Manuels River Wedding | Vanessa & Matt

Vanessa and Matt’s beautiful wedding day started at out their home in Conception Bay South.  All of Vanessa’s special lady friends had gathered at the house to have hair and makeup done! Not only was Vanessa a beautiful bride, she also had an absolutely stunning bridal party! With the ladies getting their finishing touches done, I popped around the corner to Matt’s parent’s house where he and his best buddies were getting ready!  And then back to their house to watch Vanessa get her dress on! I can officially say that I have met worlds youngest ring bearer!  One of my favourite parts of wedding days are when the Bride and her Mom are tucked away, getting her dress on! This day was no exception! And a first look with Dad is always a great moment! And then a first look with the girls! With everyone ready, It was time to head to the ceremony at the Manuels River Interpretation Centre. Matt was adorably nervous waiting for it to be time!  And then it was time!  When the ceremony was over, it was pouring rain outside. Pouring. And miserable. So I called The Newman Wine Vaults who said that they had a 30 minute opening for photos. RIGHT THEN. And, well, we were still at Manuels River. So we quickly wrangled everyone onto the Party Bus as fast as I could and informed the driver we had no minutes to waste. And we arrived with 7 minutes to spare! It was THE fastest time I have ever set up lights in my life – and then finished shooting couples photos  as our time was up. 
Once we got outside, a dance party had broken out on Water Street.  To try to keep everyone dry for a bit, we headed to the giant culvert at Bowring Park!  And then ventured out to the rest of the park! Now, if I might, I have to tell you about the harrowing story that happened here. I am terrified of rodents.  So whenever I am shooting, I tell my couples that if a rodent appears, to tell my mother I loved her. So, there we are, them beautiful, me drenched, and in sandals. When out of no where a duck comes over and starts nibbing on my toes. And I was too afraid to look down. And I almost died. Thankfully, it was just a duck, and I could continue. But I might need to wear closed toed shoes in the park for the rest of my life.  With all of the photos taken, we  headed back to Maneuls River for the reception!  Matt and Vanessa, thank you so much for choosing me to be such an important part of your special day! I am sure you guys had a wonderful time as you all danced the night away!

Much Love,
Amy

Family Photos at Bowring Park with the Clancys!

Bowring Park Family PhotosI love extended family photos! I get to meet everyone, all on one day!

As an adult, I adore my cousins, so when I can give kids photos that they will look back at when they are older with their cousins, parents, and grandparents, it makes me super happy! I met up with the Clancy clan early one morning at Bowring Park where we did all the family photo combinations and had lots of fun along the way! Bowring Park Family Photos Bowring Park Family Photos Bowring Park Family Photos Bowring Park Family Photos Bowring Park Family Photos Bowring Park Family PhotosBowring Park Family Photos Bowring Park Family Photos

Family Portraits in the Rain with the Glovers!

 

St. John's Family Portraits

The day we were set to shoot the Glover’s updated family portriats, the forecast had absolutely zero idea what it was doing. Nancy and I must have spoken on the phone a dozen times. When we realized that everyone has a tangly schedule and it had to be that day, we went ahead and did it! We started out with 5 minutes of just deeply overcast sky, and then the rain showed up. We really wanted to get these family portraits taken, so we left location one, headed up to Signal Hill where the sky looked a little clearer, and arrived just in time for the rain to show up there too. So, sitting at the GEO Centre waiting for a break in the rain, we thought it looked a bit less dark over top of Pippy Park. So we headed there as quick as we could and found an great little corner of the world where we were sheltered and we got them done!
