Well the babymoon is over and I’m officially back to work.

I photographed Maggie + Rafal back in August of 2009. I think it was a test……they soon were engaged and I was booked to shoot their wedding.

Even though my fingers almost froze off during the outdoor photo session…..I think we manages to get some pretty cool shots.

Maggie’s attention to detail made my job so easy. Everywhere you looked there was something to take a picture of.

Sarah and Chris got married in their family greenhouse in Milton. It was a photographers dream.

Not only did the greenhouse act as a giant soft box that made everything look amazing. But Sarah and Chris had paid so much attention to detail that it made my head spin!

From the flowers to the favors and the basket of flip flops for guests………it was perfect.

I’ll let the photo’s do the talking!
