Specializing in Wedding and Family Photography in Kingston, Ontario and Surrounding Areas
On Family Day, I was fortunate enough to work with the McDonald family, who are growing their family by one in a just a couple weeks. I joined Mom, Isabelle, Dad, Jonathan, and their daughters, Maelle and Abby at their home and they are all participated in Isabelle’s maternity shoot. The girls made silly faces, and played with Mom on the bed and then made some cool art on Mommy’s growing baby bump. It’s a very warm and loving home, and their new arrival, another little girl, will be entering into a world full of love. It was a wonderful morning and I can’t wait to meet the newest member of the McDonald family very soon!! Congratulations to everyone and enjoy your sneak peeks!!
Chelsea and Joe had a beautiful winter wedding on the very last day of January. It was extremely cold, in fact, it was so cold that I had to ask the bride and groom and their wedding party told hold their breathes during the photos! Despite the cold, every single person, especially the girls with their bare arms, were troopers and smiled their way through the photos. I’m so glad that they put up with me, even after I said “only one more picture” at least 4 times, because their photos turned out so great!! After photos in Kingston, we headed to Wolfe Island for the big event! Chelsea was the most relaxed bride I’ve had the privilege to work with to date. She was at ease while finishing the final touches on their wonderful reception space. No detail was overlooked, and so much love went into all of the decor. Chelsea wore her mother’s wedding gown, and Chelsea and Joe were married in the same church that her parents, which added a special element of tradition to their magical day. It was a wonderful day and I’m so happy that I was a part of it. Welcome back from your honeymoon, Chelsea and Joe and enjoy your sneak peeks!!
In January, Sarah and Nevin visited Kingston from Calgary to do some wedding planning. During their visit, we met up at Lemoine’s Point for their engagement shoot. It was VERY cold, but Sarah and Nevin were troopers and smiled, hugged and kissed their way through out. Actually, they didn’t seem to mind the cold that much at all. They were so into each other, they hardly seemed to even notice the cold. I look forward to the next time I see them when it will be a lot warmer and it will be their wedding day!! Congratulations to you both and enjoy your sneak peeks!!

Sarah Rouleau Photography had an incredible 2014! Instead of posting a collection of “Best Of” photos from this past year of amazing weddings, I have collected my favourite photo of each couple from their most special day. I wanted to celebrate each beautiful bride and groom as my clients are what made my year so incredible. I was lucky enough to be able to shoot at gorgeous venues from The Muskokas to Ottawa, and plenty of spots in between, including the stunning Limestone City. Without my amazing clients, I wouldn’t be able to do what I absolutely love almost every weekend during the Summer and Fall, and I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people. Not only are the brides and grooms wonderful, but their family and friends are equally wonderful and I always have such a fun time at each wedding. I can’t thank each couple enough for trusting me to capture the memories from of one of the most important days in their lives. I know I say it a lot, but it is an absolute honour that I don’t take lightly. So THANK YOU to everyone who made 2014 so incredible! I can’t wait to see what 2015 has to offer!
Bayley and Jeff rang in 2015 in the best way possible! By getting married!! They started their day with a “first look” which allows for a very special private moment for a couple on their wedding day. It’s obvious from the photos that Jeff approved of Bayley’s beautiful dress. It was a very cold and windy day, so Bayley wore an amazing sweater knit by her mother that went perfectly with her dress. After a few quick shots outside, we moved inside to warm up and took advantage of the gorgeous interior, and the exposed brick walls of the Woolen Mill building. Later, the couple was joined by their closest friends and family for their ceremony with cutest flower girl and ring bearer, Sophie and Alex. The ceremony was performed by a close friend, Annie (a great way to make a wedding ceremony personal) followed by a lovely dinner at The Rivermill Restaurant, fireworks and sparklers and a balloon drop at midnight. It was a perfect night and it’ll be a great way for Bayley and Jeff to celebrate their anniversary every year! Congratulations to you both and enjoy your sneak peeks!
It’s an honour to have my work featured in the beautiful Ottawa Weddings Magazine and I love that these amazing couples are able to have their weddings shared with so many!!
I’ve known Nicki for many years, way back to my old Aldo days. I was so excited when she asked me to take engagement photos of her and her handsome fiancé, Joel over the Christmas break. Joel went to school at RMC so it was perfect spot to meet up for their amazing shoot. Since they both live in Alberta now, I really wanted to capture the essence of Kingston in their photos, as it holds a special place in their hearts. They’re a gorgeous couple and it was so hard to choose which photos to share because I loved so many, so this post is rather lengthy, but when you see their photos you’ll see why I had such a hard time choosing! Nicki and Joel are both relaxed and seemed to really enjoy their time in front of the camera. Their chemistry is clear and they hardly needed any coaching at all. They will be getting married this spring in a hot destination wedding, which sounds amazing on this very cold day!! Congratulations to you both and enjoy your sneak peeks!!
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!!
