Heather + Andrew's stunning wedding at Cielo's Garden, Manitoba

I met Heather and Andrew for the first time the morning of their wedding...

It was clear from the first few seconds that they were good people. Those people that care and give till they are empty, and then give some more.  It was a great pleasure to spend their wedding day with them, meeting their family and joking around with their friends.  A wedding should be mostly about that - spending time with family and having fun with friends. Not stressing about one strand of hair that's out of place, the bottom of your dress picking up some leaves or that the ceremony might be early or the food served a bit late.  Who cares?? 

Two families are becoming one, two lives joining. Their happiness and love is all that matters in the end.

This was one of those weddings. I loved every second of it and am happy to share a few of my favourite frames.

Just worth mentioning as well that it was my first time shooting at Cielo's Garden just South of Steinbach.  As you can see from the photos - an amazing place and I look forward to many many more weddings out there!!

PS> Also worth mentioning was that I had the most delicious roast I have ever had in my life - anywhere!! Smoked for what tasted like days...

Jillian + Sean's West Hawk Lake Engagement Session

I had Sean and Jill over the other day for their screening and it was fun to sit together and relive our little adventure in West Hawk Lake.  I love that Jillian walked around barefoot.  It suited the area, and her so much.  What I loved most about the entire session was the clear and positive energy of mutual respect between them. So gentle with each other. A beautiful thing.

If I could shoot out in the bush, trees, mountains and beach every day I would be a very happy man. Mmmm - maybe a goal worth writing down.

I absolutely LOVE the photos we ended up with and can only dream of what we will capture on their wedding day.

Family and Friends can view all the photos in their online viewing gallery.
