Brian + Shawn's Elopement // St. John's Wedding Photographer


Brian and Shawn. Decades together, deep friendship & beautiful love, and now husbands.

Spent an afternoon with these joyful souls last fall making it official. Their intimate elopement on the dockside of St. John's brought tears to everyone's eyes, including mine- but that's no shock.

Enjoy this little glimpse into their story. XO 

Signing their marriage document and smiling ear to ear. Love my job so much. 

Kelli & Brad's Wedding at Rocket Bakery in St. John's / Newfoundland Wedding Photographers


It's always been a strong belief of mine that the very best kind of weddings are the ones where you throw tradition to the wind, do things your way, and make the celebration all about love & enjoying the company of your favourite people.

Kelli & Brad did just that by keeping their wedding super laid back.

We started the day with a first look over the harbour, and it was a miracle we didn't blow away! ;) Then it was onto the park for family time (just look at their gorgeous daughter, my heart!), and drinks at Shamrock City with their bridal party. After dinner at JAG Hotel, Kelli and Brad had an evening ceremony at Rocket Bakery which was followed by a super chill cocktail reception!

Big thanks to these fellas for an amazing day (and the amazing food, haha!). Congratulations and all my love K+B!

Victoria & Tyler's Elopement at Signal Hill, St. John's // Newfoundland Wedding Photographers


Victoria and Tyler have had a beautiful life with their two children, and wanted to celebrate their love with a laid back and modern elopement at Signal Hill in August!

With a custom dress from Melanie Jacqueline Designs, handmade blooms, and the sweetness to match, these two had a beautiful and heartfelt ceremony followed by a romp around the edge of the world.

Congrats V + T!!! 


St. John's Wedding Photographers || Kat + Geoff Are Married!!

Feast your eyes on this set, you won't be sorry when you see this sweet pair :) Way back in August, with only a couple weeks left before their ceremony, Kat and her fiancé Geoff asked me to capture their elopement on Signal Hill.. How could I say no to that?! Well, I didn't! :) That's how I came to know their story.

These two were living in Nova Scotia with their little ones, when Geoff one day proposed! However, upon planning their day, the lovebirds realized a big wedding wasn't what they wanted... so they put the nuptials aside, and for the next 4 years, life, while wonderful, got in the way of the vows. HOWEVER! Flash forward to August, 2015. Finally, K+G just couldn't wait any longer!!! So, with their best friends and the kids in tow, they planned a trip here to our beautiful province of NL, seeing the sights and catching a concert weekend on their way! After all that fun, everything quieted down when everyone came down a flowery path on the side of Signal Hill to the sound of the waves, waiting for the ceremony to start. Finally, after 4 years of waiting, Geoff got to see his bride come down the "aisle" (might I mention, she looked stunning in her mermaid-style gown!!). With only a few VIP's (Very Important Peeps)- a couple parents, best friends, and the kids, Kathleen and Geoff made it official with moving vows and a ceremony that even brought tears to my eyes (although anyone who knows me knows that is not very hard). After sharing some champagne, hugs, and kisses, the crew left to celebrate the brand new Mr. and Mrs.!!! Now that you know their story, have a look at the photos I was honoured to capture! Have a happy day, xo

xox, Maddie
