Oh these two....how I love them! We first hung out when it was minus 21 degrees celcius for an early morning engagement session last winter. Needless to say, it was the complete opposite for their August wedding - one of the hottest days of the summer actually! Lets just say that along with the tears, there was also a lot of sweat shed :) Actually, these two are too happy to shed many tears, they were too excited and in love and it exuded from them!
Kayla and Dejan, I adore you, had a great time at your wedding and hope we meet again :)
It is not often that I take a million portraits on a wedding day. Yes, we take some, but the focus is usually on the story, the love, the emotion, the real moments of the day.
However, when you have some fun light to play with, and a GORGEOUS bride like Christina who is just so quirky and fun and photogenic, well…you take a million more portraits than normal.
“I had a vision for an “outside the box” styled wedding shoot. I wanted to do something different than the usual – greenery, pretty, pastels and more. (Not that I don’t love those too!). Seeing as Halloween was just around the corner I contacted a group of local vendors about doing a dark and mysterious Halloween type wedding. The goal was to create a vision that could actually be a real wedding, so that if engaged couples were to view the styled shoot they could vision themselves having a Halloween wedding. The other goal was to keep it elegant, and not too “themey”.

2017 wedding and elopement portraits
Here are some of my favourites from 2017 - I had so many that I felt I needed to put them in categories this year!
Starting with THE MORNING OF, and continuing with Emotional Moments, LAUGHTER and JOY, Kids + Pets, SELFIES (because there are sooo many), Bloopers and Funny Moments, Party Time and Sentimental Moments.
Kate and Jordan eloped (sort of) at Thingvellir National Park in Iceland, at the cutest little green and white church. I am blessed to have tagged along with them, and enjoy this experience and the beauty of Iceland for myself.
Jenna and Rory. They have a wonderful love story of two families who spent summers on the same lake. And since Jenna is a writer I'm going to let her tell you in her own words because they will sound much better than if I wrote them. Jenna and Rory got married on a mild fall day at a quaint restaurant called the Black Forest Inn, that they said "felt like the cottage", so it was the perfect place for these two cottagers to get married.
