The Wedding of Michelle & Eric

Hello folks! This is it! My first big gig :) 

I never expected to shoot my first wedding as a 3rd year university student. I also never expected to be hired by my former (awesome) high school teacher, Michelle. This was definitely a once in a blue moon opportunity, and I had an amazing experience!

I would like to say a big THANK YOU to Anthony Renditya for being my assistant and 2nd photographer. Thank you for letting me boss you around for a day and thank you for doing such a great job. Wouldn't be able to do this without you! 

Last but certainly not least, thank you God for blessing me with this 
opportunity and being with me every second of this day. 

Here's some information about the wedding:

Date: October 20, 2012
Reception: Mississauga Grand 

Equipment used (between Tony and I combined): 
Canon EOS 40D (x2), Canon EOS 7D, 580EX II Speedlite (x2), 24-70 f/2.8L, 35mm f/1,4L, 70-200 f/4L, 70-200 f/2.8L, 100mm f/2.8L, and a plethora of batteries and memory cards. 

I hope you enjoy the pictures :)


By the end of the night, Tony and I were pretty much ready to hit the hay. It was a lot of hard work. The pictures took months of editing. But in the end it was very worth it. 

Will I shoot more weddings? I am not sure. 
For now, I'll continue to embrace student life and what it offers. Once I graduate, who knows? I will surely think and pray if another opportunity comes knocking :) 

Thank you Michelle and Eric for taking a stab in the dark and having faith in me to shoot your wedding. It was an honour and a blessing--I wish you two a very joyous and blessed life ahead. 

Cheers to the future!
