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!
The last wedding of the year was on a beautiful beachfront property in Barrie. Bruna and Tom had a small intimate ceremony with their closest family and friends and it was incredible.
Bruna and Tom met here in Canada - their families are from out of the country (Brazil and Germany if I remember correctly) and they made it in to watch this beautiful couple get married. It was so incredibly plain to see just how in love with Bruna Tom is. His eyes lit up the second she walked into the room and the smile never left his face the whole day.
It was a little chilly and the wind caught us now and again...
Brenna and Kyle's big day finally arrived, what was supposed to be the last wedding of the season (I've since booked another!). We started out with bridal prep, the girls were super laid back, and I loved getting to know the ladies. We ran a little bit late - which Brenna wasn't overly concerned about, except she knew Kyle would be!
Off we went to Tiffin Conservation Centre for the first look. It was a beautiful moment as Kyle removed the tartan scarf from his eyes to see his beautiful bride. Then it was some photos of everyone together followed by the ceremony. Bar a few hitches, everything...
This may be a long winded post, but I can't help myself - my very best friend from when we were only 13 has gotten married! I got a phone call about 6 weeks ago to ask if I was busy the weekend of the 22nd, and I was actually not booked with anything. I had no idea Sarah was going to say - ok, I think I might get married!
I was so proud to be a bridesmaid on this beautiful (although chilly) day, and I was so excited that Bob was available to take the photos - if it can't be me, I'm glad it was him :P
We had a very low key, no stress morning at Sarah's place getting our hair and makeup done...
