Jill & Kyle - Proposal/Engagement Kitchener

While the outdoor shoots make for some of the best and most beautiful photos, it can be tricky to work around mother nature. I was so excited to spend this day with Jill and Kyle but it was calling for rain all day. Kyle and I were continuously checking the radar, trying to decide whether to reschedule or brave it out. My entire travels from Mississauga to Kitchener it down poured, but I’m so glad we stuck it out because as soon as I got off the highway- the rain stopped and held off for our entire session at the beautiful Doon Mill ruins.

When I got the opportunity to photograph Kyle getting down on one knee last fall (You’ll see these in the first few photos below) I was immediately counting down the days until this engagement shoot and their wedding next summer. These two beautiful people are just so sweet together and so fun to watch! They compliment each other so well. Their easy going and fun loving nature made for some goofy moments and the most incredible candids!

Thank you both for being so great and so easy to work with! I can’t wait to photograph your wedding next summer and capture some more beautiful moments

Jared & Dilara - Waterloo University Winter Engagement

Jared & Delira's romantic University Engagement shoot was taken at the University of Waterloo where they first met. I had such a wonderful time shooting them on campus and across the street at Waterloo Park. They showed me what they do on the daily and I couldn't have had more fun capturing the sweet moments between these two.

We took full advantage of all the beautiful architecture on site; especially at the Quantum Nano Center. It was my first time shooting in a lab, and I must admit it was pretty cool and made for some beautiful photographs. Thank you both for choosing me to capture these memories for you! Cannot wait to work with you two again for your wedding in June!

Lindsay & Cody - Guelph Arboretum Engagement

I’m not sure whether it’s gold in the trees or maybe the couple wrapped up in a blanket, but there’s something about fall engagement shoots that radiate a warm feeling. When the colours and the light and the love all come together in the most perfect way, it’s hard not to be excited about what I was able to capture for the couple.

Of course it didn’t hurt that I shot with Lindsay and Cody on one of the best fall days in 2016 at The Guelph Arboretum. I’ve known Lindsay for almost a decade, and her kindness and sweet demeanour have never wavered. Maybe I’m biased because I’m a chihuahua-mom myself, but their little dog was the cutest and added SO much to the shoot. Having fur babies along for engagement sessions make things so much more personal, and take the emotion up a level or two.

I can’t wait to shoot their wedding this year! Here are some of my favourites from their October session.

Lauren & Dave - Kitchener Engagement

The last few months leading up to Christmas wound up being the busiest time of the year for me, so I’m happy to finally sit back and reminisce about all of the wonderful couples I had the pleasure of working with recently.

Lauren and Dave’s love for one another was blatantly obvious when I first met them at a wedding that I shot last year. Shooting their engagement photos at such an authentic location just fit so perfectly with their personalities, I couldn’t imagine a better setting.

On a September day, we had the most ideal lighting. At an abandoned barn on the outskirts of Kitchener, all of the rustic wood and overgrown greenery made for the most romantic backdrop. It created a sense of privacy that adds to the photos immensely.

The emotion you see between the two of them was so real and so natural, it made it incredibly easy to photograph them. I always feel so privileged to spend time capturing the love and light that a couple like Lauren and Dave seem to radiate. I can’t wait to share in the excitement of their wedding day later this year!

Gaby & Brandon - Waterloo Engagement

Warning: the images you are about to see are so sweet and full of love that they may cause intense side effects such as uncontrollable smiling, continuous “aw-ing”, and wanting to run out and adopt a dog. I’m speaking from experience…

Gaby, Brandon and I met up for their engagement shoot in Waterloo, close to Grey Silo golf course. The open fields and rustic barn board acted as the perfect backdrop. Even the green grass played it’s roll wonderfully, and the couple didn’t miss a beat when it came to laying in the thick of it!

They both were so fun-loving and excited to experience this together that every pose came naturally to them, and their happiness was so easily captured. Gaby’s vibrant hair colour was the perfect reflection of her personality and I absolutely loved it. And don’t get me started on their pup, Quinn! Such an adorable dog - it’s like they had their entire world in between them for those shots.

Their wedding is going to be so much fun next year, but in the meantime let me stop gushing about these photos and you can take a look for yourself!

Jen & Jamie - Rockwood Engagement

Nothing feels better than taking chances and having it pay off, and that’s exactly what happened on the day of Jen and Jamie’s engagement shoot at Rockwood. All signs were pointing to a big storm, but we took a leap of faith and headed to this gorgeous location anyhow. We lucked out and not only did the storm pass us, but the clouds that were left in it’s wake allowed for beautiful soft lighting.

When we made our way into the caves it gave us the chance to play with flash, rather than just making use of the natural light. I’m always looking for unique elements to add to my photos, and I think this setting did just that.

Jamie and I have been friends since high school, so when he asked me to shoot his wedding I said yes without missing a beat. I imagine this engagement session was just a hint of how fun their wedding is going to be next May.

Take a look at some of the breathtaking images we caught!

Amy and Geoff's engagement session was on a beautiful evening in June. Baden and New Hamburg have great backdrops for photos, from old buildings to beautiful greenery and a quaint little waterfall. I shared so many laugh's with this couple, every smile was genuine. And I'm moved by the sincerity of their love for one another. :)

Here are some of my favorite images from their shoot. Can't wait for your wedding in August, Amy and Geoff!
