Brenda & Jason's Wedding!

Brenda & Jason tied the knot last Sunday! We took advantage of the cloudy skies and what I like to refer to as ‘Beyoncé Wind’ and these two totally worked it! With my second shooter/bff Becca by my side, the emotions on this special and beautiful day were captured from every angle. I feel so honoured to have witnessed and documented Brenda & Jason’s wedding day. Happy tears, sweet giggles, emotional speeches, beautiful details & special traditions, this wedding was truly magical.

Enjoy these previews, and check out the websites of the amazing people I worked with below!

GTA Photography Classes

For those of you who don't know, along with being a professional freelance photographer, I also teach photography! I work for an amazing company called GTA Photography Classes. I have been the photography instructor for their Teen 101 Photography course for almost 3 years and I absolutely love what I do. We offer private lessons, afterschool & camp programs, corporate events and workshops about, you guessed it, PHOTOGRAPHY! I am so incredibly grateful that I get to combine my love of working with kids and my passion for photography in this job. Part of what keeps me inspired in my own business is the energy and enthusiasm of my students when I'm teaching a lesson. I'm so happy that I was interviewed by the wonderful Eva and featured on the GTA Photography Classes website. Thank you to everyone who has supported me through my photographic career, it's even more wonderful than I imagined it to be, and there are so many more experiences and adventures to come.

Allie & Doug's Engagement Session!

Allie & Doug met me on Ward's Island for their engagement session yesterday at sunset and it was MAGICAL!!! It was a dream to photograph the special moments between these two at Golden Hour in their canoe (the perfect addition to their shoot, especially because it touches on where their love first blossomed; Summer Camp). I can’t wait to photograph their wedding next summer, the two of them were such naturals in front of the camera!

Enjoy some of my favourite photos from our evening shoot!
