In honour of their wedding coming up in just a few weeks, here is K and M’s engagement photos. They couldn’t decide between having their engagement photos at Guelph University, where they first met, or at the beautiful Guelph Lake Conservation Area, where the Harris Mill Ruins are found. I love to have my cake […]

Engagement Photos at Guelph University Where They Met

This nostalgia loving couple wanted their engagement photos to be captured in a place that’s very meaningful to them, so we shot an in-home engagement session.

These two were unsure if they should schedule their engagement session in the final days of winter and risk there being no snow on the ground and things looking drab or wait until spring when they could be sure there would be leaves on the trees and fresh surroundings. As you can see, they decided […]

Probably all of my couples in the past couple years know about Chedoke falls in Hamilton, ON now because I can’t shut up about this place. It’s magical, it’s got two waterfalls, not just one, and the hike down is a little risky, which is exactly how I like my adventure sessions.

A couple of adventure-seeking lovers down for barefoot dancing to Ed Sheehan, rolling around in the grass, and pretend stargazing in the sunlight at the Fanshawe Lake Conservation Area in London, Ontario. We also came across a real cute father-son fishing trip with an overjoyed little boy telling us about his “first” catch. Apparently not […]

Paige & Jordan & some beer

Arriving to the beach and seeing huge blocks of ice and frozen snow and a lake frozen as far as the eye can see what seriously the coolest thing. My creative heart was SOARING. 10/10 would recommend for your winter engagement shoot (or any kind of shoot really).

Doing their pregnancy announcement in a greenhouse kinda just seemed right. You know, growing seeds. Plant seeds, baby seeds, you get the picture. I’ve done a couple sessions with these two now, and every time is a treat. They’re naturals in front of the camera and are always down to try something new. Location: Parkway […]

Pregnancy announcement in a greenhouse

We planned this shoot maybe a week before and, I’ll admit, sometimes I’m a bit of a scramble-head. At least, if that was a thing, I would be it. So we drove the hour trek to Hamilton from London, the whole time I’m glancing at the clock thinking “dang, I didn’t think we were that […]

Sunset chasing on their six months

These two are as sweet as they look. Christie had an overnight shift the night before and only had a few hours of sleep before we had our shoot. What a CHAMP. I am extremely excited for their wedding in October. It’s a morning wedding and we’re eating breakfast foods. Yes, it’s okay to be […]
