As I talked about in yesterday’s post where we recapped a bit about our 2020 weddings, and really as everyone already knows because it was like this for the entire world, 2020 was a very different year for the business. And that difference included the blog. As a direct result of there being fewer weddings and family session, there were less blog posts. But for the posts that we did have you guys turned out to view and/or read them – so a huge thank you for that!!Continue reading “Top Posts of 2020”
From the moment the pandemic hit our area and shut down business and weddings, Tanya + Scott knew they wanted to keep their wedding date just as it was. They didn’t want to wait another year to get married even if it meant a tiny elopement. Tanya let me know this right from the first email I sent out all of our clients, letting them know their options with us and all that jazz. And as I watched more and more of our 2020 weddings get postponed to next year, it was a really nice comfort knowing that I would get to work with at least one of our awesome couples before the year was over.
And these two definitely made the day so much fun! Which is particularly nice since this was our last wedding of the year and I do love ending our season with a fun-filled day and a couple I truly adore!Continue reading “Fall Backyard Intimate Wedding: Tanya + Scott”
It was super cold as we drove down the windy, dirt roads after Melanie + Michael’s wedding, but we still had the windows down. Why you might ask? Because I get car sick fairly easily on super winding, bumpy, hill-y roads and there was no other way to describe the route out from their quite remote wedding location.
Don’t get me wrong, it was stunning! So much so in fact, that I didn’t get too bothered on the drive up because I was so distracted by the gorgeous Fall colours. But it was getting dark on the way home, and I was very tired, so the nausea definitely set in and remained for almost the entire drive home. But it was a million per cent worth it to get to work among that beautiful nature, and with this amazingly sweet couple again!Continue reading “Ottawa Valley Fall Country Wedding: Melanie + Michael”
When Dave and I planned our own wedding, we didn’t want our wedding party’s plus ones to be sitting at random tables with people they didn’t know. Neither of us would have enjoyed that experience ourselves so we didn’t want to impose it on anyone else. So, to still have a head table but not make anyone lonely during dinner, we invited all of wedding parties significant others to join us at the head table.
Now it may seem odd to start off someone else’s wedding post with a story of our own wedding, but there’s a point, I promise. You see, it was at this head table on our wedding day that we first met Currie. She had been dating Dan for a little while but had never met our friend group so she wouldn’t have known anyone she sat with. In hindsight, I realize now that she would have been fine as she is the nicest person ever and it is pretty much impossible to not like her, but it’s always nice to be with your person at a big event.
I suppose it is a little weird to have someone at your head table you have never met, but it worked out wonderfully in the end as we have all become great friends … oh and she and Dan got married, so I suppose it worked out for them too 😉Continue reading “Perth Manor Wedding: Currie + Dan”
I remember looking up some sort of wedding photographer membership when I first started my business. It required you to have shot a minimum of 50 weddings with a suggested number of at least 100 weddings. I saw those numbers and thought well that is impossible! There is no way 100 couples will ask me to photograph their wedding. Well guys, despite my pessimism back then, it actually happened! And even better than that, Sarah + Paul got to be couple #100 with their amazing Lord of the Rings themed wedding day!
