Guelph Wedding Photography | Joanne & Sye

Let me introduce you to two beautiful people with two beautiful children: Joanne and Sye.  Joanne contacted me this summer about having some formal portraits done on their wedding day.  She planned a simple ceremony with a small group of friends and family followed by a small reception.  Nothing extravagant.  Simply perfect.

Having talked to Joanne the day before, I could tell by her voice how excited she was to have some photos taken of her and Sye and of their family.  I’m  always so happy and honoured to be chosen to capture such special, intimate moments between a couple.

I hope you enjoy these memories!!

Here’s to 5 lucky couples!

Hello lovely blog readers, there’s so much to say about what’s been going on in my life… but that will have to wait for another post because today I’m announcing an early Christmas gift for 5 lucky brides.  I have a few dates left for summer 2010 weddings and thought what a better way to fill up the calendar than to give 15% off of any of my packages for the first 5 brides who want it.

That’s it.  Really… it’s that easy.  If you want to be one of my wedding couples next summer, I’m sending you a little early Christmas gift by giving you 15% off (but only to the first 5 to email me).  Promotion deadline is December 1st. I have only a few select dates still available so contact me soon!

That’s pretty exciting, I’d say.   So if you were sitting on the fence deciding when or if to book… jump right off and send me an email! 🙂

And now….. for some photos.  I had the privilege of doing a very last minute wedding ceremony for a lovely couple this past weekend.  When Afzia from Style & Elegance Wedding and Event Coordination emailed me on Monday desperate for help… I was glad to be available.  I had never been part of a traditional muslim ceremony before, and needless to say I learned a lot about Qayum & CJ’s family and culture in just a few short hours.  Even after the ceremony was over, Qayum’s parents insisted that Justin & I stayed for some (very spicy) indian food 🙂 After every bite, I was looked at for approval “out of 1-10, how would you say you liked it?” asked his father! HA!

Thanks Afzia for the oppurtunity!  Here’s a few of my favourites of the couple:

Before the bride joins the groom at the front of the room, she sits at the back with some of the women.  Then the groom brings her up the aisle.

I still can’t believe these were taken in the basement of a house.  We managed to get a really dramatic look with the little light we had!
