I consider myself a fortunate person in many ways. In my career in particular, I've had the chance to be a part of so many love stories and meet some of the most amazing humans. I really do seem to attract the nicest, warmest couples whose love is simple, pure and true. These two are no exception. They are gentle, kind and sincere with each other and the people around them.....and they are adorable! Their wedding day this past November was a chilly one, but a simply beautiful one at one of my favourite venues to boot! We love Whistle Bear - its the most perfect, cozy spot for a large winter wedding. Thanks for braving the weather to all of you and your families. See, it doesn't even look cold in the images! xo
We pulled this one from the archives from over a year ago! We love the gothic architecture of U of T - it's such a classic and romantic spot to make images in the heart of the city!
I feel like I can accomplish a lot. I've always been pretty much on the ball and a great multi-tasker. Then I met Jon and Zevi. Within 6 months, these 2 are renovating a house (a lot of it with their own two hands), planning a quick wedding, working full time, teaching over the summer and fitting in engagement sessions, friend/family wedding parties plus a ton more that I don't even know about! I bet these 2 are very much looking forward to a honeymoon this fall! #bringonthebeach !
We love this venue! Gracewood mansion at Kurtz Orchard in Niagara-on-the-Lake is one of our favourite wedding venues to photograph at! It is simply elegant, natural, romantic and stunning for photo locations. Sami and Neil had the loveliest day there! There is something very intimate and personal about having access to an entire property all your own for the day. The mansion, the grounds, the tented reception area. Its all yours for the day! Your guests can meander the grounds and enjoy the sunshine and beauty of the vineyards and orchards. It's perfect!
Talk about couple goals! These two are elegant, sophisticated, compassionate, kind and their smiles could light up the room during a power outage for sure! But they are also funny and quirky, never taking themselves too seriously and always up for time with friends. As high school sweethearts, these two have seen each other through thick and thin and continue to do so with laughter, love and respect for one another. I love their love - it's long, real, trusted and enduring. It was such an enormous pleasure to have met them, let alone be with them on this long awaited day. We can't wait to see what incredible blessings your love story will bring!

One of the most rewarding parts of being a wedding photographer is getting to know families on one of their most memorable and important days. It's a learning experience the whole day through. From start to end if you pay attention to the tones of voice, the body language, the conversations - you can get to know so much about the dynamics of family and of the love and respect therein. I think it makes us as photographers grow and create in a whole new kind of way. A more thoughtful, loving and giving way. Documenting each day with individuality and care for the families and the relationships who will be glad for real images from a day that will forever be engrained in their hearts.

It's about a month until these two tie the knot and what better way to celebrate than to reminisce on their engagement session last fall. These 2 had me in stitches the whole day as they told me stories and we conversed about our common love of football - although not the same team sadly! We are so looking forward to he end of next month!
