My favourite thing about photography is getting to know families through all the milestones of their lives. I have been taking photos of these two and their adorable daughter for a few years now- and they are just the loveliest family. We always have a wonderful time together- and this was one of the MOST […]

There is something very romantic about a ‘first look’ ….. Some brides want the big reveal while they walk down the aisle…but others love to take a private moment with their husband-to-be before the guests arrive and the rush of the ceremony takes over. Megan chose to meet her groom on a lovely bridge, just […]
I love this photo for so many reasons- he is so focused on his love, she is looking out dreamily….
I just can’t decide if I like this image more in colour or Black & White. Which do you prefer and Why?
The following photos were taken within about a 15 minute window- just in the few golden moments at the start of a sunset. There were some changes in light as I went along, but most of the differences between these photos are the result of changing exposure in-camera, and adding off-camera flash. I made very few modifications in photoshop- I cropped slightly, cloned out an ugly electrical line, and added a bit of saturation to enhance the sunset, but otherwise the lighting differences are Straight-out-of-camera.
In the photo above, however, the couple isn’t well lit, so I added an off-camera flash for a different look. You can still see the cyans of the ocean, but the bride & groom are more the focus of the image.
Adding off-camera flash in a gazebo with a white ceiling, perfect for reflecting the light, creates an image with focus on the bride & groom, but also allows the definition and colour of the sunset behind them.
I love the creative freedom that comes from changing light!
Do you have a lighting preference among these images?
I recently had the pleasure of working with a bride and groom who were excited about letting me do some fun lighting! I am really happy with the images I got, and SO glad that I invested in a creative lighting photography workshop with Christina Craft from Funky Town Photography. I learned so much, and putting what I learned into practice is crazy fun!

I titled this “part 1” because I had such a great time at the wedding, and got so many great images, that I think I’ll need more than one blog post to share my favourites from the day.
They were hoping for a beach wedding surrounded by the fall colours in gorgeous Picton, Ontario- but the blustery cold wind required a change of plans. Still, we got out to the beach for a few fun shots, and, regardless of weather, the wedding was LOVELY and so much FUN! Rosie was a gorgeous bride, and I loved meeting the couple’s family and friends.

Meet Rosanne and Jeff. They’re just as nice and as sweet as they look! Last week we got rained on just as we met in the parking lot, so this week we were THRILLED to have lovely evening sun for our walk through the waterfront park. I can’t wait for their outdoor fall wedding, on […]
I was getting a critique from another photographer (a very experienced photographer -one of my photography heroes – Christina Craft of www.funkytownphotography.com,) and she noted that many of my favourite shots are shot in portrait orientation (4 wide x 6 tall) and she was recommending taking more in landscape orientation (6 wide by 4 tall)….(my dad says the same thing about many of my images- his reason is because landscape displays better on a computer monitor) but as the day progressed through discussions, we realized that I may actually SEE the world in different dimensions than she does.
I’ve added two photos here that are similar in pose, yet different in composition… and I’m still reflecting on the differences that exist simply because I turned my camera.
I know that I find myself turning my camera on its side very frequently- sometimes the shot just ‘feels right’ that way- I’m trying hard right now to really THINK about the photographic decisions I make as I go, to try to understand and define my own style.
There is always room for a different point of view … or Another Perspective if you will… I just wondered, which way do you prefer to shoot? What influences your decision? Is there some elemental difference between the two?
