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.
There are few days in Newfoundland that can be called real scorchers, Kerilyn and Blaine happened to be married on one of those fiery days. In what may be the most vibrant and colorful wedding I’ve photographed, these two adorable lovebirds had a day full of laughter, adventure and love.
This was awesome.
I was filled with joy when Natasha and Steve asked me to be their wedding photographer, for if someone asked me to name the most beautiful person I know – it’s Natasha. Inside and out.
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.
Another key is to keep your belly happy… don’t be afraid to snack!
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!
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!
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!
