august update

Well hello friends! I'm reporting to you live from the busiest month of my photography career to date, and I thought I'd pop into my blog to give you a little update on what I've been up to. This morning I'm in Vancouver, sneaking in a few hours of work on one of my few days off. I'm sharing a suite with Brian and our friends, Zach and Dan, and we're enjoying every moment on the wonderful west coast. We're all in town for our friends Trevor and Sophia's wedding, which I couldn't be more excited to photograph in Chinatown this weekend.

Last weekend I was in Toronto to photograph Nicki and Adam's wedding at St. George's Golf and Country Club. That wedding was a really cool experience for me because I had a very special second photographer helping me out — my mom! I've mentioned it before, but my mom is a photographer too and taught me so much of what I know. When my go-to second shooters weren't available for this wedding, I asked my mom if she'd consider working with me. Luckily, she was up to the job and I was so happy to have her by my side that day. It was just lovely. A special thanks to my best friend Jennie for the photo of us on the right, below.

With a wedding every weekend this month, each one in a different city, I'm constantly learning remarkable things about time management, strategic packing, and just generally keeping myself together in the busiest of times. I have lots of news and so much new work to share with you. I hope your August is going beautifully!
