Winnipeg Church Wedding

Mark & Gillian planned a beautiful church wedding. When we first met, Gillian was apologetic about the church gym that their reception was going to be held in but I quickly assured her that it was completely unnecessary to feel bad about it. I do not choose which weddings I take based on venue. The people I am photographing are what make the photos beautiful to me.

Winnipeg Legislative Building Fall Wedding

My sister-in-law Lindsey first asked me to be her bridesmaid and then asked if I could also somehow do her wedding photos. It’s not the first time I’ve been asked to do this and even though I knew how much work it would be on her wedding day, I said yes. This time, I knew I could enlist the help of my own sister, and trusted second shooter, to photograph the portions that I couldn’t. It was a lot of work directing photos while also being in them, but it worked and I’m so happy with how everything turned out. Kendra did an amazing job of the ceremony and reception and I got to enjoy myself as a bridesmaid for those portions of the wedding. While you’re scrolling, you’ll want to take special note of the adorable ring bearer and flower girl…those are my kids and I just about burst with pride watching them come down the aisle.

I’m so thrilled that Lindsey & Marshall found each other. I think they are a pretty perfect match. Enjoy!

Manitoba Lakeside Camper Lifestyle Session

There are no words for how freaking cute this camper is. Kendra and Nolan aren’t half bad either. :) They bought this little camper for $500. It was total garbage but they gutted it and completely re-did it and it is so adorable. They have lived in it for a couple of summers. Like LIVED in this camper, May-September. You should really follow @kendradeanne on instagram for all the juicy details and cute camper instas. We went camping on Hecla Island for the weekend so obviously we had to end the session at Sunset Beach. Enjoy!

private island Lake engagement session

When you have a cabin on a private island on a beautiful lake, it’s kind of a no-brainer to do your engagement session there. I wanted to stay forever. These two and their pup hopped on paddle boards for a bit and we ended the session with some gorgeous shots that I took from a kayak. Enjoy!

kenora couples session

Allen & Janessa have been married almost 8 years! Clearly they are still very much in love! The sweetest thing about my job is watching my couples relax into each other as we shoot.

We headed to kenora with zero specific locations in mind. Allen & Janessa trusted me to just make it up as we went and it went WELL! We followed our noses and found these amazing locations, had a ton of fun and captured way too many photos for them to know what to do with. It was a fantastic evening and we ended the night with a delicious dinner by the lake. Enjoy!

Pinawa Dam Engagement Session

Mark & Gillian asked for suggestions for their location for their engagement session and I immediately suggested a few places FAR from Winnipeg. lol. They were like YES!!! The Old Pinawa Dam was their favourite suggestion so we headed out there and basically just explored and frolicked around on the rocks for an hour. These two were such a blast and I’m really looking forward to their wedding at the end of December!
