Another monthly 10 on 10 post and this time all my images are shot on film. Yes, FILM! Like that old school stuff you used back in the day..remember? I actually am really loving film lately and for sure you will be seeing more of it on my site!
Why I love Film :
- No, or little, post processing of images. They come straight out of the camera looking awesome.
- Film always seems to have this "look" that I love. Its simple, and raw. And totally reminds me of my childhood photos.
- Film makes my heart sing. It is like Christmas every time I send in a roll and have no idea how they will turn out! I have had some disappointments (like Christmas?!) but mostly have been happy with my scans. Even the not-so-good ones are exiting as you often forget what you shot and its like a little surprise!
- It makes you a better photographer. You HAVE to know your settings and how to manipulate light and understand the how and why of creating a great image. You only get one shot, not 100 like on digital!
- the creamy dreamy bokeh far exceeds anything created digitally
I can go on. Every time I shoot I discover another reason why I love Film.
I promise - film will be making an appearance in many a wedding or portrait shoot coming up! ♥
Once again there are a few more than ten images...but they are all my babes and I couldn't narrow it down!

Some wedding photographers will insist on you hiring a second photographer while other photographers I know prefer shooting alone. At the end of the day you are the one hiring the photographer and it will be up to you if you want one or two people photographing your wedding. To help make a decision, here are some factors to consider.
Jenna and Rory. They have a wonderful love story of two families who spent summers on the same lake. And since Jenna is a writer I'm going to let her tell you in her own words because they will sound much better than if I wrote them. Jenna and Rory got married on a mild fall day at a quaint restaurant called the Black Forest Inn, that they said "felt like the cottage", so it was the perfect place for these two cottagers to get married.
Kalli and Mitch and their fur-baby met me at the beach in Tiny Township, Ontario for a wintery beach session. It was early morning, we met just after sunrise and had the beach to ourselves. Something about winter and morning sessions that I really really love.
Working from home can be tough. Finding and setting boundaries, office hours, and sticking to them. What do you do to help you keep things organized?
We hung out one Sunday afternoon at Kensington Market in Toronto and just wandered the colourful streets, stopping to play a little hopscotch, taste-test some donuts for the wedding, and have some tea. These two love tea, donuts, games and books so it was the perfect day in Toronto.
You have decided to do engagement photos! Yay! Now what?
Personally I like to think of an engagement session as a little date. If you were planning a romantic date night, would you go to a random park and cuddle under random trees? Probably not. Choose a place that is meaningful to the two of you. If that park was where you got engaged or first met, sure let’s go there! Or maybe you love going to local patios and enjoying a cold beer – then go there! Take the dog for a walk, browse your favourite book store together, or better yet, just stay home and cuddle on the couch!
