Four Seasons London Ontario Wedding Photography

Four Seasons London Ontario Wedding Photography

Ashley and Matt’s wedding doesn’t seem like a year ago but it is very fast approaching that time! A seriously sweet couple I’ll never forget the moment when Ashley was saying goodbye to her chocolate Lab when the pet sitter came to pick her up as it was an emotional moment- but certainly not the only one throughout the day! Here is the album that I designed for them using all of their favourite images from the day. I love showing the blogs in this way as it shows images that I often would overlook but that are meaningful to the couple.
The videographers In the Moment Productions that Ashley and Matt hired did a wonderful job, check out the video here- http://www.itmproductions.ca/ashley-matthew

It seems fitting that Juan and Trevor’s 1st anniversary is this week, Pride Week here in London Ontario. After their engagement session being one of my faves ever, I knew that their wedding would be great, especially as Dan of Day 2 Knight events was doing the planning and co-ordination. Juan got ready and played golf with the groomsmen and Trevor got ready with the bridesmaids. The personalized travel theme that was incorporated into the day was really well done and the outdoor ceremony and photographs around Forest City National Golf Club worked really well, I especially loved when we could hear a plane coming in and I just yelled at the wedding party to run down the hill and right when they all ran together the plane came over and it was perfect! We were able to go outside for both sunset and night photos and one of their guests was the best sparkler writer ever! Check out their real wedding album below- all of the photos are what they chose to be part of their professional printed album.

Excited to share Cally and Steve’s wedding from right around a year ago. I had am amazing time photographing their engagement session and had photographed Steve’s cousin’s wedding the year before so knew it was going to be a great one! It was photographed mostly at Four Points by Sheraton where the girls got ready, had the ceremony outside under the gazebo and where their gatsby themed reception was held. They both play baseball so photographing some of their formal shots at Dreamers Baseball and then some at Civic Gardens, all while on a yellow school bus in 40 degree heat, everyone were really good about the heat though and as Cally was a big Pokemon Go fan we also did Pokemon go screenshot wedding photos and our take on the  Jurassic Park shot. After some emotional speeches and night shots we captured a bunch of candids including some epic dance floor shots!

It has been a year since Miranda and Nick’s wedding captured, my first dutch reform wedding. The day started at each of their parents houses with plenty of family and friends around helping with getting ready. We captured a first look then headed to capture part of the ceremony. When the bride and groom and all of their guests went into their religious part of the ceremony we shot details of their decor at Norwich Community Centre. After the ceremony we captured their receiving line at the church. All of the family and wedding party photographs captured at Tillsonburg golf & country club. We had lot of fun with the wedding party out on the golf carts and below you can see their album exactly how we designed it using all of their favourite photographs from the day.

Pioneer Village Wedding Photography

Pioneer Village Wedding Photography

I loved capturing Brittany and Reed’s big day almost a year ago! The day started capturing the girls getting hair and makeup done at Nova Vita, then getting ready at one of the bridesmaids houses. Clara captured the dapper dudes getting ready then we met up at the gorgeous green space (Victoria Park) in Fanshawe Pioneer Village. I love the rustic feel of the barn and All of their personal touches were wonderful and I always love capturing emotional dads at their first look and crying grooms! The ceremony was seriously beautiful and perfect lighting for capturing the wedding party and couple photographs on the grounds at Pioneer Village. The reception in the barn was filled with plenty of sweet speeches, dances and fun sparkler shots and dramatic night time dips!

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!

London Ontario Old Court House Wedding Photography

London Ontario Old Court House Wedding Photography

Krystle and Matt were married on a very warm June day last year. I believe it was the first of 5 weddings I shot last year where with the humidity it was over 40 degrees. I loved capturing all the little details of getting ready, especially Krystle’s lovely dress that fit her perfectly! We then headed to the Old Court House for their outdoor ceremony which had a beautiful backdrop of ivey. The bright happy summery colours with the bridesmaids dresses, polka dot groom and groomsmen’s socks and sunflowers were lovely additions. The wedding party we a calm bunch with the heat and we turned up the heat a little more with Krystle and Matt taking some shots around the Old Court House and also in Ivey Park. After all of the fun of the reception we captured a lit up night shot which they used as the whole last page of their album which can be seen in full below.

Deniss and Laura’s wedding really had everything I love about what I do- we made an instant connection at a bridal show and she booked on the spot! We had loads of fun at the unique engagement session which was personalized to their interests including their awesome boat. Their value are right along the same as mine, valuing friends and family, love of the outdoors and music which was provided by their friends. Their gorgeous venue The Ridge at Manitou is just outside Parry Sound. It went with their elegant/rustic theme and provided amazing photographic opportunities. After some very emotional and lovely speehes we loved capturing their first dance and heading outside for some night shots. I may have even let out a Clay Davis style Sheeeit (but in a good way) when I checked out the black and white pic towards the end of the post.

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!

St Thomas Wedding Photography

I met Kendra and Dale through Kayla and Bryan so I knew that they were going to be good people 🙂 This wedding was a dream to photograph, with an amazing team of vendors and people who wear their heart on their sleeve (which makes it easier to photographing the emotions of the day!). The day started with photographing the dapper groom getting ready with his buddies then heading over the parents of the brides house for the girls getting ready. The photo of Kendras dog licking her just after her makeup was finished was one of my favourites from the year. There were some very emotional first looks with Kendra’s dad and her bro-maids which was super cute before heading out to the VW vans. These vans are really popular in Australia, and I loved being able to include them in some of the shots. Their travel theme was brought throughout the decor in the church and at the reception. I photographed this wedding without a second shooter but I was told by the pastor (while the mic was still on inside the church) that I wasn’t aloud to move around at all during the ceremony. I did this for the most part, except for when there was a transition like going over to water the tree together, but despite this I think there are still some great shots showing their personalities from throughout the ceremony.
After photographing the family photographs inside the church straight after the ceremony, we headed to CASO and did most of the wedding party and couple photos there. Kendra had a bunch of special requests including re-creating some of her engagement photos that my studio- mate Kristine from Cheers to you Photography did for them, she just left some extra time in the schedule for this. I was really glad that we had the great indoor space for taking photos when it started raining, we had actually been told that we were the last wedding to use the green/exposed brick wall but from what I’ve heard it is still there which I’m very glad about!
The reception was filled with a funny bro-maid MC, many emotional speeches and wonderful first dances. My mouth literally waters when I think about the delicious family style meal and dessert buffet. To finish it all off we headed outside for a couple of night shots in the rain.
