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.
Last year I posted our very first Behind the Scenes (BTS) post and it was apparently really popular with all of you. I was super nervous and pretty apprehensive about posting it as I am a pretty self-conscious person but I did it and I am doing it again this year!!
WARNING, this also happens to be our longest post of each year, so prepare yourself for a lot of photos and tidbits of info!
When 2018 started I was really worried that I wouldn’t be able to hit my goal numbers for weddings and sessions. But really I just had to have faith that things would work out (provided I put in the work of course), because in the end, this year was absolutely amazing!
My end-of-the-year blog posts have grown in number over the years, but it is my annual Thank You post that really puts things in perspective for me. I have such an incredible job in which I get to be a part of some really special moments. Our clients invite me into their wedding days, their homes and their families to do my work and when I sit down to write out this post I really am so humbled by the amazing experiences I get to be a part of each year.
Proposal sessions have to be some of my favourite things to do! Not only do you get to meet a new couple and have a great time grabbing some engagement photos for them, but before all that starts you get to capture the very beginning of their wedding story!
They can be a little nerve-wracking for us too as you never know exactly what is going to happen – by which I mean where they are going to stand and face (you can chat about it beforehand, but there is no adjustments possible during the main event). Although somehow I think the whole thing is more nerve-wracking for the one popping the question! But Peter did an absolutely marvelous job and it was so exciting to get to see the look of surprise and excitement on Alexis’ face!!
