Second Chances

Back in the summer when I was working in an office, a lovely lady was proposed to in our lobby and presented with flowers and an engagement ring. I was just getting into photography and she asked if I would photograph her lakeside wedding in May of this year. Back then, I was terrified at the thought of being responsible for such an important day and explained that I was inexperienced.

Pauline and Brian came to my home a couple months ago and chatted about the details of their outdoor ceremony which overlooks a gorgeous sparkling lake here in Brantford. I offered a casual engagement session for them to get comfortable with me and also to have a photo to display on their wedding day.

Friends of ours were so kind to lend us their camera which surely is an upgrade from ours so Michael came along to shoot some candids. We learned three things that morning. One, we are buying a new camera and lenses pronto. Two, we actually work really well together as a photography team. Three, you can find love at all ages and stages in life and there is always a second chance for everything.

Here are just a few photos for now. We took over 400 yesterday! The weather cooperated and although it was a chilly one at 7 am, our bride and groom to be were troopers! We headed back to their home to snap a few photos with their 4 rambunctious dogs.

Pauline and Brian, I wish you nothing but the best in your new journey together and thank you for trusting me to capture your special day.
