The Capital, Port-Louis

Port-Louis hasn’t changed a bit since the last time we visited. The sights and the smells are still the same. The city still remains over-crowded during the day and becomes a ghost town at night. It is hard to avoid the crowds when strolling around Port-Louis. The amount of traffic in the city is exactly like we remembered. However, it seemed actually easier to get to Port-Louis with the new road infrastructures in place now.

It’s always a pleasure to visit the Bazaar of Port-Louis: the beautiful colours of merchandise on sale, the  smell of all the spices on display and the buzzing sounds of all the bargaining happening. The pictures below have been captured using the newest addition to our family: the Sony Rx 100 II. We have been pleased with the stills this camera produces and even more with the video quality. However, the most pleasing feature when you are travelling how portable it is; hauling around a full-frame DSLR can be very taxing. I had a first hand experience when travelling through Paris, Lisbon and Barcelona recently.

Luca’s First Birthday

The heavy downpour last Saturday did not stop the party from going on. We had tons of fun with all the kids who have grown so much since the last time we saw them. And as always A+ to Rosemary for the amazing details and decorations.

Happy Birthday to little Luca who is turning one today.

Laura and William’s Engagement

Last summer, William had contacted us to inquire about a special portrait session for himself and Laura. He had a proposal and ring in the works and he wanted to have their special moment photographed.

Together we planned a portrait session for Laura and himself, and kept the proposal a surprise until they were both camera ready.

Here are some of our favourite shots of their engagement from the fall!

An Update

It has been quite some time since we have posted on our blog. Over the past months we have been busy moving into our new place in North York, while keeping busy with work (for Jonathan) and my PhD research (data collection, writing, etc.). We are also in the early stages of planning our wedding, which has also kept us pretty busy.

Given our schedule, it seems like we will be retiring from wedding photography. We always prided ourselves on being well organized, and prepared for all the weddings we shot. Our current schedule would make it difficult for us to do so, and we would never want to be in a position where we can’t give a potential client our all.

We will still be taking on smaller scale shoots, however, such as engagement and portrait (family or solo) shoots. We did shoot a surprise engagement over the fall that we will be sharing that soon!


A Sneak Peek at Sophia’s 2nd Birthday

We were delighted to have been given the opportunity, to once again capture this lovely family, as they celebrate the birthday of little Sophia. Much like last year, we were in awe with all the decorations and details!

Here is a sneak peek to Sophia’s 2nd birthday. Sophia has grown so much since last summer! 🙂
