Wolf Island Shanti Retreat Centre Wedding | Lana & Narada


When Lana reached out to me and asked me to photograph her and Narada’s wedding, I could not be more excited. These two got married at the Shanti Retreat Centre on Wolf Island, just a short ferry ride from Kingston. They met there years ago, fell in love there and then decided there was no other place they’d rather celebrate their marriage.

Shanti is such a special place. Hammocks and swings hang from the trees all around the property. There’s a yurt for meditation and yoga practice as well as a sweet little cabana overlooking the lake, where Lana and Narada decided to see each other for the first time.

Their wedding was intimate and lovely and included the most beautiful personal vows that left everyone in happy tears (including myself). This was one of the last weddings I photographed before giving birth to my daughter, and it could not have been more perfect. I just made sure I knew exactly how to get to the Kingston hospital if my little one decided to come early, but thankfully, she waited a couple more weeks.

Lana and Narada, thank you for trusting me to photograph your day. You two are beautiful inside and out. xo
