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.
Sometimes, he helps her into the dress.
Sometimes, it’s balmy and breezeless during the month of February in Newfoundland.
Sometimes, instead of an officiant – you can have a song.
But you should always, be true to yourselves.
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.
Sometimes you have to wait out the rain. It’s worth it. Love is an adventure, so let’s go on one. 🙂
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!
We worked our magic on this shoot over a year ago. It was a chilly autumn day, the boats were getting ready to come out of the harbour for the winter. I can hear Kelli’s laugh through these photos, through everything these two have rocked. These guys have something special, because they’re something special themselves.
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.
I’m sitting here, typing this remember how wonderfully warm this day was; these two have such great chemistry, I hope their wedding day is just as beautiful.
