Lindsei + James

 

Lindsei and James chose the Marquis Resort in Los Cabos, Mexico to tie the knot. It was only next door where James had proposed to Lindsei on a previous vacation.
After having spent a couple days becoming familiar with the resort, dining with Lindsei and James closest friends and family and taking in some sunshine, their wedding day arrived. I awoke to the sound of the ocean waves from my balcony. Every morning a tiny bread door at the entrance of my hotel room delivered a basket of freshly baked rolls. This day, along with the basket was a surprise letter to me from the bride and groom. They had remained discreet about the locations of events up until the morning of when they surprised every guest with a spontaneous itinerary and personalized letter.
This wedding was special in many ways; The intimacy of the guest list had allowed opportunity for myself to form a very strong bond with everyone. A bond that I know many photographers strive to have with their couples, I am thankful to have with Lindsei and James. The resort was so peaceful and thoughtfully detailed, the staff was friendly and outgoing. The beach was clean, quiet and there were tall rocks not too far away that we ventured out to. As an overall experience, I can’t thank Lindsei and James enough for including me in this sacred chapter.

Lindsei and James flew me out to Los Cabos for their wedding day. We started the vacation with a day-before session! Marquis Resort in Los Cabos is one of the most beautiful locations I’ve visited and I’m so over the moon about having the opportunity to photograph here! There were endless places I wanted to take photos at, here is what we got :)

 

Kassie+Gabe

 

It took me soo long to finally blog this cute little session with my friend Kass! Mostly because I don’t really know where to begin. Kass is such a sweetheart and anyone who has even just met her leaves with a rosy smile on their face like Gabe. I can tell she is even more bubbly and energetic with Gabe around and it was so fun to see that and capture these cute moments between them.

I know what you’re thinking. How did the snow fall so perfectly?! How is this even a real couple?!
I am thinking the exact same thing as you; it all is almost too good to be true. Now add the anticipation of taking off on a plane with these two to Los Cabos to capture their wedding day!
Yep, in less than a month I will be in the stunning landscapes of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula, capturing their love. Definitely a polar (ha!) opposite than what their engagement photos are but equally as photogenic!

Kylie + Ryan

Fall had just started to hit the trees in Manitoba, so Kylie, Ryan, their cute Australian Shepherds and Myself took a road trip to the lake! We began the session on top of a large rock overlooking a lake in the Whiteshell. After canoeing in the water and playing with the puppies, we watch the sun set from the dock. It was absolutely gorgeous!

Brigitte + Aaron

 

This session was crazzyyyy!!!
We started the first portion of our evening with a strenuous sweat bath thanks to the incline of the 2 hour trail! Yes, they are kind of an unreal couple.
Then we took advantage of this beautiful golden hour on one of the craziest peaks!! (This elevation for Manitoba is seriously golden, ponyboy).
I had to stop myself from taking endless shots as we were on a strict time schedule. We knew we didn't want to be hiking back in the dark. This was the case for the most part at least! The hike back was much easier as it involved a downhill hustle, the annoying ringing of my bear bell attached to my camera bag and many trips on the roots that suck out from the ground. Though we didn't get quite out of the woods before dark, we did make it back to the parking lot to enjoy that 24 pack of water awaiting us. 
I will say one thing that picked up the pace on the way back was the jolting of a bat at my face. It happened so fast and it hit my neck on its way down, just enough for me to say "holy sheeeet" and it's a miracle how my legs went from feeling like mush to a marathon runner in a heartbeat!
