Barn Wedding Ontario Photography

I had known Chantelle and Kyle for years, she was my go-to crochet outfit maker for a bunch of my newborn/ cake smash props. I photographed their family a bunch of times and was so happy when they asked me to photograph their big day. On a chilly fall day last year Clara and I captured them getting ready then their amazing first look at Fanshawe Pioneer Village. We had fun incorporating their love of superheros into their wedding party photos and their kids- the super adorable ring bearer and flower girl. The outdoor ceremony on the farm was beautiful and we were even able to get some awesome fog shots of the two newlyweds and then later in the night, dramatic rainy night photos. The reception was a lot of fun with many big moments captured and possibly the best last photo of the night ever (sorry Chantelle just had to share lol).

Ilijana and Gordon were married on thanksgiving weekend 2016 and I’m happy to finally blog their album of their big day. I captured the girls getting ready at home with their big fur baby Rufus. The guys got ready at the Ivey Spencer Leadership Centre London Ontario Wedding Photography and they were married in a fun indoor ceremony which included Abba! They had fun doing photos on site with their friends and family and after capturing all of the moments of the reception we headed outside for some night photos.

Bellamere Winery Fall wedding photography

Bellamere Winery Fall wedding photography

Jen and Jay were married just over a year ago at Bellamere Winery in an open air ceremony with a rustic feel. I loved the colours that they chose and Bellamere has so much variety for different backgrounds that we were able to capture a large variety of photographs of the wedding party and couple in a short amount of time. The DJ kept everyone up dancing and I loved capturing the moment of the bride literally kicking off her shoes. I love being able to incorporate their personalities into the photographs and knowing they loved all things horror/halloween from the engagement session they had to do a thriller lit up pose. I believe the moon that night was a supermoon which was very cool!

Candid Wedding Photography South Western Ontario

Candid Wedding Photography South Western Ontario

My friend Mallory married her love Correy last June in a beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony in Shedden, Ontario. I captured all of the details which were from some of my favourite vendors and it’s not too often I capture the photos of the guys getting ready- its usually my second photographer so it was fun to hang with the guys on this one.  Once the girls arrived from having the all important hair and makeup- Mallory is a Hair and Makeup artist in London Ontario, we did a first look with her parents which was super sweet. This wedding was so packed full of great moments that I think I captured just as many sweet candid moments at this tuesday afternoon wedding as I usually would at a full day wedding!

Venue: Shedden Keystone Complex
Dress: Decorous Designs
Flowers: Time 4 flowers
Cake: Zandy Cakes
Shoes: DFO
Makeup: Elissa Darling
Hair: Chantel Antone (Style House Salon)

Nova Scotia Wedding Photography

Nova Scotia Wedding Photography

This past weekend was the anniversary of my best friend Dayna’s wedding and so I just had to post some shots from the day.. Even when I’m Maid of honour you still can’t keep the camera out of my hands.. We got ready and stayed at Oceanstone resort and loved the ombre purple dresses. Devon and Dayna’s first look was emotional and then we headed to Peggy’s Cove for the wedding party photos (obviously none of them here as I was in them!). The ceremony and reception were at St Margarets Sailing club and all of the gorgeous decor was painted by my art school friend, and it was a group effort to set it all up the night before with plenty of personal touches. The speeches were emotional and all the east coasters danced so hard we made the dancefloor shake. I loved the Live Art by Najma painting which was done throughout the evening. Happy Anniversary guys, love and miss you!
I would LOVE to photograph more weddings out in Nova Scotia and in most cases I am happy to waive travel fees so please contact me about your east coast wedding!

Best of 2016: Wedding Photography

London Ontario Wedding Photography

This 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! The posts will be this one which is couples (and a couple of just the bride or groom), this wednesday will be Wedding Parties and next wednesday will be candid moments. 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!

Below you will see some of my favourite images from the year, you’ll see some from all of the seasons. Some on freezing winter days, I did 4 weddings this year that with the humidity were 40 degrees or over and everything in between. I everything from elopements with just a couple of guests to 300 guest affairs. I photographed weddings in locations such as Muskoka, Belmont, St Thomas, Ingersoll, Woodstock, Melbourne, Thamesford, Mt Brydges, St Marys, as well as many of the local London venues. If you would like more information about my London Ontario Wedding Photography follow this link.

City Hall Wedding Photography London Ontario

City Hall Wedding Photography London Ontario

Mallory and Bob decided to have a low key celebration of their love which started at City Hall in London, Ontario. I loved capturing the candid and emotional moments as the important guests arrived and detail shots of the important aspects of their day such as Bob’s funky ties, Mallory’s beautiful flowers, dress and the rings. We went into the council chambers (which have not been renovated which is lovely) and they had their short but sweet ceremony. As it was right around 1 year ago, there were beautiful fall colours so we then headed to the Elm Hurst Inn in Ingersoll for some family and couple photographs. The grounds there have so many different photography opportunities. Afterwards the couple enjoyed a very special thanksgiving dinner with their guests.
