{featured: coastal bride} laura + lee's wedding in maine

I am convinced I'll look back at 2013 as the year I travelled all over shooting beautiful weddings for amazing couples. 

This lovely feature on Coastal Bride forced me to look over these photos almost a year after they were taken, and suddenly I'm reminded of how much I love what I get to do! I hope to be back to shooting destination weddings next year (maybe I'll be packing my family with me…!) because there's really nothing like it. 

So if any of you ladies are recently engaged and considering skipping town to say "I do," let me be the wind beneath your wings, shouting DO IT, SISTER! And bring me with you!

a little peek into the baby's room…!

As most of you will already know, I'm super pregnant and waiting on the baby to come any day now! I've been able to keep on top of all wedding inquiries up to this point, but once those contractions come -- I might be out of touch!

This is my little goodbye-to-the-world blog post until further notice :) Next time I check in, I'll be a mommy!

For now, here's a little peek into the baby's room...

{featured: style me pretty} kim + jeremy's romantic engagement

I'm so excited that two of my favourite friends are featured on Style Me Pretty! Their engagement session totally sums up everything I love about shooting couples… the style, the laughter, and the romance.

Plus, being featured on SMP is the BEST way to kick off a week :) 

More beautiful photos of these two in the full gallery… :)

Countdown to this stunning wedding has begun!! It'll be the first wedding I shoot post-baby and I am puuuuumped!

pre-baby work wrap up!

YOU GUYS! I've officially worked my last job before the baby's arrival! 


I'm still feeling fabulous, even at 8 months pregnant, but I can feel myself starting to slow down a little bit. I've been leaning on Beans' arm while we walk through a parking lot, I've been sitting with my feet propped up at night, and I've been taking even more naps than usual… But I'm loving it :)

Everyone keeps asking me if I'm "done" being pregnant, and the answer is HECK NO!! I am not ready to stop feeling elbows and knees poking into my sides…it's just the best! And I love this strange time where the baby and I are so close and yet I can't picture his little face. 

I've had the most pleasant pregnancy I could have ever imagined. And I'm very happy that I've been able to work right up until about a month before my due date. (Did you read that right?! A MONTH before my due date! How is it already so close?!) 

Take a look at this little sneak peek of the very last shoot before my "maternity leave." I'm pretty excited about it :)

meghan + hannes | NAC winter wedding

The process of getting all my gear out of the closet, dusting it off, and packing it up for Meghan & Hannes' wedding was so therapeutic. It felt so great to be back behind the camera last weekend, and I'm very happy with this final collection!

Enjoy a few images from our day together…  

Love this heartfelt moment between Meghan and her mom!

Braving the -22* weather to get a few sunset shots -- I love how brave my couples are!

The reception was held in the panorama room at the NAC… 

Congratulation, Meghan and Hannes! 
Thank you SO much for including me in your beautiful day <3
