The Gorgeous Engagement of Mike & Stevie

November 14, 2014  |  Love Shoots, Lovely Couples, Real weddings  |  3 Comments

Well, dearly beloved wedding friends, we have come to that part of the day when it is all about the shutter candy.  And today we have something that is the venn diagram of sublime and sweet to send you smiling into the weekend.

The eyegasms are coming to you courtesy of MarieSam Sanchez, who is transporting us to California – as and to borrow from ‘Pac there is zero doubt about it.  The couple who you get to salivate over in pixel form only are the lovely and in love Mike and Stevie, and we are happy to bring their gorgeous engagement to you digital viewing device of choice – might we add we love this couple, their sense of fun and joy  litterally fizzed out the screen and cascaded down our desk!


MariaSam shared: Mike and Stevie got engaged on a beautiful night in downtown L.A. so they wanted an engagement session that also highlighted the city where they made their promise to each other. Although they both asked for their photos to focus more on scenery than on them, it was difficult to ignore the sweet connection the two shared. So we went on a fun adventure in the heart of downtown L.A. capturing the sights, unique architecture and vibrant colors while also focusing on the fun-loving spirit between these two.  This lovely couple will be saying “I Do” on a beach in Costa Rica in December 2014!


So, time to get real comfy cosy on that chair – grab yourself a cup or glass something (gin’s okay for Friday not for Monday or you’ll be in rehab!) and give a salute to the work of MarieSam Sanchez.  Lovers, it’s time for shutter candy to begin!

P.S love Stevie’s Carrie Bradshaw style – tutu and a vest top for the win!

The Gorgeous Mountain Elopement of Aly & Jo

The Gorgeous Mountain Elopement of Aly & Jo

Well, there are two word that make us happy ‘duvet day’, closely followed up by ‘whoopie pie’ but there is a duo which trumps even that pairing and that is – Mountain elopement.

Yes, you lovely lot that is exactly what we are sharing with you today and the wedding that we want you to enjoy vicariously is that of Aly & Jo – and we are going to hand you over to the amazing photographer, Chloe, who lensed these beautiful images.


Aly & Joe are just your typical young couple from England who wanted to do their own thing when it came to their Wedding. Having been engaged for 3 years & on an extremely tight budget coming all the way from England to elope, they could barely afford to hire a photographer. Their cousin just happened to be a very close friend of mine & she told me their story. Of course I jumped at the opportunity to help them out. Little did I know they would be having an incredibly intimate mountain elopement at the most picturesque lake in Alberta.


On the big day, my drive up was a little bit concerning. There were clouds in every direction with not one mountain in sight. I couldn’t see Rundle Mountain from Banff Avenue, when it all of a sudden started to pour with rain. After informing the bride & groom the weather situation their devastation started setting in. We went forth with everything & gathered our gear to hit the road. After about 30 minutes the rain had stopped & the clouds were starting to disappear. We had arrived at Moraine Lake with mountains all around us blanketed in snow, a lake so blue & so still it looks like glass.  A bonus was that there were very little tourists – so it was like we had the lake to ourselves.


These images I poured my heart into. I wanted to not only capture the beauty of our surroundings, but the deepest love these two have for each other. Travelling all the way from England to marry in the mountains, I wanted to make this session my most memorable one yet. I wanted to show their loved ones back home these images, leaving them speechless. I feel absolutely privileged that I was not only a guest at this Wedding, but that I was able to capture it for them.

I gained a great experience & some of the most beautiful work I’ve ever done, but more importantly an amazing new friendship with some of the kindest souls I’ve ever worked with.

With those beautiful words, it is time to let shutter candy begin!

The Gorgeous Engagement of Mike & Sophie

The Gorgeous Engagement of Mike & Sophie

It’s couple time and we have some gorgeous images from Jamie Waters Photography, and the lovely and in love couple are Mike and Sophie.


We are off to Wiltshire to frolic (visually and not anything else you lot!) in the sunshine with this couple who are the epitome of a sublime Sunday.  Jamie shared:


Mike and Sophie are celebrating their wedding at the Royal Holloway University, a wonderful magnificent building which will surely be the perfect setting for their wedding day. So we thought we would all meet up at the University for a quick recce and then on to Windsor Great Park for some engagement snaps.

A pleasure to photograph these two; fun, relaxed and always up for the odd photo suggestion!

Good times on a sunny Sunday afternoon

Time for us to share the good times here and now and let the shutter candy begin!
