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.

Aimee + Chris :: Signal Hill Engagement – August 4th, 2012

Aimee and Chris contacted me initially for photography on their wedding day, next August. Since they were home visiting, this might be the only chance we had to grab their engagement photos – so we squeezed in a quick shoot on Signal Hill one beautiful evening as the sun set over St. John’s Harbour.

Love everything about this shoot, the time of day, the lighting – and the carefree love these two share. Can’t wait until the wedding ❤

AJ + Deanne :: Post-Wedding Chinese Lantern Adventure

The night of their wedding, it started to rain – so our plan of going to Petty Harbour with Chinese Lanterns was dashed. The next night was stunning, and we returned to Fort Amherst for a few more shots.

AJ + Deanne :: Stylish Retro St. John’s, Newfoundland Downtown Wedding – July 31st, 2012

To say I was counting down the days until AJ and Deanne tied the knot, is an understatement.

The moment Deanne walked into our initial consultation, I knew she was my kind of bride. Her and AJ wanted a fun, relaxed and awesome day of adventures, celebration and did I mention FUN? The week leading up to their wedding I went on a hunt for all the things that they love that couldn’t make the plane ride from Alberta.

On a Tuesday on the last week of July in 2012, this is how AJ and Deanne celebrated their love and marriage.

Johnny + Heather :: July 23, 2011

I’ve known Johnny for as long as I can remember, back when he had long hair flowing down his back. His family and mine have been intertwined since as long as I have lived in this province, through so many different routes. I was more than happy to be a part of his marriage to the beautiful Heather, whose love of music is matched perfectly with Johnny’s. Their entire wedding centered around their careers, life long obsession and love – music. It was a wedding aimed straight at my heart.

The day was more than beautiful, as we reached our final location Fort Amherst we were greeted by the end of a rainbow, and completely surrounded by fog. This wasn’t your a-typical grey fog you see everywhere, this was St. John’s fog – which had the sun BLASTING behind it.. giving the most softest, dreamy light you could ever imagine. It was at that moment their wedding felt like we were living a dream.

I wanted Johnny and the guys to be comfortable in front of the camera, so they broke out the instruments and as you can see… it worked.

Heather changed into something a little more comfortable to make the hike in, so by this time the three of us were in chucks.

There was no pot of gold at the end of this rainbow – but a rockin’ bride and groom were.

Melanie’s Epic Grad Session

Apparently girls named Melanie from around the bay are not only beautiful, but both have managed to make me jealous of how great their grad photos came out as compared to mine. Melanie and her family spent the day exploring what St. John’s had to offer and creating epic grad portraits. When she agreed to hop the fence down to Fort Amherst, I knew she’d be my kinda girl 😉

Melanie’s a skilled dancer, is from what I gathered in LA right now with stars from So You Think You Can Dance and then is back home to begin her training to be a dance teacher! Congrats on graduating, have fun in LA Melanie – and maybe see you soon for those dance photos? Enjoy everyone!

Dean & Trudy October 10th!

Could I have asked for a more perfect couple? We met over wine and I was given free reign over locations for their wedding – both being extremely laid back and cool I knew Fort Amherst was the place to take these two. After a beautiful civil ceremony performed by the Mayor of St. John’s, we hopped in the Mustang (which Trudy surprised Dean with the morning of the wedding, not for keeps… but to ride around in!) and the Cadillac and headed to take over downtown St. John’s! Brides and Grooms take note on how amazing your photos can be if you just don’t worry about the dress, don’t stress about the rain and practice your breaking and entering skills.

Thanks for the FANTASTIC day Dean & Trudy! 🙂

Dean & Trudy

These next two shots are my favorite from my wedding seasons so far!
