I love to shoot portrait photography! And the shot is always better when my subject is unaware that I am there. It's great fun and I am always honoured when asked to do it.

Becky & Josh-July 11, 2009

Becky and Josh were married in Virgil on July 11, 2009.

Becky is such a kind hearted girl. I have really enjoyed getting to know her and the rest of the family.

The flower girl was such a good little girl. So sweet.

A fantastic group of people to work with. A lot of fun!

We shot at Queenston Heights Park.

One of my favourites!

The reception was held right in Becky's parents backyard next to the vineyard.

Becky had smiles on all day long!

In the vineyard in Becky's parents front yard.

Thank you all for letting me be there.

Ryan & Becky-July 17, 2009

Ryan and Becky are an adorable couple! I enjoyed watching the two of them together...they make each other laugh.

Mother Nature really played with us on this day. We had cancelled the shoot and the last minute decided to risk it.

The gamble paid off! The rain cleared the beach in Port Dalhousie and we had it all to ourselves!

They were easy to photograph. I think they almost forgot I was there.

As the sun started to set...I got more excited! The light was gorgeous! They were good sports. Thanks for putting up with me :)

Did I mention that Ryan is a Kegger? Well...a former Kegger. Love those Keggers!

A beautiful sunset to end our session. I am looking forward to your wedding day in October.
Thank you Ryan and Becky.

Erin & Bob

Erin and I worked together long ago at MT Bellies in Welland Ontario.

What a treat is was to spend some time with her family in Port Dalhousie so many years later.

This little one has energy!

Both boys were so good.

This was his favorite part of the whole shoot...mine too!

Fun in the sand...and Erin says she doesn't like to get dirty!

Like I said.....lots of energy!

A very sweet family. I truly enjoyed every moment of our time together. Thank you so much Erin and Bob.

Allison & Laine-June 27, 2009

Allison and Laine were married at the Prince of Wales Hotel in the beautiful village of Niagara-on-the Lake.
The hand ceremony.

The famous gazebo in Queen's Royal Park. (Originally built for a Stephen King movie).
There were hundreds of people at this park when we shot...everyone out for a picnic on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. All were kind enough to vacate the gazebo so we could do portraits.

A beautiful glowing bride!

Her four nieces served as her flower girls. Sooooo cute!

One of my favorite shots from the entire day.

Thank you Allison and Laine for choosing Parkes Images Photography.
