The Three Biggest Reasons Why an Engagement Session is Worth The Expense

Planning

I hear it all too often — “engagement sessions are a really hefty investment and we just don’t think that they’re worth the money” As someone who is in the thick of wedding planning herself, I completely understand the struggle of making sure your budget stays under control. Between catering, decor, and floral design, it’s […]

Engagements

I feel like one of the most overlooked parts of planning an engagement session is how important choosing a location can be. It’s obviously super important to choose a location that your photographer is confident will photograph well and that reflects their shooting style. What is even more important, though, is choosing a location that […]

Weddings

Finding the right words to talk about the Burroughes Building wedding I’m sharing with you all today feels totally impossible to me. I feel like the term “ideal client” gets tossed around a lot as a business owner. From the very beginning, we’re told by every source imaginable to nail down who that person is; […]

Elora Mill Wedding – Jenny and Cal

Weddings

To say that I am so excited to be sharing an Elora Mill wedding is definitely an understatement. About two weeks after Stephen and I moved to Fergus three years ago, he came home and said something along the lines of “did you know they’re opening a wedding venue around the corner from us?” and […]

Weddings

This wedding inspiration was photographed at Woodland Weddings Niagara months ago and there still isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t fawn over these photos. This past year, I decided to finally start offering one-on-one workshops to other photographers. It felt like such a perfect progression for my business, and truthfully, nothing else […]

Weddings

I don’t even think that there are words to express the love I feel for the Elora wedding inspiration! There are few things that speak to my heart the way that flowers in the spring do. Especially the sweet smell of lilacs, which was the jumping point for an entire evening. We set out to […]

Engagements

I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Booking clients exclusively through email still freaks me out every single time. Jenna and Brett currently live in New York City for their jobs and ultimately planned their Muskoka wedding at the Sherwood Inn completely abroad. This meant that we didn’t have a chance to […]

I feel like a broken record every time I say this, but being able to photograph weddings for people who I genuinely love is truly one of the most unexpected gifts I’ve been given from my career. Today’s Whistle Bear wedding is an extra special one for me because it is the wedding of two of […]

Weddings

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the easiest way to make sure that your wedding will be beautiful is to book talented vendors and just let them do their thing. I think that this Gracewood Estates wedding editorial shows why letting extraordinary vendors have a little free reign to get creative is […]
