Krista + Geoff's ENGAGEMENT SHOOT at Bowring Park // St. John's Engagement Photographers

Krista messaged me way way back in August about shooting her winter engagement photos, and it's safe to say that I have been way too excited ever since!! Over the course of the winter, chatting with Krista and helping plan her shoot was such a joy, and we became fast friends!

St. John's received fluffy snow and perfect weather last weekend (mild AND no wind, a miracle!), so the time had come to finally meet this lady and her fiancé!

It was pure joy capturing their engagement photos! Their outfits were on point, but that didn't stop them from being incredibly sweet and down to earth. Near the end of the shoot, we were followed by a hissing swan, but it didn't get us down!

Krista & Geoff, creating your winter fairytale was wonderful, and I can't wait to shoot your wedding someday soon! xo :) Maddie

 
 
 
 
 
 

Robyn + Matthew's Wedding at Manuel's River in CBS // Newfoundland Wedding Photographers

Robyn and Matthew met in highschool, fell in love, and the story continues to this day. 

This amazing wedding began with the bride and groom each getting ready in their childhood homes, surrounded by love from their families and bridal parties. In the early afternoon, Matthew's uncle then officiated their ceremony, which added such a personal touch to the vows and wedding. After an adventurous afternoon of photos around historic St. John's and the stunning Manuel's River, with R+M all cuddled out, everyone enjoyed dinner and a slideshow of memories from the couple's life together.

In an age where love is too easily overshadowed by the greed, busyness, and changing times in our world, it was so refreshing and beautiful to witness a storybook connection. Thank you Robyn and Matthew from the bottom of my heart.

Thank you to Elbonita Kohzani Photography for your assistance and second shooting!

Sarah & Drew : Rehearsal Barbecue // Lethbridge Wedding Photographers

On a clear Friday night in Lethbridge Newfoundland, the sunset lit the sky aflame in pink and gold. Sarah and Drew here gathered with their nearest and dearest for a rehearsal dinner unlike any other- think glowsticks, beers, barbecue, and pugs. What more could you ask for? Just hours away from these moments, S+D said their I Do's in this very spot- a cottage on the sea which has been in the groom's family for generations. 

I was invited by Sarah and Drew to attend their rehearsal dinner before photographing their wedding the next day, and it was my pleasure to enjoy the night with their bridal party and family, taking some photos along the way. :) Stay tuned for the wedding!!

Shirley + Chi's Modern & quirky Engagement Session in St. John's // Newfoundland Engagement Photographers

Chi and Shirley grew up in the same city in China and never met... until they came here to attend Memorial University years ago! Once they started dating, the rest was history! The lovebirds are going home to get married next month, and wanted some engagement photos in Downtown St. John's before their trip! Thanks for an amazing day and an amazing session C+S, your love for each other is so evident and it was a pleasure to capture :)
