At the very end of the evening, the whole sky turned orange. Orange crush orange, and I’ve never quite seen anything like it since. You can see the colour cast here in Amy’s face. Pretty rad!

Sarah + Shawn | Downtown St. John’s Wedding

I’ve been busy.

I know everyone says that, but I seriously have been flat out. I also kinda got married to the most wicked man alive. More on that later.

Back in June, Sarah & Shawn decided that they liked each other a whole bunch and should celebrate that fact by getting married and doing an awesome job at it.

They invited me along for the ride, it was DEADLY! (For those non-newfs Deadly = Awesome, amazing, wicked, A+)

Dies for a drop of Fred’s Records on Duckworth, they’re my go to for Vinyl purchases and are close to my heart as it was our engagement location! Shawn and Sarah are MASSIVE music lovers, as you may have seen from his CD collection earlier.

It’s incredible what a few sets of lights can do to bring down a usually high and dark ceiling here at the Fluvarium, such a beautiful final touch by Sarah & Shawn!

Holly + Jen | Vintage Lester’s Farm Wedding | Newfoundland

I’m so happy that Holly and Jen’s wedding was one of the first of the seasons, because I was absolutely too excited to wait any longer to shoot this wedding; and these girls have STYLE! What’s better than one bride? Two! What’s better than a first look before a ceremony? This entire day was perfection, straight from a book on beautiful love!

The Leadise Manor was such a beautiful location for the girls to get ready in, and were so gracious in letting us take a few shots around the property.

It was a drizzly day, so just like the proper Newfoundlanders – they had their rubber boots handy!

Piatto was so wonderful for letting us book the enoceta as a get away from the rain.

This ladder was made by Jen’s father with love!

Needing a snack, and loving the vibe – we stopped into Relish Gourmet Burger here in St. John’s for a few fries!

A DIY wedding true to the heart!

More of the girls handy work below!

All baked with love ūüôā

I love love Lester’s farm as a location for your wedding ceremony and reception, outdoors or indoors – they aim to please!


Melissa + Matt | Newfoundland Winter Vintage Chic Wedding

I’m really this behind, please don’t judge me. I just can’t go on blogging and not share how beautiful my winter couples were!!!

Melissa and Matt were married two days before Christmas Eve, on a perfect crisp winter day. They were stylish, fun and had a old hollywood style throughout the wedding. All of which was complemented by the fact they’re both lovely people, inside and out!

Catch Up | Newfoundland Portrait Photography

I’ve really fallen behind on blogging, there’s no one to blame but myself.

Things I did on my brief blogging hiatus:

  • Took thousands of photos: musicians, babies, weddings… oh my!
  • Started practicing yoga
  • Read so many books
  • Covered¬†Canadian Music Week¬†

but most of my time was spent…

  • Planning and crafting all the DIY factors for my offbeat little wedding. (It’s more work than you think, but it will be worth it!)

So to make up for the lack of photos, the next few blogs will be a potpourri of portraits.

 

 

Steve & Marie decided to get engaged and be mind blowingly awesome at the same time.

Victoria + Darryl | Newfoundland Vintage Engagement

Victoria has STYLE. She has VISION! If make the same magic happen, as we did on her and Darryl’s engagement shoot, on their wedding day – we’ll be laughing. Despite getting caught in rain shower, this shoot was just perfect from start to finish.

Kendra + Gary | Rainy Day Downtown St. John’s Engagement Shoot

I was the most excited when Kendra first emailed me about her central Newfoundland wedding, and when I got a chance to finally meet them and do a few engagement shots early in November – I was beyond stoked!

Since they were visiting town, we had a small window of time to do the shoot… and the rain started to pour half way through the shoot. We decided to take¬†refuge¬†in the Atlantic Place parking garage, to get coverage but still get some St. John’s in the background, when the elevator we were in stopped working we were stuck between floors with nine other people!! A a good 45 minutes we were freed, and kept on shooting!

So this is officially the most interesting and adventure filled engagement shoot, because Kendra and Gary just trucked on through the rain and stuck elevator like it was nobodies business. I’m serious when I say I’m up for anything if you are!!!
