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.
If anyone needs lessons on how to have a fun laid back wedding, you should call these two. Enjoying themselves was top priority at the wedding, and I was so happy to be a part of it. We stayed within the confines of Pippy Park and enjoyed a beautiful September day celebrating a wedding that’s been a long time coming.
Lots of fur children to enjoy!
I’m really into positive thinking. We were expecting rain, there was a hurricane days away – but we thought positive thoughts and found ourselves with a beautiful warm day in September.
That said, these two are so beautiful that it could have been raining toads and leeches – and their photos would still be stunning.
I’ve known Adam since High School, I was so thrilled him and his beautiful lady chose me to be a part of their wedding day. We had such a perfect day, I found myself questioning if this was really work when my clients make it THAT easy.
I can still picture Adam with his long curly locks sitting in the music room playing this guitar.
This is Adam’s boat, which is now Danielle’s boat too… and I could have shot with it for hours in this light.
Not hard up for looks.
Don’t these boats make such a beautiful background? I love a good Marina setting.
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.
We waited for the perfect evening, with the perfect light. We waited a while, but we finally found a warm summer evening that fit into everyone’s lives.
Amy and Trevor are married now, and enjoying their honeymoon to the fullest in Europe! Until I get around to their wedding photos.here’s their engagement pictures I’ve been sitting on for a bit.
This wedding made me excited!! I go weak in the knees for vintage inspired shoots, and to have another whole wedding styled and executed as gloriously as this one was? *Sigh* It’d be a dream. I love love love these small DIY weddings, they’re no stress, no long days and 100% fun. There’s usually a lot more time for portraits, and we can get super creative and let loose.
Steve and Allison had all the key elements for an intimate, personal and unique wedding, which was a complete surprise to 90% of their friends and family. From the bright shoes to match the hair piece, and the pocket watch to match the entire ensemble, they had this wedding thing down pat.
This is a sight that was so frequent throughout the day, Steve making Allison giggle uncontrollably.
The owner of the Quidi Vidi Brewery was on the wharf when we visited and invited us to use his sailboat for a few shots. I swooned over every single shot. Thank you good sir!!
This is one of my favorite spots in the city, so much character!
LOVE this light we grabbed on Signal Hill. The blues are so smooth!
Anyone who knows me, knows that me and the Sun have a love-hate relationship. I cringe when someone wants to do a shoot mid-day, and usually suggest another time as that sun just messes with me. I absolutely LOVE the warm sunlight about 2-3 hours before the sun is setting. It’s so inviting, romantic, and makes me feel all fuzzy inside. I actually got a little giddy when Mallory and Justin took me to their friends Cabin in the middle of the woods that was on a little pond and I saw how glorious the sun was shining through the trees and on the pond.
Mallory contacted me a few months ago to do an Engagement session and I’ve been super excited for it ever since, and the day did not let me down. We had a beautiful day exploring Salmon Cove Sands, tresspassing to cute little summer cottages and of course the cabin on the water. The way both of these guys look at each other, made the sun that much warmer that day. Congrats on your engagement Mallory and Justin!!
Isn’t she absolutely stunning?
I could have shot around this little cottage all day.
Justin watched Conrad and I spend a good fifteen minutes in the woods with their rings, and I made sure to tell him along the way the reason for everything I was doing, I enjoy explaining my madness to people sometimes.
And saving the best for last, this is my absolute FAVORITE shot of the day!!
