Styled Shoot

Those Fall sunsets…

It’s pains me to say goodbye to summer. My favourite season – sunshine, lush greenery and gorgeous weather.

But – we embrace the new, right? A fresh start. Bring on those fall sunsets and pumpkin spice lattes…

Styled Shoot – Bowties and Burlap Wedding

Oh what a day.
I collaborated with some incredible, young wedding networkers to create this styled shoot. Many shopping trips, emails and one rain-date later, we were all in one place, snacking on the same macarons. This was such a fun project and I can’t say enough good things about the amazing people I get to work with.
Jaime is one of my best. She is starting her own wedding and event planning business; Ruffled Lace Events by Elizabeth is the love-child of all the wonderful ideas she has and her years of experience in architectural & interior design. I’m oh-so excited to see her career unfold.
Bethany has a talent for make up & hair that I’ve seen develop into a blossoming career over the past few years. She’s an amazing girl that makes anyone that is lucky enough to be in her chair, giggle the whole time they are with her. And make up & hair in one artist? Yes, please.
Johnathon + Kelly, ugh. These pretty people made my day. They were willing go anywhere I asked…and freeze, tilt, and dance every time I asked. J & K also kept our ringbearer entertained the whole day, and that’s a job in itself.
Petit Paris. Oh me, oh my. Where do I begin. Just the BEST patisserie this side of the ocean. This beautiful cake was in my head, and they made it happen. Oh and when they surprised me with my favourite french macarons? They went to the top of my Favourite list.
Eric (boyfriend.) and Jerrica (the other soulmate.) were there assisting and making sure I nourished myself…What would I do without those two.

Every so often you get the chance to work with people who just get you. These people get me. And I`m proud to call them all friends.
The theme for our shoot was based around bowties and burlap. We even got my little nephew to stand in as a ringbearer. Throw in some bubbles, green green grass, and a little boy who loves everybody, and you have yourself a shoot.
