Today is a special day in my world. On August 12th 1972 my parents got married.
They have always been my example of a true love story and a life lived with your soul mate and to this day it is still so very true.
And so as we speak even thought they have travelled the world, they had never been in New York so this is where you can find them today probably walking hand in hand seeing what the city has to offer so that they can discover it together.
À Papa et Maman,
These are the images I grew up with.
There is a certain grace about Ellie that I just love. A down to earth girl (with style) who looks after her second love Macy, her beloved horse (I think Kirk made his way to the top by the time the wedding took place!) Our connection came with such ease. I remember meeting Ellie and Kirk over coffee and I think the actual wedding talk lasted about 5 minutes and then we surprised ourselves by how fast we started talking about life, love and all it’s beauty. I tell you I just love meeting couples, it always make me discover new things, new habits and great core values.
So we connected, we did one of my sexiest/romantic E-Session to date. From that moment on, I knew I was in for a treat for their wedding day. It was elegant, yet casual. Romantic with the proper dose of steam! And all of it surrounded by their closest friends and family at the ever so gorgeous Edgewater Lodge. Thank you Ellie & Kirk for making me a part of your wonderful celebration and for your kind friendship.

So what do you think when we say E-Session aka Engagement Session?
Well we think sexy, steamy, romantic, intimate, beautiful, unique, celebration and of course love. E-Sessions have come a long way from the stiff formal look that was required to send out an announcement. These days what I love about them is the perfect timing for an excuse to take a moment for yourself. In the planning and the real life fast pace, it,s a moment to pause, to just be and celebrate you! A chance to get comfy with the lens and to bring your own unique feel to the session.
Here are our top 10 from this past year;
#10 Keeping it fun, relax and playful where the smiles tell it all.
#9 Be part of the scenic beauty that surrounds us.
#8 A little Urban fun and a funky sign.
#7 After a while you forget I’m there and you just indulge in a quiet moment (Those are the best!)
#6 What can I say, a BW classic with Miss Macy (The Horse) feeling like she might be intruding.
#5 Bringing your own style and hobbies makes all the difference
#4 I did say steamy sexy love right?
#3 Bring in your personality with a little colour accent or a whole wall!
#2 Sunny afternoon, the wind blowing and a moment captured.
#1 Now nothing says sexy romantic more then a sunset, open barn and a warm blanket.
Which one is your favourite?
Jessica and Greg. What a true treat this engagement session was. They epitomize my belief that all things beautiful and inspirational are right in front of you. All you need to do is open your eyes and ‘see’.
When considering the location for their engagement shoot, they decided to keep it close to home, close to their hearts and close to their family. Yes, all three 4-pawed members that are adorably cute and super smart. Mix them in with a couple in love that are, shall we say, very comfortable with one another and it’s a beautiful thing.
Loved the day. Thanks Jessica & Greg!
Sometimes it’s that simple.
I have to say spending some time in Vancouver recently has perked my curiosity on Occupy Vancouver so I decided to check it out first hand and see what it would be like to be in the middle of it. After walking around for a bit, my eyes fell on this girl with short hair and a beautiful smile. She seemed totally comfortable in the environment and at peace with herself. I have to say, I was a little intrigued so I started following her with my camera pushed up against my eye. A few moments later, a guy dressed in a security uniform walked up to her and kissed her. They didn’t greet each other with words or gestures, just a passionate kiss and then walked away together hand in hand. Still no words.
In the middle of this civilized chaos, love doesn’t care what side you’re on it just happens.
I hope you appreciate the photography from the past 11 days that has been a part of my 30 day project. As some of you know, this is pushing my comfort zone but has also brought new energy and passion to my photographic journey. Not too long ago, you would never have found me in the middle of a protest capturing photos of the people on the streets.
But as I’ve learned, this doesn’t come without it’s blips. As I was lining up this photo a rather large rat decided to make my shoes part of his path from crossing the street. Mental note to self, mesh runners is the wrong choice of footwear if a rat is going to be walking over your feet. Eech! It took everything from deep within not to scream let alone continue standing still so I could get this shot. So, I really hope you like it. No, I really hope you love it because it still turns my stomach thinking back to that moment! Those poor people in all those tents!
