I provide a joyful and effortless photographic experience to brides and grooms, couples, families, and parents-to-be! When I'm not creating timeless imagery, you can find me updating my first home with my other half, Tyler, or binge-watching Netflix with a bowl of popcorn nearby.
Tucked away 30 minutes north of Barrie, Ontario is the quaint little town of Elmvale; home to Rounds Ranch. When Nathan and Madeleine inquired with me last year about their wedding being held at Rounds Ranch, the first things that came to mind were: children, fun, games, and corn maze! I never would have added WEDDING to that list.
On the day of their wedding, I met up with Nathan and Maddy who had rented an AirBnB house in Barrie. This house was HUGE and BEAUTIFUL. Nathan and the guys got ready in the Kitchen which was on the second floor. Maddy and the girls got ready in the top floor loft. As big as this house was, there was only ONE bathroom for everyone to get ready in. It was, of course, located in the loft. Needless to say, there was A LOT of running up and down stairs. My calves are still sore today!
This was a very interesting situation. Why? Because Nathan and Maddy WERE NOT doing a first look! I am giving a HUGE shout out to Maddy’s Maid of Honour, Shaina! She helped me herd the guys outside on to the balcony while I ran down to the ground floor with Maddy’s dress to photograph it and the details. Shaina also helped when the guys needed the bathroom. We kicked them back out on to the balcony, ran Maddy down stairs to the conference room, and had the guys go upstairs to get their things in order.
When I was finished photos at the house, I left and arrived at Rounds Ranch to quickly and efficiently capture all the details before the ceremony started. Everything was BEAUTIFULLY decorated! As the ceremony and reception proceeded, there was much laughter from both the Bride and Groom and their family. You could literally feel the love in the air between them. It was truly a beautiful, relaxed, and casual wedding.
Nathan and Maddy were a dream to work with. They were up for any and all ideas I had! There were not many hiccups throughout the day. In regards to the small problems we did have, Maddy was amazing and did not let the issues ruin her big day!
Nathan and Maddy, I know you two are currently on Canada’s East Coast enjoying your honeymoon, but I hope when you get settled in, or when you return home, you enjoy reliving your wedding day through your blog post!! It was such an honour to be your photographer and I am so thankful for you two!
