This wedding quickly became one of my favourite weddings to date because of the beautiful emotions that I was able to witness and capture and the beauty of the scenery and, not to mention, the bride’s style.

For only having 4 months of engagement to plan this wedding, I would say it was a hit.

These two are as sweet as they look. Christie had an overnight shift the night before and only had a few hours of sleep before we had our shoot. What a CHAMP. I am extremely excited for their wedding in October. It’s a morning wedding and we’re eating breakfast foods. Yes, it’s okay to be […]
