Our photography approach is simple.

We want to get to know you, so that we can bring your heart, beliefs, and aspirations into each photo that we take.

We don't just want to take great photos, we want to tell a story. Your story!

CJ & Natalie | Fogolar Furlan | Windsor, Ontario Wedding Photographers

Do these gorgeous people look familiar to you? If you’ve followed our work for some time, you might recognize CJ & Natalie from their Joshua Tree National Park engagement session. What an awesome adventure it was for us to travel together and get to know each other more! The things we’ve learned about Natalie & CJ are these, they work hard, know how to have fun, have an impressive attention to detail, and are crazy about each other. Their families mean the world to them, and their connection and bond is a solid one.

Photographing their wedding day allowed us to watch so many meaningful moments unfold. After the first look between the soon-to-be husband and wife, CJ surprise his Bride with a handmade bench. The meaning of this bench is deep and if you read through their engagement story on their engagement blog post, you’ll understand why it was so special.  We watched Natalie’s little sister look up to her in awe and admiration the entire day. We watched them greet their closest friends and family at the door with great joy and deep love. We watched their first dance and felt the love between them knowing their love story that hides behind every glance, smile, and kiss. We watched CJ comfort his mom during their first dance with the sweetest kiss a son could give right on her forehead. These are moments we don’t take for granted.These are moments that increase in value as the years progress. These are moments that humble us greatly to be trusted with capturing.

Before I become a blubbering mess (again), let’s get to the wedding details! CJ & Natalie started off their time together with a ‘first look’ and their wedding party portraits at the Iron Kettle Bed & Breakfast and then headed to St. Mary’s Church for the ceremony. The reception took place at Fogolar Furlan. The band Ciao rocked the house all night and got everyone dancing. What a spectacular day!

CJ and Natalie, we are so lucky to have you as clients and friends. We hope that you will always be able to look back on your wedding photos and remember exactly how you felt that day! We wish you all the best and hope to see you real soon.
