Gorgeous Miss P. What a total bombshell! She couldn’t have played this any cooler…or hotter for that matter. Some boudoir sessions just work. Everything falls into place… This was that. So impressed with this woman!
Karen and Chad…K and C…Ch’aren! I mentioned this on my Facebook page following their wedding day but I’m happy to say it again: simply being with these two makes you feel better, about all kinds of things, Yourself, marriage, love, friendship. And let me clarify, you don’t have to feel bad to appreciate this kind of ‘better’. It just is, they just bring more good. They are kind, happy, relaxed, genuine people whose families are filled with love and support. You’ll soon see that Karen radiates pure joy and confidence and Chad, a quiet, easy confidence. It was truly my honour to photograph their northern Muskoka Wedding day. Karen and I actually met years ago, she now lives out west but is originally from this beautiful little town I call home, Sundridge. Although I could have predicted it, this was yet another rainy September Saturday in Ontario. On this day it poured. And it didn’t matter one single bit…until we had to run a long distance out of a field in the pouring rain.
I had a blast this day. It’s rare that I get to shoot weddings in my own sweet community. There were plenty of familiar faces, lots of reminiscing, some of my favourites – groomsmen in underwear, and of course a little dancing too.
Ch’aren, I can’t wait to see you again soon. We’ll eat, drink and be marry…hopefully in Calgary next month.

This is a huge and very personal post dedicated to Julie, Paul, Anna and Chris. I love you sweet and funny Beatty/Hartman family. If you follow the blog you know I love Ontario’scottage country. Well, this cottage is a significant part of that. Aside from my family’s cottage – next door, this is the place where my dreams are made of. It’s where part of my childhood lives. It’s where my oldest friends grew up and now where they’re raising their families. So romantic, I can hardly stand it. (P.S. big brother ‘L’ was not as thrilled with my camera work as his little sister. I kept my distance but do love him equally. He’s a tough little nut to crack…even after four years…)
