Best of 2017: Wedding photography- couples

Wedding Photos London Ontario

To kick off the new year I thought I would put together a series of blogs showing some of my favourite photos I captured in 2017. Below you will see some of my favourite images captured in 2017 of couples- Wedding Photos London Ontario. I have broken up the wedding photography blogs into 3 blogs the past couple of years- couples, parties and moments. This year it will be a little different as instead of doing moments I will be doing something special which you will have to check back on saturday for. This year the Woodgate Photography team photographed 41 weddings and here you will see each of the couples, plus a few from some styled shoots. This blog really shows how much variety we love to capture throughout the wedding day from bright and airy to dramatically lit. We will be at the Wedding Ring bridal show on sunday 11-4 at the Lamplighter Inn with a bridal show special of $250 print credit with any package so come and check it out!

Nova Scotia Wedding Photography

Nova Scotia Wedding Photography

This past weekend was the anniversary of my best friend Dayna’s wedding and so I just had to post some shots from the day.. Even when I’m Maid of honour you still can’t keep the camera out of my hands.. We got ready and stayed at Oceanstone resort and loved the ombre purple dresses. Devon and Dayna’s first look was emotional and then we headed to Peggy’s Cove for the wedding party photos (obviously none of them here as I was in them!). The ceremony and reception were at St Margarets Sailing club and all of the gorgeous decor was painted by my art school friend, and it was a group effort to set it all up the night before with plenty of personal touches. The speeches were emotional and all the east coasters danced so hard we made the dancefloor shake. I loved the Live Art by Najma painting which was done throughout the evening. Happy Anniversary guys, love and miss you!
I would LOVE to photograph more weddings out in Nova Scotia and in most cases I am happy to waive travel fees so please contact me about your east coast wedding!

I’m off to photograph my first destination wedding!

Mexico destination wedding photographer

I leave in the early hours of sunday the 7th for a week in Mexico to photograph this awesome couple’s wedding. I’m happy that my first destination wedding is going to be with friends- Matt was one of the best men at our wedding and Sarah was one of the MC’s. These pics were taken right around 7 years ago when we went to Cuba (looking through the photos from that trip, we look like babies!) and I am so excited to be photographing her wearing a different white dress!

Bucket List 2017

I’m feeling more inspired than ever after attending the WPPI photography conference in Las Vegas this month and after watching countless online webinars. I’ve decided to put out into the universe my bucket list of shoots I want to do this year both here in London, Ontario and Internationally.

  1.  Photograph a wedding in the UK/Ireland/Europe. I really want to finish travelling in Europe and would love to photograph a wedding there. The off season here is Nov-April and so I’m hoping for anytime in there and I would be happy to work within budgets for the great couples/right locations. Here are some shots from the last wedding I photographed in that neck of the woods 5 years ago now! Wedding Photography Kent England-

    2. I would like to photograph more adult cake smashes. These sessions are perfect for 19th, 21st, 30th, 40th, 50th etc birthdays and if a 100yo was willing to do one I would be willing to do it for free! With these sessions you get to have some ‘regular portraits’ whether that be some business headshots, beauty shots, family, couple, pet etc, then we can come up with a theme based around your interests. It’s my 30th Birthday this year (you can see a pic below taken by my associate photographer Clara, on my 28th birthday) so to celebrate every adult cake smash will receive a free 8×10 cake smash collage print.

3. Along with wanting to finish travelling in Europe, I have never travelled to the west coast of Canada so would love to photograph a wedding or elopement out in all of the gorgeous landscapes I’ve only had the pleasure of seeing in photographs. Again, I would be happy to work make a custom package for a great couple 🙂

4. I would love to photograph a pregnant pin up shoot. I think the pin up sessions are so much fun and would love to capture a lovely pregnant mom with full vintage style pin up hair and makeup. I’d be more than happy to work with you on themes that would work to your tastes and click for more info on the Pin Up Photography London Ontario.

5. Engagement or family session for big fans of Harry Potter in Goderich this fall. I grew up reading Harry Potter and I know that there are some big Harry Potter fans here in South Western Ontario, so I would love to photograph a session in Goderich when the festival is on. I wasn’t able to get tickets but I will be on the lookout for them and I’m sure that some of the surrounding area will get into the spirit and will make for a great backdrop.

6. Engagement session at the Western Fair at sunset/night. Below you can see the last session I photographed there, 4 years ago this year! I would love to have some fun there again using my new equipment and knowledge.

7.  Forrats chocolate fondu engagement/ couple/ anniversary session. If you’re a chocoholic like me and haven’t had the pleasure of visiting Forrats in Byron yet, I highly recommend you do and I would love to capture some sweet love while you enjoy a date night (and maybe start across the road for some photographs at Springbank Park as well, for variety.)

8. London to London family/ engagement/ couple/ anniversary session. I have had this idea since moving to ‘Little London’ and would like to find the right people who either have a love of ‘Big London’ or are from England, or some kind of ties to both. The session would take us to a bunch of the London locations such as the double decker bus for Ice Cream and we might end up at a pub, with many other stops in between.

9. Trash the Prom or Bridesmaid Dress group session Do you and your friends still have your prom dresses laying around gathering dust? Maybe that has been awhile but you have bridesmaids dresses that you thought you might wear again but haven’t. I think it would make for such a fun shoot to get together with a bunch of your friends, maybe pamper yourself beforehand with getting hair and makeup, then have fun doing a friends shoot, but getting edgier with with in a fun location and possibly even trashing the dresses in the water, mud, snow or with paint or glitter!

10. Australia I would love to get home in Australian summer 2017/18 or 2018/19 so would love to book a wedding to photograph while I’m there with the exchange rate being right around even my rates are very affordable by Aussie standards.
