I’m excited to share my last wedding of 2011 on the blog today! Elisa had contacted me last summer after seeing Jade and Jared’s wedding photos and had originally booked me for August of this year (2012), but after some changes to their situation (will get into that later), they decided to re-book for December 30th of 2011. I’ll admit I was a bit nervous when she told me since it was going to be my first winter wedding, but I was up to the task and was interested to see how it would play out. Well, with the mild winter we’ve had so far, it actually worked out quite well! I call this my ‘winter-that-doesn’t-look-like-winter’ wedding, since there isn’t a flake of snow to be found. It was a lovely (but chilly -6C day), and everyone was so great toughing it out for the outdoor photPos (let me just say that we were QUICK!)
Patrick and Elisa were such a beautiful and sweet couple, their family and friends (especially the girls Chantal and Lindsey) were a lot of fun, and the day went off without a hitch (well, nothing major anyway) 🙂 They were married and had the reception at the Riverside Golf and Country Club in Rothesay (a beautiful location), and we took the outside photos at the Commons nearby and at the park across the streets from the club (can’t remember the name now!) It was a casual but elegant affair, and the fact that it was winter (and dark for most of it) made it all the more sparkly and pretty, (despite the photographic challenges, ha!)
Here are a few of my favourite shots from the day…
Isn’t Elisa beautiful? And would you have guessed that she was actually 19 weeks pregnant when these were taken?! Yep, that was the ‘situation’ I had mentioned before…they are expecting in the Spring! So happy for them 🙂
On a related note…
I am overwhelmed with the amount of interest in my wedding photography this year…honestly it wasn’t something I thought I would be doing much of, but I’ve been getting a ton of inquiries for this year and next, and I’m actually almost completely booked up for 2012! I’m so very grateful to everyone who has allowed me to be such an important part of their special day, and look forward to working with many more awesome brides and grooms in the future!
Up next, I’d like to share my first ‘official’ session of 2012, a fun snowshoeing session with a sporty little family!
