Kettleby Wedding Photographer | The Manor


Amanda & Kenny

I honestly can’t say enough good things about Amanda and Kenny! Being their Kettleby wedding photographer was an absolute joy! Amanda and Kenny are such sweet, kind people – and they are totally adorable together!

How They Met

Amanda and Kenny met in 2007, at their work in Toronto. When they first met, Amanda thought Kenny was cute, but a bit of a know-it-all. Kenny thought Amanda was sweet and innocent (Amanda laughs at that, but I can totally see that! Amanda definitely gives off a sweet/innocent vibe!). They went on their first date to Jack Astors, in the Scarborough Town Centre, and 6 years later, Kenny proposed.

The Proposal

Kenny proposed (and I can only assume he did it in a most adorable manner) while he and Amanda were on a trip to Nigara-on-the-Lake. Amanda said yes at the Price of Wales hotel. They planned their wedding for a little over 18 months before tying the knot!

The Wedding

Amanda and Kenny had a beautiful sunny day for their wedding – which was perfect for their outdoor ceremony at The Manor, right in front of the gazebo, and overlooking the water.

I was especially excited for this wedding, not only because Amanda and Kenny are such a sweet couple, but also because they had my top 3 favourite wedding details! A poofy dress, a looonnngggg veil, and fog during their First Dance!

If I had to describe it, I would say that Amanda and Kenny had a very classic, traditional wedding.
Everything just seemed so perfect! I mean, look at Amanda’s bouquet – it’s perfect!

The bridal suite that the girls were in was great. It had a big window, and lots of light!

The photo below reminds me of that moment so vividly. Amanda was getting ready and then she turned, looked at herself in the mirror, took a deep breath and said “Okay…. I am ready to get married now.” And it was this big moment, like all of the planning that she had done for the past year-and-a-half had finally all come together, and she was ready to enjoy the day, and marry the love of her life.

Amanda’s mother passed away a few years ago, and they did a Rose Ceremony in memory of her mother, during the ceremony, but we also wanted to do a special photo as well. I love how it came out.

I just love these two photos below. Amanda with the adorable flower girl, Brooklyn – Brooklyn looking up at Amanda and Amanada smiling down at Brooklyn… it’s just perfect! Amanda’s grandmother putting on her bracelet was such a nice moment as well. It’s so rare for grandparents to be involved in the “getting ready” part of the day, I love it!

The awesome wedding party! (No, you aren’t seeing double, Kenny and his Best Man are identical twins! I found that out on the day of the wedding. That was a fun surprise. Ha. Actually I vaguely remember Kenny telling me at our initial consultation that he had a twin, but I didn’t think much of it.)

The gorgeous bridesmaids! Sarah (the blonde one), traveled all the way from Vancouver to be in Amanda’s bridal party!

We had almost an hour for bride & groom photos, so the videographers and I made the most of it!

As I said earlier, one of my top 3 favourite wedding details is a nice long veil! They make for such awesome and dramatic wedding photos! 😀

Fog during the First Dance – yep another one of my favourite wedding details! It somehow just makes it more magical – like dancing in the clouds.

The newlyweds at their beautiful sweetheart table! Sweetheart tables are getting more and more popular, I’ve noticed! (They are the “head table” at the reception, except only the bride and groom sit there.)

Amanda and her brother danced to “You Are Not Alone” by Michael Jackson, and the WHOLE room was in tears. It was beautiful.

And of course, Kenny danced with his mother. His mom (who is so kind and wonderful!) seemed a bit emotional – but I know that when my sons get married, and I dance with them at their weddings, I’m going to be a blubbering mess, so I totally get it.

Newmarket twins by www.jnphotography.ca @filemanager

The last time I saw this family was two years ago. The twins, Samuel and Grace were 2 years old, and their baby sister Leah was 6 months old and had just started (that very day!) sitting up on her own.

Fast forward to a couple weeks ago, when I got to see this awesome family again!

I could not believe how much the kids had grown – it really is incredible. Shy little Grace wasn’t shy anymore! She was talkative and friendly and full of photo ideas! Sam was pretty much the same, very quiet and just kind of going along with what we were doing. Tiny little Leah can do a lot more than just sit-up on her own now – and her gorgeous red hair matches her sister Grace! They all still have their amazing blue eyes though!

Here are a few of my favourites!

Leah, in the photo above, reminded me of when Grace did this same pose at our photo session 2 years ago!

The photo above was all Grace – no direction from me whatsoever! What a sweet sister she is!

Andrea and Mark got married this past Saturday at the very prestigious Magna Golf Club in Aurora. It was beautiful, and absolutely perfect! Everyone had a great time, and let me tell you, those adorable kids can DANCE!

After dark, there was a fireworks display that was absolutely fantastic – everyone loved it!

Before people ask, I will answer the a couple questions: Yes the two adorable ringbearers are identical twins… and yes, that is how Mark “smiles” 😉

Congrats Andrea and Mark!

I have been waiting for Helping Hearts to update their blog before I posted mine, but now the time has come! Hurray!

The chances of having spontaneous identical twins is about 1 in 250. The chances of a child being born with Angelman Syndrome is about 1 in 15,000.

But what are the odds of twins + Angelman Syndrome?

Enter Christina and Samantha.

Last week I had the pleasure of meeting these girls and their wonderful family, and I’m so happy I did! Their house is filled with so much love, warmth, laughter, and understanding for one another, it was such a joy to be able to capture some memories for them. We had so much fun, and they even let me drag them outside into pouring rain. (I had to! Their gardens are beautiful!)

Click here to visit the Helping Hearts blog, and see some of Christina and Samantha’s images.

I also wanted to mention, that the twins have a younger sister, Julia. The Helping Hearts blog focuses on her sisters, but Julia is not only gorgeous, she also has a natural talent in front of a camera.
