“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.”

Congrats to you both, Stephanie and James! Here are some of my favourites from your wedding.

Cheers, Trevor

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 beautfil 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

“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

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.

A great start to my 2017 wedding season kicked off with photographing Brittney and James at the historic John R Homestead on the beautiful shores of Lake Erie. The outdoor ceremony was blessed with absolute beautiful weather for mid May with the sun shining and a lite cool breeze.

Both Brittney’s and James’ anticipation and excitement was felt from all guests who gathered to witness the exchanging of vows from two people who are very much in love with each other. Having met the modern way; online, didn’t take away from the love felt for each other. In todays cynical world it was refreshing to see two people who simply adored one another.

I’d like to share some images from Mr. and Mrs Magri’s wedding – enjoy and a big congrats to you both!

2016 has been a fabulous year for me professionally and personally. I want to thank and congratulate all my clients this past year for trusting in me and my vision.

The artistic freedom that my clients give me and have grown to love over the years brings pure satisfaction to me. I will only strive to become better and better for all my 2017 clients and beyond.

Here’s to the new year and what it my bring to everyone. Cheers and enjoy some of my favourites from this past year of 2016.

It was a great day for mid November, the weather couldn’t have been better to be honest. One day before the temp was in the high teens but it didn’t rain when we needed a bit of sun and Deb and Luis’s prayers were answered.

Here’s a how Deb remembers the proposal; “We went to Mexico just after Christmas 2015.  He arranged for a solo table on the beach for us for a five course dinner.  The ring was hidden in small center piece.  Just after dessert he started to play with it and I warned him that the sand was going to spill….. inside was the box with the ring.  I don’t actually remember him asking because I was distracted by the ring.  And when he wondered what my answer was, I actually asked him to ask me again.”

Congrats to you both Debra and Luis.

Cheers, Trevor

“Well… once upon a time my sister-in-law posted some pictures on Facebook of myself (Leo) and my niece Carmela .  Annalisa saw those pictures and clicked like to them.  So my sister-in-law Toula mentioned it to my brother and he was like tell Leo about it! So she did and I decided to add her as a friend.  So I started chatting with her a little and asked out to coffee.  She said no, so I waited a bit and asked again.  She said no.  Being very persistent, I asked one last time and she said YES!  And the rest is history!!”

“I had the night all planned out….
I had asked her to check her schedule and make sure she had the Saturday (August 8/2015)off.  Then I made reservations at Tuscana Restaurant.  I had spoken to Jordan the manager there and explained to him that I was going to propose to my girlfriend and told him how I wanted the night to go.  Now normally when we go out to dinner we never make it to desert because were to full, so that night I made sure to tell her to save room for desert because I wanted to get something.  After we ordered drinks , I got up to use the bathroom and gave Jordon the Ring.  We had dinner and everything was going great, drinks were flowing….desert was ordered.  Jordon brought out the desert himself with the ring on the plate, I slipped out of my chair, dropped to one knee and proposed.  The whole restaurant cheered for us !! it was awesome!!”
