Corporate Christmas

Walking to work this morning I saw this Christmas tree infront of a local TV station. The Christmas tree makes the area look a little more festive. I got to thinking many people have taken a picture of this tree. I loved this Christmas tree yet I wanted to do something different, not just add a filter and upload it to Instagram. So I took a moment to walk around the tree to take it all in. I must admit I did feel a litte silly at first. I then saw the building in the background and like how the lines were all converging upwards. So angling myself and ignoring the people who were staring I took the photo.

…and yes added a filter and posted it to Instagram. šŸ™‚

Fall a Glorious Season

Canadian Geese

Fall A Glorious Season – Canadian Geese

Thanks giving weekend here in Canada allowed time for a walk in the park and the opportunity to capture the beginnings of a glorious season. When we hear the call of the Canadian geese overhead we know that it’s either spring or fall. In either case it is beautiful.

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.

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 herĀ feminineĀ 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. šŸ™‚

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.
