Spring Is In The Air...

Some fun photos from a few weddings this spring...

The Lucky Man - The Groom


One of my favourite parts of any wedding day is the morning of. This is partially becase I feel like I have the special opportunity to see both the bride and the groom before the formalities of the day begin. I get to witness the many emotions that each of them go through the morning of their big day.

I LOVE it when the groom asks me how the Bride is doing!
I get the special priviledge of reassuring him that the Bride is doing well and looking fabulous!

I just recently started doing this photo / pose with Grooms and so far they have all thought it was a really cool idea!!

I am going to begin offering 'editing packages' for weddings and engagement sessions so that couples who really love a certain style of editing can purchase an editing package in order to get the customized look they love for their wedding or engagement photos!!

Photos of You taking Photos of Me...

Yesterday I took photos of a photographer friend of mine, Jenn Stark of Stark Photography. In turn she took photos of me. It was a lot of fun, but it definitely made for a difficult choice of what to wear that morning. Typically, when taking photos, my hair is tied back, I am in FLAT shoes, and I wear pants and a high collared top which are usually black or some other neutral tone. But for this shoot I wore almost the complete opposite: A floral skirt, a Kelly green silk top, a pearl bracelet and earings and green HIGH HEEL shoes. Lets just say that getting the 'right angle' wasn't the same in this outfit.
The photo shoot was not only a lot of fun but a great time of learning as well!
It is great to be on the other side of the camera for a change as it serves as a reminder of what my clients feel like when I am taking photos of them.
It also great working with another photographer and being able to compare photos and ideas. It got me out of my little box that I had begun working in and thinking about things in new ways.
Thanks for the great photo shoot Jenn and ALL your ideas both for photos and on the business side of things!
Here are some photos from the shoot... more to come of both Jenn and me! :D

First Studio Engagement Session

I had the pleasure of working with a great couple recently and they were kind enough to put up with me getting used to my new studio lighting!

This was my first 'Studio Photo shoot' with my new lights, and my first 'Indoor' engagement session!

The photos turned out great and will look really nice at the couple's June wedding (as apposed to having winter/gloomy engagement photos at a summer wedding).

Because the background is plain and neutral, it puts all of the focus on the couple, and it makes it so that these photos will not only look better at a summer wedding, but they are also now very usable for many things: News paper announcement, engagement announcement, stag and doe invitations, engagement shower invitations, wedding invitations, the slide show at the wedding, the guest signing frame at the wedding etc.

Thanks for being patient while I figured out the new lighting - I think it was a big success! :D

Photo+s Of The Day: "Dance Like A Child"


Monkey'in Around! & Smash The Cake!


Recently I did a fun photo shoot with two adorable children who wore their monkey suits to the session :D! The outfits were their costumes to wear to a jungled themed 1st Birthday party for the little guy! These photos along with the 'Smash The Cake' photos that were taken as well were displayed at his birthday party!

Birthday photo shoots are great not only because the memory of your child is preserved at that age, but also because the photos can double up in use being used for invitations, thank you cards, guest books, or you could have a slide show / album / display of the photos at the birthday itself for friends and family to see!

Photo Of The Day: "Stillness"


On this quite Friday afternoon, with the snow falling lightly in my backyard I felt a sense of stillness and I remember back to this photo that I had taken several years ago.

It is of a sweet little sparrow puffed up & keeping warm in the snow.

Little birds such as this remind me of the verse in Matthew 10:29-31 commonly reffered to in this way: "His eye is on the sparrow"...

"What is the price of two sparrows—only one copper coin? But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows." NLT

This winter in the stillness of the season take time to remember that you are ever so VALUED by God!

A "Keep It Real" Photo Shoot


On New Years I did a photo shoot with 'Keep It Real' a youth ministry group from Southern Ontario that travels doing a skate show, rapping, grafitti and who sell their own 'Keep It Real' clothing line!

I really enjoying shooting things like skate boarding as it is a challenge for me to catch the skater at just the right moment!

They were such a fun group to work with and being that they are all siblings they were very natural and the photos turned out great depicting (I hope) how they really are as a group!

Here are some photos from the shoot! Fell free to take time to check out their site in the future too to see some more of the photos being used there and to see what they are all about!

Engagement Session - Great Location: Wedding Venue!

I LOVE when couples get their engagement photos taken at their wedding location! It adds such an element of excitement to the photo shoot! It is also helpful for me as a photographer to get a good feel for the location and for the spots at the location that the couple would like to take photos in on the day of the wedding as well getting an idea of what poses/style of photography they would like on wedding day. An engagement session is a nice casual setting to talk about all these things with the couple and what better place to talk to them about the photo options/locations than at the venue itself!

In the case of this photo shoot below I was quite familiar with the location already as it's going to be my wedding site, Ball Falls Conservation Area! It is such a great spot and I recommend it as a photo location to any one looking for engagement or even family photos!
This couple was so fun to work with and they were really interest in a more photojournalist style of photography so I focused on trying to catch them when they were emoting their true personalities. I love catching laughs, impromptu hugs or kisses and all round a couple that is not afraid to show their true personality!
Here's What they had to say:
"We had our engagement pictures done at the end of the fall and couldn't be happier with the results. Kendel was super accomodating in scheduling a 'photo-shoot' time and created a blog so that we could preview our pictures. We are 100% satisfied with Kendel's work thus far and trust her 100% in capturing the memories from our upcoming wedding."

A Year at a Glance - Rave Reviews of 2009!


A BIG THANK YOU to all of my 2009 clients! The Reviews you have written about my services are so appreciated and valuable! Your comments have really helped in growing my business reputation and client base! And thanks to those who continue to recommend my photography services to their friends and family!
I Couldn't do it without you!

Some Reviews From 2009:

Alison Said:

"My fiance and I had been looking around for a photographer and when he came across Kendel's website and we saw her amazing work and incredible prices we knew we had to work with her! We recently had our engagement shoot with Kendel and were so impressed with her professionalism, friendliness, and creativity. We were also impressed that we didn't have to wait long to see the photos and we absolutely love them. Kendel offers great products that have really helped us out as well. We're really looking forward to working with her again on our wedding day!"

Nicole Said:
"Kendel has done both my engagement and wedding photos and she is absolutely amazing. Coming from someone who hates having her picture taken, she makes you feel so comfortable and gives great direction. All of the photos turned out fantastic, especially my wedding photos. I am very critical of myself in pictures and usually do not like pictures of myself but I loved every single picture! She created a website/blog for us so we could show all of our family and friends and had some of our wedding pictures up for us to look at within a couple of days. My husband and I are currently trying to decide which picture we want to frame as our main wedding picture for our living room and it is very hard to decide because there are so many to choose from! I advise everyone to choose Kendel for whatever photography needs you have! You won't be disappointed!"

Daienne Said:
"Kendel takes great pictures! She is friendly, and can interact nicely with all of your family members to make each of them feel special.
I highly recommend her services!
Thanks Kendel!"

Anna Said:
"Kendel was a great choice for our engagement and wedding photos. She is patient, has a great eye, and was quick at getting our pictures back to us. She was a perfect choice! Thanks a million!"

Lindsay Said:
"My daughter was turning 3, and instead of the usual Wal-Mart-sitting-duck photo, we decided to go for something unique and playful to match my daugher's personality. Along with the toddler photos (P.S. Kendel is fabulous with children), she snapped a few family shots since it's something we've never done before.Kendel gave great direction and had fun, fabulous ideas of her own. It was fast, painless, professional, and the pictures were sensational! She promised to have a CD to us in a couple weeks, and came back with edited photos (which were a surprise bonus and not even part of the contract we agreed on) within a few days! I wish I could go back in time and have Kendel do my wedding photos too!"

Jenn Said:

"Kendel took photos of my husband and I this past weekend - we are coming up on three years of marriage and decided it would be neat to take some pics in the wedding dress again! I am also a professional photographer and I was amazed by Kendel's endless stream of ideas and loved how clearly she was able to communicate those ideas with us. She made us really comfortable and she was so easy to work with. She had the finished product to us fast and the quality of her work was amazing with such a variety of shots and I especially loved the 'candid' ones she caught of us while we weren't even looking! She has a great natural eye and I know that she will be very successful in her photography career!"
