Petra & Alex ~ July 19, 2014

It’s a love story that ignited almost 6 years ago… I guess you could call Petra & Alex college sweethearts as this is where it all started. The two of them just clicked… they had things in common, like being enrolled in the same program at college. Petra made mention that it was really like love at first sight for her… she fell madly in love with Alex early on and knew that this one was THE one.

Petra and Alex envisioned an enchanting wedding day filled with romance, love and tons of fun memories. I’d say they achieved this and then some :). I love that when asked for a word to describe them as a couple they answered ‘wholesome’. Does it get any better than that!?! Petra and Alex are a adoring couple that are easily adored by others. It was only moments into our first meeting that I became smitten with them. They’re loving, kind, and genuine. They make you feel that you have known them much longer than you have. They are pure goodness:)

Petra & Alex, I hope you are enjoying this downtime after your beautiful wedding day! We had so much fun working with you and your incredible families! I love how much fun you were all having together as we left the reception on Saturday night. I am so grateful that you chose me to capture this day for you! Thanks you so much for this sweet opportunity and for letting me step into your loving and kind world over the past year or so. Enjoy this peek and we’ll be in touch soon!S0208-2S0382S0547-2S0859S1001-2S1425S1496S1686S1916-2S2305-2S2754-2

Kimberlee & Averaam ~ Cayuga Engagement Session ~ July 18, 2014

Is it crazy to admit that sometimes I wonder how I keep getting so lucky to work with the most amazing people, and to love every minute of what I do? I feel so very blessed for the amazing connections that I have made through my work as a Photographer. One of the most amazing parts of my job is when I get to work with a family on multiple occasions through family weddings. I’m so honoured that Kimberlee & Averaam contacted me about photographing their wedding and engagement. I had the opportunity to work with Averaam more briefly at his sister, Thea’s, wedding a couple years ago now. This family is so kind and thoughtful and it’s exciting to know I’ll be working with them again in June 2015!

Averaam & Kimberlee were excited to take their engagement photos on Averaam’s parents property just on the outskirts of Cayuga. I think I may have been more excited though LOL! I’ve seen this property and knew I was in for a treat to photograph there again. There is beauty everywhere there… endless fields of wildflowers, well groomed paths through the woodsy trails, a long gravel road, and a hay field that just happened to be cut down and rolled the day of our shoot (hit the jackpot there!). To no surprise, working with Kimberlee & Averaam was a pleasure. This loving couple just has such genuine emotion in their looks to each other, their interactions, their cute gestures, and they really seem to have so much fun with each other. Averaam literally jumped up on one the huge rolls of hay, then later suggested photos on the trampoline… LOVE!!

Had such a great time Friday evening! Thanks so much guys and can’t wait to be out at the property again in June next year for the wedding:)

Sam & Kyle ~ Waterford Engagement & Family Session

We are just about 2 weeks from Sam & Kyle’s wedding day and we decided (somewhat at the last minute) to go ahead with an engagement session in Waterford. It’s their home town and it just seems to be a good fit for this session. We also wanted to spin it into a little family session as well with their two adorable little girls, Jorga & Gracie. It’s been a while since I photographed a family as I’ve been focusing mainly on weddings & engagements these days, but I have to admit that I do mist the fun and shenanigans that little ones bring to a photo session. Their energy and giggling, their ability to run, and play and make the best of the simplest situations… it’s sweet and adorable – and exhausting as well haha!

I’m really looking forward to Sam & Kyle’s wedding this August! Can’t wait to run into some familiar faces again and spend the day celebrating with this adorable, fun-loving family. Here are a few from our Waterford Engagement & Family Session this week!

Sofia & Danny ~ Port Dover Engagement Session

What a great evening I had with Danny & Sofia shooting their Port Dover Engagement Session! These are two of the kindest people I’ve met to date. I couldn’t take a step without an offer to help carry my equipment, or being offered a cold water out of the cooler Danny packed for he session. Seriously, I felt spoiled! Sofia, if Danny is this thoughtful every day let me just assure you that you are one lucky gal, but I’m sure you already realize that :).

Danny & Sofia made the drive down from Hamilton to take their engagement photos in Port Dover. They loved the variety and beauty that can be found right here in Dover and I can’t argue on this honestly. I love my little town and all the beauty we have right here.

The story of Sofia & Danny is so flipping’ sweet. When Sofia’s family come to live in Hamilton after leaving Portugal she was just a wee little one, but she fell in love with the lady across the street from their home and quickly became her little friend. The lady across the street just happens to be Danny’s mother. She took a liking to Sofia as well and often made little comments about how the day would come that Sofia would marry her son. The two thought it was humorous back then, but as time passed by things changed and sure enough Danny and Sofia fell in love. Here are a few of my favourites form their Port Dover Engagement Session this past week.

Jenna & Jeff ~ July 12, 2014 ~ Hamilton Wedding Photographer

It was Jenna’s cousin that introduced Jenna & Jeff to one another… I’m not sure if it was a ‘set-up’, but the two met at a Ti-Cats game and Jenna quickly fell in love with Jeff’s blue eyes… the two of them have been together ever since.

They have this most incredible story of their engagement. Jeff is a romantic, thoughtful guy who thought out the day of the proposal in detail. He left a series of hints through poems. Each clue led to the next, and would eventually lead Jenna right to Jeff in a tuxedo. Jeff got down on his knee and proposed with Jenna’s ring in a Cracker Jack Box :).

Well the wedding day finally came this past weekend. A day Jenna & Jeff have been eagerly anticipating for so long! The excitement within Jenna was adorable the morning of… she just kept saying, “I just want to go see Jeff.”

Jenna & Jeff were married at St. Ann’s Parish in Ancaster, and would then head to Dundurn Castle for some photos. Later we made out way back to the Courtyard by Marriott in Hamilton for a lovely reception full of fun, laughter, dancing, and yummy cupcakes (I may have grabbed one or two on the way out LOL!).

Jenna & Jeff, thank you so much for choosing me to capture your beautiful wedding day.  Here is a little peek at some photos – incase you really do check in from Hawaii :). Enjoy your honeymoon you two lovebirds you:)
