Katherine and Jamal, June 30th, 2018

A lot has to be said about this amazing couple. They are some of the nicest people I have ever met in my entire life- and their wedding showed just how much love people have for these two… Whether it be Jamal’s constant commitment to helping others, or Katherines long time friendships, this couple is throughly loved through and through by everyone that knows them. It was an amazing day to celebrate them- and I was honoured to be a part of it.

The two ceremonies flowed wonderfully into one another- and I was able to be a part of both. The african ceremony was short and sweet, while the traditional ceremony was beautiful (THAT DRESS THOUGH) and almost made you forget about the 45 degree weather.

This couple is a forever couple- you can just tell. They are so loving and caring towards one another, and the coming together of the two families was an amazing thing to witness.

Thanks again Katherine and Jamal, for having me there to celebrate your wedding day- it was awesome! katherineandjamal-2katherineandjamal-4katherineandjamal-5katherineandjamal-10katherineandjamal-12katherineandjamal-15katherineandjamal-17katherineandjamal-21katherineandjamal-25katherineandjamal-26katherineandjamal-27katherineandjamal-31katherineandjamal-37katherineandjamal-42katherineandjamal-46katherineandjamal-47katherineandjamal-50katherineandjamal-52katherineandjamal-56katherineandjamal-59katherineandjamal-62katherineandjamal-64katherineandjamal-65katherineandjamal-68katherineandjamal-70katherineandjamal-73katherineandjamal-77katherineandjamal-80katherineandjamal-86katherineandjamal-90katherineandjamal-93katherineandjamal-97katherineandjamal-102katherineandjamal-104katherineandjamal-105katherineandjamal-109katherineandjamal-119katherineandjamal-124katherineandjamal-127katherineandjamal-130katherineandjamal-132katherineandjamal-136katherineandjamal-137katherineandjamal-139katherineandjamal-141katherineandjamal-143katherineandjamal-145katherineandjamal-148katherineandjamal-152katherineandjamal-154katherineandjamal-156katherineandjamal-158katherineandjamal-160katherineandjamal-162katherineandjamal-166katherineandjamal-167katherineandjamal-169katherineandjamal-170katherineandjamal-171katherineandjamal-173katherineandjamal-178katherineandjamal-179katherineandjamal-180katherineandjamal-181katherineandjamal-183katherineandjamal-185katherineandjamal-187katherineandjamal-191katherineandjamal-193katherineandjamal-196katherineandjamal-198katherineandjamal-199katherineandjamal-200katherineandjamal-202katherineandjamal-203katherineandjamal-206katherineandjamal-208katherineandjamal-211katherineandjamal-214katherineandjamal-215katherineandjamal-216katherineandjamal-217katherineandjamal-220katherineandjamal-224katherineandjamal-228katherineandjamal-231katherineandjamal-239katherineandjamal-243katherineandjamal-248katherineandjamal-254katherineandjamal-256katherineandjamal-258katherineandjamal-263katherineandjamal-264katherineandjamal-265katherineandjamal-268katherineandjamal-270katherineandjamal-275katherineandjamal-278katherineandjamal-279katherineandjamal-282katherineandjamal-284katherineandjamal-290katherineandjamal-291katherineandjamal-293katherineandjamal-296katherineandjamal-297katherineandjamal-300katherineandjamal-301katherineandjamal-303katherineandjamal-307katherineandjamal-309katherineandjamal-317katherineandjamal-320katherineandjamal-322katherineandjamal-325katherineandjamal-327katherineandjamal-332katherineandjamal-334katherineandjamal-336katherineandjamal-338katherineandjamal-340katherineandjamal-341katherineandjamal-343katherineandjamal-344katherineandjamal-348katherineandjamal-350katherineandjamal-353katherineandjamal-355katherineandjamal-358katherineandjamal-362katherineandjamal-364katherineandjamal-367katherineandjamal-371katherineandjamal-384katherineandjamal-389katherineandjamal-391katherineandjamal-394katherineandjamal-395katherineandjamal-406katherineandjamal-408katherineandjamal-412katherineandjamal-414katherineandjamal-425katherineandjamal-431katherineandjamal-433katherineandjamal-436katherineandjamal-438katherineandjamal-440katherineandjamal-446katherineandjamal-447katherineandjamal-454katherineandjamal-458katherineandjamal-459katherineandjamal-460katherineandjamal-463katherineandjamal-465katherineandjamal-468katherineandjamal-469katherineandjamal-470katherineandjamal-471katherineandjamal-475katherineandjamal-479katherineandjamal-480katherineandjamal-483katherineandjamal-490katherineandjamal-492katherineandjamal-494katherineandjamal-495katherineandjamal-496

Brittany and Chris, June 23rd, 2018

What a perfect wedding to start off my 2018 wedding season. The weather was amazing for photography (overcast, and mild) and the bride and groom were both stunning looking individuals who made my job easy!

The bridal party was fun and entertaining all night- and I did know a few guests who attended the wedding so it was nice to mingle and chat with people throughout the day. I also got to hang out with the videographer, who was a ton of fun.

Chris and Brittany started their perfect day off with a first look. Brittany had lots of time to prepare for this as she had done a first look beforehand with her father, and her bridal party- which was so cute I thought my heart was going to explode.

Chris waited out on the pier at Cobble Beach for his future Mrs. Rier to come walking down and pat him on the shoulder…his reaction was perfectly sweet and reminded me of why I enjoy first looks so much. They embraced and complimented each other while joking around about the excitement that was to come. You can spot the love between these two immediately, and I felt lucky to chosen to capture such a milestone in their lives.

The ceremony was perfectly perfect and had a few good laughs that reminded all of us why this couple is so great together. Cocktail hour commenced and the bridal party and I headed down to the lighthouse and water to capture some pictures of everyone.

Dinner was delicious and the Cobble Beach staff was amazing, as always. The best man entertained everyone at dinner while the MC kept him in line (after all, he did have several shots before dinner was even served!)

I captured a wonderful first dance between the newly married couple as well as their dances with their Mother and Father, then I let the party commence…after all, what happens at the after party- stays at the after party, right?

Thanks again Brittany and Chris, and congratulations on your beautiful marriage. I can’t wait to see your family grow and your many years of happiness ahead.

Carina

Krystal and Dave- September 23, 2017

Krystal and Dave have been amazingly patient while I’m amongst the midst of my never ending morning sickness, and the busiest fall/christmas season I’ve had to date. I’m so thankful for the amazing clients and people I get to meet each and every year.

I’m not sure if Krystal and Daves wedding was the hottest day of the summer, but it was close. The decor and linens done by Jenny and the team at Saugeen Golf course, was beautiful and I couldn’t capture enough images of everything that was going on. The day was beyond perfect. The girls looked stunning, and the men adapted their outfits to accommodate the weather we were so fortunate (looking back) to have.

The ceremony was nothing short of sweet with a bit of hilarity, as Dave nervously stumbled his vows staring at his beautiful wife to be. Who wouldn’t be nervous!? If you know this couple, the ceremony was perfectly fitting to them, and I enjoyed every minute of it.

Dinner was amazing, and the speeches and twist on “dinner kisses” was unique and very enjoyable- not to mention the strip tease dancing skills of the groom to cap off a hilarious evening.

Thanks again, Mr and Mrs Desjardins, for having me on one of the greatest days of your lives.

Corby and Ben Sovie, 2016

When I first met Corby and Ben a year ago (or should I say re-met) to do their engagement photos, they were pretty carefree and willing to do whatever crazy ideas…except Ben wouldn’t drive fast down a dirt road in his fancy car….so that was kind of annoying…. ahha.

I spent the morning at the venue grabbing shots of the DIY decor Corby created, and as usual was so amazed at the thought and work that goes into a wedding day.

I arrived at Matt’s house where the guys were supposed to be getting ready, but instead, they were mowing down pizza and making fun of bens nose, and all those other things that go on at weddings. But there was still this vibe in the house- that everyone was ready to celebrate, and it was about damn time!

I glanced over to Ben “nervous?” He didn’t even stop for a split second to say “Nope, not at all.” This man knows. He knows who the love of his life is. He knows that every day he will be there for her, love her, protect her and guide her. This is what makes Ben a really great man.

I scattered around grabbing shots of all the guys getting ready, and watching youtube videos on bow ties as they were trying put them on (of course, right?) and grabbed a few shots of them celebrating on the front deck before I scooted over to Ben and Corbys house, where Corby would be already celebrating with her sisters and friends.

I arrived to the fresh scent of flowers, and giggling girls- you could see the excitement in Corbys eyes as she sat in front of the mirror to get her final hair piece set in place. Her bridesmaids were scattering around getting ready for the amazing day they were going to be a part of, and I was trying my best to stay a fly on the wall.

I walked around the house and found little things to snap pictures of, and followed corby outside for some fresh air to express how stunning she looked. She was ready to be Mrs. Sovie, and I was so happy for her!

Back in the house, the girls transformed and were out the door in a flash with me just moments ahead of them to check out the ceremony now that the guests had arrived.

The girls lined up at the side of the barn, Corby accompanied by her father…the bridal party started coming in towards the front of the ceremony. The music played beautifully as Corby made her way up the aisle with all eyes on her, of course. Stunning is not even the best word to describe how beautiful Corby looked. Her soul poured out of her eyes that day, and she was in her element, with her best friend at her side.

The ceremony was short, and sweet, and full of laughs and tears, and was everything these two wanted on their perfect day.

Pictures took place shortly before dinner in an overgrown apple orchard, and the rain broke long enough to grab hundreds of beautiful shots. I was so happy!  Life, and love is GOOD.

Thank you so much for having me B & C.
I wouldn’t of wanted to be anywhere else, on such a beautiful day. corbyandben-2corbyandben-3corbyandben-4corbyandben-5corbyandben-6corbyandben-7corbyandben-8corbyandben-9corbyandben-10corbyandben-11corbyandben-12corbyandben-13corbyandben-14corbyandben-15corbyandben-16corbyandben-17corbyandben-18corbyandben-19corbyandben-20corbyandben-21corbyandben-22corbyandben-23corbyandben-24corbyandben-26corbyandben-27corbyandben-28corbyandben-29corbyandben-30corbyandben-31corbyandben-32corbyandben-33corbyandben-34corbyandben-35corbyandben-36corbyandben-37corbyandben-38corbyandben-39corbyandben-40corbyandben-41corbyandben-42corbyandben-43corbyandben-44corbyandben-45corbyandben-46corbyandben-47corbyandben-48corbyandben-49corbyandben-50corbyandben-51corbyandben-52corbyandben-53corbyandben-54corbyandben-55corbyandben-56corbyandben-57corbyandben-58corbyandben-59corbyandben-60corbyandben-61corbyandben-62corbyandben-63corbyandben-64corbyandben-66corbyandben-67corbyandben-68corbyandben-69corbyandben-70corbyandben-71corbyandben-72corbyandben-73corbyandben-74corbyandben-75corbyandben-76corbyandben-77corbyandben-78corbyandben-79corbyandben-80corbyandben-82corbyandben-83corbyandben-84
