Wedding | Holly & Paul

Getting married during a pandemic is less than ideal, but after already postponing once in 2020, Holly and Paul made the most of their 2021 wedding date with their decision to turn their Big Fat Greek Wedding into an intimate, romantic elopement for just the two of them… and it was perfect!

Paul started his day getting ready at home in Dutton, Ontario with their daughter who was eager to offer her assistance and feedback throughout each step of the process. One of my favourite moments was hearing her exclaim to her Dad just how beautiful he looked in his bow tie!

I later met up with Holly, who’d spent the night at the beautiful Idlewyld Inn & Spa in London, Ontario. It was here where she, along with the help of her hair and makeup stylists, quietly prepared for the day. Once dressed, Holly quickly reached out to her nearest and dearest on facetime to say hello and accept their well wishes before she headed down to the patio for their first look.

The pair said “I do” in a traditional Greek ceremony before heading towards downtown London to enjoy the stunning architecture of the old courthouse; and finally, to the forest to frolic amongst the trees!

Here are some of my favourite photos from Holly and Paul’s sweet day:

Happy Birthday, Sweet Sophia!

Sophia’s Momma had actually booked me for her maternity session in early 2020, but while the universe was busy making other plans, Sophia made her way into the world. Finally, after over a year of lockdown, we were able to get together to capture another big milestone – Sophia’s first birthday! She’s such a doll! Be sure to scroll all the way to the end for my absolute favourite image from Sweet Sophia’s Birthday Session.

Happy Birthday Sophia!

Tree Farm Mini Sessions

I was recently reminded of one of the beautiful families I photographed during my 2020 tree farm mini sessions and I realized that with the hustle and bustle of the holidays, I never got around to sharing the images from that wonderful day. Here are some of my favourites. Enjoy!

Wedding | Lauren + Tyler

This love story begins in the fall of 2007 at the University of Waterloo where two small town girls, our bride Lauren and our groom’s sister, Chantelle became best friends and eventual roommates over their shared love of country music.

Over the years, Chantelle’s brother Tyler would visit his sister and Lauren and Tyler got to know each other. According to my sources, there was a lot of shameless flirting happening between the two throughout the years, but nothing serious ever came of it… until Chantelle decided to take matters into her own hands, of course ;)

Chantelle had always been aware of the spark between her best friend and her brother, so she devised a plan to bring them even closer together. She decided to have Tyler & Lauren walk down the aisle together at her wedding as this would allow for them to spend a little extra time together… and her plan worked! Soon after Chantelle’s wedding, Lauren and Tyler were dating, travelling together and making their long distance love work.

Which brings us to today, their wedding. Although it wasn’t what they’d originally planned, Lauren and Tyler did not let Covid-19 stop them from getting married. They changed their venue, trimmed their guest list, and did what was necessary to safely say I do.

Here’s the story of Lauren and Tyler’s sweet day:

Wedding | Amanda & Paulo

Amanda and I first met about 10 years ago.

I was shooting one of my first weddings ever and she was there working her magic as a hair stylist for the bride and her maids. Over the years, we supported one another while we honed our respective crafts and worked hard to grow our businesses. We’ve spent a lot of time together, both personal and professional, and I can honestly say I’ve never seen her happier than she has been since falling in love with Paulo.

Covid may have messed with their plans for a tropical destination wedding, but it didn’t stop them getting married. Their intimate October wedding was sweet, simple, charming and lovely – just like them! Here are a few of my favourite images from Amanda and Paulo’s sweet day!

Venue: Casa Bella on the Thames – Chatham, Ontario
Officiant: Dianne Hill
