{Nadine + Kelvin’s wedding continued, you can check out part 1 here}

The ceremony was confirmed to be outdoors and the staff and co-ordinators worked quickly to get all the details perfect before the guests arrived.

The Carriage House at Cambium Farms offered the perfect spot to grab a drink and warm up.

We had been looking forward to their wedding all summer, this was a special wedding for us as you may have read previously, Nadine is Alicia’s younger sister and the only wedding that we photographed this season. ( I did assist quite a few other talented photographers, but chose not take on more wedding clients and enjoy a sort of maternity leave with our second daughter Heidi )

The forecast called for rain and the clouds were low and moody but the rain held off and it was an absolutely beautiful day.

The last time we saw this little monkey she was just a baby!

We were thrilled when Nadine approached us with the happy news of her engagement to Kelvin and so excited that they chose us to document their big day. We had the pleasure of photographing her sister’s wedding (Alicia) in 2012 and it means so much to us when we get the opportunity to photograph the same family again.

We spent a hot and sunny morning in Guelph, picking up some goodies at the market, playing frisbee at the university and walking along the river. Guelph is so beautiful! Can’t wait to come back soon :)

Here’s part 1 of 2 (there were just too many favs to include them all in 1 post!)

I love spring, the air is fresh and change feels so good. After our crazy long winter, this spring is feeling especially sweeter! Amina decided she wanted a change and this is what she went with:

She absolutely loves her new cut!

And I love seeing her so confident in herself.

I’m so happy that I followed my curiosity, that I wasn’t scared of failure, that I first picked up a camera and decided that I would do whatever it takes to learn to create beautiful images. Today and tomorrow and 20, 30, 40+ years from now I know this feeling will only intensify. Because of them:

Amina- “mom it looks like a crown, she’s a princess”

Because I can freeze time for a second, document what I see and create a back-up for my memories (let’s face it I’m the most forgetful person ever)! And because of our beautiful clients, the families that come to us with their stories, their love and we have the privilege of freezing time for them too :)

When was the last time you took time for family photos?

(And speaking of family photos… I know we really really need to update the Meet Us page! I can’t wait for spring to come)
