Meet The Ridgley Family! I’ve known Mommy and Daddy, Jessie and Matt, for years now since I shot their engagement and wedding photos in 2013. And nothing makes me happier than photographing past brides and grooms as their families grow!
Yesterday I had the honour of documenting Jessie and Matt’s new life together, along with their beauitful children, Raelynn and Eddie. It was a chilly morning, but we couldn’t ask for a nicer setting or a more perfect sprinkling of snow. Even though it was cold, Rae and Eddie were in great moods and ready for some sweet photos, only needing one little warm up break. It was a great shoot and I’m overjoyed to see the Ridgley Family thriving! Thanks for trusting me with your memories! Enjoy your sneak peeks!!
Samantha and Matt are engaged!! And after being rained out from our first attempt at their engagement shoot, we gave it another try… but this time it was during a windy storm. Luckily Samantha and Matt are troopers and you can’t tell how cold they actually are in their photos. And they masterfully hid the fact that they were probably cursing me because I was bundled up. But let’s face it, I don’t need to look good for their photos. Samantha and Matt are a really sweet couple, and their huge fur-baby Tucker is even sweeter, smiling for photos despite the alarming amount of squirrels that were obviously just sitting far enough away to torture him. It was a great shoot and I can’t wait to work with them again when it’s much warmer next year when they get married. Congratulations to you both and enjoy your sneak peeks!
Heather and Mandeep are engaged!! And they are incredibly busy people! I was happy that we were able to find a time where we were all available, when Mother Nature was in a good mood, and when there was still a tiny bit of colour left on the trees. As we started their photos they explained to me that they didn’t have any good photos of them together and they feared that they couldn’t take a good photo but I believe that I was able to blow that myth out of the water. Heathear and Mandeep are so cute together, constantly laughing and joking around. Their obvious connection jumps off the screen. It was a great shoot and I can’t wait to work with them again next summer when they are getting married! Congratulations to you both again on your engagement! Enjoy your sneak peeks!
Emily and Bryce are expecting their first baby!! They are a very busy couple, and this day was the only possible time for these photos before this little one arrives. When the weather didn’t coorperate with us this past weekend, I was so greatful that they live in a building with a nicely lit common room, and a balcony that over looks Kingston’s beautiful skyline. Emily and Bryce are obviously excited about their growing family. They’ve decided to let the sex of the baby to be a surprise and Bryce is convinced that they’ll be meeting him or her before Emily’s due date. It was a really fun shoot and I can’t wait to meet this little baby when they arrive at their newborn shoot. Congratulations to you both again and enjoy your sneak peeks!!
Stephanie and Jen are married!! They had a beautiful wedding ceremony overlooking the fall colours at the Inverary Golf & Country Club. It was chilly not no one seemed to notice. There was laughing and cheering even during the ceremony. After photos Stephanie and Jen’s guests were treated to a delicious dinner, funny and touching speeches and musical performances by their wedding party, MC and Stephanie’s mother and aunts. Then it was time for dancing! It was an amazing day and it was the perfect way for me to close my 2018 wedding season. Congratulations to you both again Steph and Jen!! Enjoy your sneak peeks!!

Meet twins Baby Benjamin and Baby Katharine! There are the sweet new addition to the Rauh family. Mommy and Daddy, Jennifer and Michael and big brother William are all so in love with these two little bundles of joy. I was completely blown away by how this family already seemed so at ease with having two new babies in the house. Jennifer’s strength is something I can only hope for. Even though this brother and sister were born early, they’re healthy and content babies already. Benjamin is definitely calmer and Katherine, with all the hair, is very happy to let you know exactly what she wants.
I have to admit that I’ve shot twins only one other time, and it wasn’t the most sucessful shoot. But Benjamin and Katherine’s shoot was easier than some of my single baby shoots. The trick was to keep them together and both babies immediately relaxed and were obviously conforted by the others presence. It was amazing to witness.
I can’t wait to photograph this family again when these two littles ones celebrate their six month and one year milestones! Congratulations to you all again and enjoy your sneak peeks.
Diane and Matt were married on Thanksgiving weekend in a beautiful ceremony that included extremely touching and personal vows. Following the ceremony, and some rainy photos, Diane and Matt’s friends and family enjoyed delicious food and the funniest wedding speeches that I’ve ever heard. Everyone was in stitches as their wedding party and family members recounted how they met and offered marital advice. No detail was over looked including a volleyball themed wedding cake that reminded everyone of how the couple met while playing volleyball. Next it was time for dancing, and there was so much dancing!! Diane and Matt surprised their guests with a live performance by an incredible belly dancer, and then Diane was surprised by bridesmaids and friends with a perfectly choreographed dance to one of their favourite songs. It was such a fun day and I was honoured to be there to capture every special moment. Congratulations to you both again, Diane and Matt! Enjoy your sneak peeks!!

Jessica and Brad are married!! They tied the knot on a beautiful Saturday in September. The ceremony took place on Howe Island, at Jessica’s family cottage. Jessica started the day by surprising her bridesmaids with her gorgeous wedding gown which obviously took their breath away. Next, it was Brad’s turn to be speechless as he and Jessica opted for a First Look. As we were shooting their portraits, a fat orange cat decided to join us and despite being removed from the property several times, he was very persistent about attending this wedding, including making an appearance with the bride and groom during their ceremony. I am convinced that he was representing someone that couldn’t be there in person, but obviously was there in spirit. Following the beautiful ceremony which the bride arrived to on a boat, everyone made their way to The Discovery Center for a delicious dinner, funny speeches and so much dancing. It was a fantastic day and I couldn’t be happier for this amazing couple. Congratulations to you both again, Jessica and Brad! Enjoy your sneak peeks!!
