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.

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.

Jamie + Brett - Engaged

So while shooting a friends wedding back in early 2016 at the Manitoba Club a friend introduced me to Jamie and Brett. I think it went something like... "Hey these guys are getting married, and you're a photographer, you guys need to talk". The rest is history I suppose. 

We got out to Birdshill Park and adventured around finding some great light and pretty spots to shoot. I really love when couples relax and have some good laughs during their shoots, and these two did just that. 

Enjoy.

A little history about Janelle and Eric. 

Eric is my best friend, he was my best man at my wedding. Before we were friends I couldn't stand the guy! haha. Janelle on the other hand i've thought was great from the start, the perfect girl for Eric. 

We're really honored to be shooting two of our really great friends wedding, not only that but I get to be a groomsman as well. 

We headed out to a friends place for their engagement shoot. I'd never seen the place before and didn't know what to expect, it turned out to be a great place to shoot. 

Seeing as how they met while sledding they wanted that to be part of their photo's too, so there's a few shots with them and their sleds. 

Enjoy.

Easter 2017

Its time for some super cute Easter pics of our little kiddo's! This is Nix's 3rd Easter, and he's pretty darn excited about it! This will obviously be Alivia's first, based on her expression I'd say she's rather concerned about the whole thing. 

Hopefully these put a smile on your face!

We were supposed to head out to Birdhill Park for Jamie's maternity shoot but Mother Nature wasn't having that. So, instead we did the shoot in their home, and im really happy about that! I've been wanting to do more in home, lifestyle type shoots and this one was perfect! 
They even had flower wreaths made for the dogs to wear! (Awesome work by Britney of Fache Florals

Its fun chatting with soon to be parents, there's so much excitement, nervousness, unsure of what to expect, etc. I think these two will do just fine when their little one comes along. 

I'd love to do more of these type of shoots so if you're interested shoot us a message! 

Enjoy.

Cassandra + Troy - Grand Beach Engagement

Grand Beach isn't exactly a winter destination. However, when you've got a beautiful winter day with the sun shining why not hit the beach for some engagement photo's. 

Cassandra and Troy were up for some winter beach time thankfully, and we had a great time out there. We even had a little time by a fire in the snow!

I love getting out on engagement shoots and getting to know our couples better. There's always some good laughs to be had, and we always leave with smiles on our faces.

Carley + Dale - Engagement at The Forks

We spent an amazingly warm afternoon at The Forks for Carley and Dales engagement shoot.
Some skating was involved, and I seem to recall someone not being to sure footed on the ice. Im not going to name names though. 

I met Dale way way back in High school, we were pretty much best buds. I hate to admit it but we spent far too many late nights playing War Craft. 

Its always such an honor to shoot a friends wedding, and its also a great time to catch up with old friends, really looking forward to their big day! 

Enjoy :)

Carmen + Ben - Winnipeg Beach Engagement Shoot

I had seen some photo's of these crazy ice formations on the news, and knew I wanted to get out and shoot there. Carmen and Ben we're up for the adventure, so off to Winnipeg Beach we went. 

I had a great time with these two love birds, so many good laughs. Ben also really enjoyed it as it gave him a perfect excuse to get some kisses and cuddles in with Carmen. 

I didn't take it too easy on them, and talked them into climbing up onto these slippery ice mountains. I love it when couples are down for whatever I throw at them. 

Also, Im fairly certain Ben's real name is Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson also known as 'The Mountain' from Game of Thrones.

Here's to looking forward to many more adventures this year!

Getting Back Into The Baby Game! Newborn booking special! - Winnipeg Newborn Photographer

As most of you know, Corey and I just had a new baby of our own only a few short months ago - and when I was late in my pregnancy, I had to take a hiatus from shooting. This was tough for me, as it's something I enjoy doing. And although I may have put down the camera, I never stopped learning while I was away from shooting. I am constantly on websites, and watching tutorials and talking with other photographers - trying to learn new things, and different ways I can better my craft. 

But I am now back at it, and super excited to put all my new knowledge to use!

To get me back into the swing of things, and fine tune my flow, we are offering a special to the first few Momma's that book a newborn shoot with me.

I come to your home, set up near a nice sized window, and let you be comfortable and relax in your own space. I get to have some adorable baby snuggles, and you get a break! 

For more information, or if you'd like to book, please head over to our contact page and shoot us a line! 

I went back over some of the baby's that I got the privilege of cuddling with other the last year, and picked a few of my absolute favorite photos - check out below for the cuteness overload!

Renee + Kurtis - Winnipeg Lifestyle Photographer

I knew ahead of time that Renee and Kurtis had a certain style to them, what I didn't know was how great their home was too! Its totally their style. I couldn't have asked for a better place for this shoot! 

An in home shoot is just a bit more intimate than the usual couple's shoot outdoors. You are already comfortable in your home, it shows who you are and what you love. 

We started with some really great coffee (I seriously love coffee these days!) Even though there's 2 mugs shown in the photo's there was one for me too. 

I followed Renee and Kurtis around the house, forcing them to cuddle (well not really forcing them) It was really great to get them together for some more romantic moments, and for some good laughs, which were mostly at my expense. 

I'd love to shoot more of these in home lifestyle couples sessions, if you're interested hit the link to contact us!
