I like to think that everyone has a spot (or maybe a couple) in their town/city that is special to them. Maybe a memorable event happened their or just it is a place where they can go and clear their head. My list of places has changed and grown over the years, but Hog’s Back Park will always be close to my heart. And I know it will be special for Samantha + Damjan too as their relationship grew here as they trained for marathons and just generally got to know one another better running through the park’s paths.
Katherine: ‘Can we do a shot in the field? I have always wanted a photo of me and my love running through the field.’
Me: ‘umm…yeah we definitely can!!!!!!’
I absolutely loved when Katherine asked me for this series of photo during her and Mike’s engagement session, she has such great ideas that I loved incorporating into their photos!
There were just so many reasons as to why I was looking so forward to Chantal + Mathieu’s wedding day. The fact that it was a Fall wedding was definitely a good reason to look forward to this one (I love Fall weddings so much!) and of course, because they had opted for a first look which are always so special and touching. I was excited for the overall aesthetic they had planned for their day, and super pumped about getting to work in a brand new venue!! But really, after spending the day with them during their engagement session (and chatting with them during our meetings), I was really just looking forward to getting to hang out with them again since they are both just so awesome!
It was an absolutely stunning wedding day and not because the weather was particularly nice (although the rain did hold off well enough) and not even because of the locations (although they were quite lovely), no it was a stunning wedding day because of the couple themselves. Chantal + Mathieu are just the sweetest, most thoughtful people and because of this, their wedding day was full of beauty, memorable moments and most of all, it was full of love.
A year ago we had the extreme pleasure of capturing one of our dear friends’ wedding day. It was such a heartwarming day and we were so incredibly honoured to have been able to be a part of it.
