on Wedding Bells website!

Earlier this year I was asked by the Wedding Bells magazine to be part of their July 2011 issue.  After about a nanosecond of thought I greatly accepted the request.  I am not quite sure the scale of this, but I did submit some photos and a writeup.  So it will be interesting to see it!

A week or so later I was also asked again by Wedding Bells if I could submit content for questions to ask a photographer.  Well today Wedding Bells posted "10 questions to ask your photographer" on their website.  Check it our here!

Pretty cool, and thanks to everyone at Wedding Bells!

Emily and Janith - Engagement

Below is my sunset engagement session with Emily and Janith.  I had already shot their wedding earlier this year, but they still wanted some engagement photos.  Its always nice shooting photos for people who love photography.  We shot these during Rib Fest in Burlington (man, those ribs are good!!).  Here are some of the highlights.

Crossfire Night Shots

A good friend of mine just purchased a Crossfire sports car.  It's not too often that I get to shoot photos of cars.  I have done a few in the past and I really enjoy it.  At 2am one morning we went out and I grabbed a few of these shots.

Workshop, 2009, the baby!!! :)

Just in between projects at the moment.  I am happy to say that I just attended a 3 day photography workshop with renowned photographer David A. Williams.  David has truly mastered the art of what is photography.  I can't begin to tell you how inspiring and helpful these last 3 days have been.  They will be tools I will definitely be implementing into my own work.  Thanks David! I just wanted to mention that as of July the 1st I will be setting my 2009 Wedding Pricing.  There are still dates for 2009, so if you are interested please contact me while the 2008 pricing is still available.  All my 2008 dates are now booked.

And on a really really happy note.  I am pleased to say that my wife and I are expecting a baby at the end of October of this year.  Mel is 5 months along now.  This is our first child, and I can't tell you how excited I am to be a father! 

There are lots of things to come very soon, I just haven't had the chance to blog some of it.

Cenotes, Changos and Sol - OH MY!

Wow!  How cool was this?!?  While we were down in Mexico, Mel and I were lucky enough to hang out with Sol Tamargo (our wedding photographer....minus Matt - he was shooting weddings in Atlanta).  We went for lunch at one of her favourite restaurants in Playa del Carmen, La Cueva del Chango.  I am a big fan of french toast and Sol highly recommended it.  Even though it was lunch I still ordered it :) ...it was probably some of the best french toast I've ever had!

Here are some photos taken around Playa del Carmen.  Mel and I really loved this city.  It's sooo big! 

A couple days later we met with Sol for a Cenote adventure.  Cenotes are underground water caves.  These were absolutely amazing!  Sol and Matt have done some really cool Trash The Dress photography in them. 

Our guide told us that these Cenotes were over a million years old and only discovered 4 years ago.  If you are claustrophobic - I wouldn't recommend these! 

On our walk to the Cenotes we came across the changos (monkeys in Spanish).  Of course we had to stop!  Sol captured some images for us on my camera.


 This one had an itch and wanted Mel and I to scratch it :)

Okay - now onto the Cenotes!

This is the best shot from my underwater disposable camera.  Mel and I are snorkeling away :)

Mel, myself and Sol.

Thanks Sol for taking the time out of your busy schedule to hang out with Mel and me.  We had such a blast!

One Afternoon In Paris

It was a really nice day today - so I decided to go for a walk around downtown Paris and bring my trusty camera along too.  Here are a couple images of downtown Paris around sunset. paris_blog11.jpg


Anyone missing a pair of shoes?




The new www.marcdouglas.ca is now LIVE!

I have been working the last couple weeks on getting a new website up.  I am very happy with the new format, the pictures are bigger and its pretty easy to navigate.  Let me know what you think or if you have any loading problems.  (You have to have flash player 8 or higher to run it properly, i think most people do)  Thank-you everyone for all your support!


My own wedding photos!

I thought that some of you may want to see a few of my own wedding photos.  We just received them in the mail.  We flew two amazing photojournalist photographers down to Punta Cana, D.R. to cover our own wedding.  Sol Tamargo and Matt Adcock are Del Sol Photography based out of Atlanta, GA and the Mayan Riviera, Mexico.  It was truly a pleasure to see them do what they do best.  It really made me appreciate my love for photography.  They really worked their butts off, and in turn gave us some amazing photos...which you can see by down below.   Cheers to Sol and Matt!
