Sarah and Jake – Sault Ste Marie (Surprise) Wedding

There’s two words that describe Sarah and Jake’s wedding; for those of you who were there you’re probably thinking surprise ceremony but I’m talking about air guitar. Sarah is my first “sister” wedding of the year, I shot Rebecca’s wedding last July. Sarah and Jake planned for a small intimate wedding, they told all of the guests that they were having their ceremony during the day and everyone else was invited to the reception. Everyone accepted this as it was the exact same thing Rebecca and Brent did. Little did they know that we just used that time to freeze our asses off in the Sault’s winter hammering out their photos. Sarah and Jake ended up surprising everyone at the reception with having their small ceremony take place there. Both Sarah and Jake used their siblings as their wedding party which with a lot of foresight by their parents they had the same number of siblings on each side.

Because there was no ceremony and we were doing the photos before anything formal would happen Sarah and Jake opted for a first look. We had a simple set up where Sarah walked down the staircase in her parent’s house to Jake waiting at the bottom.

Now about that air guitar. It took it a little time to start up but as soon as it did I don’t think there was a time when it slowed down. It started few just a few key guitarists and grew into a mass heard of air guitar supremacy. I think the only time the onslaught of air guitar was slowed down was when the family dance routine broke out. That’s right folks; family dance routine.

Steph and Deryl – Sault Ste Marie Engagement Shoot

Steph and Deryl had a chilly engagement shoot that ended off my February of shooting. It was a few days after I got back from Vegas so the cold definitely hit me a little differently. We did the majority of the shoot at Mockingbird Hill Farm in the Sault’s north end. It’s a fun little area with different buildings on site and animals etc. The hard part for us was getting from point A to point B as there was no real paths. We finished off at Mockingbird inside one of the barns that had some various animals in it – Steph and Deryl fed the goats (those are goats right?) and hung out between the chickens who had free reign over the open areas of the barn.

Thanks for the fun afternoon guys.

Dumping your camera in the snow and leaving snow on the lens provides a good effect (that’s my excuse anyway)
