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.”

Kawartha Lakes Engagement

“The first week of August hangs at the very top of summer, the top of the live-long year, like the highest seat of a Ferris wheel when it pauses in its turning. The weeks that come before are only a climb from balmy spring, and those that follow a drop to the chill of autumn, but the first week of August is motionless, and hot. It is curiously silent, too, with blank white dawns and glaring noons, and sunsets smeared with too much color.”

 

― Natalie Babbitt, Tuck Everlasting

 

 

I first met Carley a few years ago when I started working at Lululemon. It probably wasn’t until my second year there that we really started to get to know each other. We grew up in the same town, went to the same high school, and both have a passion for food (sidenote: Carley is an incredibly talented chef, check out her business here).

 

Cue Ryan. I don’t think anyone could possibly pick a better partner for Carley. They are both genuine, funny, and warm hearted (perfect combo, right?). There wasn’t a question in my mind when Carley approached me to document their engagement. Without hesitation, we got together a few days later on a perfect day in the middle of August. We spent the time together laughing and exploring different locations near their home in the Kawartha Lakes. Carley and Ryan are the type of couple that trust wholeheartedly and are ready for adventure. They’re my kind of people.
