Winter Engagement Photography London Ontario

Winter Engagement Photography London Ontario

Danielle and Joseph are getting married today and it was fun to look back on these fun Winter Engagement Photography London Ontario which were photographed at Civic Gardens. This park really has so much variety and is nice year round! This lovely couple had never had photographs taken together before so I was so happy to be chosen as the one to capture this important time in their lives! Here is something new I am starting with my engagement session blogs, rather than me telling you their story, I thought it would be nice to start to get their story written straight by the couple. Check it out below!

We met online and eventually went for coffee and the rest is history.

Joe- Damn, nice hair
Danielle- His hair cut makes him look like a squire from the nights of old!

Went to Niagara Falls, this was the one of the first places we had gone together. Joe had a masterful plan. We hopped on the Swedish Ferris wheel. Once the Ferris Wheel is at the top Joe states, “Holy Shit Danielle whats that?” and points because Danielle is so gullible. Danielle looks back. Joe has the ring out and ready when Danielle looks back. Then asks the question, “Will You Marry Me?” Danielle states an obvious yes. We then play Dinosaur Mini Golf.

Joe- Love how sweet and soft She is. I love how nice Danielle is to people.
Danielle- I love how mature and clever Joseph is.

St. George Parish wedding photography

St. George Parish Wedding Photography


I’ve listened to many webinars and attended classes at the photography conference I went to back in February with the theme of finding your ideal client. Cibeli and Michael check of all of my ‘ideal client’ boxes, which certainly is rare as most of the time I know if a couple of these points are checked, I know I will really enjoy photographing the wedding.

  • They value their photography. At one point when we were emailing back and forth Cibeli and Michael mentioned that they had to cut their budget so were going to get a family member to do the photography, but instead we worked out that if they got a smaller package and paid in installments it would work for them.
  • They love to travel- we totally connected straight away because Cibeli is from Brazil and Michael is from here in London Ontario but they are living in Sydney Australia- which I loved their boomerang favors for their guests.
  • They are passionate- about each other, their family, and their careers. Michael is a chiropractor and I loved that they did a photo of him adjusting Cibeli, and she is a Reiki Master & Crystal Awakening Therapist and I loved that she brought a rose quartz stone to harness the engergy of the day.
  • They danced and rocked out to their favourite music
  • They brought their personalities into the wedding- through the time of year, celebrating with their family and friends on thanksgiving.  Being out in nature with the fall colours and bringing that theme into their decor. Love of good food with the wonderful meal from Greenhills Golf Club and cake by Bright Eyes Bakery, love of animals with the horse and carriage and her amazing dress with detachable train, tiara and shawl which certainly made her a fall princess!

Best of 2016: Wedding Parties

Below you will see some of my favourite images captured of wedding parties from the year, everything from traditional portraits to running from Pokemon! Capturing candid, timeless photographs is one of the main things I aim to do with my wedding photography and as I’m sure you’ll see from these photographs, making sure to have some great photos with your closest friends and family who have stood up with you for your wedding is very important to me. If you are interested in the wedding photo locations / wedding venues of where the photographs were captured- mainly in London Ontario but some in other parts of South-Western Ontario, they are listed in order in the tags of the post.

As I mentioned in my previous blog, 2016 was a big year for weddings- I photographed 31 in Ontario and was Bride, Maid of Honour and Bridesmaid outside of Ontario! I have decided to split up the wedding photography blogs this year as otherwise they would be far too long and I find it hard to cut down! Last week was couples (and a couple of just the bride or groom), this #weddingwednesday will be candid moments and next wednesday will be Wedding Parties. There are so many more shots from each of these weddings that I could have chosen that I really could make a much larger series of these blogs, including best dress shot, best ring shot etc, but the list would go on forever but I promise that in the coming months all of the weddings will be featured right here on my blog so be sure to check back!


To kick off the new year I thought I would put together a series of blogs showing some of my favourite photos I captured in 2016. You can catch up on the previous posts below-

Civic Gardens Wedding Photography

Civic Gardens Wedding Photography

Ashley and Adam are no strangers to the wedding industry, he is a DJ and she has modeled gowns in bridal shows before, so they decided that as they wanted to be married on their dating-anniversary, but didn’t want to wait for years for that to come around to being a saturday, that they would marry on a tuesday. They knew that the day of the week doesn’t matter, the people who matter most will make sure that they can get the time off work! They also planned their wedding in a very short amount of time, booking me just one month before the big day, another reason why doing a weekday is a good idea. Their gorgeous daughter lit up the room (and photos) and there is a couple of shots where which show why it is so important to have 2 photographers for your ceremony, showing the different angles which really captured the emotions. The big wedding party was awesome with the snowy cold weather and I just loved the functional and fun centerpieces. Their guests partied on and I loved capturing the moments of the speeches, first dances, cake cutting and bouquet and garter tosses. Civic gardens complex was the perfect venue for this cold outside but warm inside wedding!

West London Alliance Church Wedding

West London Alliance Church Wedding

After doing some detail shots and meeting up with the bride to have her makeup at Mac in Masonville Mall, we photographed the gorgeous Ceremony at West London Alliance Church Wedding. Melissa and David got lucky with the weather on the wedding in early spring last year and we were able to have fun with their wedding party at Civic Gardens. The reception followed at the Ramada Inn.
