while i have thoroughly enjoyed every stage that our kids go through... there are times that i really miss the early childhood days... i had one of those moments this morning. i opened the back door to let Lola out and, not surprisingly, she took off into the neighbour's yard-i'm lucky theiy're so gracious! i chased her and within seconds their back door flew open and i was greeted by two very happy and spirited, beautiful kids... hudson and sarah came running over to greet
me Lola... if only the dog appreciated their sweet faces as much as i do. i know there may be times that the parents of these little fireballs can't wait for the days that they sleep in, are done teething, and can have adult conversations (although i've spoken with sarah and hudson several times and they are fluent in adult language)...
but for now. enjoy this stage! little marin and her wonderment!
this is where erin and wes married... i didn't know that when i chose the location-how things have changed over the years!
i know where i can find a good assistant! happy shooting hudson!
enjoy the weekend! make a few memories!
she's a good soul. she's the perfect amount of cheeky with enough panache that makes heads turn. she's brave. she's hard working. she knows how to have fun. she embraces life fully and i blame her for my desire to someday live in an old house. i fully expect her to decorate it for me. she's lovely and has a heart of glittery gold. i'm fortunate to call her friend. meet amanda and (paul's) dog indie.
we were thrilled to have been asked to film the whimsical backyard wedding celebration for Adam and Tam... and before you sign off for the day, here's a little teaser!

i'm lucky to hear so many love stories. the story of jamie and nicole is heartwarmingly beautiful.
a few short weeks after i met this couple and they had decided to book with NWP+C i received a phone call... i was saddened to learn that jamie had life threatening medical concerns that would have him recovering most of this past year. as time went on Nicole let me know that he was indeed doing really well, and confirmed that they were keeping their wedding date and were looking forward to a fun and casual dinner celebration with their closest friends and family at the Inn on the Twenty. so thankful that this last year has brought much healing and a wonderful story of recovery because i can't imagine these two without eachother. they were absolutely glowing on their wedding day-that new lease on life glow- and no amount of rain (it was that day in september that it poured morning till night) could keep them from shining!
she started a job waitressing at a restaurant. the restaurant located right beside jamie's building. he never ate there...well, accept for this one time. the only time he'd run into nicole there because it was her first and last shift. that's serendipity.
fast forward to the rainiest day in september... jamie and nicole's wedding day. nicole was giddy with excitement for many reasons-she was marrying the man of her dreams today. she'd also planned a little surprise for jamie. she arranged for her bridesmaids to bring him a gift on the wedding morning-the bike of his dreams! his reaction was so sweet!
the retreat at cave springs winery makes for a great place to stay dry while exchanging vows... and the rustic decor that nicole planned worked perfectly with the venue!
you know how i know that these two are so loved by their friends.... the wedding party smiled throughout the entire afternoon... even from under those umbrellas. love the way the colours pop off the dreary backdrop... and rain just makes everything look so romantic!
the reception was hosted in the wine cellar... and the band...these guys sing with soul!
a perfect celebration for a really really lovely couple! congratulations jamie + nicole!
