It’s been a busy week! Oh, has it ever been a busy week. Perhaps my busiest week in life thus far?
Warning: Here comes a slew of disconnected paragraphs.
During the course of the week, three new amazing couples signed with me, and I’m so happy to get to photograph all of their unique weddings. The ideas range for Centre in the Square – to The Children’s Museum, or on top of Talisman Ski Hill (complete with gondola rides) – to the possibility of a wedding in Brazil.
Unique weddings need a unique photographer I suppose.
Tomorrow, I’m doing a trash the dress session with 2 brides. Hint: It involves paint. Lots of primary coloured paint.
Later in the week, it’s off to Las Vegas / L.A. – I’ll bring back pictures, lots of pictures.
I’m getting really excited for Anna & Matt, and Kristen & Josh’s weddings. They’re my two winter couples for December (Dec 20 – Cambridge, and 27 – Niagara Falls). I’m hoping for just a touch of snow, with warm temperatures in the afternoon.
Tonight is my first Saturday off in quite a while (that’s the life of a wedding photographer), and it just so happens to be one of my good friends birthdays. So, in celebration, 18 of us are taking a Hummer limo to Hamilton. I don’t think any specific plans have been made past that. Anyways, happy birthday Andres! (Aka Fes – stemming from a resemblance to Fes from That 70s Show..which just so happened to be his Halloween costume this year)
Oh, I should add a few photos here. This is a photography blog after all. Last weekend I took some photos of Hollie and her beautiful puppy, Jake.
Jake has more energy than any living being probably should. He calmed down for thirty seconds, and I snapped the above. Hollie is a wonderful hairdresser that works at Cowboys and Angels in Uptown Waterloo.
That’s all for today! Thank you for following my scattered thoughts. I’ll get the trash the dress photos up as soon as possible, because I know a ton of people are looking forward to them. My good friend Marshall Angus is coming out to video tape the experience, so you’ll get all the sights, sounds and ..well, I guess no smells, but you probably know what paint smells like anyways.
I called up my brand new 2009 assistant to ask if she wanted to join in the fun tomorrow, but apparently she’s in New York City! Julie and I went to NYC for the Easter Weekend this year, so I will use this an excuse to post a few photos from my travels there.

Leaving from LaGuardia x 2
January, I drove down with KW band named Gran Casino, to photograph their journey recording with Alex Newport (Mars Volta, At The Drive In, System of a Down) in Brooklyn. Over Easter, Julie and I nabbed the last room of an AMAZING hotel room sale, and drove down. 8 hour drive from Kitchener, and it only took my Corolla about a tank and a quarter of gas. Impressive.
Ok, that’s all. I swear. This has been my longest blog to date. My next post will likely come from Toronto’s Pearson Airport.
See you then!
