One of the things that we pride ourselves in the ability to make our couples feel comfortable in front of the camera. It’s not every day that you get all dolled up and are asked to “interact” and be “romantic” (public display of affection) with your significant other, all while having this giant camera and lens pointed at you. Having gone through it myself, I can relate to the slight uncomfortable feeling. That is exactly why it is our goal to be-friend all of our couples, build a lasting relationship with them, and make them feel at ease in front of our camera. That way, when it comes time to our portrait sessions, we are like “a friend with a camera”. I think that that is the biggest reason that we have so many of our couples ask us to be part of their lives with their maternity portraits, newborn portraits, and family portraits.
For Mel and Kris, this all came very easy. Mel is Al’s cousin, and as such, I have been hanging out with her and Kris now ever since they started dating!
Mel and Kris are tying the knot next year, at John Michael’s, and we’re really looking forward to the wedding! Al is actually in the wedding party, so I guess I’ll be flying solo!
I am honoured to be a part of their special day, and I am happy to be the photographer to be documenting this special time in their lives.
Here are a few of our favourite images. Enjoy!]]>
