After Shoot Water Series, Kawarthas // Catherine + Vince

I really enjoy having after sessions with my clients. It allows them to slow down, relax and take it all in. The wedding jitters are gone and they can get a little more adventurous in their surroundings. Don’t get me wrong, I love adventure on a wedding day, but for those couples having a more traditional wedding, an after session can be a really fun thing.

Catherine and Vince had a beautiful wedding, but they also wanted to get some photos of them enjoying some of their favourite spots, in the Kawarthas. Our first stop was a small chapel that held a special place in Catherine’s heart. The chapel held a stained glass window, in memory of her late Grandfather. It was very special.

We followed the road to a quaint winery, where they sipped some wine and we wandered the property. I highly recommend it. =)

The day ended with a visit to Catherine’s families cottage, on Mississauga lake. Catherine and Vince entered the water and everything became magic. The way they held eachother and melted into eachothers arms was really beautiful to watch. There’s something about the layers of a white dress, under water. It has this very mysterious feeling to it. It really can’t be put into words. I want to shoot in water everyday….seriously it was the best.

Pickering Lifestyle Maternity Shoot // Lesley + Jason

I love it when friends ask me to do their portraits. They feel more comfortable in front of the camera and we talk like I’m not really there. ;) I’ve known Jason and Lesley for years and when they asked me to photograph their baby bump, I couldn’t be more excited. Lesley and Jason are going to be awesome parents. They are some of the sweetest people I know and not so bad looking, eh? lol

Their little guy is due soon and I can’t wait to capture some more images with them and snuggle that little guy. Congrats Lesley and Jason, you’ve got this! xo

St.Isaac Jogues Church Wedding // Catherine + Vince ♥

I had the pleasure of working with Catherine + Vince on their wedding day. They are some of the sweetest people that I’ve ever met before! From day one, we connected and I’m so glad to call them my friends.

Catherine and Vince went to the same highschool and officially met at a friends house in 2008, but it wasn’t until a Jack and Jill in 2009, that the two of them connected again. Catherine remembers that Vince took her out on an awkward date with his family, for his dads birthday. In the new year of 2010, they were officially dating and you can call the rest history!

The ceremony was held at St.Isaac Jogues, surrounded by family and friends. When Catherine appeared in the aisle, with her parents on either arm, Vince teared up. It was touching and I will admit I teared up behind the camera. His smile was wide and loving and you could see how excited they were to finally embrace each other.

Their portraits were taken at Petticoat Creek. The trees and the bridge overlooking Lake Ontario, felt perfect for some quiet reflection and more intimate photos.  As soon as we finished their pictures and got in our cars, it started to pour! Talk about perfect timing!

The evening concluded with a huge reception at The Estate Banquet and Event Centre, in Toronto, where Catherine and her father, surprised guests with a choreographed dance. Friends and family sang, danced and celebrated.

Congrats Catherine and Vince and thank you for letting me capture that beautiful day. xo

A huge thank you to my second shooter Jeannette Breward, for assisting me on that hot day! xo

Bluffers Park Engagement Session // Diana + Chris ♥

They met in high school, when Diana drove to school in her mom’s Suburban. The car was on it’s last legs and started to smoke in the school parking lot. Chris saw the smoking car and walked over to check it out. He told Diana to bring the car over to the school shop and he would see if he could fix it. Nothing more became of this encounter, until years later, when Diana saw Chris at a friends house party. She recognized him as the guy that helped her with her mom’s smoking car and that’s what sparked up their conversation. She admitted that she wouldn’t have approached him, had she not recognized him. That night, she drove some friends home, as well as Chris. Her best friend and her boyfriend, told Chris he should ask Diana out, because they were both short! So he did! Chris asked Diana out and years later he admits that he saw a pretty girl in trouble. So here they are today, engaged! You could say the smoking Suburban brought them together. I suggested they have it at their wedding….

Diana and Chris met me for their engagement session at Bluffers Park, in Scarborough. We walked around the waterfront and explored the beach. It was great watching these two interact behind the camera. Chris would bring out these little smiles and laughs in Diana. He made her feel at ease and she did the same for him. The way he wrapped his arms around her and she cuddled in, was so natural and adoring. I love it when couples let go and be themselves, you really get to see the beauty and love that makes them work.

I feel grateful that I was able to capture these special moments. This is why I love what I do. Congrats Diana and Chris!

Maclaren Art Centre Barrie Wedding // Alisha + Noah ♥

I felt especially grateful when my friends, Alisha and Noah, asked me to photograph their wedding day. I’ve known Alisha and Noah for years and I can honestly say that these two make an awesome pair. They are easy-going, outgoing, down to earth, friendly, hilarious and most importantly, totally in love. Anyone who knows them, knows that they laugh often and their dimples are adorable.

It called for rain and a lot of it, on the wedding day. I came prepared with umbrellas, boots and towels, but we totally lucked out and the rain didn’t come until after the ceremony. The ceremony was beautiful. Alisha aka “creative lady,” because I hate the word crafty, designed every aspect of the day. From the wagon strewn with flowers, that carried their little girl down the aisle, to the place cards made from logs. Nothing was overlooked and all the details were appreciated.

The first look was in-front of an old door, at the MacLaren Art Centre. Noah waited for Alisha and as she approached, she wrapped her arms around him. It was pure magic when Noah held Alisha’s arms and kissed her hand. A beautiful moment, that I’m so happy was caught.

They were so impressed with each other, that they both did a little twirl. Their sense of humour, is only a fraction of what makes these two hearts beat as one. Congratulations Alisha and Noah!

Maternity + Newborn Shoot // Baby Logan

Maternity-Shoot-Brooklin-Whitby-2Maternity-Shoot-Brooklin-Whitby-3 One of the many reasons I love shooting a maternity to newborn session, is to see the change in a growing family. I love capturing the excitement for the arrival of a new baby and the beauty of pregnancy. Not all women feel their best when they are pregnant, heck not many of us do! But I can’t tell you how important it is to capture those moments. I guarantee you will be happy you did. Maternity-Shoot-Brooklin-Whitby-5

They had beautiful natural light streaming through their bedroom (which I love). Photographing families in their home can be so much fun. Not only is it different from the studio shots, but you get to see people in their natural element. This is often best when photographing children. They feel more comfortable, they can be themselves and they have all their toys at home! =) Makes a huge difference. Don’t get me wrong, the studio shots are great, but I love at home shots the most!Newborn-shoot-Brooklin-Whitby-69Newborn-shoot-Brooklin-Whitby-78Newborn-shoot-Brooklin-Whitby-82This is one of my favourite shots of the new baby, Logan! He had a head full of dark, fuzzy hair! Soooo cute! He kept giving me those little looks, what a little heartbreaker. Avery, the eldest was so sweet with Logan. Like always, she worked the camera! ;) Thanks for inviting me into your home, to capture these beautiful memories of your family. xoNewborn-shoot-Brooklin-Whitby-97Newborn-shoot-Brooklin-Whitby-101

Skyloft Wedding // Brooke + Chris ♥

They say rain on your wedding day is good luck, but this couple needed no extra luck. When Brooke and Chris asked me to shoot their wedding, I knew I was in for a treat. I’ve known Brooke since high school and she was always an easy-going, loving and caring person. I also had the pleasure of shooting their son, Bentleys newborn pics, so I knew exactly how cool this couple was.

The day didn’t start with sunshine, birds chirping and bright fall leaves, like most fall brides dream of, but that didn’t bother Brooke and Chris. When I arrived at Brooke and Chris’ house the morning of the wedding, Brooke was upstairs getting little Benny ready for the big day. She was so calm and just excited to be marrying the man she loved. The weather didn’t even phase her. Brooke was more concerned with me having fun! Great client, eh?

When we arrived at Skyloft for the wedding, the staff was ready with massive umbrellas helping guests from their cars. Skyloft made the transition from a beautiful outdoor wedding, to a beautiful indoor wedding seamless! They were so helpful and kind and I couldn’t recommend them enough.

After the ceremony the rain stopped for a few minutes and we were able to get a few portraits and a group shot, just before it started to pour again. Everyone ran back inside to the party and the night went off without a hitch.

The wedding was filled with laughter, happiness and most of all love. I couldn’t be happier for Brooke, Chris and their perfect little guy Benny. They have all the sunshine they need.

Georgian Bay Lakeside Wedding // Katie + Chris ♥

I had the pleasure of shooting my friends Katie and Chris’ wedding a few weeks ago. The ceremony took place on the picturesque beaches of Georgian Bay, with the mountains and lake as our backdrop. The wedding came to be with only a few months of planning! Katie and Chris used their mad talent to design their own unique stationery and personalized every little bit of the wedding. You know I love good branding! With the love, help and generosity from friends and family, the Sweatman wedding was a perfect day.

Katie and Chris were so very fortunate to have friends offer their cottage, to host the event. And a lovely cottage it was! The location was the perfect spot for two very outdoorsy people, who met on the hills of Georgian Peaks (the very hills that were our backdrop). The wedding was simply elegant, natural, serene, beachy and most importantly full of love! Did I mention laughter? I don’t think I have ever met two more hilarious people than Katie and Chris. You can tell from the photos that their amazing personalities shine right through.

Thank you so much Katie and Chris for letting me photograph your special day and making me laugh and cry.

The Manor Wedding // Margaret + David ♥

I’ve known Margaret and David for years. Margaret, my sisters best friend, asked me about shooting her wedding over a year ago. I was so excited to be apart of their big day. I’ve had the pleasure of watching Margaret grow up with my sister and I’ve also seen her and David’s relationship grow from high school sweethearts into a happily married couple.

We had a great time on their engagement shoot last summer and I knew their wedding would be just as fun. Margaret and David are a very sweet and loving couple and it showed on their wedding day. I was able to capture their love and I’m ashamed to admit how many times I teared up at the wedding. It was a beautiful Italian wedding filled with family, friends, two little nonnas that made my heart melt and the sweetest little ring bearers!

Thank you Margaret and David for allowing me to capture this beautiful day. The Manor was the perfect place to host your wedding, surrounded by nature, a pond and two lovely swans.

Baby Dylan’s Newborn Photoshoot

I have so much love for this adorable family. Rachel and Daniela have been coming to me for their family photos, for the past few years and I love getting to watch their little one Carter grow up. He’s such a handsome little guy and now they have a lovely little girl!

Dylan was such a sweetheart! Another six pounder and totally alert. She started to nod off towards the end of her shoot. She had the cutest little wrinkles in her forehead and her eyes were so pretty, just like Carters.

Congrats Daniela and Rachel, can’t wait to watch your new addition grow up!
