I finally had to make the big decision. For years I have offered proof albums through my studio which I really loved to make for clients. I loved them because of their simplicity, practicality and elegance. Wedding couples would get hundreds of images in one or two albums and you really would get a sense of the whole documentary feeling of the day. The wedding couple, the guests, the family, the details and all the behind the scenes too boot. Things the couple would never even know were happening. The big digital enlargement albums, which I also love while epic and cinematic in scale just don’t have room to carry the missed moments. But as times have changed and quality digital printing has become more affordable the small 4×6 wedding albums simply don’t look as exciting. So now I finally made the decision to retire the proof albums from my studio permanently. But before they go for ever I decided to look back at one of them which was shot with Kodak CN 400 color negative film. Here are some of the images from that wonderful day. The place holder from the film creates the sloppy border look which I think is delicious!

September 2nd my 1020 is Belleville/Picton Ontario. Settled about 100 years ago by Loyalists to the Crown this beautiful region of rural Canada is also the the date for a charming end of summer fall wedding. Its also been an opportunity to put my languishing blog to use and to start to show couples the little details of weddings you don’t often get to see in the the highlight reel galleries. So without further adieu I present John and Martine at the” Salon You” getting hair and nails done. Nothing like Starbucks and a manicure to wake you up in the morning!
I would say that being a guy I get to have a lot of fun hanging with the fellas pre wedding ceremony. This was especially true at Ian and Melanie’s wedding at Kiwi Lake Lodge on Vancouver island. Its about the fun, the dressing up and getting into what ever is going on, and this location was pretty spectacular so that didn’t hurt either!
