Just Married: Katy and David


Words don’t describe the affection I have for this wonderful pair. Katy and David are good friends of mine and Marcus’, and we felt really delighted and privileged to be behind the lens on their wedding day. It was such fun, and really inspiring and energizing being with these two – and their amazing friends and family!! Their wedding was beautiful and creative – both in terms of people and in detail/decor – but most of all, it was full of love and faith and good-will all ’round.

I’m sorry to everyone who has been eagerly awaiting this blog post. It is overdue!… I hope you’ll find your patience rewarded here in this “sneak peek.”

Just Married: Reagan and Scott | Winnipeg Wedding Photographer

Reagan + Scott Title Pic

Reagan and Scott got married on a gorgeous and VERY hot august day. To say their wedding was beautiful is an understatement…

The happy couple positively glowed — these two love each other a ton — and every detail of the day was so thoughtfully and artfully orchestrated or crafted or placed, making for a truly heartwarming (and fun!) celebration of marriage and community.

Their ceremony and reception were held and the Hitch ‘n Post, which happens to be a location I love photographing. From the weathered wood barn wall, to the colourful and rusty cars, to the lush green trees all about, to the quirky and fun reception hall (the hanging lights are amazing!)… such an aesthetic feast. Reagan worked so hard putting together all the hand-crafted touches — centerpieces and buntings and… you name it. Just look at the pics and you’ll see. It was so pretty and tasteful. I loved it.

Thanks for inviting Johanna (the awesome second shooter) and I to be part of your wedding day, you two! We love your commitment to your relationship, and we love how much joy you find in one another. All the very best in your life together.

Congrats, Reagan and Scott!

And now to the sneak peek….:

Just Married: Jenny and Harlyn | Winnipeg Wedding Photographer


Jenny and Harlyn’s wedding day was a joy and laughter-filled celebration. These two are really kind, beautiful people (I’m convinced that everyone who meets them must like them as much as I do!) who are very much in love. Needless to say, photographing* them was a treat.

They, along with their excellent wedding planner (Amanda – from Like A Star Weddings), put tons of work into throwing a “Roaring 20s” themed wedding, and it all came together beautifully. The ceremony and reception took place in Winnipeg’s MET, and other photographs took place in various downtown spots. This is a good time to give a nod to my excellent second shooter, Johanna Rockwell. Several of the pics featured below were snapped by her.

…Enough talk! I know you’re really here for the pictures:)

Behold! Jenny and Harlyn’s “Roaring 20s” themed wedding Sneak Peek:

Just Married: Jeff and Christine – Part 2 of 2 | Winnipeg Wedding Photographer


Christine and Jeff’s was a beautiful wedding! If you missed Part 1 of this post, HERE‘s the link to it. This is part two, with more photos from our time in the Leo Mol Sculpture Garden and the English Gardens (SO GORGEOUS in fall, I might add!) as well as shots of reception decor details. These two did a fabulous job planning their big day, and all the details – big and small – served to create an inviting and beautiful environment for their guests, and over all, an atmosphere of love and celebration as they covenanted marriage before their friends and families.

Without further ado, here it is: Part 2 of 2





Just Married: Matthew and Moé | Winnipeg Wedding Photography


Matthew and Moé got married late August, and theirs was a beautiful and memorable wedding. Marcus and I went home afterward feeling both happy for them, and grateful for the privilege of photographing their big day.

These two are a total class act (to quote Marcus) – they were the picture of kindness and grace all day long.  I loved how they went out of their way to create a warm, relational, yet super classy environment for all their guests. In keeping with this crazy summer, the weather didn’t look like it was going to cooperate, but last minute the skies cleared they said their vows during a gorgeous – and rain-free!! – ceremony in the outdoor garden at the Assiniboine Park Pavilion. After some mingling and appetizers (and formal photographs!) everyone headed indoors for a delicious meal catered by and hosted in Terrace in the Park.
It was super cool when part way through the reception Matt and Moé surprised their guests with an outfit change, emerging to cheers and gasps in beautiful traditional Pakistani attire. So fun. Not to mention exquisite looking. I loved the celebration of culture that happened that day!!

Matt and Moé, thank you again for inviting us to capture your wedding day!! Enjoy the sneak-peek.



Devin and Alysha Tie the Knot! Winnipeg Wedding Photography



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.




Just Married: Haley and Scott | Winnipeg Wedding Photography


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.




Just Married: Toby and Kevin | Winnipeg Wedding Photographers

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!

Just Married: Amy and Clinton | Winnipeg Wedding Photographer

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.



Just Married: Shannon and Michael | Winnipeg Wedding Photographer

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!
