I’m a wedding photographer in Barrie, Ontario. Growing up in Northern Ontario I always had a creative itch… whether it was drawing, building, snapping photos or making homemade Rambo movies with my brother and our neighbour’s camcorder. I was always looking to create something fun and interesting.That still holds true today, not too long ago I decided to pick up a camera again and that boyish excitement came rushing back. Enough time had passed, it was time to follow my photography dream.
Home life – I’m married to my best friend Angie and father to my pride and joy Kindsey. Unknowingly they were the catalysts for my departure from “family get-together photography” into wedding photography… for our destination wedding in Punta Cana we hired two extremely talented photographers who opened a whole new world for me. I was amazed with the photos they created of my wife and daughter and soon after I had decided to specialize in weddings. All the fun and opportunities to be creative at weddings was just what the doctor ordered for my itch.
As well, I take great pride in my role as head coach for a local rep hockey club. Like photography, hockey has been a big part of my life since childhood. Giving back as a coach has been every bit as rewarding as my days as a player… even more so.
Today I enjoy taking images of couples in those mushy stages of their lives, but every now and then I still think back to those Rambo days and wish I could just once trigger an explosion while walking away! Now THAT’S an engagement shoot theme!
