Ashley & Chris // Cliffside Engagement

For their engagement session, Ashley and Chris invited me to join them at this special valley near their home. Surrounded by cliffs, we enjoyed the sunset while running to to car every 15 minutes to warm up. With frozen fingers and rosy cheeks, they cuddled close and dreamed of their honeymoon in Hawaii.

Ps - At the very end of their shoot while walking back to the car, a rainbow appeared behind them out of nowhere.

Sometimes the best things happen at the best moments. 

Thanks universe.

Martha & Liam // Down To Earth Muskoka Wedding

Even the smell of this day pulled at my heart strings.

Lake water, fresh air, pine, earth. 

All of the elements came together to celebrate a love as grounded as the trees, and it really did feel other worldly in a way. 

Martha and Liam were married on their family private island in Muskoka Ontario. As the boatloads of guests arrived, I couldn't help but think how powerful it was that they were going to be married in the middle of these woods. The earth witnessing something so scared and offering it's beauty in such a modest way.

Needless to say, it was one of my favourite days. 

I love sharing this wedding with the world, and am honoured to have it published Junebug Weddings. Feel free to check out their feature here

 

Jenn & Tyler // Their true love

I fell in love with the truth in these two. 

It's the no fluff, deep down in there, rock solid kind of love. 

It's the 'this is me, and that's you and together we can do anything together' sort of thing.

We watched the sunrise in their neighbourhood together. It was quiet and felt a bit like time was standing still. Pretty perfect if you ask me. 

Sophie & Alastair // Georgian Bay Wedding

Sophie and Alastair are two incredibly genuine and beautiful people. Their friends and family came together to celebrate their story, and it really was the perfect day.

We were tucked away at their family cottage in the morning, and then finished off dancing under sparklers over top of the Georgian Bay. 

The love these two share is a humble kind, and at the root of it all is friendship. 

Friendship. It might just be the most important ingredient.

Nicole & Dan // Golden Toronto Engagement // Part II

I have a lot of clients tell me that they don't need an engagement session. My response is usually something along the lines of 'I totally get it, but it's the best excuse to have an adventure and connect to one another'.

Of course, it's helpful to have experience being in front of the camera before your wedding day. But further, it leaves you with another story to look back on and remember how you felt during these days. 

When I look through these images I can't help but think, this is just the beginning for them. There's an entire lifetime coming their way.

It's pretty awesome. 

Sarah & Eric // A Classic Urban Romance

This day was full, wonderfully full. Of people, of love, of celebration, of so many beautifully thought out details.

Not a single moment was untouched by the hearts of Sarah & Eric. How lucky am I to be the one to tell their story. 

It's inspiring to cross paths with people this humble and happy. They've worked hard to create this incredible life and made their dreams come true.

Thanks for having me guys.
