I met Emily many miles from Toronto in a small town in Eastern Quebec. Trois-Pistoles was the start of our friendship and I never dreamed I'd be photographing her wedding so many years later. We were both part of the Explore French-immersion program and went on a biking tour on Route 183 (the whale route!) beginning in Les Escoumins. We watched pods of whales surface, hiked, and tried to communicate in our mediocre French. When Emily emailed me about her wedding, I was so excited. She told me about her intimate ceremony, and how she wanted every part of her wedding day to be relaxed and sentimental to her. The ceremony was held at an abandoned school house in the Niagara region and the reception was at Oast House Brewery. Emily and Jeff your love inspired me. It's so genuine and real, and I felt impacted being apart of this celebration. Thank you so, so much for having me.
