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.

Jessica & Cameron’s Sneak Peeks

Now that Jessica and Cameron are back from their fabulous honeymoon in the Dominican Republic, I can share some sneak peek photos from their Holland Marsh Wineries wedding! They lucked out for sure, as just a few days after their wedding was when all this snow started falling!

They had an indoor ceremony (and a good decision that was, because it was coldddd outside!), which was lovely, and officiated by Jessica’s aunt.

After the ceremony, we did brave the cold and venture outside for a little bit to do some outdoor wedding photos, while the ceremony area indoors was converted to the reception room. (Moving chairs and tables.) Jess and Cam kindly did not make their guests join them outdoors – they enjoyed the warmth inside on the upper level while the room was being converted.

Hockley Valley Wedding Photos | Orangeville Wedding Photographer


Shannon & Kyle’s Sneak Peeks

I knew Shannon and Kyle’s Hockley Valley wedding photos would be different, because this time, the bride was my sister! Shannon has always been unique – hilarious, random, and a bit crazy. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Above (right), yes, that’s my daughter wearing a hotdog costume. Sadly it wouldn’t fit over Shannon’s wedding dress (she owns the costume), but I’d say it was definitely the highlight of the reception!

Anyway, I’m getting ahead of myself!

Shannon and Kyle got married at the Hockley Valley Resort in Mono, Ontario (15 minutes from of Orangeville). It was a HOT summer July day, and the weather forecast wasn’t looking good…
Weather Forecast July 2019

But by some miracle, the rain held off and we had clear skies until later in the evening! (The heat was still pretty brutal though! I’d say 2nd only to the heat on Sabrina & Mason’s wedding day!)

I was Shannon’s matron of honour (and wedding day coordinator, I had my video camera on a tripod that I was moving around, and my 3 kids were there so I had to play “mom”, as well as “dance mom” with some costume changes since my kids did 2 performances during the reception – I wore a lot of hats that day!), so Julie from Julie Broadbent Photography came out and shot most of the day for me up until the beginning of the reception, when my matron of honour duties were over, and I could take over the photography. (I’m doing all the post-processing.) Julie was the perfect photographer for the job, as she knows Hockley Valley Resort like the back of her hand, and was just generally wonderful! Thank you Julie!!

Shannon and Kyle got married outdoors, under the lovely draped tent on the Montclair Patio, and the reception was held in the Aida ballroom.

As it turns out, my daughter is quite the partier. She danced until the reception ended at 1am, and then she helped us clean up!

Congrats guys – more photos to come!

Newmarket Wedding Photographer | Newmarket Wedding Photos | Madsen’s Greenhouse


Corrie & Justin

I have some Newmarket wedding photos to share today! Corrie and Justin got married at the ever-popular Madsen’s Greenhouse in Newmarket. I’ve thought long and hard about how to describe the “theme” of Corrie and Justin’s wedding. There was foliage, birdcages, birch tree decorations, leaves, lavender… after much thought I’ve decided to describe it as an “Enchanted Forest” theme. It was truly beautiful! (Well done, Corrie!).

How They Met

Now here is something you don’t hear too often… Corrie and Justin met while they were on vacation in Cuba! Justin was there with his buddy Alex, and Corrie was there with her 2 friends (Lauren and Kristen). Lauren wanted to meet Alex because they both went to Brock University. They all ended up hanging out together for the rest of the vacation, and they had a blast together! Corrie and Justin both thought that they had a lot of fun together, but they assumed they would never see each other again once they got back to Canada.

When they got home from Cuba, they added each other on Facebook and exchanged phone numbers. Since Corrie worked at a golf course, and Justin loves golf, Corrie invited Justin to go golfing. It was the summer, so they also attended various pool parties and outdoor get-togethers before they actually started dating.

The Proposal

It wasn’t until 8 years later that Justin popped the question! It was the weekend after Corrie’s birthday and Justin had planned an outing for that weekend, which was a complete surprise. Corrie came home from work and was greeted with flowers and wine. It took a while to notice, eventually Corrie noticed that her adorable dog Ava was wearing a new custom dog tag, which asked if Corrie wanted to marry Justin. Of course Corrie said yes! We celebrated by doing a waterfall tour and visiting the Eugenia waterfalls and a couple others, and exploring the outdoors for the day. Corrie said it was perfect!

The Wedding

The Bride & Groom!

Once Corrie and Justin were all pretty, they opted to do a First Look so they could maximize the time with their guests after the ceremony.
After that we went right into bride & groom photos. I must say, these two are fantastic in front of a camera! I don’t think I’ve ever shot so many bride & groom photos in such a short period of time!

The Ceremony

It was a perfect day to have an outdoor ceremony!

The Reception

Here’s where I will show you a bit of what I’m calling the “Enchanted Forest” decor!

I LOVE how Corrie and Justin did their seating chart! The logs, the moss… love it! And the head table “Mr. & Mrs” sign? Come on – it’s perfect!

Reception tables! It all goes together so elegantly. And the birch-tree-candle favors (made by Justin!)? Adorable.

This is not a real cake (Corrie and her mom baked cupcakes!), but it is such a cool idea! If I remember correctly, Corrie told me her mom made this faux-cake out of pieces of birch tree, and then made a cute little cake topper with pinecones, decorating them to look like a bride and groom. And she even included a dog, to represent Corrie and Justin’s dog Ava!

I always love to see how couples can decorate the same venue differently!

All in all, it was a fantastic day, and I’m just thrilled I got to be a part of it!

Congrats Corrie & Justin!
