Getting dirty on a TTD

Why not get a little dirty during the trash the dress session?  You might also get your clothes a little dirty too ;). Disclaimer – no clothes were harmed in the making of this photo

Enjoying a sunset is always better with the person you love

Cenote Session in Mexico

We go way back with these two.  From the engagement session on their canoe in Kilcona park to Jamaica for their wedding.  Jamaica is part of their DNA.  I told them about Mexico and was able to convince them that it too was great and the culture was amazing.  They said they would allow us to show them around and “give up one trip to Jamaica” to see what I kept telling them about.  The pressure was on, and I […]

One day closer

Yes it is now one day away of my wife and my wedding anniversary! I am so happy that we found each other through the sea. As we have been to so many weddings, I sometimes like to reflect on our own wedding. Destination wedding in the heat of Mexico was dreamy. The blue water and the medicinal effect the humid air has on our northern skin.

One week down south with our friends and families. Everyone of them traveling for our wedding and we couldn’t be more thankful. From Nova Scotia to New Zealand our friends all came.

Here Kathy and I got to share this big day with them but mostly with each other.

Happy almost 2 years babe!

Trash the dress is not a literal thing

So many of my clients hear “trash the dress” and get scared.  They think the name is literal.  Most of the time the dress will actually come out cleaner than the day of the wedding.  Fresh water and sand will not damage the dress.  There is still hesitation though.  For those who have that “priceless” dress or shoes and would never imagine putting them at risk, you can always get away with a good substitute.

Upcoming anniversary

It just so happens that my anniversary with my best friend is just around the corner! I couldn’t be happier to celebrate our second anniversary together! Love you long time babe!  

Bride and Groom inside a church at Talum Mexico

Talum Mexico

It’s days like this that I remember the warm days of living in Mexico.  There is this amazing little church at one of the resorts in Talum Mexico.  To take advantage of the super fast sunsets, you have to be quick in Mexico.  Usually the sunsets in about 5 minutes.  As a photographer you have to be fast.  Also having a photographer who knows what to do it just as important.   We have photographed quite a few weddings at […]

Silvie & Lincoln at Playa del Carmen Mexico

It’s not every day I get to photograph a sunrise session and trash the dress session in the humidity of the Mayan Riviera! It also just happened to be my biggest photography influence. We started out just north of town where the land just jets out enough to see the sun rise spectacularly rise above the Caribbean Ocean. Silvie looked flawless (as usual) as we started to photograph along the beach. The waves came and went as the sun slowly […]

Silvie & Lincoln in the Mayan Riveria

It is not everyday that a photographer gets to photograph his teacher.  During Kathy and mine destination wedding trip this past February we got to spend some time with our photographer and actually photograph him and his recent fiance!  The pressure was on but I was able to get into my stride and capture some of the special moments.  I have to admit that Lincoln had a big part in shaping my photography and who I am today.  I also […]
