These two love adventures in Gros Morne National Park in their spare time, so we decided that a trip to the park would make the perfect engagement session! They showed me some of their favourite secret spots, and the stormy clouds filled the Tablelands valley at just the right moment. So excited for more adventures to come with their wedding this summer!
These two have just about the most beautiful love story - high school sweethearts reunited after years apart, other lives lived. It was such a beautiful thing to watch these two families join together, in a perfect forest grove outside of Corner Brook, Newfoundland.
I loved all of Allison's details so much!
PS - this golden glowing evening is what happens when you let your photographer choose what time of day you get married!! haha
It was an absolutely torrential downpour, and these two couldn't have cared less. Steph and Adam were so excited for their Bell Island adventure, and so ready to make the best of the weather. We explored the island, got drenched, and had an absolute blast!
This wedding was featured on Styled in Lace back in the summer.
These two planned their wedding based on when they could get the Bonavista Social Club. Needless to say, they are my kinda people. Sheena and Lee were so in love with Trinity that they knew this is where they wanted to be married - but like the adventurous souls that they are, they decided to make it the best day ever.
We had their first look in the streets of historic Trinity, then wandered around the old town. They were married by one of Sheena's best friends on a hill overlooking Trinity where they promised each other a life full of adventure, surrounded by a few close people, Lee's dad on the guitar, and a bottle of bubbly.
We made our way across the peninsula for dinner at the Bonavista Social Club, one of the most relaxed and incredible Intimate Wedding venues I have come across! We hung out on the deck, munching on their wood oven pizzas and checking out the incredible view, complete with icebergs.
These two had such a beautiful and relaxed day, full of cherished people and good vibes!
The first ever Let's Have an Adventure Session could not have been with a more adventurous couple. Marcie and Adam live in a beautiful area in CBS right on the edge of the ocean, and they are always taking advantage of their surroundings. They also happen to be incredible cooks, and are into wild food foraging, so we decided the perfect session would include a foraging expedition, and then a campfire to cook up their findings. It was the perfect time to find some winter chanterelles, open up a bottle of wine, and enjoy a gorgeous fall evening. And the tastiest meal I've probably ever had!
I have limited Fall session times remaining, so touch base to find out when we can have an adventure! I also have gift cards available on the SHOP page, and Let's Have an Adventure Session make the best holiday gifts (the commitment to spend time together is way cooler than another scarf, right?)!
Anna + Ali’s Fogo Island Elopement in the spring was one of the most fun days in the whole world. These two wild folks are so full of laughs and SO ready for every adventure. They are travel bloggers from Calgary who spend their time exploring all around the world, and decided that their Elopement was the perfect time to see a bit more of their own country. The details of their wedding were collected throughout their travels: Anna's INCREDIBLE unique dress and coat were designed in Romania, her sparkly boots were bought on their trip to Japan, and parts of Ali's outfit were from Ukraine.
When these two first got in touch, they were considering getting married in Iceland. Since they decided to stick with a Newfoundland forest wedding later this year, we thought it would be fun to find some barren Iceland-ish landscapes for their engagement session last week. The Avalon Peninsula did not disappoint.
Also please note that these rad folks brought a picnic. A picnic of wine and Freak Lunchbox. AND they shared. <3 <3 <3
I met these two sweet souls at a wedding back in June where Rob was one of the groomsmen. The first thing he said to me was "This is the dog I got for my future wife. She's amazing." as he showed me photos on his phone. I got to meet Melissa as well at the reception, and then Hally the pup at their Engagement Session last week!
I crashed their camping trip at Barachois Pond Provincial Park, their favourite campground, and we went wandering through the woods. It was so full of laughs and golden light and canoe rides(!!). These two were so much fun, so up for everything, and they even shared their treats from Danni's Bakery.
Thank you guys for having me along on your adventure, I am so grateful that we crossed paths!
I can't lie - July was madness. Miles and miles and miles and miles. More than half of my wedding season already past, and the fall creeping up before me. I want to take a little moment before I climb back into my car and scoot across this huge province one last time this summer to reflect and find gratitude for all that has passed since the light came back to the North.
Gratitude. I am so full of gratitude for every wild moment that this wedding season has brought. Every adventurous couple, every calm intimate forest moment, every second of the rush that fills me when the light is good and the company is better.
One year ago this week I shot my first ever elopement, and was immediately obsessed. Obsessed with the authenticity, the honesty, the rawness of such an intimate ceremony. After a summer filled with the most wild Adventurous Elopements, hiking and exploring with some of the most rad couples I have ever met, I have nothing but awe and gratitude for this path.
The return of Self Love Sessions this spring and summer is something that my heart has been begging of me for years now, though fear and doubt kept me quiet. I am so wholeheartedly blissed to have brought these sessions back to the forefront of my business and to give them the devotion and intention that they deserve. Nothing makes my spirit soar more than giving free spirited women the space to let their souls show, and for this purpose I am deeply grateful.
I’ve been trying to ward off the stress of being so busy by making everything I do an act of intention, particularly in regards to food. Buying only whole food. Cooking each meal with intention. Never letting myself get too stressed about my to do list to skip meals (a bad habit of mine). Trying to curb the candy addiction. QUITTING SMOKING (!!!!) (Finally. Finally. Finally. Thank you lungs for putting up with me this long.) Trying to learn to listen to my body and trust the intuition that is inherent within. Freeing my soul a little more by exploring my spirituality. More forest. More river. More bare feet.
Last night the full moon was hidden by the fog of St. John’s, but this morning at 5 am I hiked out to a gorgeous spot on the East Coast Trail with the rad photographer Anika Bursey to watch the sunrise and dance on the cliffs by the light of the full moon that hung as bright as ever, whales splashing all around us. This last trip in to St. John’s has me really realizing more than ever that the city has left my soul, and I am so filled now with the wilderness. Give me forest floors instead of pavement, give me moss for carpet.
There are still many miles to go in this hectic wedding season, and I am tired and I am scattered and I need to do laundry and I need to call my sisters, but I am learning and growing at a wild pace and in the end I am just grateful and humbled for this wild little life.
I hope you are having a wonderful summer. I hope you are soaking in as much blissful sunshine as you can. I hope wherever you are in life right now, you take the time to go outside as often as possible and just let your soul rejoice in nature. I hope you get the chance to take some whole days to just get lost out there. I hope you see some rad sunsets, or turn it around and get up at 4 am for some even crazier sunrises. I hope you're well. Stay wild.
