October 24, 2014 Towery Wedding

Travis and Adrienne are a fun loving, laid back couple, who are full of surprises, and I love it!!

I started the day with them getting ready in Adrienne’s family home. The house was filled with parents, aunts, siblings, cousins and friends… and of course their little Maddison. There were countless smiles, plenty of laughter and many helpful hands throughout the house. Somehow, despite the many eyes searching in anticipation of the groom’s arrival, he nearly got away with slipping in through the back door – but was quickly shoo’ed out to await their ‘first look’ with the proper audience.

If there was anything better than the smile on Travis face when he saw Adrienne, it would be their little Maddi watching them through the window. Adorable.

The ceremony, led by Adrienne’s Uncle, followed soon after. Travis & Maddison came down the aisle together. When announced that “we’re gathered here to unite Travis & Adrienne in marriage”, Maddison cheered from her seat. Heartfelt vows were exchanged, a few tears shed, a surprise poem written by Adrienne as a young girl was read, and then some more tears.

It was beautiful.

Then they said, the most nerve wracking part of the day wasn’t over yet.

Travis and Adrienne took dancing lessons leading up to their Wedding day. Their first dance was no typical first dance at all. They had a dance number and were about to show everyone some fancy footwork!

They. Were. Fantastic!

Guests stood in awe, cheering with surprise and encouragement. If everyone hadn’t already been standing, they would have definitely given a standing ovation as well!

Travis & Adrienne, congratulations!

Thank you for entrusting me with capturing your Wedding day!

October 17, 2014 Moore Wedding

Upon first meeting Steven & Jennifer, it was clear that they adored each other.

They just had this way about them, where they spoke with such love to one another, and always asked for the other’s opinion or input. We discussed their Wedding plans, which they’d already gotten pretty much all figured out, swooned over their adorable daughter Allison for a little bit, and that was that! They were booked, and before we all knew it, Wedding Day was quickly upon us!

While following, watching, and capturing different moments throughout their day, it came to me, that it was each of their selflessness that made them such an adorable and loving couple. While Jennifer wondered how Steven was doing, he was inquiring about her as well, making sure she was happy and well taken care of. Their selflessness extended even beyond each other, worrying over guests running into traffic, and the comfort of their family that awaited the ceremony. Jennifer, even fully dressed and ready to go, noticed her daughter struggling to fall asleep,  just slipped out of her gown to nurse her without the slightest hesitation.

It was just beautiful that during this day, where you’re allowed to be a bit more self absorbed and be catered to, each of them just couldn’t function in that way.

What wonderful people to have in your lives.

October 9, 2014 Maher Wedding

I’m thankful to have been able to get to know Michael & Tara a little more through their engagement session and our preparation meetings. The warm, loving way they’d look at each other while in conversation, even at our first meeting, had me anticipating catching their discreet looks and moments during their Wedding ceremony.

They certainly didn’t disappoint, as there were many of those sweet moments to capture throughout the day.

My favorite part of all (besides the watermelon sours at the candy bar!) was the fact that they’d chosen a daytime wedding. With the reception ending in the early evening, we had some time to sneak out afterward and get some fantastic shots on the waterfront. With the reception over, all worries, anticipations and time constraints were off, and that allowed Michael and Tara to relax and have a bit more fun!

It was great!

Even if they thought I was a little crazy….

October 1, 2014 Carlo Wedding

I was so excited to have the opportunity to capture Matt & Stacey’s Wedding Day!

Stacey and I had worked together about six years ago, at a photography studio incidentally, and after leaving that company, had bumped into each other on only a few occasions since. They were usually pretty remarkable occasions, like when Matt’s band played at a local place downtown, or when they both met me with a donation for a gift basket for a little boy with cancer…

I’m glad to add another remarkable occasion like their Wedding Day to be able to ‘bump into them’ again!

Both Matt and Stacey really wanted to stay true to who they are on their Wedding day….

That meant something more casual and relaxed, handcrafted, surrounded by family, with the shortest possible amount of time focused on them, and of course, Transformers….

I’d say they achieved that! ♥

September 22, 2014 Wintringham Wedding

I’ve never understood people who don’t like Weddings…

Shane and Jaime’s Wedding Day, however, would have certainly changed that crazy person’s mind! From the beautiful, yet relaxed Camp Bournedale setting, the personalized details throughout, and of course the smiles and fits of laughter that filled the entire day.

Plus, the dancing…. the hilariously awesome dancing. What’s not to love?!

It was an awesome experience being able to capture it all!

Especially since I LOVE weddings!

August 29, 2014 & Baby makes 3!

I’m loving the change I’ve made this year to switch my focus toward Weddings. It’s been amazing being able to focus my time and energy capturing such a momentous day in someone’s life. Quite often, however, those’s someone’s decide to expand their family and create a little one of their own. So what do I do when I get a call to photograph their new baby?

Well I do it! Duh.

Some rules were meant to be broken! If my own rule keeps me from getting to capture (& hold and snuggle) a new and adorable little baby, not to mention capture another momentous event in these someone’s lives…. well then that rule has got to go!

So here is the quite adorable Olivia:

SO worth a rule change! Right?!

August 23, 2014 Rennie Wedding

I try not to be too repetitive in these Wedding posts, as it’s just too easy to say that every wedding I’ve photographed was beautiful and personal and so very touching…. because they are. They really all are, despite how completely different each and every Wedding is, I’m always brought to tears by someone, I’m always excited to catch the little details that have thoughtfully been put into the day, and there’s always a look on the Groom’s face, or sometimes maybe just his eyes, when he sees his Bride that I just live to capture.

This Wedding was no different. Except it was.

Paul and Abbie (ok, mostly Abbie, but Paul did help!) put so much thought into every detail of their Wedding Day. What started out as a “no theme” Wedding, quickly turned into this crafty, shabby chic, kind of beautiful DIY Wedding theme. It couldn’t have been more perfect, and was amazing to capture.

Their ceremony, officiated by a close childhood friend of Abbie’s, with readings from another friend, as well as Paul’s daughter, were heartfelt and touching, and, you guessed it – I found myself teary and desperate to blink them away so as not to miss a moment!

Then there’s the look. Paul may have been wearing sunglasses, but his smile was clearly ear to ear from the moment he laid eyes on her. I imagined him recalling that sign in his head; ‘Yep, here comes my girl.’

So how was it different?

Paul’s Best Man was truly man’s best friend. His dog walked him up the aisle and stood by his side. Instead of a flower boutonniere, she wore a burlap ‘Best Dog’ handkerchief of sorts, and she wore it well!

Paul and Abbie also had the only ceremony that I’ve ever photographed, or even witnessed, that started off with a selfie! It was hilarious, seemed to lighten pre-ceremony jitters, and even tapped into my strange love of photographing people taking photos… win!

I honestly can’t say enough about Paul & Abbie’s Wedding Day (clearly). It was such a beautiful day, filled with love, laughter and smiles throughout, a great reflection of who Paul and Abbie are, and it was all shared by happy, supportive and loving family and friends…

Who could ask for more?

August 8, 2014 Twins!

So we know I love babies…. I get that “empty arm syndrome” or whatever, whenever they’re near!!

Now picture this: TWIN. BABY. BOYS.

Yayyyy me!

I was so happy to get this referral (Thanks Rich!) and to be able to photograph these two!

At four months, they weren’t quite sitting on their own, and were sometimes a little reluctant with the smiles… and while there were some places in the house, and an outfit we didn’t get to, I almost left feeling like, “did I get what we wanted?”

There’s always that point when babies, kids… sometimes grownups, are just done. The boys had done a great job and were super patient with me… I just had to go with my gut that what we had was IT.

Wait for it…..

July 14, 2014 Nash Wedding

This is how it started….

A lot of good ol Pinterest and a recreated vision for Save the Dates, that suited Dan and Jenna just perfectly.

19 1024x512 Nash Wedding

It was like…. they had me at “Hello”.

Seriously though… I couldn’t wait to share in Dan and Jenna’s  Wedding Day, and was so excited to be able to capture it all for them!

As expected, the day was filled with many beautiful and thoughtful details, as well as lots of fun, loving, laughing, silly people. We all know that I love the thought in the details, but truly, it’s being surrounded by great people that really makes the day so special and memorable.

14 1024x512 Nash Wedding

Jenna, of course, was not only a stunningly beautiful bride, but was full of laughs and smiles (& maybe a few monkey noises….) throughout the day. There were some teary moments, though happy tears brought on by a thoughtful husband-to-be, seemed perfectly acceptable to all who watched.

(and phoned their husbands to take note of it!)

15 1024x512 Nash Wedding

Then there was this…. this look when he saw her… the look that I live for!

Good job Dan!

16 1024x512 Nash Wedding

After the “I do’s” the party was officially started!

17 1024x512 Nash Wedding

There was dancing, and a few toasts to kick off the night… not to pick favorites, but one was a rap soo…. well i’m picking favorites!

20 1024x706 Nash Wedding

I was so glad to have the ok ahead of time to snatch these two off the dance floor to capture them alone outside before the sun went down!

18 1024x512 Nash Wedding

Dan & Jenna, your Wedding Day was all that Jenna Pinned it to be!

Jokes aside, it really was beautiful, full of smiles and laughter, and a really great reflection of who you are together, and the love you have for each other.

June 21, 2014 Murphy Wedding

Warning! Image overshare is about to happen! I just couldn’t stop!


♥                    ♥                    ♥

Mark and Ashley’s Wedding Day was beautiful.

Spring decided to be be kind and fill the sky with warmth and abundant sunshine to celebrate the day. The Jones River Trade went through it’s usual transformation, this time looking so beautifully shabby chic, with burlap, a little sparkle, and flowers galore.

Mark and Ashley both had their fair share of nerves, but you could practically see it all melt away as they met eyes down the aisle. Vows were exchanged outside in front of a beautifully decorated mantle, while tearful, happy mamas dabbed at their eyes. Love was truly in the air, and it was beautiful to capture.

Need I say it again?

It was truly a beautiful day, from beginning to end.
