Alyssa + Andrew - Clear Lake Wedding Photographer

Alyssa + Andrew - Clear Lake Wedding Photographer

Fall in Clear Lake is pretty much my favorite. The town is so much quieter, but the scenery is absolutely beautiful, So a fall wedding in Clear Lake is hitting the jack pot for me!

Alyssa and Andrew live in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, but are originally from Manitoba. They and some family traveled from all over to meet in the small lake town for their celebrations. 

They had a very small, intimate gathering at The Lake House

 The Lake House is a small boutique type hotel that also has some of the best coffee and ice cream the town has to offer, and a cozy lounge space with a wood burning fireplace.
Everyone sat around one big table, and shared an amazing meal, followed by home made pies.

Caitlin and I showed up to Andrew's cabin first. Got to get to know him a little, and meet his Dad and step mom. We snapped some pics and chatted with him while he got ready, then headed over to see how the Bride was making out.

She was stunning. We did some detail and getting ready shots, and headed out for their first look as Bride and Groom.

Alyssa and Andrew had actually gotten married a few weeks ahead of their celebrations, on a hike, in Yellowknife, with just some of their closest friends as witnesses

This meant that the day of their Clear Lake wedding, the only business they had to attend to was getting their photos taken!

We spent a few hours wandering Clear Lake, finding some gorgeous light, and laughing. A lot of laughing. And shaking trees in the woods to try and make more leaves fall, only to fail, and then have the wind blow and have all the leaves fall perfectly in frame. I'm pretty Sure Caitlin and I screamed from the excitement. 

After dinner, we were able to sneak the newly weds out again for some sun set magic on the beach, only to be side tracked by trying to throw rocks as far as we could into the water, and then trying to run fast enough to catch a peak at a beaver swimming under the boardwalk.

It was a great, laid back, fun day. I'm glad I can re live it again as I sort through some of their photos to share, and write out my thoughts.

Having couples choose us to shoot their weddings is always an honor, but to spend the entire day having fun with them, and then leaving feeling like you've made new friends - is the best, and a driving force to keep us doing what we do, and keep us loving it more and more.

Stephanie + Derek - Fort Garry Hotel Wedding Photographer

I always enjoy weddings at the Fort Garry Hotel, and this one was no exception!

It was a perfect fall morning driving out to Stephanie and Dereks house to start the day with Stephanie and her bridesmaids getting ready. There was a lot of good laughs being had that morning, the best was from Dereks letter to Stephanie written on a shoebox lid (Its whats written that counts right!)

We did their first look outside their home in front of all of their family and wedding party. It was a real sweet moment, first looks are some of my fav moments.

We made our way down to the Exchange district, and Waterfront Drive for photo’s. Followed up with their ceremony at St. Lukes Anglican Church. What a fantastic church that is!

We finished up the formal part of the photo’s with a drive down Wellington Crescent. Which may have included a stop at a random mansion for some photos. Don’t worry, a few bridesmaids asked for permission first.

Then it was off to get the party started at The Fort Garry Hotel. Its always such a pleasure shooting there. The decor was beautiful, the flowers were stunning, and the evening was perfect!

Mackenzie + Brendan - Whitetail Meadow Wedding

Classic Winnipeg. The weather threatened to snow all day, yet we only received a bit of rain on Mackenzie & Brendan's wedding day at Whitetail Meadow. Though it was cold, Mackenzie & Brendan toughed it out and we were able to capture some really beautiful moments! I somehow even convinced them to go out after dark for some night time portraits!

Poutine bar, all night dancing and sparklers completed this perfect day - thank you so much for having me! Special thanks to Caitlin for helping me out by second shooting.

Keshia + Nicco - Pineridge Hollow Wedding

September sure got cold on us this year, and Keshia and Nicco’s wedding was no exception from that. It was chilly! We all toughed it out at Pineridge Hollow and still had a great time.
Great thing about Pineridge Hollow is you don’t really have to wander too far for good spots for photos.

The evening was full of great speeches, fun on the dance floor and quite the tug of war for the bouquet toss!

Enjoy!

Dahna + Kris - Bridgeview Acres Wedding

Fall weddings are just so darn pretty. This one was no exception! This was our first time out at Bridgeview Acres, and wow what a place it is. Lots of charm and character, and great places for photo’s. Dahna and Kris had their first look in the oak tree’s and included their super cute pup as well.

The ceremony took place in the middle of a bunch of beautiful oak tree’s and the reception was in the big beautiful barn. We managed to get out for a few extra photo’s around sunset too!

Amanda and I were working along side each other again for this one, and as always had a lot of fun. I think there was 4 different couples there that we had shot their weddings as well. Always fun seeing familiar faces.

Dahna and Kris were all kinds of fun and up for pretty much anything. Thanks for having us as part of this big special day!

Courtney + Andrew - Bridges Golf Course Wedding

Well, there’s nothing like a bit of rain to start off your wedding day. Courtney and Andrew had planned for an outdoor ceremony and they stuck to their guns and went ahead with it, luckily for them, all of their guests, and myself and Michelle the rain ended before the ceremony!

The wedding took place at the beautiful Bridges golf course. After the ceremony we gathered the wedding party together and took off on some golf carts for some fun photo’s. We even found a little turtle to take part in some of the ring shots!

We stuck around for some reception fun, and had a great time with Courtney and Andrew and their family and friends.

Enjoy

Kylee + Trevor - The Rustic Wedding Barn Wedding

Kylee + Trevor - The Rustic Wedding Barn Wedding

Oh boy,,, where to start with this one!

Might as well start with walking in the door to the guest cabin at the Rustic Wedding Barn. I was greeted by Trevor, in his underwear and a big smile on his face. Meanwhile Amanda was hanging out with Kylee and her fancy ladies. The guys had some good stories to tell of the night before, and im sure the girls had a few stories of their own.

Kylee and Trevor didn’t do a first look, but we did get them into the same room without seeing each other and let them have a few moments holding hands. Super sweet, with a few tears rolling down cheeks.

This was followed up by even more tears when Trevor actually got to see Kylee walk down the aisle. Whether its a first look before the ceremony, or one down the aisle I really do love those moments. It reminds me of my first look with Amanda back when we got married.

Kylee kept things pretty casual in the footwear department with a fresh pair of white converse (I thought that was super rad) and Trevor looked very sharp in his custom fitted suit!

This entire day was so much fun and filled with laughs, drinks, family, friends, smiles and cries. We had such a great time out at The Rustic Wedding Barn capturing this beautiful day for Kylee and Trevor. We continued the fun with an awesome sunset shoot! Be sure to make your way to the bottom of this one.

Enjoy!

I kick started September off with Michelle and Ben's wedding at The Delta Winnipeg. They got ready at the Delta, got married at St. Marys Cathedral across the street from the Delta and had the reception at the Delta. haha!

Had some good times with this crew, from shooting photo’s at Aspire Studio’s to having to give 2 limo’s a boost outside of the studio (thankfully I had jumper cables with me), to some more photo’s around St. Boniface. Their reception was beautifully decorated by Janice Berry Florals and Dream Day Decore!

I also got to work along side some other great people for this one.

Katie + Jeremy - Winnipeg Wedding

These two lovebirds were married on a lovely September day. I had a blast with Katie and Jeremy on their special day. We took the party to Whittier Park and then over to 7-11 for some classic slurpee treats before heading to their reception. Their whole day was about family - the joining of two, having beautiful music sung by members and simply enjoying being with the people closest to them. Was truly a beautiful day.

What a fun day this was! Brittany & Nick were married on a warm summer day at The Gates on Roblin. They were surrounded by their family and friends, who also made me feel right at home and we laughed the whole day! It was a very special day with memories that will last a lifetime.

Coral + Chad - The Forks Winnipeg Wedding

Coral & Chad were married on a warm night in August at The Forks in Winnipeg.

These two totally rocked their shoot and it was lots of fun exploring The Forks and finding sweet hidden spots with them. They were total naturals in front of the camera! They had a dusk ceremony and reception with mini donuts (seriously who doesn’t love some mini donuts!) it was the perfect end to the night.

Thanks you two, enjoy!

Jess + Chris - Hawthorn Estates Wedding

What can we say about this one? It was one heck of a fun time, from drinks, and jokes, people getting ‘iced’, to beers exploding in faces. It was wild. It was also a full of love and emotions.

Jess and Chris started with a beautiful first look at Assiniboine Park, there was a few tears flowing during that. Followed up with some fun with the wedding party. After Assiniboine Park we made our way over to The Kings Head Pub (im never opposed to, the people there are fantastic, not to mention the drinks and food are delicious) after some fun in there we got back outside for a few more photo’s before making our way out to the beautiful Hawthorn Estates for their ceremony and reception. If you haven’t been out to Hawthorn Estates, it is one of the most beautiful wedding venues around Winnipeg.

Amanda and I had a fantastic time with Jess and Chris and all of their family and friends. Couldn’t have really asked for a better day.

Enough of my chit chat, start scrolling and check out some of the photo’s from the day!

Angela + Darin - Kenora Wedding Photographer

I love getting out and shooting in and around Kenora and Lake of the Woods. Its such a beautiful place and so close to Winnipeg. For Angela and Darin’s wedding we spent the day in Kenora finding some fun places to shoot with them and their wedding party. These two were so full of love for each other and had all kinds of cute moments together. We snuck out with them for some sunset photo’s in the evening, and even though we didn’t get a wild sunset we still got some great romantic shots of them together. When we got back to the party it didn’t take long for the dance floor to get bumpin!

Enjoy!

Steph + Josh - Evergreen Village Wedding

August was a beautiful month! The weather was great and the weddings were all kinds of fun!

Steph and Josh’s wedding was no exception to all of that. We had a great time with them out at Evergreen Village. After the ceremony the two of them jumped into their Mustang and we sped off to go do photo’s in St. Norbert.

We made our way back to Evergreen Village and got the party started! Ended off our evening with them with a sunset shoot.

Sarah + Matt - Whitetail Meadow Wedding

Sarah and Matt got married this past July at Whitetail Meadow, this was our first wedding there, and wow is it gorgeous!

The day started off with a whole lot of good laughs and fun with Matt and his groomsmen getting ready. I made my way out to Whitetail Meadow and met up with Sarah and all of her bridesmaids there in the little cabin.

Once everyone was all fancied up and ready to go we made our way out for a sweet and intimate first look between Sarah and Matt. We took a whole bunch of photo’s around the Whitetail Meadow property and then got the ceremony started.

The rest of the day was full of fun for family and friends, great speeches that had me hurting from laughing so much, and great times on the dance floor.

Fun fact, 6 years ago when we got married we took photo’s in front of an old red barn where Whitetail Meadow is located, turns out that old barn got transformed into this amazing wedding venue!

Jennifer + David - Assiniboine Park Pavilion Wedding

Jen and David got married With a gorgeous ceremony outside the Assiniboine park pavilion, Jen with her kids at her side and David with his sister by his. The ceremony was sweet, and personal.

I may have only been around them for a couple hours but it was long enough to see how much love they had for each other and their family and friends. 

Inside the Assiniboine park pavilion was decorated beautifully by the Little Flower shop.
This really is a beautiful space for a wedding.

Enjoy the photos below.

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.
