Ben’s First Birthday – Gander, NL

I love the challenge of making a good photograph from what is already happening around me. (It’s what I do when I cover local events like the Terra Nova Tornadoes Christmas Ice Show or the Smallwood Days Loggers Festival and it’s often what I do when I photograph my own family.) So when the poor weather stopped me from taking portraits of Ben and his family like we had planned this fall, I was more than happy to join them at their home for Ben’s first birthday! Here are a few of the photos I took at the party!

I got great feedback on the photos from Ben’s family. I hope the pictures are some that they can enjoy for a long time! I think they are.

Central Newfoundland Wedding – Paula & Shane

This August, I had the pleasure of photographing Paula and Shane on their wedding day. I started the morning photographing the couple getting ready with their friends and family in two homes next door to each other in Benton. I was pleased to run into a couple familiar faces among the groomsmen (small community!)  But it wasn’t long before I got to meet everyone and I felt a connection with the people I had just met that day. I was genuinely excited to see Paula in her dress for the first time and to capture the reaction of everyone else as they saw her. We moved to the Salvation Army Church in Gander for the ceremony, and Cobb’s Pond before meeting up in Glovertown. We took a few photos around Glovertown including some at the beautiful new town centre. Finally, we moved to the Glovertown Lion’s Club where I photographed the speeches, the shoe game, the cake cutting, and the first dances. It was a beautiful day that won’t soon be forgotten!

Gander Wedding – Evelina & Patrick

Earlier this month, I had the privilege of assisting Gander photographer Andrew Harvey as he captured the wedding of Evelina and Patrick. I focused on the ladies getting ready (with Andrew’s wife Melissa giving me a hand) while he photographed the guys. It was a true family affair that made for a beautiful and emotional day. The ceremony was at the Salvantion Army Church in Gander, reception was at the Gander Curing Club. Since Patrick is a fireman, we took some photos at the fire hall with the trucks. The bride’s broach bouquet was handmade by Evelina, a wedding planner herself. It will certainly be a day to be cherished for the families. I hope my photos can help them to remember the occasion!

Gander and Glovertown – Grade Twelve Portraits

I think grad photos are awesome. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime event, so you absolutely want to record it with photos. When it comes to capturing what grade 12 is really like, however, photos from a more typical day may be your best bet. Photos at your favorite places in your normal clothes show a little more about you can create some beautiful and personal images. Just check out these shots of Olivia, Ally, and Isabella!
