Peterborough Engagement Session

At the beginning of February I received a phone call from Marlena, who just happened to find me at random on google. It didn’t take long for us to realize we had a ton in common (vegetarian, love cats, love creating, etc…) and find a deep connection. Once I met Matt, it was so clear that working together was meant to be.

 

Marlena is a creative, kindhearted soul and a recent graduate of Library Science. Matt is well on his way to becoming a nurse and has an enthusiastic personality that could brighten anyone’s day. Together, they are the most fun-loving, caring, down-to-earth couple I have ever met. They don’t know this yet, but we are going to be friends for life.

 

Here are a few images from their engagement session near their home in Peterborough, Ontario. I can’t wait to document their wedding tomorrow at the Canadian Canoe Museum. An early congratulations to you both! xx

Brenna and Brad

We spent the afternoon laughing over their sweet (and funny) engagement story, explored the neighbour’s backyard, and finished the shoot with a Rummy 500 lesson and a glass of wine. A perfectly relaxed engagement session. Maybe it was the spiked hot chocolate, but let’s get real. Brenna and Brad are a dream to work with.

 

I am so excited to celebrate with them this August in Creemore, Ontario! Here are some of my favourite images from their winter engagement session. Enjoy!

Melissa and Greg- Lakefield, Ontario

I can’t possibly put into words how wonderful it was to spend the afternoon with Melissa and Greg. They gave me such a warm welcome and made me feel completely at home. They are living the dream: cottage life. I recently asked Melissa to tell me more about their home. This is what she had to say:

 

“For us, living here is literally a dream come true. ‘The Nook’ is absolutely everything we ever asked for; from the big ol’ barn surrounded by even older trees to living on the lake (!!!) and having the freedom to hop in the canoe from our front door. Gratitude is a major part of every single day.

 

We’ve both always dreamed of creating a retreat; a place to reconnect to nature, a place to practice yoga, go for a paddle and hang out under the stars. And this place, our darling little piece of paradise, is where it’s coming to life!

 

Since moving to the country, we’ve definitely slowed things down and have (happily) adopted the pace of nature. From chopping wood to listening to the birds, we really appreciate the little things and know that this is where we’re supposed to be.”

DIY Barn Wedding

So much excitement and love was poured into this DIY wedding- and it was perfect. Kim and Randy were married at their local church and had their reception at Kim’s dad’s home in Little Britain, Ontario. I was lucky enough to see the wedding venue before it was finished and know firsthand how much work went into the final product. Kim’s dad went above and beyond with getting his property ready for this wedding. Really, not a single detail was missed. A friend, who used to be a florist, made the bouquets and the bride’s gorgeous flower crown. Everyone came together to make this wedding beautiful.

 

Kim and Randy are so full of life and joy. Every moment of their wedding day was a reflection of who they are as a couple and it was an honour to be a part of it. Thank you for inviting me to document your love. Congrats, again! xo
