Cielo's Garden Wedding

Dave & Angelica planned a gorgeous wedding at Cielo’s Garden just outside of Steinbach. They went with some fabulous vendors and it was the perfect mix of classic and just the right amount of rustic. It was a beautiful overcast day with patches of rain but not enough to put a damper on this beautiful wedding.

Utah Boho Desert Elopement

Guuyyyyyssss how cool is this styled elopement!!?! I love boho weddings and don’t get to do enough of them for my taste. BUT this styled boho elopement in the desert was SO gorgeous. Plus these two were just the cutest. We trekked out through the desert, down the most beautiful path, to get to this location. It’s unlike any place I’ve ever shot before and new places always inspire me. Enjoy!

Australian Highlands Backyard Wedding

This wedding was too good to be true. A stunner of a couple, open-air backyard wedding, super fun wedding party, gorgeous details, and all in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales, Australia. Ainslie and Keith did an amazing job of planning their day with the help of so many family and friends. I can’t thank them enough for bringing me out from Canada to document their day. As I’m sure you know, I LOVE travelling and exploring new places. It gives me so much inspiration and I think Keith and Ainslie benefited from my excitement about their country and the gorgeous backdrop of their wedding. (The summer temperatures didn’t hurt either!!)

Enjoy!

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!

Fort Garry Hotel Wedding

I’ve been wanting to shoot a wedding at the Fort Garry Hotel in Winnipeg since I started shooting weddings. It’s just so elegant and I don’t think you could take a bad photo in this gorgeous building. Brad and Tanys chose this iconic location to finally tie the knot after 15 years and 3 kids. It was the perfect way to celebrate their marriage. Enjoy!

Intimate Backyard Riverside Wedding

I love backyard weddings…but backyard weddings on beautiful fall days beside a river…that’s ideal. The fall colours were really showing off and if Shauna’s epic bouquet didn’t steal the show, their beautiful little girl certainly did. Enjoy!

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!
