duke gardens wedding photography – elizabeth’s bridal session

Bridal Session

Back in the early spring, I spent an afternoon with the lovely Elizabeth shooting her bridal photos ahead of her wedding this summer. When Elizabeth had originally contacted me, she was looking to do a session that would allow her to pay homage to her late mother, whose veil she would be wearing on her wedding day. We took that concept and ran with it as the base for the session. When we met up, I also found Elizabeth’s elegant look to be reminiscent of a 50’s film star, so that played into the mood and feel of some of the images. Incorporating these themes along with the spring colours into the session, I think we came away with something pretty unique for Elizabeth to look back on with her family to remember both her mum and her wedding day in the years to come.

Here are just a few of my favourites from our afternoon together. Thanks, Elizabeth, for entrusting me with such an important role and honouring me with such a beautiful experience.

martie ~ brier creek bridal session
I recently had the pleasure of photographing Martie and John's wedding at Brier Creek Country Club. The bridal session took place in mid-September on an unseasonably cold day. However, Martie looked great and we had a fantastic shoot in and around the ballroom. Martie was even brave enough to venture outside for a few minutes! Here's a baker's dozen of my faves from the day. Wedding pictures coming soon...
