Sarah + Tyler Wedding Day!

July 20th, 2015. Wedding Day.

When Sarah and Tyler got engaged a year and a half ago this wedding seemed far away…it’s a year and a half away! Then it was a year, then a few months, to a few weeks and now…one more sleep.

Sarah and Tyler’s wedding has been on my mind all week but driving around today preparing for tomorrow I have thought about it a lot. And my nose begins to twitch. That is my signal that tears are not far behind.

I met Sarah over 10 years ago. It’s a story worth sharing.

I was working for Labatt Breweries and had two little girls. One still in diapers. Sarah worked at a store close to my home that did photo printing, commercial printing, graphic design etc. I was what you would call a “regular”. Not yet aware of what my future had in store I would come in weekly with discs of pictures to print of my family and friends. I documented it all and I printed my brains out. Literally….hundreds and hundreds of photos. Sarah was there most of the time so we would talk and laugh and talk some more. Then Sarah left and went travelling with Tyler. Then she came back. Then she left again…this time to pursue her own business (which is now the hugely successful The Design Truth). We stayed in touch and we worked together on various volunteer initiatives within KW over the years. I have been Sarah’s client and still am. But most importantly she is my friend. She joked about me photographing her wedding years ago. I told her she had to hurry up as I was not getting any younger. Well, that day is here. It will be full of sunshine, laughter and beauty. Everything that she is.

Much love to you Sarah and Tyler.

I am honoured to be photographing your wedding.

Spring!

Hello to everyone!
What is this? A blog post? Goodness it’s been far too long. Long enough that I couldn’t remember the URL to log into the backend!
Half way through the year and I haven’t quite kept up with my promise to blog more OR to hit the gym.
I love dandelion season. Yes weeds excite me:)

Kids Photowalk

I am thrilled to announce an event that has been sitting at the back of my mind for the past year. Ever since I began teaching children and teen photography courses I have been thinking of all the ways in which photography truly helps to inspire, develop and speak to our children. It is a hobby that you can do for your entire lifetime. It is something that each of us can own in our individual ways. It does not exclude genders or look for a certain “type”. Photos are defined by the way WE see our world.

On May 23rd I will be hosting a photowalk at Waterloo Park for kids ages 7 to 16 along with their parents. I have an incredible team of assistants and volunteers gathered to help that morning to lead the groups. There will be photography activities organized and  time for a snack in the park at the end!
There is no monetary fee to this event. Simply bring a donation to our Waterloo Region food bank.

Please email oneforthewall@rogers.com to sign up and I hope to see you there!
