Best of 2018 / New Brunswick Wedding & Engagement Photography

To say this is a collection of my best work from weddings and engagements that I photographed in 2018 would be a lie. It’s simply a sampling because I after sharing so many remarkable moments and documenting the love of dozens of couples, to share ALL of my best or favourite images and moments would be overwhelming.

What this collection represents is how beautiful LOVE is. Regardless of age, personal style, economical situation, geographical location, religion, sexuality, etc… LOVE is the most beautiful. It is natural, innate, and free. It has the power to bring people together from all over the world to celebrate IT and witness IT. And LOVE is why I do this year after year, even when it’s hard and I think I want to give up (every job has its hard parts, get over it SMP).

This collection also represents things I was obsessed with this year as I challenged myself to photograph wedding days and engagement sessions with less control and more love. These things I was obsessed with this year are hands and feet and grandparents, using reflections or mirrors to help tell a story, documenting details in a way that tells a story rather than just hanging a dress in a tree (though I did that too), capturing images that document the connection between others – not just the couple and embracing the intentional imperfections in my images (grain, motion blur, soft focus).

I’d love for you to make it through the whole collection, but it’s large so I completely understand if you can’t! I just couldn’t narrow it down any further. I guess that is a good problem to have, yeah? Thank you to my amazing assistants this year. A few of the images in this year’s collection were shot by second shooters and I am so proud to have them working by my side! (btw: at the bottom of this post are a few more shoutouts in case you’re wondering who helped make this another great year).

I could not have completed 2018 without the help of some very lovely and funny ladies and their creative talents. Thank you to Stephanie, Andrea, Kirsten, Genevieve, and my main girl Leslie. I can’t wait to see what 2019 has in store for us! (PS: fun fact about Leslie she was one of my 2016 brides and I knew she had a background in photography but had not idea when she emailed in winter 2017 to ask if I needed any assistance for the coming that she become my main second shooter and a great friend!!).

You’ve been much much more than a photographer; you’ve been a guide, a source of support, an expert, and a friend.


You are so talented and we are so lucky that we were able to work with you. Thank you for making the experience so special for us.

Your advice, tips and guidance along the way have meant a lot and were so appreciated especially as we navigated uncharted territories (professional photos lol). We always knew we were in the best hands with you.
