Sandra and Jer are friends and for whatever reason it is odd to shoot your friends. I’ve known Jer for well over 10 years now and he can probably tell stories about me that only a few others that we still hang around know or were at. Sandra and Jer are probably the perfect six-degree of Curt O’Neil couple possible. They’re so good at it most connections back to me are probably two degrees. Sandra’s sister plays on my slo-pitch team and that sister’s husband is Bryan of “Bryan the 2nd shooter fame”. Sandra and Jer’s wedding next year is a great day for me as it is a day off – I get to attend their wedding as a guest and not the photographer so as a consolation they got me to shoot their engagement shoot for them.
We started the shoot off walking through the Soo Canal finding different spots to shoot. After there we went to the waterfront around the Roberta Bondar Pavilion and shot what was available. While walking the boardwalk I noticed a turtle down on some rocks, I’m not a turtle expert but it didn’t seem like a location for him to be so he’s featured in here as well. To finish off the shoot we had my favourite part of the day – lunch!
Thanks for the great day Sandra and Jer and can’t wait for your wedding next June!
