Jill & Zach Engagement

Jill, Zach and I had a really hard time trying to schedule their engagement shoot. Between their extremely busy lives and the rain filled Saskatoon summer we found ourselves rescheduling the shoot over and over again. It looked like a Sunday in early September was going to finally work for the three of us.

What I hadn’t anticipated when booking that date was that I would be in the middle of installing hardwood floor in our entire house. I remember that particular Sunday looking like it was going to be an awesome day for the shoot so I knew that we wouldn’t be rescheduling again. The shoot was for 5:30 so my father-in-law, my wife who was 32 weeks pregnant, and I raced through laying the nursery floor.

And am I ever glad that we didn’t have to reschedule because the light that day was awesome. Jill and Zach live on an acreage about 20 minutes outside of Saskatoon and that seemed like a perfect place for the shoot. Their place was a photographer’s dream, and with them being the “outdoorsy type”, it was fitting to use as a setting.

In January they will be tying the knot in Maui, Hawaii with about 30 guests making the trip with them. Unfortunately I won’t be going along to shoot the wedding, but I am very grateful that I had the chance to work with this fabulous couple to capture their engagement photos.

Here are some of my favourite photos from our time together. Be sure to also check out the high definition slideshow to see even more images of the two of them.

Almost There

This is a very personal post for me since the subject is my wife. Michelle and I are expecting our first child at any moment since we are now five days past our due date. Being a photographer you would think that I would have taken more photos of my wife in the last nine months, but we always found ourselves too busy to go out for a shoot. But once we hit the thirty-nine week mark nearly two weeks ago we thought we better make the time.

We didn’t go to an extravagant location, and didn’t spend a lot of time shooting, but the two of us enjoyed our time together to get some photographs of this very special time in our lives.

I hope you enjoy the short slideshow of some of my favourite photos from the shoot.

Rene and Clint wanted to get some photos taken of the themselves and their two dogs before the snow arrived in Saskatoon. Here’s a teaser photo from a fall evening we spent together. I just love how they are looking at each other. Stay tuned for a full post shortly.

Nicole & Jayesh Hindu Engagement Ceremony

At the end of August Nicole and Jayesh celebrated their engagement at the Hindu temple in Saskatoon. This traditional ceremony brought both of their families together as a first step in joining these two in marriage. And like almost any Indian tradition it was filled with bright colours and lots of food.

Once we wrapped up some family photos, the three of us took off to focus on some images of just the two of them. Here are some of my favourite photographs from that day. Be sure to watch the high definition slideshow at the end to see even more of Nicole and Jayesh.

I’ll be shooting their wedding on New Years Eve next year, and can only imagine the party that’s going to be.
