Michelle and David married!

David and Michelle have been close since they were 14 years old.   There’s an obvious comfort and delight in each other;  in who they are, individually and together.   In their attitudes, in their approach to the world, they’re like warm hearted children.   Fun, welcoming, sincere and real.

Thank you Michelle and David for having me document your wedding!

See more in a video of slides from the day:

David Sturtevant - Jay, thanks for making this a great day. Lots of people have stories about their wedding photographers, some good, some bad. Ours are all good, and these pictures are amazing. You are unobtrusive and fun, and we knew that all of the special moments would be captured by you. Thanks particularly for the snacks and water, it really pulled the ladies through the day!

Jay Parson - Thanks David! It really was a pleasure.

Tijana and Andrew are Married!

Andrew and Tijana had a big, fun celebration that was all about the people and it lasted their whole wedding day.   They take great care of their friends and family.   It’s unusual to see 2 people who are so organized and fun and personable  . . . all at the same time.

Friends were also up for adventure:  rock climbing in high heels! :

Thanks Tijana and Andrew for having us document your day!

Shawna and Andrew Married!

Shawna and Andrew put together a relaxed, easy going gathering for their wedding in downtown Kitchener.   I love how confident these two are;   comfortable being themselves and stress free.  We started with a ceremony at City Hall and ended at the Museum.


A relaxing break at A Matter of Taste, chatting and joking with friends.


This gentleman cheered them on!   . . . loud!!


TARDIS CAKE !!!

Andrew busting moves.   It was great to see his obvious enjoyment . . . all day long.
