It seems that the bigger picture of 2016 has been wild all over the world - but we've gotta say it's been pretty sweet from where we're sitting.

2015 will always hold a dear place in our hearts, between our wedding and taking the business full time (limited liability incorporation had us adulting HARD) - it was an awesome 365 days. But 2016 hasn't come and gone without it's fair share of amazingness - and we're super excited to reflect on the highlights!

Bermuda Wedding Photographers: Erica & Steve, Cambridge Beaches Resort & Spa

As wedding photographers, sometimes we really do have to pinch ourselves to make sure this life is for real! As if living and working in Bermuda doesn't make us fortunate enough, we get to capture the most precious moments of some truly wonderful people daily. How amazing is that? Erica and Steve were definitely one of those couples who make you thank your lucky stars - these two are just plain lovely (though there is certainly nothing plain about them!). On a warm May evening at one of our favourite locations, these two made a promise to one another overlooking the clear Atlantic Ocean. On that day, their adventure together began - and we were SO thrilled to be there capturing it. Erica & Steve, it was a pleasure meeting you both - you're truly beautiful inside and out! x

Tatem Travels: Whistler, BC

We're saving the best for last with our travel photos - stay tuned for Japan next week. In the past we've taken tons of shots while at Whistler, but this first part of our honeymoon we played it pretty lazy...hitting the slopes mid-morning and only bringing the camera up a few times. It was the perfect was to get into a vacation groove, even if we don't have too much imagery to show for it. Nonetheless, we absolutely love British Columbia. It's such a gorgeous part of Canada and we were lucky to have an awesome driver on the way up the mountain who stopped off at some 'off the track' spots for us to shoot. 

Until Thursday!
