  • Oh, Well Hello There!

    Welcome to my little corner of the internet! It's not much, but it's home sweet home to all my stories and the images that tell them. 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!

I loved Heather & Matt’s Royal Military College fall wedding!  It was my first time being able to use the City of Kingston as my backdrop and we could pretty much go anywhere because the light was that perfect cloudy filtered light that makes the colours pop and eyes less squinty – my favourite kind of day to work with (next to the golden hour of course).  Some photographers will disagree, but I really dig it.

While the girls got ready in the country (be sure to check out the back of Heather’s dress – one of my favourite details of the day), the boys had a cozy room at The Hochelaga Inn just down the street from Chalmers United Church, where they would walk to for the ceremony.

After the ceremony, we walked down the street for some… ok LOTS of photos on the steps of the Kingston Court House, then we decided to warm up with a quick pint (or two) at The Merchant Tap House.

Something you should know about me and how I work:  I’m a big fan of couples taking a “time out” on their wedding day to enjoy a moment of unscripted fun.  Sure there is a schedule in place, but during that hour or so that we’re together for photos, I’ll encourage you to take a walk, breathe, talk, grab a snack, or even a pint.  It’s supposed to be a fun day and not everything has to be scheduled to the minute – besides, it makes for some great memories of the day and eases the stress of having people grabbing at you all day.

I’m so glad Heather & Matt asked me to capture their day and I hope your inspired by their photos to plan a day as fun as theirs was.

Enjoy!

Collaborating with Riverstone Golf and Country Club in Brampton, Ontario has always given me the opportunity to work with some really great couples.

When I first met Courtney & Gary, I didn’t realize it but we had actually worked together before at Courtney’s cousin’s wedding only a year before.  It took a while for the memory to click, but once it did we knew we had to collaborate for her own wedding day at Riverstone, but not before we had an amazingly timed cherry blossom engagement session in Mississauga.

I had so much fun working with these two and the staff at Riverstone – plus any wedding that serves crème brûlée has to be a good time! (best. dessert. ever!)

Last summer I had the pleasure of second shooting for an intimate wedding at Angeline’s Inn and The Hubb Restaurant in Bloomfield.  With summer around the corner, I thought it might be nice to share all the pretty summery details this wedding had.

One of the reasons I love Prince Edward County as a destination wedding location in Ontario is the variety of intimate venues for couples looking to celebrate with good food in a fun and original setting, I feel like this patio wedding at Angeline’s Inn is the perfect example of that and I would love to shoot here again….. and again….

In the meantime, enjoy this fresh summer wedding inspiration found below:

It’s baaaaaack!  My discounted family portrait weekend just in time for Mother’s Day for my dear friends in the Kitchener-Waterloo-Cambridge area (and those of you who travel there just for this event – thank you ever so much by the way!)

Every year I make a special trip to the KW area to celebrate the mom’s I know there, including my own (hey mom!)  Instead of booking one session at a time and charging you guys some overpriced travel, why not make a weekend of back to back sessions, saving me the time and you the money.

As with every year, I try to bring a bench, blanket and a few tricks up my sleeve to make people smile.  This year will be no different… in fact, I have a pretty big prop to complete before the big weekend arrives and I’m excited to unveil it (and now that it’s on the internet, I guess I better come through…..oh man….)

So yes!  Here it is!

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

I don’t know about you, but the with the sun rising a little earlier each day I’m getting excited for wedding season to start (aka beach season for everyone else) and it got me thinking about the 10 year anniversary session I did last summer at the Sandbanks in Prince Edward County.

A lot of couples and families have / rent cottages in the County or even just come to celebrate a special milestone here.  There’s tons of fresh food, wineries, beaches, and things to do, so if you and your spouse / family are visiting during the summer and you’d like to capture some memories while you’re here, just let me know and I’d be happy to follow you around with my camera, while giving you a few tips on the best places to eat.

In the meantime, here’s some inspiration!

Enjoy!
