Amanda & Darrell's Woodsy Engagement Session // St. John's Wedding Photographers

0018blog AD.jpg

When you find out that the girl you like is actually single, you hold her close and don't let go. 

Amanda and Darrell got engaged over the holidays and their blended family will soon be official! Before the wedding planning begins however, they went on an adventure in the woods to the spot where their future home will be built. (How adorable is that by the way?!)

We trekked into the trees for a campfire (you know me- I wear hiking boots when I work so I'm always ready to go), staying cozy in a quilt Darrell's grandmother made and drinking hot chocolate. The kids soon joined us for a little skate, and I was definitely NOT jealous that a 7 year old is better on the ice than I am ;) 

Congratulations on your engagement Amanda & Darrell! Thanks so much for having me! xo

Jess and Colin's Engagement Adventure on Bell Island // St. John's Engagement Photographers

Friends since the 7th grade who finally fell in love in university, leaving all their friends practically yelling "ABOUT TIME!" :)

Jessica and Colin are two incredible souls. las year, Colin tried to propose to his gal at their spot on Bell Island multiple times with no luck (rain, ferry broken down, etc)... So of course when they asked if I'd be down to journey the island with them for their engagement shoot, it was a resounding yes!!

They spent hours on a beautiful breezy day exploring the beaches and cliffs of Bell Island, ending the night off with a feed of fried chicken while waiting for the final ferry boat. What a day for these two lovebirds!! All my love J+C!

When we saw this puffin chair at the new Bell Island lookout, we knew we HAD to do some hilarious "grandparents on vacation" style shots!

Hanging out and admiring the crazy view wasn't a bad way to end off this adventure. :)

Can't wait for the wedding day! Maddie xx

What do you get when two coffee, board game, and cat people meet and fall in love? This epic story below. 

Erin & Tim's engagement session was super cute and unique- if it was any indicator of their wedding this fall I know we all have a lot to look forward to! Thanks for having me, E+T! Can't wait for September!

Tanya & Owen's Engagement Session in St. John's// Newfoundland Engagement Photographers

But I would walk five hundred miles
And I would walk five hundred more
Just to be the man who walked a thousand miles
To fall down at your door.

Tanya and Owen are perhaps the most stylish and classy pair I've ever had for an engagement shoot! Between their flair for fashion, their cheerfulness, and stunning bouquet from Polished Bouquet Design... WOW!

THE LOVE STORY

Tanya and Owen attended High School together in China over 10 years ago. In that time, Tanya came all the way here to Newfoundland, attending university. She also maintained a very LONG, long distance relationship with her guy... and finally, after 10 years, they are together for good. While an official wedding date is not in the books yet, they wanted some super stylish images to celebrate their engagement and commitment to each other!

Polished Bouquet Design created these gorgeous blooms!

With these puchy lace-up heels and a dress from ASOS, the bride to be knows a thing or two on how to work it ;)

The water here reminds me of the scenes in Mamma Mia... Elopement in Greece, anyone? ;)

Thank you, Tanya and Owen, for letting me into this special time in your life and allowing me to preserve your memories! :)

ROBYN + MATTHEW / St. John's Engagement Photographers

On a chilly winter day in St. John's, Robyn & Matthew (with me in tow!) ventured out for their engagement photos. We had runny noses and cold hands and toes, but it was worth it because these two just warm my heart. Their day began with some adorable snowy adventures in Bowring Park, and ended with a romp around the Bannerman Loop skating rink. What a day, what a day. Huge congrats to you both!!

Lots of love,

-Maddie

On December 27th, 2015, these two made a promise to share life together, and I had the honour to witness their moment and capture it. Can't wait for their engagement shoot later this year!
