Please exit stage left.......

And that my friends is the whole kit and caboodle... well sort of. Actually I don't have any more time to update my blog. I gotta pack. I mean I'm off for three months, and I still don't have my clothes and camera gear organized. One thing is for sure, I'll be updating my blog from overseas... as often as possible.


Bree & Sun - Wedding
Mango Lounge, Toronto

Kay and I shot this wedding on Saturday. It was my last one of the year, as later on today both of us are flying out on a 3 month trip that will take us to Poland, England and India. Thank you to everyone who hired me this year for photography. If you're interested in future work, please feel free to send me an email, and I promise I'll get back to you as soon as possible... mind you I'll be relying on internet cafes until January 3rd.

As for this wedding, it's needless to say, that it was as much fun as their engagement shoot. We had a blast. Super nice couple. Super nice family. Super nice friends.

Bree & Sun - ESHOOT

Before everyone gets up in arms, including militant feminists, I would like to state for the record that these two really really love each other (no seriously Bree and Sun are awesome! Their wedding was even awesomer...I know that's not a word), and that the theme for the engagement shoot was 1950's style chauvinistic advertising photography. So, with that being said, please direct all hate mail to someone who may care, because if you don't get the joke... my sincere condolences for your sense of non-humor.

p.s. extra special biggups to George from Garage One Media for helping out on the shoot.
