Marta & Adnan - Ritz Carlton Montreal Wedding

Whenever I try to start off a wedding blog post, I'm at a loss. Completely. I try to be totally poetic, to capture all my viewers hearts. And yet I fumble, fall and come out with sentences that aren't even a full train of thought. Why do I struggle so HARD to present in writing what this couple is like... their personalities, their story. I suck at it. So why do I try!?! Because I want to give even more to my listener. To show you how truly beautiful these people are on the inside. To bring you into their story. And yet, time after time I'm at a loss for words. Then I step back and realize hey.... my job is not to write a story. My job is to CAPTURE their story. So ...how about we all stick to what we're good at and focus on that. 8 years into this storytelling business and I've only just figured that part out ;) 

 

 One thing I MUST absolutely say is how much I love this girl. At the end of the night, she and I both hugged each other and didn't want to let go. We got teary eyed. We told each other we loved each other and how happy we were to have met. That my friends.... was a true friendship...that actually started on.... you ready? PINTEREST. Yeup. I can't even lie about this one. She found my work on pinterest, all the way in Edmonton Alberta and the rest is history. (thanks pinterest!) How do you connect with a stranger though whom you've never met ? And I mean I'm the professional here...so I've got to keep things structured so she trusts me right? Wrong. We snapchatted, Instagrammed and quickly I realized this girl was a special one. Someone who, a lot like me, is a free bird who loves to laugh...even if at herself. As the weeks past I couldn't wait to meet her in person and get this show on the road. I'll stop talking and let the photos do the rest. 

Adnan and Marta, there's love and then there's being IN love. You both are enveloped in the love you've built together. Do not break away from that. It's beautiful, it's everything. Continue to dote after one another as I saw you do on the wedding weekend. You guys are an example to follow. A couple who I wish lived closer. Until then. Thank you for letting me be your photographer. I wish I could do it all over again!! xox

Kathryn & Ryan - The Royal Bromont Golf Club Wedding

Kathryn and Ryan. If there could be a definition of love involving two specific people... I do think it would be these two. I'm normally pretty good at holding back my emotions on a wedding day. It's my job to document... and therefore, I have to disconnect my emotions. That being said, it was tough. When I see a man cry.... I mean come on. Who doesn't get misty-eyed a little!? 

I for one am going to cherish these images for what they represent. A relationship full of admiration, overflowing with respect. They define love in a way that every girl dreams it could be when she gets older. And too, Kathryn and Ryan prove that love is alive and well after many many years together. Thank you both for teaching me so much in just a short 8 hours of celebration.

Jacquie & Chris - World Trade Center Montreal Wedding

I got to meet Jacquie and Chris first on Skype actually. It was an easy going convo as they told me all about their love of hiking and how they really just want to relax and enjoy the day. That's exactly how it all went down too. When I arrived at the Intercontinental Hotel in Old Montreal the energy in the suite was calm, yet bubbly. Jacquie was there with her sister and friends as well as her mom. Beautiful, excited and ready to put on her dress, nothing was chaotic just entirely peaceful. What a perfect way to start the day!

When it came time to go see Chris for their first look, Jacquie was excited and couldn't wait to get down to the World Trade Centers incredible fountain, which is right where he was, waiting for her. The day went off perfectly as we perused Old Montreal, stopping to capture their laughter and smiles. Even amidst the construction ;) 

As the night went on and everyone was seated for the ceremony, guests were all smiling just excited to witness their friends finally tie the knot. It couldn't have been a more beautiful location for such a beautiful couple. Thank you both for letting me be a part of your day...it was truly something else! 

 

A Special thanks to Michelle for referring me. Thank you for trusting in me darling. It means so much! xox Love you!
