Southern Manitoba Photographer | Brenna’s Grad Day

7 Jul

June 25th was a day the 2014 class of Morden Collegiate won’t forget! GRADUATION DAY! Your high school graduation is the first huge milestone a person hits!
13 years of hard work and dedication all lead up to that day when you suit up or put on that gorgeous dress (the one that you spent hours searching for; trying on dozens before it, only to put it on and say YES!); take pictures with your friends and family; put on that cap (ladies…you remember…the one that crushed your hair!) and gown; walk across that stage and receive that one piece of paper that says…You did it!

Brenna…I wish you all the best in your coming years! Enjoy this time!! This is your time to shine!

Thank you for allowing me to tail you for this extremely important day! I’m beyond proud of you (as well as the rest of your graduating class!)! You did it!!

Southern Manitoba Photographer | Nick & Ti’an’s Wedding

8 Jun

This wedding was rather near and dear to my heart. My hubby’s youngest brother got married to an absolutely amazing woman!!
After a whirlwind courtship and engagement, they tied the knot 7 months after they first met!
Ti’an had such a specific idea of the look she was going for and I have to say, she executed it perfectly!!
A beautiful mix of country chic with a bit of redneck (odd I know…but it really worked!) Their ceremony was by far one of the most emotional and moving wedding ceremonies that I’ve been to.
I usually don’t tear up during the ceremony…but this one I totally did!

So, Nick & Ti’an…I wish you two a lifetime of happiness!! Congratulations!!

Dress: Custom made from Athena Couture
Brides Shoes: Toms
