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!

Ashgrove Acres Wedding

Zach & Mercedes planned an elegant, woodland themed wedding on what turned out to be an incredibly beautiful Manitoba day. After getting ready in their newly (almost) renovated home, the girls drove out to meet the guys at Bird’s Hill park and after a quick first look with the love birds, we had a blast photographing the wedding party and couple against that gorgeous forest backdrop. The ceremony and reception were held at the gorgeous Ashgrove Acres (located just south of Winnipeg) and everything was perfect. Their dessert reception was not only appealing to the eye, but just as delicious as it looked. The donut wall was a hit and after some heartfelt speeches, a little dancing and lot of fun with their guests, the couple was sent off with sparklers to their happily ever after. Enjoy!

Interlake Adventure Engagement

We started off with a plan. We loaded the canoe, and headed to the rock quarry that always had this beautiful, clear, blue water and limestone and forest all around. But you should have seen our faces when we showed up the the whole quarry was completely dried up. But Steve and Leah are just the type of couple that can make the most of any situation, so we told the story, and took photos in the dried up quarry. We had some fun with it and then headed out to find some other body of water to use. In the end, this shoot became a favourite. Adventurous, fun and romantic. Just the way I like em’.

morley & nicole | family

This family session was everything. Nicole rented this beautiful vintage couch from The Vintage Nest which added an extra element to the shoot. And that beautiful dark green background gets me every time. I just love the way this family pops off that background. But what really makes this shoot beautiful is this family, aside from their obvious good looks, they are just a fun, loving family and I just love how it shines through their photos.
