... it's worth a shot.

Canada Day Fireworks

Now that I've shot fireworks enough that I am comfortable with the basic setup, I wanted to try to give them some "context" (photographer-thinking for "not just lights floating in the air").   I like that you can see the crowd in most of the shots and the distinctive willow trees of Southside park.

To see some more great fireworks shots check out Colin's fireworks shot from high above Cambridge, ON.  You can see the lights of the city and some cool skyline.  If Colin's name sounds familiar you might remember him from his family photos.

Bright Wedding: Lisa + Paul

Beth and I travelled to Bright, Ontario to shoot Lisa and Paul's wedding at their farm. It was a very funny day weather-wise - super hot plus rainy but it was awesome how friendly and welcoming everyone was to us.

I always feel honoured when I get chosen as someone's wedding photographer but it's a bit nicer when your client is a great photographer in her own right.

Thanks to Lisa and Paul and their families for such great day!

Unrelated Side Note: Bright always reminds me of younger days: Our bus route to Innerkip Public School took us all the way out to Bright and Sarah Jane took figure skating lessons in Plattsville and I used to drive through Bright to pick her up on cold winter nights.

Alicia and Conor's "Day After" Shoot

This afternoon of shooting was great fun (as always with Alicia and Conor). We drove out to the camp of a friend of ours' near London and shot around this great old mansion that is the centre piece of the property. Alicia was brave out there in her strapless dress... after doing a 15 km run in the morning.

Party of Five at Western

I had an amazing afternoon on Monday shooting a Party of Five session with our friend Kristin. Kristin used to work for us at camp where we all called her Mazurka, a camp name she earned because it is a style of Polish folk music and Kristin was taking Music at the University of Western Ontario. Monday was Kristin's graduation and she and a group of four friends hired me to come and take pictures of them on their last day of university.

Congratulations to all of you and thanks for a fun afternoon!

Dave had to leave early so the last few shots were of just the women.

Thanks again!
