Light streams through the windows and creates halos around the congregation.  The Bride and Groom join hands.  Behind them , light passes through the stained glass making the jewel tones glow and the figures pulsate with life.  It casts a warm glow on the couple.  Light from another direction sculpts the profile of the Bride’s face and illuminates the profound emotion the congregation is witnessing.

Springtime in Algonquin Park

The thought of going somewhere warm this spring had briefly crossed our minds- but the weather here has been so beautiful we thought we must take advantage of it!  As we arrived at our campsite on Mew Lake we were greeted by a duck at the waterfront  having a blast splashing around.  The little chipmunk that lived in a tree on the campsite became our little pet for the week.  New growth was beginning everywhere:  in the hardwood forests the red trilliums had a chance to shine before the canopy of maple leaves stamps out the light that allows their growth. In the marshy areas the spring peepers chimed out their chorus.  We couldn’t see these thumbnail sized amphibians anywhere but their music was shrill on our ears. Later in the week we had an encounter with a moose- beautiful, huge, but elusive- he didn’t like having his picture taken.  Moose in the spring are not too elusive- they come to the ditches by the highway to eat the salt rich plants in the wet areas from winter road salting.  On our way home, we had a second chance with a moose- this one however, didn’t mind having her picture taken at all!

Please support your parks and wildlife.

Underpasses

Here is a small collection of  underpass photos I captured enroute to Algonquin Park last week as we headed up north to find the elusive  Canada  moose.

Kelly & Adam's wedding at the Liberty Grand

leave a comment »


.

We first met Kelly and Adam last year at Tanya and Justin’s wedding in Mexico. Kelly has a very tight knit core group of friends and (lucky for us) almost all of them were getting married in the near future. Gen and Greg’s wedding followed in September, and now this past weekend it was Kelly and Adam’s turn to shine. The day started off at the Soho Metropolitan Hotel in Toronto, where Kelly and Adam were both getting ready and where they would first see each other (that day). We then headed to Brookfield Place (formerly known as BCE place) for some dramatic shots in the six story galleria. The Steam Whistle Brewery was a great place to relax and have a beer (or two). Thanks to the staff there who were very accommodating. Next we did a few shots at Graffiti Alley with with the group, but it was way to cold outside. We ended at the elegant Liberty Grand for the wedding and reception.

Kelly and Adam, thanks for being such great subject matter, you rocked it!

Jennifer & Sal's Wedding, Reception at Archeo – Distillery District

.

.

We kicked off the 2010 wedding season with two amazing people: Jennifer and Sal.  We were eager to get back into things and get the creativity going and were thinking of all the potential a winter wedding has.  It was a beautifully bright and bitterly cold day (it felt like at least -20).  Jennifer and Sal said their vows in St. Paul’s United Church in Bowmanville, then after some (very) brief photos outside, we headed off to Toronto for the reception at Archeo Trattoria in the Distillery District.  The Distillery District is the historic site of the Gooderham and Worts distillery, built in 1832 and operated continuously for more than 150 years.  The cobblestone streets and Victorian Industrial architecture provided the perfect backdrop for a photo session. Jennifer and Sal looked swell- she in an Art Deco inspired gown and fur wrap and he in his three piece and fedora.  They were so natural in front of the  camera – a couple of live wires!  Then back to Archeo to warm up with some giggle water (20’s slang is fun!)  After a superb meal and really hilarious speeches everyone got a wiggle on the dance floor and partied into the wee hours.
