find your bliss

Oh hey there! Yes, it's been a while. I've been shooting! And shooting, and shooting... and shooting. I'm working towards the finale of my University education, the Guelph-Humber Senior Class Portfolio show, eXposure on March 20th. I've got nothing where I want it to be in terms of readiness, quality of work, and simply general proud-ness of what I'm going to be displaying... so continue to shoot I shall.

Oh, and while I was doing that, I also photographed my very first wedding! You've gotta start somewhere, and I was blessed to work with the most incredibly kind (and hilarious!) couple and their wonderful family. Photos will surely follow, and you'll get a keen sense of the comediennes I spent the day with.

Part of the wedding package I worked with for the couple was an on-site green screen, in which guests chose the background to be swapped in behind them, and the images were printed with a "Thank you for celebrating our special day!" overlay and put immediately into frames to take home. My fantastic assistant Josh Mahoney was the captain of that ship, and we decided to do a run-through before the wedding. Of course, two crazy photographers in one room, and the madness ensued. We both got some sweet new display photos out of the ordeal though!

Part of the extensive line of shooting I've been doing is for classwork as well, and a good friend helped out with a shoot one night in the wonderful location of my upstairs bathroom. Adam was a little confused as to why two girls ran upstairs and spent an hour in the bathroom together laughing... but we'll leave that one up to his imagination.

I have one month left of my final year of University. My final due date for all assignments is March 30th, and my convocation is June 18th. The big two year anniversary (I know right, only two years?!) for Adam and I comes around May 26th, so this girl is getting as far away from here as possible for at least a week (toes in the sand perhaps? Adam can come too.) I have a mountain to climb before I get there (and have I mentioned I've been going to the gym? These legs can climb!), but the view from the top will be well worth it.
