Sarah + Dave + 1

Today is the absolute perfect time to share Sarah + Dave's maternity shoot, which we did over the (Canadian) Thanksgiving weekend. Last night, they welcomed their little girl into the world! Happy and healthy, dark hair, a whole 7 pounds 9 ounces!

 You know I love an overcast day but even more than that I love endless quiet fields to play in. It got to a point where Sarah and I were wearing more mud on our feet than we were wearing boots, but it's all worth it.

We were also lucky to find a patch of sunflowers along the road. The owner of the property was more than generous about letting us take photos there. It's all part of my, "It'll never happen unless you ask" motto. Or you know, trespass, but luckily we didn't have to do that.

Congratulations to this mom and dad, who are going to be insanely loving and awesome parents!

Oriana + Adamo | Engaged

A few weeks back Oriana, Adamo and I met at Bice in Montreal before their engagement party to photo their spiffy attire and celebrate their wedding, which will take place next year!

Their cousin, the talented Fusion Photography, will be the photographer of their wedding day, and he's a lucky man to get these two in front of his camera - I was honoured to have them for the engagement party, especially since Oriana and I were photography students together back in the day!

We had a great time chasing light down Sherbrooke street, I was getting anxious with the sun dipping behind the high rises until we found a rooftop to play with.

Wishing them love, happiness, and thanking them for having me on this day!

Leanne + Taymaz | Married

You may remember Leanne + Taymaz won last year's engagement shoot during my winter contest, I was so thrilled that they were exactly as lovely all of their family and friends had said they were (everyone who had entered their names). I was even happier to photograph their wedding day - at the stunning la Gare Viger; a huge effort by so many talented wedding vendors.

It was not what I would call a normal day, with Hurricane Harvey having reached us bringing buckets of rain. But it's as I tell all of my brides and grooms in the event of a wet day, there are always options; beautiful photography can be born in low light which we may not have used otherwise. The main thing is to remember why you're all there. If rain bothered L+T, I did not notice it even for a second. The venue did not disappoint, the place was decked floor to ceiling in gorgeousness.

I saw moving moments between their friends and family that only a wedding can bring out in people. It was a pleasure to be present for it! Thank you endlessly L+T for a beautiful day!

Special thanks to Bianca Diorio for the help shooting with me!
