PEI Wedding Photographer

Janelle & Kris {Married} by Danielle Gillan

I first met Janelle and Kris on a warm summer evening when we raced against time and beat heavy rainclouds to capture some sun-soaked engagement shots of them at the location of their upcoming ceremony (click here for a refresher) . It was a fabulous evening full of great conversation and I quickly realized how big of hearts these two have. From the way they talk about their family and friends to the love they have for their sweet Golden "Todd", Janelle and Kris are the real deal! Fast forward to their wedding day where their love for family and friends was front and centre, and you can bet that love came right back at them tenfold! Janelle and Kris, your wedding day was truly breathtaking and I was honoured to capture it for you.

Welcome to fall! by Danielle Gillan

Welcome to fall!! Did I ever mention how much I love fall? The temperature, the smell in the air, the apple picking and halloween costumes.. every bit of it! Also, the routines. I crave routine and structure and after a crazy hectic summer I think that is what I am looking forward to most, that and the occasional cozy home day! 

I realize that my blog has been pretty quiet this summer, but don't let that fool you! I have been a super busy beaver this summer with work, weddings, family time and oh... growing another tiny human being ;) 

I hope to get caught up on the blog in the coming months to show you all of the fun I had this summer, it was definitely one to remember! 

In response to the inquiries I have been receiving for family shoots this fall - for the time being I am completely booked up. If I happen to get all of my weddings finished up before all the leaves fall I might take on a few sessions.. I will be sure to post to my facebook page/blog if I decide to do so. Thank you SO much for understanding. As much as I wish I could say yes to each and every one of my inquiries, alas there are only so many hours in a day :(

Also, I have decided to take on a handful of weddings for 2017 although I will be on maternity leave. Be sure to send me a message if you would like to chat about your big day!

And because every post is better with a picture... here is our big girl as she set off on her first day at the 'big school' (which she is loving every moment of). Yay! (A special thank you to a fabulous friend for the sweet sign, thanks for thinking of us Sam!!)



Julie & Ryan {Married} by Danielle Gillan

I was so pleased to be asked to capture Julie and Ryan's fabulous July wedding. From the entourage of ADORABLE flower girls, to the breathtaking ceremony at Charlottetown's iconic Basilica and the homemade sweets bar at the reception, their day was one for the books! Julie and Ryan, I hope you have enjoyed your first month of wedded bliss and I wish you a lifetime of happiness as you embark upon your journey as husband and wife :)
