On Saturday we had the perfect day for Stephanie and Kyle’s outdoor wedding at Stanley’s Olde Maple Lane Farm. Family and friends gathered together to celebrate the love these two share and there were many, many happy tears throughout the day!
I love doing really creative ring shots, and the reception decor at the venue proved to be such a great inspiration for their shot.
My awesome assistant, Nicole, snapped a fun behind the scenes shot of me setting everything up for the above ring shot. I am pretty much a photo-jedi
You know I love shoes and Steph’s shoes did not disappoint!!
Both of Stephanie’s grandparents have passed away, but they were able to include them in their wedding with these lockets tied to her bouquet. The lace you can see wrapped around the flowers is from Steph’s Mom’s wedding dress. I just love how much meaning is infused into this bouquet.
Stephanie and Kyle’s wedding party was a blast and we had a great time photographing them.
Love. Beautiful light, beautiful moment.
Yesterday evening I photographed the sweetest little girl doing the things she loves best: playing in the park, hanging out with Mommy and Daddy, and taking apart Mom’s makeup bag.
I remember doing this when I was little – so much fun! She wouldn’t stop giggling doing this, running away and doing it again. So cute!
Swinging is the best!
Sophie’s parents say she’s a serious little girl and we made sure to capture that side of her too. What a sweetie!
Stephanie and Kyle love walking their dog, Baldur, at Conroy Pit in the fall because of how beautiful it is when the leaves change colours so it made sense that we had their engagement session there!
These two love-birds are actually getting married tomorrow and I can’t wait!!!!
Jenn and Kevin’s elegant wedding was reflected in their wedding products with beautiful fall colours and subtle patterns.
