This June Tiffany and Daniel tied the knot in one of my favorite cities, Melville, SK. I could tell immediately that we were going to have a fun day. That morning I was greeted at Shear Concepts salon by a smiling bride and bridesmaids, all giddy with excitement. The anticipation of what's to come makes getting ready photos truly enjoyable to be a part of. After hair and make up, Tiffany and the girls got dressed at the home of Tiffany's mother. Daniel and his grooms men had a relaxing morning getting ready at the beautiful home Tiffany and Daniel share.
In the early afternoon Saint Henry's Catholic Church was brimming with family and friends to witness Tiffany and Daniel make their love official. The priest prepared a ceremony that had everyone smiling. We spent the rest of the afternoon taking formal photos around Melville. We made sure to stop in at the Waverley hotel, where Tiffany and Daniel met. Naturally the wedding party stopped for a quick refreshment before we headed to the Horizon Credit Union Center for the reception.
Congratulations Tiffany and Daniel. We wish you many years of happiness!
In January of 2015, I started a 52 Week Photo Challenge. It was meant to be a playful way to document a very pivotal year in my life. I think it's really cool to see everything laid out this way. This was definitely the hardest year of my life with my dad passing in September, but I'm very glad I did this project because it reminds me of all the awesome people in my life who's love and support has helped me through it all.
In September I met up with Tiffany and Daniel in Melville for their engagement photo shoot. They are getting married in the Spring next year. Tiffany and Daniel brought their puppy, Macey, along for some photos too. I think they make an adorable little family. Congratulations Tiffany and Daniel! I'm looking forward to your wedding next year :)
There are lots of pretty cool things about being a wedding photographer, but one of my favorite perks is participating in an important milestone in peoples lives. This is even more true when I am photographing a wedding for a friend. In my blog post for Jordan and Rena's engagement photo shoot, I gushed about what a great guy Jordan is. Now that I've gotten to know Rena I can say that she is every bit as kind, humble, and beautiful. I am so, so glad that I could take part in Jordan and Rena's big day. Saying it was fantastic would be an understatement.
Rena is great at planning and their wedding day went off without a hitch. We had a very rainy morning that let up just in time for the ceremony. Then we spent the rest of the afternoon taking formal photos on a beautiful farmyard just outside of Melville. The evening ended off with a reception at the Horizon Credit Union Centre. I always feel like I'm at a loss for words when trying to describe how awesome a wedding day was, so I hope the photos do it justice. Congratulations Jordan and Rena! You guys make an amazing team.
Last week I had the pleasure of meeting adorable baby Maverick. He was a wee bit over due (can you blame him? It's February, no one wants to go outside!). I'm sure Chantel and Andrew are thrilled to finally have this cutie pie home and in their arms. He was quite alert and curious for most of his shoot. I have a feeling this one is going to skip the crawling stage and go right on to walking. We managed to get him settled down for some sleeping poses. He was even calm enough for some "hunting" poses, which made dad pretty excited. Congratulations Chantel and Andrew!
