I love Newfoundland- despite the weather- there’s just something so special about our beautiful province. So when I got this idea in my head to plan a styled editorial, I knew immediately I wanted it to be an elopement showcasing the natural beauty of Newfoundland. And what better place to do that than on the East Coast Trail, a sprawling 300km of paths across the island. I chose Cobbler Path, which is one of my favourites close to town. Prior to the shoot, I had envisioned the setting taking place out on Torbay Point- a beautiful backdrop of cliff and ocean views. But, true to Newfoundland form, on the day of the scheduled shoot the fog was rolling in so thick you could hardly see a thing out on the point. At the last minute, the wonderful ladies of By Sharpe Design who were handling the decor (including lugging a giant door and pallet into the woods) found a beautiful little clearing on the path. So as luck would have it, not only did the setting turn out better than I had imagined, but I also managed to drag our amazing models ten minutes down the trail to the point to grab a few shots in the fog.

 

A HUGE thank you is in order to all of these vendors who brought my crazy vision to life, as well as to our models who just straight up made us all look good. Thank you, a million times over- you’re all deadly. Credits are as follows:
