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

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

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!

Laura & Justin - London Engagement

Laura & Justin - London Engagement

It’s always great when a couple takes me to a location that they’re familiar with. They’ve already got certain spots in their mind, places that they’ve envisioned as their backdrop for quite some time. That was the case during Laura and Justin’s engagement shoot. Laura frequently runs along the Mill Pond near London, so she knew how perfect the setting would be. With a bit of walking and exploring, Mill Pond did not fail to impress.

With the light peeking through the trees, and the simple flowers that surrounded us, it all fit so well with how effortlessly their love translated on camera. Not one smile was unwarranted with these two - their love, their laughter, their overall happiness was the most natural of everything I captured during this session. Things run so smoothly when a couple is so comfortable with each other, even when a camera is present.

I can’t even imagine the photos that we’ll get during their wedding in Mexico next year. With such a beautiful and fun couple, it’s no wonder that my excitement level is through the roof!

Here are a few shots that stood out as my favourites this time around :)

Darcy & Mike - Woodstock Engagement Session

Darcy & Mike - Woodstock Engagement Session

I’ve known Darcy since high school, so when she asked me to do an engagement shoot with her and Mike, I was thrilled! It’s hard to remember what Darcy was like before I saw her with her fiancé, because they just seemed to be made perfectly for one another. These two were absolute naturals in front of the camera. When a couple shares so much love for each other, every pose is so heartfelt and real.

We were so lucky to be able to make use of their friends farm, everywhere we looked was a beautiful backdrop. From the barn to the cornfield, the private pond to the colourful forest - this location did not fail to impress! Even the birch trees added their own unique element. Working in such secluded areas as this really helps to make the shoot feel more intimate and special. Despite the cool weather on Halloween day, we managed to avoid any rain during the shoot.

I love the sense of coziness that this season can bring to photos, and this engagement session was no exception. It was a blast working with this amazing couple and I hope you enjoy their photos as much as I enjoyed taking them!

Alex & Corey - Rockwood Engagement

An engagement shoot like Alex and Corey's is a dream come true for a photographer. On a warm fall day we had the privilege of exploring the trails and caves throughout Rockwood. At what seems to be the perfect time of year, the unique scenery and colors surrounding the couple were incredibly stunning. Having their dog Leo, dressed to the nines in his bow tie, really brought it all together. You can see how important his presence is, not only in their photos, but in their family. It is impossible to ignore the love that all three of them have for one another, and their happiness is simply contagious. To say that I'm excited to photograph their wedding in September of next year, would be an understatement. Take a peek at some of the shots that stood out to me, and see for yourself how well Alex and Corey's love translates in photographs.

Candice & Jarrod - Kitchener Engagement Session

You can seriously see the love between these two! When I had met Candice & Jarrod at our shoot this past Sunday, we immediately clicked which resulted in some awesome photos of them having fun and being themselves. They are such a down to earth couple and they were adventurous enough to get into the water for me, which of course made for some beautiful scenic shots. Thank you both for choosing me to capture these memories for you, I cant wait for your wedding in September! Here are my favorite's from this shoot (it was really hard to narrow it down!).

Alexis & Mike - Waterloo International Airport Engagement

Alexis & Mike - Waterloo International Airport Engagement

Mike is a Pilot for Air Canada and on September 6th, 2013 he took Alexis in a Cessna 172 plane to Toronto and proposed while they flew around the CN tower. The plane they were engaged on was also part of their engagement photos.. How cute! When they had told me their idea to go to the airport to take their engagement photos I was already so thrilled, but to be able to walk around the hangers and photograph in and around planes is an amazing experience! These photos seem to remind me of movie scenes. You can really see the love that these two share, I absolutely adore them. Thank you so much Alexis & Mike for giving me this opportunity (and allowing me to sit in a plane!). I had a blast shooting your engagement photos a few weeks ago and had an amazing time shooting your wedding this past weekend. Wedding photos to be posted in the next couple of weeks, for now here are my favorites from this unique engagement session.
