Wedding | Brenda & Shane

Brenda and Shane hosted their nearest and dearest for their intimate DIY backyard wedding at Brenda’s parent’s beautiful country property in Mitchell’s Bay on what was most likely the windiest day of the year.

This day was full of love… and wind. Lots of wind.. but mostly love. Their love for one another was undeniable. Their love for their family and friends was evident, and the love they received back was so heartwarming! There was so much love floating around that there was even a surprise proposal that took place shortly after the ceremony!

I must admit, I’ve never used the words “break torque” in a sentence before this day, or (let’s be honest) really even knew what it meant, but Shane’s request to capture him and his groomsmen performing this feat in his car made for some excellent photos of the happy couple at the end of the day. Brenda and Shane, you’re perfect for one another, and I feel so special to have been a part of your story! Thank you. xo

Newborn | Jackson

Meet Jackson! This little dude stole his parent’s hearts, and their wedding anniversary when he decided to grace the earth with his presence. So now, they get to celebrate not only their wedding, but also the birth of their baby boy on the exact same day!

I realized when putting this post together that I’ve been lucky enough to work with Jessica and Bryce since their fall engagement session in 2018. I captured their wedding in June of 2019, and not too long after that, their ever after session. It’s so cool to be able to photograph their most important moments – especially this one.

It was such an honour to be welcomed into their home to capture this precious stage in their lives. I hope you enjoy looking at a few of my favourite images from their in-home newborn session.

Pre-Wedding Tips

Before the Big Day: 

  • Photography Timeline: You can expect me to reach out about one month before the big day so that we can finalize all details and I can put together a photography timeline. I encourage you to share this timeline with other vendors and your wedding party to ensure everyone prepared, knows what to expect, and can help keep things on track.
  • Family Photo List: I recommend jotting down a quick list of the family groupings you’d like photographed during family photo time. Share this list with me and make sure the people included in the list know that they must stay close and be ready for family photos directly following the ceremony. That way, we can ensure everyone is accounted for and all the groupings you’d like captured are covered.
  • Ask your florist if they can send over any clippings they’d normally toss in the trash when preparing your flowers. A leaf, a small sprig of greenery or a petal from a flower looks great in a detail shot! 

The Morning of Your Wedding Day:

  • Please set aside/ point out any details you’d like documented (ie: cufflinks, ties, shoes, rings, invitations, jewelry, flowers). Everything in one central location is usually easiest. 
  • If you have gifts for your groomsmen, bridesmaids, your parents etc. feel free to save them for after you’re dressed. This makes for good photos!
  • The largest room with the most natural light should be kept neat and tidy as that’s where we’ll photograph you getting ready. If you’re getting ready in a hotel room, I’d recommend tucking everyone’s bags into the bathroom, taking out only what you need/want in the background of your photos. 
  • I strive for real, authentic photos. Unless instructed otherwise, simply pretend I’m not there and carry about your conversations and actions as per usual. I’ll let you know when I need something from you.
  • Suits: Please ensure you and your party have your dress pants and shirts on before I get there. Save the rest of your outfit for after I arrive. I’ll want candids of you getting ready and detail shots of your ties, cufflinks etc. If you don’t know how to put a boutonniere on, don’t worry – I’m happy to help. I’ll even make sure it looks as though you did it all on your own for the photos. ;)
  • Dresses: Please do not put your dress or jewelry on before my arrival. Same as above, I’d like to capture all the details that make up your outfit beforehand, if possible.
  • Check yourself and your long-haired friends for hair elastics around your wrists.
  • Pack snacks and water in a cooler to place in the vehicles you’ll be using to drive to photos – you’ll need it!
  • Finally, don’t be afraid to relax, laugh a lot and have so much fun!

Sunflower Mini Sessions

When my friends at Puddleford Tree Farm told me they were growing a field of sunflowers on their farm, I couldn’t resist booking some sweet Sunflower Mini-Sessions. The weather was so rainy and stormy leading up to the day of the photoshoot that we were scared we’d miss out on all the beauty this field had to offer, but they held on just long enough for us to frolic through the flowers! Thanks to everyone who came out. Hopefully we can do it again next year!
