A Fun Fall Wedding // Jenn and Tim

My favourite season is fall and since I obviously love weddings, fall weddings definitely fall under a favourite style of mine. Apple orchards, pumpkin spice, colours, cider, and cooler weather, what can go wrong?! 

I got to meet this couple at their engagement session turned family session because they had two adorable daughters who just couldn't be left out! On the day of the wedding they made very cute flower girls! 

Jenn and TIm said I do in the beautiful Gananoque Ontario at the beautiful waterfront Gananoque Inn & Spa. Unfortunately the weather did not hold up in the morning and so we were moved inside for the ceremony and reception. We were able to sneak outside for some lovely lighting brought in by the storm clouds. So brides, if it rains on your wedding day, don't worry, we will still get the shots! 

 

TORONTO BRIDAL PORTRAITS // SHAVONNE

One of my biggest goals as a photographer is to make you feel as comfortable as possible in front of the camera. I want to know how you feel, if you're awkward or you'd rather be serious than smiley or the other way around. It helps me capture YOU if I know what you're feeling. When I took these bridals of my model in a gorgeous dress provided by Lea-Ann Belter Bridal, the first thing she told me was that she felt so much more comfortable smiling, and that she always felt a little awkward trying to smolder. This made our session so smooth. I knew how she was feeling and I knew that the more she was smiling, the better images I would capture. 

So my advice to you is BE YOURSELF! I'll be my goofy self behind the camera if you need help laughing, I'll tell you how to pose if you feel unsure of what to do, I'll be quiet in the background if a beautiful moment is unfolding. The pictures we capture together will look the best if we are all just who we are, and not trying to recreate something that doesn't suit your personality. That way you recognize the person in the picture!
