Kaelin and Jordan's wedding in Niagara Falls. June 13, 2009.

Kaelin and Jordan were married at the Legends on the Niagara Golf Complex in Niagara Falls this past Saturday. Shawn and I jumped right in, getting busy with some fun detail shots, like Kaelin's shoes.....



....and the super pretty table settings in the reception room....





There was a hint of rain in the morning, but all cleared up, and the sky was gorgeous by the time the ceremony began. A friend provided live music for the entire proceedings.





Loved the hot pink and black colour scheme throughout the day!





Kaelin and Jordan were so in tune with each other the entire ceremony - I got quite a few of these private looks shared between them!





First kiss as a married couple - I love the way the wind grabbed Kaelin's veil just so in this image.





Immediately following the ceremony we gathered all of the guests together for a group shot.



After completing the family and wedding party shots, we stole away with the newlyweds for some portraits.

Love this sunflare shot that Shawn captured while I was shooting the newlyweds by the fence.






Ring shot, superhero style.



Kaelin also gets some props for carrying around her beautiful but huge bouquet for most of the afternoon. I held it for her a few times while we were setting up shots, and holy moly it was heavy!After finishing up our shots, it was back to the reception. Kaelin and Jordan had set up a mini putt on the dance floor. Anyone who wanted the bride and groom to kiss had to get a hole in one.

It was swarmed by a number of the kids in attendance who quickly set about improving their skills as fast as humanly possible. :) Kaelin and Jordan kissed alot. It was pretty cute.


A little later in the evening, we noticed the gorgeous sunset happening on the patio just off the reception room and snuck these two out for a few quick shots.


Finally, the first dance. So lovely.

Kaelin and Jordan, thank you for allowing us to take part in your day! We had a blast!

Kaelin and Jordan are married!

Shawn and I had so much fun at Jordan and Kaelin's wedding in Niagara Falls this past weekend! A full post will be up in the next few days, but until then, check out this sneak peek!

This is a variation on a bouquet shot we like to do with our brides - the ring bearer was so fantastic! (As you can see, he was just a little excited to be involved.)

Natalie and Scott - May 30, 2009

Natalie and Scott were married at Camp Kawartha this past weekend. It was a day of love and laughter, full of beautiful personal touches. I know that they are both eager to see some images, so prepare yourself for a long post!

We started out by taking pictures with family and the wedding party. The bride and groom decided to see each other before the ceremony, leaving us lots of time to have fun and be relaxed while we took portraits.


This group was tons of fun and up for anything! Stay tuned to the Facebook group for a picture of the whole group with a giant canoe. As I said, up for anything.



Then it was time to get ready for the ceremony, which took place right beside the waterfront. There were so many cute kids involved, it was ridiculous.



Scott and Natalie wrote their own vows, which made for a beautiful ceremony.



I especially loved the readings, including one from the Velveteen Rabbit.


After the ceremony, we stole away with the new Mr. and Mrs. for some fun portraits while guests relaxed before the reception.

Awesome ring shot, courtesy of Shawn.

Ring shot. Gangster style.



And do you remember the details I mentioned earlier? Um, yes - photographer heaven!
There was so much thought put into every detail and moment - I felt like everywhere
we turned there was something to take a picture of!

From the flowers....


...to the shoes...


...to the cake...


...to the table settings...

...to the wishing tree guest book...




...to the self serve cookie bar.


Finally, I may have mentioned it once or twice in a previous post, but I LOVE dance floors. Shawn and I always have so much fun when we get to stay a little later and capture the candid moments.







And finally, one last shot of the newlyweds...


To Natalie and Scott - thank you so much for allowing us to spend the day with you. Wishing you both a lifetime of love and laughter!

Thank you so much for visiting the blog - don't forget to leave a comment!
