I first met Andrea when she was stood in Nadia and Michael’s stunning wedding a few years ago. And let’s just say I was beyond excited when she asked me to photograph her own big day when she got engaged. We sat at Starbucks talking about and envisioning this day. So many ideas spinning in her head (and pinterest board), and I was so excited to see how the wedding day would come together.  A little later, I met Greg at their engagement session, and loved hanging out with them both. We popped champaigne, laughed, and got some beautiful shots as the sun went down.

When the big day finally came, everything came together perfectly. With timeless elegance as the theme throughout the day, Andrea looks absolutely stunning in her Eve of Milady gown .   Cascading orchids, classic roses, hydrangeas displayed everywhere you looked.  After the wedding day, I asked Andrea to give some advice to brides who are still planning their wedding day, and I loved her perspective on the whole experience:

“One thing I learned on the day of my wedding is that some things may not go exactly how you imagined them to be. As little girls we dream about our wedding day and have an image of every detail and how it should be. The reality is that – yes the day is beautiful, but things will be a bit different than you imagined and it’s OK. There were things that completely surpassed my expectations and things that didn’t so much. At the end of the day you have to take in every moment,  and enjoy it with your new husband.”

Oh this day. I knew after Anna and Jake’s incredible engagement session, this wedding would be special in every way. The amount spent on big and little details, huge DIY projects, and thought on how to include loved ones in so many ways blew me away. And when the day came together – it was utterly perfect.

As I watched the day unfold in front of my camera, I loved how open and vulnerable Anna and Jake were with everyone who shared in their day. Every emotion was felt. There was no need to hide anything: joy, bittersweet and happy tears, true happiness. It was a day to fully feel. A day to soak it in. And a day for Anna and Jake to reflect on everything that led them there.

I cried and laughed right along with them. And through it all was so inspired.

Thank you Anna and Jake for choosing me to spend this incredible day with you. Big hugs…

Valerie and Brendan became husband and wife in a beautiful intimate ceremony at Spago this past summer.  Surrounded by those that are dearest to them, it was an evening full of love, happiness, amazing food and families coming together. With romantic florals created by the talented CJH florals and a stunning sweets tabled by Shelby’s Sweet Shoppe. Below are a few favourites from this beautiful evening.

Weddings are full of big moments. The vows, first kiss, fist dances, and many more.  But then there are the little moments that not many notice. When I think of Hannah and Andy’s beautiful wedding day, I remember how they teared up during photos just at the realization that their day was finally happening. And how Andy looked at Hannah with pure adoration and happiness. I will always think back at their wedding day and remember the genuine joy in these small moments they shared.

Hannah and Andy – it was a priveldge to document your special moments. Big and small. I’m forever a fan and can’t wait to follow your adventures and travels as your begin this new chapter as husband and wife. Big hugs…
