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)
