And the Winner Is…

January 14, 2010

Amanda and Neal! Congratulations to the newlyweds!

It was a very hot summer day in August that Amanda and Neal decided to say ‘I do’ in Eastport, Newfoundland.  They chose to do a ‘First Look’ which means they decided to see each other for the first time before the wedding ceremony.  After seeing each other in a private beach location we began their photo session.  One of the sites we thought of was an old barn that was in Neal’s family.  Neal was very patient with me as blinded him a few times setting up my lights.  But once I told them to get lost in each other it wasn’t hard to get just the right image.

For me this image says many things. I love the cover and vibrancy of the barn, light and especially the grass. But as the light forms an outline and draws you into the couple you can’t help but be taken by the moment of newlyweds, stowed away in a cool barn from all the excitement and celebrations, hoping to steal just a moment from everyone…including me.  Wedding days definitely do and should focus on the celebration of marriage but I also believe that every wedding day should include a moment like this one!

This image is one of my favorites from the day.  Now it’s time for Amanda and Neal to choose their favorite and claim their prize on a canvas!

    I am sitting in a hotel, at 7 am, in Edmonton waiting to go back to Hay River and I had to see if there was a winner yet? WOW!!! Can’t beleive it! Thanks so much everyone!!! Neal & I cannot believe all the support we received from our families, friends, collegues, students, friends of friends and even some strangers too! Thanks to all of you and especially thank you to Charla for that special image and for all the special images you took that day! We look at them often and remember what a fabulous day it was and how lucky we were to have a tropical wedding in NL turn out the way it did! Not only did we have the weather but we had all of the people we care about so much there to share it with us, that’s what made our day so special!

    To all the brides and grooms in the images above, it was a great competition and all of these fabulous pictures deserve to be splashed onto a canvas for everyone to see! Congratulations to all of you and I hope you are enjoying your first year of marriage as much as we are!(p.s. I even had a hard time voting for my own picture because all of them are so beautiful!) It’s crazy how talented you are Charla and this contest shows how much people love your work!

    Well, I thought the hard work was over with the contest but it seems that the hard work will be trying to pick out our favorite picture from the hundreds you took that day to put on a canvas, how will we ever decide? Maybe we’ll put it to a vote…;-)
