Weddings

Marissa and Brendon - Mattson & Co, Hamilton Wedding Photographer

From start to finish, Marissa and Brendon had the perfect wedding day. These two just wanted to have an awesome day, surrounded by friends and family…at the end of the day, if they were married, they were happy! Mattson & Co. was the perfect location for their ceremony and reception. It was intimate and so romantic. We did their wedding photos at some Westdale locations where they had their first date! Here are some of my favourites from their wedding day :)

Scotty and Amanda - The Grand Olympia, Hamilton Wedding Photographer

Not too long ago, two of my best friends got married! It was such an amazing day. It was such an honour to stand up with them when they said “I do”! Because I was a bridesmaid, I wasn’t able to photograph the whole day…but that didn’t stop me from snapping a few photos throughout the day :) Here are a few of my favourites!

Steve and Jackie - Ancaster Mill, Hamilton Wedding Photographer

Being a photographer is such a cool experience. You get to connect with people you have never met, and reconnect with people you haven’t seen in ages. Jackie and I went to high school together. To be a part of her wedding day was so special. She is an amazing mother, friend, daughter….reconnecting with her and Steve was just wonderful. Their wedding at the Ancaster Mill was just picture perfect. Here are a few favourites from their stunning wedding day!

Kayla and Cody - Stonewall Estate, Niagara Wedding Photographer

This wedding was just amazing. Not only am I friends with the couple, but their long time love was a blast to celebrate. And we definitely did celebrate! Kayla and Cody’s wedding was filled with beautiful moments, with the perfect country backdrop at Stonewall Estate. We couldn’t have asked for a better day!

Nishya and Pedram - Honsberger Estate, Jordan Wedding Photographer

Nishya and Pedram had a wedding that will forever stick out in my memories. This super sweet couple tied the knot, and I felt like we had become such good friends by the end of the night. Filled with so much love, family, and good food, I can say I didn’t want it to end.

Jordan and Nicole - Sugarloaf Marina Wedding

I love shooting with Jesse James Photography! He has taught me so much over the years, and taken me to some amazing venues. Sugarloaf Marina is no exception! It provides such a beautiful backdrop for photos. Jordan and Nicole had such a unique wedding - the location we took the bridal portraits had all the farm animals! It definitely sparked joy. Here are some of my favourites from their wedding day.

Andrew and Kylie - Lakeview by Carmen's, Stoney Creek Wedding Photography

Thinking back to this perfect wedding day. My friends Andy and Kylie threw an awesome bash for their wedding. Filled with tender moments, amazing decor, fantastic company and great music. This one will definitely stick with me. Here are some of my favourite images from their wedding day at The Lakeview by Carmen’s

Justin and Samantha - Grand Olympia, Stoney Creek Wedding Photographer

Shooting for my little protege Amber Kay Photography is always so much fun. Seeing her bloom into such a beautiful artist is such a trip. I love it! Shooting this winter wedding with her at the Grand Olympia in Stoney Creek was such a blast. Thanks for having me, girl!

Richard and Katelyn - Camp Trillium, Rainbow Lake Wedding Photography

Sometimes, you shoot a wedding that just sticks to your soul. Katelyn and Richard's was definitely one of them. I mean, it's not everyday two love birds get married at a kids camp! Their wedding day was filled with rain, but they never let that stop them from having an amazing time. Thanks, Jesse James Photography for inviting me out to this one!

Also, really glad I was connected to Kindred Design & Decor Rentals - they did an amazing job decorating this beauty <3

Stephanie and Cory - Carmen's Banquet Hall, Hamilton Wedding Photography

I first met Stephanie 6 years ago. After our first session together, we became fast friends. I remember the first time we spoke, and she gushed about her boyfriend Cory. It was adorable, and I could tell right away that this relationship was special. When they decided to get married, I was ecstatic to document their engagement and wedding. Over the years, I have documented all of their milestones, and I can’t express how happy that makes me. Watching their kids grow up, and capturing them in the process in timeless images - man, that just hits me in the feels. So this blog post is dedicated to two special people, on Valentine’s Day (one day before their anniversary). I’m also including some additional photos of their family throughout the years, because if I’m taking a trip down memory lane, you should join me. Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Xoxo

Heather and Dane - Palletta Mansion, Burlington Wedding Photographer

Heather and Dane were amazing clients. I loved every interaction we had. I had only spoken with them via skype and a few times before their Canadian wedding reception at Palletta Mansion. These two met and fell in love in Australia, eloped in Iceland, and then had a Canadian wedding reception (which I had the pleasure of photographing). The day of their reception was just perfect. The atmosphere was so relaxed and fun. Definitely a wedding party I won’t soon forget!

Andy and Natasha - Cathedral Basilica of Christ the King, Hamilton

Andy and Natasha were the sweetest couple. When we met, they said they only cared about being married - and I could tell. It was so sweet, hearing about their intimate wedding planned for the fall. Natasha always loved the doors at Cathedral of Christ the King, so we managed to use it as a backdrop for their wedding photos. It was the coldest day - though you would never know. The couple, and their squad, braved the elements like champions. We had a blast! Here are some of my favourite images from their big day.

Cassandra and Scott - The Lakeview, Hamilton Ontario

Last summer, Cassandra and Scott said I Do in front of their friends and family at the Lakeview by Carmens. It was such a beautiful day. Cassie is a good friend of mine, and seeing her and Scott get married was a dream. These two are so beautiful, it's nearly impossible to get a bad photo of them. They are basically Barbie and Ken in life form :)

Their daughter Hannah is the cutest tiny human I've ever met, so photographing her for the whole day was super fun. This wedding is definitely a top 10 for sure. Cassie had tons of adorable beautiful details. Ah - enough talking and let's look at photos!!

Hillary and Jamie - Country Heritage Park, Milton Ontario

If you had asked me a decade ago if I would photography Hillary’s wedding, I would have told you it was a dream of mine…no really, an actual dream of mine. I had dreamt of her wedding for as long as we had been friends. Hillary and I met in our teens and made a fast friendship over art, photography, life and boys. You see, my friend is an incredible lady who knew her worth. She wouldn’t settle for just any man, so finding the right one took a while. Little did she know that man was right under her nose the whole time. Hillary and Jamie had known each other for years, and went on several first dates before it was time for their forever. As time went on, and I kept seeing adorable posts of these two love birds on social media; my heart burst when she posted about their engagement. My friend was finally getting married!

Fast forward to last fall, and I had the absolute honour of photographing such a special day! Complete with heartfelt moments, all the big belly laughs, lots of happy tears and even a dress names Hillary (you can’t make this stuff up – oh, and I should mention that it was pink…..which is totally my Hillary). I could gush about this wedding all day.

But let’s be real – you’re not here for that.  You’re here for photos! So without further adieu…<3  

Stephanie and Nigel - Windecker Woods, Cayuga Ontario

New website - new blog! My goal is to be blogging at least once a week. With my old website, I found it so challenging to get blogging done (it wasn't user friendly to say the least!). So here's to a new chapter, one filled with years of past beauty...yes I'm a tad bit behind here.

I wanted to start out with one of my favourite weddings from 2017. Stephanie and Nigel were a dream to photograph. When we first met over Skype, I fell in love with Stephanie. She has big curls like yours truly and that alone was enough for an instant connection. They had such a wonderful energy - one that could come through video chat! Impressive, right?! 

To say these two impressed me would be an understatement. Planning a wedding is challenging enough, but planning it from provinces away is a huge feat in itself! These two BC lovebirds planned a wedding at the beautiful Windecker Woods in Cayuga. This place is what wedding photography dreams are made of! Their day was filled with raw emotion, and the most beautiful DIY projects I have seen in a long time <3  

Thank you S&N for the privilege of documenting your love story!! Now, let's look at some pretty pictures!
