Jesse + Brandy

Another southern Saskatchewan wedding was the perfect way to finish off the summer wedding season. Watching these two (so in love) together made our job easy!! Below is a little look at their day..

Talk about stunning. And something about black and white just gets me every time.

Seeing each other for a first look-

Mr + Mrs Becker

What a sweet, sweet day.

Brady + Candy were married at the family farm on a gorgeous weekend in August. Was lucky enough to be second shooting this wedding (check out more on  http://jcrossondesign.com/becker-wedding/) -it was a day filled with their closest friends and family, special details and a whole lot of happiness.

After getting ready, they shared a ‘first look’..

Styled Dining Shoot

Ever have that when you meet someone who you have so much in common with? Design + photography + a mutual love for coffee + anything whitewashed + etc etc = pretty awesome to get out of the city last weekend and spend a couple days with someone like this. Who also happens to be a grad from the same interior design program. (check out her work on http://jcrossondesign.com)

After a slow morning our creative gears got turning. She was hoping to sell a custom table + some chairs, so with the help of her sister-in-law we set up a little styled dining shoot.

Sounds like Jenaya + I will be doing more photo/design work together in the future- excited to see what comes of it! Stay tuned.

Sask + Convocation

Finishing up my college course meant completing a practicum/internship for a couple months with a design firm (www.kreate-arch.com – check em out) which happens to be in Regina, Sk. Which also happens to have turned into a job placement- glad I get to stay in this gorgeous province longer than originally planned..

One rainy Saturday we took a drive down to some pretty cool country in southern Sask. Wish I woulda taken a few more snaps- but when it’s seriously raining non stop staying in the truck is a lot more appealing

The next weekend was convocation up in Vermilion! Hard to believe its all wrapped up.

Couldn’t have done it without these two ♥

Or without this sweet gal.

May Long

Oh boy seems like updates are few + far between these days.. these were taken well over a month ago from such a fun weekend out in Rocanville. Jeeping, dirt biking and a supper cookout in the prettiest of valleys with the most awesome group – can hardly go wrong with a combo like that!

The line-up consisted of one brand new shiny orange jeep, one never-quitting classic old jeep and one “are you sure that thing is going to make it on these trails?” jeep..

But the license plate sums it up.

Seriously how cool is this thing? Just the best for cruising through the hills.
