Jeff & Serena’s Canadian Museum for Human Rights Wedding

Meet Serena & Jeff, we go a long way back now and I couldn’t be happier that fate brought us together. It all started when Jeff casually approached me at the wedding of his cousin with curiosity as to whether I  photographed  proposals – with the preliminary details shared, a “heck yes, i’m in!,” and a business card later, I couldn’t wait for Jeff to contact me for the beautiful surprise proposal he had planned for his soon to be financé. While all this was happening, the unsuspecting Serena was getting herself into position for the bouquet toss, I remembering rushing away from Jeff to make sure I didn’t miss the toss and of course, who else but Serena catches the bouquet! It’s almost too fitting for this story, I know.
I remember smiling so hard when I was nearing the end of editing Jeff’s cousins wedding and I got to the shots of Serena catching said bouquet. Anyone who knows Serena will tell you she literally lights up a room with her smile and laughter. She is truly one of the sweetest & bubbliest girls i’ve ever met and her reaction and excitement in the photos were absolutely epic!  All I could do was keep my fingers crossed that Jeff would contact me for the proposal Serena had no idea about.

Sure enough, a few month later Jeff contacted me with all the details of the surprise proposal and I was in; an incredible evening later with the sun setting and Serena arriving in horse & carriage to her fiancé on bended knee, we (friends, family, and myself) all left teary eyed and excited for the couples happy new beginning.

Naturally, I was even more thrilled when Serena & Jeff contacted me yet again to discuss their wedding date and I knew we’d be a great fit. Between clicking so well in person, having been with them at the start of their love story, and the details of the wedding day itself, it was easily one of my most anticipated weddings of 2017. I had never shot at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights and was absolutely dying to have a couple book me for their wedding day at this incredible architectural masterpiece. After all the details and logistics were discussed we discovered that same meeting that we all played dodgeball in the same league. I’m pretty sure our client meeting turned more dodgeball talk then wedding talk by the end of it all.

Of course, as you can see through the photos, Jeff & Serena’s beautiful wedding day did not disappoint. Every detail came together so beautifully – some of my  absolute favourite wedding industry vendors were also apart of this incredible day, and of course I just adore these two people and could photograph them all day every day. You honestly won’t find more sincere, genuine, passionate, and kind people – these two are real gems and a beautiful couple together. From the moment I saw Serena’s smiling face in the bridal room, to her stunning lace gown, beautiful flowers and sweet bridesmaids, I couldn’t wait for the day to start and to capture Jeff’s reaction as he saw his bride for the first time. People, I go to a lot of weddings and I don’t normally get too emotional unless they are real heart string tuggers, but Jeff literally had me in snotty nose running tears mode when he saw Serena come down the aisle with her father.

The rest of the day was also amazing, we had a beautiful fall day spent on Waterfront Drive taking photos with a super fun, relaxed, and spirited wedding party and of course the backdrop of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights also made stunning photos for Jeff & Serena before the reception started. The evening was equally as amazing; great food, games, heartfelt speeches, and a lot of laughter made the night fly by and before I knew it, their day was over for me. Luckily since then, we continue to see each other on an almost weekly basis as dodgeball comrades which is actually pretty funny – who still plays dodgeball right? Believe it or not, there are quite a few adults who still take it quite seriously lol and we happen to be three of them!
Anyways, if you’re still reading this, you should definitely stick around a little while longer to see their stunning photos from their wedding day. As always, some of my favourite vendors are listed below for reference. Enjoy xx

Madilyn & Aaron Assiniboine Park Wedding


I can’t say enough about Aaron & Madilyn and how fun a wedding day we had with them. Madilyn, what more to say than stunning – her smile, just wow! And Aaron, probably one of the sweetest, funniest, and most personable grooms I have ever had the pleasure of photographing. The day started at Victoria Inn with the girls getting ready, and the groomsmen getting ready at Madilyn and Aaron’s new home. The beautiful ceremony with family and friends was held in the Leo mol Gardens at Assiniboine park. Wedding party photos and portraits were shot in various locations in Assiniboine park where we then continued on to The Forks where Madilyn and Aaron were engaged. The reception followed at the Victoria Inn, the decor was beautifully done and the food was absolutely delicious.  Enjoy their beautiful day!

Leanne & Matt’s Metropolitan Wedding

Leanne & Matt’s beautiful & classic Metropolitan wedding is a stunner – another one for the books of favourite weddings and for so many good reasons.

First things first …. YES, this is a “real wedding” and NO, these two are not models; They just happen to be two undeniably attractive human beings whom have been blessed with incredibly good genes! All joking aside, this real life couple are just that – real life people who happen to be incredibly kind and so very laid back. Leanne was easily one of the most relaxed brides I have ever seen on a wedding day and absolutely stunning and classic. Her parents – they were honestly the cutest, sweetest, and most endearing couple so very much in love (you’ll see what I mean in the pictures). The wedding party was amazingly fun- many whom were past clients or acquaintances which always makes the day even more great. Glaringly obviously in all the beautiful photos, all the perfectly executed brought together by talented vendors and topped with a room full of love from their family friends & family.

Featured in Who’s Who magazine, this beautiful wedding can be found in print. As always, I have listed all the talented vendors whom brought this beautiful day together below.
