Specializing in Wedding and Family Photography in Kingston, Ontario and Surrounding Areas
Years ago, I shot Tasha and Mark’s wedding, it was the first wedding I’d ever shot, and then just 18 months ago, I shot Tasha, Mark and their new little baby, Mason, and now I’m shooting them again. I visited the Moriarty’s at their beautiful home in the country and I couldn’t believe how big Mason had gotten! He’s a little man that know what he wants and when he wants it. He loves to be thrown in the air by his Daddy and kisses from his Mommy. And who knew that the word “IPad” could make a one year old smile… but in Mason’s case it was the word that brought out his big beautiful smile! It’s an honour to have yet another milestone trusted to me and my camera. Thank you Moriarty’s and enjoy your sneak peeks!
Bayley and Jeff are busy planning their New Years Eve wedding from a far, as they don’t live in Kingston, so it was great to meet up with them on a recent Sunday afternoon for their engagement shoot. Bayley attended Queen’s, so it was fitting that they’d have their photos taken there, even though Bayley didn’t want it to look “too much” like Queen’s. It’s hard to imagine a more beautiful spot in the city, during the Fall. The combination of the gorgeous colours, changing leaves and historical buildings makes Queen’s the perfect backdrop for any photos. Bayley and Jeff are a really fun couple, laughing a lot, making tons of jokes and really enjoy being together. They’re very relaxed and easy going, and I can’t wait to ring the New Year in them in just a few shorts months. Congratulations to both and enjoy your sneak peeks!!
Alysha and Chris are a really sweet couple. They’re so much fun and easy going, and obviously smitten with each other. We took a lovely walk around Lemoine’s Point, and enjoyed one of our last really warm days of the fall. They were tons of fun to work with and I hope I get to do it again someday!! Enjoy your sneak peeks!!
I met Sara and Dan in Jones Falls on a beautiful evening in late September. Sara and Dan have grown up around the Falls, and are experts on this historical site. As we strolled around looking for the perfect photo spots they told me about how the locks were built and other interesting facts. It’s a gorgeous location and on this night, the water was so still it looked like a mirror reflecting the beautiful fall colours. Their husky Roxy even joined in for some of the photos. It was a fun and informative shoot! I can’t wait to shoot Sara and Dan’s wedding next summer. Congratulations to you both and enjoy your sneak peeks!
Amber and Cory are getting married in just 4 days from now, 5 days from the day these photos were taken! They are getting married here in Kingston, but are from Alberta, so we were unable to meet in person, or do the all important engagement session until they came to town for their wedding. I’m so happy that we were able to come together before the wedding, and I was able to meet this cute couple! Amber and Cory and tons of fun, and are totally smitten with each other. We took a stroll around the beautiful downtown Kingston area and they were able to relax and enjoy just being together, before all the craziness that the next few days will surely bring. Congratulations to you both, Amber and Cory, and enjoy your sneak peeks!! Can’t wait to see you in a few short days for your big day!!
Carrie and Duncan are a quiet couple, that love to laugh together. You can see in their photos how much they love each other and how much fun they have just being together. Carrie was stunning in her red dress and the light was perfect, it was a great shoot! Queen’s is one of my favourite locations in Kingston to shoot, and we couldn’t have asked for a nicer evening to explore the campus. Congratulations to Carrie and Duncan on your engagement (in Paris!) and enjoy your sneak peeks!!
Sarah is a beautiful little girl who has just turned one! It’s the perfect milestone to document with some family photos. She was so good during our shoot, even though it was right in the middle of her nap time. She’s a sweet, happy girl that loves the camera. It’s obvious in these photos that her Mommy and Daddy, Kim and Shawn adore this little and recognize the amazing gift that she is to their family. It was a pleasure to work with them all and I can’t wait to do it again! Enjoy your sneak peeks, Kim and Shawn!!
Carrie and Jose’s wedding day was a windy one, but it was still perfect in so many ways. Carrie was one of the most relaxed brides I’ve photographed. Being a wedding photographer herself, I think she knows better than most how fast the day would fly by and what was important and that in the end, everything always works out. Not only was Carrie on the most relaxed brides that I’ve seen, Jose was one of the happiest grooms I’ve come across in a long time. They had a beautiful ceremony that began with Carrie’s close friends’ daughter, Mattie singing as Carrie walked down aisle, followed by amazing photos in hurricane-like winds, which actually worked out really well with Carrie’s gorgeous cathedral length veil. Before their reception, Carrie and Jose greeted all of their guests and even shared a shot with them. Well, Carrie and Jose toasted with water while their guests enjoyed something a little stronger. They started their reception off with a magical first dance with dry ice that made it look like they were dancing on a cloud. After dinner Carrie and Jose danced the night away, and had a great party with all of their guests. Congratulations again, Carrie and Jose, welcome back from you honeymoon and enjoy your sneak peeks!
Valene and Brent are a really great couple. Brent isn’t really a smiley guy, even his mother said he wasn’t a funny kid during her speech at their wedding, but when Brent looks at Valene he smiles, and that’s how I know how much he loves her. Their special day was windy, cold and had sideways rain (my least favourite kind of rain) but right when we were about to go out to take photos, it stopped raining, just enough to get some photos without getting wet. We went to the location of the very first wedding that I ever shot (which was also a rainy day except that it didn’t let up for photos) the courthouse in Kingston, and were able to stay dry enough to get some great shots. You can see the rain in the background of the some of the photos, but at the least the bride and groom were dry! After photos, Valene and Brent’s guests enjoyed touching speeches and a very funny daughter/father dance by Valane and Gary during their reception. It was a perfect day and I’m honoured that I was chosen to be part of it. Congratulations again Valene and Brent and enjoy your sneak peeks!!

Meg and Andrew’s special day was held at one of my favourite venues ever! Fields on West Lake was the site for the ceremony and reception, but Meg and Andrew started their day at Huff Estates with a “First Look”. I LOVE when couples do a “First Look” because they get to share a private moment together before the ceremony. After photos, it was off to Fields on West Lake where their friend Travis performed their wedding ceremony that was so touching, with personalized vows and a special ring ceremony where the parents and the wedding party held the rings in their hands and blessed them before Meg and Andrew slipped them on each other fingers. The reception was filled with touching and funny speeches and Meg’s childhood blanket even made an appearance. It was a wonderful day and I couldn’t have been more pleased to be part of it! Congratulations to Meg and Andrew and enjoy your sneak peeks!
