I'm here to tell your story...the joy, the laughs, the tears, and the memories along the way.
Corey and Maria’s wedding day was straight out of a fairytale storybook. Set amongst the forest of Maria’s childhood family cabin near Selkirk Manitoba. This Saskatoon couple staged the most romantic wedding amongst the enchanted forest and said I DO under a large sycamore tree which Maria remembers swinging on as a child…the swing is still there today. Every detail of their day was carefully planned with romance and whimsy in mind…from the notes they left each other in the forest to their first dance under the stars. This wedding that took place at Pineridge Hollow was a dream, one I’m sure all the guests will remember forever.
I was invited to second shoot this wedding by Kristen Booth, a well known Fairytale Wedding Photographer from California. It was completely coincidental that we were put in touch with one another during United 2014 when Jessica & Taigan passed on my name. I was available and located close to this wedding just North of Winnipeg. Kristen and I skyped and made plans to met up the night before the wedding in Winnipeg where we met in person for the first time.
Kristen introduced me to niche photography, where photographers specialize in a very specific type of photography, hers being Fairytale Weddings. Clients value Kristen’s work so much that they fly her all over the world to capture their wedding day, she has gone as far as Ireland to photograph weddings. Her clients share her love & vision of whimsical forests, vintage gardens, picturesque views, old castles, waterfalls as backdrops for their wedding day.
This experience was extraordinary and one I feel so fortunate to have had. Corey & Maria were the perfect hosts, Kristen and her boyfriend Andrew (who proposed to Kristen a week later) were so accommodating and the sweetest to take pictures with. I take this experience with me to every wedding now and put a little bit of fairytale into each of my couple’s day. I will be forever grateful for learning from one of the best in the industry, thank you for the opportunity Kristen Booth Photography!
