Noa’s Bat Mitzvah!

Category: events | January 9th, 2018

Capturing the celebrations of life’s biggest moments is why we love photography. Seeing Noa lead the service in the historic Plum Street Temple was so exciting. She did a wonderful job. And I loved that her parents brought her onesie she wore as a newborn. The celebration continued at the Anderson Pavilion that evening. The carousel was a big hit for the guests of all ages! And there were even dancers to help teach new steps – which made the dance floor packed. Each table had a different group featured and all of the stuffed animals were donated after the party to Toys for Tots. The fuzzy fabric was donated to an animal shelter for blankets. Noa and I connected on our love of animals! Congrats to the family and thank you for inviting me to document the fun!

Thank You for an Incredible Year!

We are so blessed to be able to photograph such wonderful moments in the lives of our couples! From documenting the details to the first kiss to the special dances – we love what we do and hope that it shows! What a year 2017 has been. Thank you to all of our amazing couples who trusted us to photograph their weddings. 

This was such an amazing day to end the wedding season. I knew it was going to be a great day from all of the planning the couple did ahead of time. Plus The Bell Event Centre is one of my favorite locations especially when they are decorated for the holidays. This couple loves the arts and Amy works at the art museum – so when we were chatting about photo locations we loved having the first look at the 21C Museum Hotel.Which is also the perfect place to be photobombed by a penguin. Starting with the details with the girls included a broach borrowed from a bridesmaid’s Grandmother who was married a long time. So sweet! And thank goodness for Liz who helped dry the veil after it had a quick mimosa shower. But at least that meant we had our little hiccup out of the way. After some fun photos downtown we headed to Smale Park for some photos with the Roebling Bridge in the background. This special spot is also where Stoff proposed. The ceremony at The Bell was beautiful from the Mother of the Bride officiating to the sweet Little Prince reading. But the most surprising part had to be the fun music from Star Wars and Lord of the Rings! The reception included a Smore’s Bar, elegant white decor and lots of dancing. The Swedish toast by the Groom, Father of the Groom and the Best Man really helped open the dance floor! Amy and Stoff, thank you for inviting us to document all of the fun. We wish you two all the very best! And a big thank you to their friends and family who made this day a blast! It was one for the books!

A big thank you to the wedding professional who made this day so beautiful!
