Ladda + Francis: Married

We're feeling a lot of heat today in Montreal but I'd like to go back to a day in early April when there were patches of snow melting away; my first couple to get married in 2017, Ladda + Francis. Ladda is a photographer as well, and very good! She knew what I was going through from behind the scenes and was incredibly accommodating and a breeze to work with. Francis is an incredibly kind and loving person, all of which I got to know in this limited but eventful day together. The importance he placed on Ladda's daughter had me tearing up - he knew he was coming into a family that had started before he arrived, and loves her insurmountably. It showed throughout the day how much she loves him too.

I'm thrilled to have been with this family from make up to ceremony, I wish them all the happiness they can find, congratulations to L+F!

Julia + Michael: Married

It's exciting back in the editing room when so many guests gave great real moment reactions throughout the course of the day. Julia & Michael are surrounded by some great people in their close circle; it's no wonder why they attract them either because they're both kind and exceptionally lovely human beings. I hope everyone I work with is as much as they are.

Being one of my last weddings of 2016 we struggled with maybe one aspect - how short the days are in October! As much as we plan in advance, weddings have a tendency to move at a pace of their own (as they should when everyone is having fun) but this left us with approximately 15 minutes for the bride and groom creatives (which I like to allot an hour for). Luckily, being as cool as they are, and their guests for allowing me to borrow them, we took full advantage of the sunset. It was worth it, folks! I always thank guests at times like these for being cool - have fun, enjoy your cocktails and mingles; these photos are lasting the couple a lifetime.

Another day full of colour, love, dancing and tears, a simply beautiful way to end my 2016 season!

Thank you J+M and congratulations to you both!
