Specializing in Wedding and Family Photography in Kingston, Ontario and Surrounding Areas
Katie and Chris’s engagement shoot is a quintessential look at Kingston and all that this beautiful city has to offer. We started at Queen’s, took a very short trip to the waterfront, and then headed to City Hall and Confederation Basin, followed by a trip to the Chez Piggy alley and finished up with a beer at The Merchant. It was a very cold and windy day, but you’d never be able to tell from the photos because Katie and Chris made the best of it! They are a sweet, loving couple that are full of smiles and laughter. I had a great time during our shoot and I can’t wait to shoot their wedding next October! Congratulations to you both and enjoy your sneak peeks!
I joined Paige and Ryan for a wonderful walk around Lemoine’s Point, just in time to catch the last of the colourful leaves. Paige and Ryan are a really cute couple, and we had a great time during the shoot. They laugh together and joke around a lot, and they are romantic and loving with each other. The best of both worlds. I can’t wait to work with them again when I shoot their wedding next summer. Congratulations to you both Paige and Ryan and enjoy your sneak peeks!!
Krista and Josh are getting married this coming winter, and when I met with Krista she explained that their wedding wasn’t the beginning of their new life together, it was a celebration of the life that Krista, Josh, their beautiful son Gauge and their adorable little doggy Lugnut already have. I love this idea!! So it only made sense that Gauge and Lugnut joined Krista and Josh for their engagement photos. Even though it was raining, damp and cold, they didn’t let it interfere with the obvious bliss they are feeling right now with their wedding just around the corner. Congratulations to you both, Krista and Josh, and enjoy your sneak peeks!!
I’ve decided to do something a little different with this post. I love black and white photos, and so does Mommy Amy, so this post is all black and white images. Even though I do love black and white images, I still always give a colour copy to the client of any photo that I convert to black and white. I know that I am terrible at narrowing down which photos should go into a post, and I know that I usually end up posting way to many photos. This post is yet another example of that. The McCluskey Family have family photos taken every year, and I LOVE that! I met them on what I think is going to be the last warm day of this year and had a fun filled couple hours with this wonderful family. Astin and Ever are two little ones with so much personality and it really shows in their photos. And Mommy and Daddy, Amy and Adam are very loving parents. We had so much fun that Ever feel fast asleep in the arms of his big sister, Astin on the way home from our shoot! Thanks so much for trusting these precious memories to me, McCluskey’s and enjoy your sneak peeks!
In late September I had the pleasure of meeting up with the Spoljaric family for a wonderful family shoot. I had met Mommy, Katie before as she a was a bridesmaid in a wedding I shot in 2012. But I hadn’t had the opportunity to meet Daddy, Jason or the sweet Baby Evan. He is the cutest little guy! And he has so much love around him with his Mommy and Daddy and Grandma and Grandpa who he obviously adores. It was a great shoot, that include three wardrobe changes!! It was great to work with The Spoljaric Family, I hope we get to do it again sometime soon. Enjoy your sneak peeks!!
Sonia, Joe and Kameron are a great family. I had the pleasure of working with Sonia two years ago when she designed a beautiful new kitchen for me, so I was so excited when asked me to share my skills with her and to take a lovely family portrait. And we didn’t have to go far. I was a little hesitant when she suggested her backyard for the shoot, but as soon as I saw it, my hesitations were gone and I knew their shoot would turn out beautiful. Kameron was a great helper in choosing the spots and posing so well for the camera. I can only hope that my boys are this loving with me when they are his age. Sonia and Joe are very cute together, making each other laugh, and giving each other very loving looks. It was a great shoot filled with so much love, just how I like it!! Thanks for trusting this moment in your life to me, Sonia, Joe and Kameron and enjoy your sneak peeks!!
Steph, Luke and I met on Queen’s campus. Rain was in the air. It was going to rain at any second, but we couldn’t reschedule because Steph and Luke live in Alberta and were only in Kingston for a few short days. I’m so glad we were able to get their shoot done. I love doing engagement shoots because it’s such a great way to get to know a couple. With Steph and Luke, I learned that they love to laugh together. In fact I could have done this entire post with only photos of them laughing and joking together. There was a very funny moment when an extremely fat squirrel fell out of a tree and made the loudest thump ever! Steph and Luke (and myself) thought this was the funniest thing, and I think it will be how they will remember this great shoot! I’ve already sent Steph a funny squirrel video on Facebook. I can’t wait to work with this great couple again next summer when they come back to Kingston for their wedding. Congratulations to you both Steph and Luke and enjoy your sneak peeks!
Amber and Corey’s wedding was my last one of the 2014 season and it was definitely finishing the season off with a bang. They had a gorgeous day, with the beautiful Fall colours complimenting their autumn theme. Amber and Corey traveled all the way from Alberta to share their day with family and friends at the Glen House Resort in Gananoque. Their ceremony was breathtaking on the waterfront under beautiful trees. Amber and Corey closed their ceremony with a wine ceremony. After photos, that did include handcuffs (Amber is in law enforcement) and since this wedding was on Thanksgiving weekend, their guests enjoyed an early turkey dinner followed by some crazy dancing!! Congratulations to you both Amber and Corey and enjoy your sneak peeks!!

In 2012 I shoot Courtney and Sean’s beautiful wedding in Brockville. Now, just over 2 years later, their family has grown by one! Meet Baby Finlay! He’s such a good baby! He only needed a couple breaks for quick little snacks, and the rest of the time he was relaxed and posed perfectly for his photos. He even let me put him in a tiny little boat which was fitting since the first time I met Courtney and Sean it was on a boat! And, he posed with the quilt that his Daddy wore on his wedding day. It was a wonderful way to tie in Courtney and Sean’s previous milestones with this new amazing one! Congratulations to you both, Mommy and Daddy, Courtney and Sean and enjoy your sneak peeks!!
The Fortune-McKeil-Lofthouse Family are a really fun bunch! I met them in Veronica and Anthony’s beautiful backyard for some great family photos. There was lots of laughter and jokes and it was a really relaxed shoot which really shows in their photos. It was a pleasure to work with such a lovely family! Enjoy your sneak peeks!!
