It was a quiet and tranquil Sunday afternoon when I met Molly and Juan at their cottage on Lake Ontario – right down the road from where I grew up. Photographing a wedding so close to home gave me an instant connection to this couple, but the setting and romance between these two elevated this wedding to be one of my favorites to date. We began the day by wandering around their property and the surrounding fields, taking portraits before heading a few doors down to Molly’s parents cottage (where Molly grew up) for their wedding ceremony and dinner. There were 8 witnesses there, 2 dogs, 2 cats and it was perfection. The ceremony site rested on the bank above a particularly placid Lake Ontario and was surrounded with the Christmas trees from Molly’s childhood (her father planted them all!). After the ceremony their families gathered together for an intimate catered dinner and I was on my way.
As much as I love photographing all of the big and glamorous weddings, this is what it’s all about – commitment, family union, love. The good stuff (:
