Stephanie + Adam - Winkler Engagement

Headed out to Winkler, Mb for Stephanie and Adams engagement shoot and frolicked in a field of potatoes destined to be McDonald's French Fries. These two were a lot of fun and up for pretty much anything, which is always good in my books!

Looking forward to heading back out there this winter for their wedding. 

Enjoy.

Meredith + Krzysztof - Engaged!

Michelle headed out to the park with Meredith, Krzystof, and their pup for their engagement shoot. The two of them were super sweet with each other the whole time. Their big day is coming up soon, and Michelle can't wait to get out with them again! 

Enjoy!

Olivia + Maciej - Engagement Shoot

Olivia and Maciej wanted to include their little man in their engagement shoot, so not only did he join in on pictures and be really cool about it, he also helped me take a few photo's too. Its been fun getting to know them over the past few years. Olivia is probably one of the nicest and sweetest people you'll ever meet, so i'd say we are pretty lucky to be working with them.

Enjoy. :)

Holly + Sam - West Hawk Lake Engagement

Holly and Sam, what can I say about these two lovers. They are an absolute great time, we had a lot of laughs and lots of fun on their engagement shoot out at West Hawk Lake. 
I may have even had to tell Sam to settle down a bit on the bum grabs, or I may have encouraged them... 

We took a little trail, and found some great views, and some beautiful light, and captured some beautiful moments of the two of them. 

I won't waste any more of your time, so just go ahead and look through the photos!

Not so long ago, I got to meet Caede. He put up a bit of a fight at first, but, in typical male fashion, after a good meal, he was out like a light! One of my fastest sessions to date! Caede slept like a log, while I got to chat with his Momma, and do my thing. And I loved the soft neutral colors chosen for this session.
Congrats to the new parents!

I got to meet Hudson when he was almost 2 weeks old, and he was one of my biggest babies yet! I was definitely a little bit worried that he wouldn't sleep, and he wouldn't fit in many of my props. But I was wrong! He slept like an absolute dream, and he posed so well, I even got a couple smiles out of him! He was amazing, and I loved every minute of the snuggles I was able to sneak in, and the catch up and visit with his Momma.

Congrats to Brian and Chauna, so happy we can capture another life event for you guys!

Alissa + Michael - Wedding

On what seemed to be one of the hottest days of the summer, Alissa and Michael got married! 

The crazy hot day aside, the wedding was fantastic, with a beautiful outdoor ceremony, and some great photo's around St. Norbert and Kings Park. We even finished up the evening with a beautiful sunset. 

Enjoy the photo's below :)

Nikki + Bruno - Engagement

It was a beautiful summer evening when I made my way out to Nikki and Bruno's place to shoot their engagement photo's. They even started things off with a drink and had one ready for me (I can't complain about that!)

We pretty much did a lap around their property and captured most of the beautiful photo's below. Its been great getting to know these two so far and hearing all of their crazy stories! 

Can't wait to get together again and capture some more memories with them.

Janelle + Eric - Wedding

Janelle and Eric are some of our best friends, and when we got picked to be their photographers we were more than excited and honored to do so! 

As I was one of the groomsmen my time shooting was a bit limited however Amanda and Dwayne did a more than amazing job capturing the day. The weather was perfect, nothing went wrong, and there was more than enough fun to be had throughout the day and night. 

Their wedding also had one of the best groom entrances i've experienced, Eric and his Dad we're flown in by helicopter to the wedding site. After the ceremony was complete the chopper took Janelle and her parents for a little flight as well. By all means feel free to make more helicopter entrances.

I've written enough, go get to the good stuff and check out all the photo's below!

Ashley + Matt - Beach Engagement

So its no secret, we take every chance we can get to shoot out at a lake, or head out on an adventure with our couples! 

We made our way out to Lester Beach with Ashley and Matt for their engagement. We found some pretty light, sat and talked for a bit, had some laughs, and watched the sun go down over the lake. 

Sit back, and enjoy scrolling through this post! I very much enjoyed getting out for this shoot.

Carley + Dale - The Gates On Roblin Wedding

When you get to shoot one of your best high school friends wedding, and all of the groomsmen are also your good high school buddies, it makes for one heck of a great day! 

Carley and Dale, and the full wedding entourage were so much fun to be around, there was more than enough good laughs! 

The weather was another story, with the rain being pretty off and on, but mostly on all day it forced the ceremony to be indoors, but sometimes thats just the way it goes. You take whats thrown your way and make the most of it. After the ceremony was over and the reception got going the weather cleared up and we got out for some last shots of the evening. 

Congrats Carley and Dale, thanks so much for having us be part of your day! 

Big thanks to our second shooter Michelle Blais for being awesome as always!

Anne + Rezan - Steep Rock, Mb

A little while back we received an email from Anne, she wanted some fresh photo's of the two of them in their wedding gear, and wanted a shoot to remond them of their wedding in Italy. 

We made the trek out to Steeprock, Mb. as it reminded them of their time out in Italy. 

Anne was not scared to climb some cliff's in her dress and heels either, and they weren't worried about the crazy waves crashing right beside them. We had a great time with this shoot, and really really love the photo's.  The moody weather and their willingness to do what it took to get the shot made for an excellent shoot!

Nicole + Ryan - Fort Garry Wedding

Nicole and Ryan's wedding day started off with a fair bit of rain, but it cleared up just minutes before their first look. Perfect right!?!

I love wedding days, and this one was full of fun and familiar faces, which made it that much better! We headed out down Waterfront drive, and over to Upper Fort Garry for photo's. 

The reception took place at the always amazing Fort Garry Hotel. It was decorated beautifully, and it helps that much more when your mom is a florist. Also, Nicole's dad had one of the best father of the bride speeches I've ever heard!

Its been an absolute treat getting to know Ryan and Nicole over the past couple years, we've captured some truly beautiful moments together!

Andrea + Eric - Gimli Engagement

I think i've discovered the best way to start an engagement shoot... ICE CREAM!!

We headed out to Gimli on a beautiful evening, first stop was Country Boy Restaurant for ice cream. We wandered around while they enjoyed their ice cream. Made our way onto the beach, and found some really cute spots around town, then finished up on the docks for the last bit of sun light, 

Andrea and Eric were total naturals in front of the camera, its like they could read my mind and knew exactly what to do. 

Enjoy :)

Alissa + Michael - Engaged

I always say I love shooting places i've never been before, so when Alissa and Michael we're up for meeting us out in Brandon, while we were away for the week out at Clear Lake I was quite pleased. 

We met up at the Brandon Research Centre and wandered around finding great spots to show off these two love birds. Afterwards we also had the pleasure of finding a few too many wood ticks on ourselves.

Not too long now until they are married! 

Enjoy. :)

Lennyn - Winnipeg Newborn Photographer

A strong core value we follow, and try to promote industry wide is "Community over Competition".
We have made some great friends in the wedding/photography industry, one of them being Bri Orchard-Sa from Orchard Photography.
Bri has been booming in the baby photography industry, and we have shared tips back and forth regarding weddings, baby's, gear and editing.

I had to take a few months off from shooting when I was too pregnant, and now that my daughter is a little bit older, I am wanting to get back into the game. As we are forever learning our craft, I asked Bri if she would mind if I tagged along on one of her many baby shoots. She happily agreed, and we set off to shoot one week old baby Lennyn.

Bri was generous enough to let me snap a few of my own photos during the process, and I couldn't help but shoot a few of her doing her thing. 

Lennyn was a dream baby and it went so smoothly, and I definitely left feeling like I had learnt a few things.

So a BIG thank you to Bri, not only a fellow photographer, but also a great friend.

Jamie + Brett - Ashgrove Acres Wedding

It wasn't that long ago that we posted Jamie and Brett's engagement photos, and no here is the big wedding day! 

Its been nothing but fun from the first time we met them, until leaving on their wedding day. The day was pretty much as perfect as could be, the weather was amazing. Ashgrove Acre's is quite the wonderful venue! 

Jamie and the girls started the day off at Bob and Page getting their hair and makeup taken care of, while the guys got ready out at Ashgrove Acre's. A little more getting ready out there for the girls and it was time for the first look, a beautiful ceremony, and a wonderfully decorated reception. 

Once the sun started to make its way down we snuck the two of them outside to catch a few more photo's. We really do love sneaking away for 10-15 mins with our couples when the sun starts to set. 

Big thank you to Michelle Blais for being an excellent second shooter! 

Congrats Jamie and Brett!

Little Rory was just 12 days old for her first photo's, and she did great, as did mom and dad. 
I really love these lifestyle type shoots and would love to do more of them. Enjoy.

Melissa + Aaron - Engaged

Birdshill Park never really disappoints.  It seems no matter what time of year you go there it's always great for photos. While spring time has its challenges with crazy weather, messy streets, etc. The park is just beautiful. It was a bit of a windy day when we got out with Melissa and Aaron, and it was a bit cool. However these two toughed it out and made the best of it, and the photo's show. 

Looking forward to capturing more beautiful photo's of them later this year.
