ESSEX COUPLE READY FOR THE HUNT
Cathy & Chuck
Cathy called the studio one day to ask if I could go out to their property in Essex to take some lifestyle shots of them participating in their hobby of hunting with bow & arrow. I was quite surprised when I saw their equipment as I was expecting an old fashioned bow & arrow. Instead the weapon was huge & very high-tech, as you will see in the shot below. We wandered around their property as they talked about their hunting hobby & how much they enjoyed going out as a couple. The shot below was one of their favourite ones. It was an interesting day & a pleasure to get to meet these two experienced hunters.
Natalie’s hometown of Leamington was the setting for her wedding to football coach Jamie on Friday, August 26th. Following the church ceremony the whole wedding party headed over to Natalie’s uncle’s house to take a few pictures. The scenery was absolutely beautiful with landscaping & view of the water to die for. These two were so much fun!!! At the Ciociaro Club they participated in “Jumping the Broom” a custom brought down from Jamie’s side of the family. Congratulations Nicole & Jamie! I was just thrilled to be a part of your wedding day.
July 2 was the big wedding day celebration for Nathalie & Chad. These two are dog lovers just like me so we clicked right away. We started the day at their house, moving over to St. John Vianney, then to the Art Gallery & finally to the Ambassador Golf Club for the reception. What a happy couple!!! with a large number of family & friends coming from Europe to share their day. Congratulations on your very special day! May you share many years together of love, happiness & good fortune.
April 16th finally arrived for a determined Jennifer Darmon to walk down the aisle to her awaiting finance, Mike Belawetz. When the ceremony ended Mike whisked her off the floor to the joyful applause of everyone there.
Their first dance was just as touching!

Words hardly come close to explaining the emotions of the day! As you can see, Jenn is just beaming from ear to ear. And what makes this event even more memorable is the fact that Jenn worked extremely hard, for quite some time now, to take those time honored steps down the aisle.
It was a privilege and honor to be chosen to document their day, as it is with all my couples.
Please enjoy their story.

here’s a quote I found and wanted to share, ~ how fitting
Whatever setbacks you encounter, don’t give up on your hopes and dreams.
Imagination is stronger than knowledge…. dreams are more powerful than facts, and hope can triumph over experience.
April 16th finally arrived for a determined Jennifer Darmon to walk down the aisle to her awaiting finance, Mike Belawetz. Historical Mackenzie Hall in Olde Sandwich Town was packed with invited guests & media to watch this feisty woman overcome adversity & make her life-long dream of walking down the aisle on her wedding day come true. With twinkling eyes & a glowing smile she looked like an angel. The energy was electric as all eyes were on the beautiful bride. When the ceremony ended Mike whisked her off the floor to the joyful applause of everyone there. It was hard to keep a dry eye while witnessing this beautiful love story unfold knowing all they had both endured. May your marriage be blessed with much love, happiness & good fortune!!!!

Hiring a professional videographer to videotape your wedding ensures you’ll end up with a high-quality, well-organized recording. Before you decide on whom to hire, outline what you want as the end result and understand what it’ll take to get there.
What you ask a prospective videographer should not only determine that he offers the services you’re looking for, but also that he’s willing and eager to expertly record your wedding onto tape. When interviewing, don’t be afraid to ask for an interpretation of any answer you don’t understand. Let the answers to the following questions shape your list of potential hires:
- Are you available for our wedding date and time?
- Can we see a demo tape (of an actual wedding – not a stylized, produced demo tape)?
- Can you attend the rehearsal?
- How much control do we have in the editing process? Do you also provide an unedited version?
- Can we add our own music or thoughts to the taping?
- How long will the final tape be?
- Will you supply more than one copy of the final tape?
- Will you preview the site beforehand?
- What kind of setup do you need?
- When should we reserve your services?
- What packages do you offer?
- What prices do you charge? Do you require a deposit? How much is it and when is it due?
- When will the balance be due?
- Do you edit digitally so we can get a DVD? If not, will you in the near future?
