Kelli & Mike - Now Sapphire, Mexico Destination Wedding

This wedding culminated an amazing week spent with an amazing group. Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun is a majestic resort destination and is one of my top favourites! It felt like the best venue for this outdoor-loving couple.

Every momentous occasion in their relationship happened around nature. Mike proposed on top of Grotto Mountain in Canmore, while Kelli took him hiking in Snyder’s Flats in Bloomingdale for their first date. I know this is just the start of their married life, but with the beach as the background, it looked like a fairytale ending to their feel-good love story worthy of a full feature film.

They are one of the most down-to-earth and sweetest couples. If there was a name for the opposite of a bridezilla, Kelli would fit the role. Completely unbothered by any little stress that’s common at weddings, she smiled through it all.

Who could mind tiny mishaps when the weather was perfectly balmy? It was sunny with just the right amount of seaside breeze. Though grey clouds started to show after the ceremony and threatened a very last-minute change of reception since theirs was held outdoors, this couple had pure luck! Right above us we could hear the loud rumbles rolling in, but not a single drop of rain.

We ended up with the perfect orange sunset and they had their first dance while the sky changed colours in the background. I don’t think I will ever get to photograph another first dance under the most vibrant sunset again.

Two weeks after the wedding, these newlyweds went off to their new adventure. They moved from Ontario to British Colombia with their fur babies. Thank you both again for having me there to celebrate and photograph your beautiful wedding! Wishing you lots of love and happiness and hoping you have an amazing time living out your life in beautiful BC.

Steph & Justin - Distillery District Toronto Wedding

Steph & Justin - Distillery District Toronto Wedding

Steph and Justins wedding took place at the distillery district, in the heart of Toronto. We were worried about it raining but mother nature blessed us with gorgeous lighting and the sun came out just in time for their ceremony.

Their first look took place just outside where they got ready, at the beautiful One King West Hotel. We immediately went over to the Distillery District for our photo session. A lot of my weddings take place in private venues that usually have some sort of greenery around but this was a wonderful change for me. I'm a city girl at heart, so to be able to capture this incredible day and incorporate the big city was a dream.

Steph and Justin gave us plenty of time for photos prior to the ceremony which allowed us to explore what the district had to offer... and I must say, some of my favorite images I have ever taken were with these two. Archeo Trattoria was an amazing venue. Beautiful grounds for city photos and both the ceremony and reception space were stunning. Not to mention the food was delicious!

I'd also like to add a fun fact: Steph & Justin know the band of the song that they used for their first dance "And then some (acoustic) - Arkells" which they kindly allowed us to use for their highlight video. 

A huge thank you to my amazing second shooter Ally Allison, the day would have not been the same without you! Congratulations again Steph and Justin! It was an absolute pleasure to photograph your incredible day!

Cassie & Chris - Huntington Beach California Wedding

Cassie & Chris - Huntington Beach California Wedding

I met Chris and Cassie last year in Mexico, at Chris’ sisters destination wedding and immediately knew they were my type of people! I was so excited when Cassie not only asked me to be their photographer but told me we were going to California! I couldn’t pack my bags quick enough! California has a special place in my heart, it’s probably one of my favourite places to travel to.

Both Chris’ family and Cassie’s “Cali” family were incredibly welcoming! They instantly made me feel as though I was there as a part of the family and not just their photographer. I had such an amazing week with these people, lots of laughs and the best memories. Thank you to this beautiful couple and their wonderful people for a time I’ll never forget! This wedding was done solely by myself, video and photography. Check out the highlight film at the bottom of this blog!
