Katrina + Brett — With you is exactly where I’m supposed to be.

From very ear­ly on, Kat­ri­na and Brett told us that wed­ding videog­ra­phy was one of the most impor­tant ele­ments of their day and the keep­sake they were look­ing for­ward to the most. That didn’t nec­es­sar­i­ly change our approach, but it did spark much excite­ment going into their cel­e­bra­tion at the scenic Kurtz Orchards in Nia­gara on the Lake. They were excit­ed for us to lend our style and approach to their wed­ding day and we were excit­ed to tell their sto­ry and wan­der through the vine­yards at sun­set with them.

As is the case with all our NHL cou­ples, the hard­est part was get­ting to a meet­ing where we can hash out all our ideas. Because Kat­ri­na and Brett live in Wash­ing­ton dur­ing the hock­ey sea­son, we weren’t able to sit down with them until a cou­ple of weeks before the wed­ding day, but once we did, we were com­plete­ly cap­ti­vat­ed by the warm and inti­mate cel­e­bra­tion they were plan­ning. con­tin­ue read­ing »

Allie + Cody — 10+ years in the making.

As Allie men­tions in this film, in the NHL, the off-season is the only time you can real­ly count on for non-hockey-related endeav­ours. She was refer­ring to the one time of year that Cody could real­is­ti­cal­ly pro­pose, but it’s some­thing we’ve learned from NHL wed­dings: you meet the cou­ple in the off-season and you don’t see them again until the fol­low­ing off-season just a cou­ple of weeks before the wed­ding and amidst the player’s strict train­ing sched­ule.

Allie and Cody first met at their sum­mer camp, Musko­ka Woods, when they were just kids. The camp itself is just a short boat ride away from their cot­tage, so from our first meet­ing, we always talked about revis­it­ing it with them and doing some of their favourite activ­i­ties on the water. As amaz­ing as this all sound­ed, find­ing a time to head up to Musko­ka proved almost impos­si­ble between Cody’s train­ing and the crazy weath­er lead­ing up to each shoot. After a cou­ple of can­cel­la­tions, we nailed a date just a week and a half before the wed­ding day and decid­ed we’d make it work regard­less. con­tin­ue read­ing »

Blakeny + Corey — We are all a little weird.

Blakeny & Corey Perry Cottage

If you fol­low hock­ey at all, you’ll prob­a­bly rec­og­nize the groom in this video as Corey Per­ry from the Ana­heim Ducks. You’d also prob­a­bly know about the incred­i­ble sea­son they just wrapped up and why we then only had a cou­ple of weeks between the time he and Blak­e­ny got back up to Cana­da and their wed­ding day to get to know them and put togeth­er this beau­ti­ful lit­tle same-day edit for them.

Over the past year, we e-mailed back and forth with Blak­e­ny to get a sense of who the real Blake and Corey are; how they met, how the pro­pos­al came about, what they like to do togeth­er, etc. They final­ly found them­selves in Toron­to in Decem­ber when the Ducks were facing-off against the Leafs. We took the chance to meet Blak­e­ny over cof­fee and real­ly hit it off. She told us that Corey trav­els so much dur­ing the sea­son that when he’s final­ly off, they escape their Cal­i­for­nia home and make for their cot­tage in Peter­bor­ough, Ontario to wind down for a few weeks.

We com­plete­ly loved this idea and pro­posed that we tag along on one of their lazy cot­tage days and cap­ture them get­ting a lit­tle R&R. Now the tim­ing would be the hard­est part of it all — the wed­ding sea­son being such a crazy busy time of year for us and the Ducks com­ing clos­er and clos­er to the Stan­ley cup as the sum­mer pro­gressed. Luck­i­ly, we were able to final­ly nail down a date the week before their wed­ding and we all met at their cot­tage. con­tin­ue read­ing »
