I don’t shoot many weddings because family connections are what really lights my fire. But when an old friend called to ask if I was available for his brother’s small wedding on a Friday in December, I was happy to yes. The event was to be just 20 people, all family (and godparents) at the Steve’s (the groom) mother’s Oakville lakefront home. This truly was a magical day, we were blessed with 10C temperatures and beautiful sunshine. Who would have thought we would be able to take the formal portraits outside in December!
