Annie & Kevin - Anniversary portrait session - The Donovan Sudbury

 

 

 

Annie and Kevin came to me to book a couples session. It was going to be an anniversary present from Kevin to Annie. He booked everything for her, hair, make up and then a party afterwards.  I thought that it was such a sweet gift. As it turned out he decided to do it for her because she hadn’t liked any of there wedding photos.  Everytime I hear someone say that they didn’t like their wedding photos it breaks my heart.  Yet it is probably the thing I hear most often from people about their wedding. “It was great but I wish I had better photos”  

I asked them if there was somewhere special to them somewhere that they had in mind for their photos.  They immediately came to the conclusion that the Donovan was the place for them, so we ran with it!

I had so much fun with these guys, Annie’s sarcasm and Kevin’s self deprecating humour had us all in stitches for the entirety of the session. We found a little slice of nature in the city and then went on to fully utilize the cool feel of the Donvan.  

 

Ariel & Brandon - Sudbury Engagement Photography

Ariel and Brandon are such a goofy fun loving couple.  They are so much fun to work with.  Ariel has an infectious laugh and isn't afraid to be silly. Even though Brandon tries to resist her antics even he cracks and starts laughing along.  We had a blast shooting this session, there were a ton of jokes and sarcastic remarks which is a perfect fit for my sense of humor.

Ariel used to be a competitive skater so she really wanted to incorporate winter and skating.  We had a relatively strange winter the skate path was only open for a few weeks and we couldn't make that work so by the time we could schedule their engagement session it was a rainy day and we knew that this was spring this was going to be it. No more chance for snowy pictures. Little did we know we would still have snow in April! Because of the rain and the snow melting it created this ethereal thick fog that I was dying to shoot it.  Here is Ariel and Brandon's Foggy outdoor winter engagement session.

Amanda & Shevon's Wikwemikong Engagement Photos – Manitoulin Island

This was my first time ever traveling to Manitoulin Island. It was a beautiful drive from Sudbury there were stretches of road that were so beautiful, you would round a bend as see the amazing rock faces, the wildness and the rugged beauty of the scenery took my breath away. Im not surprised that this landscape inspired the group of seven and their bodies of work.  I was inspired by all of this and I hadn’t even gotten to the island yet.  When I reached the island it was like a totally different world there were flat pastures, Beautiful lake views and speed limits that allowed you to take it all in.

The location that was selected for Amanda and Shevon’s Engagement pictures was incredible and had a lot of history associated with it.  The Ruins are the outter brick walls of a building with row upon row of windows.  I absolutely loved the location.  Here are a few of my favorite photos from their engagement session.

Winter Engagement Photography Session - Sudbury Ontario

People in the North Love the snow and winter.  These two true Northerners were no different.  Kathleen and Blaine love the winter, its their favorite time of the year.  They wanted to incorporate winter into their Engagement session.  I took them for a little walk down a path in the bush to do some of the shots.  I got them all set and was ready to take a photo as I was backing up to get the perfect shot I stepped off of the path and sunk up to my waist in the snow.  lol They were laughing, I was laughing, the look on my face must have been priceless.  The snow filled my boots it even went down the back of my pants.  I was freezing but you can't help but laugh when these things happen. lolI had to pass my camera to Blaine while I tried to wriggle myself free of the snow trying to ensure I didn't lose a boot in the process.  Each step I took towards the trail I sunk in again, filling my clothing with fresh cold snow until I finally reached the packed trail. Clumsily, half crawling half rolling I manged to mount the summit that was the trail.  I was laughing uncontrollably at this point as were they.  Luckily this happened at the end of the session so we could all head inside to warm up.  But enough laughing at me for now, here are a few of the beautiful winter engagement photos we captured that day.

Jess & Mike's Brick Works Engagement Photo Session - Toronto

I had a fabulous time with Jess and Mike while doing this session. Even though the weather was 5 degrees and raining we still had a ton of fun.  The Brick Works is such a cool location for photos there are so many different looks in one location.

 I love shooting in new places it always heightens my creativity.  I thought I would try something a new with this couple, so I incorporated a little Video of them and made a little fusion slideshow.  Here is the reveal of my first fusion engagement shoot.

Let me know what you think of it down in the comments section.

Lagoon City Engagement Photography Session

I was given the opportunity to travel for this Engagement Photography Session. Sarah is a Nurse and Graham is a contractor and they share a love of Boating.  They keep their Boat, a Trojan as I am told by Graham in a lovely spot called Lagoon City just outside of Orilla.  We spent the day traveling around the area stopping to photograph in several different locations.  We even had lunch on the boat out by a small island in Lake Simcoe.  I had so much fun spending the day with these two. 

Do you and your fiancé have a shared interest? Or just want to have something different from all of your friends Engagement Photos consider traveling to a cool location like the streets of downtown Toronto if you are from Sudbury or a hike or boat ride in the Muskoka’s if you’re from Toronto.  It can be like a date day for you and your partner and what a way to capture the experience! Have your photographer capture the day for you. It will make for great moments to be treasured for years to come.

Dana and Mathews Sudbury Engagement Photography Session

Dana & Mathew's Engagement Session was a fun one for me I got to try out a couple of new locations and really experiment with some new poses. Dana is a huge fan of Black and White Photographs. In fact to quote Mathew " Dana would live in Black and White if it was possible." LOL

I too Love a great Black and White image. I still shoot black and white film in my spare time and then process the images in a darkroom. There is something about the connection to the past that you get when processing your images alone in a darkroom that even manifests itself in your prints. I truly love anything that I can use to have a physical connection to the past. Thats probably why I Love Photography so much. Here are a few images from Dana and Mathews Engagement Session.

Sudbury Couples Photography

This fall I was at the Sudburybride Fall bridal show and was asked to photograph some couple shots for these  two young guys and they wanted to make sure I would include their dog.  He was a good looking dog so I said sure, why not.   Not to undermine what a good looking couple these two are.

Here are a few of their Photographs from that chilly  Sudbury fall evening.
