Elsie Perrin Williams Estate Wedding Photography

Ivy & Joe’s wedding was organized very quickly and I can honestly say that it was more organized than some weddings that have more than a year longer than they did! Just goes to show that a long engagement isn’t as necessary as some people will try to let you believe. What made this wedding so unique was that most of the wedding ceremony was not in English so it let me really test my visual cues to see what was going to happen next. It’s always so amazing to me just how much of language is explained with our bodies. As their big day was so unique I decided to make their blog post unique and show the actual wedding album that they ordered, they just let me know which images they wanted included and I designed the layout.

Ceremony and Reception location: Elsie Perrin Williams Estate

Catering: Culinary Catering

Hair and Makeup: Selah Vie Hair and Makeup Artistry

Dress: Davids Bridal

Wedding Photographer Ingersoll Ontario

I really enjoyed doing the wedding photography at Ingersoll Golf Club. There were so many great spots close together that it made for a very quick and fun shoot and the backdrop for the ceremony was just gorgeous. It had been threatening rain all week for Lindsay and Kyle but they stuck to their guns and went ahead with the outdoor ceremony and it stayed clear! This blog has more photos than most, but I just loved all of the vintage details from getting ready that I just had to include them!

Best wedding photography of 2013

This year I was lucky enough to be invited to photograph 26 weddings from London to Chatham, Cambridge, Stratford and Ingersoll. After my biggest year of weddings, looking back through each of them to make this blog post brought back a lot of great memories. It was incredibly hard to pick just one image from sometimes over 1000 images from the day but I limited my options to shots with both the bride and groom in it. Even though, from some weddings, my favourite shot was actually one of just the bride or of children being their natural selves. Some shots I’ve never posted online before and I’m excited to share them!

Christmas/ Winter themed engagement session

Merry Christmas! I hope that if you do happen to be reading this on Christmas day that it is with chocolate in your mouth and your smelling the lovely smells of dinner being cooked. I met Stephanie and Skyler to speak about their wedding next year and Stephanie and I found so many things in common like our love of crafts and DIY (check out her awesome blog here), dogs, vintage and all things cute, fun and lovely. I think those last few words really describe Stephanie and Skyler’s engagement shoot with props by Found Decor Company, as well and some of their personal items. The snow looked like a winter wonderland and it made for a very fun (albeit cold) shoot.

Creative photography London Ontario

Back at the beginning of the year when I saw about the popular Colour Run I knew that I wanted to do something with the coloured powder that is used. When I bought my car I found the perfect location and although it had overgrown a little we still make the most of the old decaying cars. I worked with a great team- Lily Black who is one of the most professional and talented models I’ve ever worked with, makeup by the amazing Shealee from Makeup and Visual Effects by Shealee, and Hair by the now Contessa Award winning Amanda Rendell at Studio H

Spring Bridal collaborative shoot

It feels like forever ago now but at the end of May I organised a collaborative bridal shoot using a bunch of amazing entrepreneur ladies. It started off with that I wanted to work with Paula of Azarha designs to photograph some of her very affordable handmade bridal and formal accessories. Then it grew to that we needed a dress where Natalie of the Petite Wedding Boutique came in and supplied us with the two handmade custom dresses and some of the jewellery and birdcage. Of course then we needed models and the lovely Shelbie and Megan (Orange Model Management inc) became involved with hair done by the amazingly talented Amanda Rendell and makeup by Elfriede Schmidt. Just to top it off I added props from Found Decor Company and Cake from Franchello Fine Desserts. I take everything I do as a learning process and I think I learnt a lot from this shoot, in particular that I need to work on using flash in daylight and also leaving more time for creative shoots, but I’m still quite happy with the results! I always encourage the ‘Shop Local’ motto so if there is a hair accessory or dress here that you like make sure to get in contact with Natalie or Paula!

Mothers day special and Spring Mini info

Spring is finally on the way (not that it really looks like it out my window) so here are the details of my Spring Mini Sessions

These 30 minute long sessions will take place in Gibbons Park in London and will be styled with vintage props including a couch (below) and teepee set from Found Decor Company

Prices start at $60 for 5 full high resolution images on disc with print release, $90 for 10 images and $120 for 20 images. You can decide what package you would like to go for after seeing the photos.

Can be used for Family, Kids, Newborn, maternity, Pets, Engagement, ‘In Love’, High school seniors, or for any other portrait session you can think of. 

To book a session please get in contact ASAP. Sunday May 26th will be the main shoot date but if you are not able to make it on that date some varying times will be available May 23rd- 28th. All images will be back in time for you to make prints for Fathers Day.

I guess I’m kind of getting a bit ahead of myself by speaking of Fathers Day, especially as we haven’t even had Mothers Day yet! For my special for Mothers Day I am giving a 20% discount off of any gift certificate bought in between now (April 12 2013) and Mothers Day (May 12 2013). Thats a saving of $60 on a 2 hour family shoot! 
To celebrate to Mothers Day special I thought I would share this shoot I did when I was at home in Australia last November, with Beth and her daughter Ruby. We picked pretty much the windiest day possible to be shooting on the Terrigal peninsula but we managed to still get some cute shots.

Part 2: Easter Mini Sessions

Hopefully you saw Part 1 yesterday which explains a little about the Easter Mini Sessions I did this year and will hopefully be doing again next year! I have loved seeing the feedback not only from the clients who had the sessions but also from the London community! As I mentioned yesterday we had back luck with the weather with the outdoor shoots being when it was -8 and the studio shoots from when it was 10 degrees outside so when I thought we would be able to get better shots of one of the littlest participants when he didn’t seem to happy outside I was more than happy to do a re-shoot at the studio.

Second shooter/ Bunny wrangler: Robin

The following photos were taken at the studio of the gorgeous brother and sister Arthur and Ava. How cute are their hats!
