new things…

NO, unfortunately our baby Eli has not come out to meet his makers.  But the due date is Saturday… so I’m still keeping the hope alive.  And for all of you “friends” out there trying to sabotage my due date with hopes for a later birth… stop it! :)

What I DID want to share with you today is a photo I took of my new twitter page design.  This may or may not be a glance into our new branding!!

If you’re a tweep and love to tweet, you should follow ME here and JUSTIN here.

Justin & his watermelon…

Ohhhhh Justin.  He’s pretty much a great, compassionate, and passionate guy all-around.  But there’s something you need to know about him.  He has a dark side when it comes to his favorite foods.  He does NOT like to share.  Most people would think that I’d be the non-sharer-of-foods but it’s actually untrue, Justin is the culprit.  Over the years, I’ve learned a few things:

1. to divide up “treats” that we buy while grocery shopping or my mouth will never see its existence.  (2 for you, 2 for me… I KNOW, it’s pathetic!)

2. if he’s given chocolates or cookies at work for “the two of us”… I probably won’t find out about it until that kind person asks me “how’d you like my cookies?”.  Then I usually have to lie to cover up his cookie-eating-eagerness.  (you’ll be glad to know that his coworkers now require him to bring some home for me… it’s a big joke!)

3. don’t mess around with HIS watermelon. If there’s any fruit that he loves more than grapes, it’s watermelon.  We bought one the other day and he ate at least 3 quarters of it.  Last night I told him that I wanted to eat the last bit so this morning before leaving for work, he kindly reminded me “Mel I hope you will eat that watermelon today…” NO PRESSURE!!!!! ha!

In his defense… I don’t always share.  I like to, most of the time, but when it comes to my “chocolate eruption” or “chocolate explosion” cake obsession, I absolutely hate sharing!  And for your information you can find this deliciousness at William’s or Boston Pizza :)

IN OTHER NEWS, our “little” watermelon is still growing, even at 39 weeks!  Yikes… how big is this boy gonna be?!  Here’s a photo of me taken by Justin a few weeks ago!

If you’ve been wondering where all the photos are, well… I’ve been taking a break until our boy is born.  Then you can expect to see a lot more of him until I start my weddings in July :)  Also, we’ve been busy with our new branding… SOON our new BLOGSITE will be up and running.  We can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on!

Elora Gorge Engagement Photography | Jenna & Rich

I love hearing couples’ unique love stories… and Jenna & Rich’s story is one that I love!  They spent many years seeing each other at conferences and conventions, not knowing that one day *BAM* they would see the “light” and fall in love.  Now, they’re engaged and will be married in September (YAY!)  Unlike, mine and Justin’s story… sometime it just takes awhile for us to come around, but when we do, it’s such a beautiful thing (I’ll have to share our story sometime).

Last weekend we drove to the Elora Gorge and snapped a few photos of the two of them.  The Gorge is such a beautiful place to take photos… And it was even more delightful to work with a ‘really bright-minutes-before-a-thunderstorm’ sky!  But there was also lots of pressure to get all the shots we wanted before the big rain… luckily we did!  Enjoy!

Rich probably made us laugh the entire time and Jenna’s smile was outstanding… There’s no doubt that we’re going to have a blast photographing you guys in a few short months!!! Looking forward to it!

Kettleby Wedding Photography: Victoria & Brett

Happy New Year! (Better late than never I suppose :) )  My holidays were extra long this year with having my parents visiting for a few weeks.  But today the holidays end with their departure back to the very wintery homeland of Timmins!  And now it’s also back to work for me with blogging and post processing!

What a better way to start the year than with a beautiful winter wedding!  Justin and I headed up to Kettleby to photograph Victoria & Brett – a lovely couple!  We connected with these two through the gorgeous Renee (Brett’s soon-to-be sister in law) who I’ve known for several years now.  As Victoria shared the vision of her wedding, I was excited to use some of the christmasy decor in their shots!  But of course with very cold weather, my eyes eagerly searched for great light since we stayed indoors the entire day…

As I went through their photos today, I couldn’t help but smile at both Brett & Victoria’s beautiful smiles.  I know you’ll enjoy these as much as I did!

such a funny moment… something “borrowed”!!

Victoria’s niece being a very big help :)

While I was with the ladies, Justin was taking some great shots of Brett and his guys

One of my favourites!

love love love the sparkling lights behind them!!

Cheers to the two of you… beautiful people with great hearts!

Milton Wedding Photography | Ainsley & Matt

Let’s just say that the Greystone Golf Club is a beautiful place to get married on a gorgeous fall day.  Ainsley & Matt actually did extensive research on the perfect time of year for their location.  And what a perfect day it was :)

You all know I’m a big fan of SHARP, COLOURFUL photos… and this wedding had a whole of that. The light, colours, landscape, and details made my job really fun that day!  I hope all the best for Ainsley & Matt and in their marriage!  Having spent the day with them and their family… there’s no doubt that they have the support from everyone around them and that’s a great way to start their journey together.

Here’s Ainsley & her sisters looking stunning!

They decided to have a first look before the ceremony so we could get all of the photos we needed.  I love the photos from this series… LOVE!
