A Dreamy Beach Engagement Session
These two climbed over some scraggly rocks to get to the perfect spot, and were up for anything! I love when my clients take risks because they trust that I see potential in a certain location, and here it definitely paid off. When they weren’t laughing at me, they were sharing secrets (I think).
A Colourful Summer
I can honestly say that this session is one of my biggest accomplishments to date! This is exactly what I look for in weather, outfits, and amazing clients! I am the luckiest girl in the world right now, because of this family (and others like them). I can’t believe y’all allow me to do this and I get paid for it! Like, whaaaaat?
10 Questions for your wedding photographer & My Answers
It’s natural that a bride wants to find out more about me as a photographer, which is why I’ve put together these 10 most common questions you may have and my answers. You’ll be surprised at some of them! For those of you who know me, I’m sure even you will learn something new about me!
Brittany and Ethan, I just want to say THANK YOU! Thanks for being so willing to stick with me, taking time off of work, and dressing absolutely amazing! This Long Point golden hour fall session was such an amazing time with clients and I can honestly say that this photographer has become a close friend of mine. Brittany, of Brittany Deanna Photography is a kind soul and amazing photographer! You really need to check out her work! Sending my style guide was completely not necessary for these two, I know Brittany knows exactly what looks good in images! I’m sure you have to agree that she picked all the right outfits.
But this session was about so much more than pretty pictures. It was about spending quality time together. It was about exploring and finding amazing lighting (always looking for the glow). It was about tickles and laughter. And so much more. I’d have to say that this was one of the funnest sessions I’ve had! And that says a lot, because I always have fun. If any of you are wanting images with loads of colour, may I recommend visiting Long Point beach at this time of year? It absolutely is my favourite location that I’ve ever visited, it’s just too bad that it’s a bit of a drive.
Once again, Brittany and Ethan, thank you for this oportunity, I am so glad that I could make these wonderful memories with you, and I hope you can cherish these for years to come! Maybe next time Bear and Archer can join? That would be so much fun!!!
Here the glow just got SO REAL! I’m really starting to embrace all the colour that God has given us in our beautiful nature, what do you think?
I had the privilege of capturing this wonderful couple yesterday evening in honour of their third anniversary! Amy is a fairly new friend of mine, but more importantly, a role model and sheer inspiration. She is the beauty and brains behind Photography by Amy Peters. I am excited to announce that she and I will be working together on a few of the weddings she is photographing this fall, so keep your eye out for those images in the upcoming weeks!
Johnny and Amy met when they were very young, and you can see that these two were meant to be! They were celebrating their anniversary, and hadn’t had a photography session since their wedding, so the pressure was on! To say I was nervous, is an understatement, but thanks to Amy’s guidance when I got a little stuck, I am excited to say these images are more than I could have dreamed of! Johnny and Amy have such joy in their smiles, especially when they look at each other. They are so open and honest about their shortcomings, and this makes them even more endearing.
Working on these images was something I really needed today, as I have been questioning certain relationships; today I was reminded of the relationships that really matter, those of my husband and I in our marriage, my children and us in our parenthood, and God and I in our spiritual relationship. Those are the most important things in my life, and I think those are the right priorities for me. Don’t get me wrong, I love my friends, but those relationships seem to be so dependent on worldly things, and so often there are disagreements that can change things dramatically from one day to the next.
Johnny and Amy have a relationship that I admire, and am thankful to have as well. I wish you both many more years of happiness together as you grow as a family and in your marriage. I wish you God’s blessing in your future, because without that, it will not be the same. Thank you for this amazing opportunity, and I am so excited to work with you and become your friend, for many years to come!
I am first and foremost a wife and mother; and am based in South-Western Ontario. While it may seem like I run the business, I couldn't do this without my best friend by my side; my dear husband Bertus. I love photographing anything that shows love and joy, especially outdoor weddings. I am hoping that I can lead the life that God chose for me in His honour and influence many couples in my calling.
