Abott-Tate Family Portraits

This photo session was done on one of the few last nice days of the fall. A wonderful, loving family who were really good at getting pictures done. Even the dogs were well behaved too! Except for the one time they tried to escape and chase some hikers...

Enjoy the photos and the slideshow. Thanks for a great session!

We almost had a leaf fight going!

I've got to say, that is an excellent use of a fallen piece of wood.

Got to get mom and dad into the action too!

Very nice!

Whoops! We lost someone!

He just couldn't resist getting one more silly one!

Annie & Mike - Engagement Slideshow and Pictures!

Annie and Mike are fantastic and fun! A great engagement session even though the ground was a little wet at times, Mike kept Annie entertained and laughing. Enjoy the images and slideshow!

This is right at the start. We were figuring out what we should do, and before I knew it, Mike was coming up with his own ideas and doing them with or without the rest of us! It was great! You can see that Annie doesn't quite know what he is doing and is very entertained by him.

So many laughs! Hahahahaha!

A quiet moment.


Ahhh....the fountain. Mike's favourite part of the day. Here they are doing statues.

Here Annie is in hysterics. I wonder what Mike is doing now?

Woah! He is attempting a one-footed stance while balancing on wet cement. Wait, I think he is attempting something else...lets take a closer look...

No way! He's going for the "catch a droplet on the tongue"! Incredible! And what a look of fierce determination in his eyes!

Thanks for a great session! See you at the wedding!

Melanie & Zijad - Engagement

Melanie and Zijad were an absolute pleasure to photograph. We had such a great time and the weather was wonderful! They are very much in love and it shows!

Enjoy the images and watch for their Engagement Slideshow too!

I don't think they even know I'm here right now.

Of course, you have to throw leaves and run into them!

Venturing into the forest we found some great locations, and the sun was on our side!

There's always time for portraits! Mom's love these!

Isn't Melanie beautiful?

Ahhh....good ole Blue Steel! That look never fails!


Aren't they just too adorable....?

A nice moment to end with...

Can't wait for the wedding! It's going to be amazing!

Oh, and the slideshow is going to be coming soon too! Come back to see it soon!

Becky & Joel - Engagement Images

Becky and Joel decided to have their Engagement Photos done at a park they knew about, but I had never been to. It is called Battlefield Park and it is located in Stoney Creek. It is now a historic site with some great buildings (even a watch tower that was used in the battle of Stoney Creek) - which make for awesome photo locations!

These two came full of energy, ready to have fun, and even brought their little dog for some pictures. Let's have a look at the photos!

Are you kidding me?!?! Look at that cute little face! Adorable!

There is the tower. Even though it is very tall, the surrounding trees hide it well. I've driven by the area before and never noticed it. When I was leaving I took another look from the road. You can just see the top level of the tower from the road. A true hidden gem!

This tree lined area was a great spot. Look at the colours in the leaves!

Beautiful light, great people, enjoying being together. I love it!

We found this cool historic house. I love the columns and doorway. Of course, Becky and Joel complete the image perfectly.

Very sweet....awww

Ahhhh! They jumped!

This picture makes me smile.

"Catch me Becky!"

This is probably my favourite picture of the day. It reminds me of days gone by, romantic walks, the scent of leaves in the air, a slight warm's a happy moment, preserved forever in the image.

Thanks for the great session guys! The wedding is going to be amazing! I can't wait!
