Carolyn and Bill: Azilda Engagement Session


Now Carolyn and Bill are a couple that have been together for a long time (according to Carolyn)  ;)
and where finally going to make it official.  I know Carolyn because we play Roller Derby for the same league, Greater Sudbury Roller Derby. Now you might think that means I know Bill as well but you would be wrong.  Husbands and partners quickly become Derby Widows. We spend so much time and energy on Roller Derby that they get stuck at home watching kids and pets and wondering what we are up to.  So when I finally got to meet Bill it was Easy to see why Carolyn was marrying him. He was handsome and had a great sense of humour AND he put up with Carolyn's other love Roller Derby.
    I took them to White Water Park in Azilda to do their Engagement Photographs.  It was dusk and I hadn’t been thinking about bugs, I was obsessed with the light at this time of day, Oh my how its my favourite time of day to take portraits.  The light is warm and romantic, see how I go off on a tangent. Lol   Ok so we go trekking up the hill in the park and the bugs are swarming everywhere. They are all over us and flying all over. It was so bad that No one wanted to talk, I could barely get Carolyn and Bill to smile because of the fear of getting bugs in their teeth.   Now when I head out at that time of day I always remind my couples to wear one of those Raid clip on Bug repellant thingies. It was brutal to say the least, However their photographs where worth it.  Here are a few of them.

Doris and Rudy: The First Sudbury Wedding of the Season.

This couple was a dream to work with!  Their friends and family where Amazing. They where dressed to the nines and ready to celebrate.   Doris was so easy going, Whenever something didnt go exactly to plan she would just say “ Well, thats interesting” and she would go on about what ever she was doing.
She knew that the day would go on just fine if everything didnt go just right to plan or schedule.
Rudy was equally as easy going his groomsman where all about goofing off and making everyone laugh. You could tell what a tight knit group of  Friends they where.  You could tell by the way Rudy and Doris looked at each other that they where totally in the moment and loving every minute of it.
Here are some of the Photographs taken at Bell Park and the United Steel Workers Hall in Sudbury.
I love being a Photographer in Sudbury, mainly because of couples like this.
