Brian and Keri’s wedding was a beautiful celebration of love and laughter. An intimate gathering with close friends and family in the beautiful Danforth Inn, complete with gorgeous flowers and amazing food, it was a perfect (and very snowy) Valentine’s Day marriage. I just love it when couples read handwritten vows, and Keri and Brian’s were so genuine, heartfelt and funny – that I have no doubt that these two have a long life of happiness together in raising their daughter. They also had one of my favorite kiss-moments, when Brian surprised Keri with a step stool before planting the official kiss – so adorable. And thoughtful. And fun. Thanks for inviting me to be a part of your beautiful day, love birds. It was hands-down my favorite Valentine’s Day ever (shhh, don’t tell the Hubbs!)

Valentine's Day has been around, as we now celebrate it, since the 18th century, when English lovers would send each other flowers, confections, and little notes called 'valentines'. Some people loathe the holiday, calling it a 'Greeting Card' invention to generate more sales, but love it or hate it, V-Day is securely embedded into our holiday schedule. As many as six million people are planning or expecting a proposal on Valentine's Day, which accounts for 10% of marriage proposals.

Whether you are one of the six million, or you are planning a pink and red, or heart themed wedding, there is tons of fun inspiration out there! The traditional images of hearts, doves, and Cupid, as well as the colors pink and red, have become synonomous with the celebration of Valentine's Day, but also can easily be carried over to wedding decor no matter what time of the year it is.

If you're brave enough, winter is a great time to take photos, especially if you want to highlight your love of the season without getting married in the cold!

As a photographer and past-bride, I always recommend an engagement portrait session. Are you questioning whether or not to have one? DO IT. This is why:

Comfort. If you are apprehensive around cameras or intimidated by having your photo taken, it will show in your wedding portraits. Engagement portraits are a great time to get to know your photographer better, strengthen your relationship and see how they work. For us as photographers, it’s the perfect time to find your best angles, what makes you smile naturally, and your personal preferences. Let’s face it, not everyone is a model, and most people (including myself!) don’t know what to do in front of a camera, but it is a photographer’s job to make you look good. Once you see your photographer’s vision and process you will feel so much more comfortable – that, in my book, is priceless.

An Engagement Session is a great time to get to know your photographer better, and to take time to be a bit more creative.
