Kimberly + Leo | Traditional Inspired Petty Harbour Newfoundland Wedding

They talked about the wedding, six months in advance.
Some said it was foolishness, others said romance.
They bought a little boat and named it Maggie for her Mom.
They shed a tear when they christened her, for Maggie had passed on.
The boat would be a symbol of something old and something new.
It would join them both together, when Kimberly said “I do”.

Every wedding I shoot is unique, stunning and memorable in it’s own way but Kim and Leo’s wedding was something straight out of a story book. A fairytale in it’s own right, a Newfoundland fairytale… involving two people’s love for each other, the cold north atlantic and our beautiful province.

She sailed up to the stage in the make and break
His heart, no longer would have to ache
The band played jigs and reels, by the sea
no one sang “Oh Promise Me”
Kimberly made a lovely bride
She smiled with Leo by her side
The bridesmaids all wore rubber boots
The men wore straps instead of suits
Some folks snickered, others shed a tear or two
But everyone remembers when Kimberly & Leo said “I do”

She is the symbol of another Day
The Island Rooms is where they wed
Two hearts became one on the stage head.

During the ceremony, Kimberly’s mothers very best friends (and extremely eccentric women) came to have a shot of Lambs to christen their little boat named Maggie.

The Navigators were the tunes, and really set the mood for the party. This beautiful spot, Island Rooms of Petty Harbour will eventually become a place to teach our future about the past. From cod fishing, filleting and cooking – and all the household chores in between, Kim and Leo hope to set up a educational, fun and entertaining location to help keep the past in our future!Kimberly & Leo

The beer was wheeled in barrows, the dinner fish and chips
People watched from everywhere, from stage and wharf and cliff
The Lambs was poured and by half past eight
Not even the band could navigate.
There are some that can’t remember the rest of the night, it’s true
But everyone remembers when Kimberly & Leo said “I do”

Jon + Rhonda | Fort Amherst Elopement | St. John’s, Newfoundland

Sometimes a big festival wedding and celebration with you being the center of attention for three hundred people isn’t everyones cup of tea. Jon and Rhonda had never been to Newfoundland together, but thought it would be the most perfect location for them to escape and take the plunge. They had decided with the help of their close friends, they were going to elope on this beautiful rock of ours. I offered up a few locations for a ceremony location, and the moment they saw Fort Amherst they thought ‘Why not get married in old fort ruins on the side of a cliff?’ and it was done.

A few weeks before the wedding, Jon’s mother called me to try and hook up something unique and lovely for the couple on their wedding day. She wanted Newfoundland and she wanted over the top – so we settled on a surprise Newfoundland dog visit! Danny surprised them on their walk down from Fort Amherst, with a little note from Mom.

Lauren + Jeff | Offbeat St. John’s Lester’s Farm Wedding

Jeff stole her heart when she was barely in Junior High, Lauren’s the salt to his pepper. Both of them have super awesome outlooks on life, and are some of the raddest stylish people around.

Another laid back couple, who went with the flow and really enjoyed their wedding day. It’s really all about enjoying the day, not for what it’s “supposed to be” but for what it is.  I’m just along for the ride.

Lauren’s talented mother made her wedding dress with the help of a friend, sometimes a bridal salon isn’t the answer… especially if your mother is this wicked!

This image remains to be one of my favorite images from a wedding I’ve ever shot. I’ve never seen a prouder father as Lauren walked down the stairs. He loved his family and especially his little girl as much as man could physically love and he was not afraid to let the world know.

At the time of the wedding Lauren’s grandfather was in the hospital and we took time from portraits to stop and visit him, his eyes lit up like diamonds when Lauren and Jeff walked in the room.

Fogtown let us take over for a bit, 90% of my dude friends get their cut and shave here. So many handsome men roaming St. John’s thanks to the great guys here!

Victoria + Darryl | Strawberry Hill Rustic Newfoundland Wedding

We’re waiting out a giant storm here in Newfoundland at the moment, so I’m going back to a super bright, warm and romantic day in July, starring Victoria and Darryl. I would love to clone Victoria, because that girl just GOT me. It wasn’t because she shared the same wedding venue, or that her style was so similar to mine but because she understood that to get those “pinterest worthy” shots; sometimes you need to make tiny sacrifices… like darting out in the middle of supper for a few sun drenched shots.

Daryl and Victoria were both so carefree, relaxed and fun to be around that we ended up shooting way into the night. I know it’s not possible for every bride to think about photos in every aspect of planning, but it seems some how Victoria did. From the table decor, to the willingness to go anywhere for the right shot or light, to giving me the free will to capture the wedding day as it was.

I always joke I’m an extended part of the bridal party, because I’m usually with you even more than your maids; and sometimes the Groom on your wedding day! It’s important to feel comfortable and relaxed, just like I’m one of the crowd; so that the shots can be as natural and candid as possible.

Of course I’ll give direction where direction is needed, but I really want you to be yourself! Your wacky, silly, offbeat, fun, ridiculous own self!

I ran up, between courses and whispered into Victoria’s ear: “the sun is setting” her and Darryl pushed back their chairs and dashed out of the tent with me. Sometimes, you gotta let your guests drink that extra glass of wine, between courses so you can get just another minute alone together. Much sun. Very pretty.
