Elora Mill Autumn Wedding | Sarah + Sam

Elora Mill Autumn Wedding | Sarah + Sam

Elora Ontario Wedding Photography

Over the last nearly 15 years, I’ve been truly fortunate to have worked with countless wonderful couples who were just a dream to work with.  I often find myself in disbelief that this is in fact, my actual career! When Sarah and Sam first reached out to me, I had an immediate feeling that they would be a couple who also made me feel that deep gratitude for the meaningful work that we as wedding photographers do. Within minutes of meeting for their engagement session, I knew I was right!

I was super excited to photograph their wedding day, and on the big day, I was accompanied by my secondary photographer David, who met up with Sam for his preparation photos, while I photographed Sarah’s prep.  David and I then arranged for their first look in Elora’s Victoria Park, where Sam and Sarah saw each other first the first time that day.  I love that they chose to share personal wedding vows with each other prior to the ceremony.  Even though I stayed out of earshot so that the moment could be theirs alone, I found myself feeling a bit emotional seeing how much love they have for one another.

The first look was followed by some family photos as well as a photoshoot for the bride and groom. We then proceeded to the Foundry Building for their lovely ceremony, followed by more family photos and some cute evening sun photos of Sam and Sarah along the bridge!

Even though our photography coverage time came to a close fairly early into the reception, David and I could see that it would be a super fun night for Sarah and Sam, and all their amazing guests.  It was truly fantastic working with them and the photos we created are a dream!

Dark Horse Estates Winery Wedding | Alyssa + Derek

Grand Bend Wedding Photography

Alyssa and Derek’s beautiful wedding took place at Dark Horse Estates Winery on a lovely sunny day in Grand Bend. It was a few years ago when Alyssa and Derek first contacted me about their wedding.  We photographed their fun fall engagement photoshoot in Guelph, but then like many couples, they were forced to reschedule their wedding day.  When their day finally arrived, I was so excited! I was extra excited since Alyssa and Derek had informed me that they were big Harry Potter fans, and would be having a “nerd” themed wedding. Yes please! 

When their wedding day finally arrived, I was fortunate to be accompanied by my wonderful and talented associate photographer Kasia.  We always have a great time working together! Kasia started the day with Derek and his groomsmen, while I met up with Alyssa and her bridesmaids for their preparation photos. 

The bridal party prep was followed by a touching first look behind the winery, and a bridal party photoshoot.  I love the photo of Alyssa using “The Force” on the groomsmen!

During cocktail hour, this clever couple hired a magician to entertain guests with some very cool card tricks.  In all our combined years as photographers, Kasia and I had never seen a magician at a wedding – it was a great idea that I hope catches on!

Finally, during the reception, we snuck out for some dramatic sunset photos and photos in the wine cellar. 

It was truly a wonderful day and Kasia and I are honoured to have been Alyssa and Derek’s photographers!

Melrose United Church Wedding | C-Hotel by Carmen’s Wedding Reception

When James and Courtney first contacted me about their wedding day, I could tell right away that they would be a super fun couple to work with! Our first in person meeting was for their engagement session at Princess Point in Hamilton – one of their favourite places to spend quality time together. Their love for one another was palpable during that photoshoot, and I couldn’t wait to photograph their wedding day!

When the big day finally arrived, I met with James and Courtney at Melrose United Church, an iconic stone church in the city’s southwest end. James and Courtney got ready in different locations within the church, and before their ceremony they held hands with their backs to one another in order to calm their nerves and have a quiet moment together before seeing each other for the first time across the aisle.  In 15 years of wedding photography this was the first time I had seen a couple do this and it was SO SWEET!

Their emotional ceremony was followed by family photos and bride and groom portraits on the church grounds, which were adorned in the autumn colours!

Courtney and James’ wedding reception took place at the nearby C-Hotel by Carmen’s, where we captured some fun nighttime photos outside with the the unique hotel facade!

I had such an amazing time getting to know and to work with this lovely couple, and I can’t wait to see them again sometime!

The results were stunning!” – James

Bruce County Wedding Photography | Raven + Eric

Bruce County Farm Wedding Photograhper

Raven and I first met many years ago through our mutual work with The Gemini Agency, and I was both honoured and delighted when she invited me to be her wedding photographer!  I absolutely love farm and country weddings and I was excited to make my way up to Bruce County to be her and Eric’s wedding photographer!

When the big day finally arrived, we met at Raven’s family’s property and started with some getting ready photos.  We had to be stealth such that we could capture some photos of the bridesmaids with Raven, and the groomsmen with Eric, all without Raven and Eric seeing each other prior to their beautiful outdoor ceremony.  The touching ceremony was followed by a champagne toast, family photos, more photos of the bridal party, and of course — photos of Raven and Eric as husband and wife!

I kept an eye on the sunset and snuck the bride and groom out for some GORGEOUS sunset photos which I absolutely love! The reception was a blast — literally, with fireworks!

Everything about Raven and Eric’s Bruce County farm wedding was perfection and I can’t wait to see them again!

KW Guelph St. Jacobs Elopement Photographer

Christina and Trevor are a fun-loving couple who wanted to celebrate their marriage with a microwedding elopement and their closest family and friends.  They rented a beautiful airbnb in St. Jacobs Ontario overlooking the river.  Leading up to their big day, we had a number of snowstorms and some very frigid weather!  It was as though the weather gods were looking out for us, however, because when their wedding day arrived it had warmed up a bit AND we were blessed with freshly-fallen snow from the day prior for our photos.  I had such a great time photographing this wonderful couple and couldn’t get enough snuggles from their beautiful, friendly golden retriever pup!

I’ve noticed that microweddings and elopements have been becoming increasingly popular over the last few years.  The pace and intimacy of smaller events make for great candid photography!

Contact us and we’d be happy to discuss your microwedding and elopement photography needs 🙂

Snowy Winter Engagement Photography| Han + Linjie

Snowy Winter Engagement Photoshoot | Han + Linjie

University of Guelph Winter Arboretum Engagement

Han and Linjie wanted a snowy winter engagement photoshoot to celebrate their upcoming wedding! Winter photoshoots can be tricky…ideally you want fresh snow, but it can’t be snowing too heavily as that results in wet hair, faces, and camera equipment.  You want it to be cold enough for the snow to stay on the ground, but not so cold that noses, hands, and ears are red.  It can be a lot to ask in the winter months! Thankfully, we were graced with the perfect combination of factors for this photoshoot and had so much fun working together! I can’t wait for their wedding day!

Richmond Hill Wedding Photography | Meaghan + Ryan

Holland Landing | East Gwillimbury Wedding Photography

Meaghan, Ryan, and I first worked together in 2019 at their chilly but beautiful winter engagement photoshoot in Cambridge.  They had been engaged in 2018 and had their wedding set for 2020.  Well, we all know what happened in 2020 – and like many couples, Meaghan and Ryan pushed their wedding ahead towards hopefully more certain times.  It was summer 2022 by the time we saw each other again!  We laughed at how the last few years had felt simultaneously like an eternity and yet also passed in the blink of an eye.  They commented how in the four years since their engagement, their flower girl had grown into a flower teenager!

It was a warm and beautiful day when I met up with first Ryan, then Meaghan, at their respective getting-ready locations in the Holland Landing area to photograph their preparation and detail photos.  We then proceeded to their ceremony and reception location, a gorgeous bnb in nearby Richmond Hill.  It was a lovely ceremony, followed by family photos and a fun, candid, bridal party photoshoot.  The reception was lively and the dessert table delectable!

I had a wonderful time with this wonderful couple and am honoured to have been their photographer <3

Fenelon Falls Wedding Photographer | Victoria + Derek

Fenelon Falls Wedding Photography

Victoria and Derek’s beautiful wedding day took place in Fenelon Falls, at Victoria’s family’s gorgeous property.  I’ve photographed a handful of weddings in Fenelon Falls, and I always love the cottage country feel.  I met up with Derek and then Victoria at their respective getting-ready locations – Derek at a waterfront AirBNB and then Victoria at the family homestead.  I love photographing the preparation coming together and seeing the day unfold.

With the final touches applied and the dress put on, Victoria had an emotional first look with her bridesmaids and then with her father behind the house, while Derek and the groomsmen started the ceremony proceedings outside, on the opposite side of the home past a wooded area.  The ceremony took place with the lovely late afternoon sun, and overlooked a beautiful little lake and fountain. Uniquely, in my 15+ years of wedding photography, this was the first time I had seen a ceremony which featured a butterfly release! The monarch butterflies seemed more eager to stay put on their fingers than fly away, which was pretty darn cute 🙂

After the ceremony, we took care of family photos and the bridal party photoshoot, then proceeded to the quonset hut which had been beautifully decorated into an amazing reception space.

As you’ll see in the gallery below, Victoria has such a beautiful smile, and this wedding day was full laughs and positive energy!

I had a great time working with Victoria and Derek and wish them all the best!

Backyard Wedding | Kitchener Wedding Photographer

Nicole and Trevor celebrated their beautiful wedding day with a lively backyard wedding in Kitchener.  We had such a great time at their engagement session and I was truly looking forward to their wedding day!

We met at a gorgeous property in Kitchener, where Nicole arrived with her hair and make up complete, and only the final touches before the big reveal. Her mum helped her with her veil, then we were off to the first look with Trevor, who was waiting anxiously to see her.  Their emotional first look was followed by a super fun bridal party photoshoot!  Their bridal party was BIG and consisted of childhood friends they had known for many years. It was very sweet!

Following the bridal party photos, we headed off to the ceremony (more tears!), family photos, and sunset photos!

It was truly a magical day and I am so happy to have spent it with Nicole and Trevor and their closest family and friends!

Word of mouth is so key in this line of work and I am always honoured and grateful when clients of mine refer their loved ones to me for their wedding photography!  Kate and Justin were referred to me by Marissa and Ryan, whose wedding I had photographed at the very beginning of my career over a decade ago!

When I first met Kate and Justin in person at Justin’s family cottage for their incredible engagement photoshoot (featuring a drone and boat!), I knew we would have an amazing time at their wedding, too.

On the big day, my associate photographer Avan and I started the day at Langdon Hall in Cambridge for Kate and Justin’s preparation, followed by an emotional first look on the Langdon Hall grounds.  We then proceeded to the chapel at Doon Heritage Village for the ceremony (where Justin’s parents had been married a few decades prior!), and finally, off to the beautifully-decorated Tapestry Hall in Cambridge for their super fun reception!
