These two certainly made the most of their frosty, bitterly cold winter engagement session! Three times was definitely the charm as we had to cancel Caroline and Andrew’s session two times due to well below sub-zero temperatures (-23 degrees with the wind chill at least!)!! While it was still unbelievably cold, you would never know […]

It was such a treat to get to know Kelly and Dave and to get outside on this late fall night to make sure we captured some photos for them before the snow started to fly! It was awesome to capture photos in and around Paris, Ontario (yes, that Paris, not the other Paris but […]

Looking back over the year that was, I can’t think of a better way to cap off the 2021 wedding season than with this newly married Mr. and Mrs.! Set at Kristy and Colby’s beautiful large country property, a place they dubbed ‘Sunset Ranch’ for its beautiful sunset panoramas, their wedding was completely, 100% them, […]

I think it would be very safe to say that Michelle and Chris are a joyful couple. They just exude happiness and radiate positivity! In fact, it is really really hard for them to stop smiling or laughing! And this comes across in ALL of their photos! Whether they were learning to dip, strolling down the […]

I met Vanessa and Tyler through a virtual bridal show – a first for me! In fact they were one of the first couples I ever met virtually, bridal show or otherwise. From the comfort of my studio, we chatted all things bridal and got to know one another better. At the time I wondered […]

Sonia and Bobby are a lovely, quiet couple. We met them on a beautiful summer night at the Guelph Arboretum for their engagement session. They quickly became naturals in front of the camera and the night flew by as we soaked up the golden late summer light before it disappeared completely. Sonia has a dance […]

To say that these little ones kept us on our toes would be like saying we’ve had a mildly hot summer in 2021……..what fun we had chasing these two around the farm at sunset! There were visits to the chicken coop and bounces on the trampoline and swinging on the swing and running free with […]

Yin & Yang. That’s what first comes to my mind when I think of these two amazing people and their interaction together. The perfect combination of spontaneous and structured, with a whole lot of passion and excitement mixed in! And did I mention a whole lot of laughter too? This night was fun from the […]

I first met Sylvia and Fernando through friends of theirs (Shannon and Matt) that I photographed at a recent styled shoot. I had great fun photographing Shannon and Matt, when they were the models at an impromptu garden-styled wedding shoot (in a lovely little greenhouse way up high on a hill!) To read about what […]

We had to reschedule Sylvia and Fernando’s engagement multiple times due to covid, but it was well worth the wait! Sylvia and Fernando had originally planned on eloping on April 23rd so we had a March engagement session scheduled (not always an ideal time of year for photos, with it being right between winter and […]

Every now and again a night comes along and the light is just perfect, in every way. That was the night of Lindsay and Oliver’s engagement shoot. Along with your clients, you plan for it, you hope for it, you cross your fingers and toes for it, but sometimes it feels like that light can […]

Amanda and Gavin’s story has truly inspired me and really made me reflect on what it means to be flexible and adapt…….everything has so fundamentally changed this year for so many engaged couples like Amanda and Gavin when planning their weddings and they have each had to make often difficult choices. And this made me […]

I met Deanna in the early summer of last year when she was the maid of honour at her close friend’s wedding in Niagara on the Lake, Ontario.   So it was a wonderful surprise this summer when she and I re-connected on the occasion of her recent engagement and upcoming wedding! I was so […]

In the midst of record-breaking summer heat (seems we’ve been having a lot of that lately), it was such a privilege for me to ‘mask up’ COVID-19-style and meet this wonderful little family of 4 as they introduced their newest bundle of joy to the world. It is always amazing to me to see how […]

On one of the hottest and most humid evenings at the end of June, Nicole and Andrew were unbelievable sports, coming out to Huron Natural Area in Kitchener for their engagement photos.
