Justin and Christine … engagement session

It is such an honour for me to have past clients refer me to their friends!  Justine and Christine are planning a fantastic wedding this summer and I can’t wait to spend their amazing day with them!

Engagement sessions are an important part of the wedding photography process.  I love getting to know my couples and spending a couple of hours together in an easy, laid-back environment, makes the wedding day go along smoothly!

Tiffani and Brody … engagement

Here is a small glimpse into one of my most favourite engagement sessions from last fall.  Everything came together perfectly, the weather held out and Tiffani and Brody were amazing to photograph.  I can’t wait to see all their wedding plans come together and spend the day with them this summer!

A busy weekend …..

Well I am quite pleased with myself for staying on track for almost 30 days (I just had to count and I’m at day 26 already!) of blogging.  It’s not an easy thing for me (at least it wasn’t too start) writing freaks me out~ always has~ I get anxious and stressed when I have to write something.  It seems overwhelming for me so my defence is to just throw lots of big words in ridiculous run on sentences and hope something sticks!  I am amazed when people can so eloquently and smoothly write, I believe it is a real talent.  Along with struggling to find the words I am a terrible speller, fortunately I am very aware of that and over cautious to the point where I am constantly checking and double checking.

Photography is an ever evolving craft and that is a large part of what I love about it.  There are so many ways to learn, improve, network and better myself and I feel so strongly about being able to grow and continue to offer a better service and product for my clients.  I spent the better part of this weekend watching and interacting a 3-day online seminar, it was amazing and inspiring.  I am excited for the future of my business.

Here is a glimpse of one of my gorgeous wedding albums from one of 2011′s amazing wedding.  It is a handcrafted Italian leather (and by Italian I mean they actually build it in an Italian castle!) with a crystal acrylic cover that makes the front image a piece of artwork on its own.

When I am designing and working with the couple to put together their album, choosing album features that reflect the sprit of their wedding day, I can’t help but imagine the generations that will hold this album and flip through each page.  It is an investment that will be cherished for decades.

David and Sarah ….. wedding

Often with out of town wedding clients we don’t have a chance to meet until the day before and sometimes it’s the day of the wedding.

I was so excited to finally meet Sarah and David the evening before their wedding, we had chatted so much before that I felt like we knew eachother and I couldn’t have been more right, their wedding felt like spending the day with old friends!

I was thrilled that they chose to have a private moment in the “first look”, it really is an amazing opportunity for the bride and groom to see each other secretly before the ceremony.

I was very honoured to be invited to capture this amazing day, I love the roller coaster of emotions a wedding brings.

and the race is on….

…till Christmas that is, I can’t believe it!

It’s been too long since I’ve blogged and WAY too long since I’ve blogged regularly.

I was just thinking this morning how similar it is to when I haven’t connected with an old friend for awhile~ you know a quick call just won’t cut it (it’s going to be a good hour… or three) and it is so hard in this crazy life to find an quiet hour where you can really have a good gabfest.  I am terrible for putting things off until I feel that it’s the perfect time, setting, temperature, astrological allingment… you get the picture.  When really if you (and by “you” I mean “me”) just did it, so much time worring, stressing, thinking, remembering wouldn’t be wasted!

So here I am December 4th, and I’ve already figured out my New Years Resolution.  I will not procrastinate :)

So on another note I’m super excited to share that I’ve been working on a new website and it’s definitely coming together.  I am hoping to have it ready to launch early in the New Year.  I’ve been working with an amazing design team, we have thought up some great ideas and I can’t wait to share!

So I can’t write a blog post without a couple photos, and I have a backload of super fantastic sessions from this fall.  I know I’m jumping the gun a little but I am thrilled to share a few photos from my last wedding of the year and what I’ve been working on most recently.

It was spectacular in every way and I was so honoured to be able to have a small part in the day.  Here are just a few and I promise I will blog the entire day soon.
