This past Fall I had the pleasure of meeting the sweet and adorable Levasseur family for a photo session in the woods. Their lovely little Belle is such a treasure, and despite the chilly air she did amazing. These three were a total breeze to photograph because their connection and love for each other is so tangible. I loved our shoot together and am so happy to be sharing my favourites on the blog!
As a photographer, it’s my job to make the most of any situation with a smile, including days where it doesn’t rain, it pours. I always try to reassure couples that rain doesn’t mean game over, it just means plan B. That said, I also know firsthand what it feels like to be a bride with big plans for an outdoor wedding wake up to rain on her wedding day. When I showed up to Stephanie’s hotel room to photograph her getting ready moments, I was expecting a bit of natural disappointment due to the weather. But what I found was a girl who couldn’t be more excited to be marrying the love of her life, rain or no rain, and was prepared to embrace this amazing day. Stephanie’s positive and bubbly demeanour set the tone for the entire day, and her pure joy was simply contagious.
One of my favourite rainy day backups is the use of a greenhouse for portraits. Dry, full of plants and flowers, and lots of natural light. Check, check, check! This time it was Parkway Gardens that came through for us, and I absolutely loved our short but sweet couple shoot there following a beautiful ceremony at Bellamere. The colours were vibrant and Chris and Stephanie, as always, were simply glowing with love for each other.
Photographing this wedding and getting to know Chris and Stephanie and their families was an absolute delight. I’m so excited to share some of my favourites from their wedding day! Enjoy!
A big thank you to my amazing second shooter, Orsolya Gyorgy! xo
One of the photography trends that I’m loving these days is the move towards lifestyle headshots “in the wild” as opposed to formal studio headshots. There’s a time and purpose for both styles, but a more casual, artistic approach is definitely what resonates more with me as a photographer, and it’s something I love doing. I was so thrilled when best friend bloggers Natalie Young and Britt Havens asked me to do some lifestyle promotional photos for them. Sadly, they made the difficult decision to close their blog (Three Little Crowns) before they could use these new branding shots, but I couldn’t let them go to waste, so to speak! I’m so happy to be sharing some of my favourites here on the blog today.

It’s so hard to believe that the first time I had this gorgeous family in front of my lens, sweet little only-child Anya was just a tiny little babe. Now’s she a big sister to the ever adorable Mila, and I’ve had the privilege of photographing them several times over the last few years. Last Fall we found ourselves in the woods on a rainy evening for their family session, and despite the grey skies and wet grass, we had so much fun. I just love this family and always enjoy capturing their candid love of life and each other. Here are some favourites from their session!
I had so much fun photographing Erin and Steve’s beautiful wedding at the Oakville Golf Club last Fall. Their portrait time coincided with what we photographers refer to as golden hour… That magical 2-hour window before sunset where the light is warm and soft and flattering… as long as it isn’t covered up by clouds. When we saw the rainy, overcast skies the day of the wedding, we assumed that golden sunlight we were looking forward to would be very unlikely. However, the sun peeked through at exactly the right moment, and we were able to get some beautiful sun soaked photos after all. Here are my favourite images from Erin and Steve’s wonderful wedding day!
As always a huge thank you to my amazing and talented assistant and second shooter Orsolya Gyorgy.
