Waiting for those metaphorical butterflies. {Chantell + Jeremy’s E-session}

Butterflies. Yeah, you know what I’m talking about! The kind you get deep in the core of your stomach when anticipation is nearly killing you. The kind that cannot be suppressed when walking down the aisle, arm in arm with your father… eagerly awaiting the reaction on your groom’s face. Chantell cannot wait for these [...]

Butterflies. Yeah, you know what I’m talking about! The kind you get deep in the core of your stomach when anticipation is nearly killing you. The kind that cannot be suppressed when walking down the aisle, arm in arm with your father… eagerly awaiting the reaction on your groom’s face. Chantell cannot wait for these particular butterflies! And earlier this Fall she had a chance to practice during her engagement session with hubby-to-be Jeremey {affectionately known to Chantell as *Jerry Berry*}.

Chantell + Jeremy will be married October 15th, 2011 in Jeremy’s grandmother’s church, St. Michael’s and All Angels {a special tribute to her}. To say they are excited would be the understatement of the year! Our radiant couple first met at the most unlikely of places: Fabutan and Future Shop. According to Chantell, she thought there was no way she’d ever go out with the likes of him! But Cupid got the better of her and also managed to ratchet up the chemistry on that very first date: she was toast. The crazy chemistry they shared, the bond they developed right away could mean only one thing: they were stuck together forever! And so for Jeremy, a man who could not live without fishing and his Boston Bruins, he now had one other obsession to add to the list… one he wasn’t ever letting get away.

Enjoy your sneak peek, guys. We are as stoked as you are for the Big Day to arrive. Well past the one year mark, now!!! All the best and Merry Christmas! –xo Alvi, Sam, Melissa

Kaisa + Kevin’s decade-long love story.

We know you’re possibly growing weary of our chronic {and oh-so-effusive!} giddiness over posting each of our wedding couples, but really, we just can’t help it. We surrender already! Case in point: Kaisa + Kevin. Two of the kindest, most sincere individuals to grace our camera lenses this year. You know that kind of inner [...]

We know you’re possibly growing weary of our chronic {and oh-so-effusive!} giddiness over posting each of our wedding couples, but really, we just can’t help it. We surrender already! Case in point: Kaisa + Kevin. Two of the kindest, most sincere individuals to grace our camera lenses this year. You know that kind of inner beauty that radiates? Yup. They’ve got that in spades. Here’s their story.

Kaisa + Kevin, both originally from Thunder Bay now living in Edmonton, approached us about 18 months ago. When we first spoke I was secretly crossing fingers and toes that all would go well because they just sounded like the nicest people on the planet. And by nice, I also mean non-stressed and excited. Needless to say when it was all systems a-go we were pretty stoked!

Kaisa is the youngest of four sisters and had the great fortune of being introduced to Kevin in their adolescent years while he worked at the Gap. Her sister Leena set out on a mission to play match-maker when Kaisa was clearly smitten upon first sight. Time passed, lunch dates with mutual pals at Mcdonald’s ensued and {finally} Kevin mustered up the nerve to officially make Kaisa his girlfriend. It was October 29th, 2000. Since that time he has had to work very hard to prove himself to Kaisa’s protective father {especially with her being the baby of the family!}; it took many a fishing trip and lots of work around the house to demonstrate his worthiness!

Over the past ten years K + K have been through all the challenges young couples face. Break-ups, getting-back-together, more break-ups. Yet they always seemed to find their way back to each other. Fast forward to 2007 while Kevin was in Calgary for school, he came home to TBay for a visit and the two of them made what has been their most strategic {and possibly gutsy!} decision to date: to drive across the country and move to Edmonton together. No money, no job, no place to live…. nothing but a whole lotta love!

But back to their Big Day. And what an incredible day it was… complete with the coolest prop we’ve had to date: Kevin’s parent’s 1965 classic Mustang, fully restored and buffed! This was the same car his mom and dad were married in… if that’s not a fitting and honourable symbol I don’t know what is! In preparation for their actual wedding shoot I did quite a bit of scouting {which loosely translates to: getting lost//more driving//knocking on doors//and asking very kind farmers if we could kindly make use of their stunning property}. I stumbled upon this incredible, idyllic setting that was rich with texture and rotting woods and thought to myself that it would be the most killer backdrop for their vintage-feeling photo session. I think you will see what I mean when you view their images.

But that’s probably enough text for one night…. please enjoy this sneak peek and our heartfelt congratulations go out to you, Kaisa + Kevin. One final note: it meant the world to me when my phone rang at 1:00 am as I was walking up the stairs in my house to call it a day. It was our happy couple… calling to express their gratitude. This little gesture has stuck with me and meant so much! –xo Alvis, Sam, Melissa, Jeremy

Dana Fiorito: My favourite is the triptych of the bride! Beautiful setting! 11.17.2010

Christa: STUNNING!!! These photos totally capture Kevin and Kasia and the day! It is true that they are beautiful people inside and it just radiates out of them! BEAUTIFUL! 11.17.2010

Leslie Wright, Victoria BC: What a beautiful couple. My congratulations to you both. It was a perfect day and the start to a wonderful life together. These pictures will be so much fun when you look back at them in another 30 or 40 years. All the best, Kevin and Kaisa. Hugs. Leslie 11.17.2010

Deiya Wright: We all had such an amazing night! and These pictures are absolutely beautiful! I love you both. O.k I have to say that my 2 fav's are Kaisa in the car looking out the back window, and K&K sitting under the tree! What a night to remember. 11.17.2010

Leena Silvaggio: Absolutely breathtaking! K+K look stunning in all the shots. I cannot wait to see the rest! ..... Alvis, we have a tough act to follow! 11.17.2010

Amy Silvaggio: Kaisa and Kevin, your photos are truly AMAZING! It was a beautiful and fun wedding. While there are so many wonderful photos to choose from, I think my favourite one is also Kaisa looking out the back window of the mustang. 11.18.2010

It’s Monday. So how about we get married? {Kat + Cody}

Most of us fear the dreaded Monday. The word *manic* seems to come to mind (at least in our world!).

Most of us fear the dreaded Monday. The word *manic* seems to come to mind (at least in our world!). But for Kathleen + Cody there was nothing but blissful anticipation happening on Monday, September 20th. You see, in their world a marriage was taking place.

If you don’t have the pleasure of knowing Kathleen personally, we can attest that this is one amazing woman. In addition to being supermom to Mariah (aged 4) and Colton (age 1), Kat works full-time as a nurse and also managed to plan an incredibly beautiful, intimate wedding at the White Fox Inn… all while juggling the everyday curveballs life throws at us. September 20th was also remarkable as in true multi-tasking fashion, it happened to be her 24th birthday {which, if you ask us, is a great strategy for ensuring those important dates are less at risk for being forgotten!}.

Kat + Cody’s wedding had all the right ingredients to make for perfect picture taking: a beautiful bride, mischievious and adorable scene-stealing flower girls, a groom who is clearly ga-ga {and whose mother melted us with her wistful expressions}, nervous jitters, and lest we forget, killer shoes! So, without any further ado, we’ll let the images tell the story themselves. To the happy couple: we wish you a lifetime of continued happiness and we will eagerly await the arrival of your new little girl this Spring. God bless! –xo, Alvis, Sam + Melissa
