I had a fantastic time documenting Bianca and Kamil’s wedding, just north of Toronto. I had Mike Swiegot help me out and a few of the images below were clicked by him. Most of the images were captured on my Canon digital cameras and I did manage to shoot a couple of rolls of 35mm film on my Contax G2 camera. They were shot on Portra 400 film and scanned by The Find Lab. Here are some of my favourite photos from this day.
At the beginning of August I travelled with my wife and son to Mont Tremblant, Quebec. We took the VIA Train from Union Station in Toronto to Montreal. That was a comfortable 5-hr ride. In Montreal we took a bus to Mont Tremblant and that was about two and a half hours. Mont Tremblant is a ski resort and is also an amazing family place to visit during the summer. We stayed there for 5 nights and did a bunch of activities with the almost-4 year old. From luge to hiking to paddle boating to swimming in Lac Tremblant it was a great time. I really enjoyed the almost 15-min long panoramic gondola ride that took us high up to Mont Tremblant summit. The Mont Tremblant Village is very colourful and has a bit of an European feel to it with the cobblestone paths as well. Tons of restaurants and bars here as well that make it enjoyable to relax a bit after so many activities. My favourite was the Microbrasserie La Diable and my favourite beer was the Blizzard which was quite refreshing on a hot day. I took all these photos on my Contax G2 35mm film camera. I used Kodak Ektar 100, Kodak Portra 400, 800 and 1 roll of Cinestill BWxx black and white film. All scanned by The Find Lab.
I took engagement photos for Pam and Paul in a little historic town called Unionville which is a suburban village of Markham, just east of Toronto. This place was founded in 1794 and does have that ‘small-town’ charm. Lots of bars/restaurants to enjoy here as you walk down the main street. Had a lot of fun documenting this couple at this location. Here are some favourite photos from this session.
I had a fabulous time documenting Krystyna and Kyle’s wedding at the gorgeous Parkwood Estate venue in Oshawa. This place is beautiful and has both the Ceremony and Reception (outdoors under a tent) on the grounds, and its just 45min east of Toronto. I had previously taken this couples engagement photos at Edwards Gardens. Kyle got ready by first playing a 1st-person shooting video game with his groomsmen. Get some stress out, I suppose. This was followed by some beers and cigars. The ladies were far less complex as just a little wine was part of their getting-ready agenda. This venue is epic for photos and definitely a fantastic wedding location. Here are some of my favourite photos from the day. There are quite a few so pour yourself a scotch or perhaps some coffee or tea.
I shot most of these with my Canon 5D/5D2 digital combo and also used my 35mm film Contax G2 camera. I shot two rolls of Kodak Ektar 100 film and some of those photos are included below as well. Scanned by The Find Lab.
I had quite recently photographed Erynn and Saro’s engagement session so it was great to shoot their wedding so quickly afterwards. Sometimes I might wait a year or so before I shoot a wedding after an engagement shoot. An interesting side note for this wedding. One of Saro’s groomsmen is also a friend of mine and a wedding photographer himself. We had worked together a number of times, so in this case Mike was able to document some getting-ready action. The wedding was in Toronto and it was a pretty hot day. Thanks guys for having me photograph your wedding. Here are some favourites from the day.
