Kristin and Clyde held Pembroke’s wedding of the year last weekend, and it was a treat to be involved and capture the memories of two wonderful families joining together. As you may remember, we shot their engagement session a while back in some of the coolest spots, all with significant sentimental value to them for the family history.
Kristin and her girls got ready at the gorgeous Grey Gables Manor, and Shirley was so very gracious to give us a little tour and history lesson when we arrived. The home was built in 1911 by a wealthy lumber baron, A. E. Dunlop, and converted to a Bed and Breakfast in 2004. It’s Library Room, a century old oak library with a large original fireplace and windows made the perfect backdrop for the preparations.
I arrived at Clyde’s house to find things just getting started, so it gave lots of time for some great shots! You may remember Louie the Dog from the their engagement photos, and as Clyde’s constant companion, it was only fitting that he have his portrait taken too!
The wedding car was The Blue Goose, an impeccable LeBaron belonging to Kristin’s dad, and that also served as the wedding car when her parents were married as well…
I’m so in love with those delightful pink Louboutin’s!!
The Germania Club in Pembroke was made gorgeous by Steve Hanniman and his team of Creative Edge Studio, and it looked amazing! Yes, those are floral balls and crystal drapes hanging from the ceiling!!
I am always brought down by wedding day tears, but the following set of images literally made me cry when we opened them after the wedding…
The Blue Goose was looking pretty cool in the dark, rainy night…
We had a wonderful time at Kristin and Clyde’s wedding, and both families were so exceptional to work with–thank you to all involved for allowing us to be a part of the wonderful celebration you hosted in honour of an amazing couple!
Ivanette and Brian
Back when we first did the consult for Debra and Rob, Brian and I were thrilled to find out that they both were avid sportbike riders who wanted to incorporate their hobby into their wedding photography. In fact, I remember walking up to their house that night and excitedly pointing out the bike trailer to Brian! As you know, we love working out of the box, and these guys are a perfect fit.
Their first date included a ride to Calabogie Motorsports Park to watch a race, so it seemed only fitting to shoot their engagement session here. A huge thank you must go out to Jane and Glen, who gave us an amazing tour and access to the track to shoot this fantastic session!
How cute are they???
Rob has a wicked talent for pulling wheelies…
Thumbs up to a great session!!
I absolutely love the intensity of this shot…
A little knee draggin’ coming out of turn 19!
We were thrilled to find out that the new clubhouse has a state of the art classroom for teaching sessions, and 4 gorgeous high end suites, some that look out over the track! Can you say…honeymoon???
Rob, although a tried and true Chev man, was truely gracious to pose with Debra (and a Mustang) for these smokin’ hot photos…
What makes a better portrait backdrop than a Porsche and a Mustang??
Both Rob and Debra ride Suzuki motorcycles, and we thought they’d make a cool setting for some ring shots!
This is the gas cap of Debra’s gorgeous metallic chocolate brown GSXR750
Brian and I had such a wonderful afternoon with Debra and Rob…I got to drive on a racetrack (albeit in our Ford F150 and not on a bike), we got to hang out with this amazingly fun couple who are so much in love, AND we made some spectacular images! GREAT day at work!
This past weekend, we got together with Lama and Faisal in Montreal for their engagement photos, and we are in love with the images we were able to create! Their goal was to have a boutique style photos taken, and both the hotel and the stunning Sherbrooke neighborhood served as amazing backdrops for their gorgeous session.
I hope you enjoy the images of this wonderful couple as much as we enjoyed making them.
We were really excited when Jean and Roland told us they wanted to do their engagement session at the MacKenzie King Estate because that is where we had our own done last summer. We haven’t been back in the past year, so we were looking forward to revisiting some great memories and making some new ones. The grounds of the estate have breathtaking gardens, and Mr. King obviously had a quirky sense of design, as there are some pretty cool building remnants to delight any photographer…
Jean and Roland’s is the first wedding we booked for this year, and it’s for 10-10-10 which we think is going to make for some spectacular good luck and fortune for these two in the future!
Roland, although not the most nature loving guy we’ve met, was a great sport and despite the heat, didn’t complain once about climbing trees, getting dusty, or the miles and miles we made him walk…we even convinced him to get a little wet at the lake!
Jean has a beautiful calming sense about her, and yet has an infectious curiosity and willingness to try anything–I love that about her!
My brain almost blew up when Brian showed me this image–straight from the camera! This photograph is actually the perfect example of the brilliance of our relationship; sometimes, I relate an idea to Brian and then he makes even the coolest of ideas in my mind’s eye look bland by knocking the shot out of the park–with some lighting assistance from moi, of course!
We are really looking forward to Jean and Roland’s wedding this fall; stay tuned for more of this awesome couple!
Last weekend was a big one in the BH Photography camp–firstly, we booked two fabulous weddings back to back (Friday evening and Saturday) and the latter was our first same sex ceremony. We were both nervous and excited, because if you were to meet Matt and Alex, they are two very savvy guys who were planning the party of the year! That being said, our “first time” nerves were quickly settled at our consultation over coffee when the guys eagerly gave us some amazing ideas for our own wedding in October. Matt & Alex chose the Britannia Yacht Club as their venue and the staff did an amazing job! Every last detail was taken care of, however there was a rumour of one tablecloth being upside down. It was only a rumour…
Well, what a party! We had the honour of being Jamie & Matt’s official wedding photographers this past weekend in Carleton Place. Jamie has been Ivanette’s esthetician since we moved to Almonte and has become a great friend since. Matt and Jamie have been together for seven years, so when he proposed to Jamie last October she called us to make sure we were available for her wedding. Matt is a volunteer fireman with Carleton Place, and well, us firefighters can sure throw a party! I’m sure the good folks over at the Carleton Heritage Inn are going to need a break after two firefighter weddings in a row!
Here are some shots from Jamie & Matt’s wedding:
So it seems the boys had a little difficulty getting ready and had to rely on Jason’s expert knowledge to put them together!
Jamie and Matt had a wonderful service held at the Carleton Place United Church, where lots of laughs were had in a gorgeous relaxed ceremony!
After the ceremony, Jamie and Matt made their exit in first class, aboard Carleton Place’s ladder truck complete with lights and sirens! There were many congratulatory honks as they traveled up the main street…
We had a great day over at Riverside Park with lots of fun formals!
Once dinner was over, it was time to party, and Carleton Place’s Ocean Wave Fire Company sure knows how to get a party going!
And of course to finish the night off, the members of the Ocean Wave Fire Company had to gather in to get a photo with the gorgeous bride!
