A couple weeks ago, I attended Rose & Bart's wedding at Holland Marsh Winery. It's a beautiful venue with an amazing outdoor view for photos. The weather held out despite the rain surrounding the day in the forecast. We met up before the ceremony to do photos with their kids and it was a blast. Bart wanted a photo with Godzilla chasing them, and I'm hoping I didn't disappoint!
After photos, we moved toward the ceremony location to greet the guests as they arrived, and enjoy some cocktails before the ceremony. When we started the ceremony, it was beautiful. The whole day was perfect from...
Jamie and Brad tied the knot on their property, and I was there for the wedding photos. When I arrived for the bridal prep, everyone was so laid back and relaxed that the getting ready part of the evening flew by. We had some fun getting the dresses on, and the girls shared a couple drinks.
When we got tot he ceremony, everyone was waiting with bated breath for Jamie to walk down the aisle - and when she did, no one was disappointed! We worked through some pictures and moved into a wonderful pig roast. The highlight of the night was when I realized that a teacher from my elementary school was in attendance!
I'm a little late working on this blog (and I have a couple others to get going too!). Julianna and Jason got married in March and I was really honoured to be able to photograph their wedding. I've known Julie for a long time, and when she and Jason approached me about covering the wedding, I was jumping all over it before we could even sit for coffee.
Jessica and I arrived at the hotel for Jason's preparations and while his nerves were a little apparent, he looked absolutely dashing, and his family was all smiles. Julie's place was equally busy but when we got upstairs to get her dressed everything...
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...
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!
Laura and Matt got married at Belcroft Estates outside of Innisfil the past weekend and it was a stunning day! The week prior had been fraught with heat and then rain but the Saturday was perfect. There was a light breeze and just enough sun to make the inside of the barn light up perfectly.
I started out with Laura's prep, but moved in between the girls in the spa and the guys in the man cave at Belcroft. What a surprise it was for me when Jaclynn from Divine Hair Studio was there to get the girls hair all done - you may remember her from her beautiful bohemian wedding last year at Drysdales.
In June, Amber and Kevin tied the knot in a beautiful outdoor wedding in Oro. The sun was shining and the wind was blowing but it was a mild and gorgeous day. The wedding seemed to go off flawlessly - except when in the middle of the ceremony a cell phone rang. It's ok, it was Kevin's! Everyone had a good laugh and then we proceeded.
The photos were a lot of fun, and the dinner (cooked by Amber's sister) was amazing - all in all they had a phenomenal day!
Congratulations Amber and Kevin!
