Ahopelto Wedding | Forest Motel and Retreat | Stratford, Ontario

Kasper & Josey had a beautiful summer wedding at the Forest Motel & Retreat in Stratford, Ontario. The groom was almost unrecognizable with his newish slick hairdo! (Revisit their winter engagement session in which Kasper had long dreads) We had lots of fun with the couple and their wedding party, who were really into "peeking" and Dylan Mckay (Luke Perry), as you will notice in the pictures! I also really enjoyed one of the bridesmaid's rendition of the Super Mario's theme song on the accordion, while the couple signed their marriage certificate. A special thanks to Steph from Behind The Scenes Photography for being my second shooter.

#GirlsWithHorses | Pine Grove | Thames Centre, On

I recently had the pleasure of tagging along with my friend Michelle and her two friends Alyssa & Jaye to shoot some horses for the very first time! Apparently there are a few rules for Equestrian photography, which I already forgot lol. Hopefully Jaye will forgive me! Horses are such beautiful animals, it was a joy to shoot them...oh and the girls were beautiful too!

Cormack Wedding | Blue Water, Ontario

Michal & Sariah got married on August 1st in what looks like it could be a destination wedding in Mexico or Dominican Republic. It was actually in Blue Water, Ontario in the backyard of a beautiful lake-front cottage. The view of Lake Huron was amazing but we did end up getting some rain. It didn't ruin their magical day and as the evening went on, there was a beautiful sunset, a release of paper lanterns (only a few survived the flight) & even fireworks!

An amazing end to wonderful wedding day!

Tang Wedding | London, Ontario University sweethearts Zhe & Melody got married at the end of July. Their ceremony was at St. Peter's Basilica. After the ceremony we travelled to Springbank Civic Garden Complex for some pictures and then to The Best Western Lamplighter Inn for the reception. The reception was full of laughs, happy tears, games and lots of dancing! A great celebration of Zhe & Melody's love for each other! Thanks to Steph from Behind The Scenes Photography for assisting!

Abdellatif Wedding | Ivey Spencer Leadership Centre | London, Ontario

Zack and Clare were married a couple of weeks ago at the Ivey Spencer Leadership Centre and I was honoured to photograph them on their big day! The groomsmen wanted to stand out, as you can see with their coloured socks! Zack had a really hard time doing up his tie. He must have re-done it 3 or 4 time. He should have taken a cue from the bride Clare, who like lots of brides, are into Pinterest for DIYs! She found some fun ideas for pictures including moustaches and lips, which they later saved for the photo booth. I hope they had a good honeymoon in Greece and can relive their day with their pictures!

Butler Wedding | Woodstock, Ontario | Craigowen Golf & Country Club

Katie & Jason got hitched at the beautiful Craigowen Golf and Country Club. I first arrived at Katie's parent's farm to take some getting ready photos of the bride and bridemaids. After a few minutes, it started pouring rain. it would stop momentarily so we would sneak in and out for photos. If you notice in some pictures below, the bridesmaids got creative and even made garbage bag dress covers! lol The rain did stop once we got to Craigowen, but it was still wet and humid,   so a big thank you to the wedding party for putting up with the weather!

Ramos Family Shoot | Orlando, Florida

This past March I was in Florida visiting my sister Brenda. We were all excited to be welcoming the newest addition to the family, my nephew Alexander Keith aka Xander. Little did my sister know, here in Canada there's a beer named Alexander Keith LOL. I was so happy to have the opportunity to shoot some family photos for them since we haven't gotten together since we were in Marco Island 2 summers ago. My mom was also visiting, so of course I took shots of her and her grand children! Can't wait to see them again!

Josey & Kasper Engagement Session | London, Ontario

I'm so glad the snow is melting away but happy we were able to capture Josey & Kasper's snowy engagement shoot! Kasper wanted to make sure we did the engagement shoot while he still had his dreads because he was cutting them off (after EIGHT years) as part of their Stag & Doe. Josey & Kasper were such great sports and braved the cold!! They got right into it as you will see in some pictures. Thanks to Steph from Behind The Scenes Photography for being a second shooter! Oh.. and the guy who let us borrow his fur hat for some photos lol

Mason Newborn Shoot | London, Ontario

Two years ago, I had the pleasure of shooting Bentley's newborn photos. Recently, I got the chance to shoot his little brother Mason. Mason was 9 days old at the time of the photoshoot. We even had a chance to re-create Bentley's "bucket photo" for his brother!

Julie & Jason Engagement Shoot | London, Ontario

February is the month of LOVE and a perfect opportunity to shoot in the beauty of the Canadian winter! I had the pleasure of meeting 2016 Bride + Groom; Julie + Jason. I was invited by Steph from Behind The Scenes Photography to assist in the engagement shoot and their future wedding. It was the perfect day for the shoot, not too cold! I did end up soaking my pants/socks/shoes but it was totally worth it as we got some great shots. Here are some of my shots!

Violet Newborn Shoot | London, Ontario

I had the pleasure of shooting thirteen day old winter baby Violet not too long ago, as her parents received this photography session as a shower gift. She was such a pleasure to work with and slept most of the time, letting us do our thing. We were able to incorporate many of the gifts given to Violet into the shoot. I'm happy the family will have these pictures to treasure for a lifetime!

Charlotte Cake Smash | London, Ontario

Miss Charlotte was all smiles when we started the shoot but little did we know she did not like cake! lol Once the cake came out she looked a little stunned and then had a "it's my party and I'll cry if I want to" moment, which was super cute anyways. We were later able to get her to actually taste the cake by using a nutrigrain bar to dip it. Happy Bday Charlotte!

Kaela Maternity Shoot | London, Ontario

Kaela & Darryl are awaiting the arrival of Payton in March and wanted to get some beautiful outdoor maternity photos. It was a perfect day and not too too cold! When we weren't getting stuck in branches we were having fun. Payton has already been deemed a Canadiens fan as well by the family as you can tell since the jersey is ready to go!

Couturier Shoot | London, Ontario | Spring Bank Civic Garden Complex

It's hard to believe these photos were shot in mid-December as it still looked fall! The Couturier siblings had asked me to shoot some photos for them as a Christmas gift for their parents. It was still pretty cold but we made it a fun shoot, as you can tell in some of the photos, there was some joking around going on!

Simons Family Fall Shoot | London, Ontario | Springbank Civic Garden Complex

Most of London's trees were bare at this point, but we were lucky enough to capture the gorgeous fall beauty at the Springbank Civic Garden Complex for the Simon's fall shoot. Unfortunately, it was a very cold day! We had to take a few breaks and warm up in the car. Props to the family for toughing it out :) We managed to get some great shots!

De Jonge Fall Family Shoot | London, Ontario

I did this shoot with the De Jonge family in the Rosser's backyard before their Thanksgiving dinner. I was glad we were able to do a fall shoot with this beautiful setting, before the rest of the leaves had fallen off the trees. Part of this shoot was to also celebrate Nate's first birthday. He was given this homemade wagon as a gift, and it was the perfect prop for the shoot!
