Ashley & Kyle

Where do I begin? This day was beautiful in every detail from beginning up until the end. I captured the most images at this wedding than ever before and that is saying something. Then I had to go through them all and decide which ones would stay, not an easy task in itself.

These images are a mere glimpse of the entire day.  Ashley & Kyle were fantastic to work with and I think it shows in their images. They set enough time aside for us to not only capture a bunch of images at St.Andrew’s Cathedral where they were married.  We also went to the Ford Museum, the Civic Auditorium , the Amway Hotel and then spent time on the property at Cascade Country Club. It was a photographer’s dream.


Karen & CJ’s White Winter Wedding

Karen & CJ are a fantastic couple that are up for anything.  Their wedding took place during one of the many artic blast snowstorms this winter.

Even the extreme weather conditions did not get them down. All they could do was think about was marrying each other.  My heart melted.


Their ceremony took place in the City Flats Ballroom…which is gorgeous by the way. Between the hugh ceilings, detailed arches and beautifully

tiled floor; everywhere you turned was a beautiful backdrop waiting to be captured.  You would never guess it was snowing as much as it was

by looking at some of the outside images. Thank goodness for heated sidewalks! We popped into the Amway Hotel lobby for a few pics

before we headed to EVE for the reception.  Since we were smack dab in the middle of winter and the days were short,

we had decided to do a post wedding session the following week. We even went icing skating…. seriously, love these two.


I know there is a risk having your wedding in the winter and a lot of things did change last minute due to the extreme weather condition.

Once the guests arrived and these two bacame Mr. & Mrs. …all you could do was see the beauty as their beginning began to unfold

in this White Winter Wonderland.


All the best and many blessed years together!
