Lyndsay & Jeff's Engagement

L & J are two very kind hearted souls, which made photographing the two of them together so easy. Jeff grew up in Port Hope, where they now both live in their first place together with their adorable dog Penny (which you can confirm below). We decided to use his romantic little hometown as the background for their engagement shoot, and we even stopped off to visit their home so their dog could get in on the action. When I asked them to tell me something about themselves that defines them as individuals Lyndsay said Jeff is silly and doesn’t take life to seriously and she was soooo right, he laughed A LOT which made her laugh too - which made my job documenting them together even more fun!!

If you haven’t heard of Port Hope, Ontario it’s actually been used for it’s charming character in the most recent movie IT by Stephen King. They even took me to the spooky alleyway with the “Quality Meats” butcher shop sign. I’m so extremely grateful for discovering, learning about and seeing new sights because of all of my wonderful clients. THANK YOU!

Grace & Matt

A sentimental wedding in the heart of the city, with love and laughter in the air. Grace & Matt are two people truly meant for each other. The moment they saw each other, all the stress leading up to the big day seemed to just fall away. They cried together, laughed together, played a good round of rock-paper-scissors and hardly left the others side. In every emotional moment they were there to wipe the others tears, and hold their hand. It was such a pleasure to be apart of their day, and I wish them great happiness in this new journey together.

Katlyn & Mack's Engagement

Katlyn & Mack first met in elementary school, and life brought them back together years later where they found love and adventure within each other. When we were deciding on a place to document their love, they mentioned this gorgeous place where they got engaged. Of course she said YES in warmer weather, but we decided to go and see it's winter beauty and revisit this special place in their hearts.

Furnace Falls in Kinmount, Ontario is absolutely beautiful, and I intend on going back in the summer for some swimming and adventuring myself. We even stopped in at the old mill in town (so we could warm up our fingers in the car on the way there) and dealt with some gusty and snowy winds. It’s truly a blessing to discover so many wonderful new places with strangers that become my friends. Thank you for trusting me :)

Susie & Steve

Susan and Steve tied the knot in the comfort of her parents backyard. The ceremony was set amongst beautiful gardens and surrounded by their nearest and dearest. Complete with an adorable food truck buffet, and homemade sweets, they partied into the night under the glow of the backyard lights!

Jenny & Garett

J & G planned a blissful northern ceremony on Crystal lake. I had been looking forward to photographing their wedding from the moment I met them, not just because cottage country is such a romantic spot, but because their excitement was contagious. With the breeze off the lake, dockside campfires, and the bride arriving to the altar by boat, I was truly blessed to be a part of it.

J & G are two genuine, kind and beautiful people who are so in love! They both had the go with the flow attitude, and it made the day so calm end enjoyable. With so much love from their friends and family it was a joy to witness, I wish them so much happiness!!

Meagan & Seans Engagement

This past weekend, I headed out to the Trenton area to meet up with this lovely couple to take some engagement shots, and I got lost. I learned never to trust apple maps, and to always double check how to get there the old school way! When your map says “you have arrive, park your car” while you’re on the 401, you really do start to panic. Luckily I had left early and google maps showed me the way and I was only a few minutes late!

None of us had been to Sager Conservation Area, so we got to explore the space and get to know each other while we checked out all it’s beauty! Thank goodness for awesome couples like these, who trust me to capture their love!

Steven & Theas Engagement

When I first met these two, I knew photographing them was going to be a treat, and they didn’t disappoint. They were SO much fun to photograph, we listened to their favourite album, and they giggled and laughed the whole time. We did their photos at a meaningful place in their hearts, their pastor home, which was GORGEOUS! They met in church, and fell in love, and are now planning their dream wedding together. I’m so grateful to have met these two and in the short time we spent together I already consider them my friends!

A Wintertime Wedding at the Royal Ashburn

Kristie & Ian were married at the Royal Ashburn golf club on a snowy and beautiful December day. The ceremony was filled with love and emotion, followed by some very serious dancing. I left that evening with my heart full, and so grateful that I got to witness and capture their love!
