Joe was the winner of the first ever Curt O’Neil Photo Shoot Contest that I put up in early March of this year. I’m sure I’ll have more contests in the future for other random things so follow the website and also join the Curt O’Neil Photographer Facebook group to be notified of special updates and contest announcements when they come.
Joe’s win allowed him and his fiance Krista to get some last minute engagement pictures done before their wedding which is coming up in a couple of weeks. We spent Monday morning roaming around Sault Ste. Marie’s downtown and waterfront area stopping at any random location we could find and ended the morning off at the Soo Canal. During one of our stops in the back of buildings on Queen St. Joe heard screaming coming from inside the door. I thought he was just acting nervous as it was still early in the shoot and thought nothing of it. About ten seconds later the door swung up and a “what do you think you are doing!?” comes bursting out. We all stood there in shock and then “oh I’m sorry I thought you were my daughter and her boyfriend making out in the doorway, it’s okay, you guys can keep going.” We had a good laugh, took a couple more shots and carried on. The resulting shot of that situation is the third one below.
Krista and Joe were great sports and loved to laugh which made for awesome pictures. Good luck at your wedding guys and thanks for the great Monday morning and lunch!
