I was just looking at the wrong shots. Right there, in front of me the whole time were images that are fresh, spontaneous, relaxed, classic. All the adjectives I desire for my work.
I have the best job in the world. I get to spend time with my daughter and pets at home. I can choose to sit outside while answering emails, or take that walk and explore our neighbourhood. And when I work (especially for weddings), it’s intense work-mode with the bonus of getting to know and photograph fabulous clients.
It was a gloriously warm spring day. It was a perfect afternoon to shoot Gail and Michael’s engagement shots in downtown Toronto’s Front Street area.
As a photographer I get the best seats in the house for some of the most important moments in people’s lives. It is a privileged point of view which I get to share, preserved in images that later become part of the collective memory of the events.
