Ontario Wedding Photographer

What to expect

Kortright Centre Wedding 11

I want you to feel free to be you and have fun on your wedding day.

Who do you typically feel the most comfortable to be yourself around?

Family or friends, am I right?

From our very first meeting I like to get to know my couples. I want to hear all about your wedding day plans and the photography vision for your wedding, but I also want to get to know you and who you are as a couple. That is why when you book with me I am not just your photographer, I am like a friend. And the best way to feel free and comfortable on your wedding day is to have someone you have a connection with and can trust to capture the memories.

I believe photography should add to the experience of your wedding day.

Awkwardly over-posed ‘perfect’ images are just not my jam. They can feel forced and often robotic like. I love creating authentic moments through playing, goofing around, creating connections, and capturing images of you being yourself.

I am all about the in-between moments, the big belly laughs, the loving side glances, and the perfectly imperfect moments. You get to show up, be yourself, enjoy the moments, and not have to worry about the photos on your wedding day.

So, if you are looking for someone to create ‘perfectly posed’ images of you we may not be the best fit. No worries! Everyone's style is different and you deserve a wedding photographer that fits with your photography vision.

I’m in if you are!

You’re not just another client, I am invested in your day just as much as you are! I want to hear all about what you have planned, know what moments you are most looking forward to, see which relationships are the most important to you, and more.

What I bring to your wedding day experience

Piece of mind & Connection

I know that getting in front of a camera can feel awkward. I know because I am someone who prefers to be behind the camera rather than in front of it. That is why it is so important for me to get to know you as a couple. It allows me to provide you with a personalized photography experience that helps you feel comfortable in front of the camera. You will forget all about being in front of the camera.

My couples always tell me ‘sorry, we’re really awkward’, ‘this is our first time’, ‘we don’t know what we’re doing’. I feel you, we all need help feeling comfortable. I do this by having you focus on each other and interacting with each other instead of trying to force you into a generic pose. The entire experience is about you and I want you to have fun getting your photos taken. Treat it as extra time getting to connect with one another while I follow along and create beautiful memories for you.

Help Planning

Planning your wedding can leave you with a lot of decisions to make on things you have no experience with. I am here to share my knowledge with you in a few key areas you may find helpful. Things like time management and timeline planning, booking permits, whether to do a first look or not, and vendor suggestions. I am here for all your questions. Of course if there is ever anything else you need feel free to reach out and I will gladly do what I can to assist.

Pro tip: I always recommend my couples to schedule extra time in their day just for themselves (even if it is just 5 minutes), away from everyone and everything to just relax and enjoy each other for a little while. You'll be surprised how quickly the day goes by and how much you will appreciate the little bit of time just to yourselves.

Beautiful Memories

After everything is done and your wedding day day has come and gone, one of the only things left are you wedding photos (or video if you went for it). My goal with your photos is for you to be able to relive your day and share the memories in the future. Your images should bring you back to the emotions of the moment and allow you to relive connections with important people in your life that may no longer be with you. But most importantly I want you to be able to enjoy moments you may have missed.
