You can’t control the weather…and with that the cold November rain was upon us for Sheena + Ryan’s wedding day. Luckily we had a back up location and a small 30 minute window without rain to work with to get some amazing fun images…

Ryan’s proposal in his own words…”It was late December last year, and I had gotten the ring a month before and was waiting for the right time. Something in me said that today was the day despite having no real significance to either of us. So, I left work early, grabbed a bottle of wine, and set up a pick-nick in our basement (because it was raining), when she got home from work I asked her to help me move something and she came downstairs to find me on one knee.”

Congrats to you both, Sheena and Ryan. Thanks for letting me be a part of your big day. Here are some of my favourites from their wedding.

Cheers, Trevor

“It was Christmas morning and I was so nervous I couldn’t sleep. I got out of bed around 6 am and had my morning coffee. I knew Melissa was always excited for Christmas morning and would wake up early. So I sat drinking my coffee mustering up the courage to go upstairs. Finally I knew it was time when the sun started to come up. I ran upstairs and woke Melissa by saying that Santa had come. I put her gift in front of her and had her open it. Once she got down to the small ring box I took it from her and got down on one knee to pop the question. She was still wiping the sleep out of her eyes and at first thought I was joking. Once she realized what was happening she said yes!! She jumped out of bed and started freaking out, who to tell first and that she had to get ready. It was our best Christmas thus far.”

Congrats to you both, Melissa + Steve!Thanks for letting me be a part of your day. Here are some of my favourites from your wedding.

A brief story about the proposal…

“We went camping, he insisted we see the sunset that night so we were rushing after dinner. He told me to take a photo of him holding the sun and I told him it wasn’t working. He was like, Babe….so I looked away from the camera and he was on his knee.”

Here are some favourites from Stef and Ian’s outdoor wedding in Amherstburg, ON. The weather was perfect and we were all thankful as there really wasn’t a plan B if it wasn’t.

Congrats to you both, Stef and Ian. It was my pleasure and honour to be a part of your wedding. All the best to you both.

Cheers, Trevor

“We were in Costa Rica. He planned a romantic dinner on the beach. We had the whole beach to ourselves. James had a photographer staged. I was given a walkman while I thought he was in the bathroom, only to find his voice on the walkman…at the end of the recording he was behind me on one knee.”

Brittany + Matthew – Trevor Booth Photography, Windsor Ontario photographer

Friday, Sept 15th was a bitter sweet day for me in my professional photographer career. This might be the last time I get to photograph a wedding at the Canadian Club Heritage Brand Centre. The day was perfect, sun shinning, slight cool breeze off the water, two amazing people about to take the next journey of their lives together.

Brittany and Matthew’s wedding went off without a hitch. Here’s a brief story about the proposal…

Brittany – “I was planning a surprise birthday party with our close friends in the GTA….meanwhile he planned an engagement party with the same friends, they all knew expect for me. That day I was out with my girlfriend and she got me to get my nails done, that wasn’t hard. I then wanted to pick up a cake and drop it off at the restaurant I had planned the “birthday” surprise at, the girls there almost spilled the beans on what was actually happening.
We went back to my friends apartment that we were staying at. Us girls got ready and when I came out of the room, Joel asked for Matt’s camera, and Lindsay asked for Matt’s phone and asked how do I turn the video on, I was oblivious to why they wanted these things but whatever. Matt comes around the corner with this big scrapbook and said, this is for our 1 Year anniversary together. Que the melting my heart. At the end of the book there was a hole cut out with a box sat with the perfect ring. He got down on one knee and had memorized a short and sweet speech. I was trying to keep it together. But, I ugly cried. Later he told me that he had spent the last few months at my parents house on Monday nights while I was out playing volleyball to do this. My parents had no idea that it was how he was going to propose, just that it was a one year present of all that we did that year…”

Congrats to you both Brittany + Matthew. Thank you for letting me be a part of your special day.

Cheers, Trevor

I love small intimate weddings – they are always relaxed, simple yet so very personal to the couple who is getting married. Which is truly exactly how I would I love to do it if redone 16 years earlier! Here’s a brief story about John’s proposal…”We were having a lazy day in bed watching movies. He gave me a box I couldn’t see what it was so I asked him and he asked me to marry him. Was perfect for us because if he would of suggested we go out for dinner I would of known. I was definitely surprised.”

Congrats to you both, Jenny and John and your entire family.

Melissa + Joe – Trevor Booth Photography, Windsor Ontario photographer

Labour Day weekend is a special weekend in Canada. It represents a lot of change and new beginnings. For myself its usually my anniversary weekend as my wife and I got married on the 1st of Sept, which makes it even that more special for me. Photographing a couples wedding on this weekend brings back many memories of us preparing, getting ready, all the while seeing and celebrating with many distant friends and family. Yesterday I had the utmost pleasure to photograph a couple who I’ve know for a few years through mutual friends. Their joy, love and laughter has always been present and yesterday saw the accumulative of their two families joining together.

Congrats to you both, Melissa and Joe and your entire family, including Chucky.

Here are some favorites form Melissa and Joe’s wedding.

Cheers, Trevor

I love first looks; the anticipation, the excitement of it all. What I really love from shooting first looks is the true raw emotion that come from them.

Yesterday Brittany and Patrick had a first look. All the above happened and then some. Fun was had as we walked the waterfront and then to Jackson Park for the creative session before the ceremony at the Art Gallery of Windsor. It was a beautiful day, the sun shone down with a light breeze and their small intimate ceremony was perfect over looking the Detroit skyline.

Here are some of my favorites from yesterday. Congrats to you both, Brittany and Patrick. Thanks for letting me be a part of your special day.

Cheers, Trevor

Jessica + Troy – Inverness, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia – Trevor Booth Photography, Windsor Ontario photographer

“I’ve never seen a thunder storm that intense in this area in my life” said my mother-in-law, who grew up in the Inverness area of Cape Breton.

The night before Jessica and Troy’s wedding a storm system rolled through around 10pm followed by another (I think) around 2am. As luck would have it we woke up to sunshine, partly cloudy, and nice cool breeze. Prefect day for a wedding in a beautiful seaside town such a Inverness, Nova Scotia.

Here are some of the highlights from their east coast wedding. Enjoy.

Cheers, Trevor

 

Miranda + Brendan – Trevor Booth Photography, Windsor Ontario photographer

Miranda + Brendan – Trevor Booth Photography, Windsor Ontario photographer

“If ‘A’ was ‘yes’ and ‘B’ was ‘no’ I’d choose ‘A’”

This is the answer to the question Brendan asked Miranda way back on their first date….”Will you be my girlfriend?” From that moment 9 years ago, these high school sweethearts paths were joined and have been together since.

Here’s a brief story about the proposal from Miranda… “Brendan and I were taking a walk by the Peace Fountain at the River, which is pretty much something we do all the time. It was a beautiful breezy, somewhat cloudy day. I was taking pictures of the view. Brendan suggested I go take some closer pictures of the fountain. So as I moved closer and started taking pictures Brendan decided to update his status on Facebook to “I’m about to propose to Miranda lol”. I felt the vibration of my phone but thought nothing of the sort and when I turned around Brendan was down on one knee with the engagement ring held up in his hands. He was grinning and I was giggling and he asked me the most defining and biggest question I ever was asked in my entire life. He asked if I would be his wife. In typical awkward fashion I responded first by asking if he had asked my father and secondly, after he had said that he had, that of course I would marry him. It was simple and exactly the way I would have wanted it.”

Congrats to both of you, Miranda and Brendan.

Cheers, Trevor

Jackie + Wes, Playa Del Carmen, Mexico – Trevor Booth Photography, Windsor Ontario photographer

Its not often I shoot destination weddings, but Jackie and Wes came to me to photograph their destination wedding in the Playa Del Carmen region of Mexico at the Azul Fives resort, I couldn’t resist.

The location was beautiful, the food was excellent and the company was fun! Great combination for a wedding anywhere! The weather was great all week but it did happen to rain right after the ceremony for about 45 min. Luckily with some location scouting the day before we wasted no time when the skies cleared. Here are some of the best that I think will tell the story of Jackie and Wes’ wedding.

Congrats to you both and thank you for letting me be apart of your fabulous Mexico wedding.

Cheers, Trevor

Chelsea + Andrew – Trevor Booth Photography, Windsor Ontario photographer

Having an outdoor wedding can be a tad more stressful than most weddings in general. This is due to not being able to control the weather. But yesterday turned out to be perfect in every sense of the word! From the sun shining to a lite cool breeze. Chelsea and Andrew’s ceremony at the very historic Canadian Club Heritage Brand Centre (sadly soon to be closing) was just that – perfect!

So here’s a brief story about your first date…Andrew had golfed with Chelsea’s father John for years, so he was very nervous to pick Chelsea up for the first date. He took her to dinner at The Leaf, where his grandparent’s used to take him. After dinner they went back to Andrew’s house where his mother Nancy pulled out a picture from 1996 of Chelsea and Andrew sitting next to each other.”

Talk about fate!

Congrats to you both, Chelsea + Andrew. It was an absolute please being a part of your wedding.

Cheers, Trevor (second shooter – Stephanie)

The long weekend in May is typically my first wedding to be booked for any year. This past Victoria Day weekend was no exception. Though we didn’t have the best weather we managed to get some fabulous shots in Jackson Park and in Windsor’s graffiti alley (Malden Lane) in the heart of downtown Windsor.

Here are some favourites from Candice and Domenico’s wedding. Congrats to you both.

Cheers, Trevor
