it’s been a second folks.

hello from the editing cave. they let us out on the weekends to photograph weddings, then back in we go, hah. jk.

a few months ago i popped on here with a little recap of the first half of our 2017 wedding season, so it’s only fitting that i open up the ‘create new post’ tab & round out the story with the remainder of our year in photographs. we’ve been packing up the car, loading our stuff onto the train, more times than i can count; up to muskoka a handful of times, to niagara-on-the-lake and even out to ottawa, a first for us. the days have been sunny, and rainy, and sunny again; always beautiful.

i remember after a particularly long drive, opening the door, it was dusk and it was quiet, and that smell of the woods flooded my senses. i breathed it in, standing there in a perfectly regular parking lot, and felt calm and grateful. after all the planning and waiting that our couples go through to host their weddings, i can only hope they feel this same thing when they finally escape the city and start living what they’ve been dreaming.

we’re still chugging along, getting photos back to the lovely people we’ve worked with this year. here’s a little glimpse of what we’ve been up to these past few months.

chris & elizabeth’s day felt like a really cool party with a sweet and simple wedding ceremony that somehow just sneaked it’s way into the evening.

breathless was how i arrived to the subway with elizabeth’s side, after slipping & sliding along the benches of open-air military truck ride to the subway. dave walked the short distance from their condo to propeller coffee with chris’ side, the venue chosen after searching for somewhere that felt right and realizing their local coffee shop would actually be perfect. they included a close friend to help officiate their ceremony and spent the evening floating from friend to friend, eating amazing food and laughing/crying at the toasts given throughout the night. there wasn’t a forced or contrived moment all day.

our goal with every celebration we’re invited to document is to capture the way it felt. so we hope you feel the warmth of embraces, the energy of the people who brought life to this day, and that sense ease that comes with chatting away a perfect summer day into the cool night with those who feel like family.

we’ve walked through an empty trinity bellwoods park in the drizzling rain.

we’ve walked through a packed trinity bellwoods park in the bright sunshine.

we’ve cried into our cameras through speeches; we’ve driven through a hail storm; we’ve given out 654 bear hugs.

we’ve cuddled three cats and one dog.

we’ve eaten BBQ comfort food with ice cream for dessert, a delicious fully vegan & gluten-free meal, and the most amazing cauliflower ‘wings’ that dave still thinks about on a daily basis.

we’ve held on for dear life in the back of a military truck; we’ve danced on rooftops and walked through osprey reserves.

we’re loving the season so far and it’s only half over. here’s a bit of what it’s looked like so far.

enjoy a little bit of what we saw that beautiful summer day beside round lake.

two years ago we spent a couple weeks in the faroe islands, and it’s stayed with us.

one of our favourite trips & favourite places ever.

welcome to our journal.

soulmates, artists, travelers, people who love to smile, & people who love to document the stories around them.

we're taking just a few more wedding commissions for 2017 & we're starting to book for 2018 - please be in touch using the contact button in the menu.
