Couples Engagement Session in AirBnB
When Olivia told me she wanted to do a laid back couples session in an AirBnB, I was so excited. I loved getting to spend the evening with them, listening to the music coming in through the windows from the Exchange District, cutting holes in feather pillows and lounging around drinking beer. The rainy evening was the perfect setting for an indoor cozy engagement session.
Can you believe this loft???
It's gorgeous. I fell in love with the loft the second I saw the wall of obscure sunglasses walking in, and the high ceiling and room full of plants was so perfect. It's our little secret now, I'll never give up the location ;)
Thank you Olivia and Toby for allowing me to spend an amazing evening with you, and you both absolutely rocked this shoot!

Styled Shoot - Deer Meadow Farms
Deer Meadow Farms is located just a few minutes east of Winnipeg, nestled on 80 acres just across the floodway from Transcona, making it convenient for guests staying in hotels along the Regent strip or guests from the city. On your way in you will be greeted by the cutest little goats , lambs & mini horses.
The 80 acre farm boasts some amazing features such as the ‘High Barn’ and ‘Wild West Pavilion’ for wedding receptions up to 150 with loft and private spaces for the wedding party. The Wild West Pavilion features a western front with an upper level and barn board walls and accent lighting. There is nothing like this anywhere in Manitoba. All dressed up it’s nothing short of spectacular. The courtyard between the two buildings is also lit with swag lights should guests head outdoors for some fresh air.
The farm also features 25 acres of secluded, wooded areas for your outdoor ceremony that brings you close to nature. A wagon train will transport your guests to these areas during their summer season. There are also plenty of farm animals around.
All weddings hosted at the farm allow the bride and groom the opportunity to decide on everything and make the day their own. That includes choice of caterer, DJ, photographer, decor and decorations, wedding planners, etc. They have some of the friendliest staff that will help set up all your tables & chairs.
Deer Meadow Farms hosts thousands of guests annually and they know how to provide good service for their guests.
This mini styled shoot was literally put together in a week and I cannot thank my amazing vendors enough for your hard work and willingness to be a part of it. I am one of the luckiest girls around knowing each of you and knowing that I can count on you all to bring my vision to life.

La Lune Wedding St. Pierre Jolys
Let me tell you about Shelby and Blake’s gorgeous wedding day at La Lune, and how incredible excited I was to spend the day with them and capture their wedding.
We met when Shelby and Blake won an engagement session over the winter. I knew it was the perfect match when their engagement session was wandering around the forks, drinking beer and taking photographs with the heart balloons we found.
Their wedding day was more than perfect. Shelby wore her grandmother’s dress, which was such a sentimental touch to their day. The weather was perfect, and the fireworks show at the end of the night topped off the whole day. (The s’mores cupcakes we had were absolutely phenomenal, I had 3).
Shelby and Blake, I wish you all of the best in your new adventure with each other. The way you two look at each other, anyone who watches would know that you both are perfect for each other. Thank you for having me for your day, and here’s to many many years of happiness.
