vineyard wedding

new sample albums!

In preparation for The Wedding Co. Spring Event tomorrow, I ordered some brand new sample albums to have at my table. Just in case you get as excited as I do by pretty new things, I thought I'd share a glimpse inside both books. The first is a sample my new Linen-bound offering. I ordered a 10x10" slate linen cover with white debossing, white core between the pages, as well as white ribbon. All of the above can be customized to your taste. I was very honoured to use some favourite images from the outrageously beautiful wedding of Lesley & Graeme from this past summer.

 I like that these albums begin with single-spreads, so you can kick of the album with a thematic image to set the tone or colour palette. This would also be a good place for an image of your wedding invitation to share the key details of your day.

A few of my favourite spreads from this album:

I also placed an order for smaller scale book to show some favourite images from my engagement portfolio. I just started offering these Premium Flat albums this spring, and am really excited to be able to offer a slightly more modest and lightweight alternative to my other albums. I envision the Premium Flat albums as a perfect option for printing your engagement session to be kept as-is or signed by friends and family as your wedding guestbook. It is also a great style of album to give to your parents

These albums are available in linen (gold linen, pictured below), leather, leatherette, or an image wrapped around the album as a front/back cover. They have vellum sheets at both ends to for extra elegance and protection, and much like the Linen-bound album above, the pages lay flat. 

Both types of books really shine when you see a double-page spread with virtually no gutter between pages.

Hope to see you at The Wedding Co. Spring Event tomorrow at the Gladstone Hotel!

They were married in between thunderstorms. On the morning of their wedding, it rained cats and dogs. In the evening, once their guests were tucked into the cozy confines of the party, the sky lit up again with an hours-long lightning spectacle. But in between the bouts of extreme weather, the sun came out and shone upon their union. Amy and Derek, two people who are strong in every sense of the word, joined their lives in the middle of a vineyard in the late summer heat.

When my longtime friend Amy found Derek, I immediately saw that this was her partner for life. They push each other to pursue their highest dreams and ambitions, and remind each other to take breaks and have fun despite their intense careers. I'm so happy my feisty, headstrong, loving, sassy and kind-hearted friend with the one-in-a-million personality has found her match in a man that is calm, thoughtful, and funny as hell. It was such a pleasure to see two lovely people and their loved ones come together and celebrate as one big family.

Amy and Derek, thank you for having me as your photographer. I am so happy for you guys and it was amazing for both me and Brian to get to share in all the excitement while documenting your day. Wishing you all the happiness in the world!

Their ceremony was in the middle of a vineyard at Cave Spring Cellars. It was breathtaking.

We travelled to Inn on the Twenty for their elegant and intimate reception.

During the party, we snuck away for a few moments for portraits in the wine cellar.
