I love interior design, so when the talented Monkia Hibbs asked if I would shoot her baby girls nursery reveal, I basically got off the phone and ran right over! The room literally took my breath away, especially the flower wall paper! I not super girly, but I was in love with that perfectly pink girls room.

Ken and I always love destination weddings. It gives us a chance to shoot in beautiful new locations and we get to meet fabulous people from around the world, like Lynn and Matt. They pick an amazing venue for their wedding, The Naka, in Phuket, Thailand. I fell in love with the modern, minimal design and the fact that each room comes with an infinity pool was the icing on the cake!

Wedding Bliss Thailand (my fav group of girls who I highly recommend) planned their day and it was perfect from beginning to the end. Which ended with fireworks over the ocean just for them. How romantic is that!

Shout out to Jon who helped us shoot this wedding. I was 8 months pregnant and I wasn't sure how the Thailand heat would effect me so we brought someone with us. Turns out I was fine (I wasn't going to let a baby bump or 40 degrees weather slow me down ;) but it was lovely to have another traveller and talented photographer with us. It also meant we could order more dishes of Thai food ;)

It was a long wait, but we are so happy to finally be able to share this amazing wedding that is featured in Wedluxe Magazine on news stands now, with a 7 page spread!

Helia had a vision for her dream wedding and she pulled together a dream team to make it happen! If you love old-world glamour combined with romance and timeless elegance, you will love this wedding! Helia did not over look any details. From finding the perfect dress (after trying on 80!), delivering the most breathtaking invites, to adding original details like a LOVEBALL seating chart...oh and we can't forget that cake. There was literally over-the-top eye candy everywhere you looked. It was one wedding that no one would forget.

See their wedding on the Wedluxe blog.

Blossom season has to be one of our favourite times for engagement photos, everything looks so pretty and romantic. But when you're photographing Michelle and Jon, I think we could have done it anywhere and it would have turned out pretty and romantic (and pretty darn fun). These two are just the best, complete gems, inside and out.

Barcelona is one of those cities that just has soul. Every time I go, I love visiting the hole-in-the-wall haunts that I discovered on previous trips...and then wandering the streets to find some new gems.

It was so lovely to walk these streets with the Truvelle crew, shooting for their third season.

After only dating for while, Kristin and Alex decided to take the plunge and move to Punta Mita Mexico together. It was there they fell in love, so it’s only fitting, years later, that they brought their closest friends and family (including their fur baby) back to this beautiful place to witness them say, “I do”.

I was so honoured that they asked us to join them to capture the experience. It was a week full of sun, tequila, late night dancing, boys fishing trips and girl pool parties at a pretty sweet villa. These photos I’ll leave up to your imagination ;)

But what I will share is the most beautiful and heartfelt ceremony under a tree on the beach. Plus, some loved fill photos of one of the most thoughtful, sweet and in love couple I know... (not to mention pretty damn good looking ;). But let me get back to how sweet they are. When I say sweet, I literally don’t think I know a more lovely and sweet person than Kristin. She’s one of those people that makes you happy just being around her. I think you’ll see that in the photos, her genuine energy just radiates through her beautiful smile. Enjoy!

Shooting at the Hycroft is always a dream, especially when you have a dream team such as ours!

Here are three styles of dresses that are trending for 2016. I love that crop tops have found they’re way into the wedding world and I simply adore the Remington Haley Paige dress with the neutral bodice. (Oh, I want to get married again!)

Oh where to start, there are so many wonderful moments and memories about this wedding. Perhaps finding a field full of the friendliest sheep or taking a helicopter to the New Zealand mountains looking for the perfect place to say “I do”, or after the ceremony landing in a lavender field at sunset (pure magic).

Our hearts were pumping with excitement during all these moments and we felt so lucky that we couldn’t even believe it was happening, it was all too perfect. These beautiful moments will be with us for a lifetime.

But I think what makes this wedding so special are the before and after moments. The skype dates with Carlie and Eddie in Macau, months before their elopement. Together we planned details to make their elopement personalized, such as colour scheme, flowers, invites, locations, etc. It felt so special that they trusted and included us in this process of one of the most important days of their life.

The following days, we traveled the New Zealand countryside together, partaking in MANY wine tours and delicious meals together. This couple, who were complete strangers living on the other side of the world, soon become fast friends. Carly and Eddie are both so thoughtful, generous, adventurous, and live life to the fullest… I know we’ll see again. It’s this quality time getting to know our couples, that makes us love elopements SO much!
