Just over a year ago I had the privilege of meeting Erica and Will and doing an engagement session for them that also doubled as an early maternity photo session too. Back then Erica had the cutest little baby bump, and a few short months later they welcomed their adorable little boy Elliot into the world. Fast forward to their wedding day and the reasons for celebration were many! So many of their friends and family came from out of town to join them and it was beautiful to see such a lovely group of people surrounding them and supporting them on their big day. But best of all was that I finally got to meet little Elliot – what a handsome little man! Probably the smiliest and most camera-happy baby I’ve ever met. All he ever wanted to do was look at my camera and crack a huge genuine smile — the perfect little model for me! (and lucky me, I get to photograph his 1-year photo session later this week!)
Erica and Will started their day at a park in St. Boniface for their first look, followed by family photos and some gorgeous intimate wedding portraits just the two of them. We continued on to the Inn at the Forks for their ceremony where their close friend officiated it all (nice touch!). Although they did not have a formal wedding party, they made the time to have photos taken with their close friends and it was clear to see they are well-surrounded by lovely, caring people. The dinner and reception followed by the dancing and partying was super fun and lively – they celebrated well and it was awesome to be a part of it all! These two have love, respect and admiration for each other that is second to none. Together with Elliot, they have a strong bond and already they are proving to be a harmonious little family. Congratulations you both – I can’t wait for our next photo session already!
