This love story is a little close to my heart, not just because Amanda is my niece but because her love story reminds me so much of my own. At a time in your life when you wonder if there really truly is that someone special out there a wonderful ‘prince’ comes along and scoops up the beautiful damsel in his arms and promises to not only love her but her children as well. Wes has loved them all so deeply.
I was happy to witness the immense amount of happiness that these two have and it is a real treat to watch Wes with those two little girls… he dove into the parenting with a huge heart full of love. I see great things to grow from this kind of love.
Congratulations Amanda and Wes.

It had been heavily overcast and quite gloomy with the days leading up to Lauren and Sheldon’s big day and there was a bit of scrambling to find some great indoor locations. Fast forward to last Saturday morning and I awoke to a wee glimpse of blue sky. It was going to be an amazing day… and THAT it was. Congratulations to such an awesome couple.

Such a sweet couple.
We met up for coffee at Starbucks and hit it off quite easily. This was not going to be the typical all day wedding gig.
They were happy to have their own time in getting ready for the big event and when I arrived at the Bride’s place for a few captures of her and her girls before heading off to the church I was surprised to find a calm, centered and beautiful bride, quite simply enjoying the quiet of her morning. Typical of Vanessa’s demeanor most of the day. I met up with Dave and the boys at the church… all smiles… nervous but super excited the day had finally arrived.
It was a fabulous day with some pretty amazing people and as always great to get to know another family as I shared much laughter and conversation at the Groom’s family table. Congratulations Vanessa and Dave and I wish you all the best in this new chapter, from what I witnessed it’s been an amazing story so far.

Such a sweet and fabulous couple these two are and they totally braved a cool and windy evening at Lake Bonavista for their engagement session. We had to leave the openness of the lake and nestle into the trees to escape the cold breeze so we could warm Vanessa up some. What a rockstar she was!! So into each other and so excited for their big day to come, it was awesome and we had so much fun getting to know each other! Can’t wait to capture your big day and I am confident the weather will be much warmer too.
