Collingwood beach front wedding by Candra Schank Photography

Set Scene: waiting in a lovely coffee shop with the smell of fresh baked goods and amazing coffee. Candra just arrived and started texting the people she is to meet

Candra text:   I’m Here. I’m wearing a fuchsia jacket with a teal scarf

Ana text:         Great, we are almost there. LOL, with my luck everyone will be wearing a fuchsia jacket and teal scarf J

Candra text:   Bahaha, well look for the girl with the beehive hairstyle.

Ana text:         Hahaha 😉 That’s’ the same hair style I have too. We are a lot alike

After those initial texts and a fabulous, I knew Ana and Dave were amazing people. And I was so excited to photograph their amazing wedding. Fast forward to their wedding day!

Oh my goodness, they were getting married in the beautiful city of Collingwood.  And even better, there were getting married on the beach of Georgian Bay at Ana’s moms condo.  It was simply beautiful.  Table settings fit for a King and Queen and all their closet friends and family.  A musician playing the guitar, start white chairs facing the water and Georgian bay as the backdrop.  Breathe-taking.

Both Ana and Dave have an amazing sense of humor and playful attitude.  When the groom drove up he shouted out the window at me “Whoop-whoop” with the biggest smile.

And when I saw Ana she was cracking jokes as she did some last minute decorating.

Before everyone knew it, Ana was walking down the aisle to the man of her dreams. Both of them had the biggest smile I have every saw.  They kept this smile throughout the whole wedding day.

It was a pleasure…and honour to have spent the afternoon getting to know Ana and Dave’s friends and family. Capturing amazing moments and memories for Ana and Dave.

Ana and Dave are not just a bride and groom I photographed. They are truly amazing people and I am happy to call them my friends.

Congratulations Ana and Dave.

I am a small time gal who loves to photograph pets and people. I love rolling around with dog, wading ankle deep in Georgian bay, photographing intimate weddings and the stories that are too, and just being me!
