Kingston Family Wedding Celebration

Rideau Acres Outdoor Wedding Ceremony with Sunset

Ashley and Ryan’s Wedding Day was absolutely wonderful. I have to admit I had my fingers crossed when I saw that there was a possibility of rain as I knew how much it meant to them to have their ceremony outdoors at Rideau Acres. Well I guess the “finger crossing” worked as it drizzled slightly before the ceremony and then completely cleared up for the rest of the day.

Bride and Grooms daughter special flower girl in Cowboy boots

Their daughter Kaylee, who is only three, was so adorable all day long. Walking hand in hand with Amanda down the aisle and peeking out from behind Mom and Dad to smile at the guests. She ever so carefully poured her sand during the Sand Ceremony and even was able to sign the marriage license Kaylee was such a trooper all day long and full of smiles.

Community Support for Memories

Ashley was stunning in her Oleg Cassini ball gown and I am sure it took Ryan’s breathe away as she walked down the aisle. They were is up for anything and even hiked to the highest ridge in the park as this is one of Ashley’s favorite spots at Rideau Acres Campground overlooking the lake.

Twilight Wedding Photography

Ashley and Ryan requested night photos so during dinner we left while the buffet was starting, the sun was setting and made it back before all the guests were served. We were all amazed at the incredible sight before us on the beach. Campers at Rideau Acres Campground were also enjoying this spectacular Thanksgiving weekend sunset. One thing about campers is they are always so friendly and offer help to others. Well that was certainly true on Saturday as they held the soft box and a light while John went into the water to light Ashley and Ryan from behind. Viola….a community affair! Many thanks for offering your assistance campers. A perfect celebration to a spectacular day.

Ashley, Ryan and Kaylee we wish you a lifetime of love, laughter and new exciting adventures. xxx

Hot September Day with Cool Purple Night Wedding Photographs


A colourful Vision for Wedding Photography

What a day! To say that Aundrea and Jon’s Wedding Day was unique would be a bit of an understatement I think. Aundrea loves colour, creative ideas and details. This was at the forefront of her vision for their Wedding Day.

I spent the afternoon with Aundrea the Tuesday prior to their Wedding Day scoping out locations for their day. She loves photography and wanted to discover some settings that worked for us for the location segment and show off some colourful night photos. We had a blast scoping out back roads and chatted about new ideas for her day.

The week before I had been googling new ideas/props for our night photography as has become part of my “style” as a wedding photographer. Aundrea mentioned that she had purchased smoke bombs and I was in shock. Yes the very aspect I had been researching. What were the chances! We were the first Aundrea for a Wedding Day….just sayin’

Crazy Colourful Smoke Bombs Unforgetable Memories and magic

Their Wedding Day was a scorcher (41C with the humidity)….black tuxedos for the guys but seriously I never heard them complain…at all. The entire Wedding party was incredible! Aundrea and Jon opted for an extended Wedding Day for night photography, extra travel and some amazing stunts by Jon

The ceremony was such a beautiful location on the lake and the reception was held at Aundrea’s parents.

Dreamy Tent Wedding

They erected a massive covered tent complete with up lights and beautiful details. Stunning floral from Kelly’s Flowers in Perth, for the bouquets, boutonnieres and throughout the reception venue.

Big shout out to Cassidy from Peaking Zebra Productions as it was once again great to work with you.

Your Wedding Day was beautiful Aundrea and Jon and we are truly blessed to capture the love of your day and to get to know such a kind amazing couple. Many thanks for your trust and being so down to earth.

We wish you joy and ” happy toes” in the future…<that’s another story> Love John and Ruth.xxoo

Colourful Smoke Bomb Wedding Celebration – Perth ON | Aundrea+Jon

Perfect September Wedding in Perth ON

Who could have imagined that the best weather of the summer would be in September this year? Sunny skies, warm slight breeze pronounced the perfect beginning for Katie, Jamie and sweet Hendrix’s Wedding Day. Only a slight tweak in their day as Hendrix was not feeling well although after an afternoon nap and Tylenol his smiles reappeared for Mom and Dad with lots of waves to the guests

Katie and Jamie wanted to read their vows to each other, minus the first look, just the touch of each other’s hand. The corner of the White House on the grounds of the Best Western Plus Perth Parkside Inn & Spa created the perfect backdrop for this intimate moment before their ceremony.

Relaxed and comfortable wedding

The groomsmen were hilarious and since Fiddlehead’s is just across the street, why not go for just one cold brew. The Bridesmaids and Groomsmen were awesome! Lots of laughter, jokes and the perfect complement for a relaxed and fun day for Katie and Jamie. What type of photo do you get when it is time to go to the bar after photos are complete….lol….I loved this one guys

Katie you were stunningly beautiful! Jamie you are such a gentleman and by the way…. the trim looked great

Stunning Twilight Wedding Photography at Best Western Plus Perth

Jamie and Katie had a request on their Wedding Day for a night photo (taken at twilight) of the new dry stack stone bridge in Perth. We had just enough time to do another setup at the Best Western Plus Perth before guests arrived for the reception.

Creating night photography unique to each Bride/Grooms Wedding Day has been an aspect which now defines my style. Before your Wedding Day I scope out areas, usually outside your venue, that will create these distinctive art pieces for your portfolio.
I photograph the area and take notes of ideas. The night before your Wedding I discuss the logistics with John and my overall view for your night photography. The light set up is pre-done for you after the 1st dances of the night are complete. You are then able to sneak away for approx. 10-15 minutes while your guests enjoy your reception.
I thought this location at Best Western Plus Perth Parkside Inn & Spa would be perfect due to some ambient light in the scrubs, the winding stone staircase and a pop of colour to light the tree in the background. Of course, the real stars of the show are Katie and Jamie…they’re stunning

A beautiful day and a fabulous couple to capture. Thank you Katie and Jamie…we are so honoured to photograph this moment in time for all 3 of you.

Love to all! John and Ruth

Luxurious Wedding Banquet Celebration overlooking the
St. Lawrence in Kingston Ontario


Canadian Snowbirds air show for wedding guests

Yes it has been a rainy unpredictable summer but the sun shone brightly for Lindsey and Casey’s Wedding Day at the Vimy Officers Mess in Kingston ON.

The ceremony was under two beautiful maple trees with the roar of planes celebrating overhead. All of Kingston was enjoying the “Snowbirds” at the waterfront or at Fort Henry to marvel at their precise maneuvers in the sky. Coincidentally, Casey’s works on these planes in Alberta and it was as if they were cheering him on overhead. The ceremony was paused several times as they performed their magic but what a perfect addition to their vows. Since the Kingston streets were traffic filled for the Snowbirds we decided to stay at Vimy’s Military base for all aspects of their day. How perfect!

Amazing Outdoor Wedding in Kingston

Casey throughout the day would randomly kiss Lindsay’s forehead and so plain to see that he adores her. He is a true gentleman. I have never met a more joyful man as he has a permanent caring smile…all the time! And seriously why would he not around Lindsay she was stunningly beautiful and you can tell that he is definitely her soulmate.

Love and Laughter

We wish you a lifetime of love and laughter… exciting adventures…..and a bond that grows with each passing day.

Many thanks from John and I for inviting us into your lives and memories for your fabulous Wedding Day. Our Love to you both!
