After Shoot Water Series, Kawarthas // Catherine + Vince

I really enjoy having after sessions with my clients. It allows them to slow down, relax and take it all in. The wedding jitters are gone and they can get a little more adventurous in their surroundings. Don’t get me wrong, I love adventure on a wedding day, but for those couples having a more traditional wedding, an after session can be a really fun thing.

Catherine and Vince had a beautiful wedding, but they also wanted to get some photos of them enjoying some of their favourite spots, in the Kawarthas. Our first stop was a small chapel that held a special place in Catherine’s heart. The chapel held a stained glass window, in memory of her late Grandfather. It was very special.

We followed the road to a quaint winery, where they sipped some wine and we wandered the property. I highly recommend it. =)

The day ended with a visit to Catherine’s families cottage, on Mississauga lake. Catherine and Vince entered the water and everything became magic. The way they held eachother and melted into eachothers arms was really beautiful to watch. There’s something about the layers of a white dress, under water. It has this very mysterious feeling to it. It really can’t be put into words. I want to shoot in water everyday….seriously it was the best.

Le Grand Lodge Wedding // Emily + Jesse ♥

Emily contacted me over a year ago based on the work I did at another wedding. She wanted me to be her wedding photographer and I couldn’t be more delighted! I also had the pleasure of designing her wedding stationery. I love being apart of the creative process of a wedding. It was so much fun to see her vision come together.

The wedding weekend took place at Le Grand Lodge, located in Mont Tremblant. Nestled between a beautiful green forest and a picturesque lake, friends and family gathered to celebrate their love. It was the perfect day. Thank you Emily and Jesse for being such an easy-going, awesomely fun couple and for allowing me to capture your special day. You really are such a great pair!

Over the weekend I…

Made two apple pies, had turkey, went on a walk through the forest, spent time with my family and went horseback riding. It was awesome! We closed up the cottage over the weekend, so it was bittersweet. I hate closing the cottage when it’s so beautiful up there, but we still plan on going up and staying with family. It just gets to cold to stay in our little cabin.

I hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving. I’m kind of sad it’s over. It always goes by way to fast. At least I have my birthday to look forward to and a girls weekend in Collingwood coming up. Here are some pics I took over the weekend!
