R&C engagement

When I first saw that Cameo and Robb had started dating I thought to myself, ‘now there’s a perfect match!’ So when I got a text one day from Cameo saying, “I have news to tell you!” I knew right away Robb had popped the question!

These two are seriously so sweet! I loved watching from behind the lens as Robb would tease Cameo, making her laugh and just seeing the big smiles they have for each other. Hearing the story of their first date was too adorable. Robb took Cameo out to supper at the Fireside Bistro, they were both so nervous and wanted to impress each other. (I’m not to sure if it was Robb or the mushroom linguini that won Cameo’s heart first ūüėČ )

I’m so excited for you two and I wish you more than the best

D&L engagement

Over the past year it has been so awesome being roomies with Laura. Although her engagement to Damen means I must say goodbye to the luxury living at the condo -rip rooftop hot tub- I can 100% say I am beyond ecstatic for Damen and Laura!!

Naturally I was very excited that Laura asked me to do their engagement photos, and they made my job easy breezy, being so cute and natural together. It was so lovely to photograph this dreamy couple.

It has been so awesome getting to know Damen and Laura better and see first hand what an awesome team they make, being able to put together a wedding in two months is testament to that alone! You guys are such a sweet couple and I so look forward to sharing the same city as you two!

Oh Canada!

Always so much memory making when back home in Saskatchewan. ¬†Boat races in the stream, swimming and story telling over the fire. ¬†Snake/frog/moose hunting, valley exploration and food (pizza pops), food (Old Dutch chips), and food (fish head soup)! ¬†And it wouldn’t be a trip to the Petays house without a boom and something flying through the air. ¬† ¬†instagram2









AND this happened!! ¬†Our large family is hard to get together all at one time much less convince everyone to pose for a family picture! ¬†When planning our trip home it didn’t look as though we’d all overlap at any point. ¬†So this actually wasn’t suppose to happen but here we all are…together for a couple of hours AND making time for a family photograph!

Monday@2 – family

What does your Monday at 2pm look like?

Photos in order of timezone:

I had planned at bike trip around Alajärvi Lake but duck season opened at 12 noon today, several hunters were out firing shots on the lake so I stopped at 2pm at the Pynttäri grain elevator to photograph a favorite structure.

Day two of being sick with a cold (a cold, in the summer?  not cool!)  So I decided to lounge instead of cleaning up the dust bunnies that have invaded my house!
