Happy #WeddingWednesday friends!
We are so excited to finally reveal our long awaited secret-project, perfectly embodying the magic of summer and what it's all about. This shoot takes place in our favourite place - the beach, and is filled with brilliant bold colours, sunshine and incredible sunsets. So summed up; all we love about summer.
I am so honoured to have been a part of this stunning project designed and styled by the amazing Vanessa at He First Loved Us Weddings together with the Parlour Soiree decorating team and our breath-taking model Becca was everything a photographer dreams of working with.
That stunning summer day was filled with fun and excitement and needless to say, I have definitely made some wonderful friends in this incredible team of vendors that I am so excited to work with again.
From He First Loved Us Weddings - We are very excited to share this beautiful styled bridal shoot with you (which is our first ever) at the Port Dalhousie Pier Marina in St.Catharines, Ontario! In planning, we set out to capture the magic and romance of the summer carnival--and what better way to do that then with an antique one hundred year old carousel (that is fully functioning, might I add)? Combine that with beautiful hues of blush and mint, bold statement jewels, an ethereal Vera Wang ballgown, and a fun colourful wedding cake from Honey Bake Shop and it was truly magical. With the help of Parlour Soiree (who also put together our beautiful blooms and glittering table) we added vintage details like a typewriter and record player to pull the magic together in the best possible way. It was all captured incredibly by the very talented Denisa, of Redeemed Photography. Our hopes are that when you look at her amazing photos, they evoke in you feelings of fun, young love and endless summer.

When I think of these two, it's only words like " beautiful, blessed, holy, joyful, spirit-filled" that come to my mind. And their wedding day was nothing short of those words. They had a small, family-filled ceremony and celebration, and I am so grateful that I got be among all of those incredible people.
Every face I looked at, the smiling face of Christ shone through.
Sarah & Dave first and foremost, are so full of the love of Christ, running faithfully their race of holiness towards their King. It's incredible to see two people so focused and on fire for Christ, and so in love with one another too, and choosing to partner together in a life-long pursuit of building the Kingdom. They had communion together for the first time as husband and wife, on their Wedding Day, and worshipped the Lord together in songs with all their friends and family. It was truly a Spirit-Filled ceremony.
They actually first met while missioning in New Zealand! (so cool) He's from Canada, and she's from California, and the Lord brought them together and oh man is He ever glorified through these two and their love. I'm so excited to see what the Lord will do through them! Between our coffee meetings and skype dates, they became dear friends to me very quickly.
They are so perfect for one another, and even more perfect together. God bless you Sarah & Dave and may He keep you both madly in love with His heart and each other, glorifying His name!
PS. Isn't her niece the cutest thing ever?! she has a baby brother who's just as cute! AND they're expecting another yummy bundle of cuteness!
On August 1st, Tim & Catherine tied the knot in the beautiful Westcroft Gardens of Gross Ile (by the way, I never really understood the whole "American Dream" thing until I stepped foot on this little island. It was like out of a movie or something. Green everywhere, sun is shining and everyone is walking and the most beautiful landscaping EVERYWHERE. And I'm not even gonna talk about the houses right on the river.)
Cat & Tim are honestly THE most adorable couple. Cat just oozes of cuteness and she has the sweetest and kindest heart. Their love for each other is soooo obvious it's ridiculous. Every man should love his woman the way Tim loves Cat. All in all, it was a perfect day. Full of beauty and overflowing with love and so many more emotions that make each wedding day special.
At this part, Tim said "I do" very eagerly but before he was supposed to and it was the cutest and funniest moment haha!
ps. here's a shot of the behind-the-scenes of what we do to get the perfect shot. ;)
In February, I had the joy of shooting this beautiful couple's breath-taking barn wedding. Not only was it a total blast, but it all went so so smoothly (besides the crazy wind when we tried to take photos outside..). Almost everything, all the decor you see was done by Bethany and her family and friends, all DIY. So so beautiful!! The cutest little flower girls and Vali's son EJ (now bethany's son also) making us all smile constantly. And how cool that Bethany's dad was the one who actually officiated the wedding!
It was a beautiful wedding day, filled with so much love from their family and friends!
I am so honoured to have been able to shoot your beautiful day and have been a part of it. I don't know two people that deserve all this joy than you two. I pray a lifetime of happiness, and God's hand over your marriage and life together, Vali and Bethany.
Congratulations to the Beautiful New Family!
