We were a part of so many shows last year and to be honest, it was too many. We were so worn out by the end and we also weren’t able to take full advantage of them as we found that we were turning away most of the interested couples based on not being available for their wedding date.
So this year, we decided to cut back on the number of shows we did – big time. In the end, we are only doing a couple shows this year and we have tried to pick ones that are pretty different from each other. Our first show was the always fantastic Tie the Knot Wedding Show just this past weekend and I am so glad we kept it on our list.
Once the gorgeous Fall season is done, so is our regular busy season. As we are primarily wedding photographers, our off-season starts up basically when winter starts to show up and we have far fewer weddings. But it is always such a nice treat to be able to wrap up our busy season by giving back and supporting one of the many wonderful charities in the area, Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario, by capturing their annual 3 Wishes Gala.
If you check out our posts on a regular basis you will know that we love supporting Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario and have been fortunate enough to cover several of their events and granted wishes over the last (almost) 2 years. We love each and every one of of their events so much, but the 3 Wishes Gala definitely holds a special place on our calendar each year.
If there is one thing I have learned while covering weddings and events, it is that events like these don’t just plan themselves. There is a lot of time, thought and energy behind that one gorgeous day or night and when it comes to a charity event, it definitely takes an extra special breed of person to be able to pull it off.
We have been so lucky this year to be a part of Make-A-Wish events already: Wine for Wishes, the 4 Four wishes event and of course, Griffin’s wish come true. All three of these were absolute amazing. And being able to capture a wish as definitely one of the highlights of our year, without a doubt.
And just to make sure our year was even more remarkable than it already was thanks to this amazing charity, they asked us to be part of the 10th Annual 3 Wishes Gala!!
