Celebrating 25 years in business! Kim Magee Photography, Lindsay, Ontario

March 2018 marks my 25th year in business.   It’s really exciting to say that.  Brings the proud tears to my eyes.  I never thought when I started it would be like this.  At the beginning I was taking pictures of pets and horses and really just wanted to be a National Geographic photographer.  I managed the Zellers photo lab at the Lindsay mall and hung my scenic shots out to help sell frames.  Customers would often ask me to take family pictures for them, but I would say “why would I want to take pictures of people?”  lol

One day a lovely customer, Gail, kept asking me to take her daughter’s wedding photos.  She asked me repeatedly, and finally, I gave in.  I charged $50.  ( Yes, $50 I had no idea what was ahead.)  And that was the true beginning of it all! Thank you Gail for asking and to your daughter Tracy and her husband for allowing it.  You sent me in a whole new direction.  Yes, that’s them in the photo below.

Since then its been nearly 500 weddings,  well over 1500 in family photos, engagements, babies and most recently Beautiful You portraits.  I have made so many wonderful friends over the years, including my best friend as a bride.  I’ve traveled all about Ontario and I’ve been told, I get to talk a lot, which is really a good thing for me. lol   It has been fantastic.  And I have all of you to thank for it.

There are many years ahead and I would love to meet more people. So I’ll be celebrating this year with some great draws, giveaways and deals!  Keep your eyes on Face Book for the good stuff!

In the meantime, check out the video on my Face Book page   I had sooo much fun going through the past.  I wish I had more to show from the film years – which were 15 of the 25- and I wish I could add more people to the video.  However, it started out a half hour long, then I had to keep chopping it down to a usable length. So its 6 minutes long. And if you see yourself in there, send me an email kimmageephoto@gmail.com or if you are watching on FB, then comment your name on there.

Thanks again for all these years.  Let’s go for at least another 20!

Colin & Emily | -30c at Hidden Valley Resort

Colin & Emily’s wedding  ranks right up there with one of the coldest wedding days ever!  It was -30 degrees celsius with a bitter wind, but  the sun shining brightly!  Long icicles hung from the eaves of the beautiful Hidden Valley Resort near Hunstville.   No one complained to be out the cold!  The girls ran out in the snow in their shiny heels and took it even better than the men!   (They’ll probably argue over that one! lol) Emily looked stunning in her flowy gown with her grandmother’s fur stole.  Oh, it was gorgeous!   And their beautiful daughter stole the show at times with those big blues eyes!

Congratulations Emily & Colin! I hope you got to enjoy some place warm for your honeymoon!

Happy Valentine’s Day from Kim Magee Photography

Every morning when I get up, even before I get out of bed, I do my morning scan of facebook.  (I bet like many of you do!)  This morning I saw lots of photos that I had taken over the years, coming across the screen.  I thought, is that a coincidence?  Then I realized it was Valentine’s Day and everyone was showing off their sweethearts.  I can’t tell you how happy it makes me to see years of photographs being shown over and over again, knowing not only that I was apart of that moment, but that all those past brides & grooms are still showing off my photos!  Thank you to everyone for doing that.  It just makes me want to do more!!!    Now, go out and tell someone you love them!  Whether it’s your sweetheart, your spouse, your child, your friend or your parent.  Celebrate LOVE today!

Samantha & Justin ‘s Wedding, New Year’s Eve at the Cambridge Mill

It was one of the coldest days of the year, but the sun was shining bright and happiness and excitement were everywhere.

It was my first time wedding at the beautiful Cambridge Mill, in Cambridge, Ontario.  What a beautiful location on the Grand River, inside a restored mill from 1844.  Romantic and cozy!  What a lovely place for a wedding!  I sure hope to go back again.

Sam & Justin had a large wedding party, full of all their nieces & nephews. What cuties they were!  Pretty little girls and handsome little fellas, with pouty faces and big eyes. So darn cute!  And with the coldness of the day, everyone, including the kids, did well at braving the cold for pictures outside!  I was bound up in long johns, mitts & scarves to shoot, but everyone else held out with just their wedding attire!  Brave and strong!  Way to go!  It was so worth it for the lovely pictures we captured.

A beautiful ceremony, fabulous meal, and a great party,  with lots of crazy dancers,  as the night went on and they rang in 2018! OH, and I wont forget those fabulous donuts.

Happy New Year and Best Wishes to Samantha & Justin!  Frosted for Life 😉
