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.
I couldn’t have painted better light on Nick and Lorleanne’s wedding day, the over cast greys brought out the colors so vidily. Through the drizzle, her beautiful smile lit up Nick’s face during their ceremony – which included a beautiful colourful hand fasting ceremony.
Their love has brought them two rambunctious little boys – who nearly stole the show from their parents. These two were up for anything, and snuck away from their reception in the Bowering Bungalow for a few photos in the park just as the sun was setting.
The best light in the summer is usually the few hours before the sun sets, and that precious time minutes after it goes below the horizon… it’s hard to capture that on a wedding day, but if you time it just right…
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’s hair was stunning, I love the wild nature to it – and it stayed perfect throughout the day!
Heather’s niece, Jane, had the best room – naturally I loved the color!
Managed to catch the ferry! This was just outside Atlantica, where they had their engagement supper and where they were going to be staying that evening. Stunning area, especially in evening light.
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.
Band name tables!! Custom Jones bottles!
Shane and I have been friends going on nine years now, so I was extremely excited when he and Rita asked me to shoot their wedding! I knew 90% of the bridal party from my high school, which meant we were all extremely comfortable with each other – never a good thing 😉 Rita had the two most beautiful flower girls in the world, her daughter Madison and Shane’s niece Taylor, and I think I might have gone over board on taking pictures of these two gorgeous girls! Rita was stunning, shane looked all grown up and handsome… which is a deadly combination for fantastic photos! Congrats you to you both, and best wishes on the new little one on the way! 🙂
Stunning flowers and jewlery, the bracelet was a gift from Shane.
Shane’s brother Justin and his wife, Krista, sure know how to make cute babies, those cheeks!!!
Madison definately has her mom’s eyes, absolutely gorgeous.
The boys rolled up in this beast, Shane’s brother’s truck.
Rita was glowing the entire day, look at her here:
Totally my creeper shot.
