James and Lisa Laughlin have compiled stories from World Champion Pipers, Drummers, and Drum Majors into a 200 page limited-edition hardcover book. They sent me a list of story contributors for Our Journey asking if I had any related photos. As it turns out, I have quite the collection of images throughout the years (along with images from 11 other contributing photographers). The book was an ambitious undertaking for the Laughlins, and the stories told by each World Champion are truly inspirational. It’s a great time of the year to order one for those hard-to-shop-for Pipe Band folks on your Xmas list!
I had a session with the MacKellar Family at their home in Timberlea, NS. Both Ainsley and Gregor play with the 78th Highlanders (Halifax Citadel) Pipe Band so we had to make a good racket with the pipes and drums during the session.
Meghann and Geoff were married in Kelowna, BC. They chose to have their wedding where Geoff grew up and had the ceremony at his family orchard, Wendell Fruit and Vines. I spent most of the morning with the girls and also followed Meghann and Geoff’s kids around while they made dinosaur noises. The ceremony was held in the late afternoon and it was HOT. I’d only visited Kelowna one other time (winter), and was definitely ill-prepared for the heat in the middle of the orchard (wearing black head to toe, boots, you get the idea…). Black isn’t always best!
Here’s the happy ending to the story of two co-working Vancouver paramedics who fell in love! I believe I met Gord not too many years after I moved to the West Coast when he became one of Jamie’s piping students…and a fast friend. Maggie came along a few years later, but together they’re the perfect combination! I was happy to be able to capture their wedding day at the Hotel Grand Pacific before we spent the evening celebrating with their family and friends.
