Mark and Sarah getting married

On Labour Day weekend, Eastern and Western Canada came together to celebrate the marriage of Mark and Sarah. The weather was gorgeous, the setting was elegant, the couple was radiant, and the guests were ready to party.

There's nothing more natural than a bride and her bridesmaids walking through a parking garage ;)

Sarah was holding it together pretty well .... oh, until about now.

The, ahem, amateur photographers, were itching to take their first photographs of the newlyweds.

OMG! What an adorable grandmother!

(Hi Judy!)

Some congratulations from complete strangers in Old Montreal.

A la Tarantino ...

Some gorgeous light for a gorgeous couple.

Time to party!

Thank you Mark and Sarah for letting me share your special day!

September song

September, thank you for trying to make up for the all the grey and rainy days we had in June, July and August.

The sun shines high above
The sounds of laughter
The birds swoop down upon
The crosses of old grey churches
We say that we're in love
While secretly wishing for rain
Sipping coke and playing games
September's here again

I want to be a part of it

Whenever I visit New York, that's exactly how I feel. Like I'm plugged into something wonderful and amazing. I've managed to go once or twice a decade since I was in high school. This summer TB and I drove to New York for the first time. In my mind, it has always been a place I had to fly to - probably because I grew up in Toronto. But driving makes it a much cheaper trip and so much more accessible. We vowed to visit at least once a year from now on. I can't wait for our next trip!

Ryan & Dinah getting married

Ryan is a business associate and friend and I was absolutely thrilled when he asked me to photograph his wedding. I'm warning you now though. This is one adorable couple.

At the end of the portrait session, I decided to have a little fun with this pair. I asked Ryan to do his best Zoolander impersonation. Given that he's an actor and comedian, I knew he'd be up for it. Look out Ben Stiller!

Fabulous wind action!
The ceremony was very traditional and emotional. Although the guests couldn't see Ryan and Dinah's faces during the ceremony, I was in a perfect position to see their every smile and tear.

There was much dancing and rejoicing.

And some damn fine food.

Congratulations Ryan and Dinah! You truly deserve each other ... and I mean that in the best way possible :)
