Laurie and Everett were married in Ireland. We WISH we could have been there for that, the footage from their day looks magical. When they came home they threw a big bash for family and friends to help them celebrate – and we had the honour of being a part of it.
We met up before the reception for photos, and our first stop was at Archbishop O’Leary high school. Yep, these two are high school sweethearts, so we went back to where it all began. It just so happens that my brother works there, so he got us inside for a walk through the hallways and a few shots in the classroom where they met (I know, too much fun!!).
The day was a blast. These two are amazing, wonderful people who have been through so much together and are still going strong. We’re lucky to know them, and we’re so happy we got to be a part of the day.
Congrats again you two. Shauna
It was time for a driving day, as we finally said good-bye to Te Anau. I think it’s the longest we’ve spent somewhere since we came to the south island. The drive took all day as the windy road took us through beautiful countryside. We left sunny skies and drove into rain, and wind. Lots and lots of wind. So much wind it bends the trees all in the same direction, away from the sea. I have never seen anything like those trees being bent.
The drive was peaceful, rambling and easygoing. We weren’t sure where we would end up at the end of the day, but we were happy to be slowly making our way there.
We met this awesome family on Father’s Day for a warm evening of golf. Little Jayan is a golf fanatic, and has his own clubs to prove it. He is such a fun guy, he warmed up to us right away and we became fast friends.
Thanks for spending Father’s Day with us guys! We had an absolute blast.
We met Meagan and Tom for the first time the night of their engagement shoot. They are another amazing couple who booked with us while we were away gallivanting around the world. We could tell they were unsure about this whole “engagement photos” business, but they very quickly realized how much fun we are! We had such a great evening with these two, hanging out in the beautiful woods…swatting misquotes, being eaten alive.
The images showed it was totally worth the slight loss of blood! Thanks so, so much for coming to get to know us you two, we are SO excited for your wedding in September!
Lots of Love,
Gareth and I arrived back to Edmonton from our 17 month trip less than a week before Veronica & Matteo’s wedding. This would make most brides incredibly nervous, so we checked with everyone who had booked with us before we booked our flights home. Veronica’s response was – stay away and enjoy your trip as long as you possibly can. Her breezy, easygoing attitude extended to everything on her wedding day, resulting in a laid back, low stress day.
All of the details were gorgeous, and it was clear that all Matteo and Veronica wanted was for everyone to have fun. I think the mission was accomplished. We loved hanging out with you and your family, we had an absolute blast! Congrats again to you both, thank you so much for having us be a part of your day. We are truly honoured.
Shauna & Gareth
Mark and Desiree are welcoming a baby into the world very soon (hopefully this week!) We were thrilled to spend the evening with them and capture this time just before the little one comes.
We can’t wait to meet your new addition guys!

Our first photo shoot when we came home from our big trip was with the beautiful Ninomiya ladies. Amanda & Alyssa surprised their mom with a shoot with us! It was a gorgeous evening, and we had a blast with them all. Here are just a few shots.
Thanks for the wonderful evenings!
Our new website is up and running, and we’re getting settled into life at home. It’s been a crazy busy month, but we feel like we’re getting there. And no better way than to get this blog moving again. I’ve missed writing on here, so trust me, there is a lot more coming.
Tamara & Thanasi booked us for their July wedding while we were still away. I have said this about all the brides that booked us – you rock. They trusted that we would be here, we would all get along, and we would stay in one place long enough to shoot their wedding. It is so good to be home, and we couldn’t be happier to be included.
Spending the evening with Tamara and Thanasi meant hanging out talking about good restaurants, our favourite wine, and travelling. All things we love, and they do too. We were meant to be!
Thank you for having us be a part of things guys, we can’t wait for your wedding!
