Allie & Steve at Powers Creek Retreat


When I first sat down with Allie & Steve it was clear to me that this couple didn’t even think a wedding photographer was necessary. Yes, obviously it was Mom & Dad who thought it more important to have a professional capture the day that this couple would want to remember for the rest of their lives. 


With a strong love for the out doors and for each other, I had a good idea what they would like for photos. Especially after our first consultation because the couple liked photos not for their look and feel but more for the content. When looking through wedding photos they liked anything fun, out-doors, and couple focused. Obvious to them, but I’ve shot for many couples who are more attracted to a specific photo style or a photo concept such as trying to achieve the right pose in the right place, but not for Allie & Steve, they would strike you as a down to earth couple. I could see why they didn’t think that a professional photographer was necessary, but boy where they glad to have had me there after seeing their wedding photos. 


I saw things they didn’t see, and I captured things they did in a beautiful way. Their friends and family had worked hard to create centre pieces, flower arrangements, decorations, and more – now it warms my heart to know that they will be able to look at photos of these items and cherish this brief moment in time. In the beginning it’s not that they didn’t care about their wedding decorations or wanting to look back at the fun times and the candid moments, it’s just that they wanted things to be simple without the complications that go along with some weddings. This I understand and can relate to very well, that is why as a wedding photographer I make it my mission to simplify the process. I want to take the burden off of the couple and the family when it comes to capturing great wedding photos.

Allie and Steve, I’m so glad to have been there for you!  I know we’ll stay in touch, take care my friends!
