Water Front Wedding

Since I moved up here three years ago I had always dreamed of planning a wedding right at the waters edge and with the help of several other people I was able to make this dream a reality. The inspiration behind this shoot was to play of the whimsical elements and the laid back wedding style with an edge.

This style shoot was a fun one and I love being able to collaborate with some inspiring women that are great at what they do.

A lot of couples are moving away from the traditional type of wedding and are really trying to put their own spin on creating something that is uniquely theirs. Brides + Grooms look to create a unique setting by cutting down their guest list, making it a very intimate setting and by bringing in items that are personal to their relationship to enhance the experience.

In this shoot, we wanted to play off a Bohemian vibe while bringing in our own unique flare from being on the Bay. Having our couple go down to the beach and hang out on a pink SUP is not what you would call a traditional style shoot but it totally works.

Anniversary Shoot

My husband and I were looking to do something different for our anniversary and thought a photo shoot with our new puppy Willy would be a great idea. As many of you already know, Willy joined the Twist gang a few months ago and we wanted to get some great shots of him as a little puppy. My husband and I had been going back and forth for years about getting a dog and finally were in the right place in our life that we were able to dedicate the time so we pulled the trigger. He is the perfect dog for the two of us as he is able to play rough with James and snuggle up with me at night. What a joy he brings to our already amazing life!

Whoever said you can’t buy happiness forgot little puppies

Birthday Vacation

Birthday Vacation

Going away for my birthday has somewhat become a tradition for my husband and I over the past 5 years. I love travelling to the west coast of Canada as, in my opinion, it is one of the most beautiful places. It has an amazing vibe and some of the most beautiful scenery around. Anyone that knows me knows that I LOVE wine - and what's better than spending my birthday travelling to different wineries. After about my third day of drinking, I turned to my husband and said how can anyone get sick of doing wine tasting.  Well, after a full fun day of drinking on my birthday, I woke up to one of the worst hangovers and all I wanted to do was sleep :( There is such a thing as too much wine. 

Here are some of my favorite photos.

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT MYSELF

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT MYSELF

I decided to start a blog so I can share all the fun and exciting things that I am doing! It is going to be a mash up of weddings, events, travel, food and everything that sparkles. 

After 5 five long years living and working in Toronto, I needed a lifestyle change. So I decided enough was enough, packed by bags and headed North to Collingwood for a simpler life. Collingwood was a little crazy to most people…who am I kidding…everyone! Moving to the sticks….where is Collingwood?…were just some of the comments that I received. It was a crazy concept for most. 

Starting my own events company with no friends or family in the area was, and still is daunting! But there was no way I was going to let that stop me! A quote that I live by everyday is "Design the life you want to live" which is what I set out to do. 

Design the life you want to live

I have now been living in Collingwood for two years and haven't looked back. It is still really hard some days but what makes up for it is living in one of the most beautiful places in the Canada. 

Look at this blog as a photo journey for everything that inspires me! 

xoxo
