Their families and friends helped create a picturesque wedding at her parents’ farm on a beautiful day in Truro, N.S. White tents, barn ceremony, an abundance of fresh flowers, and a bbq dinner made it a perfect country wedding. When I first arrived back in N.S. a few days before the wedding, I was getting anxious about the weather because it was a constant downpour. I kept thinking, farm wedding + downpour = mud!! However, when Morgan and I woke up that Saturday the sky was clear and the sun was hot! We had a great day ahead of us!

We started the wedding day at 7:30am at the River Run Golf Course with some of the groom’s party. While they golfed through the morning sun, the bride’s party were at Life Salon downtown Truro getting their hair and make up done, and having their morning coffee. Once they were dolled up they headed back to the farm to put on dresses and keep cool in the house while guests arrived to the barn. Hay stacks were laid out for guests to sit on, and mason jars full of flowers decorated the aisle. The colour theme was pale pink and the bridesmaids’ dresses matched the flowers stunningly. As she walked down the aisle on the arm of her father, you could see the groom’s smile grow bigger and bigger the closer she came.

The reception had many laughs and happy tears as the best man and maid of honour spoke for the bride and groom. The tents were filled with flowers, teacups, wood centrepieces and adorable chalkboards. Cotton candy and popcorn were put in snack sized bags for the guests, and nanaimo bars and brownies were brought out for dessert. For the first dance, Morgan suggested it take place out on the field as the sun was setting perfectly over the hill. It was a magical moment with the music flowing through the fields and the guests gathered around to celebrate Shauna and Jeff’s perfect day.

Thank you Shauna and Jeff for having me as your wedding photographer, it was so much fun and I wish you both all the best!

    WOW, this was the first time I’ve seen the wedding pics. What an amazing event! Fabulous in every way.ReplyCancel

Jalen and Matt are fellow Tsawwassenites, growing up in the small town south of Vancouver. In high school, they had both been involved in theatre as well as the annual musicals. I became friends with Jalen through the school choir, and I had known Matt from elementary school french immersion. It’s been 8 years since high school graduation and I hadn’t seen either one of them since, as everyone goes their separate ways (I moved across the country… and then back!). However, as most can agree, Facebook kept me updated on most important details such as them coming back together! And they couldn’t be more perfect. Both actors, both musically inclined, and both kind hearted with incredible wit. They were a breeze to photograph, naturally poised with each other, and I’m excited to share these images!

We shot at a few places around Granville Island, ending at the stairs (image below). There are so many great colours, textures and backgrounds in Granville Island, I could have kept shooting for hours scouting out new places! It’s definitely a popular photo destination spot in Vancouver (there was even another photographer with a couple beside us by the docks). Despite it being a popular place, there are an abundance of beautiful secluded spots that you can find.

I’m so happy to be back in Beautiful British Columbia. I can’t believe how much I truly missed the scenery and greenery of this province, and how amazed I am every day when I wake up, look out my windows and see the surrounding mountains.

Thanks to my fantastic assistants:)

It has always amazed me in Nova Scotia that everyone knows everyone. The theory of six degrees of separation could be condensed to three degrees for anyone who has ever lived in Nova Scotia. Shauna was given my name through another photographer, and when I mentioned to my husband that I was heading down to meet with her in Truro a few months ago, he immediately recognized the name and told me that not only did they live just up the street from his family, but his sister and Shauna had been childhood friends! It’s cool to see how people are connected, and it really is a small world.

I was looking forward to this shoot for quite a while as it was my first time photographing an engagement session on a farm. I could probably count the number of times I have actually been to a farm on one hand (three times being within the past year in Nova Scotia). I grew up in suburbia outside of Vancouver, BC, where dogs were the extent of animal life, so this was super exciting for me. Especially because they wanted some photos with the cows, and this was my first introduction to a cow! They were friendlier than I thought they would be and they were giving me a few good poses in front of the camera.

When we originally scheduled this shoot, it called for rain and freezing wind (…at the end of April! What’s up with that Nova Scotia?), so we rescheduled a couple of times until we took a bit of a chance on a cloudy day. We definitely lucked out with the weather, it was about 16 degrees which let us shoot for over an hour without anyone getting cold. We shot on a few spots throughout the farm which was great for all of us because it will be the location of the wedding too! The sun was going in and out of the clouds creating different lighting situations, and as it was starting to set we headed up to the gravel pit as our last location and we caught incredible colours in the sky.

Shauna and Jeff’s wedding will be another wedding that I will be flying from Squamish to photograph in Truro, and I can’t wait to see what the farm will look like!

 

I met Megan over a year ago when we talked about doing some photos for her graduation. Our schedules didn’t work out and other commitments came around so we didn’t end up shooting. However, about 6 months later she emailed to say she was getting married! So I got to meet Robbie and photograph their engagement session before I left for Squamish, BC. I will also be photographing their wedding in August, so I get to come back and visit!

My husband had already taken our car across the country by the date of their session, so they kindly picked me up from other shoot and drove us to Glen Arbour Golf Course. On the way out to Hammonds Plains, the car suddenly came to a slow roll and we had run out of gas! Turns out they were too excited about the shoot, they forgot to stop at the gas station beforehand :). Luckily, (because it’s Nova Scotia) within 2 minutes someone had pulled over to help us get the car into a safe position on the side of the road and to drive Robbie to the nearest gas station and back (Thank you!!). While Robbie was working on getting us back on the road, Megan and I took some shots to catch the fading sun.

Even though we lost the sun into the clouds by the time we got to the golf course and started shooting, we were able to get some awesome shots that have a certain feel to them that I absolutely love! The complete overcast during sunset created deep beautiful colours in the landscape. It was a little cold with no sun and a bit of wind, but Robbie did a great job of keeping her warm in his arms.

They are an adorable couple and I can’t wait to come back and shoot their wedding!

The most fantastic part about having a best friend who’s a model, is that you get to test out different lighting setups just for fun! I very rarely shoot boudoir photography as TF work because I want to keep my portfolio as “genuine” as possible. I want my boudoir clients to look at my portfolio and know that the women they see are not models who know how to pose in front of the camera. Having said that, in the beginning I did shoot a lot of boudoir TF work to really understand the genre and practice. But now that I am comfortable with the way I shoot, I make an effort to not show clients my printed portfolio with images of models. I love that I can tell them that the women they see had the same apprehensive feeling of shooting a boudoir session for the first time. I can tell them that they also didn’t know how to pose, or what face to make. I am able to show them that every woman can create stunning images and come out of the session proud and feeling beautiful.

In this case, I couldn’t say no to a fun session with Carlyn. We have been friends since preschool back in our little home town, Tsawwassen, BC and she has been my trusty assistant on many of my boudoir sessions. She has been building her portfolio as a model and wanted to add a boudoir genre. This gave me a chance to play with some lighting setups which I always enjoy! (What photographer doesn’t…)

If you would like to book Carlyn for a shoot, she can be found through City Models.
