So a little bid of my driving adventures before we get into the real post – not more than 30 minutes before I arrived for Kirsten + Kyle’s engagement session, my car was pretty much in a ditch and needed to be pulled out by the super nice farmer Paul and his tractor. So to say that driving down to Perth was a bit treacherous at times is a little bit of an understatement.
But it was so a million per cent worth it as these two, in this location, with all this gorgeous fresh, falling snow was absolute heaven and so worth the drive!!!
Oh my goodness guys – Shannon + Erin’s wedding was freaking AMAZING!! Honestly, everything about it made me so deliriously happy! And it did so in the windchill-filled, -40 degree, winter weather, it was just that good!
But in case you don’t believe me, you should definitely keep reading because this wedding day just got better and better as the day went along.
I love getting to shoot in the same location during different seasons. It’s almost like getting to photograph there for the very first time as everything just looks so different. Especially when it is an area that has been designed to have something for every season, like Stewart Park has. A few gorgeous, pink blossoms trees in the Spring, tons of green foliage (and willow trees!) in the Summer, my favourite deciduous trees in the Fall for all those wonderful colours, and beautiful wide open spaces mixed with the flowing water in the winter. And of course, all of the architectural details throughout the park help out year round.
So all of this means that no matter what time of the year a client asks to do their session there, I am 100% up for it! In fact, I was super excited to head back there when Kaitlin + Andrew requested it for their engagement session.
The 2018 wedding season was pretty darn amazing and I don’t think there could have been any better way to wrap up all this amazing-ness than with Emilie + Maxie’s wedding day! Not only was it at one of our absolute favourite venues, but these two were just about the sweetest, cutest people we have ever worked with! And they of course included their baby boy – I mean, does it get any cuter than a baby in a suit?!
We are pretty lucky in that we get to capture wedding days for couples who are madly in love with one another. Pretty much every wedding day includes me adoring how they smile when they catch each others eye or how they make each other laugh with the slightest of ease. But Lisa + Joe’s wedding day seemed extra special for some reason, and honestly I couldn’t quite put my finger on it until it came time for the ring exchange during their ceremony.
