Shelby & Jason's Wedding at The Grand Theatre / The London Club


I've heard some photographers say that they are "Natural Light Photographers" or that they only shoot in "Natural light".  Although there is nothing wrong with that, it was at this wedding that I realized how glad that isn't me.  Given the choice, I will most definitely shoot with "natural"  aka sunlight.  However Jason and Shelby thought it would be fun to have a wedding somewhere unique, which is when they decided to have it at The Grand Theatre in London Ontario.  It was an amazing location for a wedding!  However, if you've ever been in a theatre, think about the lighting... just enough so you don't trip over yourself right?  Which presents a bit of a challenge... if I don't use flash, all the pictures will be incredibly grainy and look terrible. But, if I use just one flash to light them inside of a big theatre like that, then they look great, but it looks like they are in a pitch black room, you loose all the ambiance of the theatre.  If that happens, whats the point of having there, right?

What to do?  Fortunately I have about 8 flashes.  Up until Jason & Shelby's wedding I had never had a reason to use them all at once!  Im sure glad I had them though.  Not only did we use flash to light them, but we had to strategically place flashes around the room to light the entire place, but still have it look natural!  Lots of work (and fun!) but I think the results were worth it!

Following the ceremony we all headed across the street to The London Club which had amazing food, and an even more amazing wine cellar!

Here are a few pictures from their amazing day!

Every once in a while we get the privilege to do some photography for friends of ours.  This is our engagement session for Nick and Nicole.  We started out at the Elmhurst Inn and then once it got dark we went out to another friends place to have a little fun with fire!

Amanda & Forrest, Engagement Photo Session

in Sarnia 

We had another perfect evening for Amanda and Forrest's engagement session.  Well almost perfect, we started out in a wooded trail, and we're quickly eaten alive by mosquitoes!  So then we headed to the beach!  

Here are a few photos from their session.  Can't wait for their wedding next summer!

Nate & Justine's wedding Photography in Shelburne Ontario


What was supposed to be the hottest day of the summer, and for many was, was a perfect day for Nate & Justine's beautiful wedding day.  Thanks to being up in the hills of Shelburne Ontario, it was several degrees cooler than everywhere else that day, which made for a beautiful day.  Everything from their private, family only outdoor ceremony, to the outdoor garden party style reception was perfect.  

Elisha & I were privileged to be a part of their special day by photographing it for them, and the following are a few shots from their day.  I hope you enjoy!  

And just to mix things up a bit, we'll go in reverse order!


We had a perfect fiery sunset that night!

Dan & Julia's Beautiful Rainy Wedding Day!


A few weeks ago now my wife and I had the privilege of being part of Julia & Dan's special day. They had their wedding reception at Craigowan Golf & Country Club, in Woodstock Ontario.  Unfortunately as the day got closer, the forecast got worse!  It turned out to be not just a bit of a rainy day with a few sprinkles here and there, but was one of those days where the rain came down pretty well non stop and on a 45 degree angle all day long!  That didn't stop anyone from enjoying the day though!  Julia & Dan, as well as there whole wedding party were troopers!  

Fortunately Craigowan Golf and Country Club in Woodstock has some nice overhangs, and porches, so when and where we could we used porches and overhangs to take photos, and we even went out in the pouring rain for a few!  (We managed to keep our cameras dry but my wife and I were soaked to the bone!)  It was all worth it though, in the end we had a great time with a great couple and were able to take some amazing photos with them.

Here are some of the photos from their day, Enjoy!
