Jaime & Mark ~ Beach Engagement Session

I had such a nice time getting to know Jaime & Mark better this week. This gorgeous couple will be tying the know in November and I already know it’s going to be one epic party.  I’ve been so honoured to photograph friends of Jaime’s at their wedding a little more than a year ago, and am so excited to see some of my favourite people again at the wedding in November at the Grand Olympia.

Mark and Jaime are a super sweet couple that are very natural together, and exceedingly happy you may notice. The two of them love coming down to Port Dover and figured this was a great spot for them to have their engagement photos especially since there is some sentimental value to Port Dover for Jaime. She used to spend oodles of time here at her family trailer in the summers, her grandfather lived here, and she was even christened at one of the churches here in Port Dover. Seemed like a perfect place for some photos that will signify the beginning of this new phase in her and Mark’s life :).

Here is peek into their evening, waterfall, waterfront, beach, sunset, carousel engagement session! What a variety we can find in this wee little town!

Allison & Tyler ~ Port Dover Engagement Session ~ August 25, 2014

I’m getting so excited about the 2015 wedding season as I’ve been photographing these gorgeous couples over the past weeks and many of them are getting married next summer.

Allison & Tyler came to Port Dover yesterday evening for their engagement session. We flocked through the weeds and I had my first encounter with stinging nettle! I’ve never heard of the weed, but luckily Tyler is familiar with his plants being a farmer and was quickly able to identify the weed! I love that Tyler and Allison didn’t hesitate to jump into the weeds right behind me to get some great shots. We had such beautiful light in the evening and with Tyler and Allison being so fun together it was certainly a great shoot for me!

Here’s a peek into their engagement session!

Ria & John ~ Port Dover Engagment Session

I met with John & Ria this past Sunday to take some photos to celebrate their engagement to each other. We had such a nice time wondering the streets of Port Dover for this session! Ria & John gave me the heads up that they wanted to bring along their little one (their puppy) for a few photos, so we started off with these and quickly rolled into some photos of just the two of them. Ria sported the cutest little cream dress, which I loved! After a few photos they made a quick outfit jeans and showed off their outdoorsy side with their fishing rods and their camouflage t-shirts. I love the John even spent some time making a personalized sign for them to use in a couple photos sating “The hunt is over.” The sign seemed to be the perfect add on for their second outfit:)

It was a beautiful evening with gorgeous soft light and a sweet couple that are crazy for each other! Could my job be any sweeter!?!

Here is a peek into John & Ria’s engagement session:)

Elyse & Nick ~ August 16, 2015 ~ Sheraton Hamilton Wedding

We had such a great day photographing Elyse & Nick’s wedding this past Saturday in Hamilton. The day seemed to fly by and before I knew it we were exchanging hugs and on our way home for the night.

We met Nick and his groomsmen early in the day and almost let the two puppies get away. These dogs were nuts over each other and I still chuckle thinking about them wrestling around in the morning. It wasn’t long before we went to Elyse’s parents home in Ancaster and met the lovely ladies and a houseful of family.

After the ceremony was complete we took a few photos at the church and then made our way to the Hamilton Steam and Technology Museum to take a few photos. We seemed to be able to dodge the rain for the most part with just a few sprinkles making a presence for a few minutes when we arrived. Then with skies all clearing up we made a quick stop at Gage Park and then back to the Sheraton Hamilton for a gorgeous evening filled with celebration, delicious food, friends and family.

Elyse & Nick, it’s been such a pleasure getting to know you both over the past year. Your wedding was stunning! I’m so honored to have been a part of it. Thank you for being so awesome to work with and making the day so much fun!IMG_4798IMG_5028-2IMG_5182-2IMG_5433IMG_5711-2IMG_6011IMG_6029-2IMG_6058-3IMG_6063IMG_6069-2IMG_6097-2IMG_6143IMG_6160IMG_6400-2IMG_6541-2

Chantal & Jacob ~ Port Dover Engagement Session ~ August 15, 2014

Jake and Chantal met not long after Jake bought a cottage next to Chantal’s parent’s home in Port Dover. He knew that his neighbours had daughters, but never ran into them until one day he spotted Chantal sitting on the patio. It wouldn’t take long before the two of them would start spending more time together and then fall in love.

I love that Chantal and Jake decided to take their engagement photos in their backyard. We don’t always need to go to a multitude of locations to get a good variety of photo backdrops and areas. This is the perfect example of how one location can give lots of options. Their backyard is on the lake and the evening brought us a beautiful evening with awesome light. It was so much fun to shoot there!

Chantal and Jake will be married this December in Niagara On The Lake. I know it’s going to be an absolutely beautiful wedding… can barely wait! I’m so excited to share their engagement photos now and eagerly anticipate our next photo session:)
