Same Sex Windsor Wedding Photographer

Same Sex Windsor Wedding Photographer  – Mike & Kevin

Jaques Scheepers Photography had the privilege to photograph Mike and Kevin’s same sex wedding at Essex Golf and Country Club.

How better to celebrate your 2 year anniversary than by getting married !!!

It was a beautiful fall day for their wedding!  We started out with the groom getting ready shots and the gentleman’s formal photos.

We then headed into the ceremony area, which was held at Essex Golf and Country Club.  Everything was set up perfectly by the club, and the guests couldn’t wait to be a part of this amazing day!

The guests all got to greet the newly married couple at the cocktail hour, where a beautiful toast was done by Vera, the officiant.

Our favorite moment was the beaming faces of these grooms coming down the aisle after they were married.

Congratulations to you both on your beautiful Essex Golf and Country Club wedding, and we wish you a lifetime of happiness!

Same Sex Windsor Wedding Photographer Jaques & Richelle would love to hear from other same sex couples looking for a wedding Photographer.

Windsor Wedding Photographer – Ojibway Park Engagement Shoot

Windsor Wedding Photographer – Ojibway Park Engagement Shoot

This adorable couple have been together for years, and now they are finally tying the knot!

When Josh and Evy told us that they wanted a winter shoot, we knew it would be challenging, since Windsor doesn’t get much snow.  But this year, we lucked out. We knew Ojibway Park would make a great spot for an engagement shoot in the snow.  It was a beautiful cool and sunny winter day for their engagement photos, and they brought along some cute props for the shoot at Ojibway Park in Windsor.

They laughed, had a snow ball fight, and share some sweet moments together enjoying each other’s company at Ojibway Park.

Windsor Wedding Photographer – Whats in my bag

Whats in my bag

Lots of Amateur photographers are always asking me about my gear and what I use on photo shoots.

Well here is my story and what is in my bag!

 At a very young age, I realized that my dream job was to be a Professional Photographer. I got my first point and shoot at the age of 10 and bought my first SLR at age 15. Born and raised in South Africa, most of the photos I took were of wild life and nature. In 2001 I moved to Canada, and in 2008, I bought my first DSLR: a Nikon D90. Since that day I have never used Film again. I upgraded to a D7000 and in 2011, my dream came true when I became a Full time Wedding Photographer.


 I upgraded to a D3s and then bought a D800. A year later, I bought a D4. I shoot weddings full time with my wife, who came from the wedding industry as a wedding planner.

 I carry two cameras with me at all times during a wedding. My D3s has a 24-70mm f/2.8 lens on it, and my D4 has a 70-200mm f/2.8 VRII on it. That way, I am able to reach anywhere from 24-200mm and not miss anything.

 I use a lot of off camera flash and use 3 SB910 flashes and 1 SB900. I use Phottix Strato II as my off-camera triggers.


 During the Bride getting ready portion of the day, I use a 105mm f/2.8VR Micro lens, a 85mm f/1.4 and a 50mm f/1.4 lens. During the Ceremony and Reception, I only use my 24-70mm and 70-200mm lenses. The 70-200mm f/2.8 VRII is my go-to lens and I can’t imagine shooting any kind of shoot without it!


 Weddings, although very stressful, are a lot of fun. My wife, Richelle, and I work together extremely well. She is my second shooter, but she also takes care of everything I am not so good at. Which pretty much means she does everything else the business requires while I edit and make albums.


 We shoot approximately 25 – 30 wedding a year.

 I wouldn’t give up my Professional Wedding Photography life with her for anything!
