It was just a perfect day.

Went to the beach took some shots around the Cobourg marina. Nice to spend that day walking the beach and enjoying time with my family and friends. It really was a perfect day.

While setting up for a family shoot I took a test shot of this teen on the bench. I love how all the elements have come together here, the ball cap, skateboard and him just hanging around being natural. To be honest I was just shooting to check my light levels. I don’t think he was expecting that we had begun. So both of us are at ease here.

Serendipity strikes again.

Cobourg Marina, Cobourg, Ontario, Canada

Cobourg Marina

What a beautiful day at the Cobourg beach, weather was perfect the beach was not too crowded. Spent the day walking the beach and Cobourg Marina taking photos. All in all this was one of the best days of the summer (so far). Sat on the pier to watch the sail boats drift by, nice quite moment spent there with my dad.

Bride & Bouquet

Bride & Bouquet

Bride & Bouquet, this shot was taken as we were waiting for our golf carts to arrive. The bride and I were chatting about the service and the guests. Since I was there to take pictures, I began to walk around her and get some detailed shots. As I took shots of her, her dress, etc. I continued to ask her questions about the guests and her family, this get her to relax allowing me to shoot around her. I was able to compose just by using the available light an background.

This is one of my favorites from this day, to me this photo shows her strength and at the same time I can see her feminine side.

Caught this moment as the bridal party was lining up to enter the reception hall. I am not sure who was more excited about the wedding the flower girl or the bride. 🙂

Blessing the Wedding

Wedding Wishes

At a recent wedding the guests were given a small card where they wrote wishes, blessings, and advice for the newlyweds. At various times during the meal one or more cards were taken from the box and read aloud. I loved this as it made the reception feel more intimate.

Reflections at Sunset

Reflections at Sunset

A sunset tends to make me stop and reflect on the day, a good time for soulful meditation. This image captures that feeling for me.

Around the Camp Fire

I nice moment captured at the end of a wonderful day.

For this shot I used a tripod, dragged the shutter and no flash since I wanted only use the fire light. I did have to wait for everyone to get quiet and not move too much. I did need to take several shots before I got this one.

Summer Ride

Summer Ride

Was at the beach laying down when I saw this bicycle leaning against the tree. This got me thinking about my bike when I was younger and how summers seemed so glorious. For me my summer evolved around my bike, my bike gave me freedom, I could ride to see my friends hang out then we would all ride together. We would ride to go swimming, to the park to play, to friends houses, we would even ride them on trails. It was truly a wonderful time.

The other interesting thing about this photo is that I had completely changed my perspective, which produced an interesting result.

Sorry about the delay in post however live is making me very busy and so I may not be posting as often but I will continue to post.

Cheers,
