A & S - Foggy St. John's Wedding
I met Alex and Stephen for their engagement session back in November. We spent the session exploring manuals river and I got to know them a bit better as a couple. A few months back I got a message from Alex saying she had some exciting news – she found out that she was expecting and wanted to know if we could do something special as far as the pictures go. I am always up for anything and loved the idea of making the wedding more special.
Flash forward to April 28th. It was a sunny morning with a chance of showers later in the day (typical Newfoundland weather). We headed out to Paradise to capture the bride and her squad getting ready. The getting ready photos are always my favorite because there are so many emotions and I get the chance to capture so many candid images. From there we headed to the Bella Vista in St. John’s for their indoor ceremony. As much as I love outdoor ceremonies it is always a different challenge shooting indoors and I love a challenge! They said their vows in front of family and friends and then were off to take some pictures.
Our first stop was St. Bon’s arena. The groom and his groomsman are on a team together and the bride is also a huge hockey fan so of course we had to do some pictures on the ice. After that it began to pour so we headed to Chinched Bistro on Bates Hill since Alex is the garde manager/ pastry cook there. This was my first time going there and it was such a cool experience. Luckily once we were done there the rain stopped enough for us to do some pictures at the docks near Fort Amherst. Those were the three locations that they wanted to have their pictures done and we ended up having some extra time so Alex asked me to surprise her with a location. After talking with the bus driver we picked Cuckold’s Cove. At that point the fog had started to roll in and created the most magical landscape. I was so happy that they loved the location and we ended up getting some of my favorite images ever.
After the fun of the pictures were done it was time to party. We headed back to the Bella Vista where it was transformed into a beautiful reception space. After cocktail hour it was time for their special surprise. They decided to do a gender reveal with Stephen shooting a hockey puck that would reveal pink or blue. It was such an emotional moment and I was so grateful to be a part of it.
