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.  

 

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.

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.
