PWPC SPRING COMPETITION

Hey everyone! I’ve been so incredibly busy lately that I haven’t found enough time to blog. I absolutely do love this blog and appreciate anyone coming by to check it out and so I shouldn’t leave it lingering lonely in interwebs! A little while ago the Professional Wedding Photographers of Canada announced the winners for their spring image competition and I am so thrilled to say that I placed twice in this competition! I wanted to share both of those images today and send a shout out and giant thank you to the judges of the competition and PWPC.

Sunny Wedding in Collingwood

Jennifer & Nuno’s Sunny Wedding in Collingwood

 Jennifer & Nuno are a dream couple. When I first met them I was in awe of their sweet gazes towards each other and the way they walked holding hands and smiling at each other.  Whenever I asked them to tell me how they met or anything to do with their life together they would both give me a huge smile and excitedly tell me the story. I knew then that these two were made for each other. Fast forward to Collingwood and as I expected they showed me once again that they were head over heels for each other. The wedding was full of love from friends and family and Jennifer was sure to keep everyone entertained with sarcastic and confident remarks throughout the day. It was truly great. I am so thrilled to share the highlights from their Bear Estate wedding with you all today! Happy scrolling!

A Cambridge Mill Wedding

A Cambridge Mill Wedding

Amy & John are an amazing couple. The way they smile at each other and the joy on their faces when surrrounded by their family put me in a happy place while spending their wedding day with them this past fall at Cambridge Mill. I knew from my chats with Amy that she was super sweet and it turned out that both her and John were equally sweet and a lot of fun too. I really enjoyed every part of their wedding. I absolutely loved our bride’s hair and dress which looked both classic and glam at the same time. And our groom was looking super sharp so when they were paired hand in hand you would have thought they were a Hollywood couple. Bonus for me was that everyone at their wedding was so friendly and sweet and I got to hang out with a very cool and adorable toddler who just happened to be the son of our couple featured on the blog today. So let’s get right into the highlights of their wedding , shall we?

My favourite thing at weddings are those little moments…When a child is observing, the groom sheds a tear…the brides heart filled laugh. Those are the best things.
