How cute are these two!?
I met Alysha – what? – a year ago now? She and I clicked right away, and have been in touch off an on over the past year as she and Devin worked out the details of their wedding day… Last fall we met up in Assiniboine forest for a family/engagement shoot. Fun! (You can see those pics here.)
The big day dawned with much excitement and anticipation. And their efforts paid off – from details small to big, theirs was a beautiful day. Thanks for inviting me to celebrate your love with you, Devin and Alysha! Enjoy the sneak peek.
Marcus and I walked away from this wedding talking about how super nice Haley and Scott are – seriously, what an awesome, grounded, genuine, kind, cool couple. We felt truly privileged to be part of their day. These two sure love each other A LOT, and their friends and family just added to the joy and warmth between them. It was a great day! (Albeit very, very, very hot — but who am I to complain. I’ll take too much heat over not-enough.)
Enjoy the sneak peek!
p.s. The vests the guys wore are from Guatemala, one of about a bazillion places H&S have traveled to… Also note the sweet travel theme in their reception decor. Love it.
Marcus and I joined forces on Toby and Kevin’s lovely June wedding day…. we had a relatively short time to get a whole lot of pictures, so having the two of us going was great (and fun! I love working with him). This couple is lovely and sweet and kind, and between a stroll about the exchange district, an intimate ceremony at Dalnavert Museum, and a photo session in and about the beautiful, historic site, we had a bounty of photos documenting their special day and – more importantly – their beautiful relationship:) Thanks, Toby and Kevin, for giving us a glimpse into your life and love on such a profound day!!
Enjoy your sneak peek!
When I think about this couple and their wedding day, I am filled with gratitude and warm nostalgia — these two are a match made in heaven (literally), and I feel blessed to know them, let alone to have participated in their festive and beautiful wedding day. Amy and Clint are amazing people, and have surrounded themselves with amazing people… plus, they share a beautiful faith and made their love for God a central part of their day…. so you can imagine that the day of celebrating was a great one: worshipful, peaceful, fun (and so on).
Wish I could post more pics, but with my wee baby squirming about and only giving me moments here and there to post blogs, this sneak-peek is shorter than I’d like (and does not represent the # of pics I love from this day!). Still, you’ll hopefully get a little taste of things.
Amy and Clinton, lots more pics to come!
In the meantime, enjoy the sneak-peek.
Shannon and Michael could not have had a more glorious September Saturday for their wedding day! The wedding day began in Winnipeg, where I got to photograph the bride and the groom each getting ready… and the we moved on to the ceremony, which took place in a gorgeous church building. I was under the weather that day – not to mention getting larger and more awkward with pregnancy – so my dear, sweet husband joined me (and escorted me from place to place – awww), and we enjoyed a scenic drive out to Gimli together where the remainder of the wedding took place.
Michael’s family has a cottage along Winnipeg Beach, so we spent quite a bit of time there photographing Michael, Shannon, and their wedding party. There were so many fantastic photo sites in that vicinity. I can’t decide if I like the pier or the bridge location better. What do you think?
After a fun photog. whirlwind we headed to the reception in Gimli – which was decorated oh-so-beautifully!! I think Shannon and friends must have slaved over the awesome DIY details for ages! I really loved the warm, organic feel to her decor. She used nice purples, oranges and earth tones, and brought in interesting textured items like burlap, lace, wood, wheat…. very cool! You all may have guessed this already, but I LOVE prairie grasses and birds…. and Shannon and Michael’s wedding featured both!
Thanks, you two, for making Marcus and me a part of your big day. You’re amazing people, a great couple, and we wish you every blessing in your marriage!
I just love this couple. They are some of the nicest, funnest (yes, I know that’s not a legit word), easiest-to-be-around people ever. I had such a great time photographing them and their lovely wedding party (thanks guys!).
Ronda and Marty’s wedding felt like a real celebration of their deep love for each other, and we shared so many laughs during the day. Seriously, we laughed a lot. Besides this, I was nigh-giddy about the fabulous fall DIY touches they pulled together. What a ton of work that must have been! I had to dedicate a huge section of this post just to reception details, and even that photo collection is not exhaustive. Their whole theme – from attire and hair, to decor and food – combined warmth and colour with class.
A few decor/aesthetic highlights: Ronda’s dress. Sparkle-covered pumpkins, and birch logs for votive holders. The use of teal! Leo Mol garden for ceremony and Qualico Family Centre for reception (those two spots are a photographer’s dream).
Sigh… what a great day.
Wonderful job, you two! And most importantly, HUGE congrats on your new marriage, to which your wedding day was a beautiful and fitting beginning!
I had such a good day with these two love birds – and their wonderful wedding party! Melissa and Scott are both kind, thoughtful, excellent people… their wedding day was a great celebration of their love for each other. Icing on the cake: they have GREAT style sense and planned out their day beautifully, putting care into details big and small. They thought of everything (!) – fun props, including a sweet “thank you” bunting; a beautiful vintage car to complement their theme; and countless other clever touches that added to the great feel of their day.
It was a privilege to be part of your big day, Melissa and Scott. Enjoy the sneak-peek of your photographs (lots more where these came from)!
Here it is, folks! Part 2 of 2. Here you will witness more moments with the lovely couple, AND…. catch a glimpse of the amazing DIY details at the reception.
(If you haven’t seen Part 1 already, it can been seen HERE.)
Shoot, I’ve done it again! I could NOT narrow down my blog-photo-choices enough and made a big job for myself, putting together not one, but TWO sneak-peeks for this wedding. Seriously, though, Skylor and Sigrid were so great to work with, and so creative, and so in love…. and although I was exhausted after photographing four weddings over 2 consecutive weekends, I have to admit that I had a really wonderful time with these two (and their awesome people: wedding party/family/guests).
I’m so excited about their pics!!!! You are not going to believe the level of DIY creative-excellence exhibited by these two!
But lest I make it sound like the photos or the creativity are the most important thing here, let me say this: they are meant as the icing on an already substantial and amazing cake: a WEDDING. I am honoured that I got to be part of such a profound and sacred event in their lives!!! Congrats you guys! Every blessing on your marriage:)
And…… enjoy the sneak peek.
P.S. One of the groomsmen is my little brother. He’s looking rather dapper in his orange and blue striped tie. Can you spot him?
****Stay tuned for PART 2 – coming your way sometime early next week!!
I have known Reyna for several years now – Marcus and I are friends with her family. I’ve always found her to be an utter delight! So the opportunity to photograph this beautiful girl and her awesome now-husband Jesse on their wedding day was a happy one for me. These two are SO GREAT TOGETHER: a match made in heaven. What a blessing to be a part of such a rich and meaningful (and fun!) occasion.
All the very best to you both, Reyna and Jesse. Love to you both!
p.s. Enjoy the sneak-peek!!
