Quinte West Engagement Photographer – Diana & Cody

Diana and Cody are planning and out of town wedding which just happens to be close to my town. With family ranging from Ottawa to Toronto, they wanted to find a location in between. Beautiful Brighton is the destination and these two will be getting married at Timber House (one of my all time fave venues!) in September.

Diana and Cody took a long drive to meet me at the Quinte West Conservation Area to take some engagement photos. I was a little bummed their dog, Digby, couldn’t make it (I love dogs!) but the photos turned out awesome anyway!

Trenton Wedding, Baker’s Island – Marisa & Drew

I was so excited for this wedding! I can honestly say it’s the first wedding I’ve been to that went off without a hitch!

Marisa and Drew were married May 12th at St. Peter’s Church in Trenton, Ontario. The reception was later held at Baker’s Island at CFB Trenton. Marisa and Drew were my first wedding of the season this year. I’m so glad I could shake the cobwebs off with them!

The family had to pull out the yearbook because can you believe his goals were to “Get a great paying job. Win the lottery. And marry Marisa.” So sweet!

so long 2011, hello 2012!

A new year brings on big changes! I’m now using Shannon Steele Photography as my business name. Still the same great me, just a different name!

I’m so grateful for my past and future clients and all the new friends I’ve made since beginning my photography business. I hope to continue to grow and learn as a photographer. Here’s to an amazing 2012!

And since this is a photography blog, here are some of my favourite photos from the past year:

for the love | band promo in stirling

When an old high school friend approached me to take some photos of his band, I jumped at the chance. It would be fun to get out of my normal realm of weddings and romance and just to hang with the boys for the afternoon. They took me out and about to the streets of Stirling, Ontario. Great guys! Great band!

Make sure to visit their Facebook page here and give them a listen!

Kristina and I have been lifelong friends and grew up together as neighbours for 20+ years. Needless to say I was super stoked when she asked me to take her engagement and wedding photos!

Kristina and Andrew are engaged to be wed in September 2012 in Stirling, Ontario.

Shannon and Aaron are set to be wed next summer and had a desire for Autumn engagement photos. I took them out to Lakeshore Lodge in Picton for a fall shoot. It was cold, rainy and windy but Shannon and Aaron were troopers!

mike + holly | wedding

A quick word about GPS navagation and how it failed me this weekend. Holly told me they were getting married at Camp Barcovan where they keep their seasonal trailer. She gave me the address and asked if I needed directions. My response was “I’ll just pop the address into my GPS and it’ll take me there!”.

Friends, this was the first time my GPS had let me down. It took me to a field no where near where I was supposed to be. But thanks to some streetwise bridesmaids I made my way over to Camp Barcovan with plenty of time to photography Mike and Holly’s wedding.

Next time I WILL be asking for directions!

Here are a few quick shots from Mike and Holly’s wedding while I finish up some editing.

Twyla and Mike are one of those easy-going, fun couples that everyone should know. I met them a few weeks ago to shoot their engagement at the Quinte Conservation Area.
