They met at Queen's University and have been together ever since... for over ten years. You can imagine their family doing the happy dance when they announced their engagement and when I met with Simon's mom about photographing their wedding it was evident that they were planning the most perfect day for their kids. And it was perfect... clears skies and all! Top 5 favourite things about this wedding... 1) the sunshine-the last few weddings I have photographed at the Inn on the Twenty had been rainy ones...so I was thrilled to see an outdoor ceremony in the vineyard once again. 2) Kristin's dress was perfectly beautiful... wish i could descrbe it more creatively but the dress was soooo her! 3) the florals created by fleurish were rustic and gorgeous and a lot of them grown here in Niagara... brilliant. 4) being hard core hockey fans... they drank niagara wine from a stanley cup and made their ceremony uniquely their own 5) Simon's mom and Kristin danced to 'here's to you Mrs. Robinson'
All in all a fabulous celebration and we're grateful to have been invited to document the wedding story! Enjoy a few of our favourites from the day...
my beautiful niece celebrating a major milestone. prom! congratulations maddie. xo
'We met in Toronto while Erns was on a 3 month work secondment from South Africa. We met, fell in love, and he left 3 months later.
After Erns went back to South Africa, we kept in touch constantly, even though we didn't think anything would come from it. About 6 months later, we decided enough was enough, and met half way in London. We think of this as our first date. We met in the hotel lobby, and it was like we had never been apart. We went for lunch right away at a cute Italian bistro. We talked like old friends.'
These 'old friends got married on a warm and beautiful summer day last season. Marija and Erns celebrated at Chateau Des Charmes but before their reception they had a 'first look at Centennial Park in Stoney Creek and were then married at their local Serbian Church.
There's too much pretty to squeeze into one blog post so you'll have to visit next week to see their gorgeous ceremony and reception!
i met Amanda in 2010... she was looking for a wedding photographer and what she got was an 'all the important events of my entire life' photographer. we've been there for her engagement photos, the wedding, the maternity and the most recent... the baby. it is such a joy to photograph this woman-she is so full of light and love. she also comes with a pretty handsome life partner...it's hardly work at all! although amanda would argue that anyone who can get paul in front of the camera should be given a lifetime acheivement award. you'll also see a few of pictures of india... she has been at every shoot... and she wasn't about to miss this one either. she hams it up in front of the camera every time i come around... love her!
amanda and paul were about 6 weeks away from meeting their gorgeous little boy when we captured them in their home-what a treasure to have photos of the nursery... of the home thy've made together and the home that is about to change for good.
visit next week and we'll have a few images from baby Jude's newborn lifestyle session! wishing all first time moms a fabulous mother's day weekend! enjoy every sweet moment!
It was a pretty harsh winter for outdoor photos but Tracey, Levi and Caspian braved the cold for a family portrait session at Charles Daly Park. A few of my favourites...
