First Wedding shoot

I've always had a love and passion for photography, but it was only until about four years ago that I got into the wedding photography business. Prior to this, I mostly shoot landscape and wildlife photography.

My interest in wedding photography started when, at the time, I was dating my wife and her sister got engaged. My wife mentioned to her sister that I do photography on the side, and maybe they would want to ask me to shoot their wedding. Her sister did ask me, and since I'm always up for trying new things and challenging myself, I told them that I would love to shoot their wedding.

My gear at that time was a Canon 50D crop sensor camera, and I only had the famous 50 mm f1.8 nifty fifty and a 24 - 70 mm sigma f2.8. I knew I needed a 70-200 mm lens. Luckily for me, Henry’s (a photography store) at that time rented this type of lens.

I can remember that day so clearly, probably because I was both excited and a bit nervous since it was my first time ever shooting a wedding. I was all ready for the day. My camera was set with my three lens and I was good to go. The wedding took place in Tavistock and Stratford, Ontario. It was a long day, I worked for 12 hours photographing everything, but I enjoyed every moment of it. I ended up with over 2000 images. Out of those 2000 images I felt I did a pretty good job. There where some bad ones in the mix, but for my first time it was pretty good.

From that day on, I knew that I wanted to continue to do wedding photography. Fast forward to the present time, and I now shoot wedding, portrait, headshots and work with a modelling agency located in Kitchener, Ontario.

I thank my wife for believing in me, and asking her sister to hire me for her wedding day.

Here are a few images from my first wedding.

Coffee time with Jenna Y Gemini Modeling

For the past month I’ve been photographing portrait series at cafe’s with clients. Yesterday I had the pleasure working with Jenna Y from Gemini Modeling. We meet beside Artline Salon and headed to Berlin Bicycle Cafe on Belmont in Kitchener for a 1 hr portrait sit down.

We sat down with my cappuccino I bought for a prop, started chatting and taking pictures. It was a fun time shooting with Jenna as she talked about her modeling experience and what her plans for the future.

Here are some of the shots I took of Jenna

Gemini Modeling Agency Update

For the past 2 Saturday I had the please working with new and talented models at Gemini. With the help from Meaghan Dietrich Owner and Ceo of Gemini Modeling Agency we where able to setup different setups around the Gemini studio, ranging in lifestyle looks to head shots.

Over all it was a great experience working with talented people and I can’t wait for the next one.

I was thrilled when Artline Salon asked me to take there headshots for there new website. It was a blast taking there pictures.

Getting back into wedding session Rose & Martin

I’ve been shooting wedding over 3 years and going into my 4th year I decided to take time off to spend time with my wife and our new born baby girl.

It’s been over a year and I missed photographing #wedding. So I decided to get back into the game and start shooting wedding. I started slow as I know I would be a little rusty.

I shot 2 wedding over the summer one Canada day and in June. The Canada day will be posted another day.

My June shoot went really well, the ceremony and reception was in the town of #Heidelberg, ON in this beautiful venue Hauser Hall. It was a beautiful ceremony and the best part the bride had a time table set for pictures dinner the works.

To a photographer that’s the best when everything is organize. Here are some images from my back to wedding shoots.

That’s what I do. From the moment I meet you I start to create a vision of what your experience will look like and feel like. I pay attention to details – to light, to colour, to mood, to personality, to positioning – to get the right composition. And then I capture all the moments that will tell your story.
