I met Shannon and Andrew over a year ago at a small Tim Hortons. We discussed our visions for wedding photography and  hit it off. I was SO excited at the thought of getting to shoot their wedding. Shannon had a ton of do it yourself ideas and “candid and real” photos were their favourite. I was THRILLED to get the email from them asking me to be their photographer!

Their day was exactly what I thought it would be – a day full of laughs and SO many fun people! I felt  energized by just how happy everyone was throughout the day.  A big thank you to Christine from Love Bunny Photography for helping me out! Here is a small sampling of the fun that was had:

Shannon looked radiant and she was so relaxed right from the start. It took a while for her to get tied up into her dress and I love how all the girls broke into cheers and clapping when they finally had her corset done up correctly! Andrew also sent a very sweet gift and note for Shannon to read before she headed off to the church.

The bridal party photos were a BLAST. This group was up for anything. It was cold and windy and I didn’t hear any complaints! I even got some tips from them about how to keep bridal parties happy and cooperative (I’ll be investing in a cooler…). The only rules during the leaf fight was “no wet leaves thrown at the bride!”. They took this fight very seriously (the girls were using their dresses to collect a good amount of ammunition). I love these photos!

I wasn’t sure if we’d actually have fall colours this late into the season. We were so lucky they were still around and so vibrant!
