pilar & alejo
March 10, 2012
Where do I start!?! The location, Puebla Mexico, was beautiful, the groom, Alejo, was handsome as ever, and the bride, Pilar… well… she was absolutely stunning!!
We couldn’t have asked for nicer weather and a more beautiful location. You could hear the birds in the trees singing away. There were so many great little spots to take images we could have spent a week there!! lol The whole place was like candy for the eyes!
We started off on the grounds of the reception hall, Bodegas del Molino. Alejo got ready at Hotel Hacienda del Molino which is on the same grounds as the hall. A little cobble stone road went behind the reception hall over to the hotel, and boy was it a bumpy ride!
The Church, Nuestra Senora del Carmen, was glorious. Passers by took a peak in to get a glimpse of the ceremony and to see Pilar. After the ceremony the couple was whisked away in an old Ford back to the reception hall for many hrs of celebration! Till about 4.30am to be exact!
The food was quite good, the cilantro soup was my favorite! I love anything with cilantro really. There was lots of dancing and singing (from the band, not me!!) The flowers got stuck in the chandelier 2 or 3 times before they had to move so a lucky someone could catch the bouquet, and they took the garter toss to a whole new level. Before Alejo was to throw the garter, all the single men formed what looked to be a mosh pit (devil ears, tail and all) and tossed him around like a rag doll! I know right! But not to worry, no one got hurt.
Pilar and Alejo make a magnificent couple and are deeply in love with one another! I venture to say from the moment they met…. And you can’t help but smile and share in their joy of life and each other as they are contagious.
I wish you many happy dances, life events and love throughout your many years together.

Sun, Sand & Lots of Fun
January Weekend Getaway
I had such a great time doing a weekend getaway with five girlfriends last weekend flying by my favourite airline West Jet!!. Six Bahama Mammas enjoying the beautiful weather, checking out the beauty of Grand Bahama Island, indulging in the food & activities at the Viva Wyndham Fortuna Resort where the staff was phenomenal. Our favourite drink was by far the Hurricane. I guess we missed the much talked about Wednesday Fish Fries which we’ll have to go back for one day.
Being a wedding photographer I thought the island would be perfect for a destination wedding which seems to be so popular today. Seems like I can’t help thinking about my work even when I’m away.
And even thought the time just flew by we had a great time & much deserved vacation. We also got to miss the weekend snowstorm here coming back just in time for the mild weather again…lucky us. 😀
Rebecca & Paul were married in the park on the beach in Jamaica surrounded by their family & friends on Sunday, July 31. Although it was a small & simple ceremony the energy was romantic & playful. We all had so much fun!!….& I was delighted to have lots of time to shoot at a number of locations. Capturing some of the island colour & atmosphere was an interesting change from the usual locations that are available in Windsor. And even though it was very hot Rebecca & Paul never once looked uncomfortable. Love was certainly in the air!! Congratulations to you both!!! And thank you for allowing me to document your beautiful day.
Next to my love for photography, I love travel so when Kevin contacted me to shoot his wedding in England, I was absolutely thrilled. He met the love of his life Betsy & had no second thoughts at leaving Canada to start a new life in England. They picked a beautiful spot outside London called the Kavali Royal Society International Center in Milton Keynes…..an absolutely breathtaking spot & a big change from what we have here in Windsor. These two were so much fun & so in love ….I truly enjoyed their company, the accommodation & the party. I’m so happy that you found each other & hope you share many, many years together. Love you both!!
Start interviewing photographers as soon as you’ve chosen your wedding date, ceremony and reception site. Your initial phone call should help you determine if the photographer deserves a personal visit. Get a general explanation of his services and prices and make sure he’s available on your wedding date, then schedule a meeting to nail down the specifics.
Be ready with the following list of questions when you interview your potential photographer:
- Can we see your portfolio?
- How long have you been photographing weddings?
- Do you work in color, black and white or both?
- What sort of lighting will you need? Do you use soft focus or diffused lighting?
- How long will you be able to stay at the wedding?
- Do you offer any packages?
- How far in advance should we reserve your services?
- What if a photograph doesn’t turn out?
- Do you require a deposit? How much is it and when is it due?
- When is the balance due?
- What if we need to postpone or cancel?
- How much do you charge for overtime?
A professional photographer will have all required licenses and business insurances, a clean, well-maintained studio, back-up equipment, and possibly a membership in a professional association like the Professional Photographers of America (PPOC) or Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI).
