Do you remember near the start of the summer when the forecast was calling for rain literally every afternoon? As the day passed the forecast would push the rain further another hour again and again until eventually it would just push it to the next day’s forecast. As a photographer, this was incredibly annoying! Not only were couple’s unsure as to whether or not we would need to postpone their engagement or family session, but no one had any clue what wedding days were going to be in terms of the weather. And this of course meant I had to pack and carry around way more equipment than I really needed to. Very annoying.
Although to be honest, it was always a plus when that rain was pushed to the next day because it meant our couples got a beautiful, albeit very hot and humid, wedding day instead of one that needed towels and umbrellas. This was the case for Maritza + Ismael, who persevered through the muggy weather like champs and definitely made the most of not on the weather, but also the gorgeous location they had chosen!
I was so excited to be heading to Temple’s for our first 2021 wedding there. Not only because I just generally love this venue (and all the amazing people there) and we hadn’t been there in way too long (thanks covid), but also because I was so excited to get to capture Marisca + Seth’s wedding day! As I learned during their engagement session, these two are literally the cutest ever and I just knew that, no matter the weather, their wedding day was going to be full of so much love and laughter!
So, this summer has definitely proven that if anyone ever invites you up to a remote cabin in the country where you have to drive down a two-way road that is barely big enough for one car, you say yes, because the end result is a gorgeous session in a truly breathtaking scene! And I suppose having Haley + Mark as company wasn’t too bad either 😉
Last year I split my favourite wedding photos into two posts but this year I honestly just can’t find the energy to write a whole other intro and whatnot (it’s time for some blatant honesty right?!). So with that said, I am sharing ALL of my absolute favourite wedding day images from 2020 in one huge post! From prep to reception and everything in between, I have put together my fav portrait and detail images for you all to enjoy one more time!
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!
