Moving On.

Hello beautiful friends... I'm moving!

Love you all,

Okay, where'd I leave off?  Oh yeah!  The railroads.  From the railroads, we travelled again to Garden City Park.  By this time, the mist that was hanging around was turning into full on rain.  There is the most magical tree there...

Hello gorgeous.

So, I came across these hilarious, wavy red bars in the children's park on the way back to the limo... and couldn't resist some photos in and amongst them.  Hey, they were the wedding colours, after all.

Reception details...

And Jessica and Ricky join the party!  Jess had the fabulous Jayna Marie come after the portraits, before the reception, to refresh Jess' makeup and change her hairstyle.  After the rainy day, it seemed like the best idea, ever.  Not only do you get the opportunity to change your look, you have some downtime to refresh before the rest of the evening!

I love this series.  The speeches had everyone in stitches.

Jess' mom made the cake.  (Yes, you read that right.)  Isn't it AMAZING?!

And I'll leave you with some parting party shots... I love playing with the lights on the dance floor.

So, as the happy couple enjoys their honeymoon, I wish them happiness and joy as they continue their journey together.

Love is friendship set on fire.

Jessica said those words to Ricky during their reception, and it has stuck resonated with me ever since. It's so simple and so true. Love is so rad.  Their wedding was epic, hence the two-part blog post.  It's just too much to sit down and edit them all in one go (that, and I have, like, 50 photos to share, and that seemed a little excessive, even for me).

I shot Jessica and Ricky's engagement photos when she visited her hometown, good ol' PR, last summer (see their session here). I knew they were getting married in the city and we discussed her difficulties in finding a photographer that fit over cheesecake after their session one late summer evening. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that she'd email me a couple weeks later, asking me to travel to the city to capture their wedding. I was thrilled.

Jessica got ready at the lovely River Rock Casino Resort, and the gorgeous suite was completely filled with natural light (yay!) despite the rainy day (not yay). The morning was lovely and calm as the bride and her maids enjoyed mimosas and croissants.  Some of the details...

I love the red roses.  Simple, classic, elegant.

Jessica had the fabulous Jayna do all the hair and makeup for the girls (and she even came back to do Jess' hair for the reception).  They were all STUNNING!  Go and visit Jayna's site here.  You won't regret it.

And... the beautiful bride!  Isn't she radiant?  Jayna's hair and makeup work is amazing.

I love that Jessica had both her parents walk her down the aisle.  

The first kiss as a married couple!

After the wedding and family portraits (in the church... it was pouring!), the bridal party and I ventured to Terra Nova Park in Richmond.  It was the perfect location for portraits, even in the rain.

The bridal party was sooo much fun!

The best thing about rain?  Rain clouds.  The light was delicious.

Hellllllo moody skies!

I haven't had an umbrella shot in ages!  Welcome to May weather, y'all.  It can be so unpredictable.  After Terra Nova, we ventured to the railway for a couple more portraits...

Stay tuned for the second post!  I promise, I'll edit soon!

Yay! Drew and Andrea's wedding from 2009 was featured on Canada's daily wedding blog, A Million Little Details at!  A big thanks to Somer from the blog for the opportunity to share my work.

Graduation. Stepping out on your own. Moving on. Maturing.

I've been there (ah, now, that I think about it, it's almost been ten years!). Something about graduation photos (you know, the traditional kind with the cap-and-gown) seem so stagnant. Boring almost. Especially for such a turning-point in a young life.

I'm trying to shake that convention: lose the cap-and-gown. I'm inviting everyone to rock the dress. Rock the tux. You know... just be themselves.

I'm also having a portrait sale for grads from now until June 18th. Email jennifer [at] kennedycorp [dot] ca for booking information and details.

Let me introduce some of the most beautiful grads, ever... Sarah, Marissa and Rachel. Gorgeous, no?

I love big cities, but coming home to a small town.
I love peonies.
I love chocolate, in all its forms.
I love early mornings.
