Every so often, I'm rewarded with the honour of being asked by friends if I'll photograph their wedding. When I started shooting weddings nearly 5 years ago, it was my brother Justin and his now wife Rebecca that first took a leap of faith in my abilities to shoot their wedding ( in exchange for a steak dinner ) and since then I've had the pleasure of working with numerous friends to capture their big day.
One of the things I try and do with all of my clients is spending some quality time with them to get to know them, how they interact with each other, and hopefully making them more at ease with me. It's a privilege to get to know so many people and so many quirky details about each unique relationship, and my hope is to always bring out those quirks in their images when I shoot for them. Roman & Tiffany have been friends of mine and Mandy's for several years now, and I've also had the privilege of doing music with them at my old church ( For those that don't know, I've been drumming for about ten years ). They are both warm, genuine, wonderful people who love to laugh and are both extremely talented musicians. One of the reasons I'm so excited to share this session is because Ro & Tiff both said before our session that they "don't photograph well" and often don't like pictures of themselves; As I look through these images taken at Beacon Hill Park and the Pier in Sidney ( a stones throw from where I married Mandy 2 years ago this August ), I can't help but feel that we have disspelled this unphotogenic-ness as nothing but a myth of the past, I'm so happy with how their session turned out and can't wait for their big day this June!

Amazing how different the light becomes when you simply turn around. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful evening
Two out of focus shots in one blog post! And I love them both!
