Newfoundland - Part 1 - Abandoned

Back in June I had the opportunity to travel to Newfoundland, Canada.  It's an amazing province full of the friendliest people you'll ever come across (more on that in another post).  But one thing that struck me (probably the deepest since it ended up being my first post in the series... well actually it's probably a tie between this and the littered coast line), were the abandoned homes throughout the entire province.  Newfoundland isn't a poor province, at least not anymore.  At one point it was one of the poorest, but since oil was discovered not far off shore, things have changed. 
So you see big developments and some massive homes (like ridiculously gorgeous homes for the area, that really stand out).  But dotted all throughout the province are these abandoned buildings, left standing and battered by the elements.

Lindsay & Adam - Wedding Photography - Stonebrooke

It's been a busy June, a lot of miles put on the car and a lot of crowded airplanes.  I finally have some time now to blog this gorgeous wedding, before putting some more miles on the car.
Lindsay and Adam were married on a lovely June weekend, the sky was amazing and luckily it only rained during the ceremony (which was inside).  They were a fabulous couple to work with, so much fun.  I wish them both all the best in their new lives together... in the same state!
Special thanks to Justina for helping out that day.
