Amanda and Andy – sneak peek

2 Nov

Last wedding of the year for me and it was a cute one! Their family and friends were pretty happy to see these two get hitched.  I was over the moon with the opportunity to bring them to Prime for photos! #midweddinggelatodate

Curniss and Chris

27 Oct

It can be common to see a couple tie their interests and tastes into their weddings.  It might be part of their theme – country, modern, classy, or in wedding favours, chosen flowers, etc.

Being a very outdoorsy couple, (you can read about their adventures over at followourfeet.com) Curniss and Chris originally did their ceremony on the Giant, doing a hike in with a couple close friends and someone to record it all.  We got to watch that film at the “official” friends and family ceremony at the Finlandia Hall.

It was a very northwestern Ontario party.  Pinetree Catering’s food truck for dinner, all their flowers were GROWN LOCALLY by a family friend (so beautiful and smelled amazing), the festivities took place downtown Port Arthur, close to our beautiful lake.

So thankful I got to be your photographer, guys!  Congratulations!

Sarah & Mike – wedding preview

20 Oct

Starting with a well-attended ceremony at City Hall, and ending with a classy and fun reception at the Chanterelle, Sarah and Mike’s day was filled to the brim with love.

This was my first time both capturing a ceremony at City Hall and seeing the Chanterelle, so I was extra looking forward to this wedding._DSC4796logosm_DSC4800logosm_DSC4806logosm_DSC4826logosm_DSC4834logosm_DSC4856logosm_DSC4946logosm_DSC4980logosm_DSC5042logosm_DSC5065logosm_DSC5083v3logosm_DSC5119logosm_DSC5131v2logosm_DSC5152v2logosm_DSC5168logosm_DSC5211logosm_DSC5222v2logosm

As this was my first time shooting here, I am including a few of the candid-type shots I typically leave out of sneak peeks because, hey, it just looks so fun!  They had a cocktail-style reception with drinks and charcuterie – the type of party that felt pretty “big city” (but surrounded by everyone you know and love).  Awesome all around._DSC5291logosm

Prepping the OYSTER BAR (have you ever attended a wedding that had an oyster bar??)

Ashley and Jacob

22 Sep

What an awesome and memorable day for Jacob and Ashley.

My day with them started off at El Tres for a “first look”, then off to Waverly to meet with the family and wedding party for pictures, and finally off to Mt Baldy for the rest of the night.

It was such a hilarious day with this awesome couple, plus an amazing crowd including tons of old pals!

Taylar and Keith

6 Sep

So I think I’ve had rain, storms, impending storms at pretty much every wedding this season (even rainbows at two in a row)… but the storm this past Saturday was something else, hah!   We got rained on, hailed on, and lightning practically hit our haystacks.  Anyway, that part just made it extra unforgettable.  Congrats Taylar and Keith!_DSC0138_DSC0141_DSC0145_DSC0149_DSC0150_DSC0170_DSC0182_DSC0192_DSC0199_DSC0204_DSC0243_DSC0262_DSC0264_DSC0313_DSC0440_DSC0542_DSC0570_DSC0575_DSC0594_DSC0604_DSC0605_DSC0609_DSC0618_DSC0635_DSC0649_DSC0688_DSC0751_DSC0760

Meghan & Benjamin’s Wedding – Preview

20 Aug

Meghan and Ben have quite a lengthy love story that stretches back to their youth, making today a big deal.  A much awaited union, after 9 years of dating, college, getting a dream home, two children, they finally tied the knot.

Now I know Ben is a wonderful guy from what Meghan has said, not to mention the best man’s touching speech.. but I have lots of firsthand experience at how lovely Mrs. Meghan is.  We went through the SSW program at Con College together.  She’s a shining diamond.  A loving mother, caring friend, and kind soul.  Knowing how sweet she is makes me all the more happy to see how happy she is.

Now, join me in screaming over these shots from their wedding

Krista & Jeff

14 Aug

There are countless wedding venues to choose from in Thunder Bay, but it’s nice to see the meaningful places couples pick.  Parents of the bride were happy to share their dream property over 20 years in the making.

Krista and Jeff met in 1st year University here at Lakehead.  They now live in Southern Ontario together.  Many family members came from out of town to celebrate this sweet couple, I hope everyone enjoyed their time at Mink Mountain and hope the weather stayed clear!

Congrats K+J!
