Equal Love St. Norbert Styled Shoot

I usually try to set a goal for myself which includes being apart of or helping organize a styled shoot at least once or twice a year to keep the creativity flowing during the slower months as well to work with like-minded event planners and other talented vendors in the industry as an amazing way to network with others. Overall a styled shoot day is always a lot of fun – there’s coffee, nibbles, awesome vendors to catch up with, incredible decor, florals and bridal wear, stationary and so much more with absolutely no pressure or strict time restraints like a wedding day sometimes has. The creativity flows freely, lots of laughs and so many beautiful images to swoon over are the result of the many hours of planning-  BUT when your vision board comes to life right before your eyes, its always worth all the organization and hard work in the end, especially for the lead planner who really puts in the efforts to organize all the vendors and bring the shoot to life. Alli Mae Events did exactly that and Deanna of Deer Dutch simply nailed this shoot with her incredible floral installation and pieces for the entire shoot. What made this shoot extra special, was working with our two brides who were absolute naturals together and their cuteness and love for one another was seriously contagious. Aimee de la Lande photography is all about equal love and I’m so happy to finally have had the chance to have two beautiful ladies in front of my camera. Fingers crossed I can work with more lgbt couples in the future because if they’re even half as cute as these two were together … well you can see for yourself.

Brittny DryE, Founder + Editor-in-Chief of Love Inc. Magazine also seemed to share the same sentiment about this entire shoot, so she decided to feature our work on their site that promotes Equal love and LGBT inclusive wedding features. I was so excited to find out we were selected to be featured for this shoot and if you need more inspiration, go check out our post and others over at the Magazine here. Enjoy this beautiful shoot and thanks for visiting xx

Melissa & John’s St. Norbert Arts Center Winter Engagement Session

Another relentlessly cold February day, but these two champed it out in one of my favourite shooting spots – the St. Norbert Arts Center and ruins. This location offers such a lovely backdrop in the winter and especially in the summer when all the trees are in bloom and one can head down to the river bank for some beautiful photos in the tall brush and grasses. Melissa & Johns’s Spring wedding is really only weeks away when you think about it and I’m already excited to see many familiar faces of their family and friends from past weddings I’ve shit – this always makes a wedding day extra fun! I’m also thrilled to shoot in their incredible venue – the Metropolitan Center, one of my favourites for sure. With all that said, I’m looking forward to these two kicking off my 2019 wedding season and also looking forward to a significantly warmer day next time we see each other. So until then, enjoy their frigidly adorable winter engagement session. xx

Jen & Kris’ Birds Hill Park Engagement Session

This winter has definitely not been kind to us that’s to say the least. With that being said, we did however manage to sneak in an engagement session on a weekend that was just a little more bearable than most have been for Kris & Jen’s session. Not to say that we weren’t still downright freezing by the end of our session; Kris & Jen’s pictures turned out adorable and they don’t look nearly as cold as they actually were. A big thanks to their their kind friends whom also braved the cold for half of the time helped with their adorable pups.  How adorable are these and their fur babies? I’m already excited for their beautiful Niakwa Winter wedding next January! xx

Amy & Justin’s Niakwa Golf & Country Club Winter Wedding

From the moment I met Amy and her mom at The Big Day Wedding Expo, I knew we’d be an absolutely amazing fit and I so desperately hoped she felt the same way too after connecting at the show. I waited patiently hoping to hear from her, and when I did I couldn’t have been more happy to meet again with Amy and her fiancé to really seal the deal. There is no greater feeling than meeting with both a bride & groom and not only connecting immediately but knowing  that you mostly importantly share the same vision and values on whats important in your photography coverage on the wedding day. Capturing the organic moments of the day are important to me and my clients, but if you are also details orientated and you love the flowers, the shoes, the invites, the decor and all the little things in between, then you’re going to want to find a photographer that shares in your detailed orientated passion. Even though I feel as though I have absolutely no style whatsoever on the best of days, I can tell you, I absolutely love and appreciate a well-planned, curated wedding day that effortlessly carries on a beautiful well-established theme pulling together the style, colours and details seamlessly to reflect my couples style. There’s not doubt that you’ll see exactly what I mean in Amy & Justin’s classic winter wedding day. From their engagement photos right to the wedding day, Amy and Justin pulled together a beautiful theme of classic sophistication from her dress, the classic bow tie worn by Justin, the groomsmen’s black fitted suits alongside emerald toned bridesmaids dresses complimented with beautiful Berry toned floral elements for that perfect pop of colour. Not only was this day aesthetically pleasing, these two are truly one of the sweetest couples I’ve ever met and they were certainly one of my highlight weddings of 2018. Mature, sophisticated, yet playful and seriously just kind individuals, their intimate wedding day focused on the appreciation of each and everyone one of their guests that attended their wedding day. We had a great day shooting in the Exchange District and on the lovely snowy filled grounds at Niakwa Country Club, and just when the day couldn’t get any better, the reception had me laughing and at points in tears it was so entertaining. Their MC absolutely killed the introductions of the wedding party, bride & groom and even hosted a surprise fashion show, seeing as how Amy’s side for-fun hustle is being a fashion blogger and a personal shopping assistant.
I seriously won’t forget how amazing this wedding day was, and I am so lucky that Justin & Amy’s wedding brought Amy and I together on more than one occasions for several fashion for-fun collaboration shoots leading up to the wedding day.
Wishing this amazing couple a long road of love, friendship, and happiness together and I’m sure it won’t be the last of connecting with these two.

Enjoy Amy & Justin’s beautiful wedding day and if you can’t get enough of this crazy gorgeous wedding and these two in general, you should go check out their incredible engagement session HERE taken at the St. Norberts Art Center.
