Maybe it’s not technical properties what make a compelling image.I love this shot, it’s grainy, blown out in both directions. But that leap Erin is taking into Will’s arms – it sums up their whole experience for me – joyous and trusting, it’s what a marriage should be.

Here’s my photo of the head table – look at it, I know some things stand out to you, then think about them – I want to hear your thoughts. See, I spent quite some time editing this image, or four images actually. It’s a composite of 3 groups, plus 1 for the background. The […]

Erin & Will – congratulations on gettin’ murried. I had the absolute pleasure of photographing Erin & Will’s wedding this weekend. Despite all location scouting going to shit (it rained… then snowed!) I had planned some indoor contingencies and packed some big lights to take good portraits. This one, though, was a bit simpler. I […]

Sorry I’ve been quiet on this blog lately, but as you can see from the photo, I’ve been working feverishly on editing images from Tara & Tony’s wedding. We’re putting together a really great wedding album for them, though I’ve often used some standard book providers in the past, I wanted to up the scale […]

Another snapshot from Erinn’s wedding. One thing I’ll have to keep an eye out on, for my own couples, when shooting weddings I’m paid there to do, is going to be to take a small amount of time away from the safety shots – the gimme’s. What I need to do is get the portrait, […]

Erinn & Meera got Married this weekend… Erinn’s the eyes beyind Urban Nation and is a big fan of film photography. Meera, his lovely bride, puts up with his hobby like all our significant others’ do. I was not the photographer for this event which was a nice change. I got to sit back, relax, […]

Psyche! I totally took a better photo than yesterday’s post. I think this is it. It probably would have been cooler if I had managed to slap a polarizing filter on the lens though – really darken the sky and bring out the cool cloud detail. Still – I got this one printed up nice […]

Shooting Raissa & Adam’s wedding last year taught me a few very valuable lessons about wedding photography. One of them is to take a lot of shots – there were probably a dozen of this grouping – and this is the best. You’ll notice it’s far from perfect. Realistically I should have taken, maybe, double […]

I was very fortunate this week to have one my photos critiqued on the esteemed David DuChemin’s Within the Frame Podcast episode 6. He looked at a previous photo I had submitted to the Flickr group of Eden. This is the sort of thing I need – I CRAVE it. Not the typical “this sucks” […]

Yet another shot of Raissa on her wedding day – for this I tried out the much lauded Nik Software Silver Efex Pro, for the Black and White conversion. I’ve gotta say, I’m pretty impressed with the control and output it gave me. The plug-in (I used it out of Lightroom) on it’s own is […]

One of my favourite photos from Raissa’s Wedding. Adam’s (the Groom’s) niece was bobbing around, obviously bored with all the adult festivities; taking advantage of this, I decided to delegate some of my own tasks to someone with, hopefully, a unique perspective. I handed Eden my favourite lil camera that could (the Panasonic LX3) and […]

Last night was an AWESOME wedding with Raissa (the Rza) and her lovely man-bride Adam. We set up a bit of a photobooth with some white seamless and 3 strobes and made a go at taking some fun picks with her and her guestsThey threw a wicked party, ran the whole show on time if […]

This photo is an example of a good crop (or so I believe). Composition is truly one of my greatest hurdles in photography – I have the technology down, and while I’m not the best photoshopper, I certainly can get by. It’s framing that shot, in a valuable few seconds that truly eludes me – […]

Well, here’s the happy couple from last week. It’s hard to believe they’ve been together 9 years, I still remember Jenny coming down from Oakville to pickup Ernesto from High school in her, errrr… pickup. Since I was some official/unofficial wedding photographer I’ve been processing photos of their beautifully happy faces all night and had […]

The Toronto All-Star Big Band played at Ernesto’s and Jenny’s wedding yesterday; the band was the reason they met. There’s something spectacular about being entertained by live music – a wedding DJ just doesn’t seem like he/she’d cut it.
