Prince Edward County Wedding Photographer – Crystal Palace Wedding

Heather and Korey live in Durham Region and decided on the comfort of the Crystal Palace in Picton for their Wedding day …well.. not just a single day but a vacation for a whole bunch of their closest friends and family including a week of pre-wedding celebrations with tours of The County wineries and attractions. Their quirky combined sense of humor (evident in their choice of grand entrance music/dance – the Carlton and Fresh Prince of Bel Air dance routine – “Jump on […]

Napanee Wedding Photographer – Doghouse Studios

oh Doghouse Studios …how I love thee.  You combine my favorite things to shoot; weddings and abandoned buildings.  Whenever I get an inquiry for Doghouse I instantly get giddy and can’t wait to meet the couple because they have uniqueness about them that lures them to this adorable old building for their wedding. Courtney and Jason are, indeed, unique.  Instead of getting dressed in their hotel Courtney decided to get ready in the ‘dance floor’ room at Doghouse because she […]

Kingston Wedding Photographer – Renaissance Event Centre

Shooting in downtown Kingston is excellent …part of that is because there’s a lot of pubs nearby that you can kill time in if you’re running ahead of schedule.  For Meghan’s wedding day that included a stop at the Tir Nan Og for a glass of wine (with a straw) for her and the girls. One of my favorite parts of Meghan and Andrew’s wedding day was the Dad/Daughter first look.  I’ve done a lot of first looks this year […]

Prince Edward County Wedding Photographer – Miss J Boudoir

I’ll be honest.  Boudoir is something I’d never really considered shooting.  I normally refer boudoir requests to one of my friends who are more experienced in the genre.  I never want to risk not performing to my own expectations and letting a client down by providing subpar images and boudoir is something I’ve had zero experience.  J is an experienced photographer in her own right (we’ve shot a crapload of weddings together in the last 3-4 years) When she asked me to […]

Kingston Wedding Photographer – Penny and Jarrett’s Cottage Wedding

Arriving at Penny’s family cottage with the threat of rain overhead Jarrett was checking his weather app frequently and saying “it’s gonna pass, no big deal …we’re going for it!”  The backup plan was a houseparty (they play in a band together and both figured they’d played house shows with more people than at the wedding so they could pull that off if need be. The rain held – they got married on the ‘swimming rock’ in front of 70 […]

Kingston Wedding Photographer – Cataraqui Creek Wedding

Rachel and Kevin love the outdoors and nature as evident by her gift of an awesome compass to him after their bride/groom (so they don’t get lost).  Their venue choice of the Little Cataraqui Creek Conservation Authority’s Outdoor Centre was perfect.  On a beautiful (and verrrry hot) day, they made use of that outdoor space with only the dinner and dancing being inside the building. Here’s some of my favorites from their day as a sneak peek :) Venue: Little Cataraqui Creek Conservation […]

Kingston Wedding Photographer - Island Queen Wedding - Kingston Wedding Photography

Kingston Wedding Photographer – Island Queen Wedding

Normally the day after a wedding my legs are sore, my back aches and my arms feel like jello from busting my ass the day before and hustling.  The day after Stephanie and Colin’s wedding my sides hurt from laughing so hard all day. By the time we got on the Island Queen for the reception (after a wander around the Queen’s University campus for portraits) the party was in full swing and the laughs didn’t stop for the rest […]

Prince Edward County Wedding Photographer – Cailin and Lange – Fields on West Lake Wedding

There was laughter, there were tears, there were combinations of the two at the same time …these two know how to throw a party! When I met Cailin and Lange a little more than a year ago as they started to kick their wedding planning in to high gear, Lange’s insanely awesome sense of humor was evident as well as Cailin’s patience for that sense of humor.  Their obvious adoration of each other infected me immediately and I knew I wanted to […]

Prince Edward County Wedding Photographer – Laura and Matt – The Wexford House

Laura and Matt had their first date at a beloved Kingston institution …no, not Kingston Pen …the Toucan!  I’ve know the bride for a number of years through mutual friends and when she e-mailed asking me to shoot her wedding I was so thrilled I think I forgot to check my calendar to see if I was already booked. They got the married yesterday at the Wexford House in Picton on gorgeous day with perfect weather.  Laura had a beaming smile on […]

Prince Edward County Wedding Photographer – Jenna and Ryan Wine Tour

I’ve known Jenna for a few years as a fellow Picton Wedding photographer.  I often shoot for Jenna’s company – About Image Photography – whenever I’m not booked for my own job and I’ll be shooting her wedding this September. Her and her fiance, Ryan, are planning a big DIY party for their Prince Edward County Wedding in Picton at the Mill House this September and needed to gather the wine for the tables.  They decided to rustle up a bus (thanks to a bridesmaid) […]

Kingston Engagement Photography - Kingston Wedding Photographer - Rachel and Kevin

Kingston Engagement Photography – Rachel and Kevin

I usually ask my couples to tell me the story of their engagement.  It helps me to learn more about them to incorporate into our pre-wedding session.  I want to know what they like to do together and where they like to spend their time so I can help them create meaningful photos in a place they feel comfortable or in doing something that they like to do as a couple. Kevin and Rachel spend a lot of time canoeing on the […]

Kingston Wedding Photography - Kerrianne and Michael

Kingston Wedding Photographer – Amherstview Golf Club Wedding

Michael and his groomsmen started the day off at the Expert Tees pro mini-golf course for a quick round before heading back to the Green Acres Inn to get ready while Kerrianne and her bridesmaids were at the other end of the building avoiding each other when going outside by sending texts to other bridal party members. Before heading for the walk down the aisle at Amherstview Golf Club their first look at the Inn was a sweet moment for each of them as Kerrianne […]

Kingston Engagement Photographer – Cailin and Lange

I met up with Cailin and Lange early last summer here in Kingston to discuss their wedding plans and immediately knew I wanted to shoot their wedding.  Their sense of humor, their obvious love and adoration for each other (and Rugby) was something I wanted to photograph.  They told me the story of Lange proposing on the Rideau Canal (nearby to where they live in Ottawa) and we talked about shooting their engagement photos there in the winter.  Fast forward […]

Kingston Engagement Photographer – Ashley and Mike

A cool breeze followed us around the Queen’s University campus after an incredibly hot day in the city.  We chased the sunset in between spits of rain and made some photos.  Their wedding will be held in Napanee at DogHouse Studios (which quickly becoming one of my favorite venues) in August Here’s a few of my favorites from their Kingston engagement photo session

Kingston Engagement Photographer – Kerrianne and Michael

I met Kerrianne and Michael a couple of months ago at my usual meeting spot (The Mansion – a great selection of beers on tap too!) and we discussed their rapidly approaching wedding.  Immediately I enjoyed Kerrianne’s energy and Michaels easy going nature.  Their wedding @ Amherstview Golf Club was going to be a party and I definitely had to shoot it. We met this past weekend in downtown Kingston at sunrise and made our way through confederation basin as they […]

Gananoque Engagement Photographer – Stephanie and Colin

Stephanie and Colin are set to hit Lake Ontario for their Kingston wedding aboard the Island Queen in July.  They’re from the Kingston + Ottawa areas respectively but now live in Calgary.  While they were home for Easter (and a wedding shower featuring a beer tasting from Gananoque Brewing Co.!) we figured it’d be a great time to get together and wander around Gananoque for a while to make some photos.

Peterborough Wedding Photography - Viamede Resort - Kyle and Lauren

Viamede Resort Wedding Photographer – Kyle and Lauren

One of the best parts of a creative career is collaborating with peers.  Having the opportunity to work with my favorite photographers is a chance to challenge myself to think outside of the norm, break patterns in my own work and crack some jokes with a friend. In Oct of 2014 my favorite newborn photographer, Jenn Munro, called and asked me to tag along to Kyle and Lauren’s wedding at Viamede Resort near Peterborough Ontario  …she claims she doesn’t shoot weddings but she definitely […]

Kingston Engagement Photographer – Jessica and Derek

If you come back to my blog periodically you’ll probably recognize these two from Derek’s proposal to Jessica at Stauffer Library on the Queen’s University Campus last November.  If you don’t remember them, Derek’s the dude that planned an elaborate scavenger hunt for Jessica.  His clues taking her all over the city finding the answers that were related to their relationship, culminating in leading her back the spot they met at Stauffer Library where he got down on one knee and popped […]

Trenton Wedding Photography – Kelly and Eric – Occasions by the Bay Wedding

Sometimes I don’t get to meet my clients before their wedding day – Kelly and Eric were one of those couples.  They live in Welland and were choosing Trenton as their wedding location as a halfway point for family travelling from Easter Ontario and Western Ontario.  We’d chatted by E-mail and Facebook messages and I knew they were a couple I wanted to photograph. When Kelly arrived she beamed with excitement as she rushed to give me a hug exclaiming […]

Waupoos Estates Wedding – Prince Edward County Wedding Photography

The threat of rain and 50km/hr winds would not dampen the spirit of Beth and Andrew for their Picton wedding at one of Prince Edward County’s awesome vineyards, Waupoos Estates.  From the constant laughter in the Bridal suite while the girls helped Beth prepare for her big day to the smile on Andrew’s face when he first saw Beth walk down the aisle, the weather held off and the sun prevailed (even though it was a bit windy) and a gorgeous wedding […]

Jenny and Owen - Kingston Wedding Photography - Howe Island Wedding

Howe Island Wedding – Jenny and Owen

ahhh Howe Island B&B …you’ll forever be etched into my brain as a beautiful spot for a wedding (and the owners will not only treat you like family but have you in stitches laughing.) Jenny and Owen now live in Vancouver, were married in Vegas, and decided to have their reception back home at the Howe Island B&B. The rain couldn’t damper the smile on either of their faces and the spirit of a small invasion of Aussie’s made the […]

Rayna and Andrew held their Kingston Wedding at Leopard Frog Farm just north of the City under a gorgeous blue sky on a beautiful August day. Their infectious laughter, Rayna’s beaming smile and Andrew awesome sense of humor (combined with his dashing good looks in that suit) made the day truly theirs and one for the books. Any wedding that has MacKinnon Brothers beer on tap is a good one :) A big thank you to Maria Offin Photography for 2nd shooting […]

Kingston Family Photography – The Sweets @ Murney Tower Gazebo

The Sweets and I have a standing date for family photos every year – Oct 12 (their anniversary) – at the Gazebo near Murney Tower in Kingston (where they were married).  Thanksgiving thwarted our plans by a day so we met up on the Holiday Monday to make some photos of their newly expanded family (little dude is 5 months old now). I met this awesome family when our son, Emmett, started day care with their daughter.  We soon realized […]

Napanee Family Photography – The Groen Family

I’ve known Kevin and Susannah and Kevin for a few years (we call them ‘the childless years’) and have shot each one of their kids as they’ve grown up.  With their newest addition now 8 months old we decided it was time to get together and create some new family portraits for their stash.  Susannah is an avid photographer too, so it was nice for her to get out from behind the camera and “get some photos with me in […]

Kingston Family Photography – The Chekan Family @ Queen’s University

Kim and I went to highschool together and she went to Queen’s University.  Now living in Pittsburgh they came home for Thanksgiving weekend at the cottage and we figured it was a great time to get together to catch up, shoot some photos with her husband and super awesome kids and show them around her Alma Mater. Here are my favorites from our short session on the campus:

Adam + Rebecca wanted to update their walls with some new family photos and Rebecca likes to jog along the KP Trail so we met up there on a cool evening in October to take in the fall colors and let Owen loose :) Here’s a few of my favorite photos from the session:

Meghan and Andrew – Kingston Fall Fair Engagement

Meghan and Andrew had their hearts set on having their engagement photos done at the Kingston Fall Fair.  We arrived and went for a few rides (including my first ever ride on a ferris wheel) and had some fun playing games and doing carnival things.

Kingston Family Photography - The Rogall Family

Kingston Family Photography – The Rogalls @ Victoria Park

Char and Mark’s little dudes share a special bond with my son – all of them had spent time in the NICU @ Kingston General Hospital (although at different times).  When we were chatting about what we were going to do for their family photos they both agreed that baseball is a huge part of their lives and they wanted to incorporate their (and their kids’) love of the game.  They spend a lot of time throwing the ball and practicing in […]

Beth and Andrew – Trent University Engagement Photography

Andrew proposed to Beth on the back steps of the Bata Library on the Trent University campus and during their consult we were discussing what to do for their engagement photos when he had the idea of going back there.  It’s a spot they both loved spending time at while in school.  The library sits on a riverbank and with its seclusion, made a great spot to pop the question and a great place to snuggle up and make some […]

Kingston Maternity Photography - Liza and Jesse

Liza and Jesse +1 – 37 weeks!

Liza and Jesse decided to have a couple of sessions to document the arrival of their little one.  We met up at Kingston Mills for the first session and decided to split the 2nd session (at 37 weeks) between their cottage and Jesse’s family farm. Here’s a few of my favorites from the evening …I’m pretty excited to hear the gender of their little person when he/she arrives!

Jenny and Dave - Trenton Wedding Photography

Jenny and Dave – Trenton Wedding Photography

From the moment I arrived to shoot the guys getting ready I could tell this was going to be a party.  Slow to get started the gentlemen had enjoyed themselves a little too much the night before and were lazily watching the world cup match on the TV and slowly getting in to gear to help Dave celebrate his love for Jenny that afternoon by getting married. With a gorgeous day overhead they were married in the beautifully groomed front yard […]

Katie called me last October and we chatted for a while about the wedding her and Brennan were planning for the following summer.  She said she’d seen my work on a couple’s personal blog and wanted to know if I was free for her date.  I was excited at the opportunity to shoot at Doghouse Studios in Napanee where they were holding their reception, a venue I was really keen on shooting in.  It’s a combination of my favorite things to photograph – old factories […]

Kingston Family Photography at Lake Ontario Park with Jamie, Michelle and Baby L I met Jamie, Michelle and baby L  just at the end of a rainy Saturday.  We debated on rescheduling but figured it was worth a shot to go out in between downpours to see if we could get some great evening shots before baby L conked out for the night. We lucked out and, although the grass was too wet to sit and play in for L, we […]

Jessica and Derek – Proposal at Stauffer Library

Surprise Proposal Photography @ Stauffer Library, Queen’s University – Jessica and Derek Jessica was one of my son’s favorite day care teachers (she’s now a school teacher.)  I’d photographed her and her sisters as a present for their parents in 2012.   When Derek called saying he was going to propose and wanted me to photograph it for him I was pretty excited. They met via likealittle – a now defunct social network site designed to allow students to post anonymous flirts with people […]

Hillier Creek Estates Wedding – Trenton Wedding Photography

I grew up in Trenton and although I’ve now been living in Kingston longer than I lived in Trenton, it’s still home (and home to my mom).  I’d never photographed a wedding back home so when Caitlin asked if I was available I was excited. I arrived at Matt’s house to do my 2nd shooter duties covering the Groom and found the guys hanging out in the back yard playing with Hooch (their beloved fur friend) and razzing the Groom.  After […]

Kingston Wedding Photographer – Victor and Amelia

I LOVE black and white photos. When my wife (Stephanie) and I got married in 2001 we asked our photographer to shoot b/w film because we both love the classy and timeless look of it.  Each year I make a personal project out of 1 wedding I’ve shot and process the complete day in b/w.  From this past year I chose Victor and Amelia’s wedding – this was one of my 2nd shooting jobs for the fabulous Gerald McGrath of GPM Photography. Victor and Amelia’s awesome […]

Rayna and Andrew – Kingston Engagement

Rayna and Andrew love the water and spend a lot of time paddle-boarding and camping.  They’ll be being married lakeside, north of Kingston, later this summer.  We met on a beautiful Sunday morning to shoot their engagement session near Lake Ontario. Andrew is a joker and I’ve been told that the wedding will be more of a family party than a wedding day.  I love parties …I’m all in :)

Tiffany and Mike - Kingston Wedding Photographer - Rideau Acres Wedding Photography

Tiffany and Mike – Kingston Wedding

Tiffany and Mike were married in early February on a very snowy day.  They contacted me after their wedding to see if I’d be available to shoot some more portraits as the weather prohibited spending a lot of time outside.  We met at the Kingston Mills Locks and spent the late afternoon wandering around and showing some love.  The newlyweds were still just as beaming as they were on their wedding day a couple of weeks earlier.

Kingston Wedding Photographer – Jenny and Tervor

Fort Henry Wedding with Jenny and Trevor in Kingston, Ontario. Jenny and Trevor were married at Fort Henry on the raniest day of 2013 but some damp weather was not going to stop them from having a party.  The fairy tale wedding theme was a gorgeous setting with pinks and white brightening up the day for everyone as these two laughed and celebrated their love. I’d been the 2nd shooter at Jenny’s sister wedding a couple of years earlier with the awesome […]

Dana and Mike’s Brockville Wedding day started at the Holiday Inn Express and then on to the home of Dana’s mother.  A lovely backyard wedding with giant corn field on one side and a deep forest on the other made for fun shooting with so many options so close by.  Their tented reception area turned in to a humongous party, as planned, and their friends celebrated by dancing and singing along to every word of every song at top volume.

Prince Edward County Wedding Photographer – Fields on West Lake

True love is an act of fate. For Nick and Carrie that fate fell upon them on wheels … a cross country bike trip in the U.S. in 2008 to be precise.  Nick from Canada and Carrie hailing from the U.S.  They met, parted ways, skyped, flew, trained, biked and skyped some more.  As avid travelers and Carrie being a travelling nurse; they’d seen a lot of the world.  Except Picton.  Add Picton to their map now :) A truly […]

Jordan and Emily’s wedding @ the Crystal Palace was a very emotional ceremony, a crazy fun dance party, and a ‘one-upsmanship’ contest to see the bride and groom kiss at the reception. An amazing day for two wonderful people and […]
