When I said that I was only taking 10 weddings a year people thought I was crazy. How could you stop doing the thing your good at?

Well I don’t see it that way at all. By only taking 10 weddings a year it allows me to be more creative and a spend more time with each client.

And in the case of Dorie and Paul……..it allows me to book a wedding 2 weeks before the big event.

As soon as I got on the phone with Dorie I knew we were going to have a good time. Dorie and Paul have been together for 12 years and decided last minute that it was the time to “get hitched”. I am just so glad I was available to shoot their intimate affair!

They were married this past Saturday at Toronto City Hall.

Joanne and Eric and I met for the first time via skype. They where in Dubai on a job and wouldn’t be back to Canada for a couple months. But even from that first conversation I knew they had come to the right place. They will be married June 14th at The Rectory Cafe on Toronto Island. So why wouldn’t we start our barebonelove session on the ferry?

Rachel and Ryan are one of the sweetest couples that I have met to date. When I said that by the end of the session I would have them making out in public. They just giggled and said that their southwestern sensibilities would probably wouldn’t allow it……..soooo sweet!

And I think that comes through in this set of pictures!

They will be married next spring at the beautiful Hauser Hall.

So you may have noticed that I have been absent from the blog for a little while.

Well……I needed some down time…..but now I’m back and refreshed and ready to blogdigitty blog!

Over the holiday break I went to one of the most inspiring and fun workshops I have ever had the pleasure of attending.

MYSTIC 5 in CT.

Not only did I learn a lot about gear and technique, But I also was refreshed in mind and spirit. And  the partying until 4:30 every night was also good for the soul!

Mystic consists of 300 “students” and 15 speakers and presented by Walter Van Dusen.

Some of my favorite speakers were:

Dave and Quinn from DQ studio’s ~ fantastic shooters and people  ~ techie info galore ~ Thank you David for introducing me to evernote ( Yeah Canadian’s!!!!!)

David Williams ~ who’s presentation makes you cry no matter how tough you are. ~ Thank you David for reminding us to take images of our lives………not just our clients.

Story Wilkins ~ Wonderful to have finally met her……now I see what all the fuss is about, not only a talented photographer but also an amazing person. She hails from Toronto….so nice to see so many Canadians @ Mystic

Jerry Ghionis ~ This man has so much energy and love to give……you can’t be in a room with him and not want to give him a hug. Plus his work is stunning!

Tri-Coast ~Cody and Mike put on an amazing demonstration about off camera flash that I actually understood…….which is a HUGE accomplishment seeing that my massive learning disability involves #’s and memory. ~ Plus they are incredibly down to earth funny human beings!

Here are some shots to accompany the gushing! ( I didn’t bring my camera out often…..so there aren’t very many shots…..but these ones get the point across….we had a TON of fun!)

This is Tim Forbes……..his work is stunning check it out here.
