Kristen came with her amazing family for some fall family photos - if you're interested, check out my schedule for Minis this year!
We had a great time and the weather was amazing - we got some beautiful smiles and I'm imaging those smiles will only grow when they look at their gallery. It's quite a small world, Kristen lives in the same neighbourhood as my sister!
Enjoy some samples!
The pressure was on to get Dave and Nikki's wedding photo blog up - they're dying for the images! So, work work work - and now I finally have something to show them.
Bob and Jessica both came along to shoot this one so I could test my hand at a bit of video. The different angles and images have so far blown my mind! We started with the girls' prep in Lisle - everything was well on their way when we arrived, and after a couple minutes and some quick dress fixes we were able to get Nikki into her dress.
From there, we went to Mississauga to Boadens banquet hall for the ceremony. Dave was a nervous...
This family won my contest around Christmas last year and we finally nailed down a time to get together and take their photos. What a gorgeous family they had with a new little one too!
Thank you for taking part in the contest, and I can't wait to show you your gallery!
Amanda and Scott tied the knot at the Farmhouse on the lakeshore in Barrie. It was a beautiful, quaint ceremony with their friends and family. Amanda's sons walked her down the aisle and she and Scott were so sweet with each other. Afterwards, we went across to the lake and spent a little quiet time taking shots. People would drive by and honk and send their congratulations to the couple - it was beautiful!
Speeches and dinner and dances all came next, and then the night wrapped for me while they kept partying - I'm finally working on getting my blogs caught up and get a chance to share these...
I found myself in Pefferlaw again for Myles & Erica's wedding. Their neighbours were previous clients of mine and sang my praises (thank you!) so Myles and Erica took a chance on me - I know they won't be disappointed!
The guys were getting ready next door, there was laughing and drinking but you could tell that Myles was a little tense. The girls were the same way, but we got everyone dressed and ready and once the ceremony began in the backyard, everyone managed to calm down and let the day play out. Smiles and laughter were everywhere!
We took our photos on a bridge over the river...
I got a call from Pamela about a week before they were having their religious ceremony because they needed a photographer to capture the event. I was already booked for a wedding that afternoon, but the timing worked just right and I was able to be there for them. It was a beautiful ceremony wit their closest family and friends. We popped outside right after for a couple really quick photos and then I was off!
Thank you for thinking to invite me to your ceremony, it was beautiful!
I'm a little late getting this blog out, and I hope you'll forgive me - I was enjoying my much needed vacation in Italy!
But, now I'm back and I have loads of photos to catch up, the first I'm sinking my teeth into it the blog for Devon and Kendra who got married literally the day before I left for holidays.
Kendra got ready at Hockley Resort, it was a cool and calm afternoon complete with quite the down pouring of rain. But the skies cleared right up in time to go to Kendra's parents house for the first look with Devon. I can't tell you how much I loved his reaction! Devon's...
Looks like I can get one more blog in before I leave for holidays in Italy! And what a blog it is too... Erica and Myles drove all the way up to Barrie for their engagement shoot and they rocked it. years ago, I shot a friend of their's wedding and they found me on that advise. i'm glad they did - they're such a wonderful couple that was willing to try all kinds of things for the photos; including climbing some treacherous rocky areas and getting into the stream where it was quite slippery.
I can't wait to see how they fare for the wedding, I'm sure it's going to be pretty awesome!
On the weekend I was invited to take event photos at Steph and Calder's baby shower. The families put on quite a beautiful BBQ party for everyone, with charcuterie, pulled pork, chicken and lots of salads. Did I mention, my oh my, the desserts. There were more desserts than any one person could ever eat! The coconut cream pie just made my whole day (you can check out Murphy's Farm outside Alliston if you want more information!)
Anyways, the kids swam in the pool and played with the dogs while Calder and Steph opened their presents and visited their guests. Stephanie looked beautiful and was full...
