We spent a wonderful evening celebrating Alanna and Daniel’s engagement at the University of Guelph and Guelph Arboretum……and the night would just not be complete without the presence of a very special little one! Not shy at all (we met several years ago), she set the tone right away with dancing, twirls, squishes, smiles and […]

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 […]

I first met Lindsay and Oliver over zoom, as is the way in the times of covid. They got engaged in 2019 and decided to take some time before they started their wedding plans. They counted themselves lucky because they had decided early not to get married in 2020 but rather, in 2021. And then […]

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 […]

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 […]

I’ve known Caitlyn for a long time – I have always loved her personality – she is so bubbly, friendly, upbeat, and positive! She brings such a great energy and tonight was no different. It was a real pleasure to get to meet her fiancee Jake for the first time at their engagement session…….while at […]

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 […]

What better way to shake off the cold of winter than to stay inside in the cozy warmth of this beautiful and bright, white-walled barn at the newly constructed Barn Swallow Fields wedding venue! It was such a pleasure to photograph this dreamy winter wonderland styled shoot! From the dark evergreens to the rustic elements […]
