OK OK OK let’s be honest, every single one of you guys know I have a major @taylorswift addiction. (but like, for real tho).
It’s true, if it wasn’t for 15 year old Saraya listening to “Love Story” and “ You Belong With Me” on repeat I probably wouldn’t be as obsessed with love as I am now, hence why I’m a wedding photographer duhhhhh!!!
BUTTTT can we please talk about her new album that JUST DROPPED last night?! I’m not gunna lie - I had no idea what to expect for this album. I mean can you blame me? She went from a young love writing song about the boy next door, to freakin’ SAVAGE in a hot minute so when I hit play on the first song on the album at 12am I was prepared for ANYTHING.
And well, all I can say is YO GURL IS STILL A TS FAN - like I seriously thought her album was KILLER and probably one of her best thought out ones (also applause to her that it’s her first album she’s actually owned HERSELF and not by Big Machine Records).
SO LET’S GET STRAIGHT TO IT. Some of my favourite songs on this album are “Lover” DUHHH cause its a total wedding song and well that’s my shit so. I also love “Paper Rings”, “I Think He Knows”, “London Boy” AND WELL BASICALLY EVERY SINGLE ONE LOL
BUT, I also FREAKIN’ LOVE “The Man”, like HOLY HELL what a power feminism move. As a female owner of 2 businesses, I absolutely think she SLAYED this song. LIKE YAS. GO GIRLS. WE ROCK! And plus, I’m not gunna lie I thought the line where she states that we live in a world where guys can flash their money around and get “bitches + models” and it’s okay, but if females did that “I’d be a bitch, not a baller” and we get painted out to be bad. LIKE EXCUSE ME? DID TS JUST SAY THAT? But for real though, absolute POWER song.
I’m also a HUGE fan of “Afterglow”, like what a damn MOOD. I think I love this song so much because it reminds me of her very early work, like it’s just the most lyrical song. And plus I love the line “meet me in the afterglow” - like let me tell you I dunno what the hell the afterglow is but it sounds like somewhere I WANNA BE LOL. DAMN WHIMSICAL LYRICAL GENIUS.
SO TELL ME - what’s your FAV song from the album and why?!?!? I NEED TO KNOW!!!!!!!✨🦋💘

I cannot begin to tell you how happy I was to witness these two amazing humans yesterday! Jake + Loraleah I am beyond words. Your ceremony was beautiful, your reception was STUNNING, and you two were so much fun to capture. I cannot wait for our After Wedding Session this Sunday <3
Invitations are one of our favorite parts of the entire process—it sets the tone for the whole thing, after all! And because our couples care about the way they invite their guests to their wedding, we like to style up their invitation suite to showcase it in a way that is rad and authentic to their wedding.
This means we use ribbon, ring boxes, flowers or fruit, and a couple other items from their big day and our styling kit to do it up right.
Oh, and photographers who don’t have a designer/stylist there on wedding day—our biggest tip to you: Style. Shoot. Style. Shoot. Style. Shoot. You will second guess yourself so much, so just make sure your lines are clean, and shoot it. Do it a few different ways so you can pick your favorites in post.
Oh, and if ya wanna get crazy (like we sometimes do), style it vertically for Pinterest, horizontally for websites, and square it for the gram. A little extra work, sure, but your fellow vendors will sure appreciate the variety!
So now we wanna know, do you like styling flatlays? Hate it? Somewhere in between?

It had been MONTHS since @topknottresses had an actual fill, so we decided to pop off the remaining 9 lashes and do a full set! Check out those baby blues!!

Two truths and a lie: Your Mission, should you choose to accept, is to guess the thing that is NOT true AND respond with your own for me to guess! Also, if you're family or have known me my whole life..don't revel all my secrets 😉
I adore the outdoor ceremony area at @lairmontmanor, it is just so gorgeous! You can dress it up or dress it down. In this case the bride decided to go simple and show off how beautiful the venue is with just some rose petals down the aisle! It was absolutely perfect. ❤️ Photo: @sarahjane_brown

I’ll never get over these two. ✨ Also, can we talk about how breathtaking these florals are by @goodseedfloral ?!?! Did you know that they were our wedding florists? I literally bursted into tears when Josie walked in with my bouquet on our wedding day. It was beyond anything I ever could have imagined. 😭
Friday Introductions 🤘🏻
This is us, well the back of us 😜. Coming out of our favorite thrift store ( hey girl hey @againthriftshop )
Sourcing unique pieces for our collection is definitely one of the best parts of our job ! It’s the question we get the most often “Where do you get your stuff ?” (There’s an entire blog post about this on our website ) It’s important to us that our collection remain cohesive without feeling BORING ! When shopping we may have a general idea of what we are looking for but most of the time , the pieces find us !
What’s your favorite piece from our collection ? I love the gold velvet tufted sofa , the vintage post office table AND our Goldy tweed chairs (honestly , it’s just so hard to pick) 🙀

Me and my husband 🎊 a lot of you have asked how we met over the years, but I’ve never told you guys the full story. My husband, Stuart, was good friends with my brother before me, and when I first met him I thought he was married - I could swear my brother said his friend was married but in hindsight, he must have been talking about someone else. So believing Stuart was married, I didn’t think anything of it when he took the empty seat next to me and struck up a conversation during a night out with friends nearly 5 years ago.
About an hour into our conversation, I vividly remember zoning out for a moment and thinking to myself, “Wow, this guy is really nice and funny. He’s one of the good ones. His wife is really lucky, good for her.”
Then about 5 minutes later, Stuart reached over, flirtatiously took my drink out of my hands, sipped it, and handed it back to me. And I thought “OMG HOW DARE YOU YOU’RE MARRIED YOU ARE AWFUL” and then I flashed back through our entire conversation and realized there was no “we” or “us” or “wife” mentioned, glanced at his ring finger (surprise, no ring!), and realized that this guy was single and interested in me this entire time. 🤦🏼♀️
The amazing thing about that night, is that while I was sitting there, looking at him, thinking about how lucky his wife was, I didn’t realize that she was me. 👰🏼
I got to marry someone who is funny (don’t tell him I said that!), smart, thoughtful, and generous. Somebody who consistently impresses me with their heart, and for some crazy reason, loves me despite my flaws. And I knew he was the one from the very beginning... if you don’t count that hour where I thought he was married. 😂

Obviously, I can’t predict the weather. When scheduling your date for an elopement or adventure session, I can’t guarantee views for miles, or the most colorful sunset you’ll ever see. But I can guarantee an EXPERIENCE- one with fun conversations, laughter, champagne popping, and moments worth cherishing for years to come. I’ll even share my gummy bears with you ♥️
Oh and pictures? I’ve got you covered... can’t forget those 🤣
