Bellamere Winery Ontario Wedding Photography

Bellamere Winery Ontario Wedding Photography

Angelika and Matt were married almost a year ago now and I wanted to make sure their November wedding was up on the blog! They got ready at the Delta Armouries hotel and as they didn’t have a second photographer it was great that they were both getting ready at the same location so I could run between the rooms to capture each getting ready. They were married at Our Lady of Czestochowa Polish Catholic Church in London then as it was November and they had decided they did not want to see each other before the ceremony, it was light enough just for us to get a photograph of all of their guests on the front steps of the church then head to Parkway Garden Centre who were nice enough to let us use their space for some wedding party photographs. It was then to Bellamere for some family photos followed by the reception. We had a rainy night and I loved how the night shots came out!

I had known Chantelle and Kyle for years, she was my go-to crochet outfit maker for a bunch of my newborn/ cake smash props. I photographed their family a bunch of times and was so happy when they asked me to photograph their big day. On a chilly fall day last year Clara and I captured them getting ready then their amazing first look at Fanshawe Pioneer Village. We had fun incorporating their love of superheros into their wedding party photos and their kids- the super adorable ring bearer and flower girl. The outdoor ceremony on the farm was beautiful and we were even able to get some awesome fog shots of the two newlyweds and then later in the night, dramatic rainy night photos. The reception was a lot of fun with many big moments captured and possibly the best last photo of the night ever (sorry Chantelle just had to share lol).

Arva Ontario engagement photography

The big day is here for Sarah and Antonin! I photographed them at a location that was special to them for their Arva Ontario Engagement Photography. I’m excited to be photographing their big day today at The Elm Hurst Inn. 
Tell us the story of how the two of you met.
We went to high school together and later in life connected and started to become friends and eventually he asked me to be his girlfriend and 3 years later we are getting married!
Tell me the proposal story (the long version is fine)
We had picked out my engagement together a few months before so I knew it was happening but didn’t know when.
He surprised me by taking me to the place we had our first kiss and there was a note on the fence that basically said I love you and always have, I turned around and he was on one knee and I said yes ! Then went out for dinner 🙂
How do you hope your friends and family see your wedding?
As a romantic simple loving day.

Spring Engagement Photographer London Ontario

Spring Engagement Photographer London Ontario

Miranda and Dave are such a sweet, loving couple that it was super easy to photograph their engagement session back in the spring with the Magnolia trees at Springbank Park. They were in full bloom and the clothing choices they made were perfect for the scenery in the photographs. I’m excited to photograph their wedding today in Sarnia, and so glad that there should still be some fall leaves on the trees which will give a completely different look to the engagement photos. I personally love the variety of getting photos during different seasons.

Thanksgiving weekend was Courtney and Matt’s 1st anniversary and while there are still yellow leaves on the trees I wanted to share their wedding blog with you. The images below are the couple’s album and it is always interesting for me to see which images that they love most. You might recognize this gorgeous couple (and wedding party) from my banners that I have at the bridal shows. I know that the puppy photo is always a hit and it probably one of my fave wedding photos I have ever taken- I honestly squealed and hugged Courtney when she told me that they still had enough puppies for each of the bridesmaids to hold.

Elm Hurst wedding photographer

Elm Hurst wedding photographer

Sommer and Gary are the kind of clients that feel like hanging out with friends every time I get to see them which I’m happy to say will be every few months as they have had a bouncing baby boy that I will get to photograph :). I first met Sommer at Brianne & Craig’s wedding and their engagement session was one of my favourites of last year. Their wedding held at the Elm Hurst Inn in Ingersoll had an elegant woodland feel and Sommer’s hair by the amazing Selah Vie brought the whole look together. Their amazing vendors made the day wonderful and looking through these photos which are the couples album makes me excited to be back at the Elm Hurst soon and to see their little man (and them) in a few months time!

Vintage car engagement photography Exeter Ontario

Back in the spring I had the pleasure of photographing Cecelia and Rob’s  engagement session in her parents yard with his fathers vintage car. Cecelia and Rob met when Cecelia was working the upholstery of the 1926 Willys Knight with suicide doors. We had fun with using some more dramatic light and having a Bonnie & Clyde inspired shots with the vintage guns.

Mary and Kris were married around a year ago at Purple Hill Country Hall in Thorndale, Ontario. We captured all of the beautiful ladies getting ready at the Elm Hurst Inn and then headed to Purple Hill for the outdoor ceremony followed by family photos- which you will see here, this is the couple’s album of all of the most important moments and portraits.

The day went smoothly even when things went wrong thanks to the Unmistakably you team, but there were many great vendors.

I’m excited to be off to photograph Sim and Jeff’s wedding today. Back in the spring we photographed their engagement session at Waterworks park in St Thomas. The couple live in St Thomas so it was important to them to go to a familiar park and I loved capturing their love and playfulness that shined through. St Thomas Engagement Photographer capturing candid, timeless and fun images.
