2013 Photography Review: Weddings

If engagement sessions make the year more colourful, weddings make the year more festive, with the coming together of loved ones to celebrate a truly beautiful thing. Come high heat or heavy rain, this year’s weddings didn’t disappoint. And once again, I found it near impossible to narrow down all that love and all that joy to a simple blog post of 2013 favourites.

Heartfelt thank you’s to every bride and groom who entrusted their wedding photography to me. It’s not a small thing and I don’t take it, or  you, for granted.

Here’s to looking back on the love and beauty of 2013, and ahead to all the promise that 2014 holds…

2013 Photography Review: Engagements

I love the opportunity December brings to reflect on all that came together to make the past year what it was. Engagement sessions make the year more colourful and go a long way in helping me get to know my couples; they allow me a glimpse into their story and how best to document them. Every couple is unique, making every session original in its own way. And, when it comes to their wedding, I love having built that bit of history with them, which serves as a perfect foundation for shooting their day.

Here’s a look at some of my favourite photos from my engagement sessions of 2013…

At Home With Addison, Averie & Asher

The other day I spent an afternoon with some of my favourite littles, Addie, Averie and Asher. They’re no strangers to my blog, but this time we simply hung out at home and documented them as they are…playing, giggling, tickling, jumping, running (away from the camera, in some cases), and snuggling. Plus, major props to their mama and my dear friend Andie, for her stylish decor taste, from the bedrooms to the playroom. Thank you for the fun, all! xo
