I was fortunate to shoot three beautiful and very distinct weddings last month. Each had it’s own unique flair. There are some great advantages to shooting in the winter and as a photographer. For example, I love taking advantage of the early sunsets and the opportunity to take dusk photos. The wedding above was at the beautiful Cambridge Mill and this shot was taken in the park right across the street. A perfect place to shoot and I love the beautiful downtown skyline of Cambridge, Ontario.
Also, if you’re lucky, you might even get some snowflakes right outside the Erindale Presbyterian Church.
Of course this has been a very mild winter and so far I have been able to go outside for photos for all my winter weddings. Even considering the mild temperatures for December, warm shawls are recommended. We never spend too long a period outside, typically five minutes then back inside to warm-up.
These photos were taken in the Queen’s Head British Pub in Oakville. The bride really wanted to get some photos near a fireplace and the pub was nice enough to let us shoot there. A great place to get warm. Might as well have a pint while you’re doing it.
All the guests at this wedding were taught how to make gingerbread houses. Really fun activity and the houses turned out amazing. Those are solar panels on top of that house.
