The Swimmer and the Aviator.
(mini-interview with the bride follows)
Quick... name some things I enjoy, and combine them into a perfect shoot...
Nancy and Rick are friends of friends, and I was truly honoured to be asked to photograph their low-key backyard wedding. I love lurking on the fringes, with a silent camera, and capturing the moments. Thank you both for a lovely afternoon!
Oh, and just for the heck of it, add two unique wedding rings.
Proust Questionnaire: Nancy Kuehner
Where did you guys first meet?
Online! Fitness Singles we were both competitive swimmers, Rick was a US Navy Pilot… Rick flew to Toronto a month after first connecting online... 6 weeks later I was in Sicily... 6 weeks later he was retired and in Toronto...18 months later married!!!
Where is the best place for a first date?
I do not think it really matters as long as you can be yourself, first dates are exciting and scary, you want to feel as comfortable as you can.

Don’t be scared, you’ll survive and in 1 year if it was a crappy decision no one will remember everyone is too consumed with themselves to be thinking about you anyway (heh heh).
What article of clothing was your worst choice, in retrospect?
Not just for dating but going out in general uncomfortable shoes - ugh!!
