Montreal Wedding Vendor Interview: Anita Phillips of Creative Expressions, Montreal Wedding Stationary

Posted on 16 October 2017 | No responses

This month we are highlighting Anita Phillips of “Creative Expressions” Montreal Wedding Stationary, who I have known and worked with since I started my company back in 2007 when we were practically  Montreal Wedding Planner, Montreal Wedding Planning, Wedding Planner Montreal, Montreal Weddings, An English Rose, An English Rose Wedding Planner, Rachel Cripps-Gervais, Eastern Townships Wedding Planner, Wedding Planner Eastern Townships, Eastern Townships Weddings, Eastern Townships Wedding Planning, Montreal Wedding Day Coordinator, Montreal Destination Wedding, Montreal Same Sex Weddings, Anita Phillips, Creative Expressions, Creative Expressions Wedding Stationary, Montreal Wedding Stationaryneighbours!  What I love about working with Anitia is her total professionalism and how highly regarded she is in the industry.  In addition she really ‘cares’ about the creativity of her clients wedding stationary and customises each piece exactly to match.

What made you become a Stationary Designer?

All of my life I have had a love for paper and all things beautiful!  After a successful career in the Pharmaceutical industry and upon having my two boys, the opportunity to design and create exquisite stationery finally became a reality!  While raising my boys I started Creative Expressions and it has blossomed into the luxury design studio it is today!

How long have you been in business?

I have been in business since January 2004, so it has been 12 years!!  How time flies!

On average how many weddings do you do each year?

On average I do about 30-35 weddings/events a year.

What is the one thing you love most about being a stationary designer?

I love the creative process, working with amazing clients and the opportunity to work with beautiful papers from all over the world every day!

Do you have a specific style or theme?

My style has evolved over the years based upon my clientele.  However, I do specialize in the use of fine papers and fabrics imported from all over the world (Thailand, India, Tibet, Italy etc.)  My style incorporates these fine papers, fabrics, as well as other unique materials into the works of art that each hand crafted invitation becomes.

What are your favourite styles?

My favourite styles are the invitations incorporating suede and velvet, textured or smooth and on the other end of the spectrum, I also love the designs incorporating real wood.  Both of these styles, although very different exude a warmth and luxury that is unique and exquisite.

What are the biggest mistakes couples make when choosing their wedding Stationary?

The biggest mistake couples make when choosing their wedding stationery would be trying to incorporate too many ideas and or paper types into one design.  Many brides and grooms come with many inspirations they have seen online and wish to incorporate it all.  It is very important to remember that each invitation design should have one main focal point.  For example, if we are designing an invitation with a lovely laser cut design then we should focus on that feature, letterpress is beautiful on its own,  etc.

What do you think distinguishes your work from others?

I think that our unique collections of imported papers, our fine print processes, our impeccable attention to detail and exemplary customer service distinguishes our work from others.

What advise can you give to the 2018 Brides & Grooms?

The best advice I can give to 2018 brides and grooms is to search online for inspiration, there are so many beautiful images to view and pull inspiration from.  Colours, textures, designs…. let your creative juices flow, skies the limit!   If you come prepared with inspiration images this helps us get to know you and your style quickly and will help guide us in the design process to help make suggestions and capture your vision to make it a reality.

What are the stationary trends for 2018?

Hand lettering and calligraphy is top of the list!  Laser cut is still very popular this year and the use of specialty print methods such as letterpress and foil stamping are also continuing to take center stage.  Then of course, wood has been extremely popular for rustic and vineyard weddings!  My clients love to step outside the box and I am very excited to push the limits with them again in 2018!

Nadya & Stefan’s Country House Wedding

They always planned to have an intimate wedding and it turned out to be just that with 36 members of their close friends and family.

The day could not have been more perfect, and we instilled a small tent for the reception, but the ceremony took place beside a fountain with the back drop of the mountains behind them.

During the ceremony the couple used a “unity candle” and what was special about this was it came all the way from Russia to incorporate the Brides heritage into the ceremony!

Nadya love the strong orange colours and natural tones so we incorporated Burlap Linens with white Napkins and added in the punch of Orange tones with the flowers.  For a small group the couple chose a buffet style menu which they ate a sunset watching the evening change in to night.

The backdrop of the family stone house was perfect for partying under the stars and what I can only describe as an ideal garden wedding!

Montreal Wedding Vendor Interview: Robert Valiante of Ambiance Limousine’s

Posted on 15 September 2017 | No responses

This month we are highlighting Robert Valiante of Ambiance Limousine’s who we trust explicitly and have been working with since I launched my company 10+ years ago!  What I love Montreal Wedding Planner, Montreal Wedding Planning, Wedding Planner Montreal, Montreal Weddings, An English Rose, An English Rose Wedding Planner, Rachel Cripps-Gervais, Eastern Townships Wedding Planner, Wedding Planner Eastern Townships, Eastern Townships Weddings, Eastern Townships Wedding Planning, Montreal Wedding Day Coordinator, Montreal Destination Wedding, Montreal Same Sex Weddings, Ambiance Limousines Montreal, Robert Valianteabout working with Robert and his team is that I don’t need to worry, I trust him and his fleet of cars as he has always given my clients 100% top notch service.  I also love the fact that Robert & Ambiance are flexible in their working style eg. I don’t have to take a car for a minimum of 4 or 5 hours block, and I can book for just pick-up / drop-off services too.  In addition to limousines, they also provide my clients with town cars for the late night pick up at the end of the wedding which is perfect!

What made you start a Transportation company?

As a young man I became involved with the limousine business because of my father in law. I felt an immediate and comfortable attachment to it. Under his mentorship, I learned the “ins and outs” of the business from his experienced leadership.  As time went on, I continued the true and tried tradition of the limousine trade for myself as owner and President of Ambiance Limousines.

How long have you been in business?

I started Diva Limousines back in the early 90’s which led to Ambiance Limousines in the early 2000’s. I’ve been in the business for 25 years.

On average how many weddings do you do each year?

Over the past several years, we’ve been averaging between 80 and 90 weddings a year!

What is the one thing you love most about providing transportation?

I give high value to the satisfaction felt when we’re chosen to contribute and be a part of the wedding couples’ special day.  We see them when they come to visit our showroom and reserve their car(s). We guide them as to what we can offer them according to their budget. We provide the foundation to their day by giving them peace of mind that they will arrive to the altar safely, on time, and in comfort. This reduces the stress level and the couple can enjoy their special day. This, I strongly believe, is what keeps us going strong.

Do you have a special niche of transportation you provide?

The answer to this question is Yes! I came up with this new concept called “Limousin-ing”. In itself, limousining is a niche market requiring a staff that truly understands the subtleties and practicalities of the wedding business. Wedding transportation is supposed to be luxurious. Our cars and Professional Chauffeurs cater to the specific needs of our clients. They’re treated with white gloves, red carpet, and all the fancies they can expect. Whether same sex partners or different nationalities, we offer the same level of service consistent with our motto. Unequalled in service, elegance, and affordability!

What additional touches do you offer?

Montreal is a melting pot of different nationalities from all over. Many times couples fly in their relatives from outside Quebec and other parts of the world. As often as possible, we try to provide drivers that can speak and communicate in their language. We have a diverse group of chauffeurs from different backgrounds and ethnicities. We try to match them up with the contract at hand. We believe that communication is above all the most important thing on someone’s Wedding day.

What is the biggest mistake couples make when choosing their wedding transportation?

In my opinion couples worry on small details that are second nature to us. Although understandable, this line of thinking can wind up costing them money they don’t need to spend.  For example, at times rather than planning a route where 1 car can provide an extra pick up for one of their passengers they believe having an extra car is the answer.  An unscrupulous provider may capitalize on a situation such as this. I for one do not believe in having people spend money that they don’t have to. The limousine company should be their customers’ best friend. Asking the right questions and drawing upon our experiences is something all clients must do. Depending on the circumstance, an experienced limousine company should provide a viable and more economical solution to their situation.

What do you think distinguishes you from others?

I look upon the company as a family. Breaking into our company is not easy as we are selective with who we hire. We have people that have been with the company from the start, since the beginning. That’s 25 years ago! Many companies have a revolving door when it comes to drivers. At Ambiance Limousines, our philosophy is one of stability. It’s comforting to me when clients say we did a wedding in the past of someone they know and give compliments to the driver. I answer them, he still works here!

What advice can you give 2018 Brides and Grooms?

Make your reservations in person. I encourage couples to visit the showrooms to see who they’re dealing with and what cars are being offered. They need to “try it on for size” and feel comfortable with their decision.

What are the new cars / transportation trends for 2018?

We are seeing a trend towards black stretch limos, Navigators and sedan style lead cars. Black is great for pictures and makes for a very classy arrival.

Arielle & Ben’s Riverside Manor House Wedding

Posted on 4 September 2017 | No responses

I started working with Arielle and Ben about 18 months in advance of their wedding when they were living in Texas, during this time they then moved back to Calgary and we planned Montreal Wedding Planner, Montreal Wedding Planning, Wedding Planner Montreal, Montreal Weddings, An English Rose, An English Rose Wedding Planner, Rachel Cripps-Gervais, Eastern Townships Wedding Planner, Wedding Planner Eastern Townships, Eastern Townships Weddings, Eastern Townships Wedding Planning, Montreal Wedding Day Coordinator, Montreal Destination Wedding, Montreal Same Sex Weddings, Manoir Rouville Campbell, Andrew Monia Photography, Six Degrees in Motion Video, Fleuriste St-Elie, La Cabosse d’Or Bakery, A Timeless Celebrations Décor, Elite Sound Waves DJ, Mariages a Bras Ouverts Officiants, Bad Monkey Popcorn, Emilie Levesque Singer, Ambiance Limousinethe wedding remotely for them!

We visited a few places in the Eastern Townships before they chose the Manoir Rouville Campbell in Richelieu which is has beautiful gardens right on the River and a permanent tent for the ceremony to take place.

The ceremony overlooked the river and we created a draped area to arch the couple as well as a customised aisle runner and 4 huge pedestals floral arrangements in Arielle’s colours of Soft Yellow & White….. after the ceremony we moved and re-used the 4 arrangements, 2 for the cocktail area and 2 to frame the sweetheart table.

The cocktails took place on an outdoor terrace which we decorated with various shades of yellow & grey and sizes of lanterns on the ceilings while guests were serenaded to the amazing Emilie Levesque – I must admit there is something just a little bit more special having a ‘singer’ during your cocktail hour!

Guests had fun with the polaroid camera’s during the cocktail hour and we also set up a very cute customised chest for the card box and place cards attached to little bells with chalkboard display notices.

Inside the room it was all soft yellow, white’s and grey – we kept the white linens to keep it crisp and then added in yellow with the napkins and chair sashes and grey charger places.  Instead of a standard round or square mirror, we chose 2 rectangle mirrors which we angled on the tables one side for the flowers and one side for the candles and then decorated the tables with crystals.

Arielle’s mother who was not able to attend the wedding, still took time to make little Hershey Kisses holders in the bride’s colours which were then placed in boxes with more ‘kisses’ as the couples favors.

Guests enjoyed a beautiful 4 course meal and then danced the night away to the sounds of “Elite Sound Waves” and later in the night enjoyed some Pizza and Poutine!

“The decision of hiring An English Rose for their wedding planning services was the best decision we could’ve made! Rachel was there for us every step of the way, recommending the most professional and reliable vendors, taking the time to get to know us as a couple and making sure that our wedding decor was absolutely perfect and reflected our individual style. 

On the wedding day itself, Rachel coordinated every detail and worked with all the vendors to ensure everything was on schedule and was where it should be, she even dealt with last minute weather changes and worked with the venue to relocate the cocktail area to a better place that wouldn’t be so wet due to the rain.

Hiring An English Rose allowed us to enjoy our wedding day to the fullest, as we didn’t have to worry about last minute upsets. Everything was taken care of, so we could take in every moment of this magnificent day.

We are forever grateful to An English Rose for helping us make our wedding day the most beautiful and memorable day of our lives.”

Stefanie & Trevor’s Hollywood Wedding!

Posted on 6 August 2017 | No responses

Stefanie also wanted to have a “Hollywood” theme with a Black Tie wedding and a colour scheme of Red, Black & White.  They also wanted to bring in some of Stefanie’s Jewish background, so did this through the ceremony and incorporated some traditional elements here, with the breaking of the glass and circling the Chuppah.

The ceremony room was decorated with red & white flowers, and two large pedestals and faux red rose balls to surround the couple, we also used lanterns and smaller faux red rose balls to decorate the aisle which we then re-used to add touches to the cocktail room and also the table of honor!  What was also very cute was that the groom wrote a love note on the bottom of Stefanie’s shoe and the Bride wrote a love note on the back of Trevor’s tie!

Everything was on site at the Sheraton Hotel, Dorval which certainly makes it easier for the guests and during the cocktail hour we served a very special cocktail called “The Skyla” named after the couple’s daughter who was born 10 months before the wedding.

Instead of a traditional guest book we created a “Wish Tree” where guests could leave their messages of wisdom and love which the couple will then turn into a book of memories.  We also set up a table with photographs of all their loved ones who were no longer with us and I placed a simple red rose beside them.

In the reception room we kept the design simple with a glitzy beaded lamp in the middle of the table placed on a mirror with a single red rose in the middle, white linens and then bought in black napkins to follow the ‘black tie’ feel.

During the evening the Bride and her bridesmaids had been working hard for months on a choreographed “Spice Girl” medley which took everyone by surprise and blew the groom away!

Lastly while guests were enjoying dinner, we bought in a company to set up a “Popcorn” Bar which guests then treated themselves to before they left.

Olivia & Andrew’s Vintage Vogue Wedding!

Posted on 2 July 2017 | No responses

Montreal Wedding Planner, Montreal Wedding Planning, Wedding Planner Montreal, Montreal Weddings, An English Rose, An English Rose Wedding Planner, Rachel Cripps-Gervais, Eastern Townships Wedding Planner, Wedding Planner Eastern Townships, Eastern Townships Weddings, Eastern Townships Wedding Planning, Montreal Wedding Day Coordinator, Montreal Destination Wedding, Montreal Same Sex Weddings, Montreal Vintage Wedding, Groupe Madison, Brian Limoyo PhotographyWe absolutely adored working with Olivia and Andrew and it was more exciting as we also planned the wedding for Andrew’s sister Tanya a few years back and the whole family were such a delight!

Olivia took my breath away when she arrived at the church for the ceremony as she looked like she had just stepped out of a vintage vogue magazine from the 1950’s Hollywood glamour as you can see in the pictures below.  She wore a short veil and a gorgeous vintage head piece.  The top of her dress was adorned in beading with short sleeves and an open diamond shape to the back.  Her long black hair was placed in an up-do and she wore her signature ‘red’ lipstick… hence a vintage vogue bride!  She also carried the most cute clutch bag saying “Mrs” on it!

Their ceremony took place in Vaudreuil, close to the couple’s home in a beautiful catholic church not far from the waterfront and guests then traveled to St-Leonard to celebrate at Le Madison.

Olivia and Andrew chose Black & White for their colour scheme, the bridesmaid’s and mothers were in long formal black dresses and the groomsmen and dads in ‘Black Tie’ so an elegant affair!

Upon arrival guests were greeted by the couple’s table plan which I thought was such a great “Do It Yourself” idea, they bought 2 frames which were about 10 frames stuck together and then mixed their tables with pictures of themselves.  To draw attention to the table plan we also had 2 large black & white balloons either side of the table plan.

With the Bride being Italian and the Groom being Portuguese you can imagine the food was amazing and Food Stations covered the dance floor and around the room – everything from Risotto, Meats, Cheeses, Lamb Chops, Kebabs, Oysters & Grey Goose, to more and more!

Inside the room, we kept it elegant with white linens, black napkins and tall white centre pieces, we also had white chivari chairs with black cushions and we also kept the lighting around the room white to accentuate the beautiful mirrors on the walls.

The bride and groom chose a raised sweetheart table with a White Baroque Table and a Black Banquet, we added a smaller white baroque table and placed the couple’s initials on this surrounded by candles and flowers.  We also added 2 oversized balloons for either side of the sweetheart table.

Olivia with her ‘DIY’ skills also added beautiful lace to regular votives to give them an extra touch and we hand wrote the table numbers on small mirrors for the tables.  The couple continued with using images of themselves for the menus on the tables, as well as creating a ‘Photo Book’ with their engagement shots for the Guest Signing Book.

Guests enjoyed a sumptuous 4-course menu with pink champagne for the toast and the beautiful carrot wedding cake was served as dessert, but don’t forget just a couple of hours after dinner Le Madison outdid themselves with a stunning midnight table.

For the favours they had bottles of Portuguese Red Wine with customised labels as well as sugared almonds on the tables.

Fun was had from the moment guests arrived with dancing throughout the courses with music from Portugal and Italy…. Then Stefan and his team kicked off the party until the early hours of the morning!!

What made you become a florist?

I grew up surrounded by Flowers.  Every day, when I came home from school, I would walk into the flower shop and look at the fridge and see what new variety came in.  On week-ends, I would take old flowers and practice making arrangements.

How long have you been in business?

Our “family: flower shop has been in business since 1963!

On average how many weddings do you do each year?

I would say about 40…. But who’s counting…

What is the one thing you love the most about being a florist?

Hard to narrow it down to just one thing…. one of my favourites is meeting wonderful people and being part of their special day.

What would you say is your design style?

I can’t say we have one particular design style, we really adapt to what each client wants.  We can create contemporary florals as well as garden style arrangements.

Tell us some of the seasonal Flowers

All flowers are imported in Montreal, this allows us to have a large variety available all year round.  But there are a few flowers that remain seasonal, such as ………

Spring: Tulips, Hyacinths and bulb flowers

Summer: Peonies

Fall: Dahlias

Winter: Renonculus, Anemones and Amaryllis

What is the biggest mistakes couples make when choosing flowers?

“PINTEREST”!   Pinterest is a great tool when looking for inspiration.  We (including myself) often get carried away with the beauty and grandeur of these photos and events and we forget reality.

What separates your work from others?

Special attention, quality and service.

What advise do you have for Brides and Grooms for 2017?

When planning your wedding, surround yourself by vendors that you feel comfortable with and that you trust.

A Montreal Wedding Venue: The Newly Opened “Le Mount Stephen Hotel” Launch Party!!

Posted on 2 May 2017 | No responses

Well Monday night was a much anticipated night in the Montreal hospitality industry, finally the launch party for the opening of the new Le Mount Stephen Hotel on Drummond Street in the Montreal Wedding Planner, Montreal Wedding Planning, Wedding Planner Montreal, Montreal Weddings, An English Rose, An English Rose Wedding Planner, Rachel Cripps-Gervais, Eastern Townships Wedding Planner, Wedding Planner Eastern Townships, Eastern Townships Weddings, Eastern Townships Wedding Planning, Montreal Wedding Day Coordinator, Montreal Destination Wedding, Montreal Same Sex Weddings, Le Mount Stephen Hotel, Bar George Montreal, Montreal Wedding Venueheart of downtown Montreal.

Chris and I were on the invite list and we had a great time and on a personal note I was very happy to see that not much had changed to the heart of the original building in terms of the decor and style of the original house dating back to 1880 when it was first built, however the new “Bar George” and Restaurant has certainly added some interest with it’s “British” Flair in memory of George Stephen who was originally from Scotland and spent his final days in England!

In one of the rooms there is now a very trendy oval bar in the centre of the room serving the British summer drink of “Pimms” (which I drink all summer long) and the new restaurant again in two of the original rooms is open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner daily with a weekend Brunch – check out the menu for some Scotch Eggs, Pasties, Haggis and even some “Eton Mess” & so much more!!

Now as soon as you walk behind the staircase, you are transformed into a totally different time warp with a very modern reception area decorated in black, white and silver!  There is a small lounge area to relax and the main new Ballroom leads off the reception area.  What I loved most about this new space is that it still has some of the original ‘outside’ walls of the Mount Stephen House as an inner wall to the Ballroom….. Now this space is very modern with high ceilings white walls and ceiling lights that can be changed multiple times or set to the colour scheme of your wedding or event – it’s going to be wonderful for all Montreal weddings and can hold up to 400 guests (I am presuming that is for a cocktail event).

I also noticed walking around there are multiple terraces, which will be great for outdoor ceremonies or cocktail parties!

They have 90 rooms over 11 floors with Superior rooms at $500.00 and a few two-leveled “Sky Lofts” which are perfect for a client to have a small meeting or 5 a 7 with clients at $900.00.  Now of course they have a Penthouse Suite… called the “Royal Penthouse” which is situated on the 11th floor with glass ceilings, office area, lounge area, dining room with full kitchen (Chef supplied) 3 Bedrooms, outdoor terraces and more!  Now a couple of prices were thrown around, but you can guess anything from $6000.00 – $8000.00 a night for this Penthouse would be about right – and of course like me if you have to ask… you can’t afford it LOL!!

The hotel also offers a Spa, Fitness Centre, numerous other meeting rooms and underground valet parking!

I for one am very excited to be able to host a wedding at this amazing new space and of course enjoy a few more glasses of Pimms to go with their Scotch Eggs :O)

For more information, please do not hesitate to CONTACT US  on how you can create a modern wedding in a beautiful historical building at the new Le Mount Stephen Hotel

Lianne & Jeremy’s “Moulin” Country Wedding

Posted on 31 March 2017 | No responses

Lianne and Jeremy planned their wedding with our help from Edmonton and we didn’t actually meet the Bride and Groom until the day of the Wedding, but I can tell you as we laughed often, they Montreal Wedding Planner, Montreal Wedding Planning, Wedding Planner Montreal, Montreal Weddings, An English Rose, An English Rose Wedding Planner, Rachel Cripps-Gervais, Eastern Townships Wedding Planner, Wedding Planner Eastern Townships, Eastern Townships Weddings, Eastern Townships Wedding Planning, Montreal Wedding Day Coordinator, Montreal Destination Wedding, Montreal Same Sex Weddings, Moulin Jasmin de Calliere, Camelia Photography
were the most laid back couple I think I have ever worked with and would love all my couples to relax a bit more like them!

Lianne loved the idea of a rustic wedding in an old mill so we found the Moulin Jasmin de Calliere which was perfect as it was approx. 30 mins from where their families lived!

We also worked with a number of local west island vendors, some of which I had been working with now for 9+  years ever since I started my business, so it was like going down memory lane working with them again.

We kept everything natural for the couples wedding with soft white linen’s and napkins… Lianne’s father made some beautiful log pieces which we then stood lanterns on decorated in gold with the table number and surrounded by greenery and orange flowers.

The Signage was also made out of pieces of wood as well as the Guest Signing Book, the couple also made their table plan which showed a picture of the two of them at their high school prom which was very cute.

The couple even had a great “Mr & Mrs” sign which we placed on the sweetheart table again out of logs of wood which I loved!  Later in the evening they turned them over so that they read “Thank You” – great idea!!

The cake was rustic in style, again with flowers decorating and later in the evening the couple created a popcorn bar out of pumpkins!

Montreal Wedding Vendor Interview: Tim Chin Photography

Posted on 24 March 2017 | No responses

This month we are highlighting Tim Chin Photography and I was first introduced to Tim Chin through another great photographer in Montreal when I was looking for someone with a more uniqueMontreal Wedding Planner, Montreal Wedding Planning, Wedding Planner Montreal, Montreal Weddings, An English Rose, An English Rose Wedding Planner, Rachel Cripps-Gervais, Eastern Townships Wedding Planner, Wedding Planner Eastern Townships, Eastern Townships Weddings, Eastern Townships Wedding Planning, Montreal Wedding Day Coordinator, Montreal Destination Wedding, Montreal Same Sex Weddings, Tim Chin Photography
style for a celebrity wedding I was planning back in 2010, sadly he was already booked, but this did not stop us from working together along with his wife Angela many times since them!

What made you become a Photographer?

It started, innocently enough, as a hobby. Angela was singing regularly in a gospel choir, and I would follow them with my brand new Canon Rebel XT in a mix of dedicated husbandly support and a dose of Asian techno-geekery. As it turned out, those photos weren’t too bad and I started getting calls around the city to photograph more gospel artists. I was drawn to the raw emotion of people when they sing with reckless abandon. Music, especially gospel music, requires the musicians to believe in every note that they belt out. It is real, authentic, and it’s so visually interesting.

How long have you been in business?

I started shooting professionally in 2006.

What is the one thing you love most about being a photographer

I fell in love with the immediacy of a photograph – you push the shutter, and you’ve literally captured a moment. What was once fleeting, is now forever. I became a collector of moments.

Do you have a specific style?

I consider myself very documentary style, although not exclusively so. My clients usually are attracted to moments, candid and natural emotions.

How would you describe your working style on the day?

I’m fairly discreet. I try to affect the day as little as possible, and allow the excitement, enjoyment and enthusiasm of the day naturally play out, and then I photograph that.

What are the biggest mistakes couples make when choosing their wedding photographer?

Choosing a photographer only based on price. Photography is not a commodity, it is an investment that increases in value the further we get away from the event. A photographer is besides you for most of one of the most important days of your lives, choose a photographer that understands your style and personality.

What do you think distinguishes your work from others?

I’ve worked very hard at developing my eye to see moments before they happen,  to find and use light to visually highlight emotion, and to use the existing surroundings to frame an image to best tell a story. At the end of the day, weddings are not just about pretty pictures, but about documenting a personal history that culminates on a single day. My goal is to accomplish this with each wedding.

What advise can you give to the 2017 Brides & Grooms?

In marriage as with life, what you do today will affect tomorrow. Invest in things that will last.

What are the photography trends for 2017?

I think these days, as with most things couples are after authenticity in their photos – so staged, or over-styled shoots are falling away to moment-driven imagery that convey real emotion and relationships.
