Michelle & Scott's Wedding

Stratford Wedding Photography

< Back to Weddings

When I first met Michelle and Scott, I knew we would get along.  Not only were they absolutely hilarious, but Michelle was wearing a sweater with a cat on it…be still my beating cat-lady heart!

Michelle and Scott’s November wedding took place in picturesque Stratford.  We started the day at the lovely Bruce Hotel which was a perfect backdrop for their preparation and first look photos.  Michelle is a deeply creative person – her classic Hollywood glam wedding look featured a soft pink dress with a gold overlay that she had embroidered herself!  It was stunning!  To contrast this, all of Michelle’s bridesmaids were in white dresses – I love how they turned the tables on the ‘traditional’ wedding look.

During the preparation, Scott and his groomsmen practiced their flash mob dance for the reception, got ready, and took a few swigs from the “Shotski”!

Once everyone was ready to go, Michelle met Scott during their first look in one of the Bruce’s window lined hallways.  So cute!  We then proceeded to the quite chilly though beautiful Shakespearean Gardens for their bridal party photoshoot!  I loveeee this couples’ sense of humour! I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so much at a wedding as I did photographing this wedding party!

After the photoshoot, we headed to the gorgeous Revival House for their heartwarming ceremony and phenomenal reception.  The reception decor also featured beautiful antique plates and teacups that were collected by Michelle in the year prior to their wedding day!  I also loved that Michelle and Scott MC’d their own wedding – they were truly an amazing couple to work with and I absolutely love how they created a beautiful unique wedding that was perfect in every way.

I had a big laugh going through these images again, and I’m sure you will too!

 


"We hired Ema to photograph our wedding. We were drawn to Ema because of her experience in editorial work and weddings. We requested to meet with her in person and make sure our personalities meshed well. Ema was charming, creative, down to earth, and extremely affable. We were happy to hire her. She was very communicative and always available for quick (and what we worried were maybe silly) questions. Scheduling our engagement shoot was an easy process. We had a very clear idea of what we wanted to achieve and Ema helped us expand on it, and captured our truest personalities. We had a shoot in the river, and to get the best shots Ema got into the river up to her knees! We were so impressed. In preparation and on the day of our wedding, Ema was not one of the stressors. She was steady, easily available, positive, happy, and extremely professional. Ema was exactly what we wanted in a photographer: present, but not in the way. Neither added nor detracted from the day, just captured it. When it came to editing and getting our files, Ema communicated timelines accurately and delivered our files promptly. When we received them we were beyond thrilled. Not only were the photos beautiful, we felt as though Ema saw and captured our true and candid moments. We wish we could get married all over again if only to have more beautiful Ema photos!" - Michelle
