Specializing in Wedding and Family Photography in Kingston, Ontario and Surrounding Areas
Jessica and Dan’s wedding day was calling for thunderstorms. Jessica and I had emailed earlier in the week to arrange alternative indoor locations, just in case, but it turned out we didn’t need them because their day was perfect! Their ceremony and reception were held at the beautiful Cataraqui Golf and Country Club. Jessica and Dan wrote their own vows to each other that were so touching and even had a few personal jokes thrown in. Jessica was beyond stunning and Dan teared up as soon as he saw her come down the aisle. It’s so clear in their photos how much they love each other. Their guests were treated to games (one where they kissed and then Jessica and Dan had to copy them) and emotional and hilarious speeches at the reception. It was a truly perfect day for this amazing couple. Congratulations to Jessica and Dan and enjoy your sneak peeks as you honeymoon in Europe!!
Erin and Matt are getting married next month!! And we were running out of time to get their engagement shoot done, and get their guestbook printed (something that I include in all of my wedding packages) so I was so excited when they were able to come from Pickering to Kingston last minute for their shoot. We were going to do them at the Barriefield Rock Garden, but I didn’t realize it was under construction. Luckily, I remembered how lovely the trail by the Pittsburgh Library is after a recent family shoot earlier this summer. Erin, Matt and I took a nice walk around the trails, stopping for photos along the way. Matt was nervous, but after a few photos he was able to relax and realize that getting your photo taken isn’t so bad. Erin and Matt are a cute couple. Erin laughs every time Matt looks at her, and Matt adores Erin, you can see it in his eyes. I love doing engagement shoots because I get to know how a couple interacts together and in front of the camera before the wedding day, and I’m glad we were able to figure out our schedules and fit in these beautiful pictures. I can’t wait to shoot their wedding in less than a month from now!! Congratulations to you both, and enjoy your sneak peeks!!
I love a couple that laughs together, especially during their photos. Amanda and Blair are that couple!! They laughed throughout their entire shoot. And I laughed with them. I shot family photos for Amanda, Blair and Theo a couple years ago, and through that meeting we’ve become friends. Amanda was so sweet, she bought me some cheese curd since we were shooting in their home town of Wilton, but the Wilton Cheese Factory was closed. Amanda, Blair, Theo and doggie Minnie are such a wonderful family, I’m so happy for them that they are taking this next step in their lives together. I can’t wait and am so honoured to be shooting their wedding next spring. It’s going to be a blast!! Congratulations to you all and enjoy your sneak peeks!
Meg and Andrew met me at their beautiful family cottage just outside Lyndhurst for their engagement shoot. It’s a gorgeous spot as you can tell from the photos. Meg and Andrew are a sweet couple, super friendly and really easy to work with. We spent the first few minutes just talking and getting to know each other! It was a great shoot and I can’t wait to work with them again later this summer when I shoot their wedding! Congratulations to you both on your engagement and enjoy your sneak peeks!
My good friend Jay, from way back in my Rogers Wireless Express days and his beautiful wife, Brandy, welcomed their first child into their family just 10 days before these photos were taken. Meet Baby Hudson!! He’s such a sweet little guy, and was so good during his modeling debut. He let us move him all around, wrap him up, and even posed with two hats!! What a trooper! I am more than honoured that Jay and Brandy chose me document this most special time in their lives. This little guy makes me miss when my boys were this age. So warm and cuddly, wanting nothing more than love!! And Jay and Brandy have so much to give him, as you can see in their family photos. They adore Hudson and Hudson fits perfectly into his new home. Congratulations to you both and enjoy your sneak peeks!!
Michelle and Adam’s wedding day couldn’t have been more perfect! The ceremony was held at Michelle’s parents’ home in Bath, on a beautiful sunny Saturday afternoon. Their guests watched as Michelle and Adam exchanged vows looking onto the water. While their guests enjoyed yummy appetizers and enjoyed the view, Michelle, Adam and their bridal party went to RMC for some fun photos. It was so windy that Michelle’s veil was blowing in almost every single shot!! They finished their perfect day with a reception at the Holiday Inn. Welcome back from your honeymoon, Michelle and Adam and enjoy your sneak peeks!!
Julia, Brad and I met at a beautiful horse farm just outside the city. Julia boards her horse at this farm, so of course we had to use her majestic horse in their photos. The sun was in and out and it was windy during their shoot, it looked like it could have stormed at any second, but it didn’t damper Julia and Brad’s spirits. We had a great time, walking around the gorgeous farm, and their dog, Harley, even joined them for a few photos. I can’t wait to shoot their wedding later this summer. Congratulations to you both and enjoy your sneak peeks!!
Jenny and Matt were married on the Sunday before Canada Day. Their day was filled with love, their close connection with their family and friends, and their deep devotion to their faith. They started their day with a “First Look” complete with a blind fold! We took some photos before the ceremony, and as well as after, leaving them time in their schedule to re-coop before their amazing first dance that wowed their guests. The reception was complete with touching speeches, fun games like “find the pennies in the stockings” and “stack the chap sticks using chop sticks” and lots of dancing. It was a wonderful day! Congratulations to Jenny and Matt!! Welcome back from your honeymoon and enjoy your sneak peeks!
Lynn and Mack had their Best. Day. Ever. (as they referred to it) at the Sherwood Inn in the Muskokas. It couldn’t have been a more perfect day for them! The gorgeous back drop, no detail overlooked, the amazing bride and groom. Lynn’s Jenny Packham gown was like a piece of jewelry or most like a piece of art, covered in beautiful beads. It was magnificent. And not to be outdone, Mack looked just as amazing. I’m a sucker for bridesmaids dresses in different colours rather than the traditional single colour for each girl. Lynn’s girls dresses were perfection. The love between Lynn and Mack, and their families and friends was the theme of the day. It was clear by all the time and effort that went into every single detail of their wedding. When I was getting this blog post ready, I originally picked over 200 photos to share with everyone, and I had the hardest time narrowing it down, and even still I only got it down to just under a 100. It was an unbelievable day and I’m more than honoured that I was chosen to be part of it. Lynn and Mack, congratulations on your amazing day, and I hope you’re enjoying your honeymoon! Enjoy your sneak peeks!!
I joined Erin and Marquis on Howe Island for their engagement shoot. It was a beautiful evening, and Erin and Marquis are a wonderful couple. We walked around Erin’s parents home and took in all the gorgeous sites. Erin and Marquis are a quiet couple, and they are so sweet. Marquis told me that he was a little nervous about having his photo taken, but I think he did a great job and I don’t think you can see his nerves at all. I can’t wait to shoot their wedding later this summer! Enjoy your sneak peeks!!
