The “Groom”

The “Dress”

The crinoline stood up on it’s own.  Lace up the back,  pull tight,  stand tall.  The architecture of the item in question was lyrical.  Layer upon layer.  Momentos in between.  Tartan garter, pink shoes.  Beautiful light, Beautiful Bride.  Bustle, hustle… your carriage awaits.

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.

Amy & Rob

The weather forecast was calling for rain on Amy and Rob’s big day the week leading up to the wedding.  Then a few days before, it changed to Sunday.  Wedding Day score #1. We had scouted some ubercool outdoor locations beforehand and were very pleased that we would still be able to use them.  One of the locations we scouted- a picturesque country property- turned out to belong to a relative of Rob’s.  Score #2.  We had tonnes of fun at the next location- a veritable concrete legoland, where everyone got to let loose and play… so many great shots from here. Score#3. The fun continued over at Whistle Bear Golf  Club- we got to golf cart it over to one last location- an old shack in the woods- for some photos alone with the couple before they were married.  The forest floor was riddled with trilliums and wildflowers- so beautiful and delicate- we really had to take care where to step!

The reception provided many more favorite moments- If you can tell how much a bride and groom are loved by how enthusiastically people sing for them,  well then,  Amy and Rob are very well loved. Everyone put a lot of soul into their performances but Amy’s nieces really won the crowd over with their adorable performances. Then there was the most massive group hug we have ever seen! The night was capped off by a spectacular sparkler display.

Amy and Rob- Thanks for having so much fun!
