I have waited WAY too long to blog this awesome beach wedding party!

Meet the sweet and soulful couple, Kristin and Jon. They found me by accident, we met when they were oh-so-sick, and it was love at second sight (I think because they may not have remembered our first sicky meeting?). As it turned out we knew a number of mutual Midland peeps and once they found out I was shooting for Jon…”Jonny Main”, they were thrilled. Everyone loves Jon. Not only do Jon and I have a collection of Midland friends in common but his Gram is from Sunny Sundridge, where I live. Finding K and J was meant to be. I just knew it!

This wedding day was nuts, amazing nuts.

Kristin was the most smiley-smiling bride I had ever seen. Ever. And brides are happy people as a rule. No one, however, has been more obviously-expressively-deliriously happy than Ms. Kristin. It was a perfect start (at the Charters Inn) to a Georgian Bay Wedding day.

It was a wedding at the beach, the family cottage in fact, overlooking the bay with a collection of curious kayaking onlookers. Jon’s dad married them, Jon’s mom toasted them and we all celebrated their union. From the beach, to the bridge, onto the tandem bike and a swinging rope, then deep into the sparking forest we ventured. It was my dream wedding afternoon, not gonna lie. I poked around in bare feet all day. MY DREAM WEDDING!

And then we danced. We danced all night at the brand new Midland Cultural Centre. Everyone danced. Jon and Kristin lead the pack through song after song. I couldn’t believe it, no breaks. Then Kristin drank tequila, her friends drank tequila, and then they all danced some more.

Big fat cheers to Kristin, Jon and their delightful families for celebrating love in the most memorable way I can think of.

Thanks to my invaluable and talented second shooter, Mr. Dave Sloan. Last year, 2012 would not have been the same without you.

Perhaps you experienced the incredible weather we had up here over the Thanksgiving weekend. Perhaps you didn’t? The skies over Lake Bernard in Sundridge were so dramatic. The most interesting I’ve ever seen. Alexa and Adrian still decided to wed on the pier at The Northridge Inn and Resort. As their photographer I could not have been happier about this decision. The winds blew through Alexa’s veil, the sun shone through perfectly on Adrian as he watched his bride walk down the aisle. It was awesome. What wasn’t so awesome…the hail, the snow, and the rain which began almost immediately following their ceremony. It was frigid! We barely made it through their family portraits, never mind a beautiful bridal session. Alas, as you may have seen, we were able to capture some pretty spectacular images (thanks to adventurous clients, beautiful skies, and willing family). And after all of that-we still wanted more. Monday of the long weekend we got all dressed up and did it again. This time the sun was hot (ish), the skies were blue, and the forest was vibrant. This is what we came up with! Enjoy.Best Muskoka Photographer

Really excited to finally share some of these! In the late fall I had the opportunity to shoot a series of stills for an Indie film called “I’m Yours”, written and directed by Leonard Farlinger of New Real Films out of Toronto. So much fun…such a steep (and exciting) learning curve…a tonne of crazy people  work on film sets. It was a blast. Here are some of my favourite shots of the film. You’ll definitely recognize a few Canadians…I’ll post another few later on with stills from behind the scenes.

Writer/Director: Leonard Farlinger

Producer: Jennifer Jonas, Avi Federgreen, Mallary Davenport

Starring: Rossif Sutherland, Karine Vanasse, Don Mckellar

Sigh*…to capture dear Rowan was a breeze! A very exciting, funny, and silly breeze. Ms. Rowan may be one of the easiest children to photograph ever…like in the history of children’s photography. And this not to say I don’t have a wonderful time with all the kids I get to play with. It simply means I have never worked with a child so involved in the photographic process. Rowan and I had met before, if only briefly (I don’t think she would have remembered), she greeted me on her Sundridge stoop, with puppy and mommy in tow. She had a basket of goodies; a two two, balls, scarves, wands, dresses…and the list goes on (Lori, Rowan’s momma makes the most incredibly unique children’s toys, check out her great stuff on Etsy, http://beneaththerowantree.etsy.com . It was if we were old friends, she didn’t skip a beat.

We only shot for about 2 hours, but within those 120 minutes she didn’t stop smiling…at the camera. Every frame was a new and uber fabulous pose. And when it was all said done she pouted. Rowan could NOT understand why this photographic fun was over, why I couldn’t stay and play all night?!

I LOVE working with children. Children’s photography is so much fun. Whether kiddies are shy and quiet or boisterous and outgoing, every one I capture comes with a new perspective. Cheers to a great summer of weddings, families, and babies!
