Photography isn't just an piece of your wedding, but an experience from the moment we connect (often 1 yr prior) until receiving your wedding album & beyond. You don't just remember how something looked, you remember how you felt in every moment. When I started this business, my intention was for my brides to experience not just great photos, but enjoy the time we spent creating them.
Weddings shouldn't be stressed about less-than-ideal timelines & getting everything in done. The Wedding Experience is basically a compiled list of everything that every couple needs to ensure the most incredible wedding experience and I don't want to offer anything less than that! That's why the engagement session is a crucial part of the whole experience!
Easy online contract and invoice customized to your needs. Once we're booked and official, we'll start chatting about engagement session ideas! You will receive a guide with everything you'll need to know about the whole process!
After working together to choose the perfect season, location & style, we'll spend an hour together for your engagement photos! Your only job during your session is to love each other, I'll coach you through the rest! This is a time for us to get to know each other, get comfortable working together, and feel what it's like in front of the camera with no stress or expectations!
As we get closer to your wedding day, you'll receive questionnaires, tips and tricks to help you with your planning. We will finalize timeline details and answer any last minute questions you may have before the big day!
Your big day is here!! I am so honoured to always be told that I am a relaxing, stress-free presence during the day and I don't take that for granted. I capture every little moment and detail that you have put your heart and soul into so that your wedding album evokes your full memory, while keeping you calm and on time.
Your images will be delivered to you approximately 4 weeks after your wedding. This beautifully curated online gallery will be easy to download, share with friends & family, or print your high-res files! They're backed up for 10 years online so you have no risk of loss. They're also available on an easy-to-use mobile app so you can show off your photos wherever you go.
Most couples choose a custom designed leather album & we'll start as soon as you receive your online gallery! An album tells the story of your day in a way that no other product can. And it lives on to tell that story to your children and grandchildren. When you face trials in your marriage, sit side by side on the sofa and look through your wedding album together.
I don't know any couple who could do this and not be reminded of their love and the fact that they can make it through anything...as long as they have one another. We'll work together to design each spread of your book, choose cover options, and finalize details before it's printed and in your hands!
Intimately lost in each other no matter who is around, opting for that date night in, spontaneously bringing home ice cream, decorating your home from the pages of an Urban Barn catalogue, constantly traveling but always home for Christmas. Because when you hold his hand, you see the moment you met & your future at the same time. Because you cant wait to add your wedding photos to that box that still holds that first date movie stub.

Always! I am based in Ottawa, but have a wanderlust heart and always wanting to discover new places! My passport is ready and waiting for you.
I don't limit a future booking time, however I often book dates 10-12 months in advance. If you know your wedding date, it's better to book sooner rather than later so that you're locked in my calendar!
In order to make each wedding experience as personable and connected as possible, I only commission 20 weddings per year. I love to fully focus on each wedding as if I was a helping bridesmaid.
I’m proud to have one of the fastest turn-around times in the wedding industry with images & album preview ready 2-3 weeks after your wedding. You're also guaranteed to get a few sneak peak images within the first week!
To secure your date, I need a 30% retainer & online contract. Monthly payment plans or unscheduled payments between booking & balance due is easy as you'll have an online account to keep track of everything.
Absolutely not. In fact, because of how efficiently I work on the day of and the help I give you in preparing your family picture list. I'm proud to say most family formals on a wedding day with me are complete within 10-20 minutes.
I shoot digital & there are no risks! You’ll get approx 50-70 images per hour. I do take more but I take out the outtakes like blinks, test shots, duplicates etc. All the images are edited for colour, exposure, sharpness & white balance.
Absolutely! I have equipment as well as liability insurance and I'd be happy to provide your venue with a proof of coverage if required.
