Kayla & Steve - Cape Spear - Newfoundland Elopement Photographer

So pleased to finally have photos from a not-so-recent elopement session in Cape Spear, Newfoundland up on the blog!

I've finally caught up on sleep and now I'm basking in the glow of a weekend of love!
Big thanks to D.Lindenlaub Photography for shooting the ceremony solo, so I could stand up for Avery! You're photos are amazing
