Erica+Mike // Married

This day was sweet from the very beginning.  As soon as we pulled up to Erica’s house the door swung open, and we were greeted with cute waves from Erica and her MOH Melanie.  It continued to be an endearing day as we got to capture the bridesmaids practicing their walk down the aisle, Erica dressing her sweet newborn nephew, the rosary on the deck keeping away the rain, and the sweet pouts of the cutest little (under the weather) ring bearer.  Joy filled the house, and I couldn’t believe this beautiful day that I had been looking forward to had finally arrived (I love Erica and her whole family, I have basically adopted them: )

The church was full of smiling people and despite the forecast of rain, sun spilled through the stained glass windows.  Holding her father’s arm, she made her way to a beaming Mike as the harpist played their song; It all felt very ethereal.  The ceremony was happy and heartfelt, and I melted when Mike would reach up and wipe Erica’s tears away.
Every aspect of the day – the getting ready, the promise, the picture time, the reception – everything was just lovely!  Erica, you managed to make your elegant day look effortless, each detail coming together exactly how you described and dreamed it.  You and Mike and are fun and so adorable together, thanks for letting us photograph your love and your beautiful wedding day!!

bouquet and decor : DS&Co ( )
wedding planner : Julie leblanc, Erica Miller, Melanie Thompson aka the dream wedding committee : )

p.s.  We were also super excited to collaborate with Design Studio and Company to create a stylized after shoot a few weeks after the wedding. They made a beautiful bouquet, and boutonniere, and a lovely table display inspired by Erica’s decor.  I love that Tosha and her team were up for anything-even bringing beautiful chandeliers to hang from the trees.    Erica had really wanted to get beautiful photos with some specially ordered large balloons on her wedding day and had a hard time finding a place that could fill them-so I called around after the wedding and found out that Lloyd’s of Moncton could do it!  I asked Erica if she wanted to dress up again, and she was up for the fun and who am I kidding I wanted an extra chance to hang out with her and Mike before they made the big move to Edmonton (Mike plays for the Edmonton Eskimos and the season is starting up again).  Erica, Mike, Tosha and team – thanks for being up for anything to make even more beautiful photos-it was so much fun!!

*special thanks to April for being an amazing hostess and letting us explore your beautiful property!!

I LOVE IT ALL! Especially the stylized shoot! And from the couple shots – the first one of them in the birch trees. Gorgeous colours, gorgeous couple. Congrats to you both!


I have been so excited about this wedding all year, I mean ecstatic doesn’t even cover it.  Before I walked into “Made you Blush” – I passed my camera bag to Mitch, our assistant, and said, “I need my hands arms free for all the hugging and squealing that will ensue”.  There are so many amazing moments that I could write about, but I’ll just share my favourite.  As the acoustic guitar played and their song was beautifully sung during their ceremony, I couldn’t help but melt at the way Keltie’s beautiful brown eyes held Steven’s, her smile unwavering.

Keltie and Steven, your day was filled with so much laughter, music and the best family you could ever ask for! We were blessed to have spent the day celebrating your marriage; we wish you all the best!!

Beautiful pictures, wedding, people! Blessings to you as you begin your life together.

Shani+Gabriel // Aftershoot

He is quiet, she is full of life, and when he looks at her, his shy smile grows; they are unmistakably happiest in each others arms.

Shani and Gabriel had a destination wedding and wanted a second chance at getting images in the their wedding attire. When they explained their idea, we jumped at the chance to create incredible images in a laid back setting!  And these two brought their “A” game; they laughed, smiled, flirted, and snuggled in front of the beautiful Shediac landscape….we had so much fun with the two of them it didn’t seem like work at all!
Shani and Gabriel – you are such wonderful people, we were lucky to spend more time with you!
(p.s. check out their engagement shoot too! )

Rock the Frock!

When Sarah-Jane of Bastarache Beauty approached me to do a “Rock the Frock” series of shoots I jumped at the chance.  I mean, what is not get excited about – I get to work with an incredible make up artist, amazing stylists from Salon Boheme, amazingly beautiful women, dresses from Bella Promessa, a bouquet from Unico decor and consult with the Style Coach……It made me feel like I was in an Oceans 11 movie or some other film that was packed with awesome celebrities:) It was so nice to host everyone in our new downtown studio and even to have Philip Boudreau (a friend and fellow photographer) come along to one of the shoots!!

I loved being able to hone my posing skills for brides and work with a really laid back timeline to get beautiful bridals.  To my 2014 and 2015 brides -remember to plan to have your hair and make up done, and be in your dress for at least an hour to an hour and half before your ceremony (also factoring travel time so that you don’t feel rushed) and that way we can get beautiful bridal shots of you, lovely candids with you and your girls, and shots with your parents before the wedding!

A special thank you to our amazing models:

You two are great. I love looking at your pictures. Having had two photographers in the family I think makes me even more appreciative of your talents. keep up the good work. It was nice to see you briefly a few weeks ago in Truro. Best wishes for a successful 2014. Helen

Liam // Newborn

Smiles, snuggles and happiness emanated from this family.  Everything fell into place with ease and there was timeless simplicity to the morning.  Little Liam cooperated incredibly with the poses and his adoring big sister so tenderly held and kissed her sweet brother.  I loved capturing a little bit of this family’s story, and it didn’t hurt to be acoustically serenaded by Liam’s talented daddy while we worked!

Thanks to the Martin family for a wonderful time in the studio. Your family is absolutely precious!
