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!
When Chantal + Brendan asked if they could alter their engagement session for a part engagement part family session I of course said yes. We have done a few of these over the years and it is a great way to let your entire family be part of your engagement and just the photo session in general. But upon meeting Tessa and their pup Maya, I am so, so glad they wanted them to be included because not only is Maya such a good doggo, but Tessa is without a doubt the coolest ten year old I have ever met!
I don’t remember exactly how long that first meeting was, but I know that it was definitely one of my longer consults and ever since I sat down for coffee with Hannah + Curtis I have been super excited for their wedding day! And as the big day got closer and closer, my excitement levels only went up and up! But honestly, even though I was super pumped to work at this venue and with all of the wonderful vendors these two had chosen to be part of their day, the thing I was most excited for was getting to capture these two amazingly kind souls.
We have had many couples who ended up getting married after meeting online, but I think Casandra + Alex may be the first who specifically met while playing video games online. So with that in mind, and the fact that the are active gamers to this day (and went to school in the industry), it makes perfect sense that their wedding day was themed around their favourite past time.
I honestly don’t even know where to start when describing Sarah + Isabelle’s wedding day because literally every thing about it was a complete and utter knockout! The decor, the vendors, the view, the people, the shenanigans and, because it deserves to be mentioned at least twice, the people! Seriously even with all the amazing things that this wedding had, the people were what made it so indescribably amazing. From the wedding party to the families everyone was so sweet and helpful and full of so much love for this wonderful couple.
