The Great Nash Diamond Dash

Just under a month ago we had an amazing day covering the Great Nash Diamond Dash.  In the last blog post we highlighted the winners Brooke and Mitch with a video that concentrated on them along with pictures of the whole event.  Now we have the video ready that covers the whole event.

Are you in it?

Congratulation again to Mitch & Brooke!

Everyone else, enjoy the video and we will see you next year.

The Great Nash Diamond Dash

Could Saturday, April 9th, 2011 have been a better day to get engaged?

Ask Brooke and she’ll say, “No!”.

After out-playing 299 other couples Brooke and Mitch scored highest in the challenges during the scavenger hunt put on by Nash Jewellers.

I have to say, Trish and I had so much fun Saturday running around downtown London.  Couples in Diamond Dash blue shirts were scurrying all over downtown London looking for answers to text message clues they would receive on their cell phones.  As we followed them around, to document the fun as the game unfolded, we found ourselves in the ballroom at the Delta Armouries, running around the statue in Victoria Park, drooling over the Rolexes and Lazare diamonds at Nash Jewellers, starring at paintings and graffiti for answers, watching participants fish pennies out of stockings at Libro, peering through the periscope at Novacks and enjoying an after game drink at Jim Bob Ray’s.  It was here we all gathered to find out who the winners were.

The excitement grew as the first three prizes were given away.  Great prizes from Novacks and Steam Whitsle.  Then the last three.  Diamond Earrings, a Diamond Pendant and the finally, the $14000.00 1 kt. Lazare diamond ring from Nash Jewellers.  The crowd was silent as they called the winners cell phone, instead of saying their name, and from the side of the stage there was the most excited scream as Brooke’s cell phone rang in her hand.

The next few minutes were a blur for us and I’m sure for Brooke and Mitch as before any one could finish cheering for the lucky winners, Mitch was down on one knee doing something I’m sure he never thought he would be doing that day in front of hundreds of people.  As the crowd calmed down Mitch quickly said the magical words, “Will you marry Me?”  with the most beautiful diamond ring in his hands.  Of course we all know Brooke said, “Yes” and the rest is history.

Thank you Colin Nash for including us in the coverage for this fun event.  We can’t wait for next year.

We interviewed a few of the 300 couples that attended during registration.  As luck had it, we interviewed Brooke and Mitch before the Dash started.  Here is a rough cut of their day.  The amazing thing about being a photographer is knowing that we have captured history in the making as a family starts.  Brooke and Mitch’s kids are going to love watching this.  How many kids can say they saw Dad propose to Mom and see their first kiss as an engaged couple.

Good luck in the future Brooke and Mitch.



Arrowwood Farms Engagement Session gets washed out. Continues on the side of the road!

London Ontario engagement photography

When we originally made plans to photograph Rachelle and Chad’s engagement session they thought it would be a great idea to do them at the unique location that they were getting married.   Great idea!  It gave us a chance to see this location since we had never photographed a wedding there.

The day came to meet them at The Harvest Table at Arrowwood Farm just west of London, On.  We drove out despite the weather to meet Chad and Rachelle there with Chad’s Harley Davidson.  When we exited the car not only was it raining but unseasonably cold, very cold.  They were smart and didn’t ride Chad’s bike so we did take some time to look around and do some rainy day engagement photos.  Despite the rain and cold and some messy hair we managed a few nice images.  We made plans to meet again for nicer weather and the bike.  They are below too.

Not too long after, we met up with Chad and Rachelle for the engagement session pt.II.  Beautiful weather and a shiny Harley Davidson.

Amber and Tyler’s engagement session at the cottage

It was a dark and stormy night…Well not really, but it did start off bad.  After meeting Amber and Tyler at the Tim Horton’s in Forest we headed to Amber’s cottage.  Along the way it started to rain and then the sky darkened as the rain quickly turned into a wet snow.  What was starting to look like a potentially washed out engagement session, luckily turned out to be a cool but beautiful fall day for Amber and Tyler’s engagement session on the beach.   What do you expect, it was Halloween day.  Not soon after Trish started to do photos inside the cottage, the sun broke through and delivered an incredible rainbow that we unfortunately missed.   This left us with a great day to finish their engagement session outside.

When Amber asked us  if we would drive an hour to her cottage to do their engagement photos, I totally understood why!  Like Amber, I also have a family cottage that means so much to me, and my family.  Amber spent her summers at her’s since she was 12 and her love for the family cottage has rubbed off on Tyler.  The cottage has become a very special place for both of them to spend quality time together and grow their love for each other.  As a father, I know how much I love watching Sterling and Tristan experience so many new adventures that only the cottage can bring.  While talking to Amber and Tyler about their future family, you can’t help but see how excited they are to get married and start a family that I know is going to cherish many summers at their cottage too.   Amber and Tyler, you guys did a great job and look absolutely wonderful together.  We can’t wait to photograph your wedding.  Until then,  here are your engagement photos to show off, taken at a place that means so much to both of you.

Enjoy,

Your Forest Ontario Engagement Photographer,
