Nick + Amanda: Day After

Friday, August 20, 2010

Four years ago, my cousin Nick did our family the kindest of favors by marrying Amanda. This amazingly beautiful, genuine girl with the sweetest of hearts, and now mother of two of the most delightful kids EVER!

I was honoured and thrilled when she contacted me about doing a ‘day after’ session with them. Nick and Amanda kept their wedding ceremony small and intimate and didn’t get many photos taken. And well, every bride and groom deserve a collection of photos that capture their love and commitment, and I think every bride should get to wear her wedding gown more than once!

Many thanks to Kari of Confetti Floral! She created this gorgeous pink gerbera daisy bouquet for Amanda. Kari, I hope we get to work together again soon :) You can also find her and more of her creations on Facebook.

Some of my favorites…a little love in the blueberry fields…

I love it that Amanda wasn’t afraid to get a bit dirty…

Textured walls + punch of color + stunning couple in love = adore!

It was something ridiculous like 90 degrees out…but I think they managed to raise the temperature even more so…

Yes, they have gorgeous babies too…

The thing is…Amanda’s got inner beauty too. And together they’ve got so much love.

Thank you to our friends who allowed us to use their amazing property! And thank you, Nick and Amanda…much love :)

    These pictures are so sensitive and beautiful. What a gorgeous way to record “love”.

    Thanks Michaela for the opportunity to see your “touch and eyes” as you’ve captured moments to remember. Love, Lori
