I met May and Ken through a referral from Bryan and Victoria. She sent me an inquiry for a date I was already booked for, but I really wanted to meet her to give her a few tips on choosing the right photographer.

We sat down in a Starbucks where we could barely scrape together three seats to sit down and talk. I told her what she should to pay attention for when looking for a photographer. There are so many options out there when looking for a photog that it’s one of the hardest things to decide on.

Feeling comfortable is one of the most importation things when looking for a photographer

May really LOVED my style of photography and wanted to work together to create some amazing images – eventhough i was booked for her date. So we set a date.

So the day before our shoot, Ken got an eye infection and so we had to reschedule. Fortunately, the date was the day they were getting their papers signed (ie. getting married). It was small and very personal. They did not want to shove 20 hours of plans into a 14 hour day, so they decided to keep the wedding ceremony small. Which I kind of like as the ceremony was only with very close family and friends.

After their ceremony, we went up to the rooftop to shoot some images on a VERY windy day, then hiked to Centre Island to shoot more during sunset!

What a great day, and I’m so happy for you May and Ken! Have fun during your reception tomorrow!
