CAMP WANNAKNOWMORE RECAP + VLOG! by Monique Pantel

PantelPhotoWorkshop

So I experimented with vloging for my very first time at Camp Wannaknowmore. What do you guys think? Should I create more vlogs from my travels and shoots? Let me know by commenting!

I love creating recaps and reliving the Camp Wannaknowmore's Wedding Photography Workshop is giving me goosebumps. I had such an amazing time with everyone. We photographed, we shared, we did amazing goal and intention setting exercises - and above all made some solid friendships. There were also campfires and s'mores gallore!

Riding Mountain was the perfect fall backdrop for a beautifully styled shoot created by Brit from Fache Florals. Man, she is so talented - I can't deal!

Thank you to Corey and Amanda (Cojo Photo) for asking me to come and co-host this workshop with Mike (Modern Pixel Photo). I had SUCH an amazing three days in my favourite place in Manitoba - Riding Mountain National Park!

WEDDING DAY TIMELINE PLANNING by Monique Pantel

Wedding Day Timeline Planning, Pantel Photo, Pantel Photography, Monique Pantel, Winnipeg Wedding, WEdding timeline, Photography timeline

"Monique, how should I structure my wedding day and plan our timeline?"

I get this question from every single once of my brides. It can be stressful to think about where to allot your hours of photography coverage, so I'm here to help! But first and foremost, you're the boss and you can create whatever kind of day your heart desires.

Here are some questions to ask yourself when creating your wedding day timeline based on how many hours of photography you have to work with:

1. Is our day traditional, an elopement or intimate with just a few friends and family?

You'll likely need more photography coverage for a traditional day and thus will require a strong, organized timeline plan. Consider events like your bridal/groom prep, wedding party portraits, first look, couple portraits, ceremony, formal family photos, reception, cake cutting and first dance.

However, if you're eloping the day becomes more of an extended portrait session, much more relaxed. Intimate ceremonies lie somewhere in the middle of traditional and elopement timeline planning.

2. What photos are most important to me (bridal/groom prep vs. party images)? 

Some couples care so much more about the special time spent preparing for their wedding day with their loved ones before the ceremony, and others want more photos of their friends and family knocking back shots of fireball whiskey and getting loose on the D-floor.

Here is a FREE PDF template of a wedding day timeline.

 I hope this helps you plan your day and please let me know if you have any questions or comments, I'd be happy to update this post with more information!

SUMMER SOLSTICE ELOPEMENT UNDER A FULL MOON by Monique Pantel

√

On Monday, seven of us gathered to unify two souls on the evening of the summer solstice and full moon. You guys, this is the kind of thing dreams are made of.

We stood where the land meets the vast blue waters on the east banks of Lake Manitoba. Marisa and Noah exchanged vows and eloped in the most intimate, beautiful ceremony I think I have ever seen. The waves crashed next to them. Sara, their friend (and officiant) lit ceremonial sage and performed a spiritual drumming song. It was all sorts of romance and magic.

This summer's solstice coincided with the Strawberry moon - a once in a lifetime occurrence! It is said to be a time of intensity, renewal and great potential. 

I am so beyond happy for Marisa and Noah and their three beautiful little girls. 

Elopements are a beautiful thing, people. Sweet, simple and intimate. The BEST.

I got to hang with these cuties at the beach last week. We rolled around in the sand, watched rainclouds tumble in over Lake Winnipeg as the sun set over the water. I have a lot of favourite things about my yoga girlfriends, but one of my top things I love about them is their appreciation for nature and willingness to not rush sweet simple moments - like sunsets and watching rain fall in the distance.

These two babes are hosting a yoga/essential oils workshop on the beach in a couple of weeks to celebrate the summer solstice. I'm sure you guys recognize Rachelle, who I co-founded Prairie Yogi Magazine and Prairie Love Festival with (she now operates both on her own!). And Demetra, owner of Sweet Spirit Apothecary (the most luxurious essential oil/aromatherapy products!)

First of all, I know what you're thinking. Matt looks like Noah. Like Notebook Noah. Like "If you're a bird, I'm a bird" Noah.

Shayna and I giggled so hard when I brought up the Ryan Gosling similarities. She agreed and told me "I love when people tell me that." Hahaha!

We spent a little evening at Bird's Hill Provincial Park, a beautifully scenic, totally diverse sanctuary that offers so many options for photoshoots. Pastel beaches, lush forests, open fields. This place has it all and is one of my favourite locations to shoot engagement sessions near Winnipeg.

Oh, and if you want to get all teary-eyed and watch the "If you're a bird, I'm a bird" scene, I've included it below. Because... The Notebook 4 ever!

LAUREN + JORDAN by Monique Pantel

Jordan Prairie Film Co. (formerly Jordan Michalski Cinematography) is a creative collaboration between us, Lauren and Jordan. We met over 11 years ago, as kids hanging out in the basement of a mutual friends home. We grew up together, attending the same youth group events, but never really got along. However, as the years passed, and as we got to know each other, we realized we had a lot more in common than first thought. We started hanging out, fell in love, and are getting married in 2016, Pantel Photo, Pantel Photography, Prairie Film Co, Monique Pantel, Lauren Ritchie, Best Winnipeg Wedding Photographer, Best Canada Wedding Photographer,

Lately I've been listening to a whole lot of Bon Iver - which is sooo 2011.. but hey, when something reaches deep into your soul, replay never gets old. I think it's the long drives to the lake, the lazy sunsets and the slow, easy conversations I've been having with my couples lately. Like last week with these two.

I met Lauren and Jordan last year while shooting this super bananas beautiful wedding at Lake of the Woods. Jordan and Lauren are the creative souls behind Prairie Film Co. - a talented duo who make really special wedding films. We clicked, and before we knew it, I was blessed/asked to be their wedding photographer. Dream couple! They are so chill and so sweet. I just feel so damn lucky.

So last week, I hopped into Jordan's fire red, two door sports car, Starbucks in hand and were off to Brereton Lake. Lauren's family cabin overlooks the lake and the've spent their summers together growing up and growing their love here. This stuff melts my freaking heart. I'm so, SO excited for their wedding at Cielo's Garden this summer!

That's all for now, until next time: Holocene (oh, and some Drake for a road trip like these cool kids)
