Family Shoot – The Peltoniemi and Cabauatan Families -Barrie Ontario

Winter is long gone and summer time weddings and family shoots are kicking into high gear.  Getting together with clients I have worked with before is always my favourite.  I love to catch up with everyone and see what is new with them.  I had the pleasure of shooting Shelley and Glenns wedding a few years ago and from that got to work with Shelleys brother Darren and his wife Jennifer.  For this shoot we had both families plus Shelley and Darren’s parents Margie and Carl.

Engagement Shoot -Candice and Paul – Barrie Ontario

I booked the wedding for Candice and Paul when it was still warm and sunny outside in 2015.  At the time when we booked Candice and Paul thought it would be fun to have a fall engagement shoot.  When it came time to do the shoot scheduling and weather started to make it hard to book the actual date.  It was decided we would do a winter shoot and have some photos of Candice and Paul skating and playing some hockey.  Winter never came but we decided to push forward and make the best of it.  With no snow, we decided a park and someplace by the water would be nice backdrops.   When Candice and Paul got to Barrie they had some good news, we would get our hockey shoot after all.  Paul pulled some strings and we got to shoot in the best hockey rink in town.  The shoot was a really fun and we had a good time getting know each other more, looking forward to the big day next year.

Engagement Shoot -Katrina and Jason -Orillia Ontario

Meet Katrina and Jason!  When I asked them what type of engagement shoot they would like to do, they told me the love to spend time together outdoors.  We took advantage of probably the last nice warm day of fall and had a great time together.
