Ancaster Wedding Photographer | The Ancaster Mill


Cheryl & John

How They Met

Cheryl and John initially met in high school, but they didnโ€™t really get to know each other until 2012. They were just friends for three years before they started dating. In 2015, they had their first date, and they’ve been together ever since!

There was really no question for either of us.

The Proposal


John proposed during a family photoshoot, outdoors at Ball’s Falls. John’s daughter, Sofia, was there, as he wanted the whole family to be a part of the engagement.

The Wedding

John and Cheryl had to reschedule their wedding twice due to COVID-19, but they finally had their big wedding, and celebrated with family and friends! Their wedding was at the Ancaster Mill, in Ancaster Ontario. They had an indoor ceremony at Ancaster Mill’s gorgeous Miller’s Chapel.

Getting Ready


John, and his best man Kyle, both got ready at the Barrack’s Inn, just up the street from the venue.


It was quite handy that the inn was so close, because it just took me (and later, the guys) a quick 5-minute drive to get to the Ancaster Mill to see how the girls were doing.

Once Cheryl and her maid of honour (and cake artist!), Cynthia were ready to go, we did some quick bridal portraits before heading to the chapel.

The Ceremony


John Shore officiated the indoor ceremony at The Miller’s Chapel, and he did a fantastic job. I highly recommend him to anyone and everyone!

The Wedding Party


Cynthia and Kyle made a fantastic wedding party. They were not only helpful, but they kept the mood light and upbeat (and stress-free!) with their hilarious senses of humour! I had the best time photographing these four all day!

The Newlyweds!


The mandatory bride and groom portraits, of course! The Ancaster Mill has so many great photo spots, you can really take photos pretty much anywhere. I do have some favourite photo locations though ๐Ÿ˜‰

The Reception

The reception was held in the Millview Room.

Congrats Cheryl & John!

Holland Marsh Wineries Summer Wedding Photographer | Newmarket Wedding Photographer


Emily & Adam’s Sneak Peeks

After almost a year off (thanks to the covid-19 pandemic, ugh), I shot my first 2021 wedding last weekend! It was a gorgeous August summer day at the Holland Marsh Wineries in Newmarket, where Emily and Adam held their outdoor ceremony. Here are some sneak peek photos from their fabulous day!

Newmarket Cake Smash Photographer


Louise’s 40th Birthday Cake Smash

During Louise’s 40th birthday cake smash photo session, she asked me how long it’s been since we’ve known each other – since I did her very first photoshoot with her dogs, for my first Dog Day fundraiser. So, I decided to look it up! Turns out Louise, the day we met was January 29th, 2012 – over 8 years ago! (We have an anniversary! Awwww). I was actually surprised we haven’t made it to 10 years yet, I feel like I’ve known Louise (and now, her family) forever!

In the 8 years that I’ve known Louise, we’ve done (and I just went through all my backup files and counted) 15 photo sessions together. It feels like so much more though because I also edit a lot of photos Louise herself takes (yes, I offer photo editing services as well! *toothpaste smile*). But yes 15 photo sessions is about right, as most years we do bi-annual photoshoots… and we’ve only done one this year… SO FAR…. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Two or three years ago, Louise mentioned that she wanted to do a cake smash for her 40th birthday. I told her sure, but I didn’t know if I would be doing photography still in 10 years, that’s a long way away to be planning. Turns out, Louise looks SUPER young, and to this day my daughter still thinks she’s in her 20’s ๐Ÿ˜‰

Part of her birthday photoshoot was done at her home, with her family, her cats (who did NOT wear party hats! ๐Ÿ™ ), and her gorgeous, hilarious children. The other part was done at Crossfit Newmarket – those photos may appear in a separate blog post, if Louise lets me post them ๐Ÿ™‚

And so, to my dear friend, my long-time client, the mother of my little photo BFFs, and just all around wonderful human being, I say to you…

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LOUISE!!!!!!!!!!

I’m so glad I could bring your vision to life! We always have so much fun during our photoshoots, and always laugh pretty hard too. Good times! Fun sidenote: This is our 4th cake smash we’ve done together, after Olive, River, and of course, Dryfuss! ๐Ÿ˜‰ (I didn’t actually shoot Dryfuss’ cake smash, Louise did, and then I did all the editing, but I’m still counting it. ๐Ÿ˜€ )

Newmarket Wedding Photographer | Holland Marsh Wineries


Jessica & Cameron

Jessica and Cameron‘s beautiful autumn Holland Marsh Wineries wedding, in Newmarket Ontario, is up on the blog today!

How They Met

Similar to the popular movie The Notebook, Jessica and Cameron met at their local town fair. The first thing Jessica remembers about meeting Cam, was his bright blue eyes, and how warm and comfortable she immediately felt next to him. The first thing Cameron remembers thinking when he first met Jess, was how beautiful her curly hair was, and how contagious and beautiful her smile was. They were both still in high school, and they dated for 8 years (and 1 month!) before they got engaged.

The Proposal

Cameron proposed while on a trip to Niagara Falls with Jessica’s family. They were all watching the fireworks over the falls when Cam pulled Jess over to the, side and proposed as the fireworks were going off overhead. It was an incredibly magical romantic proposal!

The Wedding

Jessica and Cameron had a Holland Marsh Wineries wedding in early November. The weather was chilly, but they had an indoor ceremony so everyone stayed warm. Except of course when we went outside for photos ๐Ÿ˜‰

Getting Ready

The girls got ready in the bridal suite at the Holland Marsh Wineries, while the boys got ready off-site.

I love ring photos, but I especially love when the couple gets a cute little ring box for the rings as well!
Fun fact: Jessica’s headpiece was actually the same one her mother wore at her own wedding! (“Something old” AND “something borrowed”?)

The Ceremony

As I mentioned earlier, the ceremony was held indoors. A great thing about an indoor Holland Marsh Wineries wedding ceremony, is that I can easily go upstairs and move around to get different angles of the ceremony.

The Newlyweds!

Jess and Cam ventured out into the chilly weather with me, to get some gorgeous photos from around the Holland Marsh Wineries property. The venue has so many great photo spots in a close proximity, so we didn’t have to walk very far, which saved us time and ultimately, didn’t have to be out in the cold for as long ๐Ÿ˜‰

Vineyard shots are usually some of my favourites at this venue! Especially with textured clouds in the sky!

The Reception

While we were outside taking photos, the clubhouse was converted from “ceremony” to “reception” (which was very quick, it only took about 10 minutes.). The tables were decorated with some autumn foliage, and somehow it was simple, yet elegant.

Kawartha Lakes Wedding Photographer | Coboconk


Megan & Jonathan’s Sunflower Wedding

How They Met

Megan and Jonathan actually met at a job interview! Jonathan thought “She seems nice”, while Megan thought to herself “He’s so handsome”. They went on their first date to Boston Pizza, and they must have hit it off because a year-and-a-half later they were engaged!

The Proposal

Megan and Jonathan were walking along the beach, looking for shells, when suddenly Jonathan had discovered a very exciting shell, and he brought it to Megan to show her what he’d found – it was an oyster shell with the ring inside!

The Wedding

Megan and Jonathan’s wedding has to be one of the cheeriest-yet-relaxed weddings I’ve ever been to. No one was rushing around, everyone was just enjoying the day. It was a great change of pace! The ceremony took place at Megan’s family cottage, in Coboconk Ontario. It was a bright sunny day with great weather, which matched the sunflower-theme perfectly! I also thought a sunflower wedding in October was pretty unique – it was awesome!

Getting Ready

Megan and the girls got ready inside the cottage, while the boys got ready in the boathouse. Megan didn’t actually put her dress on until 5-minutes before the ceremony was to start, and even then she was laid back and relaxed, and just as happy as I’ve ever seen a bride be! She had her two bridesmaids with her, as well as her soon-to-be 6-year-old step-daughter, Eloise. It was easy to see how much Megan and Eloise care about each other, anyone could tell that Megan was just as much in love with Eloise as with Jonathan!

The Ceremony

The ceremony was held outdoors, in the cottage’s backyard right by the lake. There was a large white tent set-up in case of bad weather – but happily it wasn’t even needed as it was a bright sunny day! Megan and Jonathan were married underneath the white tent, in front of about 50 of their closest family and friends.

The Wedding Party

The wedding party consisted of two bridesmaids, and two groomsmen, as well as Jonathan’s 6-year-old daughter Eloise. What a great group!

The Newlyweds!

The bride and groom (and lots with Eloise as well, of course!) photos were also done at the cottage, which I was thrilled about because there were lots of great photo locations!

The Reception

After the photos were completed, we all traveled about 1-minute down the road to the Coboconk Legion building. The hall was decorated with sunflowers as well, and everyone was happily chatting and having a great time!

Right after Megan and Jonathan were announced in, Eloise ran up to them and they gave her a hug, then they proceeded to the front of the room, just in front of the head table, to do their first dance as husband and wife.
