For this gorgeous couples special event we fly to mexico. There in the warm sun we frolicked in the sand and took engagement photos before the big day. It was such a pleasure to be part of the group and witness these two tie the knot. I think all weddings should take place somewhere warm and relaxed. I don’t know what it is about destination weddings…is it the destination that makes it such a chill and relaxed wedding? or, is it the couples who are chill and relaxed that choose destination weddings? Either way, I love them because it’s sooooooo friggin relaxed!!!! None of the frenzy that comes with “local” weddings.
Shooting at the Gladstone is always fun because so far I’ve loved every one of my couples who got married there. Tory and Jamie are super cool! It’s nice…soooo nice to get to meet new people that you just like! Seeing these two get married was such a treat. You can just see how much joy they feel when they are together and how much they appreciate the others differences. I mean, just look at the reveal photos…Tory is REALLY excited to see Jamie for the first time on the wedding day and just can’t contain herself! She gets the prize for best reaction ever :P
What a trip. I truly didn’t know what to expect of Brazil. I’m a lucky girl to have had this opportunity to go and experience it with some wonderful people. Thanks Anna and Marcelo for having me! As you look through the photos you may be thinking to yourself…”this doesn’t look like brazil”. When I heard anna and marcelo’s wedding was to take place in brazil I got very excited with my own ideas of what brazil would be like. Marcelo realized what was happening and he said “wow wow..slow down…it’s probably not what you imagine. Sao Paulo is a big metropolitan city”. He also informed me that sao paulo is not a very safe place to be so we won’t be shooting in the city but in the park and by the hotel. I admit I didn’t really believe marcelo’s warning about the dangers until I went there and heard all the stories. What I loved most about my experience there was how hospitable the people are! They take it to the next level! I’ll always remember you guys!!!!!!!!! Come visit Toronto soon!
It’s crazy how unpredictable the world can be sometimes. Some of you will know that I shot these two on their wedding day some eons ago and that jess and i went to the same highschool. Who would’a thunk that we’d hang out at their house in Maui during our honeymoon. We had such an awesome time with them and got a better feel for how locals live there. We hiked, picnicked by the beach and went on walks with their puppy scout.
So amazed to have my very own wedding featured on style me pretty! Kinda surreal really. Thank you for the amazing feature! And a special thanks to my amazing friend and photographer claudia for shooting our special day. It’s amazing to come back from our honeymoon to this!
such an honor to have my work featured on stylemepretty.com so amazing! Check it out!
thank you susan and omar for being such a great couple before, during and even after the whole wedding process. It really means a lot to me! Susan, you have got to be one of my fave brides of 2012 :) I still drink your tea!!!! so yummy
ok ok…i know i’ve super duper neglected my blogging but i hope you can forgive me!
The husband I spent a blissful two weeks away in Hawaii and it was AMAZING! I had some reservations about going because it seems like the typical honeymoon destination and it’s true! every other couple there is on their honeymoon. However, there are so many things to see and do and eat that it doesn’t really matter. We ate amazing food (thanks to wifi and yelp) and we hiked some amazing hikes and swam with turtles. The sunrise there is truly fabulous. We were so excited to see the sunrise that we got up super early the first morning and went sunrise hunting and ended up on Big Beach. We were there with the huge ocean in front of us and with the beach to ourselves we faced the sunrise.
Alright folks! Here’s part two and this marks the “almost start” of our honeymoon…
WARNING: As I will be enjoying the sunny beaches in hawaii my response to emails will be at a halt until mid january. Thank you for your support and understanding.
We are off to our honeymoon in less than two weeks!
I am soooo thrilled to be rid of this dreary weather by replacing it with the beautiful sunny sandy beaches of hawaii. I apologize to everyone and anyone who have been to this site only to disappointed by the lack of new posts. I confess I have been hibernating and enjoying doing a bit of nothing. I only now awake from my reverie to share my wedding photos with you. Why did I take so long posting them? I confess I have no idea. Maybe it just felt too good to share but I shouldn’t be selfish because there were some amazing people that contributed to these amazing photos.
