you could be a bum but a well fitted suit will make any man look like a million bucks. I never knew shooting weddings would improve my fashion sense but now i can see the difference between a well fitted vs. a badly fitted suit. Recently i picked up the Style Manual by GQ. I looooove men in suits so i drooled over every page. It was really interesting for me to read the difference in collar styles and also about the different elements that make a suit a suit! If you’re a man and you wanna learn more about suits then pick an issue this month!
wedding with claudia hung:
after a couple weeks of shooting my own weddings i was beginning to miss shooting with my friend claudia so i was really happy to reunite with claud and chris. The forecast for the day was cloudy with rain so I wasn’t surprised when it started raining. Actually it started POURING right before the ceremony but it all turned out well. It was a total outdoor wedding but it turned out fabulously. They had cute apples set outside with peoples names and table numbers on it…they were all dewy after the rain. I ran the photobooth at this wedding so i didn’t get as much of an opportunity to shoot, twas fun interacting with some people at the booth though, especially the scottish gentleman :P
Overall it was an adorable wedding with lots of awesome details to make it extra special.
a little peek at some of the questions i get…not to say that ALL my meetings are like this but reveals that a lot of people don’t understand what it takes to run a wedding photography business.
hilarious! Please…take it easy on us photographers. A wedding is a big day! one of the most important day of your life! however there are people around you trying to make that day special for you so it wouldn’t hurt to be nice ….
i paid a visit to my friend sally’s loft where she runs her jewelery business in downtown toronto. she has an awesome collection of jewelery. I remember when she first started so seeing where she is now i felt so proud :D

it’s funny that i just blogged about our escapade shootin with the ipad and i see this on…check it out it’s sooo cooool!!!!! so siiiiiick.
one of the the things i appreciate most about shooting with claud and chris is the dynamism. We’ve come to a point where we understand each other and appreciate each others quirks as well as respect each other professionally. It’s really great to be able to bounce an idea off a person and they take it to the next level and the next person takes it to the NEXT level whereas if i were shooting alone the creative juices would stop a lot earlier. I think what i’m trying to say is that the rate of learning ends up being higher/quicker because throughout the day we’re constantly talking and sharing.
