What’s in a date, right? Jillian and James didn’t pause to consider the option to reset their wedding celebration for next year, opting instead for a more intimate celebration this year with their closest loved ones. They were adamant about their day, their marriage happening on the very day that they chose. Scrambled plans, new ideas, covid tests and sudden changes were things they knew they’d have to face, but they did it with patience and smiles.

On their big day, you’d never guess anything was different. It was beautiful, the enormity of their and everyone’s emotions around them never scaled down. When the sun broke through the clouds amid what had been an overcast day just as they were pronounced husband and wife, we thought what a great omen it was. At that moment clearly someone above loved them just as the people all around them.

Jillian and James decision for the date was to commemorate their marriage, but it was also the anniversary of Jillian’s father’s passing. In a way, it was to keep him there and close. It was a beautiful gesture and our hearts were full when we learnt of it. For two people who are truly so beautiful and inside and out, nothing would be deserving short of a perfect day. Every second of the day was speckled with happiness. We’re so honored to have been able to partake in this joy; to frame it for them to look back on years down the road.

James and Jillian – when you look at these images, remember the laughs, reflect on the jokes, feel the excitement! Thank you for sharing it all with us and for helping us create these beautiful new memories along with you.

Happy Tuesday! It’s an exceptionally celebratory time for the coming weeks kicking off with Diwali this past weekend and leading into Thanksgiving next week. Our blog is going to roll along those vibes and we’re so excited to share what’s coming in this time!

Monica and Brad’s Harkness magic shoot is first up. It easily was the perfect autumn day we could have picked. The trees had vibrant color, the temperature was warm, and the atmosphere almost mellow. Besides all this, we had the most gorgeous light we can imagine this time of the year. Monica and Brad came ready to the shoot; their excitement easily palpable. We walked, we talked, and in the end we chased the sunset. With them, our ideas easily came to life. So many beautiful moments that we were hard pressed to select these handful!

Monica and Brad – this sets the stage for a celebration next year where we hope to do much of the same. We’re dreaming of these big and small moments (mask free?) where we can just enjoy life and love. Looking at these pics, we hope you forget this time with all of it’s challenges and remember that sweeter things are on the horizon. And we are all so ready for it!

Whenever we have family shoots with our past couples, we always find ourselves in awe. It’s amazing to see them in this new chapter in their lives. To see their growth and all the subtle changes. Their eyes may look slightly tired, but in them you can glimpse a well of love and compassion. Their joy is revolving around the little being that is toddling around. It’s easy to see that now their joy is complete.

Patrick and Rebecca brought Baby E and plopped her right on the leaves. We expected squirming or a faint cry, but shockingly the little lady dived right in. She LOVED exploring the outdoors – touching the textures, picking flowers, tasting the flowers, trying to walk, resorting to crawling when possible, reaching for the stars, getting dirty – overall being a curious kiddo! We were completely smitten by her big blue eyes along with her inquisitiveness. It made our morning to spend the time with them capturing these moments!
