Becca & Mike's Wedding

Elora Mill Autumn Wedding Photography | Becca + Mike

< Back to Weddings

Becca and I go way back to 2008 or so, shortly after I picked up my first digital camera and began experimenting with studio lighting and portraiture. I had just discovered how fun it was to collaborate with models and our paths crossed when I had photographed one of her friends.  Lo and behold, the photos Becca and I created ended up in the hands of Gemini Models when she approached them about modelling.  They were so impressed with my work (aww!), that they began to hire me for various photoshoots and recommended me to other local businesses. It was truly serendipity, and my business was born!

Way back then, Becca had said that one day, when she gets married, I would be her photographer. In the meantime, we have worked together on countless photoshoots, runway shows, and of course her family/lifestyle sessions and headshots.

When she and Mike became engaged, I was excited to finally photograph her wedding – 12 years in the making!  They even based their date selection on my availability, which is truly humbling.

It was a chilly but beautiful and lush October day.  I met up with Becca at Elora Mill for her getting ready photos, while my secondary proceeded to photograph Mike at their home.  We then had a beautiful ceremony at the Foundry building, followed by family photography, and bridal party photography at the nearby Victoria Park.  We kept warm under shawls and blankets in between photos and captured some beautiful images before their gorgeous reception!

It was truly a wonderful day and I am incredibly honoured to have met Becca oh-so-long ago – and to have photographed her wedding!  I wish her and Mike the happiest journey in life together!

"Ema is an outstanding wedding photographer - the best!  She is also an awesome person which made hiring her for our wedding a no-brainer.  She arrived the morning of our wedding prepared and effortlessly was with us throughout the day capturing our moments from early morning into the evening.  She knows how to capture candid moments and delivers these moments in the highest of quality.  Wedding photos are memories to last a lifetime... hiring Ema was the easiest decision we made for our wedding day (so much that we changed the date so she could be there!).  Thank you Ema!!  We couldn't be happier." - Becca
