Newfoundland Wedding Photographers | St. John's, Newfoundland bio picture
  • WELCOME!

    My name is Amy, I am a silly, caring and vertically challenged photographer, and I am thrilled you are interested in having me be part of your big day! I hope you enjoy the images that are my labour of love.

    Before we meet face to face, you might be wondering if we will get along - I would too! After all, you are looking for someone with whom you will spend your entire wedding day with. You should know that I have a fire cracker sense of humour, I love meeting new people, my children are the loves of my life (and their father is a close second) and I tend to fly by the seat of my pants!

    I love to be actively involved in the weddings I will be capturing. I have seen lots of weddings and love to share all I that I know.

    I look forward to meeting you soon!

When I am a very old lady and I look back at all of the things I have done in my life, having the privilege of photographing the momentous occasions of peoples lives will be well at the top of my list of things that I am glad I had the chance to do. I met so many incredible people who I wouldn’t normally get to meet – and some of them have become my very good friends. I feel this way about Rebecca and Shane. Two of the most genuine people I have ever met in my entire life, I loved these two from the minute they sat with me at Coffee Matters and told me they wanted me with them at their wedding. Since that initial meeting, I am happy to have gotten to know them both so much better and I am happy to call them friends. So, on the top of that long list of things that I am happy to have done in my life, right next to ‘Wedding Photographer’ will be “Being a wedding photographer for Rebecca and Shane”.

Here is their beautiful day…
Shane got ready for the wedding in his parents home with his parents, brother and niece. There was no panic, no chaos, just a wonderful close family getting ready for one of their biggest days. Shane met up with the rest of the Groomsmen later, but it so nice that he spent the morning with his family. Shane is living away studying to be a Doctor in Dublin, Ireland and I know his parents were thrilled they got to spend this time with him. Not far away, Rebecca was also getting ready in her childhood home. The girls had all gathered with her family were helping to clue up all the final details as she got got ready. By contrast, it was quite a bit busier, but girls have a way of channeling all of the nervous energy into sheer excitement- which is exactly how things played out! Ta-da!!!
Rebecca’s Dad was the only man in a house filled with girls and sought solace down the hall to get himself ready to give Rebecca away…
The Anglican Cathedral in St. John’s is a stunning church. When we grabbed a coffee a few days before the wedding, Rebecca told me that her parents had planned a beautiful ceremony. She wasn’t exaggerating. In addition the architecture of the church itself, what happened inside was beautiful. Rebecca’s next door neighbor helped to marry them, there were harpists and music. So much music. Rebecca’s Dad played the piano, her brother and a bridesmaid sang ( That doesn’t sum it up. I had cold shivers) and the Mount Pearl Show Choir performed. It was well and away one of them most amazing ceremonies I have ever witnessed. 
Would you just look how excited Shane is to see Rebecca coming up the aisle. If that smile wouldn’t melt your heart…

Just look. Would you just look… This is why I love them. 
If Newfoundland is known for terrible weather, it wanted to prove the world wrong this day. The sun made up for all of the days it didn’t shine in the past 20 years I think!So many beautiful people all in one place! 


Back at Clovelly, the Sun had just started to soften. And then it did all of the amazing things that makes me happy inside when I look at these photos… 



Just look at that sun. Honest to God. Magic. 
St. JohnAnd if we weren’t lucky enough to have had the best light before dinner, the sky was so gorgeous that in that awkward gap while the tables are cleared, We took the opportunity to run (Yes, run – I mean it. Dress, Shoes, Light Stands and all) to catch the last of the pretty sky. And then with the sun tucked away for the night, it was time for dancing…
Rebecca and Shane (and all of Rebecca and Shane’s friends and family!). You are all beautiful and amazing people. I am so happy that I got to spend such a special day with you. I hope you love your images as much as I love the pair of you!

Much Love,
Amy

St. JohnOne of the best parts of my job is that I get the chance to meet so many new people. Perhaps the best part is when I get to catch up with old friends I haven’t seen in far to long! Jenelle is one of the sweetest people I know, and even though I haven’t seen her in over 15 years, meeting up with her and her fiance Paul for their maternity and engagement photos recently was one of the highlights of my summer! She tells me I haven’t changed a bit – and I know for sure she hasn’t! And Paul? Yeah, he is pretty awesome too – I think she will do well to keep him! Here are a few of my favourites from their windy engagement session at Cuckolds Cove (shocking that it was windy – I know!)

St. JohnThe light on the night of Terri-Lynn and Michael’s Maternity session was incredible. It was the type of night where if I wasn’t shooting and was doing anything else, I would wish to God I was working. It was pretty awesome…. Here are a few of my favs from their session!St. JohnSt. JohnSt. JohnSt. JohnSt. JohnSt. JohnSt. John

St. JohnWhen I meet with couples for the first time, I get a pretty good sense of how their wedding will be. Shooting Kayla and Garry’s engagement session in downtown St. John’s, I knew their wedding was going to a great day. And I wasn’t wrong! We started the day in Witless Bay where the boys were all at Garry’s parent’s house getting ready! St. John

I was so excited about the location that Kayla and Garry had chosen for their portraits. They sent me a photo of all the different angles with the water, islands in the background, and tall grass. It was a photographers dream. What was not pictured was the 90km/winds (as verified by Garry’s Dad who checked the facts the next day!). We only had a short time at that location – but I absolutely love what we pulled out of it!St. JohnSt. JohnSt. JohnSt. JohnSt. JohnSt. JohnSt. JohnSt. JohnSt. JohnSt. JohnAll the things make me love this photo. Their expression, their cuddling, the background and the wind sweptness of it all. St. JohnSt. JohnSt. JohnSt. JohnBecause they met at Rob Roy, they wanted to go for a visit on their big day! Thankfully George Street was sheltered from the wind and we got a chance to do some fun portraits of the bridal party and we also got to take some beautiful shots of them.
St. JohnSt. JohnSt. JohnI didn’t know this at the time, but later during the speeches it was revealed that Garry’s ‘Big Move’ the night that he first say the blonde haired girl at the bar was to ask her to dance and spin her continually around on the dance floor. I am happy I got him do this! Apparently it must have worked when he did it! St. JohnSt. JohnSt. JohnSt. JohnSt. JohnSt. JohnSt. JohnSt. JohnSt. JohnSt. JohnSt. JohnSt. JohnAnd then it was time to get the party started back at the CLB Amoury! St. John
