Krista & Phil | Elegant Uptown City Wedding [Saint John, NB]

Oh, this wedding. It was one of those days where everything just fell together perfectly; it was smooth, easy, lovely, and so, so NICE. And the craziest thing about it was that I only met the couple that day! They live in Newfoundland so we weren’t able to meet up before the big day but as soon as I met Krista and noticed her bright, beautiful smile and sweet personality, I knew my day was going to be a good one, and I was right. I then met Phil just a few minutes before the ceremony and immediately noticed his confident, assured demeanor (being a police officer will do that to you), and knew my day was going to be a good one, and I was right 😉

Everyone looked STUNNING (like, wow), and the early October day was perfect weather-wise. Being my last wedding of the year (and coming off a couple weeks off), I felt refreshed, invigorated, and creative, and these models indulged my every idea. The love was palpable, and my heart fluttered all day long (those dance photos at the end are some of my favs ever, ever, ever.)

Thank you Krista and Phil for the spectacular day, you highlighted for me why I love being a wedding photographer.

Sweet Baby Stella | New Brunswick Newborn Photographer

I love unexpected surprises! Stella’s mom messaged me shortly after her little one was born, asking if I could fit her in for a newborn session and luckily I was able to (I always prefer to have a few month’s notice, but it’s NOT necessary to book with me!) When she came in and I saw all of her hair I was blown away, what a little beauty! Zamantha asked whether it would be ok for her mom (who was visiting from Mexico) to come in to get a photo with the baby and of course I was pleased to do it, it’s so special to have a photo of baby, mama and in this case, abuela 🙂  I will be photographing her again at 1-year, I cannot wait to see how much her hair has grown by then!

Everyone, meet sweet baby Stella.

Sweet Baby Shea | New Brunswick Newborn Photographer

Ok, there’s just something about babies with hair, isn’t there? The cuteness factor just goes up about 30% at least! Shea looked NOTHING like his big sister Anna as a newborn (I photographed her waaaay back in the day), but they reminded me so much of my own babies (who looked nothing alike), that I felt an extra little twinge of nostalgia holding him…babies are magic like that, and I feel so lucky that I get to work with as many of them as I do. Anna was keen to be a model as always and I’m so thankful to Brittany and Eric for their support over the years, it means so much to me. (Geez, the end of the year always gets me emotional!)

Everyone, meet sweet baby Shea.

Sweet Baby Luca | New Brunswick Newborn Photographer

Oh, this little boy, what a darling he was! When Jenny contacted me to let me know that she was expecting her 2nd baby and wanted me to document it the same I had 2 years ago with big sister Vera, I was thrilled; Jenny is the type of person who will chat with you as if she has known you forever, she’s so genuine and friendly, I was looking forward to catching up. After a lovely spring maternity session out in their neck of the woods, Luca arrived in the fall, looking quite a bit like his sister, and was just as sweet. I can’t wait to watch him grow up (SO thankful for IG so that I can keep up with all my babies!!)

Everyone, meet sweet baby Luca.

Kayla & Ryan | Country Backyard Wedding [Berwick, NB]

My first wedding of the Fall season was spectacular, period. After a couple much needed weeks off, I was eager to return to to the world of weddings, and this one did not disappoint. The weather was typical a-bit-too-hot for September weather, the couple was friendly and kind, their daughter provided a ton of personality and laughs, the wedding party looked stunning and the entire backyard-country feel was just what I needed (oh, and the reception shenanigans were hilarious). I love these casual (yet elegant) affairs so, SO much. What a way to kick of my favourite time of year, thanks Kayla and Ryan!
