MELISSA + ERICH

If I didn't think that Melissa was truly one of the sweetest people on earth, I certainly do now! It was plain to see that not just from my perspective, but from those who know her well - she impresses upon people her joy and happiness for everything around her. And she loves Erich - which even if he wasn't a truly amazing human (which he is), that would be enough to say a lot about him! He's serious and doesn't always say much, but when he does - listen. And although "sweet" isn't the first word that comes to mind when I'm looking for descriptors for Erich - that's all I can see when he looks at her. She's everything to him + him to her. It's pretty obvious that they would do anything for one another and in each other they have found their forever. They picked a day in February to get married and it was perfect.

VERONICA + FAB

This little family has my heart - I adore the way V+F dote on little I. She is a little firecracker and reminds me so much of my own strong little girl. They are adoring, sweet, kind and so very loving!

At long last, they had an amazing wedding day full of love, family support and incredible style and details. Malvina of Fabulous Occasions never fails to impress with her impeccable taste and design. I am so thankful to her for introducing all of us. It's been incredible getting to know this little family leading up to and beyond their day.

THE BRIDAL PARTY

Lets chat about your bridal party! I know from experience that all brides want their closest friends to have an AMAZING time during their big day and we will make sure that happens! Bridal party portraits should be a ton of FUN!

If you and your groom are sharing a first look, your bridal party will join us right after we capture images of the two of you sharing your moment together. If bridal party portraits are happening after the ceremony, we’ll try to get the group photos done as soon as possible so your bridal party can be free to mingle at cocktail hour if they wish! If there are flower girls and ring bearers involved, we find it easiest to include them in a bridal party group shot right after the ceremony or during bridal portraits taken after the first look.

Be sure your groomsmen arrive with boutonnieres and your bridesmaids arrive with bouquets!

When it comes time to select bridal party attire, my biggest piece of advice would be to shop around. Bridal boutiques will always have options but we have seen bridesmaids wear amazing dresses from everyday stores such as Anthropologie, Aritzia, JCrew, and Nordstrom. Also, if you come across a sale, it can actually be more economical for the guys to buy suits rather than spend the money to rent one just for one day!

It always looks more comfortable and natural when bridesmaids wear a dress that is complimentary to their individual shape. You can still have a cohesive look through colour selection. For the guys, one of the biggest oversights we see if when the shoe/belt colour is left to the individual to decide. It’s best that you choose whether the guys will all wear brown/black or other accents.

ELEGANT WEDDING MAGAZINE SUMMER 2017

Well, this is sort of a big one for us. We made the cover! We are absolutely thrilled to share our latest published creative editorial with Laura and Co Events. It was not only amazing to work with all of the amazing vendors below and with Elegant Wedding Magazine once again, but making the cover of this incredible magazine is both flattering and rewarding. As fun as these editorials are, they are a lot of hard work and dedication from everyone involved. I'm so happy that we can all share in this honour together. Cheers to another great wedding season!

TRACY + JASON

One of the most rewarding parts of being a wedding photographer is getting to know families on one of their most memorable and important days. It's a learning experience the whole day through. From start to end if you pay attention to the tones of voice, the body language, the conversations - you can get to know so much about the dynamics of family and of the love and respect therein. I think it makes us as photographers grow and create in a whole new kind of way. A more thoughtful, loving and giving way. Documenting each day with individuality and care for the families and the relationships who will be glad for real images from a day that will forever be engrained in their hearts.
