We shot one of our favourite engagement sessions this past fall, at the gardens in front of Rideau Hall. Sopheap and Vanessa – we can’t wait to photograph your wedding this coming September. I don’t even need to say it, but these two are a perfect 10. Could Vanessa be any more glamorous? We had Noah create an old Hollywood make up and hair look to complement Vanessa’s Blumarine gown and the setting for this shoot. (BTW – if you are looking for a hair and make up artist for your big day, check Noah out). These two are quite the stunners in love…. Photography by Joel Bedford; Hair and Make up by Noah V.
We’re so excited about sharing this wedding – we can hardly sit still! We just revealed the photos to our lovely bride and groom and we’re offering you a little preview of their wedding flowers – one of the most decadent and beautiful we’ve seen this season! If you’re in the market for a floral artist, please take a look at Full Bloom Floral – and what Erin has designed for Jessica and Vince. Colour always excites me, and these were nothing short of show stopping. Take a look for yourselves! All photography by Joel Bedford
More to come from this gorgeous wedding soon!
Justyna and I took a trip down to NYC in late October to see our super-good friends Leslie and Kevin. These two were married last year on the street corner where they met in Brooklyn and threw one of the best weddings I’ve ever attended (from what I can remember of it). Though I was in attendance, I wasn’t officially shooting and I didn’t take very many personal shots either (it’s a bit hard to shoot while negotiating a martini) besides this one shot with my iPhone. So we really wanted to get a few shots of their good vibes together. We’ve always wanted to photograph a wedding in NYC, so asked them to throw on their clothes and to shoot a casual session with us down in Dumbo, Brooklyn, to which they happily obliged.
Hoping you can tell by these shots just how fun these two are – Leslie has been one of my best friends for over 20 years and I was really stoked to shoot a few photos her and her main man, Kevin. Thanks again you two! Hoping we can hook up in Vegas over the holidays…? Hope you like your pics!
My good buddy Simon got married to his sweetheart Lori in late September – We were so delighted to be the photographers for this intimate event – Thanks to their son Oli for making Lori’s second bouquet out of small flowers too – made for great wedding photos – you were awesome, kid-o!
My favourite frame for the day – more to come!
