Simran & Gravinder are to be married in April 2011 and they wanted to have their engagement session done this year as oppose to next year. They contacted me by email and we were able to arrange an engagement shoot on November 10, 2010. They are such a beautiful couple and it was easy to make them comfortable in front of my camera.

Engagement: John & Elizabeth

In Around Vancouver, Cameras, Canon 50mm f1.4, Canon 5DMKII, Canon EF 135mm f2.0 L, Canon EF 35mm f1.4 L, Canon EF 85mm f1.2 L II, E-Shoot, Gear, Lenses, Photography Service, With friends, With People I love on 09/01/2010 at 12:00 pm

John & Liz met at Our Lady Seat of Wisdom which is a small Catholic university in rural Ontario. They were engaged on July 21, 2010 and are set to be married next year on July 16, 2011 at Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel at St. Michael’s Catholic Church, in Douglas, Ontario which is Elizabeth’s home parish. With John and Liz, it was easy to see true love shine. I asked them one simple question and that was “What makes your other half so special to you?” So rather than talking on their behalf, I’ll let them share their own replies.

In Brand Shoot, Canon 5DMKII, Canon EF 135mm f2.0 L, Canon EF 24-70mm f2.8 L, Canon EF 85mm f1.2 L II, JustALilHype, The Others on 08/07/2010 at 12:04 am

This summer, I took the time to learn theory, write notes, draw lighting diagrams, scout for locations, and talk to local portrait photographers. Once I got out of clinical on Aug 4th, it was time to apply what I learned! Immediately, I was booked for a shoot with JustALilHype – a Vancouver based online magazine. They contacted me, and asked me to shoot a clothing retailer named “The Others”.

069/365 – The charter of norms

069/365 – The charter of norms

I have mixed feelings about having classes go from 1230-1730. I have the chance to take my time in the morning, yet i come home by 1830 – which really sucks.

Anyways, on thursdays, i have 2 nursing courses back to back and today, we decided to write up a list of the charter of norms. These are rules WE think that the teacher might enforce. The one that really stood out to me was, “Hourly tea/pee breaks.” Lol.

Oh. And i wrote the top one, “Be open minded & respectful”. Creative, eh?

068/365 – Lining up.

068/365 – Lining up.

So let’s skip ahead to January 6 2010. I admit that i have dropped the ball on this project, but i’ll pick it back up now and get it rolling again. This shot was taken on January 4 2010, and it was everyone’s first day of school for the spring term.

I spent most of that day in not just 1. Not 2. But 3 excruciatingly long line ups. I first lined up to attain my U-pass in the C building. After that, i had to get my photo ID’s renewed. And then i lined up to get my nursing books at the bookstore.

I was released from class at 11.30, but went home at 3 because of the said line ups.

054/365 – The Christmas Tree is UP!!!! YAY!

Finally! It’s dec 14, 2009, and now the christmas tree is up! Janelle’s family brought their tree and decorations up on remembrance day and as christmas approached, i wondered when we’d get our tree up.

This angel has been with our family for so long now. i think it’s been about 10 years now, and auntie evy gave it to us. – i am not 100% sure. i’d have to check my sources.

036/365 – Basti

I was at the mall today, grabbing an olympic pin when i saw basti! he’s my day 36! He’s my friend’s cousin! what can i say about basti? hmm.. He’s so much fun to play with. One day, we were playing wii sports – bowling and when i won, he got really pissed off and started throwing things at me – which was pretty funny, but got really serious really fast when he threw the wii remote at me – man it really hurt. Tsk tsk tsk…

035/365 – Old Toys.

This was from a couple of years back. I dont even know what the name of the actual character is but all that i know is that it’s from the Lego Bionicles Series. I have 4 full boxes of Bionicles in storage. And i’ve kept the original packaging, and all of the original pieces. I’ve bought EVERY SINGLE bionicle that came out at that time. I’m sure that they have something new and gay now, but these were the beginning of it. What attracted me was the story line and look of the toys. They looked so evil, and i really liked that. I collected these with my brother, up until the day we realized that we’ve spent more than 2000 dollars on these toys. I think the day we stopped was when we looked at each other and said, “WOW! we could have bought a PS2 and some games to go with it!” hahaha. Good times.

034/365 – Chocolate Milk!

Oh my goodness!! I REally really really like chocolate milk! ITS SOOOOOO GOOODDDDD!

today, i didnt really know what i was going to take a picture of. When the clock hit 11.00PM, i was panicking because i didnt know what to post. When i went downstairs to grab some milk,i realized that i had to post a shot of it. I set the camera on a tripod, change the drive mode to “speed mode” on the 5D and i asked my mom to hit and hold the shutter as i poured the milk into the cup. It took me two cups of milk to get this shot! – i drank both of them. YUmmm…
