Waterloo, Ontario Engagement & Family session!

A few weekends ago, I got together with Heather and Curtis, who have set their wedding date for January 2016, and we photographed their engagement session. Uptown Waterloo is one of my favourite spots to shoot in because of all the fun texture and buildings around, similar to what I found in Stratford!

I'm always drawn to 2 certain areas to photograph in, nature/farmland and urban textured areas like old buildings and things that are showing signs of age.

Heather and Curtis came to me as a referral from another fabulous photographer friend, who I completely adore and idolize their work, so I knew that I HAD to make this incredible. The images we created made us all very happy and even more excited for their wedding day.

One thing I love about my engagement sessions is the opportunity to further build the friendship and bond I share with my clients. Its a great way to just hang out and spend time together and in the process, snap a photo or two. :-)

Here is the rundown of their e-sesh in Uptown Waterloo, Ontario.

Stratford, Ontario Engagement Photography

A terrific little gem of a city, Stratford, Ontario marvels me every time I visit. Its charm, the texture and endless photography backgrounds make for fabulous Wedding photography and Engagement photography sessions. I always look forward to visiting, and my shoot with my bride and groom, Melanie and Neil was no exception. The photos just took themselves, and I was so happy with the finished product. Here are some samples from our shoot together - needless to day I can't wait for the big day!

Whistle Bear - Cambridge, Ontario Wedding - Alex & Matt get married!

After a long cold winter in Ontario, it seems as though we have finally been blessed with nice Spring weather! Alex & Matt's gorgeous wedding at Cambridge's eloquent Whistle Bear Golf and Country Club couldn't have been nicer!

All in all, it really was one of those weddings where I felt like I could have been wearing a bridesmaid dress and gotten away with it. The entire wedding party were so amazing, fun, chill, happy go lucky, quick to smile, gorgeous, full of laughs, and 100% totally there for their friends Alex and Matt.

What made this wedding one-of-a-kind for me, was the fact that the brides gorgeous mum HANDMADE the wedding gown! AND ALL the bouquets/boutonnieres! The level of talent and creativity displayed at this wedding and by the bride and her mum was astounding. I have SO much appreciation for crafty talented folks! The bride and groom had informed me that they had been very hands on with all their wedding decor and details, which I love. It just has this way of adding a super personal touch to the day, and having your personality shine through all those little magical touches that make the day even more memorable.

It made me so happy to have been there for them that day, and I'm pleased to post some fun samplers from their day. As always, Whistle Bear shined with their impeccable service, and luxurious venue. A very big thank you, Whistle Bear for being such amazing hosts!
