Laura and Ryan - Mount Hope Farm, Hamilton Wedding Photographer

I had the pleasure of meeting Laura and Ryan 6 years ago when I photographed their engagement and wedding photos. I fell in love with them - they are not only amazing people individually, but together they make the sweetest couple. They have this salt of the earth quality to them. Today is a throwback to their wedding, which is still one of my favourites to this day! They got married at their family farm in Mount Hope, surrounded by just over 20 family and friends. How adorable!

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 :)

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

Carly and Girijan - Dundurn Castle, Hamilton Lifestyle Photographer

These two! When we did their session a few years ago, I remember saying "you'd think these were engagement photos". And guess what? Now they're engaged! And I'm shooting their wedding this year! (If the exclamation marks didn't give it away, I'm hella pumped). God, I love my job. The one good thing about having to rebuild my blog, is I get to have these little trips down memory lane.

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

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.

Ryan - Newborn

When my two best friends started dating, I was over the moon. Watching their relationship grow has been so sweet for me. I have known Scotty and Amanda since high school and they have both held a very special place in my heart. I was ecstatic to witness them get married, and I thought my heart was going to explode when they announced their pregnancy. Ryan is just the cutest little nugget. He was so alert during our session, only falling asleep at the tail end. I loved our time photographing him, especially the snuggles - man, can that kid suck you in! Naturally, I had to share some of this session. Let me introduce you to my out-of-this-world-handsome-nephew Ryan. Congratulations, Scotty and Amanda!

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!!
