Fogolar Furlan Club Windsor

Fogolar Furlan Club – Windsor Wedding Photographer

Cristina & Pawel

After 6 years, these high school sweethearts are finally married!!!

It was a bright and beautiful day, as we made our way over to the bride’s parents’ house. There was definitely excitement in the air, as the girls were all running around getting ready. And then, as Cristina opened her card from her beloved groom, she discovered he had planned an entire scavenger hunt for her to do before leaving for the church :). All the girls were teary-eyed, as they watched one of her bridesmaids run around the house for Cristina searching for the carefully hidden items.

The ceremony was held at St Anne’s Catholic church in Tecumseh; which concluded with an amazing cheer from friends and family, as they watched the groom dip his beautiful new wife in front of the church doors.

Next was the wedding party and formal photos at the stunning Canadian Club before heading over to the reception hall.

The reception was held at the Fogolar Furlan Club Windsor, where Cristina and Pawel greeted their guests and partook in some polish traditions from mom.

Our favorite moment was the smile on the couple’s face during the first dance. These high school sweethearts were finally married, and they were just glowing!

Windsor Destination Wedding Photographer

Windsor Destination Wedding Photographer – Riviera Maya Mexico

Natalie and Dickson are finally married!

When we took Natalie and Dickson’s engagement photos, we knew we would adore this couple!! They are just so happy and sweet together.

We were happy to be their Windsor Destination Wedding Photographer in Riviera Maya Mexico

Because 65 loved ones made it all the way to Mexico to witness their marriage, we wanted to make sure the guests really got to be part of the photography experience throughout the trip. And unlike any other wedding, every guest got the opportunity to take photos with the bride and groom.

We started off the week with the rehearsal, portrait session, and an engagement shoot. And then the big day was finally here…

After some bride and groom getting ready photos, we headed over to the beach, where their family and friends witnessed them dedicate their lives to one another. Beaming with joy, they were pronounced husband and wife, and joined their family for cocktail hour overlooking the water.

These wedding party photos was some of the most fun we have had at weddings. From running away from the downpouring rain, to bolting back to the beach for a rainbow picture, it was such a memorable day for the couple.

After our formal session with the wedding party, we headed over to the reception, where this family just had a blast! Our favorite moments were the touching speeches and all the love and joy in the room.

Before the trip was over, we were able to shoot a post wedding and a Rock the Dress session with the couple while they were enjoying their very last sunset in Mexico!

Congratulations to you both on your beautiful destination wedding, and we wish you a lifetime of happiness!

Jaques & Richelle

Giovanni Caboto Club Wedding

Giovanni Caboto Club Wedding – Evrythiki & Josh

This GQ groom and stunning bride are finally married!!!

It was a bright and beautiful day, as we made our way over to the groom for the groomsmen photos. We started off with the ‘boys’ at the groom’s parents’ house. It was amazing to see these guys interact, as they are so fun together, but the bond is deep. We then made our way over to all the girls. The entire family was there; aunts, uncles, cousins, family on skype, everyone was waiting for the bride to come out of the room so they could greet her. What an exciting time!!

The ceremony was held at the Greek Orthodox Church in Windsor; which concluded with an amazing cheer from friends and family as they exited.

Next was the wedding party and formal photos at the stunning Canadian Club before heading over to the reception hall.

The dinner was held at the Giovanni Caboto Club in Windsor, where Josh and Evy were introduced in with a group of singers and drums surrounding them to honor them as they entered.

Our favorite moment was the joy in Josh and Evy’s eyes, as he serenaded his bride with a tabil drum!.

Veve from Dream Wedding by Veve did an amazing job as usual with decorating the hall at Giovanni Caboto Club.

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

SLR Lounge Lightroom Presets Review

SLR Lounge Lightroom Presets Testimonial

SLR Lounge just released V6 (beta) of their Lightroom Preset system. I have been using the SLR Lounge Lightroom Preset system since v3 and I love it. I shoot between 20 and 30 wedding a year, at an average of 3000 photos per wedding… well thats a lot of photos to edit. I use Lightroom 99% of the time for all edits and the SLR Lounge Preset System saves me a ton of time editing photos. Its so simple to use and the possibilities of the end result of an edited image is endless. With over 130 presets for a clean edit, to Vintage to HDR effects in seconds.

I can not imagine editing a wedding without the SLR Lounge Preset System.

I created my own Presets for all the photos I edit using the SLR Lounge preset System which mean I can now edit a photo with a click of a button. I will definitely be upgrading to V6.

In the mean time you can order the Lightroom preset System by clicking on the following link:

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!

Windsor Wedding Photographer – St Clair Centre for the Arts Wedding

Windsor Wedding Photographer – St Clair Centre for the Arts Wedding

Hara & Tom – New years Eve Wedding

When Hara and Tom booked us, we knew it would be a great wedding!! A New Year’s Eve wedding, and such a nice, happy , perma-grinned couple!
We started the day out with the bride and the bridesmaids before heading over to see the groom at the Canadian Club’s Heritage Brand Centre.
It was a cool day, but the snow flurries gave the winter wedding a nice feel.   The groom waited in the Art Gallery at the Canadian Club for Hara and Tom’s ‘first look.  The couple was so happy to see each other, and greeted each other with huge smiles.
After some family and formal photos, we headed over to St Clair Centre for the Arts, where their family and friends witnessed them dedicate their lives to one another.  Beaming with joy, they were pronounced husband and wife, and joined their family for cocktail hour.
St Clair Centre for the Arts put on a beautiful dinner service, and onto the formal dances they went, where the guests were just so touched by the groom/mother and grandfather/bride dance.

Our favorite moment was seeing the grandfather’s face dancing with his granddaughter, as well as how Tom looked at his bride.

Congratulations to you both on your beautiful St Clair Centre for the Arts wedding, and we wish you a lifetime of happiness!
