ashley + damien | dow's lake engagement

Ashley and Damien were my very first engagement session for this wedding season, and I truly believe that I had forgotten how much I LOVE shooting couples...

Largely because at one point during our session, I squealed mid-photo and said "I forgot how much I LOVE this!!!"

Take a peek into Ashley and Damien's sweet romance...

Slightly obsessed with this Spring morning light...

Oh my goodness, Ash...you're absolutely STUNNING.

I absolutely LOVE these shots with the puppies :) 

carolina + brandon | punta cana couple session

While we sat on the catamaran on Thursday afternoon, I looked over at Brandon and Carolina acting all madly-in-love as per usual, and I knew I needed to get them in front of my camera for a bit.

Did I mention it also happened to be Carolina's birthday??

Before their romantic dinner that night, I met up with Brandon and Carolina for a quick photo shoot :) P.S. you'll recognize these two from Shaun & Sherry's wedding party!

Here are some of my favourites...

The resort staff enjoyed their dancing in the streets...

Brandon and Carolina...I loved photographing you two!! You're so in love, and it's so apparent when I'm looking at it through my camera. 

I hope your birthday was fabulous my dear :)

sherry + shaun | dreams palm beach, punta cana destination wedding

Shaun is my brother-in-law, and since I've been on the scene for close to 7 years now, we have shared many a family dinner together. And I'll never forget the speech he gave at my wedding, about how he considered me a sister :)

But when it comes to Shaun and Sherry, there were bits and pieces of their romance that remained a mystery to me until the wedding party started making speeches at their wedding!

The stories about Shaun chasing her around the store where they worked...and how Sherry told her friends about this guy she had met...it was the sweetest thing. 

Attending a wedding for a family member is wonderful, but having the whole family fly south for a DESTINATION wedding is just that much better :) I am so excited to share the images from their beautiful wedding day...

Doesn't every Bride do a bit of editing on her vows on the morning of her wedding? 

I absolutely adore this moment...

How many Groomsmen does it take to dress the Ring Bearer? Apparently all of them.

And here's the part where Mom cries when she gets a gift. Every...single...time. Love that about her!

Our adorable parents, right before walking down to their seats :)

The moment I took this, I knew it would be one of Shaun's favourite images from the whole day. He has the most unbelievable relationship with our Grandad...

Sherry's entrance created quite the crowd at the beach...(couldn't resist.)

It couldn't have been more perfect...the parasail floated by just moments before their first kiss... :)

Any excuse for photos of these two people on my blog, and I'll use it 

The dancing shots were a blast, because everyone knew me and wasn't afraid to let loose in front of my camera...

I think I'll end this post with one of my favourite shots of Shaun and Sherry's first dance as husband and wife... :)
