Vintage Hotels Winter Wedding // Sandy and Shane

I love weddings! So I was super excited to start my weddings early this year with a winter wedding last month. Sandy and Shane got married on a mild day in January with the stunning Vintage hotels.
The day started with Sandy and her female friends and family members preparing for the big moment in their hotel room at the Pillar and Post. During this time it was important to Sandy that I captured some sentimental images of her and her niece, as they shared several different  pastimes and inside jokes together.

1) How would you describe your wedding style?
This answer will vary from photographer to photographer as each has created styles and techniques that best suits their business and their clients needs.
As for myself, I would say my style…

Icing Sugar Photography: How, why and when.

I absolutely love what I do. From newborn sessions, to weddings, I really enjoy everything I photograph. But it's not just the photography aspect, I also enjoy the business aspect. The emails, the research, meetings and the marketing. I truly love every part of being a photographer. But how did I come to this chapter of my life. When I was a small kid did I say "I want to be a photographer when I grow up!" No, more likely I probably said " I want to be a vet" Or "When I grow up I want to be a teacher", or something else typical of a 6 year old to say. So at what point in my life did I turn to photography as a career?

As a child I was always divulged in the artistic world. In the second grade my grandmother had me painting water colour landscapes, many of which are still hanging on the walls of my parents home. I took art classes outside of school, after hours, and all my high school classes revolved around any for of art I could take, including photo…
