Man, was I wrong about that.

Part of the challenge is that Sarnia doesn't really have any outdoor wedding venues, or if they are there, they are limited in space. We want to have a party, a big one!  But we also don't want to spend our life savings on the whole thing, which means that we're asking for the impossible.

My dream budget is $5000 for everything, including food, venue, dress, flowers, band. The band (Funk Eh!) is already booked, before we have the venue. We have our priorities :)  $5000 is probably not going to happen with 150 people invited. In the dream, we get married on Brights Grove beach, have a glass of wine/champagne to celebrate, then head over to wherever the party is and get down to it!  Oh - and all of this is a 1970s theme. We'll have one of the local caterers I like bring in some tapas and desserts, and we'll funk out until we're tired.

I really thought it wouldn't be stressful this time around LOL!!  Weddings are, just by their nature, I guess. At least my dresses are within budget: my white, simple silk ceremony dress was $150 at Fashion Crimes in Toronto, and my other non-traditional sparkly party dress was $300 from a place on Queen St. Shoes were $40 from Shoe Dazzle :)  

If I find some gems for planning weddings in the Sarnia area, I will post them here!!  I sympathize with trying to plan on a budget, without eloping.

Yellow Rose LDS Show https://www.h3photography.com/blog/2012/7/yellow-rose-lds-show Hey all!

Blogging has to take a little hiatus until I finish my master's thesis!  

However, I thought I would post this picture from the Yellow Rose show, from the Lambton Dressage Show series. It was so hot I wasn't able to finish taking pictures, but I did get some riders. Next show will be better, for sure :)

This is Shannon on her thoroughbred gelding Skye. I thought it looked a little 'Ralph Lauren' esque. This was taken just before 9am, with that lovely morning light, and a light haze in the background.

Belmirage Dressage Show https://www.h3photography.com/blog/2012/6/belmirage-dressage-show Hi all!


Here's a couple of very quick sneak peeks of pictures from the show this weekend. More to come after Wednesday this week -- I am still in the heat of finishing my Masters degree, and have to write a term paper before I can edit photos.

Thanks for visiting!

ArtWalk 2012 https://www.h3photography.com/blog/2012/6/artwalk-2012 Hello again!


ArtWalk is a great outdoor arts and environmental festival held every year in Sarnia, Ontario. I am usually there with the non-profit that I am involved with, One Tomato, but I do like to wander around and take pictures of people and their dogs.

This is my favourite photo from this year, a beautiful boxer who stopped by our booth for a visit.

Macy, Teaka, and Tonka https://www.h3photography.com/blog/2012/5/macy-teaka-and-tonka Hi again! 


Here's a couple of shots from this past weekend's photoshoot with Teaka, Tonka, and Macy. A storm was just starting to blow in off the lake when we started taking these pictures, which really helped keep us all from getting too hot!

It was great to get away from writing my master's thesis for a little while, and I can't wait to get back to being able to do more photoshoots.
