that day, both in time and in money.  Once the wedding is over, often brides will dryclean and package their dress away forever and the groom will return his suit.  Both outfits that held so much meaning are usually never seen again in person, besides in photos of course….. oooor in a painting.

See, I like Charlene’s idea of capturing just the dress or suit on a hanger in a watercolour painting because my photos capture the moment of you in the dress, but a personalized and detailed watercolour painting shows just the dress or suit, the way you first saw it on the hanger, plus it’s darn cute and makes for great his/hers and hers/his artwork!

Also, paper just happens to be the traditional first anniversary gift and since these paintings are done on 12 x 9 pieces of watercolour paper… I think you know where I’m going with this…

If you are interested in having Little Finch Designs do a commissionned peice for you, check out her Etsy shop here:

Also, here’s a coupon code for the first 15 people who place an order:  LITTLEFINCHWEDDING2014 (Charlene has limited the coupon code to 15 people because she can only handle so many orders at once, so be sure to place your order soon!)

In the meantime, here’s some lovely images of the talented lady at work:
