Wedding Photography in Southern Ontario's Waterfall Country.

A surprise wedding!! Jody squared July 7, 2011

I was extremely honoured to be asked to photograph my old university roommate’s surprise wedding in June.  Jody M (roommate) married Jody K.  For those of you who haven’t heard of a surprise wedding, the basics are:

1.  Make up a story to get your family to your house (like a father’s day BBQ)

2.  Have the officiant and photographer ready to go.

3.  Tell family when they walk through the door that today is your wedding day.

4.  Have the wedding ceremony.

So, some great pictures and great reactions!

I love engagement sessions on farms!  

Crystal and Dave met me on her parent’s dairy farm for a great engagement session.  We had all kinds of various spectators…cows…cats…birds and more.

I love  the results, so here are a few of my favourites.

Some in the barn………………

I love that you can see the cows in the background of these ones.

I’m very new to blogging, so here I go.

Recently I did a fun family photoshoot for my brother’s girlfriend’s family, and had the chance to take some great pictures of the lovely couple as well.

This was at a great rural property south of Shelburne, north of Orangeville.  We walked the property, filled with picturesque hay fields, apple trees and beautifully flowering ragweed

(no sneezing).


I love this one, they were working very hard to keep their eyes open in the nicely setting sunlight.

Chris is an amazing piano player, and is part of the Settler’s Creek Band.

Chris and Ashely are the proud owners of two great poochies – Tank and Sadie, pictured above with the happy couple.a vintage feel to complete one of my favourite couples photos from this shoot.  I love the way the soft grass surrounds them.
