brittany + zach | walk in the woods couple session

Brittany and Zach...where do I begin? I wrote a little bit about my friendship with Brittany when I did some photos for them last September, but so much has changed since then! 

When I look back at the couple session by the art gallery downtown, I feel like I know that girl SO much better now. I know more about her kind heart and her generosity towards others. I know more about how much she loves Zach. And I feel incredibly lucky that Coop gets to have her as one of his many aunties.

I've said this many times before...but photographing friends is such an honour. And I don't take it lightly. Please enjoy a few shots of one handsome devil and his stunning girl, who happens to be one of my best friends in the entire world. LOVE YOU GUYS!

jamie + chris | moodie trail engagement

Jamie and Chris are getting married in June and I'm so honoured to be photographing their day!! We took a walk through a trail off Moodie Drive with their two pups for an engagement shoot. I'm in love with the results :)

Can't wait to see these two as bride and groom next Summer! 

Meet Daisy and Dodger! These puppies are three pounds of pure love.

My absolute fave :)

We found the very last fall tree...a beacon of yellow light amidst an otherwise bare forest.

So beautiful, Jamie! You'll be a stunning bride.

this time of year...

I love this time of year... The way the light gets a little softer, the way the sunsets can make you feel warm again. I love this space between the heart of fall and the beginning of winter. 

And it also marks crazy-busy-booking-season, which is simply the best. It's a different kind of busy than the wedding season -- less shooting and editing, more emails. It's the time when I get introduced to the amazing couples that I'll be working with the next year. 

When my clients ask when they should do their engagement session, I always tell them not to shy away from November. I tell them not to be scared of the fallen leaves, the muddy roads, the morning frost... Instead, get cozied up in a thick knit sweater and a pair of boots, and take a walk through the forest with the one you love.

So excited to share a few shots from my walk in Bridlewood with Brittany and Zach; two of the sweetest friends anyone could ask for.

danielle + mark | pebble wedding album

It's getting chilly. And I'm a mom now, which means I'm no longer able to go through an entire winter without a proper jacket. (Seriously, if you know me well, you probably know I typically brave the Canadian winter in a thick sweater and mittens, or opt to stay inside entirely.) But over the weekend Ryan and I popped into the brand new Tanger outlets and I'm now the happy owner of a fur-lined, super warm coat. 

In honour of the arrival of November and the chilly weather that comes with it, I'm bringing you way back to a sunny day in July. Danielle and Mark's Calabogie wedding was one of my favourites from this season, and I was so excited to put this album together a few weeks ago!

Here's a little peek into their 8" linen album in "pebble," with a beautifully engraved cover. 

Also shown here is the matching 4" leather mini book! This little guy came with me to the wedding show so that I could show off Danielle and Mark's wedding to all of my new 2015 and 2016 clients. So fun!
