Wedding: Terrilyn & David – June 29 2012 (Newfoundland Wedding Photographer)

Saturday, June 30th, 2012

You know you are going to have a good day when the forecast the day before is saying thunder showers…but when you emerge from the church the sun is shining!  I have to admit however, not only do I consider myself to have skills in photography…I think I also have skills in weather altering.

Let me explain…  Back in the spring of 2010 I had two weddings where the forecast called for rain, a lot of rain if I remember correctly.  Well, both of these days turned out to be rain free!  Since I am slightly superstitious, I decided that I would wear the same shirt to the next wedding, and then the one after that…. and so on…  Basically, I have been alternating the same two shirts for my weddings since that time, and I have not had to set up a backdrop to do photos since January 2010!  A small (very small) part of me would kind of like for it to rain heavy enough on some wedding to warrant the studio lights….maybe then I can break the superstition and actually look like I own more than 2 shirts to the wedding venues that see me so often :)

So back to the point..the weather was awesome, the people were awesome, and I feel the sample photos are awesome!  Check them out below :) \

























Portrait: Elliott Kids (Newfoundland Portrait Photographer)

Newborn pictures you say? Outside? In a beautiful natural environment? Where do I sign up??? :)

We had a great time shooting photos of these two little girls!  The fact that they are great kids with great parents was only amplified by our great forest backdrop!  Anyone who knows and loves Vinland Photography knows we are all about being easy on the props, and high on location/lighting etc…  and well… I couldn’t be happier with how things went!  Can’t wait to do some more sessions with this sort of vibe.
