Chelsea + Brandon wanted their Muskoka Cottage wedding to be a celebration with their closest friends and family. And a celebration it was indeed. Chelsea was surrounded by the love of her besties while she sat in the hair and make up chair. We have known this amazing couple ever since we met during their engagement session – and we built quite the connection with them.
Let me start by saying this wasn’t your ordinary engagement shoot. We visited three locations, packed a picnic lunch, and shot during the sunset. I can’t think of any cool words to describe this engagement shoot other than EPIC.
Eden + Scott are good friends of ours and have been for a long time. So when they asked us to be apart of their wedding day next year, I basically did all the things an excited, extremely giddy girl would do, including jumping on the bed and prancing around our apartment. I was over the moon – because secretly I was crossing my fingers in hopes that they would ask us to shoot their wedding.
I had been looking forward to shooting with Kaitlin + Ryan for weeks leading up to their engagement session. Kaitlin and I emailed back and forth and scheduled the perfect day to meet up at Lynde Shores Conservation Area in Whitby. We gathered our gear on an early Saturday morning and headed up to Whitby. On our way there the rain clouds started to roll in and I really tried not to notice their presence looming over our heads. We arrived at Lynde Marsh and exchanged quick hugs and got right into shooting.
My cheeks still ache from all the laughs we shared with these two. Samantha and Paul were an absolute delight to photograph. The time we spent together traipsing around The Junction – our beloved neighbourhood in Toronto – was full of Paul’s fantastic stories, and Sam’s contagious smiles.
It’s snowing!!!!! I think this could be great… and also very unfortunate for hair.”
The excitement in Ashley’s text message early on Saturday morning set the tone for the whole day for me. She wasn’t the only one who was saturated with delight for our upcoming time together, as I have been looking forward to shoot Ashley and her charming fiancé Mike for weeks.
