Instantly, as soon I met Menna Riley it was like a scene out of a movie. The room was dimly lit at Lot 6, she was mid conversation and flipped her hair ... which totally happened in slow mo (as I recall) and the camera zoomed in. She was totally the epitome of a girl boss. This all happened at her successful Leading Ladies Event (which you should all check out). Later that night we chatted and I couldn't get over how genuine, kind, funny and wicked smart she was. Let's be honest she was totally girl crush material.
I met Menna's equally talented and girl crush worthy sister Brigit before. It must have been fate because the next month all brought us all together. Brigid was so amazing and let us use some of her awesome inventory from What? These old things for our shipwreck shoot. Ironically, Menna was in sudden need of a photographer for Leading Ladies.
After I captured the first Leading Ladies event it wasn't long before Menna asked me to capture her wedding at Atlantica Oak Island. Meeting Greg was totally a treat. I can tell these two firecrackers were so meant to be together. They were on the same wavelength about everything. and finished each others jokes. During the engagement session we laughed our butts off.
Capturing a dear friend's wedding is an absolute treat. knowing her friends and family?! Even better. To top off this all star day I had my best photo bud Scott Blackburn of Gingersnap Photography by my side taking amazing snaps too.
Menna and Greg, you both lived in the moment, always remembered what was important and delegated all the non essentials perfectly. Your day was filled with all the best moments and even time for you both to recharge.
You see and asks for the best in people. They inspire to be better around you. You didn't have "guests" are your wedding. You had a community of awesome folk who wanted celebrate all that you are. I can't think of day with better vibes and fun. Though you had lots of vendors involved I gotta give shoutout to True North DJs for keeping that dance floor bumping the whole night. I've never seen a crew hit up the dance floor like this.
I cant thank you enough for trusting and allowing us to capture your day. Whenever I think of you both I smile. I hope these pictures, memories and dun adventures you cherish for years to come!
