Stephanie & Ian - A Gimli Wedding

Stephanie & Ian - A Gimli Wedding

OK, I admit it. Sometimes this job is more fun than actual work. When you have a couple who are this much fun to be around, and a bunch of friends who put the "party" in wedding party... the results speak for themselves.

 Stephanie and Ian wrote their own vows. I love this because it's a window into who they are as people and as a couple. And Jeanette Bridget put together a fantastic ceremony that incorporated both the Jewish and Viking elements just beautifully. But the thing I found most touching about this whole experience was the letter Steph's mom wrote and kept with her wedding dress (which Steph ultimately ended up not wearing) when her daughter was just 2. Just a perfect treasure to find on your wedding day for a young bride about to take the leap of faith. This should be a thing. If you're a past, present or future bride with a daughter, get on that right now! 

But first watch this video...

Chandra & Chris Cinematic Edit

It rained that day. Thankfully it waited till the outdoor ceremony was over, but honestly, even if it had poured all through the ceremony, the amount of love and good feelings surrounding Chandra and Chris would have kept us all warm. 

I really enjoyed the whole process from our initial meeting, through getting to know everyone a little better throughout the day, to adding the finishing touches to the final cinematic edit. Working with Tammy from Divine Weddings made the day run smooth as silk. And the Danny Kramer Band killed it on the dance floor too. There's nothing like live music. 

Fun times for all...

Sports Hall of Fame

The fun part about being an audiovisual storyteller is that I get to tell stories of a lot of different types of things. We shoot a lot of events. Same principle as a wedding but we only get about 90 to 120 seconds to sum up a 5 or 6 hour event. Here is one we did recently for the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame. I have never felt so short as I did standing next to an NBA basketball player. (And his speech was hilarious... you should get tickets for next year's event!)

Sherelle & Oliver

I just had the pleasure of dropping off Sherelle and Oliver's finished movie at their new house in a new development in Winnipeg yesterday. I love new beginnings. A fresh start. The first step on a long journey.

Oliver and Sherelle had lived across the street from each other for ages. They got together when Sherelle needed some help with her math skills. (Being an artist myself, I can totally relate!). Oliver pointed her in the right direction and clearly charmed his way into her heart! 

When I shoot a wedding I get a unique window into people's family life and their relationships. The overwhelming impression from both families and also from Sherelle and Oliver, was a warmth and mutual respect. These are people who love life and love each other. At least, that's how it feels to be around them! Why don't you watch this and see what I mean...

Jasreen & Jasvir - NDE

Nobody parties like an East Indian wedding party. It's 5 days of festivities and by the end of the week people usually look a little haggard. Not Jasreen and Jasvir. At midnight on Sunday night they were out there ripping up the dance floor, huge smiles on their faces. 

We shot both photo and video for this wedding so there is a lot of amazing imagery for you to enjoy today.

A big than you to the team for all your hard work this week. (Aaron, Lise, Maddy and Tamara... you guys rocked it!) 

Here we go...

 

This is the Next day Edit which is a 10 minute edit of the weeks events leading up to (but not including) the reception...

These are some of my favourite photos from the week. Just a little taste of things to come...
