Jenn & Mat // Portraits

He cooks. She bakes.

They met playing dodge ball, but it took a little help from their friends to make the magic happen.

And, they’re getting married. Tomorrow.

Every since we first heard from Jenn & Mat, we’ve been so incredibly excited for their wedding day. I remember sitting with them in our living room/kitchen/office (our house is… compact) and thinking, “I like these two. We’re going to create some great photos together.” And, we did. Honestly, it was super difficult to narrow down the portraits we took of them by the sea for a tidy blog post. But, that’s okay. Tidy isn’t always the best anyway.

Jenn and Mat, we are so excited for you two. Tomorrow is going to be amazing from start to finish.

Mackenzie & Jay // Portraits

They met on a blind date–something that doesn’t usually work out so well from what I’ve heard, but for Mackenzie & Jay, it was the right time and the right person. Funny how that happens–how you can go along living your life and one day someone comes into your story and there’s no looking back.

Lucky was the day that we received an e-mail from these two about their more-like-a-dinner-party wedding. We’ve so enjoyed getting to know them more and more along the way. When they showed up for their engagement portraits they said they weren’t a very “cuddly” type of couple and we said, that’s okay. You can be yourselves and we’ll have loads of fun and whatever unfolds is good. And, they were themselves. And, it was good.

20 Frames

Sometimes you need more than one photo to tell the story of a moment. One thing we love to do when we’ve got the time is to create a panoramic photograph of our couple. It’s a way to keep your subjects large in your frame and tell the story of their surroundings too.

We photographed Angela & Will at Lighthouse Park, but I’m renaming it Cotton Candy Island because the sunset was that delicious.

This photograph was created by taking 20 separate frames of Angela & Will and the scenery around them, then combining the 20 frames into one image. The resulting image size is ginormous (18,000 px across) and would look incredible printed out and hung up.

Lately

Man, it’s been a crazy busy time for us lately with loads of weddings, engagement portrait shoots, and already chatting with couples who are getting married in 2015. Things are whirlwind-ish, but so good. So cool to be invited into the biggest day of people lives.

Engagement shoots by the sea, in the forest, on vespas, at the park he proposed to her, with balloons, savouring coffee, and then going for cocktails after photos are done.

Weddings on cliffs, on islands, with tattoos, with prosecco, with cupcakes, with bees pollinating the Wisteria, with tears during the first dance, with awesome amazing people.

We also got to photograph the awesome ladies of FARMACIE for some updated individual and group portraits. These women are doing awesome things!

Here’s an unload of some of our favourite frames lately…

Julia & Amiel // An Adventure

It’s no secret that we love adventures. And, the ocean. Luckily for us, Julia & Amiel love those things too and when they first wrote to us and shared about themselves, their wedding and some of their favourite things, I knew we were going to totally hit if off.

“We love driving on to boat ramps at low-tide, deep conversation, staring at the stars, quiet moments, having beach fires, spending time with our family and friends that are basically family, being in each others company, watching Downton Abby, eating delicious food at our favourite local restaurants, making beautiful music, appreciating beautiful music that others have made, and expression. Yes. Expression. Oh, and laughing. Yes. Laughing. #lol”

Haha! Don’t you just love that?

Julia & Amiel wanted to tell a little more of a story about themselves with their engagement portraits and had us photograph a Choose Your Own Adventure session for them. They were so laid back and up for anything, so we planned an afternoon of wandering through trees and along the ocean’s shores. We ended the day with an unbelievable cotton-candy sunset and then a beach fire and star-gazing. It was just so them. So full of joy and laughter. The kind of day when you can’t believe this is your job and how you get to meet such awesome people. A lovin’ life kind of day. I can only imagine all the great adventures that are in store for these two.
