I am one of the fortunate people on the planet to love what I do, and I take great pleasure in being a photographer. To the point that I love telling people when asked “What do you so Scott?” and replying “I am a photographer”. I am confident that I will ever grow tired of that phrase crossing my lips. Now it is great to get a bit of validation from my peers.
I submitted some images to be juried for a wedding photographers listing website. Arguably, there were some of the best wedding photographers in North America going to be submitting images, along with five of the best wedding photographers in North America jurying the contest. So I say very humbly, that one of my images was selected, making not only ecstatic, but incredibly honored. This has lit a fire for me, so you are going to be hearing more news from me in 2011.
Here is my listing on ‘Fearless photographers’, along with the listings of the other photographers, all incredible. Photographers that I am proud to be associated with.
Here is the winning shot taken at one of my favorite venues Langdon Hall.
As a wedding photographer, you receive inquiries all the time. But when DiAnne contacted me about photographing their intimate wedding I was more than intrigued. DiAnne and Janio were going to me married in the very intimate setting of their apartment. With only 2 other people in attendance, DiAnne wasn’t sure if I would even do a wedding that small, but I was more than up for the challenge (and it was surprisingly challenging especially to be discrete). DiAnne and Janio had it right, they knew that great wedding photography was important, but even more important given that there was only four people in attendance. And they wanted all of their family to be able to experience their wedding, and I was so happy to hear their excitement to share the images with them. I was more than happy to be there, and photograph this incredibly unique event. DiAnne and Janio’s love is obvious – and incredibly fun to photograph.
It needs to be mentioned how much of a trooper DiAnne was. I must have asked her every 2 minutes if she was alright with the cold, and she continued to stand in the cold with out flinching – she never lost her resolve. It was a pleasure to work with the both of you – thank you so much
The great cake from La Patisserrie
The beautifully simple flowers from Lillie’s White
The celebratory bottle of Verve Cliquot
I sincerely wished that I remembered the name of this flower. But as DiAnne told me (after presenting the images), it is her favorite flower since living in Hawaii as a child. And as it turns out, this is the national flower of Nicaragua – Janio’s native country. I found that incredibly romantic.
Martti from Kettle Creek Weddings did a great job as always.
Janio was so excited to open that bottle.
One of my favorite portraits of the season, knowing how much it means to DiAnne.
Kristen and Bryce were married in Mississauga Ontario this past September and had their wedding reception at the Old Mill in Toronto. (Here is the link to their teaser wedding photograph)
Here are a few of my favorites from the “getting ready” portion of the day. There will be more to come in future posts. Enjoy, and comments are always welcomed
Caroline and Lui were my 10.10.10 couple and simply put? these guys had a riot dancing at their wedding which was held at the Paramount in Woodbridge Ontario. They danced, their guests danced, and not just a few people, but everyone. The danced between courses of their meal, and for hours after the party actually got started.
Caroline and Lui, are film buffs, so therefore they wedding reception was based on classic films, everything from the place cards, to the ‘table numbers’. It was a pleasure to photograph. Here are a few of my favorites.
The placemarkers – easily the most original of the season
During the first dance I loved that this little guy got into it
Love the little girls reactions in this one
This little guy didn’t quit all night
Dancing to “Sweet Caroline” (kinda reminded me of the Who’s down in Whoville)
A little air guitar never hurt anyone
This shot easily makes the top 10 for me this season – vintage film inspired
I love seeing a messy table at the end of the night – to me it means people had a good time – and that is certainly true of this wedding
