Winnipeg Art Gallery Wedding with Courtney and Dan

I was laughing and enjoying Courtney's countdowns to her big day by posting an image from our Connection Session on the social media sites.  It was great to see my photos of them featured, but even greater to see how excited she was to marry her Dan!

These two are so perfect.  Gentle, kind, genuine people. Two people at the beginning of a great adventure, burning with motivation, to make their journey a great one. Inspirational!

I feel very proud of this wedding, I think we got some amazing images, but I am feeling proud because I was able to capture (not knowing) - two photos showing the the first moment these two saw each other at Lindsay and Jude's wedding a couple of years ago.

We walked for almost 2 hours, and although the air was humid and filled with mosquitoes, we got to know each other and created some beautiful moments.

Miranda and Kevin, two beautiful people, with their own unique story.  Looking forward to their wedding day!

Today I am featuring Courtney and Dan's Connection session / Engagement photos we did a couple of weeks back, out at Dan's family cabin in the West Hawk Lake area, just over the border into Ontario.

It was the first time for me out there and I was surprised to see such amazing cabins right on the water.  Leah and Zuri joined me on the trip out there and it was fun to see Zuri enjoy her first ever boat ride - the only way to access Dan's family cabin.

Today I would like to feature a couple of my favourite images from Jonny and Cathleen's Connection Session out in Birds Hill Park.

I am loving my Connection Session and Family Portrait sessions more and more every time I do them.  I think I am getting as much from it as my couples / families do.  We all need to escape from time to time.

Mel + Dean's beautiful wedding at the Hotel Fort Garry

I can't believe it's just about been a month since Melanie and Dean's wedding.  This time of the year is such a blur at times, that if I don't force myself to stop and take it in, I find myself waking up to snow. 

Leah and I had such an amazing time documenting this beautiful wedding.  I have always said that I love shooting weddings here in Winnipeg because it has such a wide range of cultural and religious backgrounds, each with their own unique traditions. 

What I love even more is that these ancient traditions are now set against and updated with modern times.   

Some of my favourite parts of a Jewish wedding is the Bedeken ceremony and the Hora. Oh yeah - the Hora is wild. So awesome!!

It was a beautiful day, with lovely people against a gorgeous setting. Perfect. 

Here are a few images from their day.

Andrea + Grant's beautiful wedding at Bridges Golf Course

I had Andrea and Grant over last night for their screening and we had a great time remembering all the little things that we experienced on their wedding day.

It was an emotion filled wedding day and although it went by quickly - there is loads to remember and look back on with love and laughter. 

I absolutely love the outdoor ceremony location at Bridges and the beautiful reception has the perfect view of the rolling little hills on the course, as the sun sets.  

I am really looking forward to getting their album together.  It's going to be stunning! 

Here are a couple of frames from the day and if you have not seen their Highlights Slide Show - it's at the end of the post. 

PS - How amazing was Andrea's Vera Wang Wedding Gown?! Stunning!
