So, 2018 was pretty fantastic. We had our first destination wedding (even if we ended up with an epic speeding ticket with the bride and groom in the back of the car… sorry Rammy), joined the Professional Wedding Photographers of Canada, and got accepted into the prestigious Fearless Photographers Collective. We shot 18 weddings and have so far booked another 20 for 2019, including one in Toronto and one in the Caribbean (!), and we’ve been spending most of this month prepping giant canvases and promotional material for our first big wedding expo in January.
As the year comes to a close, we’ve collected some of our favourite moments and photos from 2018 – the artistic, the emotional, the raw, authentic, and the hilarious. I am so grateful to those that inspire me, those that teach me, those that shoot with me, and those that trust me to capture some of the most incredible memories of their lives. This year, brides and grooms have become dear friends, and newlyweds have embarked upon new chapters as parents. I am so, so honoured to get to witness these journeys and to have these people in my life. I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed making it:
