Specializing in Wedding and Family Photography in Kingston, Ontario and Surrounding Areas
I truly love acts of thoughtfulness and Rob definitely proved how thoughtful he is. He contacted me in January with plans to propose to his girlfriend Laura in March. Rob and Laura met at Queen’s but no longer live in Kingston. They were making a trip back to the city and he wanted to use this opportunity to propose. He wanted me to capture the moment so that they could remember it forever. Of course I was on board! I dressed in my warmest winter clothes and found the perfect spot to hide out so that Laura won’t see me and my huge camera. I definitely looked strange hiding behind a big tree, peering through the branches and many people gave me some curious looks but it was all worth it for these great shots. You’ll see in this sequence of photos exactly how Rob popped the question, how shocked Laura was, when she says YES and even the moment that they finally noticed me. It was amazing to be part of this important moment and I’m so excited to share these photos with all of you! Congratulations again to you both, Laura and Rob!!
Meet Baby Madeline!! She is the beautiful daughter of new Mommy and Daddy, Kristen and Evan. I met this cute couple a little over 5 years ago when I shot their engagement photos. Since then they’ve gotten married and moved all around the country. They have now landed back in Kingston, with an expanding family. Madeline was such a good model and slept through most of her shoot. With Mommy and Daddy both in the medical field, it was important for them to include some furry microbes (or bacteria) in Madeline photos. I have to say that this was a first for me, but I’m always open to new ideas and the photos turned out so cute! I couldn’t be happier for this incredible family and I can’t wait to see Madeline again when I do her 6 month and 1 year milestone photos. Congratulations again to you both Kristen and Evan! Enjoy your sneak peeks!
Meet Baby Collins! She is the sweet little daughter of Jessie and Chad. She slept through most of her newborn shoot and was so tolerant of me moving her around while she was trying to enjoy a cozy nap. Jessie and Chad are so in love with their new little girl as you can see in these images.
Even though I’m just sharing these now, I was actually lucky enough to meet Miss Collins in early December. Jessie asked me to hold back on sharing their beautiful photos so that she could use the photos as Christmas presents. Of course I agreed because I think photos are the best present EVER!!
Congratulations to you both Jessie and Chad! Enjoy your sneak peeks, even though you already have all of these photos plus so many more!
What do you get the guy that has everything for Christmas? Well, Danielle had the perfect gift in mind! She put her beautiful wedding dress on again, got her hair and makeup done, then she went swimming in her gown and I was there to shoot the whole thing! It was so much fun and Danielle looked beyond gorgeous as she splashed around in Lake Ontario. She was so trusting as I directed her on how to pose, not that she really needed my help. I’m sharing only a few of her fantastic shots, but her lucky husband was the happy recipient of many many more photos, including many that I couldn’t share here because they are way to sexy and definitely for one man’s eyes only! It was a fantastic shoot and I’m so excited to now share them with you all!
Kate and Brad are engaged!! Actually they’ve been engaged for a few months now, but they asked me to hold back sharing these photos so that they could use them when they announced to their family and friends that they are about to embark on a new adventure in their lives. So now that the cat is out of the bag, I’m excited to share their beautiful photos with you!
You’d never guess it by looking at these photos, but these were actually taken in early December! It was a gorgeous day and we spent more than 2 hours walking around, taking in the spectacular weather and snapping some fun shots, including reenacting the proposal. Lemoine’s Point and Lake Ontario Park are two of my favourite spots in Kingston to shoot and Kate, Brad and I hit up both for their engagement photos.
Congratulations to you both again and enjoy your sneak peeks, even though you have all of these photos plus many many more!
Elise and Andrew are engaged!! Being coffee lovers, it seemed appropriate that they include their favourite drink and coffee shop in their photos. So I met them Downtown Kingston at the amazing Northside Expresso + Kitchen for some yummy coffee and some super cute photos. Later we ventured out into the freezing cold where Elise and Andrew’s fur-baby, Nessa joined in on the photo fun. Elise and Andrew are are totally in sync and obviously adore each other. It was a great engagement shoot and I have to send out a special thank you Jess and Cade from Northside for opening their cafe to us. I can’t wait to photograph this sweet couple’s wedding very soon! Congratulations to you both again, Elise and Andrew! Enjoy your sneak peeks!!
Julia and Garrett are engaged!! I met them at Garrett’s family’s cottage on Little Sand Lake on a gorgeous sunny afternoon in January. We couldn’t have asked for nicer weather or a more picturesque location for photos. After some great winter shots, we made our way to the amazing Downtown Kingston just for a change in scenery. Julia and Garrett are the perfect match for each other, which is clear in their photos. They know just the right way to make each other smile. It was a fantastic shoot, despite locking my keys in the car while it was running, and I can’t wait to work with this sweet couple again next year when they get married. Congratulations to you both again and enjoy your sneak peeks!!
Meet Baby Harlow! She is a beautiful little girl that made her save arrival into the world just after Christmas. New Mommy and Daddy Logan and Trevor are over the moon with their new growing family. Harlow wasn’t feeling especially sleepy when I met her, but I suspect that’s because she didn’t want to miss out on any of the action of her first photo shoot. We were able to get some great sleeping shots and some even better family shots. Thank you for trusting these memories to me, Logan and Trevor. Congratulations to you again, and enjoy your sneak peeks!!
Meet Baby Phillip! He is a truly sweet little boy who is very loved by his big brother and big sister Josh and Lauren. He wasn’t very sleepy on the day that I met him, so we didn’t get a whole lot of photos of him by himself, but we did get some great family shots! Josh is a little ham and had a great time in front of my camera. Lauren is a mommy in the making and is very loving with her little brother. Mommy and Daddy, Brandi and Jeff are obviously smitten with the newest member of their family. They have a very busy home and they’re handling it like the pros that they are! Congratulations again to you all!!
Jacqueline and Pat are married!! They celebrated New Year’s Eve with the biggest party of their lives and got married in front of their friends and family. We started their day with a First Look on Kingston’s beautiful waterfront. It was so incredibly cold but Jacqueline was a trooper in her strapless wedding gown and braved the elements making these gorgeous photos possible. After shooting the fastest I’ve ever shot wedding photos, we escaped to a warmer location for more photos. Jacqueline and Pat then started their celebration with their loved ones who hooted and hollered as they walked down the aisle. Everyone was definitely in the mood to party as the bride and groom said their vows in front of a stunning lit up LOVE sign. After their ceremony, there were yummy munchies like sliders, grilled cheese and pogos, there were funny speeches and the iconic shoe game was played before the dance floor was opened up for the night. It was a perfect night and I couldn’t’ have asked for a sweeter couple to ring 2018 in with! Congratulations again to you both Jacqueline and Pat! Enjoy your sneak peeks!!
