Vignoble Saint-Thomas Wedding

Vanessa + Filipe

This wedding at Vignoble Le Mernois in Saint-Thomas, Quebec was full of amazing moments and that’s something we wedding photographers can only hope for. And when they do arrive, the real skill of a wedding photographer can showcase itself. Maybe you’re just lucky to get the shot. You just happened to be in the right place at the right time and had your camera settings dialled in and the light was right and you pressed the shutter at the right time. Maybe. Sometimes that’s true. Sometimes, reacting to a fleeting moment and making an image that captures an important part of the story, with good composition, well exposed and in focus… that can set the good photographers apart from the rest. Don’t get me wrong, even the best wedding photographers will miss those moments occasionally. There is certainly an element of luck involved. But, in my workshops, I say that one skill a wedding photographer needs to build is being ready for when luck is our side.

Vanessa & Filipe’s wedding makes for a great story. From the anticipation as the girls and the guys got ready, surrounded by their closest friends and family to the moment Filipe sees Vanessa walking towards him down the aisle. From the emotional dance with their moms to the reaction of the kids when things on the dancefloor began to get a little heated!

We took a few couple portraits around the vineyard but most of my favourite photos from this wedding are the moments that happen between the big moments. Does that make sense? Hopefully, you’ll see what I mean from the pictures below!

This was a fantastic wedding to photograph and I’m so grateful to Vanessa & Filipe for trusting me to document their story. And also to their guests who made me feel really welcome.

If you’re having a wedding at Vignoble Le Mernois I’d love to hear from you so please do drop me an email.

Below is a short slideshow of some of my favourite recent wedding photos… Take a look. And turn the sound up!

I’m a Brit living in Montreal with my wife, Evelyne and our three boys! Evelyne and I met in the Alps in 2003 when Evelyne thought she was a cool snowboarder and I thought I was a superstar DJ. We got married in 2007 in Cornwall, England and moved to Canada in 2014.

I photographed my first wedding in 2006 and have now shot almost 500 weddings, mostly in Canada & the UK, but I absolutely love travelling anywhere in the world. I enjoyed it when I started but love my job now more than ever.
