2019|Shoot and Share Contest

 

As I mentioned in a previous blog, I entered a huge contest called Shoot and Share. I entered again this year and went all in with 50 submissions from over my year of photographing all of my amazing clients.

 

This is the biggest contest that is held over the year with a jaw dropping 583, 150 entries this year. Photographers from all over the world enter every year and I am so excited that I had the opportunity to participate in it. The talent is amazing and I have learned so much from just looking at others work and knowing exactly where I want mine to be. We have just entered round 7 which means we are officially in the top 30% and I know I have at least 1 photo still in there floating around somewhere. SO Exciting!!

 

I went in with a full heart and a heavy hand on my decisions going back and forth adding and removing and re-adding selection after selection until I finally came to my final 50 choices. I chose photos that made me smile and laugh until I cried remembering every moment I spent photographing families, weddings, friends old and new.

 

I have loved every second of spending time with all of you, meeting you and finding new friendships. I chose photos that made my heart soar with memories and love and photos that made me feel all the feelings I have in me.

 

I truly want to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for trusting me with your memories as you grow together, I couldn’t be happier that I got a chance to be part of it.

Couples| Jessica & Johnny

Like I’ve said before sunset is my absolute favourite time to shoot. The light is gorgeous and the beautiful painted sky adds so much to your shoot. So when your photographer says lets meet at sunset – you nod enthusiastically and go in knowing you are getting the best possible time of day! I met last summer with Jess and Johnny, I’ve known them since they were just young and in love, well honestly they are still young and in love but it’s been a few years since I’ve seen them last so not as young haha. They were an absolute blast to be around, and Jess I am still so sorry about the bee stinging your butt!

Summer Engagements| Carol-Anne & Dennis

If you can’t tell already sunset is my favourite time to shoot at. The light is always perfect the sky is colourful and you can always get some pretty amazing silhouettes with the right spot!

Carol-Anne and Dennis are such a lovely couple! Carol-Anne found me through a project I did a couple years ago and we met over coffee and I fell in love with the couple as we bonded over our beagles and all things English!

Spring Engagement|Emily & Graham

I am so delinquent in my blogging and I apologize for that!  So here I am getting caught up and bombarding you with lovely photos of lovely people!

I met up with Emily and Graham back in May on a really cold and rainy day.  We were planning to have an outdoor engagement session in the evening but the weather wasn’t cooperating with us, so I came up with a plan B and we headed indoors to a local greenhouse for one of my favourite engagement sessions to date!
