I love when couples have a plan. For something a little different. Marcel and Celine’s wedding is not until next year, but we did their engagement session very soon after they booked me. Why? Because this super couple wanted pictures on their boat. Yes please! Here are some of my favourites!
It was pouring. The day before had been the nicest day we’d had in about 2 weeks, and yet again, it was pouring. Pouring so yard that the valley in my backyard was white, I couldn’t see across, like it was full of fog. Awesome. This would be the last chance we’d get to shoot Monique and Geoff’s engagement pictures, just in time to get a guestbook back for their July wedding. Not to mention a beach engagement pictures. No cover if the torrential rain came back.
Monique and Geoff, thank you for these shots. Thank you for not bailing because of chances of rain!
I hadn’t seen Sally or Bryan since the day of our graduation. That day, we were all just a bunch of scared kids, sitting on that big stage, all getting ready to step into the next big adventure life was going to throw at us. How your suppose to know what you’re going to do for the rest of your life, no one yet has the answer to. I thought I knew what my plan was, and photography wasn’t even part of it. Surprise, more then 5 years later, that apparently was the entire plan.
So when Sally contacted me just after Christmas about getting engagement pictures done, and mentioned it was Bryan she was engaged too, that was another surprise. I didn’t know they were even together, let alone engaged. But these two know their plan, and their plan is each other. Bryan and Sally are one of those couples that make you melt just looking at them. There was no stress, there was no worry, it was just them, in front of the camera, being them. And there was not a trace of that scared kid look we all had years ago, or how cold they were after running around the woods with me for these.
I cannot wait to shoot this wedding later on this year, and I already know how great the pictures are going to be. Enjoy these!

Well, we all blinked and it’s now 2011. Amazing how that happens so fast isn’t it. 365 days sounds like a huge amount of time. Remembering back to January of last year is like remember decades ago, and at the same time feels like it was just last week.
Every year in review post on every blog has something along the lines of “What a crazy year!” or “Wow so much has happened”. I didn’t want to be that blog, but really every year is that crazy. And every year, that much happens.
I’ve collected a bunch of images from all through 2010. Some I’ve blogged, some I haven’t. Some are work work, and some a personal photos. But this was my year, in a blog post, celebrating Scuffed Boots Photography.
<3 Bring on 2011.
PS – These aren’t in any particular order. Just the way the cards fell on the table. :)
