Jen + Mike.  Truly two of the loveliest, most charming couples I’ve ever had the pleasure to shoot.  These two were married on November 7, 2009 at Heintzman House in Thornhill, ON.  Anyone who knows Ontario knows that November generally isn’t the prettiest or warmest of months, and I was decidedly nervous about Jen’s idea to shoot in the nearby forest.  Not only did she want her and Mike’s portrait session to be outdoors, but the family and bridal party formals as well.  Eep!  To up the ante, she and Mike rented a beautiful fainting couch and borrowed a Persian rug to decorate the scene.  The portraits were happening outdoors come rain, snow, sleet, or hail.  I was terrified.

The fateful day arrived.  I awoke on November 7 to temperatures well above seasonal and a beautiful sunny sky.  The day was perfect.  There couldn’t have been a better wedding to finish my ’09 season.

I hope you enjoy their images as much as I enjoyed creating them.  A special thank you to John Edgar for shooting along side me, and to Niki.  Stay tuned for Niki’s Super 8 film coverage of this lovely day.

Ok, let’s see some photos!
