I had the pleasure of photographing Melissa & Keith’s wedding this October in Renfrew. It was a little cold (6 degrees) and very windy, but nobody complained, we had sunshine! There’s something about small town churches that’s just amazing, the light, the intimacy, it’s like they have a personality of their own. St. Michael’s Catholic church in Douglas is no exception, being just around the corner from Melissa’s family farm. Their wedding was such a pleasure to photograph as both families are very relaxed, kind and generous.

Well, this was a close one! Both Melissa and I were watching last Friday’s weather like a hawk. Even just before heading to Renfrew, I did a check on every weather source I had available! After meeting Melissa & Keith in Renfrew to grab a couple quick shots with their dog, we headed out to the ball field in Dacre, where as Keith put it, “the magic happened”. It was 3 years ago at the annual Dacre ball tournament that Melissa and Keith met, and baseball continues to be one of the ways they spend their time together. When we arrived at the ball diamond, the rain had started! We waited for about 15 minutes and it passed. Just as we were finishing up, the rain came back and we headed out to the 300 acre family hunt camp for some photos among the dilapidated buildings that were once an early settlement.
Ivanette and I are looking forward to their wedding this October! Enjoy the preview:
When we sit down with couples, we like to get to know who they are and what they enjoy. We like to convey the couple’s personality, and in this case, their trust in each other! We are looking forward to their wedding this summer.

And for those of you who may be a little concerned for Erin’s Safety, here’s a little behind the scenes video to ease your mind:
We first met Christine at Arnprior’s first wedding show a few months ago. We immediately seemed to get along very well and after the 3 of us chatted for over half an hour, she went home to discuss things with Benton. A few days later we received a very nice e-mail requesting to meet up. Christine and Benton made the drive to Almonte from Barry’s Bay a few days later and we set a date to capture their engagement photos. We had a great time despite the foot of snow that was on the ground at the park near Combermere (just outside of Barry’s Bay). As we were wrapping up the session, Benton mentioned that as a child, he had helped his grandfather build a monument a few kilometers away to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the 1944 Warsaw uprising in Poland. It is designed to commemorate a church that was destroyed during the Nazi invasion. We thought it would be a fitting tribute to their culture, family, and heritage, and the perfect way to end their engagement session.
Enjoy, and Merry Christmas!

We first met Val & Marc at the spring Wedding Show. Ivanette had a great long chat with them about their wedding plans for October 2010, and how they were looking for a photographer who thought outside the box. Yes, originally this happy couple was going to take their time to plan their wedding. However, about a month later they contacted us, stating that Marc was to be deployed with the military and they had to move their wedding up to this year. After many frantic phone calls, we finally found a date that worked for their venue, the Renfrew Golf Club, as well as ourselves. Val & Marc had a wonderful (but chilly) ceremony and reception that highlighted their personalities and the love they have for each other.
