It was nice to shoot a little wedding for a high school friend in Whitby.  It was just a little intimate wedding and I had a nice time taking some images for a sweet friend.  Congratulations to her and her man!

Fall Family Stuff In The Rouge

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014


It was fun to photograph some fall family shots… but this year, I didn’t have the time like in the past.  Plus the weather has played a part in the limited days I had.  It was great to photograph Max’s family.  She was such a sweet person at Fidelity and I missed her accent.  It was also great to photography Nina also and her family.

Gus Brown Charity Golf Classic | Giving Back |

Thursday, August 21st, 2014

I was happy to be a part of the 20th Annual Gus Brown Charity Golf Tourney.  I was helping photograph the golfers and I was on the 11th hole with NHL Player Jay McClemment who is a super nice guy.  So down to earth and this season he will playing in Carolina.


I also asked on FB for a volunteer to help me for the day and I was delighted to have Saroya Tinker with me who is going into Grade 11 and she is a hardworking hockey player herself.  She is going into Grade 11 and she has already received some verbal offers from Division 1 schools in the States.  She is hoping to be on the Sr. Woman’s Canadian Hockey Team.

I’m looking forward to supporting the tourney for years to come.

I got a selfie with the first woman golfer that came to my hole.  I found out after it was the Mayor of Whitby who is a sweet lady.  It was a nice Tourney and all the volunteers that make it all possible do a hell of a job.  Thank-you to my friend Carrie for inviting me.

Wedding Photo | Before + After | Post Processing | Love

Sunday, January 12th, 2014

Love this image.  I was driving to a reception venue and noticed a little farmer’s field with a little open gate.  I was in front of the limo so I singled and pulled over into the shoulder and asked the couple if I could have 5 minutes with them for a little shoot in the field.  One of the shots that I loved from the set was the one below.

In post-processing I wanted to add some layers to give it a different look.


I added some texture by to the image by adding some shots of swirling grass that you can see in between their heads and on the right of her head.  I took out the grass that overlapped her head since what woman would want swirly lines on her face.    I added some pictures of a sidewalk concrete on his shoulder and it’s tinted red.  I added some blur to take away from him so your eyes concentrate on her more.  I added a bit of a “vintage” feel through the image with the tones.

Here is what I was working with before the edits below:


For me… I’m always in love with this image for some reason.  Such a happy couple.  I do remember the grooms Mom didn’t like it since I cut him off on purpose.  The shot was more with her than him.
