Last week I had a riot photographing some brothers. I approach kids portraits a bit differently than most (or in this case teen portraits). I really feel that they can be far more creative than just “stand there, look at the camera and smile’. Here are a few of my favourites. And here is the link of the shoot that I did with their younger sisters portraits last spring.
In Danielle‘s words …
When we first read your email, the task seemed pretty simple, until we started looking through the pictures. How could we ever pick just one image? After a lot of thought we were able to narrow it down to our 2 favourite images.
My grandfather (the one on the right) was not able to join us the day of our wedding. This image makes it feel like he was still involved in our special day. Although he was not there in person, I know he was thinking of us that day. Such a great way to have Grandpa captured in our wedding album.
(Side note- I remember siting on your couch and viewing our images for the first time just after the wedding and this image brought me to tears. I had no idea you had even captured the picture of my grandfather on my mom and dad fridge while we were getting ready. Seeing my Grandpa in our wedding photos was a wonderful surprise- Thank You!)
We love this picture because it shows our family and friends in the truest light. Candid moments often make the best pictures, and this picture shows just that. This was a completely spontaneous photo and you captured the moment perfectly. This day was one of the most fun days we’ve ever had, and we were able to spend it with the people that mean the most to us. Amazing family, wonderful friends and perfect weather!
Thank you for capturing our special day in a way that we will never forget. Whenever we look back at our images it reminds us of what a wonderful day it was right down to the small details. Your work is truly amazing!
Sounds like it was a tough decision but this is Caylyn and Claudio’s favorite from their wedding at Nith Ridge Estates in Ayr.
“At the end of our hectic day, it was so nice to take a moment and calm down as the fireworks were lit. It was also special to us to have them at our wedding, since there were fireworks at our first date (over 7 years prior), as well as our proposal (not to mention, the photo itself is stunning seeing the bright fireworks captured behind us!).”
Here is another one of their wedding photographs
In Kim’s words…
It was really difficult to choose! There are so many unique images for that day, so many wonderful moments captured, to pick one doesn’t feel like it does justice to your incredible work or your amazing talent.
Here is the one that we chose. We love so many elements of this photo: the location (downtown Victoria Park – one of our favourite places to go for walks with our dog), the autumn colours of the trees (what a perfect fall scene), and the urban activity (skateboarders/drum) in the background. It’s such a random mix of things (stuff you’d never think to combine), but it just works because it’s life truly happening and that’s what makes it so beautiful. We also love the video recorder (who we didn’t even realize was there) giving us the “thumbs up” – I remember you commenting on how friendly random people we encountered in the city center were that afternoon (that’s part of what I love about London) and this photo really helps illustrate that – and now when we look back he will forever be a small part of our special day.
Thank you so much for your outstanding professionalism, easy-going attitude and care. I would recommend your services to anyone looking for more than just pictures – when you choose Scott and re:action photography, you’re investing in an experience and valuable memories that will last a lifetime.
(Thanks so much Kim and Sean, it was a pleasure, and I look forward to photographing you again you again this spring)
