Saki + Edwin - Manoa Falls, Oahu Wedding Part 2

Saki + Edwin - Manoa Falls, Oahu Wedding Part 2

We met up with Saki and Edwin pretty early in the morning to head out on this hike to do some more wedding photos with them. To start it should be noted that Saki did the entire hike in her wedding dress and flip flops (no big deal). This was some of the hottest, most humid hiking i've ever done, we were all sweating like crazy, except for Saki!

When the trail first starts you get this crazy view of so much lush greenery, this got us all kinds of excited and shooting right away, then you walk like 20 steps further and the view gets even better!! 

There was so many great little spots to stop and shoot on the way up to the falls, and then on the way back down you get to view every thing just a little bit differently and get excited about it all over again.

It was a good thing we got started on the hike early as when we reached the falls there was already a crowd of people starting and by the time we were done shooting at the falls it was packed with people. 

This was really one hell of an amazing shoot, and so much fun. We can't wait to get back out to Hawaii again one of these days. 

There will be one more Oahu blog post coming, but it will be of personal photo's we took of our time out there, so be on the look out for that.

Sara and Troy said their ‘I do’s’ at the beautiful Hawthorne Estates this summer. We got to see a few familiar faces at their wedding, which is always great! Hawthorn Estates was spectacular as always. We even managed to sneak out for a few sunset photo’s with Sara and Troy. Congrats to the two of them on this wonderful day!

Kirstie + Michael - The Gates on Roblin Wedding

Kirstie & Michael were married in Toronto this past winter and wanted the exact opposite for their Winnipeg wedding. Well, they got it. It was at least 35+! We went out to Harte Trail and The Gates on Roblin for some beautiful and intimate portraits, just the 3 of us. Then they had a lovely brunch followed by a BBQ in Michael's parents back yard. Everyone was so welcoming and lovely - thanks for including me in your special day!

Catherine + Jordan - Winnipeg Wedding Photographer

Holy smokes was this one a hot and windy wedding day!! however it was freakin amazing too! Everything was perfect throughout the day, and a whole lot of fun was had. The wedding was held on Catherine's parents property which was beyond beautiful, florals and decor was taken care of by Floral Fixx (they did a beautiful job!). 

We started the day with the first look at Birds hill park, and then followed it up with the rest of the photo's there too. When it came time for the reception some pretty wild clouds came rolling in and they only lasted a couple minutes but we managed to get some crazy photo's with them. 

Managed to catch a bit of sunset to wrap up the evening, and then the party got started! 

Enjoy!

Amanda + Scott - Hawthorn Estates Wedding

Well, Amanda and Scott got married on what I would say was one of the HOTTEST days of the year! So hot that my glasses would fog up when I would walk outside of the building! 

I had a fantastic time with Amanda and Scott, and their family and friends out at Hawthorn Estates. Too many good laughs were had with every one. We snuck outside as the sun was setting to capture some more beautiful shots with the two of them.

Take a scroll through and enjoy!

Saki and Edwin - Paradise Cove Oahu Wedding

Saki and Edwin - Paradise Cove Oahu Wedding

For as long as I can remember it’s been a dream of mine to visit Hawaii, well it finally happened! I’ve known Edwin for longer than I can remember, him and my brother were always great friends so I’d see Edwin around the house quite a bit. One day I got a message from Edwin telling me he wanted us to shoot his wedding in Hawaii, on the island of Oahu. I may have gotten a slight bit excited by this. We got together at their condo, I met Saki for the first time and we had some pizza together and talked about the plans for the big exciting day.

So here we go, Amanda and I hopped on a plane to Vancouver followed up with another to Waikiki!! First thoughts upon landing in Waikiki.. holy smokes it’s hot here and whaaaaaaat!! We’re in Hawaii!!!!!

We stayed in Waikiki a block from the beach, pretty much perfect! If you’ve never been to Waikiki let’s just say it’s kinda like Vegas, minus the casinos and smoking but with an amazing beach and far friendlier people. We soaked up the sun, watched surfers surf, enjoyed great food and maybe a few mai tai’s!

I’ll get back to a few of our adventures in a bit or maybe I’ll do a separate post for those.

Now for Saki and Edwin’s wedding day! Obviously we kicked it off with a power breakfast at McDonald’s! Amanda made her way to the guys hotel while they got ready and I went over to Saki’s hotel while she got ready with her girls. We then met up with all their family and friends on the big tour bus to make our way to Paradise Cove for the ceremony and reception. The heat that day was no joke! It was hot, like crazy hot! That didn’t stop everyone from having a great time though. Their ceremony included some fun Hawaiian traditions (they had to kiss for as long as the officiant could blow into a conch shell). Cocktail hour was fantastic, they even had Hawaiian shave ice available for everyone (seriously good stuff!). We wandered along the beach and took so many photos! Paradise Cove was a spectacular wedding venue. Once the sun started to get close to where the sky meets the ocean we headed back down to the beach for some more photos, and wow the Hawaiian sunset didn’t disappoint! We spent the rest of the night partying with everyone there and having an amazing good time!

No apologies for all the pics below. Also stay tuned for part two of our time with Saki and Edwin where we hike to Manoa Falls for another shoot!

Michelle + James - Qualico Centre Wedding

Back in June I spent the day with Michelle and James. We did their first look outside the front door of their home, and then headed out to Assiniboine Park for photos. Every thing was going great when out of no where a crazy rain storm hit and sent us waiting inside our vehicles for 30 mins. This was the same time that a lot of High School grads were going on and needless to say I think a lot of them got a bit wet while having their photo's done too. 

Once the rain went away the sun was back out for a beautiful day, we shot a bit more and then headed over to the Qualico centre to wrap up the evening with their reception. Lots of fun and good laughs with these two and their wedding party and family.

Katie & Adam - Pineridge Hollow Wedding

We spent a beautiful day at pineridge hollow with Katie and Adam for their wedding. They opted for a first look which left Adam in tears, and maybe a few others too. We headed into the wilds of birdshill park for some photos with the two of them and their wedding party, and then back to Pineridge Hollow to make things official with their wedding ceremony. Lots of good laughs and fun to be had that evening.

Time to start scrolling through the pics below!

Sara & Brett - Ashgrove Acres Wedding

You may remember from their engagement shoot blog post, that I used to babysit Brett and his brothers. Oh man those three were a wild handful! Not much has changed since then other than they are grown up and I don’t babysit them anymore. It was truly an honour to be able to capture Brett and Sara’s big day, and to see so many familiar faces too!
Their wedding was held at the beautiful Ashgrove Acres. It’s always such a pleasure shooting there, everything is so well taken care of and the owners are fantastic people too.
The weather didn’t really want to cooperate for us that day, moments before the ceremony it poured rain, lots of it! But Sara and Brett kept it together and waited it out for it to stop and then got the ceremony going outside as planned. It was a pretty great day after that, lots of great speeches, good laughs, and just an excellent time had by all that day!

Enough of me yammering away, check the photos out for yourself!

Lia and Lou - Journey to Churchill Wedding

Well this one was one of the sweetest weddings I ever did get to shoot. These two are just meant to be, you can tell when you first meet them, and then you get into a room full of their family and friends and you really know its true love. Had such a wonderful time with Lia and Lou and everyone at their wedding at the Journey to Churchill Exhibit in Assiniboine Park Zoo. We even had the pleasure of some polar bears joining in to watch the ceremony.  

Enjoy!

Nikolina + Paul - Victoria Inn - Winnipeg Wedding Photographers

Alright... So let me just start by saying I couldn't have asked for a better wedding to kick off the season! The entire day was full of fun and celebration. We started off in houses packed with family and friends getting ready, then off to the ceremony, followed up with photo's at the Manitoba Legislative building then off to get the evening party started with 400ish guests at the Victoria Inn. The weather was absolute perfect too, it was a perfect start to what is going to be a great season of weddings!

Ashley + Matt - Qualico Centre Wedding - Winnipeg Wedding Photographers

Ashley and Matt got married back in February, and yeah as you'd expect it was cold out. They embraced it and we made the most of the beautiful wintery outdoors. We also stopped in at the Kings Head pub to warm up, have a drink or two, and some snacks (I'll never say no to a stop at the Kings Head!) Their wedding reception was held at the Qualico Centre in Assiniboine Park. There was a good amount of fun happening throughout the night, I seem to recall a bottle of Fireball being passed around with a gopro attached to it. 

Enjoy!

Nikki + Bruno - Winnipeg Winter Wedding

It was a rather cold February day when Nikki and Bruno got married, however that didn't slow anyone down at all. The day was absolutely perfect and full of fun, good laughs and lots of love. The ceremony and reception were both held at the beautiful Best Western Greenwood Ballroom (seriously always so nice in there!) and Nikki had it looking great with all of the decore and florals from Floral Fixx.

Ashley + Kenny - Inn at the Forks Wedding

Ashley and Kenny were married on New Years eve at the Inn at the Forks. It was a freezing cold day but it was full of warm hearts, and tons of fun! The day started off with a traditional tea ceremony. After a quick change of clothes they did their first look and then we made out way out to the freezing cold outdoors for some photo's. The night was all kinds of fun, the dance floor was on fire and the party was great! 

Congrats again to these fun lovers! 

Enjoy!

Stephanie and Adam - Winkler Winter Wedding

When its minus one million outside, and you're shooting a wedding in Winkler, and your Groom is a potato farmer you head to the place where they store the potato's for some photo's! 
Never would I have imagined shooting in a place like that, but I'd say it turned out pretty damn awesome. 

Stephanie and Adam had a super sweet, and extremely beautiful wedding out in Winkler just before new years eve. We had a lot of fun, and dealt with some super cold temps but everything went perfect in the end. I didn't mind a quick pit stop at the local coffee shop either. 

Enjoy!

Caitlin + Jeff - Peg Beer Co Wedding

It was a chilly winter day, but Caitlin and Jeff kept things hot. We made our rounds starting at The Alt Hotel, Peg Beer Co, The Kingshead Pub and then back to Peg Beer Co for the evening ceremony and reception. We had a great time with them, and other familiar faces at the wedding. I've known Jeff for quite a few years now, so it was an honor to be shooting their wedding. 

Enjoy!

Liz + Ash - Hitchn' Post Wedding

So on a scale of 1-10 for unique weddings I've shot over the years this one is 12 out of 10. I'll start by mentioning that I've known Ash for more years than I can think of. I still remember one of the first times we met, and it involved one of my favorite food groups (Chicken wings, Ash when you read this maybe we can plan to go for wings soon!) We've been through it all together over the years, so it was definitely an honor to be asked to shoot their wedding. 

From the skulls, pumpkins, horror movie table numbers, and more you'll get a pretty good idea of the things that Liz and Ash are into. Ash had a green suit (Super rad in my books!) and Liz had a custom made Lennard Taylor Wedding dress. There was plenty of details, that wild cake!, vows written on a roll of toilet paper, and some thoughtful tributes to those that couldn't be present. 

Liz and Ash, thank you both for having me capture your wedding day for you!

Gail + Kevin - Canadian Museum for Human Rights & Inn at the Forks Wedding

It was a cool and breezy October day for Gail and Kevin's wedding. We started off with their first look on the Esplanade Riel Footbridge and followed it up with some photo's around the Forks, and in front of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. They had their wedding ceremony inside the Museum and held the reception at the Inn at the Forks. Gail and Kevin started the party off with one hell of a fancy and fun dance. It really set the pace for the rest of the evening.

Believe it or not, but we shot 2 weddings in 2 days at the Viscount Gort. Crazy right. 
Oksana and Tyler had their ceremony in one of the most beautiful church's I've been in, it was amazing! (You'll see below) We spent some time doing photo's around the Exchange, and then switched things up and did some at the Leo Mol Gardens in Assiniboine Park. Wrapped up the evening at the Viscount Gort for a fun and entertaining reception.
