The rain didn’t seem like it was going to hold off, I was hopeful.
The wedding in the garden was going to happen.
Love finds a way.
I’m bad at blogging, I’ll be the first to admit it. We’ve shot some rad weddings that are begging to be shared.
I often crave a nap by the ocean after a long drive, and we frequently venture far enough off the highway to make one happen in Port Rexton.
The drive for the nap is worth it though, after the chocolates in Trinity, the Sandwich from Two Whales and of course, the cold one from The Brewery. Lying on the beach, with the cool breeze blowing the taste of salt onto your lips and the rocks, warm from the heat, pressing against your back – you hope the moment never ends.
That’s what shooting this wedding felt like.
Shooting another photographer’s wedding is nothing short of an honor, especially when that photographer is the one and only Aamie Gillam. She’s my soul sister, no doubt.
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.
Rick and Lois finally tied the knot, in a beautiful tiny little ceremony at the Leaside Manor.
Addison and I had a bit of fun grabbing a few photos for her Christmas card to all her fabulous friends.
And adorable Eden celebrated her first Christmas with her super cool and loving parents!
The last week in May an email landed in my inbox, Sheila was eloping on the 9th of June with her fiance Chris – and wanted to know if I was in.
Nothing gets me more excited than hiking up the east coast trail to shoot an epic elope in the morning. Be spontaneous, think outside the box – be you. This is your day, don’t forget it.
