Family Photos -The Bissonette Family -Rosseau Ontario

Denise emailed me a few months ago and said her family wanted to do a photo shoot to celebrate her mom and dads 50th anniversary.  They all love the cottage and wanted to do a shoot on the water.  I drove up to Rosseau on one of the hottest days of this summer and as luck would have it we took a boat ride out to a little island near the cottage and got some really fun photos.

Christina Bissonette Lines - Rick, it was a pleasure to meet you and so happy we choose you as our family photographer. The pictures look great! Blueberry Island is one of our favourite spots on Lake Joe and you captured it so well with the lighting. Thank you for your patience with all us including Adam’s panicked appearance on his break from work at Rocky Crest. He surprisingly looks more relaxed than he was. Can’t wait to see all the photos.

Wedding -Nadia and Ryan -Barrie Ontario

Every wedding I get to attend and take photos for is special.  I get to know the couples, meet their families and feel apart of a very special day in their lives.  This wedding was extra special though. My brother in law Ryan was getting married to his perfect match Nadia.  Not only that, but my girls got to be flower girls and be a part of the wonderful day as well.  Thank you, Ryan and Nadia for letting me capture your special day.  This wedding will always be a favourite of mine and my families.  Also, a big thank you to Lew D’Souza for shooting with me and going the extra mile when I needed to be in some of the family photos.
