  • Oh, Well Hello There!

You'll see photos of the beautiful couples I get to meet, the families and their kids that make me laugh and of course some of my own shenanigans and the odd random yummy recipe!

    So click around, get to know me and enjoy some fun photos. Then send me a message so I can meet you too!

Vanderwater Conservation Area, Belleville Ontario Photographer – Tarina & Justin

Don’t let these “green” engagement photos fool you.  I promise they were shot in December, just after Christmas actually, when it was approximately -10 degrees not including the wind chill.  Trust me, my trigger finger still remembers this day.  It may look warm, but it was pretty chilly for a hike through the Vanderwater Conservation Area just north of Belleville, Ontario.  Thankfully, both Tarina & Justin are real super troopers and went along with my ideas despite the cold.  They’re pretty easy going and fun to work with, plus they have great chemistry together which makes me even more excited for their summer wedding at Occasions by the Bay.

If you’ve stumbled across this blog post because you’re researching Occasions by the Bay, then check out my venue review HERE.

In the meantime, here’s some cute moments of Tarina & Justin hanging out at Vanderwater Conservation Area, looking all cozy and warm like the weather didn’t even matter.

Enjoy!

Cobble Beach Golf Resort, Georgian Bay Waterfront Wedding Photographer – Maria & Scott

It’s true, I’ve been hogging this wedding all to myself.  I’ve been waiting for the right moment to share it because a wedding a Cobble Beach Golf Resort is truly something special.

For Maria and Scott, location, location, location was always a important part of their wedding planning.  Even with their engagement photos they wanted something more rural and away from the Big City of Toronto, so it’s easy to see why they were drawn to Cobble Beach for their wedding.  Luckily, I was asked to capture their beautiful day on the shores of Georgian Bay and I couldn’t be more thankful.  Along with my trusted sidekick and talented second shooter for the day, Joel Mieske Photography, I think it’s fair to say we were totally inspired by the collaboration between Maria, Scott and the staff at Cobble Beach and we would love to shoot there again – like seriously, send me a message if you’re getting married there;)

Maria and Scott were married during a lovely ceremony at the St. Mary’s of the Assumption Church in Owen Sound, which was worth the short drive from Cobble Beach and then we headed back to the Resort for fun photos by the water, some very delicious food, traditional Polish wedding cake (bread) and an outdoor first dance at dusk, complete with sparklers to start the party.

I could on and on about this couple and the details they put into their day, but I’ll save that for the end of the post in case anyone is interested.  In the meantime, here’s their story in pictures:

Lockhaven, Pennsylvania Destination Country Wedding Photographer – Sandra & Gary

 

It’s freezing out there today… like literally our backyard is an ice rink and the dog can’t be out for more than 10 min before I worry about her little ears falling off from the -22 degree weather we’re getting today.

So in an attempt to get warm, I thought it was time (in fact, long overdue), that I share Sandra and Gary’s destination wedding from June 2014 in Lockhaven, Pennsylvania.  Yep, I am taking you back to the sunny days of June!  When the sun was hot, the burgers were topped with bacon and only the drinks were ice cold.

You’re welcome.

This wedding was set in one of the prettiest places I’ve ever seen.  Gary and Sandra personalized everything for their special day, from the ceremony with washing each other’s feet, to the homemade gourmet burgers topped with bacon flavoured ketchup (should you wish), to the centre pieces that included roses and real cotton.  We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day for this outdoor celebration.

Enjoy and stay warm out there!

Fields on West Lake, Prince Edward County Wedding Photographer – Leanna & Dan

This is a story of how I booked my first wedding in the beautiful Prince Edward County.

After moving to the Belleville area in February, I was nervous about starting from ground zero to build a client list.  I wasn’t sure I would book a wedding in Prince Edward County for at least a year or more or until people got to know me.  Luckily the stars aligned and I have connected with some really great local photographers who believe in community and trust me enough to share referrals when they are overbooked.

I’ll never forget the day I got Leanna’s email inquiry in my inbox!  It was April, it was raining and I was sitting in the Walmart parking lot when I opened my email and read “We really like your work and I think you would be a great fit for us.”  She even included a little winky-face.  I don’t know why I thought it was a good time to call her then and there, maybe it was the excitement in her words or maybe it was the fact that her venue was Fields on West Lake. (If you know me, then you know why I love this venue – hello barn wedding perfection!)

Anyway, I called Leanna at that moment, said I was available, we clicked and the rest is history!

Both Leanna and Dan have that small town warmth to them, so it doesn’t surprise me that their fall wedding was all about family and having a good time.  I could go on and on about these two, but really the photos do a better job at telling their story than my writing.

Enjoy!

Kingston Ontario Fall Cottage Country Wedding Photography – Kate & Brandon

What could be better than a fall wedding in the country just north of Kingston?  Better yet, what could be better than a fall wedding in the country with warm sunshine and just the right amount of colour on the trees?  I don’t know… maybe watching all this play out while eating lavender cookies.

Well, dreams can come true I suppose, because that is exactly what Kate & Brandon’s day was like this past September and it was perfect!

The boys got ready at a beautiful lake view cottage named “Randomwood” in Verona, while the girls got ready at Kate’s family cottage just up on the road.  As soon as I arrived at the boys’ cottage I could smell bacon, eggs and toast, just what a cottage on a Saturday morning should smell like and the day just got better from there on out.

Once Brandon and Kate had their first look at the family cottage, we headed to the Colden Family Farm in Glenburnie for the ceremony, outdoor sunset cocktail hour, tent reception and barn dance, complete with twinkle lights and tools hanging on the wall.

This wedding was simple, but absolutely memorable and beautiful at the same time.  I cannot thank Kate & Brandon enough for trusting me to capture their wedding day and every time I eat a lavender cookie, I still think of them and the warm fall day they got married.
