I love when bridesmaids from past weddings fall in love and ask me to document their day!!! Amanda did just that and it was sooooooo thrilling to spend time with her and Alex and tell their love story through my lens. These two knew right away that they were meant for one another…and as soon as you share space with them…you see it too. Shy and sweet…their smiles and giggles are infectious…these two snuggled up together in their loft and then let me follow them around while they showed me their neighbourhood.
Such an amazing country wedding for these two on one of the hottest days of the year! Country weddings are my favorite and when I met this couple on this property for their engagement shoot I fell in love with the land and knew it would be something special. So memorable…from the wrong turn that landed the girls and I at the U.S./Canada border…to climbing through barbed wire fences in a wedding dress to get the perfect shot…smoke bomb adventures…relentless heat…never-ending laughter and fun….tears and most of all LOVE in all of it’s forms. Family, friends, and two people who found one another and want to share this adventure called LIFE.
”And the purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.”

It is such a beautiful thing when clients feel like friends right from the start. It is even more beautiful when they let down their guards and really allow you into their lives. An intimate peek inside of their love. I make sure my clients know what to expect when doing a shoot with me. That I will push them emotionally and provide them with the space to create beautiful emotional portraits. Yes we will laugh together...but more often than not we will also move past the awkwardness and into the deep.
"Working with Julie was an absolute dream come true. As soon as we met her, it felt like we had known her forever! I am blown away by how she captured our love towards one another. There were moments of pure laughter and tender moments that moved us to tears. The engagement shoot turned into something so much deeper than just simply taking pictures. It was a true moment of connection and reflection of our relationship and the exciting year to come. We walked away on a complete high." Eric & Jade
Their love gives me goosebumps. From the moment I met these two...I knew that I wanted to follow them around to the ends of the earth and document their amazing human-ness. The brides gorgeous dress was custom made by my favourite designer Andreanne Dandeneau of Voila par Andreanne and incorporated the mother of the brides wedding gown into her own....just one of the many sentimental touches that were scattered throughout the day. The couple's bridal party consisted of their four children and the emotions ran high...overwhelming gratitude and happiness. An intimate ceremony and reception at Fort Gibraltar, surrounded by their family and friends. This wedding was the very definition of LOVE to me.
