Mikayla & Justin's Engagement

St. Jacob's Engagement Photography

< Back to Engagements

I first worked with Mikayla a number of years ago through my work with Gemini Models in Kitchener, where she is signed as a model.  You may even recognize her from the stylized bridal creative photoshoot that I’ve been sharing slowly on my Facebook fan page and Instagram!  It was at this bridal photo shoot that Mikayla told me that she was set on me being her wedding photographer, whenever that day comes!  It was only a few months later that her boyfriend Justin proposed to her, and we were on our way with booking their wedding date.

We thankfully quickly managed to book Mikayla and Justin’s engagement session right at the tail end of the peak of the fall colour, and we took their beautiful photos at the Millrace Trail in St. Jacobs. I am in love with these photos  So so adorable! And the fall colour was spectacular. Some of my favourite images from this shoot are towards the bottom, in the woodlot just off of the trail. So pretty!

Congratulations Mikayla and Justin on your engagement! Can’t wait for your wedding day this spring!



"From the moment I met Ema, through our work with Gemini Models, I knew I wanted her to shoot my wedding someday. Ema’s talent is rare. Her ability to do whatever it takes to get the most perfect shot, how she is able to capture light so perfectly, and how she is able to make you feel comfortable and give you feedback to ensure the photos turn out spectacularly. She is able to capture the most beautiful and most natural looking photos. She made my husband and I, our families, and our wedding party feel so comfortable and the laughter captured in our photos are genuine and real. Ema’s professionalism and sweetness made our photoshoots and planning our wedding peaceful and fun! We are forever obsessed with our wedding photos and are so grateful to have these photos from our favourite day to look back on for years to come. Thank you, Ema!" - Mikayla
