Jungle Cake Smash - Zion

Okay... it's a new year and I am going to (finally) get my butt in gear and start blogging more! We are starting out 2018 with this amazing session I did a few weeks ago! It was so much fun having this adorable little guy into the studio for his Cake Smash just before Christmas! This theme turned out so incredibly cute, it was so much fun to create this custom set for him!  Mom and I chatted and she sent me a few inspiration photos which included lions, and a safari/jungle type of feel! This is what I came up with!! :) He had so much fun destroying his cake and we got some of the cutest shots! 

Check out some of his session below!

I'd love to chat with you and create a set that is perfect for your child!

Chenelle & Joey || July 15th 2017

I don't know where to even start with this Wedding!! 

Chenelle and I first met in Waterloo a few years back when we were both living there. We had both signed up to play hockey and it wasn't long into the season before we were becoming great friends. We bonded over our dogs, Luna and Aurora, and they even had a few puppy play dates with each other. :)  

When I found out Chenelle was engaged I was SO excited for her!! She soon after asked if I would be interested in doing the photography for their upcoming Wedding as well as their Engagement Session, I had zero hesitation and said absolutely!! 

The first time I met Joey was at the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory where we shot their Engagement Session (which turned out insanely beautiful, ahh!). I immediately could tell how much love these two have for each other, and they were a breeze to work with. You can see it in the images I was able to capture both during their Engagement and their Wedding that they are crazy about each other, and it warmed my heart so much to capture such a pure and genuine love between two people. It made me even happier to know that a great friend of mine had found someone so amazing for her! 

Their wedding day was nothing short of perfect. After weeks of rain, they had an absolutely gorgeous day with shining sun and blue skies. The outdoor ceremony was held at a secluded little garden in Walkerton and it was absolutely gorgeous!! 

From the absolute bottom of my heart I want to congratulate this amazing couple on their marriage and many many years of happiness to come.  Thank you both so much for allowing me to capture such a special day in your lives. I feel so blessed to have been able to do this for you!



Jessica & Joshua || June 24th 2017

I first met Jessica & Joshua when I shot their Engagement Session at a beautiful conservation area in Niagara Falls last year! It was the beginning of Fall and the leaves were just changing over from yellow to orange, which made for stunning photos! From the moment I met these two, I could tell they were very down to earth and we got along instantly! Their love for each other made it so easy to work with these two, and posing was a breeze! 

Fast forward to June of this year, and I was shooting their gorgeous wedding! I can't even begin to tell you how in love with all of their decor I was! Seriously, one of my favourite setups to date. Everything had a rustic/vintage feel to it but at the same time it was so elegant! We started the day by doing a First Look at Jess' Parent's house just down the road from the venue, then went over to Willodell Gold Club (their amazing venue!). We shot their formals before the ceremony to ensure we had tons of time and I could not be happier with how these came out. Just like the last time I worked with them, they were so at ease in front of the camera and made my job SO easy! :) I love being able to capture natural posing that showcases the genuine love between two people, and this couple did exactly that. 

I am beyond thrilled I was given the opportunity to capture all of these special moments for Jess & Josh, and I cannot wait to share their entire gallery with them! 

For now, here are some of my favourite shots from the day!
