    What does BEAUTI mean to you?

    beau-ty (n.pl.) Any of those attributes of form, sound, color, character, behavior, achievement, etc., which give pleasure and gratification to the senses or to the mind. Something excellent of its kind.

    BEAUTI is more than physical attractiveness. BEAUTI surrounds us in many forms.

    BEAUTI portrayed inside and out. BEAUTI at every age, in every stage of life. BEAUTI of this incredible world we live in. BEAUTI of emotions and feelings of the moment. BEAUTI that cannot be put into words.

    Discovering. Cherishing. Capturing.

    Thank you for checking out my blog, feel free to look around and add a comment or send me a note. Sharing life’s BEAUTIs from my perspective…enjoy! Jenelle

Rainy Wedding Day | Estevan, Sk

I have another person to thank for working very hard and making me proud on Mathew and Maria’s rainy wedding day.  My incredible husband.  He was on the ball and I appreciate all that he did to make the day run as smoothly as possible!  The rain did not let up the entire day which presents its challenges.  Locations that were okay in the morning were far too soggy later on.  It takes extra time getting in and out of vehicles and putting umbrellas up and down.  Someone kindly held an umbrella over my head most of the time we were shooting too.  Mathew + Maria and their wedding party got out in the rain, made it fun and allowed me to capture how their day really was.  Full of love, happiness and laughter!  I was grateful they embraced the weather and did not let continuous raindrops falling dampen their spirits.  It was an infectious enthusiasm!  We left with a huge smile and I’m so glad I have this great guy by my side!!

Shauna | Nursing Convocation

The main reason I headed up to Edmonton in June was for my younger sister’s nursing convocation.  We are so proud and she worked hard to get her nursing degree.  We weren’t sure how long (and boring!) the ceremony might be but the speeches were all great and sitting by a shoe-loving sister as well there were lots to check out as the graduates walked across the stage to collect their degrees!  It was fun to share in the excitement, relief, happiness and be reminded that dedication pays off!!  This is a monumental milestone and it was exciting to see her walk across the stage to get her degree after cheering her along the past 4 years!  She will be a very caring, compassionate, gentle and understanding nurse.  Way to go, you’ve made us all real proud!!

Mathew + Maria | Estevan, Sk Wedding

Where do I begin to describe these two and their beautiful wedding day?  There are not enough synonyms for wonderful!  Their willingness to shoot in the rain and not just taking photos but having fun and soaking in all the excitement proved this ever so much!!  When we say embrace the day this wedding party is the perfect model.  They were loving, happy, laughing, acting goofy, dressed up and looking great, playing in the rain.  When you can’t change the weather there was nothing more I could have asked for and I am very grateful to this lovely and sweet couple, their lively and fun wedding party and their kind, helpful families.  A great combination for a memorable, happy wedding day!!  You were all great and really enjoyable to work with.

We started off in Maria’s bridal suite at the Days Inn. I loved her dress with the layers of lace, she looked stunning!
