July 24, 2015 Cabral Wedding

I recently had the pleasure of capturing Kenny and Amanda’s, or, should I say #BoopsWedding.

Somehow I’m still not completely positive who Boops is, however, since now they’re married, maybe they’re both Boops? Could that be a thing?

All Boops aside, the day was nearly as beautiful as the bride herself, the humidity took a break, just for this occasion, and everyone was just so happy for this long awaited day to come.

After a first look in the park, any nervous jitters were definitely more settled.

Then an epic ceremony speech filled with (how many? Well… A LOT…) television show references to, about, and offering advice to the future Mr & Mrs filled the room with laughter and smiles all around.

Some teary ‘I do’s’, then the celebration was well under way.

It was a wonderful day and evening, filled with so much beauty, lots of laughs, and a whole lot of love.

Just perfect!

Congratulation Mr & Mrs Cabral!

July 10, 2015 Williams Wedding

Corey and Rachel are such a kind an easy going couple. From the our first meeting, to engagement photos, everything was smooth, easy, and always carried out with smiles and laughter.

It’s no surprise that the tone of their Wedding day would be no different.

Adding to the tone, the attention to detail and eye for creativity that was put into planning this day did not go unnoticed.

The result was pure elegance.

Even more than things going smoothly, beautiful decor and easy going attitudes, this was a true celebration of love and family. It could be seen, heard, and felt everywhere you went.

A fantastic foundation to build a marriage. ♥

*Plus, it should be mentioned, that I believe Corey & Rachel may have danced with nearly all of their guests, at least once! So much fun!

March 30, 2015 Furst Wedding

I’m here to make your Monday better!

Meet Josh and Kelley.

They were married on 3.14.15 ; Pi Day.

The relation of pi to a circle, such as the circle of a wedding band… as well as relating pi to PIE, like the ones given to their guests as favors….
A++ for planning on that one!! I absolutely loved it!

Not only was that pretty awesome, but they’re pretty awesome as well!
Kelley, the clear organizer of the pair, had all the details of the day accounted for and taken care of, and she made sure nobody was left out along the way. Josh, well he wanted to be sure everyone not only had a great time, but knew how much he loved appreciated everyone involved in this day.
Sometimes that appreciation came in the form of a giant squeezy hug!

December 5, 2014 A family engagement

The other night night I awoke to a text message.

No emergency… my brother in-law had proposed, a day earlier than he’d planned, to his girlfriend Ashley.

(& she said YES! Phew!)

I sent back a dreary, happy, congratulations reply and went back to bed laughing about how he couldn’t wait one more day, and wondering about all the hints he’d likely dropped that had her on to him.

The next day proved to be a beautiful, sunny one, and as I laughed to myself about all this extra time they’d have on their hands, (since he’d proposed a night earlier than planned) I thought… maybe I can get them out for some engagement photos?!

That was a pretty great idea.

It was cold, but Ryan and Ashley are a fun and funny couple, and both were still in that super happy, just engaged, omg zone… so it was a really good time. I honestly can’t remember the last time I laughed so hard…on the ground…in the road.

Yep.

Congrats again, you two! ♥

November 17, 2014 Downey Wedding

Ryan and Lauren chose to have a longer engagement, so when they’d call to secure their date with me, it seemed so far away! Since meeting last year for their engagement session however, the time just seemed to fly, and Wedding Day was upon us! I couldn’t have been happier, as I knew that the fun shots we were able to get for their engagement session were just a preview of the fun and surprises in store for their Wedding Day!


Here’s a quick look back!

Wedding Day:

Ryan actually started off the surprises with a pre-wedding gift; a beautiful necklace that Lauren ended up wearing down the aisle. She hadn’t chosen a necklace to wear with her dress, and this one fit and complimented it so perfectly. It was a perfect surprise.

Lauren had a couple of surprises planned for the night. First, she surprised Ryan, and all of her guests, with an Elvis impersonator to sing their first dance song. The grin on both of their faces as they danced was perfect. Next, another surprise of the singing variety; this time Lauren, with a solo of her own. She beautifully sung to Ryan, and all of their guests, and then  excitedly announced the opening the dance floor.

Top all of that off with funny and heartfelt toasts, a beautifully decorated “Fall in Love” themed venue, a fantastic DJ who kept the dance floor filled, and a super fun photo booth – it was a fantastic night for all!!

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.

Huh?

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!
