Alanna + Brad A Blush Pembroke Wedding

Alanna and Brad, I don’t know where to start with these two. When I first met them one evening at Starbucks, I was worried about a bad first impression because we couldn’t find a table. We moved over to the steps of the neighbouring bookstore. The steps, not even a table. As I continued to talk with the both of them, I could tell even still, Alanna was still so excited about the entire process. She said they didn’t even need to think, they wanted me as their photographer. To this day I am still so honoured with their trust in me.

The two are a shy couple, to themselves, modest, yet completely in love. It just emulates through them even though they don’t publicly display it. If you remember their engagement session, I’m SO glad it worked out the way it did. We were originally planning to go somewhere else, but I found this crab apple blossom forest and knew it was the place for them. Luckily, she agreed. On their wedding day, she was the understatement of relaxed. I’ve never seen anything like it. She had all of her blush wedding details all ready to go. The day flowed flawlessly despite of the rain that decided to try to get in our way. It didn’t.

Congratulations you two. I mean it with all of my heart that Max & I wish you the complete best in this life.

Engagement Sessions How to Prepare You & Your Man

Whether he just popped the question or you’ve been wearing that ring for a few weeks, a few months; I hope you’re still full of excitement and butterflies for the phase of life that you’re in right now. Maybe you’ve already secured your venue, and that’s a big step already done! Maybe you’ve booked your photographer, or you could still be looking. It’s time to figure out all the little details that come along to create your wedding day. This process includes your engagement pictures. Maybe this is overwhelming for you and you have no idea what’s in store and how to prepare for an engagement session.

how to prepare for an engagement session

Engagement sessions are my absolute favourite. It’s an excuse to dress up and spend some time with the love of your life, literally just loving on them. I also love to educate couples that the point of the engagement session is actually not frivolously just for casual photos! It’s actual purpose is to practice with the same photographer who will be photographing you on your wedding day, more than it is about the images (even though that’s an epic bonus). This is why it’s included; it’s an essential part of The Wedding Experience – it’s the sole reason I get the natural wedding day portraits that I do. It’s about connecting with your wedding photographer so that you’re relaxed and comfortable, and they know how to get the best side of you on your wedding day. Additionally, you know how they direct, you already know how to pose, and it makes the wedding day portraits go by so much sooner and get so many more!

Remember, the sun sets much earlier during the colder months of the year and much later during the warmer months, so make sure to factor that in when choosing your engagement session date, especially if you’re taking off work or have evening plans afterward. We’re only able to shoot when natural light is still in the sky, so we’ll want to take advantage of every minute we have together before the sun goes down. The sun waits for no one!

Choosing your location is actually endless. The first thing to decide is whether you’d like to feature your local area, or if you want to travel somewhere you know is beautiful; we’re always up for exploring a new spot together.

After choosing a location, the first step is choosing the outfits you want to wear. You should wear something you feel beautiful in but isn’t too fussy. Same for the groom, something he feels handsome in but isn’t too tight or uncomfortable. We always recommend 2 outfits as well, usually one that’s a bit more dressy and one that’s more casual.

Professional hair and makeup is on the top of most of our brides’ checklists because it looks amazing and removes the stress of getting ready on your own. Whether it’s lash extensions or blown-out hair, professional hair and makeup will give you an extra boost of confidence in front of the camera, and it always photographs like a dream. If you’re working with a makeup artist, have her apply your makeup in natural light, if possible, so that it looks fresh and not too heavy.

The last thing you should do to prepare for an engagement session is to have fun! The nerves may build up but always remember that the goal is for you to relax and have the best experience possible! There’s no expectations and you’re not suppose to know that to do! Your photographer should know how to show you the way, no matter who you are.

Even if you’re in the early stages of wedding planning, I’d love to chat with you to hear your ideas and thoughts for your dream wedding. Throw me an email, I can’t wait to grab a coffee with you and chat!

Sarah + Jean Blush & Gold NAV Centre Wedding

When the time leading up to Sarah + Jean’s wedding got shorter and shorter, I knew it would be a beautiful and happy day simply because of the laugher on this girl. If you read their engagement session blog post, you know she’s a giggler. There’s no way you can’t be happy around Sarah. She’s a planner, like me, so I knew the day would go off without a hitch. I just need to learn from her on the next part; laid back as the day goes on. This stunning blush and gold wedding was practically put together herself. Dreamy. I couldn’t get enough of the details. These two are so sweet and balance each other out perfectly. All the best to the new Mr & Mrs.

Lisa + Kyle Backyard Country Childhood Sweetheart Wedding

I remember the day they got engaged, we had a blast at their engagement session at the cottage, but even before that, I remember the day I found out they were dating. I thought to myself, “they know each other?!” Little did I know, I really didn’t know their back story. I graduated high school with Kyle; the long, dark, curly-haired kid with all the band t-shirts. Kyle’s locker was across the hall from mine in 7th grade and was my locker neighbour in 8th grade. I remember those middle school classes like it was yesterday, except it was 11 years ago. I never really “knew” Lisa, but I knew her name around the school. Little did I know, Lisa and Kyle had known each other their whole lives. Lisa and Kyle’s parents have been best friends before either of them were born. Kyle, being just 3 years old, visited Lisa in the hospital the day she was born. They grew up side by side at their cottage, and as her dad said during his speech, they really do have more of a foundation than any relationship could possibly have.

It is such a blessing to be at an age span to see my friends getting married, and more-so the honour of photographing them. I love how no one is surprised with what I’m doing in my life and has that faith in my photographing their weddings more than anyone because they’ve seen me in action all of high school. There are almost no photos of me in high school because I was always the one with the camera. Lisa and Kyle, it has been such an amazing time watching and helping you plan little things along the way. Congratulations on the most amazing, intimate day. Can’t wait to see what’s next for you two.
