Mel & Leo

Talk about your dream couple!  This was not a real wedding, it was actually shot for a project that I had for school.  I just wanted to show them off because they photograph so well!

Remnants of a fire.

Disclaimer: This was my families property at the time these images were taken (the house has since been sold). As much as I love urban exploration, buildings such as these that have been severely damaged/compromised by fire can be dangerous.  Since I know that this building was structurally sound, I took the opportunity to grab some final images before the renovations commence.

Many years ago, on my nephews second birthday, I got the call that no one wants to get.  My family home, a semi detached duplex, had caught fire on the one side.  The side that my sister shared with her family, my parents lived on the other side.  Their dryer had caught on fire and it had almost wiped out my entire family.  The damage and devastation was mind blowing and after the initial shock wore off and the clean up commenced there wasn’t much money left over for renovations (well over 100K just to get the basics). So there is sat, all these years untouched save for some basic safety measures to make it safe to walk through.  It eventually became a storage space of sorts and after my father passed away and the house sold soon after, it was emptied out.  So when I went to Cambridge Ontario for my fathers memorial service, I did what any self respecting photographer would do; I took lots and lots of pictures!

I’m still in Ontario for the moment.  This is one of my favorite places to come whenever i’m in town. My dad used to take me here all the time when I was a child.
I miss him.

Cambridge, Ontario

Cambridge Ontario (Preston) is where I grew up and I have always had a particular affinity for the downtown core (known as Galt to some people).  Knowing that after my mom sold the house I wouldn’t be spending much time in the area anymore, I made it a point to head down to some of my favorite places so I could capture a few images of some of my favorite buildings.  Cambridge has a lot of old architectural charm that’s just gorgeous!

This session was extra special for a number of reasons.  Jenn is a gorgeous firecracker and a dream to photograph!  Coming into this session, she was nervous as most people are.  The best moment for me was having her tell me that I had made her feel so good that she had wished that she had recorded her session so she could remember all the things I said.  Jenn is one of those lovelies that is beautiful inside and out.  She rocked her session like no one’s business!
