Greetings and welcome to my hand-spun blog+site. My photography journey has been incredible! It began with fun, then grew into passion, then I discovered profound love for it and there was no looking back. Please look around, the pictures here are the reflections of how I see the world. Enjoy exploring it.

Newcastle Wedding Gardens; Amanda + Tim

I have been blessed to have met so many wonderful people through the weddings I get to shoot. I know I sound like a broken record, but this is the the truth. And this is one of the reasons I LOVE weddings and think that I should quit everything else to become a full time wedding photographer. I left Amanda and Tim’s wedding (after their grand exit) thinking how lucky I was to know this awesome couple! Shooting becomes even more fun when we build that instant relationship with the couples. Amanda and Tim are a kind who you feel so comfortable talking to and hanging out with!

We had a blast on their engagement shoot last year. It seemed like May was so far off, but it arrived in no time. It did seem like the first day of Summer in the Newcastle wedding gardens. It was a warm and humid day. The location was gorgeous, no doubt. The barn, the willow trees and the beautiful garden made it a perfect setting for their wedding. The details were absolutely gorgeous. I loved Amanda and Tim’s cake toppers; cute birdies dressed in bride and groom! The vibrant color of the flowers were ahhhmaaazing!

I was singing along when the DJ played “Piano man” at the reception! I never heard anyone playing this song at a reception before. The guests were having a great time when Tim’s dad lead the crowd to dance with YMCA! Even the grandmas couldn’t stop dancing. I LOVED and enjoyed every moment there myself.

I was awed by the kindness of Tim, Amanda, her mom and pretty much rest of their families. The newlyweds were making their grand exit at the end of the night. While I was busy capturing their moments, I saw Amanda walking towards me and the next thing I got was a big, warm hug from her! My heart melted right away and I started to tear before I even realized. I am so happy for Amanda and Tim; they are such a sweet couple! I will miss receiving notes from Amanda every month, they made me smile every time I read them! I wish the couple the best of the bests and many, many years of blissful life together.

Here are some of my favorites from the day. Amanda looked amazing as you can see! Please leave some blog love and best wishes for the couple.

  • David McDougall: The small moments in time you have captured are stunning. I especially love the black and white shots and the clever use of the artificial light in the last two shots was pure genius.
