Canadian Pro Golfer Mike Weir

This past year we had the great pleasure of working with Canadian Pro Golfer Mike Weir. Mike and his team were holding a press conference to announce their new winery Mike Weir Wine, and partnership with Chateau-Des-Charmes winery. We enjoyed a great photo session with Mike at the Chateau, and also had the opportunity to visit the wine cellar and do some portraits there. Mike was great to work with, very professional, and he was even willing to climb on the barrels for a few of the shots.

It was a fantastic day with Mike and his team. Niagara Life Magazine recently did a cover story on Mike, and our photos were used throughout the publication. Here are a few shots of the magazine, as well as some from our shoot and during the press conference. You can also see our work with Mike on his website. Click here to check it out! Enjoy!

A few photos of the magazine.

Here is Mike with the wines by the fireplace at Chateau-des-Charmes.

I love the design on the bottles. Beautiful details.

After a quick trip downstairs, we set-up in the barrel room. For this shot, Mike is on one side of the room, and I am on the other, on top of another set of barrels. My assistant Rose was making sure I didn't accidentally fall, or worse, topple the entire stack of barrels! Thanks Rose!

The press conference was ready to go. These seats were reserved for members of Mike's family.

The new partnership of Mike Weir Wine and Chateau-Des-Charmes Wine is about to be announced.

Barry Katzman, President of Mike Weir Wine addressing the crowd. The place was packed, with even the gallery above on the second floor filled with people.

I took a quick look up, and there was Melodie O'Rourke (Director of Sales), hanging out with singer Matt Dusk!

Paul Bosc, of Chateau-des-Charmes, confirms the partnership and talks about the great potential of Mike Wier Wine and the Chateau.

I hope everyone enjoyed reading about this great day. Talk to you all soon!

Amanda & Kevin - Engagement

I met Amanda and Kevin by the Gazebo in Niagara-on-the-Lake. (and they actually knew the real history behind it! Does anyone else know?) They wanted to get some shots with their dog like Laura and Chris did, so we had their adorable Jack Russell terrier come out with Amanda's sister for his portion of the shoot. He was quite happy to be out at a park, and more then once gave me "doggie kisses", meaning "licking my face with a pink, slobbery tongue", which I actually didn't mind.

Amanda and Kevin walked around the park, enjoying each other's company, while every once and a while, I would hear nervous giggling and see the two of them smiling and laughing with each other.

Enjoy the photos everyone! It's going to be a great wedding!

Laura & Chris - Engagement

Chris had such an awesome time with Laura and Chris. They brought their adorable puppy named Jazz, which made it even more special. Of course, now Chris has been hearing about nothing but how much we need a boxer puppy of our own!

Here are some of our favourite shots from their engagement session. They really wanted a beach location for the shoot. I love the ones with the writing in the sand! So sweet.

The expressions on their faces are so great in this shot.

Doesn't this make you want to go out and get a puppy?

Thanks for a great day Laura and Chris! We can't wait for the wedding.
