On a cold day in February, nothing could have made you warmer than being part of the intimate wedding and reception that saw Jack and Katie get married here in Winnipeg.

We were honoured to be there to capture the moments and hear the stories. It is crystal clear that both friends and family of the couple alike have fallen madly in love with these two and the stories of their romance were heartwarming and inspiring.

We often find ourselves at the edges of the party (getting the right angle for the photos of course) which is a good thing because most of the time we end up blinking back tears, happy tears, too! We certainly don’t have a long history with the majority of our clients, but the time we spend with you always makes you feel like friends!

Jack and Katie, we wish you all the love!

And just like that it’s February 2015, and Red Photo Co. is back in wedding action for another year!

What’s not to love about a wedding that takes playing games and hula hooping into consideration?! We spent an hour or so at Across The Board a games cafe here in Winnipeg. The wedding party could relax and had a lot of laughs over a game, and we got to photograph all the smiles and silliness!

After apologetically getting the couple to go outside in frigid temperatures earlier in the day, Connie piped up that they’d really like to do a few more snowy pictures before the reception! Of course we said absolutely! This time we took the entire wedding party out onto what constitutes a small hill, at least when you’re in the prairies. It was the highest spot around, and the wind certainly wasn’t kind, but getting a group of friends to huddle up together with a brilliant blue sky and fresh white snow all around does make for a stunning backdrop, photographically speaking!

We’ve had so many laughs with Connie and Trevor while talking with them in the planning stages for their wedding, and I’m sure that Connie is happy to be able to just go home and watch TV after work, now that the wedding has happened!

Thank you for all the laughs, and trusting our ability to capture your wedding day the way you envisioned it!
All the best, and we hope to see you and Dobby again soon!

Back in January we were invited to join the Winnipeg Supper Club at an intimate dinner event at Maws which featured cheese by much loved producer Bothwell Cheese and wine all the way from Emiliana Organic Vineyards in Chile.

Good music, intimate crowd, delicious food and excellent wine all made for one great evening!

Thanks again to Leane for having Red Photo Co. there to capture another successful event!

Our last wedding of 2014 was a beautiful way to cap off the year!

The day was cool, but the sky was blue and the sun was out. We may have nearly turned the bride and groom into popsicles during our brief foray outdoors, but it was worth it!

Fort Gibraltar always provides excellent atmosphere, food and service, and as usual was a fantastic venue for this wedding that centred on family and friends.

We are so happy for you Leanne & Dave, thanks for trusting us to capture your memories!

The bride wore navy. Private vows were said between the couple after the official ceremony was complete. The photo session was just the bride and groom and they changed out of their fancy duds… this was all about the sharing of vows, and it was absolutely lovely!

Heather wanted a canopy of golden leaves to encompass herself and Karl during their incredibly intimate ceremony, and she certainly got her wish!

To say that these two were blessed with an amazing day is an understatement! The fall was long, and the day was relatively warm, considering it was the end of October in Winnipeg. The leaves were golden, the sky was blue, and the sweet ceremony was held with their closest family present in the park down the street from their home.

After a little trip down to The Forks, it was back to their own home, where friends and family were waiting to celebrate into the night!

Hopefully this reminds all you hardy Winnipegers that all seasons are not winter, and there will be warmth again soon!

This session was shot inside a snow globe! Ok, not really, but it sure looks like it was!

Jack and Katie met down south, and even though they have both lived in northern climates, it was a lot to ask of these two to go on a little icy adventure! They were very good sports as we traipsed around The Forks and the River Trail to get what you can only term quintessential Winterpeg photos.

It was snowy and warm-ish, and we were able to spend a considerable amount of time out on the frozen river, and we’re glad we did because now, just two weeks later, we Winnipeggers have been suffering through another bout of winter weather that has seen our temps plummet to depths again as cold as the dark side of Mars!

We are excited for you two, happy to see the warmth and love you have for each other, and so glad to be photographing your wedding this weekend!

This is one heck of a great family. If I needed to pick one word to encapsulate the Falks it would be PERSONALITY! Every single time they get in front of the camera, it’s magic! The smiles, the energy, the gusto with which they all take on life… it’s absolutely infectious!

Charlie the service dog is the sweetest, most attentive, well behaved dog we’ve met. I think he was the least phased by having his photo taken, he was certainly the least camera aware!

It is certain, when you are in a room with this family you are in the presence of a bunch of people who love each other and also really like each other!

We had the best time, and we’ll gladly photograph you all again anytime you’d like!
