Vanessa + Thomas | Cornwall Wedding

Ever since their engagement shoot in the fall of last year, I’ve been looking forward to Vanessa & Tom’s big day. The beautiful Cornwall wedding took place in Vanessa’s sister’s barn, which underwent serious redecoration in prep for the ceremony and cocktail hour. Though we battled some of the most intense wind howling through the entire farm for a majority of the day, it actually worked to our advantage with Vanessa’s stunningly long vail. Their friends and family were incredibly kind, welcoming and overwhelmingly energetic on the dance floor. It was quite the party! I’m so glad I got to be a part of it.

Jessie + Dune | Strathcona Park Engagement Shoot

Not too long ago, Jessie, Dune and i kicked back and relaxed on a warm afternoon in Strathcona Park for an engagement shoot with a twist. I knew i would have to make the shoot as painless as possible for Dune, who is a little camera shy. I started by taking them off the beaten path to keep things as fun as possible. A little adventure to the graffiti area and getting them to hike up to the trees made for some interesting photos… and a little poison ivy never hurt anyone, right? By the end of the session, these two were nailing every shot! I can’t wait for their wedding day!
