I had the pleasure of shooting my friends Katie and Chris’ wedding a few weeks ago. The ceremony took place on the picturesque beaches of Georgian Bay, with the mountains and lake as our backdrop. The wedding came to be with only a few months of planning! Katie and Chris used their mad talent to design their own unique stationery and personalized every little bit of the wedding. You know I love good branding! With the love, help and generosity from friends and family, the Sweatman wedding was a perfect day.
Katie and Chris were so very fortunate to have friends offer their cottage, to host the event. And a lovely cottage it was! The location was the perfect spot for two very outdoorsy people, who met on the hills of Georgian Peaks (the very hills that were our backdrop). The wedding was simply elegant, natural, serene, beachy and most importantly full of love! Did I mention laughter? I don’t think I have ever met two more hilarious people than Katie and Chris. You can tell from the photos that their amazing personalities shine right through.
Thank you so much Katie and Chris for letting me photograph your special day and making me laugh and cry.
Another year has come and gone so quickly. It’s crazy to think of all the cool and fun things that I got to do last year. I am so grateful to have such amazing family and friends and the wonderful opportunities that I have been given. This Christmas holiday, I spent time with my family relaxing. Here are some pics from our Christmas weekend at the camp. I love the farmland that surrounds the camp. It’s so calming. Happy 2013 everyone!
This past Sunday was Remembrance Day and the most important part of my weekend was spending time with my grandfather and attending the Remembrance Day ceremony in Cambridge, Ontario. I think it’s very important that we take the time to thank of all the men and women that have sacrificed their lives, so that we can live in this beautiful and free country. It was great to see my grandfather place a reef on the Cenotaph, which he has been doing for years, with many of his comrades. Sadly, they are very few of these men left. The veterans were asked if they’d like to take a limo to the ceremony and they responsded with, “Heavens no. Those that can are walking.” It just comes to show you how devoted and amazing these men are.
Here are some photos I took during the ceremony. There were a lot of lovely speeches and it was packed. I love you grandpa. Thank you for all that you’ve done for me and this country. xoxoxo
I can’t tell you how lucky I am to have such amazing girlfriends. A few weekends ago, I went to my friends cottage, for a girls weekend in Collingwood. It was a cold and rainy weekend, but we love to chat! We cozied up to a “real” fire and sipped on Bengal Spice Tea. So yummy. If you haven’t tried it, try it! Thanks ladies for another wonderful girls weekend. Love you all!
